We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. We offer low force computer aided adjustments which are gentle and safe for even our 90 year old patients. We also offer traditional hands on adjustments. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Sheila Harrod has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
At Harrod Chiropractic your massage session will take place in a warm, comfortable quiet room. Your session will be conducted by a trained massage professional. The average full body massage session lasts approximately one hour. A half hour session only allows time for a partial massage, such as neck and shoulders or back and legs. Our professionals use a combination of Swedish, Shiatsu and Deep Tissue massage techniques. Massage therapy relaxes tight muscles, reduces pain from muscle spasms, increases blood flow to provide healing to an area, as well as promotes a general sense of well being.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Dr. Sheila Harrod can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
