Before we can treat you, we must first evaluate what treatment you will need. After a series of questions about your pain, the chiropractor will perform several tests involving reflexes, flexion, posture, and sometimes, x-ray or MRI.
Muscle testing is used to find out which parts of the body need adjustment and to check if that muscle is working successfully. The doctor touches key points in the body and test if a certain muscle is weak or strong. Once tested key points can be determined as needing correction and adjusting.
Acupressure is an ancient Chinese health practice that evolved from inserting needles in a body to today’s electronic acupuncture devices. This stimulates production of certain chemicals in the brain. These chemicals changes help to reduce pain or release other chemicals, such as hormones, that influences the body’s self-regulating systems.
Applied Kinesiology allows Dr. Cohen to detect nutritional or acupuncture imbalances, muscles that are weak or turned off, allergies, problems with the spine, problems with digestion, infection, fatigue, depression, anxiety, weight loss issues, and more.
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy is a non-invasive, pain-free way of reducing inflammation, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain. Laser therapy has been cleared by the FDA and has proven to be successful by numerous studies from Harvard and other highly prestigious universities. Cold laser therapy is completely pain free. It works by converting light into biochemical energy (similar to photosynthesis in plants) which creates “super cells” which expedites the healing process and gets rid of pain.
