We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing a wide variety of chiropractic techniques, including traditional hands-on spinal adjustments and a variety of low-force table or instrument-assisted techniques. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. We evaluate each patient and offer the technique most appropriate based on your unique needs. As chiropractors who care about utilizing the safest, most advanced chiropractic techniques, Drs. Justin and Anna Johnson , strive to stay up-to-date on the latest chiropractic research, to provide their patients with the expertise and experience in providing relief from back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine.
At Ionia Family Chiropractic, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Most of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care. In addition to spinal joint dysfunction, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are weak, spasmed, and/or inflamed. Postural abnormalities, caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, cause repetitive injuries over time and can lead to headaches, neck pain, and back pain. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
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 chiropractor will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our Ionia chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary 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 the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!
