At Higgins Physical Medicine, our doctor uses specific scientific chiropractic adjustments that are determined from precise X-ray analysis. The purpose of the adjustment is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile, or restricted in their movement, as a result of a tissue injury. Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, motor vehicle accidents, or through repetitive stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal posture for an extended period of time. In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function in the patient. The specific adjustment of the affected joint and tissue, restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal.
Our care program goes beyond chiropractic adjustments and into total body care. Through our Four Pillars of Health system, we address physical problems from four different angles to give you total wellness. Our chiropractic care will treat the root cause of your pain and discomfort to get you back to feeling 100%. We also help you remove irritation and teach you ways to correct muscle imbalance. Diet is addressed to help reduce outside interference that can either react negatively with your body to increase inflammation and add in nutrition to help the body reach an ideal weight. We also help you find ways to reduce stress to reduce the turmoil that happens in the body, causing other health issues.
