Services We Provide at Our Columbus OH Chiropractor
High-quality services centered around the patient is the only goal we have at the Midwest Chiropractic Center, LLC. We believe if we're not providing the optimal level of care with compassion, we're not living up the expectations of ourselves or our clients. That's why we offer a wide array of services to our patients that meet their needs and wants.
The driving force behind chiropractic care is the science of helping the body use its own innate healing mechanisms. Each of our services is centered on removing obstacles that prevent your body from reaching its full healing and wellness potential while encouraging those natural healing mechanisms to work at their optimum capacity.
Dr. Peter Manz and our entire team strive to provide state-of-the-art care to each patient, giving them the treatment, tools and knowledge they need to take their health to higher levels. From low back pain relief and sports injury treatment, to massage therapy to weight loss, we can help you feel truly well from the inside out.
Chiropractic for Natural Healing and Optimal Wellness
Chiropractic care is usually thought of as a way of relieving back pain. While this is certainly one of its many benefits, our skillful, gentle spinal adjustments do so much more for the body. By correcting spinal misalignments called subluxations, we can release pinched nerves that may be causing problems throughout the body. Helping our patients maintain correct spinal alignment and posture helps them overcome various conditions/injuries, including:
- Low back pain
- Neck pain
- Car accident injuries
- Pregnancy aches and pains
- and much more
By helping you maintain your spine in its proper alignment, we can even prevent health problems from developing in the first place!
One of the most common chiropractic treatments we provide is a chiropractic adjustment. This treatment consists of our chiropractic specialist realigning the vertebrae and discs in the back through manual manipulation. This allows blood to circulate better throughout the area, which increases a number of nutrients this part of the body receives. Ultimately, the increase in blood flow enhances healing because of the additional nutrients. When the spine is lined up, it relieves pressure on the discs located in between the vertebrae. This reduces pressure on the muscles and other soft tissue around the area. A chiropractor utilizes spinal adjustments to relieve both neck and back pain. An adjustment assists in relieving pain and promoting healing. It helps treat conditions like sciatica, degenerative disc disease, arthritis, herniated discs and damaged nerves.
Our sports medicine experience is particularly helpful for our athletic patients, but also those who just want to be more athletic than they already are. In addition to treating sports injuries like sprains, strains and musculoskeletal misalignments resulting from trauma, we can also teach our patients how to improve their sports form to avoid future injuries. Our sports medicine experience includes helping athletes improve their performance naturally through nutritional counseling and massage therapy.
At our office, we also supply our patients with the option of massage therapy. Unlike a traditional massage, massage therapy targets the tissue deep within the body. The chiropractor will conduct the treatment on the injured area in order to reduce pain and swelling. A therapeutic massage has the potential to reduce the presence of spasms in the muscles. Usually, we utilize massage therapy in addition to other forms of chiropractic care.
Massage therapy, this is one of our most important healing techniques. Not only does it feel good and relieve stress (which causes so many of our modern health conditions), it has very powerful benefits when recovering from injuries of all kinds. We can apply different massage techniques to relieve musculoskeletal tensions, break down painful adhesions, increase circulation and reduce inflammation at the cellular level. Massage also releases endorphins into the system, which contribute powerfully to natural pain relief.
For those struggling with weight loss, we have a wide range of services to help. We provide nutrition, exercise and lifestyle counseling that can help you shed pounds in a healthy, natural way. Studies show that weight loss efforts are more successful when guided by a doctor, and that has certainly been the case with our patients. We develop individualized diet plans that our patients can both stick with and enjoy.
Weight Loss & Nutritional Counseling in Columbus
Our chiropractic clinic provides nutrition counseling as part of a comprehensive chiropractic and wellness treatment plan to help patients adopt new, healthy eating habits and achieve optimal health.
Dietary changes can also aid injury rehabilitation and support whole body health. For patients with unique nutrition needs, such as a nutrient deficient or an intolerance for certain ingredients, our nutrition counseling can help improve overall health, increase energy levels and promote a stronger immune system.
Your nutrition affects more than just how you feel about yourself. When you're overweight, it has an impact on your joints, which contributes to pain. Poor nutrition and a high body mass index cause poor health overall. Not to mention, if you sustain an injury, you might notice your healing time is decreased as a result of poor nutrition. Our Columbus OH chiropractor evaluates your nutritional habits and determines where the weaknesses are in your diet. We advise you on ways you can improve your health through nutritional adjustments.
Dietary Changes Help Patients with Healthy Weight Loss
Many people get stuck on a weight loss roller coaster, losing a few pounds one week and then gaining them back the next. Fad diets promise big results, but as soon as patients return to their regular eating habits, the weight piles back on. If this sounds like you, we can help. With nutritional counseling, we can pinpoint problems in our patients’ diets that are contributing to this weight gain. By gradually introducing dietary changes, we help patients see healthy living not as a ‘diet’ but as a ‘lifestyle.’ This is the best way to stop yo-yo dieting.
To help patients kick-start their weight loss plans, our Columbus chiropractor Dr. Manz offers dietary and nutritional counseling appointments. During your appointment, our chiropractor will evaluate your current lifestyle, diet and nutritional needs. You may be suffering from a food intolerance, such as a gluten intolerance, that is also contributing to your weight gain and making weight loss more difficult. We will recommend specific dietary changes to help you not only lose weight, but also improve overall health.
Our chiropractor frequently recommends a detox diet to reset the metabolism and cleanse the body of excess toxins. Toxins from preservatives, artificial ingredients, and the environment can slowly build up in the body over time. These toxins can overwhelm the body’s kidneys and other organs, leading to health problems and weight gain. A gentle detox diet is a safe and effective way to flush out excess toxins and reset the metabolism. Detoxing also helps patients make the shift to healthier eating habits, including a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and lean protein.
Dietary changes are important not only for weight loss, but also for overall health. For example, even patients who are at their ideal weight can benefit from a detox diet. Removing toxins from the body strengthens the immune system and reduces the risk for illness. By bringing nutritional balance back to the body, our patients enjoy more energy, suffer from fewer headaches, and experience less gastrointestinal upset.
Nutritional counseling can also help patients following an injury. For example, a diet rich in antioxidants helps to reduce internal inflammation. Our chiropractor frequently integrate nutritional counseling with chiropractic care services to help enhance a patient’s health following injury.
Whether you need to lose weight or simply wish to improve your overall health, nutritional counseling can make a big difference. Contact us today!
