Lately we've been seeing a lot of people coming into the Chicagoland area, specifically the Jefferson Park, Norwood Park, Edison Park, (or northwest side of Chicago in general) looking for a replacement to their former chiropractor. Now, I've been going to my chiropractor for years and don't really think she can be replaced, but if I were to ever move I'd be scrambling to find another!
I'm here to tell you that you don't have to look any further than our office! We offer so many techniques and treatments, that you're bound to find what you liked about your former chiropractor, and chiropractic office. Recently we saw a patient who was so relieved to see that we used an activator, because she felt it was most comfortable and used by her former chiropractor in Wisconsin. Being able to give patients what they want, close to their new home is another reason why I love my job.
If you're new to the area and are looking for a chiropractor with a specific technique or device that they use, here's a list of what we use at Seaman Chiropractic Center:
•Diversified : The first technique is diversified which is purely done by hands. It is a quick gentle movement to correct the position of the vertebrae back to a neutral position either centered or level. This is usually used on the neck and the vast majority of patients love the way it feels. It opens up the nervous system straight from the brain and improves your immune system, arm pain, headaches, tingling and numbness, tinnitus, dizziness and so much more.
This is such a great technique, as it is so gentle and fast. Instead of being twisted on your side (called side lying) you are on a soft, cushioned treatment table on your stomach, and to reduce any pressure of the adjustment, the table drops an inch to buffer any pressure. In addition, our table is electric so it increases gentleness.
Secondly, our tables have a center portion which can be lowered so pregnant ladies can be adjusted till they are ready to give birth and men with large bellies can also be adjusted comfortably.
This technique is so successful for disc problems which can affect all your organs and conditions like sciatica [Leg pain], neuralgia and complaints related to bulged and herniated discs, facet syndromes, and other low back pains and complaints. There are currently less than four chiropractors in Chicago using it. It is also a gentle, non-force technique, as are all our methods. It works by pumping spinal discs to increase healing and relieve pinched nerves so they can begin to heal. Dr. Seaman uses a combination of her hands and an electric table that moves up and down at specific sections of your spine.You are on a comfortable, cushioned table on your stomach.
An Activator is a small hand-held instrument used to realign bones. It was designed to be an alternative method to the manual techniques chiropractors employ to manipulate the spine. We place the tip of the chiropractic activator against the area of the area to be manipulated. Then we adjust the angle of the intended pressure and apply pressure to the chiropractic activator. The instrument then delivers a precisely-measured gentle thrust in a specific direction thus coaxing misaligned bones back into place.
It is very gentle and it is especially great for patients who are scared of having their head turned or hearing a noise in their neck or for smaller joints like wrists, ribs, ankles, knees and jaws (TMJ). It is also great for children!
I would hate to be without my chiropractor, but I would hate to be without a chiropractor in general. Don't let moving to a new city or neighborhood keep you from seeking the care you need.
