At Chiro-Integrative Health Center in Beverly Hills, you will find the wellness you seek.The chiropractic field is focused on wellness of the whole body, based on diagnosing and correcting imbalances in the nerves and musculoskeletal areas. Our approach is holistic, with every aspect of your lifestyle evaluated and used in conjunction with your physical examination, to ascertain your individual health care needs and create a customized plan of healing for you.
Chiropractic care is known for its use of spinal adjustments or spinal manipulations. Your spine protects your nervous system, and an adjustment which creates stimulation to the nervous system in the in the area that was adjusted can result in a profound systemic response. The Nervous System controls every cell and every bodily function, keeping us alive, fighting off infection and disease, and healing us after a traumatic experience.
The Spinal Cord runs down the Spinal Canal and coming off the cord are exiting spinal nerves. The Vertebral Column fits together like a jigsaw puzzle. Each vertebrae hooks to the one below it and in doing so creates an opening for the exiting spinal nerve to run through. This opening is called the Intervertebral Foramina. Because of it's location, subluxations (spinal misalignments), disc bulges (herniations), degenerative boney growths, and inflammatory chemicals from nearby injured tissues can impinge and irritate the exiting spinal nerves. If this nerve irritation is not alleviated it will lead to a systemic problem and disease.
This model of disease explains why so many chiropractic patients report an improvement in conditions other than spinal pain or spasms. Some symptom include headaches, dizziness, heartburn, clarity of vision, digestive problems, ear infections, tinnitus, menstrual cramping, sleep deprivation and decreased energy levels to name a few. As chiropractors, we cannot claim to treat or eliminate these conditions but in our office we have seen many patients who have experienced relief from these symptoms.
Chiropractors are the only trained medical professionals to diagnose and treat vertebral misalignment or subluxations. Adjustments are not painful, and are perfectly safe when done by a skilled practitioner like Dr. Beavers or Dr. Lopez. A precise amount of pressure is applied with the hands to the area of the spine that needs to be addressed. You may hear a “pop or cracking” type of noise with the adjustment. If you do, it’s not your bones “cracking or rubbing” against each other. There is gas that’s in the joint space. The exchange of this gassy material creates this noise.
If you are not a fan of the hands-on adjustment or cracking noise, we have several alternative methods to effectively correct your spinal misalignments. Spinal Blocking techniques, the Drop Table Mechanisms, De-rotation on a mechanical flexion distraction table and a small hand-held metal tool similar to the activator. Even newborns, children, the elderly can safely use these methods of spinal correction
We can also easily adjust any joint of the body as well. Some frequently adjusted areas are:
Chiropractic treatment is even safe for pregnant women. We frequently work with pregnant mothers whose baby is breech. Chiropractic adjustments may allow the baby to turn into the proper birthing position. If you are planning a pregnancy our office recommends you have a good spinal alignment before you become pregnant. This will make the experience for you and your baby that much more enjoyable.
Our office specializes in pregnancy care and is equipped with a special table that allows a full-term pregnant mom to lie face down. They love it! We also offer pregnancy massage as well as yoga and Pilates for the pregnant mom or for post-delivery.
Just about any health condition is worth a consultation with our integrative health providers, to see if this wonderful natural healing method can help it. Some things chiropractic care can improve include:
Diet Related Illness
