Always Chiropractic & Wellness, PLLC is a different type of health care center in the Seattle marketplace. And what makes us truly unique beyond the quantity and quality of our services, modern facilities, and professional relationships is our people. Each has been hand-picked and is a highly-skilled professional that treats each practice member as their most important member.
We take great pride in providing the best services possible. Below is a sampling of these services.
We provide advanced spinal correction in our Seattle practice utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. 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.
The treatments of choice to correct subluxations (misalignments) and fixations (reduced joint motion) of the spine which may cause "pinched", irritated, or inflamed nerves. Symptoms are acute or chronic pain with irregular early wearing out of joints called arthritis.
Surface EMG Testing
We utilize the Insight Millennium II Surface EMG testing to evaluate the patterns of nerve activity radiating out from the spine through the back, allowing us to better diagnose abnormal neurological and musculo-skeletal conditions. This second generation subluxation testing technology objectively helps us: (1) Detect areas of nerve disturbance, (2) Document and monitor your results, and (3) Deliver the appropriate Chiropractic care.
Deep tissue, craniosacral, myofascial release, acupressure, sports, and cross fiber techniques release muscle spasm, improve circulation and reduce the effects of stress.
Operating out of this office is Kathryn Tooker, L.Ac., who provides our patients with one of the oldest, "newest" forms of wellness medicine: Acupuncture. Today in most western cultures Acupuncture is considered a "new alternative" medicine. In reality Acupuncture (and its related Moxibustion) are practiced medical treatments that are over 5,000 years old. Very basically, Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine needles, (sometimes in conjunction with electrical stimulus), on the body's surface, in order to influence physiological functioning of the body. Acupuncture can also be used in conjunction with heat produced by burning specific herbs, this is called Moxibustion. In addition, a non-invasive method of massage therapy, called Acupressure, can also be effective.
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%.
We can custom fit supports and appliances to assist your body in its healing process.
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 provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patients' return to optimal health.
