At Family Life Chiropractic, 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 Wellsville office.
We provide spinal correction utilizing gentle 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, Dr. Kris is trained in over 18 techniques with nearly 10 years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
We are excited to be able to share the latest technology for our patients! We are one of only a dozen practices in the United States to have the latest Sigma Adjusting Technique! This NASA inspired instrument allows our practice to provide neck, back, hip, shoulder, knee and other area adjustments with NO "Cracking", "Twisting", or "Popping" and offers a visual assessment and correction. Perfect for those who have difficulty with traditional chiropractic adjustment techniques or those who have mobility issues.
One thing that sets Dr. Kris apart from many other chiropractors is that she doesn't "crack your back and send you out the door". Dr. Kris makes sure to find the root of the issue. Once the specific cause is revealed, Dr. Kris has her staff work with patients to build up weakened or imbalanced muscle groups to "re-train" the body. Our patients are given special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the office initially then in the comfort of your own home to 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.
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 patient is a whole person, and helping 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? Dr. Kris can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs
