Dr. Erik started with an idea to challenge his kids to exercise before they sat down to watch any TV this summer. In a discussion with the guys in his Bible study, he found out the idea had already been on the popular TV show “Shark Tank” as the FitDeck – available at www.fitdeck.com. We cannot sell this idea to you, but we can offer our version of it to you for free.

There are many different chiropractic ancillary services that our team offers in order to manage your pain. Some of the most frequently used methods for dealing with emergency pain include:
Electrical Muscle Stimulation – This treatment creates electric impulses to help elicit muscle contraction. It has been shown to help with symptoms of pain, tension, stiffness and muscle weakness. It can be set up to target specific muscles and problem areas, delivering safe yet effective treatment to one or more areas. This treatment option can be used for acute pain with each treatment lasting between 10-15 minutes, depending on the area and severity of the injury.
Exercise – There are many chiropractic therapy options which focus on developing a specially designed exercise program which is tailored to an individual’s unique needs and situations. These customized routines are designed to focus mostly on stretching and strengthening the back or other areas of the body which have suffered an acute injury. When the muscles are strong and well worked, it is harder for the spine to slip out of alignment and muscle aches and injuries become less common. Our highly qualified staff will work with you to determine the appropriate exercises to get you through the pain and back to your normal daily life.
Massage – Emergency chiropractic services in Greeley cover a wide range of treatments, but working to massage the soft tissues that are in the area of the back, neck, and shoulders can go a long way in delivering immediate relief from pain and discomfort. Chiropractic adjustments and massage can greatly improve circulation, ease pain and tightness, reduce swelling, lower the severity of inflammation, loosen and relax muscles and promote overall healing.More
