Laser Light Therapy – It’s time to Treat your Feet

Man's bare feet with shoes and rolled up jeans in view

Do your feet ache at the end of the day?  Then maybe it’s time to look at your shoes and see where there’s room for improvement.  Repetitive wear of narrow shoes and high heels over time can lead to bunions.  Bunions can be painful due to swelling and can take the joy out of sandal season. Don’t cover your feet another day!  With a specific bunion protocol the laser is here to make a noticeable difference.

Did you know that the cold laser can help with toe nail fungus?  After trying numerous creams and topical treatments to get rid of stubborn fungus, the solution has finally arrived: cold laser!

Erchonia cold laser

Plantar Fasciitis is inflammation in the bottom of the foot’s connective tissue.  This can be caused by tightness, a tear and or strains to the ligament connecting to the heel.  The Erchonia (cold laser) just received FDA clearance based on a series of studies showing the effectiveness of laser treatment on Plantar Fasciitis.  Erchonia is the only company with low-level lasers that were market cleared by the FDA for a variety of issues (acne also being one of them).

Low level laser works at the cellular level to rejuvenate cells and help you heal faster.  Do you want to learn more and see how laser therapy can help you?

Health benefits of Yoga

three yoga poses We’re pleased to offer yoga three days a week at the gym at Kambeitz Chiropractic Health and Wellness Center PC. Our yoga instructor, and massage therapist, Michelle Gorny explained some of the benefits of yoga for those who are interested in yoga for health and wellness. 

  • Prevents cartilage and joint breakdown by taking your joints through their full range of motion, even into areas that aren’t used in daily activities. This keeps the joint capsule and cartilage healthy and wards off degeneration.
  • Nourishes your spine through the use of backbends, forward bends, and twists. Disks get their nutrients through these types of movements to stay supple.
  • Builds bone mass. It’s pretty common knowledge that poses like downward dog and upward dog help protect against osteoporosis. But did you know that yoga’s ability to lower stress also lowers your levels of cortisol, which can help keep calcium in your bones?
  • Regulates blood pressure. Just by simply watching your breath, you blood pressure drops.
  • Increases your attention span. Yoga trains your brain with the focus shifted to the sensations you’re feeling in the poses, enhancing your ability to focus outside of class.
  • Decreases built-up tension in limbs. Ever notice how hard you’re gripping the steering wheel, or clenching your jaw for no apparent reason? Practicing yoga brings your awareness to these areas of held tension and allows them to melt.
  • Room to breathe. The breathing techniques taught in yoga help you fully engage your lungs. This allows you to breath in more air, with fewer breath cycles, making your lungs more efficient in delivering oxygen to your tissues.
  • Soothes IBS and other digestive problems. The calming effects of yoga allow the body to focus on digesting your food.
  • Boosts inner strength. Yoga philosophy includes building the resilience to overcome old habits by trying new things. This branch is called ‘tapas,’ Sanskrit for ‘heat.’ Think of it as lighting a fire under your tush to get up and do something!
  • Encourages self care. We are used to the passive care we experience through conventional medicine. Practicing yoga requires you get involved in caring for your own body. No one is going to hold your body in the poses for you! You begin to make the connection that your commitment to moving makes you feel better. You are able to take a huge part in healing your body.

Our yoga classes are 1-2pm every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  Our classes are non intimidating and welcome never-ever, beginner, and experienced yogis.

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.
