We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr.Elia has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
To complement and enhance the healing effects of Dr. Elia's specific Chiropractic manipulative treatment, he also provides the following physiological therapeutic procedures:
- Interferential electrical muscle stimulation
- Microamperage neural stimulation (Tens Unit)
- Mechanical traction
Here at Advanced Healing Centers we want to help you on your journey towards health and wellness. Our goal is to help you achieve total health and balance with your body. In order to achieve that goal, we are here to offer specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to help you maintain a healthy weight.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each of our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
What Is T.B.M.?
T.B.M. (Total Body Modification) is a technique this is used to find the organ or area of the body that is stressed, determine why it is stressed and correct the problem by restoring balance to the nervous system. In other words, while basic Chiropractic is used to correct the Structure and influence the function, T.B.M. corrects the Functional Physiology
(how the body works) which may, in turn, influence structure. Both a re essential to optimum health.
In the early days of Chiropractic, the "old time Chiropractic, the "old time Chiropractor" was not restricted or confused by "scientific proof" of what they were able to do.& These old masters found a problem and corrected it, thereby, building the reputation of Chiropractic with their main philosophy being that the power that made the body, could correct the body.
How Does T.B.M. Work?
The nervous system is composed of the Central Nervous System, which runs the voluntary function or movements and the autonomic Nervous System which runs the involuntary functions of the body, such as heart beat, digestion, etc.& Each of these systems are further divided into Sensory and Motor Fibres.
The brain is the primary control for both branches of the nervous system.& Sensory Fibres carry messages to the brain where they are processed, like a computer, and the brain in turn, tells the body what to do. Research has proved that under sufficient stress, from any reason, the neurons in the brain centers which are controlling the stressed organ or body part essentially depolarize.& This is like blowing a fuse on an electric circuit. The message gets to the brain but fails to return.& The result is that the brain (computer) loses effective control over the afflicted organ or body part.& This
leaves the organ or body part running out of control.
Using tried and tested reflex points and muscle testing, the T.B.M. practitioner can find the problem.& The practitioner will then stimulate a specific area or areas of the spine in a specific manner in an attempt to stimulate the neurons in the brain to repolarize (fix the fuse) and allow the brain to regain control of the body and guide it back to health.& Since a correctly functioning nervous system is a major requirement for health, it follows that T.B.M. can have a path to play in almost any problem and uncover and correct the roadblocks to recovery.
At this point in time T.B.M. is able to test and correct most of the known body functions.& Through the efforts of and thinking of many innovators within the Chiropractic profession, a body of knowledge and repeatable technical procedures has emerged to crrect what is termed functional physiological malfunctions.
Over the years, scientific data has validated much of what began as a theory.& But the results that have been attained have given the impetus, the confidence and the desire to find out more about how the body really works.& Research is
an ongoing activity in T.B.M. and each year brings new discoveries.
