Dr. Sarah Tregaskiss has trained for over 12 years in the disciplines of chiropractic, acupuncture, yoga, Active Release Technique (ART), and the Graston technique for treating soft-tissue injuries. Each of these treatment methods provides holistic relief without the need for pain medication.
A typical treatment takes 10-30 minutes, depending on the patient’s complaint and phase of therapy. During the visit you could expect any one of the following interventions: Spinal Manipulation, Acupuncture, Active Release, Graston Techniques, Rehabilitation Exercises, Taping, Ultrasound, and/or Interferential Current.
At the heart of the chiropractic philosophy is this simple wisdom: treat the problem itself, not just the symptoms. If you only look at the symptoms, the underlying problem is still there and will keep coming back until it's treated.
Chiropractic care is an effective method of treatment for many people who suffer from back pain, neck pain, headaches and other neuromusculoskeletal disorders.
The science of chiropractic centers around the body's spine. The spine houses and protects the spinal cord, which is the "switchboard" through which nerve impulses are transmitted from the brain to all parts of the body. In the event of an injury, misaligned vertebrae can interfere with nerve transmissions, inhibit mobility and cause pain or discomfort. Chiropractic treatment realigns the vertebrae so the nerve impulses are not restricted. When the spine is properly aligned, the cause of pain and malfunction is removed, and the body will return to normal.
Our Doctors have been trained to evaluate your total health picture and will ask questions about your lifestyle and work habits during consultation. This allows him to focus on the core problem and causes. While the first goal is to relieve pain, the larger goal is to restore good health. Good health cannot be attributed solely to medication, surgery, or chiropractic adjustments. Good health comes from a healthy lifestyle and proper spinal function.
Dr. Tregaskiss carefully assess each patient by using proven, well researched techniques. Treatment generally focuses on manual spinal manipulation, also called chiropractic adjustment. In some cases, therapy is also used to provide relief and speed healing.
