ADDITIONAL SERVICES

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 and more effective than ever before. Our doctors specialize in treating the whole body using primarily Diversified Chiropractic Manipulation.  To maximize patient response to treatment we also provide additional intersegmental traction therapy as well as hydrotherapy, when clinically indicated. 

Corrective Exercises & Postural Screening

At Hanrahan Chiropractic Offices, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities 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. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.

Like chiropractic, massage is a "hands on" therapy used to promote healing and improve circulation, which increases blood flow, bringing fresh oxygen to body tissues. This can assist the elimination of waste products, speed healing after injury, and enhance recovery from disease.  Massage therapists may use a variety of techniques to address your soft tissue problems.

AquaMED Dry Hydrotherapy

Research has shown massage, heat and whirlpool to have the following effects:

 

  • Increased blood circulation for better homeostasis

  • Decreased muscle tension for better movement 

  • Increased oxygen absorption in the blood stream for better energy 

  • Decreased inflammation and muscular toxins for better injury recovery 

  • Increased release of endorphins for better feeling of well-being 

  • Decreased blood pressure for better circulatory health and stress relief 

  • Decreased muscle guarding for better effectiveness of treatments 

  • Increased muscular range of motion for better flexibility 

Intersegmental Spinal Traction

Intersegmental spinal traction offers the following health benefits:

 

  • Mobilizes the spinal column while simultaneously and gently stretching muscles and ligaments

  • Increases blood flow and oxygen to discs, ligaments, and muscles, thereby improving balance, strength and mobility

  • Gently and effectively assists in restoring normal range of motion to the spine

  • Facilitates muscle relaxation to help reduce muscle spasm

Cold Light Laser

The LaserTouchOne™ is the only pain relief device on the market that combines two proven therapies: low level laser therapy and micro-current electrical stimulation, which promote the body’s natural healing process at the cellular level.

Vitamins and Supplements

We offer Standard Process whole food supplements. To ensure the freshest vitamins and supplements we only keep a limited amount on hand.  If there is something you would like or have questions about which vitamins or supplements might be right for you, please contact one of our offices and we would be happy to help you.

Othopedic Cervical Pillows

The right pillow can make a BIG difference!  How you feel throughout the day could be a direct result of the quality of sleep you had the night before.  Unlike traditional pillows, which prop your head up and place added stress to your neck, orthopedic cervical pillows support your neck and reinforce its natural curve.

Biofreeze Cold Therapy

Biofreeze pain relieving gel helps relieve pain from sore muscles & muscle sprains; back, shoulder, neck pain;  arthritis; painful joints; and muscle strains.  Biofreeze is greaseless, does not stain, and its mild scent disappears shortly after application.
Helps provide excellent pain relief when used prior to: 

  • Ultrasound Treatments

  • Massage Therapy

  • Soft Tissue Trigger Point Therapy

  • Rehabilitation Exercises

  • Pre and Post Workout Stretch

Custom Orthotics

Your feet are your foundation. Feet are often the starting point for pain. Patients' feet do not have to hurt for them to be causing pain/imbalances somewhere else in their bodies. Pain in the neck, low back, hips, legs, and knees can be from having an unbalanced foundation. Posture starts from the ground up. Orthotics help maintain the feet's arch system, called the plantar vault, which help to balance the body's posture from the ground up. The plantar vault optimizes the body by:

  • Giving strength to support the weight of the entire body

  • Permitting flexibility to accommodate changes in terrain

  • Providing momentum for movement
