What is chiropractic?
Over the last century, chiropractic care has grown into the third-largest health care science in America.
This natural, hands-on practice focuses on aligning the body’s structure and removing nervous system interference to allow the entire body to function optimally. Whereas drugs and surgery treat symptoms – often creating new problems in the process – a chiropractor’s goal is to find the
source of the problem and correct it.
What can chiropractic do for me?
When your spine is in line and your nervous system is functioning at its absolute best, your body is primed to work more efficiently and effectively. At Cloud Peak Chiropractic, we have successfully addressed hundreds of conditions including any kind of joint, back, and neck pain; headaches; sports injuries; scoliosis; and tendonitis.
I’m pregnant or expecting. Is chiropractic care an option for me?
In short – absolutely! In fact, chiropractic care can help you feel better and function more fully
throughout your pregnancy, and it’s a wonderful, non-invasive way to care for both mother and baby during the fourth trimester. Dr. Sarah Radabaugh has received specialized training in the care of pregnant women, infants, and children, and she’s passionate about giving every member of your growing family the personalized attention and care they need to thrive.
What chiropractic techniques do your doctors use?
Our doctors tailor their adjustments to each individual patient. They incorporate a variety of techniques, including Diversified, Drop, Activator, Webster, Cox Traction/Distraction, and CranioSacral Therapy.
What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture may be a relatively new arrival to the health care landscape here in the western
world, but this remarkable practice has been used to treated pain and dysfunction in the body for nearly 7000 years. Early Chinese physicians mapped an energy network (also known as
meridians) located just beneath the skin. These meridians work with all of the body’s systems — circulatory, nervous, muscular, and digestive — and when one of those pathways are blocked or weakened, your body’s balance is thrown off kilter.
Acupuncture stimulates specific meridian points to help restore harmony and encourage optimal function.
How can acupuncture help me?
According to the World Health Organization, acupuncture is effective for more than 100
conditions. At Cloud Peak Chiropractic, we employ acupuncture as part of our treatment plans
for acute and chronic pain, migraines, tension headaches, neuralgia, bedwetting, asthma,
allergies, skin conditions, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, high blood pressure, fatigue,
and anxiety, as well as addressing addiction control in relation to smoking and overeating.
How does acupuncture work?
We use a completely sterile technique involving disposable acupuncture needles. We also offer a needle-free form of acupuncture using electricity which is a welcome alternative for children or adults with a fear of needles.
Does acupuncture hurt?
For most people, acupuncture is a painless experience. You may feel a dull ache or tingly
vibration where the needle is inserted, and some areas may be more sensitive than others. That tingly feeling, which is referred to as de qi in Chinese medicine, is a sign that the meridians are being stimulated and the healing process has begun.
What is massage therapy?
Massage is so prevalent these days that you can indulge in a 15-minute session at the shopping mall or even the airport, but this hands-on, restorative technique is also one of the oldest healing arts in the world. Massage is documented in Chinese records dating back some 3,000 years, and Greek physician Hippocrates wrote papers recommending the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems.
More than just feeling good, massage therapy does good.
How can massage therapy help me?
The benefits of massage are varied and far-reaching. At Cloud Peak Chiropractic, we
recommend massage therapy for treating chronic conditions including low back pain, arthritis,
bursitis, fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, immunity suppression, infertility, smoking
cessation, depression, and more. And of course, as many millions will attest, massage also helps relieve the stress and tension of everyday living that can so often lead to disease and illness.
