For years, Dr. Samantha Stuart has been helping patients recover from car accidents, sports injuries, workplace accidents and spinal medical conditions. She has successfully treated conditions like whiplash, herniated disc, bulging disc, sciatica, degenerative disc disease and much more. On your initial visit with the doctor, a full medical history is taken and physical exam is performed. Examination tests include neurological and orthopedic. Imaging tests, like X-rays, may be ordered to accurately identify the root cause and make a specific diagnosis. Treatment plans are custom tailored to meet each patient’s unique condition and needs.
Your spine is a complex network of bones, tendons, ligaments, nerves and muscles. Even a low impact car accident can cause muscle strain or a misalignment of the spine’s vertebrae. Dr. Samantha Stuart uses two chiropractic adjustment methods for back pain and injuries – the Thompson technique and the Diversified technique. The Diversified technique is a traditional one in which specific sections of the spine are manipulated to return its components into proper alignment. The Thompson technique focuses on applying pressure to the spinal joints.
Physical therapy, massage therapy and nutritional counseling are complementary services that enhance the effects of spinal adjustment. Physical therapy consists of corrective exercises to strengthen muscles and increase function. There are so many advantages to massage therapy when used in conjunction with spinal adjustments. It increases blood circulation for the delivery of healing nutrients, relaxes muscles, boosts the immune system and accelerates the body’s natural healing process. With nutritional counseling, patients learn all about natural supplements, vitamins and healthy food choices. Patients can also purchase essential oils like lavender and vanilla for anti-inflammation, pain reduction and anti-bacterial effects. Research has proven that essential oils are effective for healing.
