Pain can come in many shapes and forms. There is acute pain which is sudden and onset, perhaps the result of an accident or some type of injury. Sometimes even bending or twisting the wrong way can bring on sudden acute pain. There is also pain that may have been with you for a long period, perhaps increasing with intensity with time. It could have started out with a small achy feeling and then culminated into something which is now constantly nagging or even unbearable.
At CA Clinic, we believe there are many types of approaches that can help relieve pain naturally without medication or prescriptions. The first thing needed is an examination and evaluation in order to determine the proper course of action which will fit you best.
Some patients prefer only one type of therapy, usually chiropractic or acupuncture, but usually the best results come from a combination of both. Learn more about the types of therapies and evaluative tools that can be used to help you get back on the track to good health:
Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote its own natural healing ability. It is not a mystical theory of ancient Chinese, but a type of bioenergetics medicine which has been practiced and developed in Chinese medicine for more than 5000 years. Over this vast length of time, billions of people have been treated successfully. (Read more)
Chiropractic If you open the dictionary to find out the definition of Chiropractic, you may find something like this: “A system of therapy in which disease is considered the result of abnormal function of the nervous system. The method of treatment usually involves manipulation or adjustment of the spinal column and other body structures. (Read more)
Arthrostim Mechanized Adjustment
Some patients prefer to be adjusted mechanically, rather than manually. They are not comfortable with the “cracking” or “popping” sounds they may hear when receiving treatment. (learn more about what the “cracking” sounds really are, here) That is why the Arthrostim device is their preferred choice. The ArthroStim™ Instrument delivers up to 12-14 incremental thrusts per second. By dividing the energy of a single thrust into rapid successive inputs, it modulates the (peak) force and creates extensive neurological feedback to the brain, using greatly reduced force. By utilizing controlled, incremental thrusts, it is able to stimulate specific neural receptors (mechanoreceptors and proprioreceptors) without activating undesirable pain receptors. (Read more)
Electro Meridian Imaging (EMI or Acugraph)
Acupuncture is an oriental medical treatment which has been practiced for hundreds of years that is based upon the flow of energy through pathways in the body called Meridians. Acupuncture treatment was provided with the use of tiny needles to stimulate the nerve centers in the body. Today’s acupuncture needles are sterile, disposable and almost as thin as a human hair. Modern healthcare has also introduced needle-less acupuncture, acupuncture magnets, and electro stimulation which additionally has been proven to be extremely effective. One of the unique properties of acupuncture points discovered by scientists is that acupuncture points are more electrically conductive than the surrounding tissue. (Read more)
Kinesiology & Muscle Testing
Kinesiology is also associated with Muscle Testing. It represents a newer branch of science which was developed by doctors, chiropractors and acupuncturists in the U.S.A. They pooled their knowledge and added it to Chinese medicine to develop a totally new technology which is amazingly efficient at balancing the body so that it can return to excellent health, energy and emotional strength. It stands apart from any other type of health technology largely due to it’s use of revolutionary muscle testing. Kinesiology is a truly ‘Holistic’ system, because it looks at the whole person (not just at selected parts).
NAET & Allergy Treatment
NAET is an abbreviation for “Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Techniques”. It was discovered by Dr. Devi S. Nambudripad. NAET specializes exclusively in the diagnosis and treatment of various types of allergies and the additional problems that are caused by allergies. (Read more)
CNT – Cranial Nerve & Sacral Treatment
Cranial Nerve Technique improves the ability of cranial nerve function by using spine stimulation to affect the brain in order to help restore losses in the five senses. It applies hands-on, non-invasive techniques to the skull, neck, face, spine, sacrum, and hips to improve the central nervous system function. It is often used to relieve pain, especially in the head, sinuses, TMJ, teeth, ears, eyes, throat, neck, low back, sacroiliac joints, and hips. CNT also helps with systemic inflammation, lympho problems, and infection. It has been found to have the unique ability to upgrade the immune system while boosting overall health and a sense of well-being.
Magnetic Ear Point Stimulation
A method for effective weight loss without negative or harmful side effects as well as for the treatment of ailments in human patients. Treatment is achieved using a combination of acupuncture and micro-magnetic balls. The method includes the steps of placing several micro-magnetic balls onto specified locations on the ears.
Enzymes are energy-rich protein molecules that are essential for life. They catalyze and regulate chemical reactions and are an essential part of every activity in the body. Its process speeds up rates of reaction for a specific chemical reaction in a cell. With an enzyme, reactions work faster in the body than they would without. For example, a digestive enzyme helps break down the food we eat, releasing nutrients for energy production, cell growth and repair. They have been used with successful results for some patients in decreasing their lactose intolerance, reducing food allergies, as well as relieving gas & constipation. Due to existing factors such as genetics, stressful lifestyle, environment and diet, we are all at risk for compromised digestion. This is why many people may benefit from the support of a digestive supplement.
Enzymes are used for numerous therapies including promoting detoxification, impoving overall digestion, increasing immune system health, and helping repair tissues and ligaments. (Read more)
