About Chiropractic

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.

The New Wave Difference

Our Doctors in Carlsbad are immersed in a variety of different techniques and provide additional services so we can better help YOU. Each person who walks through our door is unique and we do not believe in the “one size fits all” approach to health care. By having a diverse set of skills, we can ensure you will get the best care.

Osseous Chiropractic Adjustments

We detect subluxations in your spine, which are misalignments that cause a disruption in the communication between your brain and your body.  We use the spine and extremity joints to perform adjustments that not only improve function, change spinal curvature, correct misalignments, subluxations, and mechanical problems, but they also improve your brain-body communication, so everything runs smoothly and efficiently.  We use a variety of different techniques including your classic manual adjustments with the hands.  Some of these techniques are called diversified, gonstead, extremity adjusting, upper cervical, and more.  Call or text us at 760-683-5942 to find out more. 

Light Force/Tonal Adjustment

Sometimes an individual requires or requests a softer touch. This is where we opt for using more gentle adjustments that can still be done by hand with a different technique or using a specialized tool or table. Light force and tonal adjustments are just as effective at eliminating subluxations. They create a whole-body effect, establish ease, allow you to be more connected, and ready to heal. Some of the light force adjustments we do are known as CBP, drop table, activator, arthrostim, sacral-occipital technique (SOT), cranio-sacral therapy, and all our pediatric work.

Corrective Exercise

The doctors and staff at New Wave Chiropractic Center work as a team to coach patients in the performance of special “blueprint” stretches and exercises 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. Our corrective stretches and exercises are designed to be done in the comfort of your own home for regularly for optimum convenience. 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.

Health Workshops

We believe that education is extremely powerful and important.  This is how we can empower you to understand your body and take control of your health and healing journey.  Twice a month we host workshops at our office with different topics that are picked by our practice members.  These topics are chiropractic related or general health and wellness related.  Some topics have been ergonomics in the workplace, stress management, postpartum ergonomics, movement in pregnancy, brain boosting activities for infants, sleep, digestions, supplements/diet, and more!

Our doctors love to serve and educate to achieve their vision of helping to create a healthier and more connected community.  Because of this, we offer ‘lunch & learns’ or outside workshops where we can go to your place of work or wherever your group meets and have a workshop with you and your peers.  A lot of the time we will include lunch, snacks, and sometimes wine.  If this is something you would like to set up, please call or text us at 760-683-5942.

We often have guest speakers come in to talk about additional topics that we are not experts in so that our community has access to diverse information regarding a broad spectrum of topics.  If you would like to schedule a workshop at our office, call or text us at 760-683-5942 today!

Lifestyle Advice

The doctors at New Wave Chiropractic Center treat many patients with specific 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.

Nutritional Advice

While many fad diets continue to come and go, the principles of nutrition and healthy living don’t change and are a major part of living with vitality. Our doctors are passionate about nutrition and all things surrounding food. With a deep understanding of human physiology and that the food we eat always determines the quality of our health, we can give you expert advice. 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, 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. It is our mission to build a healthy community! Contact us today at 760-683-5942 to arrange a talk at your event, workplace, or group so we can help your group learn the basics of healthy living.
