- Chiropractic Biophysics Technique
Our Huntington Beach Chiropractic team, guided by Dr. Michael VanDerschelden has a true passion for helping people overcome pain and work toward complete health and wellness. While most first-time patients come into our office seeking help with neck, shoulder, leg or back pain relief, the goal of chiropractic care is much broader. Eliminating pain is the first goal of a chiropractor, but after that, we want to help our patients continue on the path to achieving their optimum level of health. Through continuing spinal adjustments, nutritional and lifestyle counseling and exercise programs, we want to help our patients prevent illness and injury in the future.
Huntington Beach Chiropractic Clinic Promotes Total Health
Our Huntington Beach chiropractic team asserts that the body is an amazing organism that nature built to last. Our brains send messages all throughout the body through the nervous system, which runs through the spine. These messages literally tell each part of the body how to function healthfully. When the spine is aligned in its proper position, messages travel through the nervous system correctly and everything works as it should.
Things happen, however, that can pull our spines out of proper alignment. From rough pregnancies to lifting heavy loads the wrong way, and from sports or auto accident injuries to just slouching in front of a computer all day, we all encounter situations that can, either suddenly or over years, cause what a chiropractor calls "subluxations." These are misalignments in the spine that can lead to pinched nerves, which interrupt the messages between the brain and other parts of the body. We may still feel fine for awhile, especially if the spine is being pulled out of shape gradually by poor posture or obesity, but, in reality, damage is being done whether we feel it or not. Pain is actually a late-stage sign of disease caused by these subluxations.
So, although back pain, neck pain, headaches and migraines are usually the things that bring people into our office, anyone can come in for an examination to find out how well their spines are aligned and if there might be problems brewing that are not yet manifesting themselves. Our Huntington Beach chiropractors can help people prevent problems or catch them before they become advanced. We are just as passionate about preventing illness and injury through preventative spinal adjustments, nutritional and lifestyle counseling, and exercise as we are about relieving pain.
Dr. VanDerschelden and their caring staff understand that the journey to full health and wellness is unique to each person, so we get to know each patient so we can understand the root cause of the back pain, headaches, migraines or whatever pain they are suffering. We are experienced in chiropractic care and treatments so that we can offer our patients exactly what they need to help them become healthy and stay healthy. Please call us today at (714) 794-2171 to find out more.
Corrective exercises are the use of bodily movements and/or postures to restore desirable changes in diseased or injured tissues. The corrective exercises are movement strategies that minimize or eliminate compensation. Corrective exercises should precede more integrated exercises, because they can cue the patient’s motor system to respond in a more desirable way and assist in removing or improving biomechanical constraints.
Here at Huntington Beach Chiropractic we want to help you on your journey towards health and wellness. Our goal is to help you achieve total health and balance with your body. In order to achieve that goal, we are here to offer specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to help you maintain a healthy weight.
At Huntington Beach Chiropractic, our care extends beyond pain management and injury recovery. Unlike traditional medical care, we focus on your entire body. We believe that health is more than just the absence of pain and injury. Our treatments, including wellness, chiropractic care help relieve your headaches, migraines, back pain and neck pain by addressing the underlying cause for these conditions. By treating the underlying cause, we can help restore alignment to your musculoskeletal system, reducing the risk for future health problems.
A properly aligned musculoskeletal system is essential to the overall health of your body. When our spine is out of alignment, the nerves in our body are unable to properly transmit messages. As a result, you may experience symptoms of pain, including back pain, headaches and migraines. However, a misaligned spine can lead to many other problems as our body systems begin to beak down. When our body systems are overwhelmed, we also struggle with exhaustion, constant allergies, fatigue and illness.
Wellness, hands-on adjustments can help our patients reach an optimal state of well being.
As a family chiropractor, we believe that wellness care is essential to raising healthy children. Many common childhood complaints, including acute ear infections and allergies, may be due to misalignment in the musculoskeletal system. Childhood is also a unique opportunity to teach our children that there are natural, safe and effective alternatives to medication and invasive surgery. Our family chiropractor is fully experienced providing gentle, hands-on adjustments for children that are completely safe.
Patients choose our Huntington Beach chiropractic practice because they want more than just a "quick fix" for headaches, migraines and chronic pain. This traditional approach to medical care, which uses prescription painkillers to "cover up" pain, is no longer working for patients. As individuals learn more about the importance of prevention and whole body treatments, our patients are demanding more - and we're excited to provide a higher level of proactive care. We are passionate about holistic treatments and committed to educating and empowering our patients to live full, active and healthy lives.
Studies routinely show that individuals who take an active approach to their health - including a balanced diet, regular exercise and alignment of the body - live longer than individuals who take a passive "wait and see" approach to health. That's why our commitment to helping you care for your body doesn't stop just because your pain is gone. Our mission is to help you achieve and maintain wellness in all aspects of your life, including physical, emotion and mental well being.
Whether you are recovering from an injury or just need a body "tune-up" to prevent future problems, our chiropractors are here to help.
