We specialize in modern, natural, and gentle chiropractic care approaches. Even though chiropractic care has been around for a long time, we focus on staying well trained in the latest approaches.
Chiropractic care started with a focus on spine health. Helping alignment, spine stress, nerve pressure, and proper function are all fundamental benefits of chiropractic care. And chiropractic care has repeatedly been shown to lead in cost effectiveness, results, and patient satisfaction compared to physical therapy and traditional medical approaches. Chiropractic care is great for better spine health, injury care, back and neck pain, disc herniations, disc degeneration, posture and alignment, and better overall health.
There is a wide range of chiropractic and manual medicine therapies for the spine. The providers at ProActive Spine Care have been well trained in multitude of chiropractic care strategies too customize the best care for each person we see. We feel that is the best way to help our Tacoma, Fircrest, and University place communities. We aim to provide leading edge chiropractic care in our area.
Some problems are more complicated than others, and every body is different. For example, treatment for a young athlete is different that treatment for a 90-year-old senior. That is one reason you should look for a chiropractor who is well trained in a wide range of approaches.
We are trained in a spectrum of traditional chiropractic approaches like spinal manipulation (Gonstead, Diversified, mobilization, Activator, drop-table, etc), manual therapies (myofascial release, Active Release, PNF, taping and bracing, trigger point release, muscle energy, etc), functional care (spinal stabilization, balance and proprioception training, reconditioning stretching and exercise, etc), and a wide range of supportive care (orthotics, modalities and physical agents, cold laser, traction, non-surgical decompression. KinesioTape, etc).
The great news is that chiropractic care sone't stop with spine care. Modern chiropractic care focuses on the entire musculoskeletal system (i.e., knees, hips, shoulders, TMJ, feet, carpal tunnel syndrome) and better overall health and wellness.
We help patients with knee joint arthritis, hip arthritis, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff tendonitis, tennis elbow, headaches. Our training includes dedicated orthopedic education, neurology education, injury and whiplash trauma training, disability and impairment training, and functional and rehabilitation care.
Over the years, our patients have come to rely on us for front line care of general muscle and joint problems. A 2012 insurance study of nearly 16,000,000 musculoskeletal cases found that the best first place to seek care for any muscle or joint problem was with a chiropractor.
Of course, proper care always begins with thorough examination and proper diagnosis. We review your history, evaluate your complaints or injuries, conduct a thorough examination, and order and evaluate special tests like Xray, MRI, CT scans, etc. We also coordinate any necessary testing along the way.
Modern chiropractic care also focuses on coordinating your care and health needs with other providers. We have a strong network of referral sources including general medical specialists (orthopedists, neurologists, physiatrists, etc), as well as alternative care providers (massage therapists, acupuncturists, nutritionists, etc.)
Our goal is to help you with great advice, great care, and great resources, and that includes opening alternative avenues when indicated.
Chiropractic care has been shown to provide benefits including natural care of muscles, joints, ligaments; improve neurological function; assist normal brain health and function; reduce pain; promote circulation; promote joint health; reduce injuries; and help general well being. People receiving chiropractic care have been shown to use invasive medical care less often, require fewer medications, reduce unnecessary surgeries and injections, and use less costly diagnostic testing and less effective therapy.
It is not uncommon for chiropractic patients to report they sleep better, are more active, feel generally better, have more energy, are sick less often, or are able to reduce medication use.
