Thorough chiropractic care is a full body assessment.
As a certified extremity specialist , Dr. Adam Sandahl adjusts more than your typical chiropractor does, assessing every joint and every extremity, from shoulders, elbows, knees, and ankles, to every rib, finger, and toe!
Maintaining that we keep our alignment from our feet up, Dr. Adam makes custom orthotics in-house. He attests that most podiatrists make "pathological orthotics" because they do not align the toes, ankle, and every bone and tendon in the foot before creating an orthotic insert.
Focused on continuity of care, Dr. Adam kinesio-tapes (known as "K-tape") areas of joint or muscle strain to allow further support to keep your adjustment as you leave the office.
Kinesiology taping is a method performed by Dr. Adam which supports the circulation near inflamed or injured tissue, allowing it to properly, while simultaneously supporting the affected area, allowing for mobility. K-tape, in essence, allows you to “take your adjustment home with you” by way of maintaining proper alignment and support of a joint, muscle, and/or ligament.
Dr. Adam includes k-tape with chiropractic adjustments when a patient is a candidate for such procedure, however, patients may book a single k-tape appointment with Dr. Adam for just $15. TIER Monthly Members get unlimited k-tape.
- Many athletes and Olympians have been seen wearing kinesio-tape during peak performance such as Olympic Volleyball Gold Medalist Kerri Walsh or TIER’s very own, Dr. Lori Mann, who was taped by Dr. Adam just before her Olympic Trials race.
What You Need to Know About Chiropractic
A chiropractor is a health care professional who specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders that affect the spine. Chiropractors are trained to look for misalignments of the vertebrae which can cause pain or other symptoms. This article will detail what you need to know about chiropractic!
What are the benefits of Chiropractic?
1. Improves neck pain:
Neck pain is a serious issue, especially if you sit for many hours at work or have poor posture. A chiropractor may be able to help ease your neck issues by realigning your spine and easing tension in the muscles around it – this could make all the difference when dealing with chronic discomfort!
2. Reduces reliance on opioid pain relievers:
Chronic back pain can be a debilitating condition, but often overused prescriptions for opioid based medications pose serious health risks. Chiropractic care is an effective and safe alternative to managing chronic conditions such as low back pain!
3. Eases back pain:
Back pain can be a debilitating condition and often comes on suddenly. Chiropractic care is not only good for the treatment of back conditions like sciatica (pain that runs through your buttock and down your leg), but it also helps prevent them!
Chiropractic care uses spinal manipulation to correct misalignments which can put pressure on the nerves and cause pain or other symptoms. By realigning your spine, you will feel better faster!
4. Possible reduction of osteoarthritis symptoms
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease which causes pain and stiffness in the joints. Chiropractic care has been shown to reduce osteoarthritic symptoms or even prevent them!
5. Eases headache symptoms
Some people suffer from chronic tension headaches, migraines or even cluster headaches. Chiropractic care is a safe and effective treatment option for these types of headache!
