Chiropractic is a healthcare profession that focuses on disorders involving the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. A chiropractic treatment involves gentle adjustments of the spine and extremities to achieve optimal function and mobility of your body. This treatment is a comfortable, medication and surgery-free way to relieve your body's aches, pains, and injuries. It is supported in the scientific and clinical research literature as an ideal and effective treatment for low back pain, neck pain, headaches, sports injuries, car accidents, and work injuries.
Oxboro Family Chiropractic has two doctors of chiropractic on staff. They use scientific and clinical research to guide their treatment of a variety of conditions. Their experience includes treating patients with injuries from car accidents and work injuries, professional athletes, the elderly, infants and children, and everyone in between. They have a thorough knowledge of acute injuries of all types and severity, and the best possible treatment methods to get you back to health as quickly as possible.
Massage is considered to be among the oldest of all healthcare treatments used by people. Chinese records dating back three thousand years have documented its use. It was recommended by all major ancient cultures including Egyptian, Persian, Hindus, and Greco-Roman empires. Even Hippocrates supported its use, writing that massage improves joint and circulatory problems.
Today, massage is an accepted part of many physical rehabilitation and medicine programs. It is beneficial in many chronic conditions, such as low back pain, arthritis, and bursitis, along with relieving the stress and tension from everyday living. Our licensed massage therapist will individually customize each session to complement your treatment with other healthcare modalities or for general self-care.
If you have ever attended a professional sporting event, you may have noticed athletes are provided passive stretching by the team's training staff. Passive stretching allows the individual to remain relaxed while a provider applies stretches to the target muscles. This allows for a much more effective stretch.
As a multidisciplinary clinic, we incorporate a passive stretch plan that is performed in office on each visit by one of our providers. Passive stretching is essential in any stretching program to achieve maximum flexibility and range of motion. We also give an active stretching plan to be done at home in between visits to help maintain this newly gained mobility.
Therapy using light is not a new idea. From the times of ancient Greece, light has been thought to have healing properties. Recently, modern science has documented that at certain wavelengths, light therapy can actually help stimulate the body on a cellular level to promote tissue growth and healing, stimulate the production of natural biological compounds, and even increase natural biochemical reactions.
Recently, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the use of Low-Level Laser Therapy for the treatment of pain, inflammation, and soft-tissue injuries, such as sprains, strains, and muscle spasm. This treatment involves the use of red and near-infrared light to stimulate the cells and improve both nerve and muscular healing. Oxboro Family Chiropractic offers cold laser therapy for a variety of conditions as a stand-alone treatment, or in conjunction with your chiropractic, massage treatment plans.
