Shaft Chiropractic is best known for our quality chiropractic care. With Dr. Shaft’s over 30 years of experience, we believe you and your family will benefit from chiropractic adjustments – even if you’ve seen other chiropractors before. However, in addition to chiropractic adjustments, we are focused on your family’s health as a whole and offer a number of complementary wellness services. Some of these may be prescribed my Dr. Shaft, however they are available to all. You can schedule an appointment for one of these services apart from an adjustment, and some treatments may be covered by your insurance plan. Please talk to our staff to learn more.

Chiropractic and Massage Therapy

Regular massage therapy sessions can be a key to a quicker elimination of any symptoms you may be having.  Chiropractic adjustments remove the spine’s subluxations which can be caused by tight muscles around the vertebra. Massage therapy can relax and soften those muscles enabling your body to “hold” Chiropractic adjustments for longer periods of time.  Massage therapy can also aid in the decreasing of stress and anxiety which is another cause of spinal subluxations.

What to Expect

Our licensed massage therapists will collect specific information from you on your first visit.  They will use that information to determine what areas of the body and what techniques would be beneficial for you.  During a typical massage session you will be unclothed and covered with a sheet.  Only the area that is being worked on will be exposed during your session.  Each massage table has table warmers.  The use of these along with relaxing music will aid in creating a relaxing environment during your session. During your massage it is best to relax as much as possible and communicate any questions you may have to the therapist.  Each client is encouraged to drink more water than they would normally drink during a regular day, this will help rehydrate the muscles and cleanse your body of the lactic acid that builds up in the muscles.

Cold Laser Therapy

Cold Laser therapy is another treatment we offer patients who need healing in specialized areas. We often recommend this treatment to patients who experience pain in areas related to their ankles and feet (such as plantar fasciitis), scoliosis, wrist and hands (such as carpal tunnel syndrome), joints, or other localized areas. Treatments generally run 8-20 minutes. Most patients do not feel anything while the treatment is occurring. However, many notice a significant decrease in pain and/or swelling in as little as 24hrs. Call to schedule your treatment, or ask for more information at your next appointment.
