At Preferred Chiropractic Center, 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 Clovis office.
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. Both doctors practice diversified technique, Activator technique, Thompson Drop Technique.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises 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. 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.
Movement represents the integrated functioning of many systems within the human body,primarily the muscular, skeletal, and nervous systems. These systems, when functioning properly, allows for optimum structural alignment, coordination, and movement. However, for many reasons such as repetitive stress, impact trauma, disease and, sedentary lifestyle, dysfunction can occur in one or more of these systems. When this happens, muscle balance, muscle recruitment, and joint motion are altered leading to changes in structural alignment, coordination, and movement patterns of the human body. The result is a human movement system impairment and, ultimately injury. When a human movement system impairment exists, there are muscles that are overactive and muscles that are underactive around a joint. These impairments can be assessed and corrected with specific exercises.
Dr. Vinson has completed additional training thru the National Association of Sports Medicine and has obtained certification as a Corrective Exercise Specialist (CES) and Performance Enhancement Specialist (PES).
DISC DECOMPRESSION THERAPY
Valley Spinal Institute at Preferred Chiropractic Center offers advanced treatment methods for many back, neck, and disc problems to the Fresno and Clovis area.
We utilize the most up to date and technologically advanced Triton® DTS™ traction system for our decompression therapy. This table allows us to gently create cervical, lumbar, and wrist traction on you effectively and comfortably. This alternative treatment is designed to help relieve your nagging back, neck or referral (arm/leg) pain such as sciatica. Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy has been shown to significantly reduce or eliminate pain in 70 percent of patients. This system is a safe and effective treatment for pain without the risks associated with surgery, anesthesia, infection, injections or prescription medications.
Simply described, this method of treatment uses a therapeutic table that is connected to a computer, to electronically distract and decompress your spinal structures. You relax on the table while a padded harness focuses the gentle, distractive force along your spinal column. This decompresses your spine - specifically the intervertebral discs and joints and stretches your spinal muscles-the three structures that produce most of your pain.
During each session, you experience multiple cycles of distraction/relaxation, which may take 15-20 minutes to complete. The equipment is designed to apply precisely-controlled tension along the long axis of your spinal column, creating decompression of the intervertebral discs. During the distraction cycle, you may feel some relief of pressure in the area where your pain exists. During this time, your body is responding by flooding the area with oxygen, blood and nutrients which help promote your body's natural healing process.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patients return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know what supplements help with arthritis, inflammation pain? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? The doctors at Preferred Chiropractic Center can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
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 our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
