Chiropractic Services & Care Experts
Our chiropractic services are a natural method of healthcare that involves the evaluation of the spine and nervous system. During his spine examination, Dr. Thoma searches for evidence of vertebral subluxation. Misalignment, restricted movement, tenderness, and swelling are part of the vertebral subluxation complex. Considered to be a stress reaction of the spine vertebral subluxation can have a profound effect on your nervous system’s ability to communicate with every other part of the body.
Once your spine has been evaluated for areas of subluxation, we can correlate it with the condition of concerns you have. The benefits from a chiropractic adjustment that you may experience include the following:
• Better movement
• Easing of tension
• Breathe better
• Less pain
• Walk Better
• Improved strength
• Sleep better
• Better Balance and more!
Time Is the Ultimate Healer
Your body will regain its ability to heal well. It may, however, take time for this process to get started. At the same time, we will recommend more frequent visits at the beginning of care to start changing your “pattern” of subluxations. Feeling better comes quickly, and getting healthy takes time.
At Cape Henry Chiropractic Wellness we also use posture as a marker for your treatment success. As a matter of fact, posture is a window to your spine and the health of your nervous system. Specialized spinal adjustments and strong posture exercises make postural correction possible. Stand tall and look younger, feel better, and move better. Research shows stand tall and live longer.
Regular progress examinations will measure your improvement. Moreover, the frequency of your visits will decrease as your re-evaluations show the results you have gotten.
Are Chiropractic Adjustments Dangerous?
The risk associated with a chiropractic adjustment is having it done by an untrained provider and the health status of the individual receiving the treatment. Dr. Thoma primarily utilizes instrument adjusting techniques for their gentle, precise, and measured delivery following a thorough spinal examination. Dr. Thoma not only is dedicated to providing comfortable, safe, and effective care. But also, quality care.
Conditions Commonly Helped by our Chiropractic Services
Chiropractor care is perceived to be associated with certain pain-related conditions, but incorporating chiropractic care while making lifestyle changes can be remarkably effective in addressing a broad array of conditions that include:
- Autoimmune problems
- Sleep issues
- Degenerative disc
- Hip/Knee/Ankle/Foot Pain
- Bladder weakness
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
At Cape Henry Chiropractic Wellness we look at the whole person. While all of the above conditions have benefited from care in our office Dr. Thoma does not treat the condition, rather he treats the person with the condition. Wellness strategies focus on removing the interference to your nervous system so that your health can improve.
Dr. Thoma has learned many techniques over his years in practice. In fact, some would say that his practice is cutting edge as he gravitates toward the latest that science has to offer in proven effective modalities. Read more about his methods below:
Spinal Reflex Analysis
Highly beneficial to identifying the root of almost all chronic spinal pain syndromes. As a matter of fact, Spinal Reflex Analysis identifies an Axial Spinal Reflex associated with an unstable subluxation. Referred to as the area of greatest spinal cord stress this reflex initiates a pattern of muscle activation in the spine causing symptoms far removed from the source. Above all, at Cape Henry Chiropractic Wellness we look at the health of the entire spine.
Our care is a ground-up approach. We not only look to the structure and function of the feet as they relate to your ankles, knees, and pelvis. But also, remember Chiropractic care is a nervous system-based healthcare that relates problems of the extremities back to their potential source. For the extremities, the spine is like the fuse box in your home. When all else fails always check the circuit breaker!
The longer you have a condition the more likely that the fascial tissues will be involved. Fascia is the connective tissue covering all of our muscles, organs, vessels, nerves, and especially the brain and spinal cord. Moreover, the fascia can become restricted in movement, develop adhesions or act like shrink wrap when dehydrated. It is wholly integrated and energy dependent on the highly electrical nervous system. Utilizing a pleasant-feeling percussive tool helps to release the fascia which can then have a profound impact on pain and overall health.
Lumix Laser 3-250
This super pulsed laser with nanotechnology is the most powerful soft tissue laser available. Laser therapy provides light energy that speeds up healing and reduces pain and inflammation. The warmth, relaxation, and healing energy provided to the nervous system has a powerful calming effect. It is exactly what is needed to reverse the stress associated with chronic pain. This modality used in conjunction with the spinal reflex analysis and IQ IMPULSE adjusting instrument gives us breakthrough results in chronic pain.
Impulse IQ Adjusting Instrument
The latest in chiropractic technology provides gentle and precise computer-aided chiropractic adjustments to relieve pain and restore function. A high-tech sensor provides information about your body’s response to the adjustment. A micro-computer inside the instrument gives the doctor feedback about your results.
Dr. Thoma embraces a wellness and prevention paradigm shift away from the sickness and disease paradigm that has our culture experiencing exponential growth in preventable chronic diseases. Change must come from education on the three main ingredients of wellness: dietary, movement, and mental hygiene. The key is to follow a path that’s consistent with the way we were genetically designed to live. That’s our goal with our chiropractic services.
For some a jump start to spark balance back into our systems is required. The following are the modalities we use:
Strong Posture Exercise Program
How old we look, feel and move has everything to do with our posture. Above all, the quality of our balance, alignment, and movement will determine the strength of our posture. This program teaches a 10-minute daily exercise routine to achieve and maintain a strong posture. Research has revealed STAND TALL, LIVE LONGER.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Frequency Therapy
Referred to as “cellular exercise”, PEMF therapy has many documented benefits. Most significant to our practice is the charging of cell membranes and internal organelles much like a capacitor. Unhealthy cells have a lower membrane potential than healthy ones. This modality is a spark to the renewal process.
Dr. Thoma is a proponent of incorporating those vitamins and essential nutrients considered to be required for your genetic needs. He performs a Wellness Questionnaire, Total Health Scan, and Wholistic Methylation testing and will recommend a customized supplement plan.
Energy Balance Ionic Therapy
This modality provides a cellular cleanse. A pool of warm water that is ionized into a charged ion field stimulates simultaneously all the acupuncture points that begin or end in the feet. The result is a subtle flow of energy throughout all of the meridians creating balance and a feeling of well-being. Byproducts are thought to be body alkalization and system detoxification.
