Like most healthcare specialists, there are defining factors common among highly-rated and professionally-recognized chiropractors.
Aside from simple characteristics that make a chiropractor desirable to the community (i.e. personalized attention, mindfulness, respect, etc.,) there are other more definitive qualities that reflect top chiropractors who are redefining (of have redefined) their practice.
One of the most common characteristics among top chiropractors are those who research and adopt the latest chiropractic technologies that suit their overall approach and patient needs.
Such technologies are not just chiropractic-related, or specific to spine health, but also universal systems that are applicable for many situations that benefit from precise diagnoses/prognoses and advanced pain relief.
A good example is the class IV K-Laser therapy that's being adopted by several top chiropractors. The K-Laser is harmless tool that promotes rapid cellular regeneration and tissue rebuilding.
Among them is Dr. Mik Hamilton, a pioneering chiropractor in Berkeley, CA with over 40 years of experience evolving the best practices in spine and postural correction.
Since acquiring the K-Laser, Dr. Hamilton has helped many of his current patients accelerate healing in problematic areas. Many new patients have come to his chiropractic office seeking this particular laser treatment, as it's becoming well-known for its healing effectiveness in countless ailments involving hard and soft tissues, fascia, and ligaments around joints.
While some chiropractors center their practice (and overall business model) on quick-fix adjustments and frequent patient visits (which are a reaction to pain and symptoms,) some of the most reputable chiropractors are recognized by their proactive chiropractic programs that produce sustainable changes. While these more formal programs alleviate pain just as much as the quick-fix, the emphasis is long-term and gradual progress that enables patients to realize lasting results from treatment.
A great example of this approach is Pettibon System®, which was developed over 30 years from Dr. Burl Pettibon. In essence, the Pettibon System is comprehensive rehabilitation program that focuses on the spine's hard and soft tissues to help patients achieve an ideal spine position.
This unique and highly-effective chiropractic system uses a wide spectrum of tools and modalities spanning from standard spinal manipulations to using body weights on patients to correct spinal displacement. To learn more, visit the official website of the Pettibon System.
These are just a couple aspects that truly define today's chiropractors who yield outstanding patient outcomes. Do you know a chiropractor who is redefining their practice by being a proponent of change in the healthcare community? Let us know is the comments section below.continue...
With the abundance of options for chiropractic care, finding a good chiropractor is easy. However, finding a great chiropractor who can help alleviate pain for the long-term is not quite as easy.
When searching for the best chiropractor to meet your needs, it's important to not only look at each prospective chiropractor's experience and credentials, but also his or her ability to adapt and thrive in the modern world of spine health and chiropractic care.
In this article we feature three prominent chiropractors who have been pioneering the practice by delivering unique and innovative forms of chiropractic care and spinal treatment.
Dr. Timothy Bly graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in December of 1983. He started his chiropractic practice as an associate at Buescher Chiropractic in Peoria, Illinois after graduating. In 1985, he opened Bly-Hillman Chiropractic in Bloomington, Illinois. He moved to China to study acupuncture, earning his certification in where he earned his certification in acupuncture in 1989.
Dr. Bly has a history of using new and innovative treatments for his Bloomington chiropractic patients. In 2001, he used such technology as the Pulstar Technique, which makes use of a computer to analyze spinal problems scientifically and correct them. He has integrated such techniques as spinal decompression and cold laser, which is used to treat spinal disc herniation, successfully correcting the problem.
With over 40+ years of experience as a leading chiropractor in the Bay Area of California, Dr. Mik Hamilton of Hamilton Chiropractic located in Berkley, CA offers an incredible reputation for successful patient outcomes. Before Dr. Hamilton grew to become a top Berkeley chiropractor, he had traveled abroad extensively. He noticed that he started experiencing numbness in his hands and Mik visited a chiropractor to find lasting relief from the numbness. At that point he was inspired to become a chiropractor and began his education at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa.
Dr. Hamilton began his practice in 1975, and he put to use everything he had learned in college and in his travels. So much so that he's deeply rooted to the advice he heard from a man in India during his travels. He told him that nothing could be accomplished by watching. He must be doing if he was to find happiness and bring happiness to others.
