Whether you are relaxing at home or going through the daily grind at work, your spine is always on the job, fulfilling its critical function of supporting your entire body and helping you move and function. When your spine is out of alignment, pain and other problems are sure to follow. If you are concerned about back pain or want to get a jump on preventative measures, the experts at Huntington Medical and Rehabilitation are happy to help! Our professional chiropractors have designed a variety of thorough spinal and postural screenings to address your pain, numbness, or other spinal care needs. Utilizing the latest equipment and technology, we will analyze your spine and pinpoint any major problems or risk factors. With a keen attention to detail and a true dedication for improving your mobility and quality of life, you can count on our effective team for optimal spine health.
Posture refers to the way you hold your body when you stand, sit, or move. Poor posture can cause excessive stress to the spine and chronic muscle tension because you are forcing your back muscles to support your upper body instead of your spinal bones. This can inadvertently pull spinal bones out of alignment.
At Huntington Medical and Rehabilitation, spinal and postural screenings are instrumental in determining whether your posture is contributing to your health concerns or if there is an underlying issue, like scoliosis, that needs addressing. During your initial consultation, our professional team will evaluate your spinal joints and the muscles that surround them. This evaluation will help us assess your range of motion, identify any tender areas or stress points, and search for signs of poor spinal alignment or other problems that can impact your spine health. We will also evaluate your neck, shoulders, and your overall posture. Once the assessment is complete, we will sit down with you to discuss our findings and develop a plan of action for corrective care and/or pain management.
Since the spine is so intricately tied to the proper function of the entire body, Huntington Medical and Rehabilitation uses only the latest advances in tools and techniques to diagnose and treat spinal issues. Our highly skilled specialists combine this technology with their extensive knowledge to ensure that all vertebrae, discs, nerves, muscles, ligaments, and tendons are properly aligned. We can also provide effective pain prevention or pain management and suggest a variety of corrective measures, nutrition and exercise tips, and lifestyle adjustments.
