Holistic therapy is the practice of treating the whole person. All the body parts are interconnected, and when one is not functioning well it affects all the others. Dr. Don Haygood of Essential Wellness of Burleson in Burleson, TX offers natural solutions to your health care needs. He believes in combining traditional chiropractic treatments with acupuncture and other holistic therapies.
Low force chiropractic adjustments
Low force chiropractic adjustments are a gentler form of chiropractic manipulation. They take into account what the body may have been through and how much pain was involved. “Less is more” works very well for many people and the older adult can benefit greatly from this type of adjustment.
The body has invisible meridians that carry the energy or chi throughout the body. When the flow of energy is disrupted, things start to go wrong. Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese therapy that helps to get energy back into balance. Tiny needs or magnets, lasers, or electric pulses are used at specific points to help with specific areas of disruption.
Dry needling looks like acupuncture but is a different procedure altogether. It is used to release trigger points that form in the muscles and cause pain. It is based on Eastern medicine but rooted in western medicine.
Dr. Haygood is a certified Reiki Master and offers this therapy at his practice. Reiki is a healing therapy that provides relaxation through the practitioners using their hands to improve the energy flow in your body. It is therapy that works very well with traditional chiropractic therapy.
Massage therapy is a complementary therapy that works well with other chiropractic treatments. Allowing the muscles and other soft tissue to relax makes the procedures more effective. It is holistic therapy that makes you feel good, and the other procedures work better. It is a win win.
Myofascial release technique
Within your myofascial tissue are trigger points that can become very sore and cause a lot of pain. The myofascial tissue surrounds the muscles. It is not easy to identify which trigger point is responsible. Releasing the correct trigger point means that the technique needs to be done over a larger area.
Ultrasound therapy uses sound waves to heal soft tissue injuries and pain. It produces heat that repairs the tissues at the cellular level. It reduces inflammation and pain levels. It is used in combination with other chiropractic treatments to treat the whole person.
