Corrective Chiropractic Care
Your body is an amazing machine, capable of incredible acts and capable of healing itself from almost every obstacle that does not kill you. In order for your body to perform these miracles, the brain must be able to communicate with all tissues in the body. For this to happen, the spine and nerve system must work together to maintain proper nerve flow. Chiropractors are the only doctor trained specifically for this purpose and the best doctor suited to this job. Chiropractic Care that focuses on correcting the source of your problem, rather than masking the symptom it creates is what the doctors and staff at New Wave Chiropractic Center specialize in.
In general people will fall into one of three categories, crisis care, designed to get rid of pain, corrective care designed to correct the underlying problem, and then maintenance care/wellness care, designed to keep a healthy body working great over a lifetime. In a perfect world people would come into our office as maintenance/wellness patients and have many fewer health “crisis” moments in their life. It is much easier to maintain good health than to recover it when lost.
Scientifically Advanced Techniques
Advanced technology at our spine center in Carlsbad are catalysts to faster results for spine pain including digital motion X-Ray, Nerve Scans, neuromuscular rehabilitation, traction, spinal and whole body rehab exercises, brain based rehab, dietary and supplementation advice and the use of laser therapy help us get results that other offices just cannot match.
Corrective Chiropractic Techniques
Proper spine alignment, strength and function are key to avoiding spinal pain. Our spine center uses Corrective Chiropractic Techniques proven to improve function, change spinal curvatures, correct spinal misalignments and mechanical problems, and designed to slow and prevent spinal degeneration.
The doctors and staff at New Wave Chiropractic Center work as a team to teach our patients how to perform special “blueprint” exercises and stretches which reinforce your chiropractic care and accelerate your healing. We find this is critical for our patients to get results faster and maintain corrections longer than adjustments alone. These corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home. Our spinal care workshops are tailored to patients going through a corrective chiropractic program, but are extremely valuable for everyone and available to the public with advanced notice.
Spinal Screenings and Healthy Workshops
There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your spinal health is no exception. Posture and spinal screenings by a trained and experienced chiropractor, such as Dr. Paul Hodgson and Dr. Joe Botkin can help detect problems like scoliosis, movement disorders, and forward head posture before they become spine pain and spine degeneration. In order to serve the Carlsbad community, we provide screenings at community events, health fairs and places of employment. Many times the doctors volunteer to do this free of charge as a service to the community.
We also offer workshops on a variety of important health concerns like sleep, digestion, diet, supplements, posture, and mindset. Our patients rave about these events and they help them get healthy beyond the chiropractic adjustment. These can be attended at our chiropractic center in Carlsbad or they can be scheduled wherever your group meets.
Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. Chiropractic has a reputation of being incredibly effective at treating pain and conditions, however the doctors at New Wave Chiropractic Center realize that if we never address the causes of your pain, we cannot make the impact in your health and in your life that you desire. It is for this reason that we must address lifestyle factors contributing to your condition and incorporate changes to help achieve specific goals. Getting into the right headspace can often be the difference between success and failure and our chiropractors are masters at empowering and changing headspace.
While many fad diets continue to come and go, the principle of nutrition and healthy living don’t change and could be more important than any other services & techniques we provide. Our doctors have developed a nutritional program that utilizes the latest understanding of human physiology with an understanding that the food we eat always determines the quality of our health. Our chiropractors don’t focus on an outcome like weight-loss or weight gain. When we eat real foods with a proper understanding, a healthy weight is always the result. Our goal is to give your body the building blocks it needs to build healthy tissues and remove toxins, and give you the tools to make healthy choices for a lifetime.
Our team at New Wave Chiropractic Center is also incredibly passionate about sharing information on how to get and stay healthy. We present on a wide range of topics and no group is too big or too small. We will even buy your group a meal. It is our mission to build a healthy community so we always do these events free of charge upon request. Contact us today at 760-683-5942 to arrange a talk at your event, workplace or group. Call today and let us know how we can help your group learn the basics of healthy living. This tends to inspire people to seek our services so our office grows when we do these events, which is why we are able to pay for the food and volunteer our time.
These guys are great! I came to them after suffering for months with sciatic nerve problems, Dr. Paul was awesome! He never lectured me about being over weight or looked down on me for getting myself into this situation, he was compassionate and professional. He understood the pain I was in and came up with a game plane to get me back in shape. These two (Dr. Gina and Dr. Paul) are really compassionate care givers. They are top in their field and make the effort to educating you while providing great treatments, I can't recommend them enough. If you have been hesitant signing up with a chiropractor in the past, shake those concerns and make your way to New Wave. I can promise you this, if your fixable and you follow the plan the build for you, Dr. Paul and Dr. Gina will put you back in line!
