At Awaken Wellness, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic care to each and every patient. We have included information below about the different chiropractic services offered in our Brisbane chiropractic office, but please call us at (650) 688-2020 if you have any questions!
Chiropractic Care and Soft Tissue Rehabilitation
We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable, more gentle and more effective than ever before. As a chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Dr. Lorraine Sarullo has years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.
In addition to chiropractic adjustments, we use manual physical therapies such as Modern Cupping therapy, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Release and Neuromuscular Reeducation techniques to rehabilitate injured soft tissue (muscle, tendon, ligament and fascia)
Inflammation due to any trauma (including repetitive trauma) results in fibrotic repair. This often leads to adhesions and other malfunctioning in the joint AND soft tissue that hold the body in tension.
When adhesions are not addressed, symptoms (often pain) persist or return. The longer adhesions remain in the soft tissue and joints, the greater the problem becomes. Pain, reduced mobility and degeneration may begin. When unaddressed, more adhesions form and more areas become involved(an ankle problem can become a knee problem, knee problem can become a hp problem, arm problem a shoulder problem,...etc.)
We address the soft tissue in addition to the chiropractic care and cranial sacral treatments for fuller, more complete healing.
At Awaken Wellness, we teach our patients how to perform special therapeutic exercises which can help strengthen and correct the dysfunction in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. As discussed above, muscles and connective soft tissues require rehabilitation, and some back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by dysfunction in the muscles and soft tissues, that may worsen injuries over time. Corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor are integral to your recovery and help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
Modern Therapeutic Cupping and Muscle Therapies
Muscle therapies do more than make you feel good. They help your body achieve balance and health, while offering a natural treatment that relaxes muscles and relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. The benefits of these therapies may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Cupping and muscle therapies are known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Our chiropractic office offers both modern cupping therapy and specific therapeutic muscular therapy to compliment chiropractic care. Each therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your spinal health is no exception. Posture and spinal screenings by a trained and experienced chiropractor such as Dr. Lorraine Sarullo can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being. In order to help the Brisbane and surrounding communities, we provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today at (650) 688-2020 to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
