StemWave

STEMWAVE! – It truly is a game-changer.   This thermal image is from one of our patients with chronic knee pain “before & after” their initial StemWave treatment. In the “before” image, yellow and red signify inflammation, while in the “after” image, blue and purple indicate a restored, healthy joint. When utilizing thermal imaging, a healthy joint usually displays shades of blue and purple, reflecting its naturally lower vascularization.

 

StemWave can treat neck, back, upper and lower extremities, and soft tissue injuries.  It is non-invasive, promotes natural healing, has no negative side effects, and has no downtime. Additionally, StemWave brings a remarkable 40% increase in blood flow to the treated area, while simultaneously reducing inflammation. 

We are excited to share this treatment with our chiro patients.  In May, we are offering a free StemWave treatment to 5 of our existing chiro patients.  Check out our new bulletin board when visiting our Fishhawk office for a chance to snag one of the free StemWave treatment cards!

We are excited to announce that we are now taking Care Credit.  Care Credit is a health, wellness, and personal care credit card that provides you with a convenient, flexible way to pay for health care.

Check out our website for more information and to book an appointment.  You can also reach us at 813-793-7791.

Why Athletes Need Chiropractic Care

Athletes know the importance of keeping their bodies in peak physical shape but often don’t know the proper treatment techniques to make this happen effectively. Weight training, speed and agility, stretching, and rest are common ways to improve athletic performance.  However, many athletes might not be aware that chiropractic care can improve athletic performance. Chiropractic care ensures athletes of all ages stay where they belong: in the game doing what they love.

1. Recovery and Rehabilitation

  • Healing Time: The off-season provides an opportunity for athletes to heal from any injuries sustained during the competitive season. Chiropractic care can facilitate faster and more effective recovery by addressing musculoskeletal issues.
  • Injury Rehabilitation: Dr. Bob can help rehabilitate injuries, ensuring proper healing and preventing chronic problems.

2. Preventative Maintenance

  • Address Imbalances: Off-season is an ideal time to address any muscle imbalances or misalignments that could lead to injuries.

3. Performance Optimization

  • Enhance Flexibility and Strength: Chiropractic care can improve flexibility, range of motion, and overall strength, which are crucial for peak performance.
  • Improve Biomechanics: By ensuring the body is properly aligned, Dr. Bob can help athletes improve their biomechanics, leading to more efficient and effective movements.

4. Posture and Alignment Correction

  • Correct Misalignments: During the off-season, athletes can focus on correcting any postural issues or spinal misalignments that may have developed during intense training and competition.
  • Spinal Health: Maintaining good spinal health is essential for overall well-being and performance.

5. Custom Training Plans

  • Individualized Care: Dr. Bob can work with athletes to develop personalized care plans that address specific needs and goals for the off-season.

6. Long-term Health Benefits

  • Support Growth: For young athletes, the off-season is a good time to focus on long-term health and development, ensuring that their bodies grow correctly and remain strong.
  • Establish Healthy Habits: Regular chiropractic care can instill habits that promote long-term health and wellness.

Incorporating chiropractic care during the off-season helps young athletes recover, maintain their physical health, and prepare their bodies for the next competitive season, leading to better performance and fewer injuries.
