Comprehensive Wellness Services Offered at BAC To Health Chiropractic Lifestyle
At BAC To Health Chiropractic Lifestyle, our team goes beyond conventional medicine by offering services and techniques which can relieve symptoms while at the same time addressing and resolving the underlying causes of your particular dysfunction. Led by Dr. John Sherman, our Brentwood and West Los Angeles chiropractor, we believe in providing quality care in a calm environment that facilitates wellness in both body and mind.
The Benefits of Chiropractic Care Services
Our patients recognize a variety of benefits from coming to see us in West Los Angeles for care. For instance:
- Because our treatments are holistic, drug-free, non-invasive, and completely individualized, our family chiropractic care is safe for your entire household. Dr. Sherman has worked with everyone from infants and toddlers to seniors in their eighties and nineties.
- Research shows that chiropractic care is an effective way to alleviate acute pain, and can drastically reduce the risk of recurring or chronic pain later on. This is particularly beneficial for people dealing with conditions such as whiplash and sciatica.
- With no invasive procedure involved, a recovering patient won't be subjected to prolonged downtime while in our care. A chiropractor can accelerate a person's healing and also advance their recovery to a physical potential beyond where they originally started!
- Chiropractic physicians have a deep understanding of human movement and the way environmental and personal factors interplay and contribute to injury and dysfunction. In this way, patients receive not just relief from their symptoms, but also the empowerment to understand why their symptoms are occurring and what can be done to manage and avoid them.
Common Services and Techniques Provided by Our West Los Angeles Chiropractor
Our West Angeles chiropractor is an area leader in prenatal care, postnatal care, and pediatric care, including treating children that have common childhood conditions such as ADD, ADHD, asthma, and digestive issues. His diverse and extensive career has also allowed him the honor of working with elite professional athletes including hockey players, baseball players, and golfers.
Dr. Sherman's approach works with a patient's body and considers the entire person—not just the condition being treated. He's been recognized for his experience in services such as Applied Kinesiology, the Webster technique, and non-invasive modalities like cold laser therapy. To learn more about the services we offer, we invite you to read through the below samples.
The basic philosophy is that the body will heal itself when the right doors are unlocked through correcting subluxations. Freeing the nervous system without the use of drugs or surgeries enables the body to take command of the healing process and restore you to your full potential.
Applied Kinesiology (AK)
AK is a unique system for evaluating body function by means of muscle tests. This holistic approach addresses a person’s entire triad of health (structure, chemistry, and emotions), rather than just one isolated part.
Learned in advanced educational classes, this specific chiropractic technique facilitates easier and safer deliveries for the mother and baby. Beginning with treatment for the most common complaint, low back pain, women are realizing the additional benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy.
Muscle Testing (MT)
MT reveals which muscles are “on” (facilitated) and which are “off” (inhibited) at any given time. An AK practitioner evaluates how well your muscles are functioning on a deep neurological level.
Deep Tissue Laser Therapy
Laser therapy produces a process called photobiomodulation. This stimulates healing on a cellular level by getting cells to produce energy (ATP) more rapidly. This, in turn, decreases pain, inflammation and breaks up scar tissue.
Energy is the driving force of the body from the tiniest motion of our cells to the electrical impulses running through our nerves and tissues. Our everyday experiences on the physiological, emotional, and intellectual levels consist of the flow of energy that ultimately determines our ability to function. Dr. Sherman uses a variety of techniques to access this system within you.
Our diagnostic services include:
- Digital X-rays
- Nerve Conduction Velocity Testing
- Musculoskeletal Ultrasound
- Vascular Ultrasound
- Blood Chemistry Testing and Analysis
- Saliva Hormone Testing
- Food Allergy/Sensitivity Testing
- Adrenal Function Testing
- Leaky Gut Testing
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them 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 by as much as 30-40%. 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 each patient is a whole person and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborative effort between our professionals and our patients. Our method follows the 5 laws of health: Diet, Rest, Exercise, Alignment and Mental clarity (DREAM).
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patients' return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? BAC To Health can help provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
Spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide wellness screenings at community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
To complement and enhance the healing effects of the Dr.'s specific treatment, we at BAC To Health Chiropractic Lifestyle also provide the following physiological therapeutic procedures:
- Mechanical and intersegmental traction (roller table)
- Myofascial Release Technique
