Treating Knee Pain with Chiropractic

Each year we have hundreds of patients mention knee pain or come in specifically after a knee injury. Chiropractic treats all the joints in the body and not just the back, so we have treatment that can alleviate pain and accelerate healing for knee pain and knee injuries.

Examining the Nerves Surrounding the Knee

One of the first things that we’ll do is look at how the nerves are firing and functioning with our scanning tool. The nerves control the energy to the knee area, which affects the rehabilitation to the knee area.

The Knee is Interconnected

We’ll also look if the hip and ankle joints are moving correctly, as they affect each other from the ankle up to knee down. If those joints are limited, such as rotation in the hip, the knee will be affected and prone to pain or re injury.

Treating Knee Range of Motion

In addition to adjusting the back, hips, and ankles that are contributing to the knee pain, we use our adjustment instrument to work on the range of motion. The instrument taps 12 times per second and when used on restricted tissue, it will work through to regain a normal range of motion.

Thanks for your interest to learn more about our Centennial Colorado clinic and the health and wellness services that we offer. We treat a lot of professional, amateur and youth athletes. Everyone from babies to 95, which is our oldest patient. Please join us for a tour by Dr Kambeitz of our clinic facilities as he explains them and treatments available.

8 Weeks to Wellness wall

When people come in we show them our 8 weeks to wellness wall. This is the pinnacle of what we do in our clinic here. We do blood work, pre- and post pictures, check range of motion, so it is a pretty good functional assessment of what is going on in their body. Now with over five years we have had over eighty people go through the program. And we can honestly say that everyone gets success through the program when they follow these principles. That’s a big part of our clinic here.

Massage Therapy Bay

We do myotherapy in our therapy bay area. We also do AIS – active isolated stretching, where we do stretching, improve range of motion, and enhance overall function. We also have two different massage rooms in here, so we have different types of massages offered in here and two different massage rooms.

Gym Facilities

In the gym we have a lot of functional modalities to increase function for participants, from seasoned athletes to first time personal training clients. It’s a great non-intimidating gym.

Supplements and Accessory Store

We have a variety of nutritional supplements and other products that we personally use and recommend including fish oil, vitamin D, CoQ10, and  different supplements. The Ultrameal shake powder is used for snacks in our 8 weeks to wellness program.

Chiropractic Changing Rooms

When patients come in they will get a number 1-6, indicating which dressing room they will enter prior to their adjustment. They will leave their personal belongings in there including belts and contents of their pockets. When they’re done with their adjustment they can gather their belongings and use the mirror to make sure they’re ready for the rest of their day.

Exam Room

The exam room is where we will do exams visual x-rays, and a scan to see how their muscle and nervous system are functioning. We will do a BIA which measures body fat percentage, their phase angle, (which tells us cellular health), and how hydrated their bodies are. We also offer foot levelers orthotics if a patient needs custom orthotic inserts.

Chiropractic Adjustment Rooms

We have two different adjustment rooms. We can accommodate patients their choice of a manual adjustment or an instrument adjustment.  The instrument adjustment is a nice option for patients who have never been adjusted and don’t know what to expect. The instrument also helps us work through a patient’s range of motion in a joint that has restricted movement. Other patients may have experience with manual adjustments, where the doctor uses their hands and adjustment tables to get the proper adjustment.  Our adjustment rooms allow us to accommodate either technique or a mix of both.

Laser Therapy Room

We have a class four laser and we an erchonia cold laser. Laser therapy is great for treating chronic problems, and acute injuries. The laser works down to the cellular level and helps regenerate the cells and get an affected joint or muscle group moving better. It helps accelerate the healing process when used along with other modalities we offer.

Evaluating and Treating Shoulder Pain with Chiropractic

The shoulder joint is a freely moving joint which makes it susceptible to certain injuries.

At our Centennial Colorado chiropractic clinic, we treat patients young and old, including athletes, who are experiencing shoulder pain.

As an alternative form of medicine we take a different approach than some other medicine professionals when treating shoulder pain.

