Chiropractic Care

We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" 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. Paul Bruce has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.

We also have a respected history of working with patients' medical doctors as part of their complete care and will be happy to establish a relationship with your attending physician, specialist, therapist, dentist or other professional involved in your treatment.


Rehabilitation & Therapies 

Most injuries and conditions are greatly benefited by in-office and at-home care that works in tandem with proper Chiropractic treatment. Your doctor may suggest stretches for you to perform as needed to relieve pressure on your spine or limbs, along with common-sense strengthening exercises to promote stability and support and help prevent further problems.

Physical therapy refers to the mechanical treatment of injury and disease through exercise, stretching, massage, heat, passive movement and other methodologies designated to help improve the function of bones, muscles, joints, and nerves and is prescribed depending upon the injury or disorder being addressed. At Bruce Chiropractic & Comprehensive Care, we offer full-service, in-house physical therapy as an integral part of many patient treatment programs promoting recovery and pain management. Our physical therapy options include:

Ultrasound - This relaxing and warming therapy uses high frequency sound waves to relieve muscular tension, spasm and inflammation.   Its effective and soothing qualities make it one of our most popular healing therapies.

Electrical Muscle Stimulation - EMS therapy introduces gentle electrical impulses to tense, constricted or inflamed soft tissues to promote circulation, release spasm and encourage healing.

 


Corrective Exercises

We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. 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.  Appropriate aerobic exercise designed to suit your age and fitness level will also be recommended, to help heal, arrest and prevent disease and injury.  Your doctor may incorporate passive stretching to help relieve muscle tension and spasm and to carefully introduce greater range of motion to constrained muscles and tendons. He may also prescribe at at-home series of stretching and strengthening exercises to improve your flexibility and help prevent further or recurrent injury.


 Massage Therapy

Our highly trained massage therapists work to help relax tight muscles, improve circulation to injured areas, and restore nerve function to inflamed or constricted tissues. Massage also helps prepare tense areas for healing spinal manipulation and adjustment.


What is PEMF Cellular Exercise?

Pulse Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Cellular Exercise is a therapy in which electromagnetic fields reach deep inside your body to exercise your cells. It causes your cells to expand and contract, similarly to when you work out at the gym. Just like your muscles, your cells need to be strong.

Weak cells are characterized by low voltage. PEMF Cellular Exercise replenishes energy in low voltage cells. As your cells expand and contract, they are able to expel toxins and absorb nutrients. Your cells’ voltage increases, and they grow stronger. High voltage cells are able to grow, heal, and reproduce successfully. Strong cells will create more strong cells!

What are some benefits of PEMF Cellular Exercise?

PEMF Cellular Exercise has also been found to support the body’s own healing ability by replenishing the natural charge that exists in healthy cells. When your body is healthy you sleep better, experience more energy, and are less likely to experience pain and inflammation.

What is the history of PEMF Cellular Exercise?

The basic technology has existed in various forms for decades, starting with Nikola Tesla’s alternating current in the 1800’s.  About seventy years ago, Dr. Harold Saxton Burr, PhD proved that disease was preceded by a quantifiable imbalance in our electrical charge. Shortly after, PEMF Cellular Exercise began being used to aid in bone growth. It currently is used to support whole body wellness. 


 Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy

This exciting and effective treatment is a non-surgical and painless option for many people dealing with degenerative arthritis, spinal stenosis, degenerated or herniated discs, facet syndrome, pinched nerves and other disorders producing neck and low back pain, as well as the pain from sciatica.   Spinal Decompression Therapy has a proven success rate treating specific chronic pain conditions by gently stretching the spine and reducing pressure on spinal discs while increasing healing circulation to affected areas. A recent study demonstrated a significant pain reduction in 70% of patients who engaged in a complete series of treatments. This effort- and pain-free treatment is a viable and succesful option to many sufferers of debilitating neck, low-back or sciatica pain.


 

Kinesiotaping

What is Kinesiotape? Kinesiotape is elastic and latex free and usually takes little time to apply.  It is applied directly on the body part that needs protection or on the injured tissue.  Who is it for? 

 

 

The tape is suitable for all ages and a wide variety of conditions.  It is prescribed as a part of care by the Doctor.  Taping benefits: ·       Re-educate the neuromuscular system ·       Reduce pain ·       Reduce swelling ·       Enhance performance ·       Prevent injury Before Taping: You can follow your normal routine.  You may be asked to freshly shave or trim the area to be taped.  Please do not use any lotions or oils on the area the day of your taping appointment. Your Appointment: Your appointment will consist of an assessment of the affected area.  Based on these findings, you will be taped over and around the muscles and tissues of the area in order to assist and give support or prevent over-contraction.  Please note that your tape patterns and placement may vary depending on your condition and healing process. After Taping: You can follow your normal routine and use precaution when washing or wiping around the area.  The tape should last for 3 - 5 days.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