Dr. Hamilton uses advanced practices that many chiropractors do not use with their patients. One of these practices is the Class IV K-Laser, which uses high heat procedures to relieve pain and boosts tissue regeneration.
Spinal disc decompression is another of Dr. Hamilton’s procedures for giving his patients relief and healing. He uses the innovative Rehab Spinal System which is used to treat sciatica and several other back and neck problems. He makes use of Pettibon Rehabilitation products for spinal correction, such as the Wobbly Chair, and the rotating table, along with several other tools and exercises. With his comprehensive chiropractic spinal care, Dr. Hamilton can bring relief to many patients.
Dr. Smith graduated from Western States Chiropractic in Portland, Oregon, in 2006, earning her Doctorate in Chiropractic. She is more that your regular chiropractor, as she offers natural and holistic treatments to ease the pain her patients suffer with. In 2007, she worked as a chiropractor for the Spectrum Dance Theater. Her business, Flourish Chiropractic, is located at the Spectrum Dance Theater,
Dr. Smith offers her patients treatments, such as Hot Stone Therapeutic Heat Treatment, which improves the patient’s circulation and allows them to relax. If a patient suffers from mid – lower back pain and tight muscles in the back, this is the appropriate treatment for you.
The same holistic procedure is used for arm and upper back pain and muscle tightness. As the patient relaxes, Dr. Smith gently rubs coconut oil and smooth, small stones on the arms and shoulders. Those who suffer from wrist or elbow pain, muscle spasms and knots will find this treatment very beneficial. It is also a good treatment for those suffering from headaches.continue...
There is no doubt that lasers have been changed the history of medical treatment. Firstly found by Albert Einstein, they represented a completely new method of approach to patients. We can classify lasers by their strength and by the power of penetration through the skin. You can find different options here, starting from low level laser therapy to class IV laser therapy, which is the most powerful.
The innovative K-Laser is a relatively new solution that represents this form of class IV laser therapy and it is considered to be the most effective and the most penetrative of all. It is one of the first lasers of this level that has been used in countries around the world.
Doctors, chiropractors, and medical practitioners are still discovering all benefits of the K-Laser, but few things are certain. This treatment has powerful effects in laser therapy and medical results are astonishing. People experience fast recovery and reducing of pain in very short period of time, which proves the ability of laser therapy. The way that K-Laser works is simple, yet very helpful.
Class IV laser therapy produces over 500 milliwatts of power and these are infrared lasers. For comparison, weaker lasers have lower penetration of up to one or two millimeters into the skin and they have red laser light. Infrared lasers get into the skin much deeper and specifically the K-Laser can reach few centimeters, which makes this technology the most powerful in the world of laser therapy.
Especially interesting fact is the way that K-Laser therapy affects the human body. Changes are made on micro level inside the skin and natural processes are stimulated. This type of lasers affects three body functions like reducing pain, reducing inflammation and provoking healing of tissues. Pain relief can be reached fast by using this therapy.
It is especially effective in chronic pain and when all other methods have been used. The level of pain can be significantly reduced and this is why many patients go for this laser therapy. Other benefits like lowering inflammation and swelling are also positive effects that many specialists emphasize. The most important aspect of laser pain therapy is the tissue healing, which can be made by using K-Laser. It stimulates micro circulation of the blood cells in the affected area. This way, the natural healing process is accelerated and a recovery is much faster.
K-Laser has one more advantage when comparing to other, weaker lasers. It can stimulate oxygenation in tissues. All mitochondria need oxygen in some amount in order to function properly. That is where lasers get into action. Molecules provide more oxygen and the affected area gets more supplies in a moment.
All these functions of K-Laser set this method of curing to a high place in modern medicine. It helps people feel less pain and, most of all, it provides fast results. The K-laser is the most potent laser on the market today and its popularity is growing rapidly. You can heal wounds, reach muscles and bones with this laser and get faster regeneration of tissues. Benefits of laser therapy are numerous and people are lucky to experience them nowadays.continue...