The Initial Evaluation of Shoulder Pain

We use our spinal scanning device to measure muscle tension, which direction the muscles are pulling, and if there is heat and inflammation present with the shoulder injury.

We also evaluate x-rays to see how the nerves are functioning and firing.  As you age, the disc space between your vertebrae shrinks and impedes the nerves’ ability to function and fire correctly.

How the Shoulder Joint Works

The nerve controls the joint’s function, mobility, and muscles.

We evaluate the location where the shoulder pain, as well as adjoining structures, including the shoulder joint, collar bone and shoulder blade.  We will focus beyond the area of pain from the spine to the structures adjoining the shoulder.

Most patients with shoulder pain will have a limited range of motion as they stand straight and rotate their neck to look over their shoulder. A full range of motion allows you to look directly over your shoulder.  Most people only have half of that range of motion as they look in either direction.

When your range of motion from your neck impeded, the nerves from your spine cannot fire correctly through the shoulder and arm.

Treating Shoulder Pain with our Computerized Instrument Adjustment

We have a computerized instrument adjustment that delivers 12 gentle oscillating taps per second, available at the clinic to treat various conditions including shoulder pain, by improving the range of motion so that nerves can fire correctly.  Our chiropractors will place the instrument on the cervical spinal column, as well as the muscles that surround the shoulder, and lead you through the full range of motion of the shoulder while the instrument gently taps. The chiropractor will lead you through the full range of shoulder motion including internal and external rotation, abduction, flexion and extension.

Most patients need a few treatments to their treat shoulder pain, as each treatment progressively decreases muscle tension, range of motion improves, and nerves begin to fire correctly again, and ultimately decreasing pain.

Patient Testimonial: Liz Leonard

It is with pleasure and gratitude that I share my comments on my experience with 8 Weeks to Wellness.  After turning 50, I found it increasingly difficult to lose weight and everything I tried just wouldn’t work.  I felt aches, pains, and fatigues more than I ever had in my life.  I was lost and felt there was no hope.  But, after coming to Dr. Kambeitz with my son one day, I discovered this miracle program that changed my life.  I saw a light at the end of the tunnel and decided I needed to put my own health and wellbeing at the top of my priorities.

My experience was incredible.  The program is the best program out there because it incorporates the mind, body, and soul.  You are taught how to eat correctly, make good choices to change your bad habits, and take care of YOU as a whole.  Dr. Kambeitz and his staff are unbelievable.  They support you in every way.  You get adjustments, myothereapy, and laser treatments twice a week along with a 1-hour massage every 4 weeks.  All my aches and pains diminished within a few weeks and I felt better than I had in years.  The program also gives you two days a week of personal training so you learn the proper form and increase your strength and endurance.  The trainers are knowledgeable and highly educated and do a great job of keeping you safe, yet push you to your full potential.

The program also requires you to log your food, sleep and water intake.  Which is so important in your individual success.  You also reflect and meditate which has been huge for me being that I am always going 100 miles an hour.  It makes you stop, look, and listen.  Meditation was hard at fist but it walks you through how to do it and now has become part of my daily routine.  The Metagenics shakes and protein bars are wonderful and help to keep me satisfied and stop any cravings I get (Bonus! They taste delicious). I highly recommend the Ultra Calm chocolate coconut bars aka Almond Joys!

I can’t tell you enough how life-changing this program has been for me! If you are ready to commit and make a change, this is the program for you.  It will not only help you look and feel 10 years younger, but it will fulfill every other need you have to come the healthiest you’ve ever felt.  Dr. Kambeitz and his staff do a tremendous job in supporting you in every aspect and truly want you to succeed.  They are unlike any other group of people that promote a product: they care and they give you 100% of what you pay for in this program.  On a scale from 1-10 I would give them a 20 in customer satisfaction! I love it so much that I have continued to do the program in a second phase.  I went from a wellness score of an F to a B in 8 weeks and now I am going for an A+.  I am confident they will help me get there.  Thank you, Kambeitz Chiropractic Health and Wellness Center! I am so glad I discovered you!

Kicking off the 8WW Challenge!

