At Vigil Family Chiropractic, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. See below for some of the services and techniques that are offered at our office.
At Vigil Family Chiropractic, we provide advanced joint correction methods for the spine and extremities using "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. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Vigil has years of training and experience in spinal and extremity adjustments. Dr. Vigil uses a variety of adjustment techniques, such as Diversified, Thompson Drop, Gonstead, SOT Blocking, Instrument-assisted adjusting and Mobilization.
We offer a variety of modalities that are coupled with the Chiropractic treatment. We offer Electrical Muscle Stimulation, Ice Packs, Moist heat Packs, and soft tissues treatments, such as Manual Release Technique, Trigger Point Therapy, Neuromuscular Re-education, and Muscle Stripping. All of these modalities help to reduce inflammation, pain, spasm, scar tissue, adhesions and promote quicker recovery times.
At Vigil Family Chiropractic, a specific rehab exercise program is developed for each patient's condition. These exercises will help speed up recovery time, increase the effectiveness of the spinal and/or extremity adjustments, and can be done from the convenience of your home. Muscles and connective tissues can be altered and be dysfunctional, in correlation with the skeletal misalignment. Performing the specific exercises that stretch and strengthen the surrounding tissues will help to decrease the joint misalignment.
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 recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
Vigil Family Chiropractic provides patients with custom orthotics from Foot Levelers. Dr. Vigil will perform an evaluation of your feet in the office that can reveal imbalances in the feet that can lead to problems in the ankles, knees, hips back and spine. There are many different shoe inserts or orthotics on the market but it is important to get custom orthotics for your specific needs and anatomy. Stabilizing Orthotics were made by a chiropractor to treat the body as a functional unit and give you the support you need.
At Vigil Family Chiropractic, the person is seen from a holistic perspective. Proper nutrition is paramount for the achievement of optimal health. Counseling includes proper forms of vitamins and minerals to take for maximum absoprtion, how to avoid supplement-supplement and supplement-medication interactions, and proper food to eat for a healthy lifestyle.
