Although many people associate the idea of a chiropractic clinic with automobile accident injuries and sports injuries, there is a lot more to the practice than that. While many practitioners focus solely on spinal health, Dr. Reza Ghassemi of Reza Chiropractic in St. Petersburg emphasizes diagnosing, treating, and preventing discomfort.
Our non-invasive, alternative approach seeks to alleviate discomfort caused by abnormalities of the musculoskeletal system and to improve overall health and wellness of patients. Instead of masking symptoms with prescription medications, Dr. Ghassemi provides patients with a comfortable environment and the proper tools needed to promote the body’s natural healing ability.
What Chiropractic Services Do We Offer?
Each patient is unique and requires a customized treatment plan, which is why our St. Petersburg chiropractic clinic offers several care methods to better serve your body’s needs.
People suffer from chronic pain, but there are many ways to treat skeletal misalignments, connective tissue placement issues, or other bodily irregularities. A few common methods of treatment and healing our chiropractic clinic offers are spinal adjustments and at-home “blueprint” exercises.
- Spinal Adjustments: When a patient is experiencing an inhibited range of motion, joint pain, neck pain, or back pain, spinal adjustments can restore the affected area to health. The practitioner will apply a gentle, controlled force on the affected vertebrae or joint; this could be a twist or gentle thrusting motion.
- “Blueprint” Exercises: In addition to in-office procedures at our St. Petersburg chiropractic clinic, our staff equips patients with an at-home technique called “blueprint” exercises. This technique allows patients to further their muscle strengthening and misalignment correcting at home without supervision.
Poor posture, overused joints, overworked muscles, and trauma can all lead to skeletal misalignment and muscle problems. In addition to treating these common issues at a chiropractic clinic, there are many lesser-known benefits to these corrective exercises including:
- Decreased neck, shoulder, and back pain
- Reduced joint pain
- Lowered blood pressure
- Improved posture
- Enhanced immune system
- Migraine pain relief
- Reduced inflammation and swelling
Traditional taping methods attempt to stabilize the joint by restricting range of motion and decreasing circulation, which is not ideal for athletes or patients living active lifestyles. At Reza Chiropractic Clinic in St. Petersburg, we use lightweight Kinesio Tape on our patients and the athletes we train because it helps to treat several ailments while allowing uninhibited, free movement.
Kinesio Taping can be used to treat several bodily issues and injuries such as:
- Shin splints
- Sprains and strains
- Plantar fasciitis
Lifestyle Advice and Nutritional Counseling
People do not always treat their bodies with respect, but for those looking to make a change, our St. Petersburg offices offer lifestyle and nutritional counseling. The food you consume and the activities you engage in affect your overall wellbeing, and in some cases, your choices can even inhibit your ability to heal effectively.
