The Palmer Package is a variety of techniques taught at the Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, the birthplace of chiropractic in 1895. The techniques used in our office include the Diversified, Gonstead, and Activator techniques.The Diversified technique is an adjusting style used here at Wageman Chiropractic. Beginning with a spinal analysis, our chiropractors use this method to identify spinal bones that have shifted from their appropriate position. A specific manual thrusting motion is then administered according to precisely what area is misaligned in each patient's spine. The thorough understanding of spinal mechanics, and the many years experience of our staff adds to the effectiveness of the Diversified technique at our St. George clinic. Also part of The Palmer Package, the Gonstead technique uses a heat-sensing instrument to reveal subluxation patterns in the spine. Using x-rays along with the instrument when needed, our chiropractic team is able to evaluate every area of your spine and accurately apply this technique. The integrity of your entire spine can be restored in a seated position, if necessary, while keeping your neck straight to avoid muscle tension. A lighter pressure technique with a high success rate for patients, the Activator technique, uses a hand-held adjusting instrument which provides consistent, low mechanical force adjustments. By utilizing the instrument on various bodily locations, it gently corrects misalignments. The specific misalignments in each patient's body are determined by analyzing leg length abnormalities. Wageman Chiropractic can use this as well as other orthopedic and neurologic tests on extremities in addition to the spine.
Dr. Wageman is also trained extensively in lower and upper extremity adjusting techniques.
Oftentimes, chiropractic care can relieve back pain better than medication or other medical approaches. Wageman Chiropractic treats spinal conditions through advanced techniques that target the damaged tissues involved.
Neck pain can come on suddenly after you sleep in an awkward position, move the wrong way, or pull a muscle. Dr. Wageman addresses neck pain and commonly relieves symptoms within a short period of time. Many times gentle pressure, the right movement, and proper alignment is all that's needed to diminish or eliminate neck pain.
Whiplash occurs in an auto accident but may occur in other injury accidents. When the vehicle accelerates suddenly, as in a rear end accident, and the body is moved backward to forward, it causes muscles to stretch and strain, and creates misaligned joints of the spine. This happens in a matter of milliseconds, but can be effectively treated with modern chiropractic care.
Arthritis can occur in any joint(s) of the body, but most common are spinal joints, including the neck, mid-back, and low-back, as well as hips, knees, hand, and feet. Wageman Chiropractic addresses arthritic conditions with adjustments, soft tissue manipulations, and natural supplements to promote tissue health.
Auto Accident Injuries
When you are injured in an auto accident, many times, chiropractic care can assist in the healing process. Even if you don't have "serious" injuries that require hospitalization, any pain or stiffness you experience should be evaluated to avoid long term damage. We will evaluate your injuries and set up a plan for a series of treatments to realign muscles, joints, and vertebra. Your auto insurance will cover the cost of these visits. It is very important not to ignore the symptoms resulting from auto accident injuries. You will feel much better after your chiropractic care is complete.
Any type of athlete can be injured. Ankle, calf, shoulder, and spinal injuries are most common. Wageman Chiropractic can address most any sports injury through our specialized treatments.
