A chiropractic adjustment is used to restore proper function, motion and alignment to dysfunctional (subluxated) joints. These joints are primarily in the spine although chiropractors can and do adjust feet, ankles, knees, hips, shoulders, elbows, wrists, jaws, and hands as needed. Here at True Health Family Chiropractic, Dr. Braglia’s focus is on specificity. Finding the subluxation (misalignment) is paramount to chiropractic; it is the difference between helping someone’s body function better or just pushing on stuff and making noise.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patients’ return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? At True Health Family Chiropractic, we only recommend whole food supplements, as they naturally contain all of the vitamins, minerals and co-factors necessary because the plant itself required and absorbed these nutrients in exactly this way for its own good health. They are the safest, most effective, most beneficial sources of vitamins and minerals.
We realize that extra weight on your body adds to additional stresses on your spine. This additional weight makes you biomechanically more susceptible to injury and greater risk for health problems. Starting a weight loss program under the supervision of a healthcare professional has a greater likelihood of long-term success. Ask us about our Purification Program, which helps your body purify and rebuild itself from the inside out. The program gives you a structured plan for cleansing and detoxification and in turn helps to maintain a healthy body and weight.
Chiropractors are experts at analyzing posture and how it relates to spinal problems. We often find it helpful to “coach” our patients on certain activities they should do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. A doctor of chiropractic searches for the problems that exist underneath poor posture and its effect on daily activities. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each patient is a whole person, and helping them reach True Health and wellness is a collaborative effort between our patients and us.
By analyzing spinal curvatures and alignment, Dr. Braglia searches for the problems that contribute to the postural pattern and develops a strategy of correction. 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%. 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.
