At Premier Chiropractic & Pilates, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Woodland office.
We provide spinal correction utilizing gentle 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. Dr. Sherrill practices a variety of techniques so he can treat patients with varying conditions and preferences more effectively including Palmer, Diversified, Activator, Impulse, Flexion/Distraction, Spinal Decompression and Drop Table. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Christian Sherrill D.C. has years of training and experience in spinal adjustments.
We teach our patients specific exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. We have found the biggest challenge with most rehab programs is that patients were either never fully taught the exercises or they did not understand how to do them correctly. We work with you individually to ensure your success allowing you to continue these exercises in the comfort of your own home which will improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. 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.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
Posture and spinal assessments can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. Many health conditions are directly related to poor posture including neck pain, headaches, numbness and tingling in the arms or legs, and lower back pain. We utilize PostureScreen, Accurate Posture Assessment, which allows us to determine your exact posture and deviations from neutral which enables us to tailor treatment to enhance your long term outcome and reduce progression and recurrence of postural strains and related syndromes. We perform follow up PostureScreen assessments through your care to track the progress you have made. We are happy to provide screenings at community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
Range of Motion and Muscle Testing
Your range of motion and muscle balance is a vital predictor of current and future musculoskeletal health. We utilize JTECH range of motion and muscle testing in our clinic that assesses both of these factors. JTECH helps us assess critical parts of health and function which enhance our ability to tailor treatment for you. These assessment tools will allow you to see what we see, better understand your condition and track your progress over time.
Graston Therapy and Kinesio Taping
An important aspect of healing and recovery is muscle and soft tissue function. Dr. Sherrill utilizes Kinesio Taping and Graston Therapy as part of treatment in the office to help restore normal function to muscles and joints. Soft tissue injuries (and/or adhesions) prevent fluid movement of muscles, tendons, ligaments and surrounding soft tissue. Thus, when someone says they feel tight, or have pain with movement, they are experiencing the binding effect of scar tissue. Graston Technique® and Kinesio Taping are effective in the treatment of acute and chronic conditions, and return the soft tissue to its normal, healthy state.
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 patient is a whole person, and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Dr. Sherrill can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
