Chiropractic Care

Adjusting womanAs chiropractors, Dr. Schappell and Dr. Demers focus on the mobility of your joints and the structures that surround them. If you have an area of your body that isn’t moving as it should, we seek to restore its mobility. That may include a chiropractic adjustment, muscle work, ultrasound, electric muscle stimulation or heat therapy, among our other solutions.

We don’t just look at your spine—we check the ligaments, tendons and muscles that are around your joints to make sure the entire region functions as it should.

Experience the Many Benefits of Chiropractic

When everything in your body is working as it should, the parasympathetic nervous activity increases. In turn, you’ll be more relaxed. Your body can digest food, doesn’t have as many stress hormones, can move better and do all of your daily activities.

There are many techniques we use for our practice members:

  • ConnecTX using Graston tools. Enhance your joint and muscle mobility, reduce pain, break up adhesions and address strains or sprains. This technique can also target trigger points and is ideal for both short-term & long-term injuries.
  • Cox Flexion-Distraction. If you have low back troubles, this method gently stretches the joints in this area. The goal is to increase the hydration, or health, of your joints, which will boost the amount of cushion in your low back.
  • TMJ (temporomandibular or the jaw joint) Techniques. People who grind, clench, have had recent dental procedures or have had a jaw injury can benefit from these methods.
  • Active Release Techniques (**) A hands-one soft tissue technique the addresses injuries and health conditions in a holistic and personal approach.
  • Rock Tape®. An injury can lead to swelling and pain. This therapeutic tape provides structural support while minimizing discomfort. It is ideal for plantar fasciitis, joint pain, muscle injuries and bruise reduction.
  • Custom Orthotics. Foot Levelers custom-created orthotics can provide your body with the strong foundation it needs. We’ll fit them for you according to your lifestyle and comfort.

We may also utilize Diversified, adjusting, Cold Laser therapy, motion palpation, and trigger point muscle release when appropriate.

The Individualized Care You Need

At Schappell Chiropractic Center, we tailor what we do for you with no cookie-cutter approach to care. If you are in acute pain, we’ll likely see you more often at first, then reduce the frequency as you get better. Ongoing care can help you stay well, though the choice to continue seeing us is always up to you.
