SERVICES

          Massage Therapy

 

Our massage therapists (fritz & Jill)  offer a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.

 

Pregnancy

 

Chiropractic care prior to conception can help promote a healthy menstrual cycle and optimal uterine function. It also prepares the body to be structurally strong, to be more flexible and to have the ability to maintain good balance.

Chiropractic care during pregnancy can help maintain proper alignment, promote flexibility, and maintain homeostasis. When a mother's body and nervous system are functioning at an optimal level, the baby can grow comfortably and obtain the ideal birthing position.

With chiropractic care, the labor and delivery will most often flow easily and smoothly and will be likely to require less medical intervention. In addition, a proper working nervous system allows for well timed contractions that seem to help move the baby along the birthing canal. Many of Dr. Sprague's patients often report shorter, more pleasant deliveries when they receive chiropractic care.

Motor Vehicle Injury

 

Whiplash injuries are complex and serious health concerns for anyone involved in an automobile accident. It is also one of the most neglected, misunderstood and mistreated conditions you can have. As anyone who has had the misfortune of being taken to a local emergency room following a car accident knows, unless you have a broken bone or are bleeding, you were likely told that you would be fine in a few weeks. "If your pain persists, apply heat". Drugs for pain to relax damage muscles are commonly prescribed.This advice is extremely poor based on research comparing chiropractic treatment with medical treatment. If you have suffered a whiplash type injury, you should know that without proper treatment, your injury may be with you the rest of your life. Chiropractic care focuses on the cause of the problem and not just the symptoms. The spine is like a machine with moving parts. If the parts don't fit together right, they will wear out very quickly. Spinal degeneration, osteoarthritis and other problems can then develop over time. If we can get to the spine right after the injury, then there will not be long term degeneration and other lingering effects. Dr. Sprague Will discuss a plan to realign and strengthen your spine

Sports Injury

 

The desire to get back into sports is the reason why many athletes seek chiropractic care. Your body is like a machine, if you are misaligned your muscles will have to work harder and there will be more wear and wear on your joints. This translates to increased repetitive injuries and slower recovery time. Chiropractic care can incease your recovery rate and enhance biomechanical efficiency
