At Peak Performance Chiropractic & Acupuncture, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Aubrey office.
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Sherri Routledge has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
Graston Technique® and Gua Sha are innovative forms of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables the doctor to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. These techniques utilize specially designed instruments made from stainless steel, bone or jade to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis Scar tissue and adhesions) or chronic inflammation. This technique is used to:
- Decreases overall time of treatment
- Foster faster rehabilitation/recovery
- Prevent sports injuries
- Resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent
Dry Needling is an extremely effective technique that uses an acupuncture needle to “release” painful or knotted areas in your muscles. Many of us have areas in our body with muscle tension or “Trigger Points” By inserting an acupuncture needle into these tight areas, we elicit a “twitch response” followed by an immediate and long lasting relaxation. Because the needle can treat very deep parts of the muscle, the technique can achieve great pain relief. Dry needling not only helps pain relief but can be effective to heal overuse sports injuries, help improve muscle healing time, improve blood flow, and stimulate a muscle to work better.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Sherri Routledge can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
