Batavia Back Pain Treatment Naturally Relieves Pain
At Sharratt Chiropractic, our chiropractor Dr. Sharratt creates customized treatment plans, combining chiropractic care and holistic therapies, to speed recovery and optimize wellness. Rather than use medication to cover up a problem, Dr. Sharratt identifies the underlying cause and uses holistic treatments to correct these conditions. The services and techniques at our Batavia wellness center include chiropractic, ultrasound, massage therapy, Electro-Muscle Stimulation, nutrition counseling and physiotherapy.
Dr. Sharratt uses gentle, hands-on chiropractic adjustments to restore alignment to the body. Our shoulder pain treatment and back pain treatment can also help manage back pain in early pregnancy and sciatica. Restoring balance to the musculoskeletal system is also effective for ADHD treatments as well as natural allergy relief, immune system enhancement, bed-wetting, asthma, colic in infants and more.
Ultrasound is a therapeutic treatment that naturally complements musculoskeletal adjustment. Following an injury, the body tries to heal itself. Without proper care, however, this can lead to the formation of scar tissue, which leads to pain and misalignment. Ultrasound therapy uses high-frequency sound waves to break down and disperse calcium build-up and scar tissue. Ultrasound naturally promotes healing by increasing blood flow, relaxing muscle spasms and massaging damaged tissues.
Massage therapy is also an important complementary treatment for pain relief and healing. During a treatment, the body naturally relaxes, lowering the levels of stress hormones and reducing muscle tension. Our licensed massage therapists use a variety of techniques, including trigger point release, deep tissue, Swedish massages, reflexology, athletic massages and lymphatic drainage massages. Massage speeds healing, reduces inflammation and helps center the mind.
We offer Electro-Muscle Stimulation to relieve pain, reduce swelling and promote internal healing. This technique helps block pain from soft tissue and muscle injuries, especially when the pain is associated with swelling and inflammation.
Interferential Electro Therapy is a type of Electro-Muscle Stimulation that is especially helpful in relieving swelling associated with soft tissues, including ligament sprains and muscle strains. A small amount of electrical impulses create a low-frequency stimulation, promoting internal healing and the release of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers. Microcurrent Therapy is another type of Electro-Muscle Stimulation that uses extremely small amounts of electrical currents to mimic the electrical signals the body naturally produces during the injury recovery process. By mimicking the body's natural signals, Microcurrent Therapy stimulates internal healing.
Proper nutrition is an important component to whole body wellness and essential to helping the body heal after an injury. Dr. Sharratt makes specific dietary recommendations to accelerate healing and maintain wellness. For example, for patients recovering from an injury, high protein diets help the body rebuild damaged muscles and soft tissues.
Antioxidants combat free radicals that lead to inflammation and can worsen chronic musculoskeletal pain. Dr. Sharratt's recommendations are tailored to each individual's injury and wellness lifestyle needs.
Following an injury, it's natural to experience stiffness and soreness in different parts of the body. Your body may also naturally adjust its movements to avoid causing more pain to injured body parts. This can lead to further misalignment of the musculoskeletal system. Physiotherapy is an important treatment that uses corrective exercises to restore a full range of movement, flexibility and coordination to the body.
