At Rosstown Chiropractic, we make every effort to educate our patients and our community about the benefits of chiropractic care for the restoration of health. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Nanaimo office.
Chiropractors are "primary contact" health care providers, which means you do not have to be referred to one by a physician or anyone else. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Miguel Arbez has over 15 years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
Techniques offered to clients include Activator, Torque Release Technique and Network Spinal Analysis.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These video exercises are emailed directly to our clients. They can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can 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.
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 our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
Workstation Assessments and Ergonomic Workshops
Dr. Arbez will teach your employees how to do their jobs in a safer way, in their work environment. All Workshops include stretches to relieve tension in the neck, shoulders and back.
Trigger Point Therapy
The use of massage for trigger point therapy on a regular basis can help naturally manage pain and stress from chronic injuries. Pressure is applied to a trigger point long enough to release and relax the muscle. This increases blood flow to the muscle to allow normalization and bring it back to a health state.
Therapeutic ultrasound uses sound waves above the range of human hearing to interact with tissues in the body that are either modified or destroyed. It creates a deep heat and increases the blood flow to the area being treated to help reduce local swelling and chronic inflammation.
