WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC CARE?
Chiropractic is a branch of natural health care that centers around how the spine, joints, and soft tissues effect the human body. Some people seek out chiropractic care for relief of their aches and pains, while others work to correct posture and balance within their bodies- and so much more! Chiropractors safely and effectively adjust the way the joints of the body move and restore normal motion. They then work to balance the musculature to maintain that adjustment. When the body is out of balance, we see pain and dysfunction, just as we see problems in our vehicles after hitting a pot hole.
Dr. Samelak combines her chiropractic skills with the knowledge gained in her Masters in Sport Science and Rehabilitation to optimize your wellness. When the nervous system is free of the interference caused by vertebral subluxation complexes, it functions seamlessly and promotes healing throughout the body.
At Seed of Life Chiropractic and Wellness, LLC, you can expect to be treated as a whole person- not a chief complaint. Dr. Samelak assesses the entire spine and the muscles that effect it, providing you with a treatment plan that is geared to help you improve your overall health and help prevent future issues.
WHO NEEDS CHIROPRACTIC CARE?
People of all ages benefit from chiropractic care. From birth throughout life, our bodies come up against challenges and must adapt. In fact, a large percentage of infants are born with subluxations of the upper neck and tailbone which can directly effect breast feeding/latch as well as bowel habits. By gently removing this interference in the nervous system, the body corrects itself. The majority of people see improvement in their overall health with chiropractic care. Chiropractors are specially trained to evaluate their patients and make sure that they are good candidates for the chiropractic adjustment.
Families often benefit from chiropractic care and Seed of Life has special packages reserved for family care to help make it more affordable.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT ON MY FIRST VISIT AT SEED OF LIFE CHIROPRACTIC AND WELLNESS, LLC?
Prior to your first visit, new patient paperwork will be emailed for your completion. At your first appointment, Dr. Samelak will perform a thorough history and consultation followed by physical, orthopedic, and neurological evaluation. Sometimes, x-ray evaluation will be recommended. Dr. Samelak will build a customized care plan for you based upon her findings which may include: chiropractic adjustments, at home exercises, and/or nutritional recommendations. Gentle stretches or other recommendations will be made for you and a report of findings scheduled.
When you return for your second visit, Dr. Samelak will explain your care plan to you and ensure that you are comfortable with your home care recommendations. At this time, most patients will receive their first adjustment in the office. Dr. Samelak utilizes several chiropractic techniques to adjust her patients. These range from instrument adjusting and low force adjusting (Sacro Occipital Technique and Logan Basic Technique) to Reinert Specific Diversified. Patient comfort is Dr. Samelak’s number one priority and the techniques she uses on her patients are carefully chosen to optimize their care.
