Upper Cervical Chiropractic
Upper Cervical Chiropractic is a unique and powerful healing technique designed to restore your health, balance, and well-being with the least amount of adjusting. The idea is that you get better and stay better, and don’t feel the need to keep running to the chiropractor. Our doctors perform precise analysis/diagnosis of upper neck misalignment, and then apply a very precise, gentle, custom-designed correction in that area using the palm of their hands.
Cranial Sacral Therapy
Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST) is both subtle and potent. This set of procedures is designed to restore balance to the nervous system, improve brain and spinal cord function, and improve the flow of cerebral spinal fluid, while also releasing the body’s healing energy wherever it may be “stuck.” Originally founded as an osteopathic technique, it is now practiced by many types of doctors and bodyworkers.
The CST practitioner uses gentle “holds” and applies light pressure primarily to the skull and the sacrum (tailbone area) to support the natural movement of bones in these areas, and they may also place gentle pressure or “holds” to other parts of the body that call for attention. While the technique is gentle and non-invasive, it’s results can be profound. It works to support and energize the body’s own healing potential.
Manual Ligament Therapy / Integrative Rehabilitation
Manual Ligament Therapy (MLT) is one of the key components to the practice of Integrative Rehabilitation. This is a new and cutting edge set of techniques, which strives to restore structural health by retraining the brain and nervous system. This is done by working with ligaments, specific directed exercise, and postural balancing, all of which affect muscle and joint function.
Like the other techniques used by practitioners at Health First, the idea is to foster long-term improvement, primarily by affecting brain-body communication.
