Services & Techniques
At Body Mechanics Health & Performance, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Englewood office.
We provide treatment and care to our patients by pure knowledge of the body’s function as a whole. Our approach is to look for any underlying causes of disturbance or disruption and make whatever interventions will help your body function normally and heal on its own.
We’ve seen many athletes from several walks of life including, but not limited to, distance runners, triathletes and CrossFitters. No matter your sport, we’ll help keep your body right, so you can perform pain free.
Injury Specific Rehab
Our approach to chiropractic is strictly from a functional basis. The body is not treated from the point of injury, but what has caused the instability that has led to the injury. Whether you have experienced major trauma or just day-to-day wear and tear, we’ll help your body heal naturally.
Due to the repetitive nature of wear and tear that we put our bodies through on a daily basis, either by means of traumatic injury, sports injury, or repetitive stress of postures like sitting behind the desk and computer for hours on end, Needling has been shown to provide relief for muscular pain and stiffness. In addition, decreasing tension in fascial trains and easing trigger points may improve flexibility and increase range of motion. Needling is a very common method often used to treat a variety of injuries, muscle firing patterns and imbalances, soft tissue adhesion between the fascial track and muscle, repetitive joint and spinal misalignment issues, the list goes on and on. Please give us a call and talk with us about what problems you are feeling and how needling may be of help.
In the office here we use a technique referred as IASTM or Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization, more specifically a technique by RockTape called RockBlading. Eliminating pain such as Knee pain, shoulder pain, back pain (just to name a few as this list is endless) by means of breaking soft tissue adhesion between the muscle and it's interconnected web called fascia and increase rates of the targeted tissues. Specially designed blading tools that have a particular angle to their edge are used to apply longitudinal pressure along the course of tissue. The tools facilitate the doctor's ability to detect altered tissue properties like adhesion and binding, as well as facilitate the patient’s awareness of altered sensations within the treated tissues. Increased vibration within the tool is believed to be an indication of abnormal tissue properties. Additionally, the tools are believed to provide a mechanical advantage that allows the clinician to achieve greater depth of mechanical force transmission than can be produced with hands. Please call us and ask to speak with Dr. Beggs about what problems you are feeling and how blading may be of help.
RockTape Physio Taping
We use physio taping to aid in the treatment and recovery of various sports injuries. It can be used to compress or decompress an area and has numerous benefits, including pain relief and swelling reduction.
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 patient is a whole person, and helping 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? Michael Beggs 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.
