Dr. Angelika has been part of the health scene for over 20 years. Her integrated approach to health care includes a number of complementary and alternative options.
Chiropractic is the relationship between structure and function in the human body, primarily between the spine and nervous system. Dr. Angelika uses a variety of manual hand adjusting and instrument (Activator) adjusting techniques to restore proper motion to your spine and restore proper nerve function.
Along with traditional Chiropractic care, Dr. Angelika uses Active Release Technique (ART). ART is a specialized soft tissue technique that effectively treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.
She also offers CranioSacral Therapy. CranioSacral Therapy detects and corrects imbalances in the craniosacral system, which may be the cause of sensory, motor or neurological dysfunction. Our functional muscle assessment and rehabilitation assesses the imbalances of movement that contribute to recurrent pain patterns and recommends safe, progressive exercises to help eliminate the problem. Exercise therapy and personal training is available for chiropractic patients who need rehabilitation or conditioning as part of their treatment program.
Orthotics are custom-made and scientifically designed for the individual’s unique postural problems.
Products for health and personal fitness are available at the clinic. This includes: orthotics, neck and lower back supports, exercise equipment and self-care therapy equipment. We carry a variety of nutritional supports including vitamins, minerals, glucosamine etc.
Foot Levelers – Custom made Orthotics
Even if your feet don’t hurt, they may be a major factor contributing to your health problem or may be the cause of discomfort or pain in your legs, knees, hips, back shoulder and neck. “Your feet are the foundation of your body-the first “link in the chain” that goes all the way up through your neck. And if your feet are out of balance, pain can result anywhere alone the chain. That’s why your Dr. Angelika might begin with a foot examination when you have pain or discomfort in your leg, hip, back or neck.
