Chiropractic care is a holistic and non-invasive approach to health that focuses on the musculoskeletal system, particularly the spine. Dr. Kevin Hogan, DC uses manual adjustments and other techniques to address misalignments, alleviate pain, and enhance overall well-being. This natural and personalized form of healthcare aims to optimize the body’s innate ability to heal itself, promoting improved mobility, reduced discomfort, and a balanced state of health.

Axial Decompression

Vertebral Axial Decompression (VAX-D) is a type of lumbar traction that has been investigated as a technique to reduce intradiscal pressure and relieve low back pain associated with herniated lumbar discs or degenerative lumbar disc disease.

Axial decompression is a non-surgical method that focuses on reducing pressure on and between the discs of the spinal column, allowing the body to relax and resist muscle spasm and chronic pain caused by bulging discs, sciatica, and other degenerative conditions. In alleviating one or several pinched nerves of the spinal column using mechanical traction devices, axial decompression is a safe and effective alternative to invasive procedures.

Like all of our services, our approach in axial decompression is geared toward the patient’s individual needs, paying special attention to which part of the spine is affected as treatments for the upper back and neck differ from the necessary treatments for the lower back.

Neuromuscular Massage Therapy

Neuromuscular massage is a specialized therapy seamlessly integrated into chiropractic patient care to enhance the overall healing process. This targeted massage technique focuses on alleviating tension and trigger points in muscles, addressing imbalances in the nervous system. By combining neuromuscular massage with chiropractic adjustments, patients often experience a comprehensive approach to pain relief, improved flexibility, and heightened overall well-being. This synergistic combination aims to optimize the functioning of both the muscular and skeletal systems, fostering a holistic and effective approach to patient care.

Medical Marijuana Qualification

At East Hill Medical Group, we offer a variety of services that treat a wide range of chiropractic conditions, including our medical cannabis clinic through which patients may be recommended to obtain a medical marijuana card to complement our chiropractic care. This medical system provides relief for patients in a way that is unique to their individual conditions.

Frequently asked questions

Chiropractic care is known for addressing a range of conditions, including back pain, neck pain, headaches, and musculoskeletal issues. Chiropractors also provide care for conditions like sciatica, joint pain, and sports injuries. It’s essential to consult with a chiropractor to determine the specific suitability of chiropractic care for your individual needs.

Chiropractic care is generally considered safe when performed by trained and licensed professionals. Chiropractors undergo extensive education and training to ensure the safety and effectiveness of their treatments. It’s crucial to provide your chiropractor with a complete medical history to ensure that the care plan is tailored to your specific health requirements.

The timeframe for experiencing results from chiropractic care varies depending on the individual and the nature of the condition. Some patients may feel relief after the first session, while others may require multiple sessions for more chronic issues. The chiropractor will discuss a personalized treatment plan and set realistic expectations during the initial consultation.

Chiropractic adjustments are typically not painful. Patients may experience some mild discomfort or pressure during the adjustment, but this is usually momentary. Chiropractors use gentle and controlled techniques to ensure patient comfort. If you have concerns about the adjustment process, it’s advisable to discuss them with your chiropractor beforehand.

The frequency of chiropractic visits depends on the individual’s health goals, the nature of the condition being treated, and the chiropractor’s recommendations. Initially, more frequent visits may be suggested to address acute issues, with the frequency decreasing as the patient progresses. Regular check-ups may also be recommended for ongoing wellness care. Your chiropractor will discuss an appropriate schedule based on your specific needs.

Before a chiropractic adjustment, it’s important to communicate openly with your chiropractor and provide relevant information for a safe and effective treatment. Here are key things to discuss with your chiropractor:

Medical History: Share details about your medical history, including any existing health conditions, surgeries, or chronic illnesses. This information helps the chiropractor understand your overall health and tailor the adjustment accordingly.

Medications: Inform your chiropractor about any medications, supplements, or over-the-counter drugs you are currently taking. Certain medications may impact how your body responds to adjustments, and your chiropractor can adjust their approach accordingly.

Existing Pain or Discomfort: Describe any specific areas of pain or discomfort you are experiencing. Providing details about the location, intensity, and duration of your symptoms helps the chiropractor target their adjustments effectively.

Previous Injuries or Trauma: Inform your chiropractor about any past injuries or traumas, especially those related to the spine or musculoskeletal system. Previous injuries can influence the chiropractic treatment plan and approach.

Expectations and Concerns: Clearly communicate your expectations for the chiropractic adjustment and any concerns you may have. Discuss your wellness goals and any specific outcomes you are hoping to achieve through chiropractic care.

Open communication with your chiropractor ensures that the adjustment is tailored to your individual needs and concerns, promoting a positive and collaborative treatment experience. If you have any questions or uncertainties, don’t hesitate to discuss them with your chiropractor before the adjustment.
