How We Practice
At BCA our treatment emphasis is on chiropractic adjustments to the spine to restore motion and improve spinal alignment. Our ultimate goal is for you to return to your normal activities and allow you to get back to life! There are plenty of chiropractors on the eastside, however BCA is one of the few to provide the effective combination of chiropractic adjustments, functional rehabilitation and massage all in one convenient location. This holistic approach ensures that we are able to address the root cause of your problem rather than masking your symptoms only to have them return again further down the road.
Chiropractic Adjustments are the Most Essential Part of your Care
Spinal joints that aren’t moving well alter the mechanics of the spinal joint system leading to pain and dysfunction. Chiropractic adjustments add motion to these stuck joints and may reduce nervous system disruption.
Sometimes a specific, highly-accurate chiropractic thrust is used. Or, an instrument may be used that delivers carefully directed energy. At times a slow, constant pressure is used. Several areas may be adjusted, or just one. Sometimes a popping sound is heard. We rely on adjustments to help your body “right itself”. Most patients report a sense of well-being and ease. After all, if adjustments weren’t pleasant, our patients wouldn’t return for the visits needed to restore and retrain their spine.
Soft Tissue Mobilization
Mobilization is designed to improve mobility to muscles, tendons and fascia. Improved mobility decreases pain and improves posture and joint function. We use several techniques – such as sports massage, deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, and strain-counterstrain.
We will guide you in an exercise program to rehabilitate your spinal condition. We emphasize training your core strength and improving your balance and motion control in order to better hold your spinal adjustments. Progressive exercise will restore you to normal activities and/or sports performance.
We educate you on how to best manage your problem during and after your chiropractic care. This may include: self-care strategies, home exercises, and work ergonomics. We can also advise you or your trainer on how to best reach your fitness goals.
