In the field of chiropractic medicine, we believe in preventive, holistic treatment and a drug-free approach to the improvement of existing conditions. By treating issues before they worsen, we're able to help our patients experience relief from musculoskeletal pain, digestive concerns, respiratory problems, and blood pressure without the need for surgery, pharmaceuticals, or other forms of intervention. As a complementary or alternative approach to traditional medicine, chiropractic care provides patients of all ages with the potential to heal and restore optimal body functions in a natural way.
We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing state-of-the-art chiropractic techniques. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a chiropractor with decades of training and experience, Dr. Meet Patel is skilled in using chiropractic techniques to help patients experience relief from back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to help prevent injuries and help patients achieve total health and wellness.
The Effect of Extremity Care
Award-winning chiropractor Dr. Patel has spent years extensively studying the biomechanics of the extremities and how joint dysfunction can cause pain in the foot, knee, hip, shoulder, elbow, wrist, and jaw (TMJ). Proper alignment of the extremity joints is a critical component of overall health; misalignment of one of the joints in the extremities can lead to various health problems, pain, and discomfort.
The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve complete health and balance with their bodies. Our experienced chiropractic health professionals can provide nutritional counseling to guide patients in making dietary and lifestyle choices for optimal overall health. Patients might not know which supplements and vitamins are good for them, or how those supplements and vitamins interact with one another. At our St. Augustine, Palm Coast, and Palatka chiropractic clinics, we can answer those questions and provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on individual needs.
Massage therapy is a natural treatment approach that helps many patients experience relief from musculoskeletal pain. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complementary to our chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increased blood circulation, localized reduction in swelling, relaxation of muscles, relief of muscle pain and spasms, increased range of motion, and accelerated injury recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost the immune system and protect against illness.
Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine used to treat a wide range of health problems. The majority of people seeking acupuncture do so for musculoskeletal problems, including low back pain, shoulder stiffness, and knee pain. Acupuncture is generally only used in combination with other forms of treatment, as the American Society of Anesthesiologists states it may be considered in the treatment for nonspecific, noninflammatory low back pain only in conjunction with conventional therapy. Acupuncture involves the insertion of five to 20 thin needles into the skin, usually left in place for 10 to 20 minutes, to stimulate areas of trouble and improve healing.
Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain, or headaches. While our chiropractors will emphasize the treatment of each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to guide our patients toward achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that should be avoided or modified to prevent the unintentional aggravation of particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient live a fulfilling, pain-free life through whole-body wellness.
Chronic pain and illness can be debilitating, and conventional medicine doesn't always have the answers. At Monahan Chiropractic Medical Clinics, we get to know our patients and their medical histories so that we can go beyond treating the symptoms, find the root of the problem, and help restore health through non-invasive, drug-free treatment options.