We are excited to have kicked off our very first 8WW Team Challenge at Kambeitz Chiropractic Health and Wellness Center.  We have two teams competing to lose the most weight and increase their team’s average wellness score.

Krissy, Liz, Dr Brittany Gentile, Monica, and Rochelle are excited to get started on the Challenge!

Our teams are:

Team 1

Stats

Total weight:1778.1 lbs

Average Wellness Score: 72.4

  • Monica (Team Leader)
  • Angela
  • Krissy
  • Liz
  • Flora
  • Rochelle
  • Ann
  • Jocelyn
  • Tina

Total weight:1198.6

Average Wellness Score: 72

  • Jim (Team Leader)
  • Stu
  • Steve
  • Jon
  • Tracy
  • Karolyn

The participants of each team will complete the 8 weeks to wellness program which consists of:

  • Weekly workouts with our on-site personal trainers
  • Conforming to the 8WW meal plans which concentrates on proper nutrition with the correct balance of healthy proteins, fats, and low-glycemic carbohydrates. Each participant will journal what they eat for their three meals and two shakes per day, building better eating habits and meal planning. The journals are reviewed during nutritional consults with the doctors, to discuss questions about the diet and how to adjust diets for participants to reach their wellness goals.
  • Chiropractic adjustments, massages, and AIS sessions to help their body function properly, recover from the stresses of working out, prevent injuries, and in the end feel better.
  • Practicing meditation, a practice that helps participants release emotional stress, and maintain mental clarity.

The challenge is unique because there are three team workouts to get out of the gym and exercise outside.  These events will be at Red Rocks, the Manitou Springs incline, and an obstacle course workout at a local park.

The challenge participants will go through the same wellness evaluations of other 8 weeks to wellness participants.  This includes a wellness examination that includes pre and post-program bloodwork, BMI calculation, body fat percentage calculation, posture number, core strength and flexibility evaluation, to determine their Wellness Score.  Learn more about the Wellness Score here.

The team challenge will ignite the competitors in each of us to lose weight, improve individual wellness scores, and to have fun while becoming healthier.

How to Measure Health and What is a Wellness Score?

It is getting to the point in the US that we all need a sickness care doctor, i.e. your primary care doctor, and a wellness care doctor, i.e. US!  And the more you go to the wellness care doctor the less you’ll need the sickness care doctor.  So how do we, as your wellness doctors, measure your wellness.  You can’t simply say it’s when you feel good because we all know someone who felt fine one day and dropped dead the next of a heart attack; or the women who felt fine today but was diagnosed with breast cancer the next. Lack of symptoms or feeling good is no way to measure wellness!

We measure wellness by what we call your WELLNESS SCORE.  This is a scoring system that was developed and can track and measure your physiology and function.  It actually gives you a grade, A thru F.  We measure what we call biomarkers of health.  When we do a wellness score on you we look at numerous biomarkers of health.  On the back of this article is a sample wellness score and below is a description some of the biomarkers we measure.

BODY MASS INDEX:  It’s a height and weight chart.  Yours needs to be below 30 and if it isn’t you have exponentially increased your risk factor for the 3 biggest killers of Americans, heart disease, cancer and obesity related conditions such as diabetes.

POSTURE NUMBER:  You live your life thru your nervous system and your posture tell us exactly what it going on with your spine and nerve system.  We take a digital photo and you from the front and side.  A picture is worth a 1000 words.

CORE STRENGTH AND FLEXIBILITY:  We’ll measure 8 different ways to test your strength and flexibility of your core muscles.  We sit too much and it’s taking its toll on our bodies.

BODY FAT %:  The single best determiner of how well we age is how fat we get.  Even if the scale isn’t changing, often our body composition is changing.  And since one pound of muscle burns 3 times as many calories as one pound of fat, yet takes up half the space on your body, knowing your percentage of body fat is crucial to knowing how WELL you are.

In the 8ww program we also have the patient do a comprehensive blood panel to check Triglycerides, Cholesterol, C-Reactive Protein, fasting glucose, HbA1c levels, Homocysteine levels, Insulin levels and vitamin D levels.

All of these factors are incorporated into the wellness score.
