At our office we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our office.
We provide a variety of manual therapies combining chiropractic techniques and soft tissue treatments. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. The care patients receive at our office is even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic and Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician, Dr. Keith Overland has over 28 years of training and experience with patients ranging from elite athletes from around the world to "world class" families from right here in Fairfield County.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises 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. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
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.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Dr. Keith Overland can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
Physically active people come in all ages shapes and sizes. Some exercise daily while others once a week or two. As a result many injuries occur based on two major factors. 1. Over use or over training. That is when someone does a sport or exercise so much that they over work the body and it reacts with pain and inflammation. These injuries often are chronic and repetitive in nature and can last for many weeks or months. 2. Injuries. While this category is obvious in some bad traumas, its not so clear when pain starts a few days later. Injuries that are severe often require immediate emergency attention. Others such as a pulled muscle or sprained tendon or ligament can worsen over time. Many sports injuries are successfully treated with natural conservative approaches. Treatment will focus initially on helping the pain, but will always include a review of the way the activity is performed to help prevent future occurrences.
Work Related Injuries
One of the most common reasons people visit a doctor is because of discomfort related to work. In many cases its the many hours on a computer for others its a slip and fall or simply an unforeseen accident. Since the insurance coverage for work injuries is often different, it is important to make a determination as soon as possible the extent of the injury and its impact on your ability to work. Workers compensation insurance covers you in our office. You do not necessarily need to go to the office recommended by work. In fact most people would rather have their own personal provider take care of their health care needs. The most common injuries we see from workers are sprains and strains followed by wrist, elbow and hand pain and then very frequently headaches.
