Adjustments are given to joints throughout the body as indicated. A patient with back pain may have their back adjusted and also their knee and ankle. Dr Wright believes in a Holistic approach. By seeing the body as a WHOLE and not its individual parts meaningful change can be made to the way the body works. Adjustments are given strictly by hand, sometimes with assistance of a table drop mechanism. Adjustments can also be made with an instrument upon request.
One of Dr Wright’s mentors taught him to know 6 ways to adjust every joint in the body. There surely is an adjustment specifically for you.
Nutrition is one of the main aspects which creates optimal health. When proper nutrition is paired with chiropractic care, the effects of both are exponentially more profound. This is because the body can utilize nutrients that are put in the body more effectively, due to enhanced nervous system function and therefore organ function. We are here to provide nutritional support and supplementation as a baseline for all our patients. We are also available for any extensive nutritional counseling needs as well.
Standard Process Supplements
Proper nutrition plays a vital role in wellness, and that is why nutritional counseling and supplements are an important part of many chiropractic treatment plans. It is also why we are now offering Standard Process supplements to chiropractic patients. These award-winning nutritional supplements are produced according to the strictest quality standards. Standard Process manufacturers a complete range of vitamin and supplement products to meet the nutritional needs of any patient.
Chiropractic care is not just for adults. In fact, more and more parents are seeing the many benefits of their children seeing a chiropractor every single day. Some of the benefits are improved sleep, improved behavior and attitude, and improved immune system function. Children encounter many physical stresses in their life that you may not realize. These stresses can cause your child’s spine to have issues in growth and development.
Here at Pivotal Health Systems, we offer a conservative approach to treating pregnant women. Our prenatal care is gentle and safe. We aim to alleviate the stress and strains of pregnancy while improving comfort for both the mother and baby. We understand the physical changes that come with pregnancy, and we offer relief without using any drugs.
Whole Food Supplementation
Dr Wright pulls from his knowledge in Applied Kinesiology and Nutrition Response Testing to identify underlying nutritional deficiencies and organ dysfunctions. Health Care Professional Grade Supplements are sold here at Pivotal Health Systems to our patients. Some are chew-able tablets, others are pills to be swallowed, and others are liquid tinctures.
Once your body has the minerals, vitamins, and other nutrients necessary it will heal and not a minute sooner.
Herbal supplementation is sometimes indicated for chronic health issues. Dr Wright works with over a dozen suppliers of herbal supplements to ensure he has the right herbs available to aid you in your pursuit of better health.
In an effort to be effective and efficient, Dr Wright uses a complex and thorough muscle testing procedure to ensure your body “agrees” with the supplements recommended.
Manual Muscle Work
Muscular imbalances throughout the body can be affected through skillful use of the doctor’s hands. This work includes
- Tuning up and tuning down muscles to create balance around joints.
- Specific massage-like pressures given at certain reflex points to improve the flow of lymph fluid and blood flow and also to reduce tension on fascia (the web like substance that connects all of our joints and muscles together.)
Dr Wright works diligently with his patients in developing a lifestyle that is an asset to their pursuit of better health.
What type of exercise program is right for me?
What can I do to ensure a quality nights rest?
What toxic chemicals should I be avoiding?
The answers to these questions can vary from person to person. Making effective Lifestyle Changes is best done with the help of a physician who understands how your body works and what it needs to be at its best
We are not only what we eat but what we are able to digest. Changes therefore need to be made not just to what we eat but how we eat it. Patients of Dr Wright will have exclusive coaching on improvements to their diet that will aid in the achievement of their health goals. This process includes identifying which foods to avoid, which foods to enjoy, and how to best schedule your meals throughout the day.
Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a form of diagnosis using muscle testing to examine how a person’s body is functioning. When properly applied, the outcome of an AK diagnosis will assist in determining the best form of therapy for the patient. Since AK draws together the core elements of many complementary therapies ( N: Bioneurologic and Biomechanical, NL: Neurolymphatic, NV: Neurovascular, CSF: Crainosacral Therapy and AMC: Acupuncture Meridians), it provides a Chiropractic, as well as a functional and interdisciplinary approach to health care for all ages.
What is an AK examination?
During a functional evaluation, muscle tests and other techniques such as Therapy Localization (TL), are used to monitor the physiologic response to a physical or chemical (for example nutritional) stimulus. The observed response is correlated with clinical history and physical exam findings. along with as indicated, any laboratory, imaging tests and other appropriate standard diagnostic methods. Applied Kinesiology procedures are not intended to be used as a single method of diagnosis. Applied Kinesiology examination should enhance standard diagnosis, not replace it.
