Chiropractic Care Mesa, AZ

Chiropractic Care

When it comes to taking care of patients, some doctors follow a more traditional approach, where the focus centers on finding and eradicating the disease. In contrast, functional medicine is a newer approach that seeks to view patients not as a collection of symptoms, but as a whole person who should be considered in entirety.

When it comes to taking care of patients, some Doctors follow a more traditional approach, where the focus centers on finding and eradicating the disease. In contrast, Mesa chiropractors use functional medicine, a newer approach, that seeks to view patients not as a collection of symptoms, but as a whole person who should be considered in entirety. Our experienced Mesa chiropractors at Aaaah…Wellness are devoted to helping each patient achieve total body wellness and we are standing by to assist you with chiropractic care integrated with functional medicine.

What Is Functional Medicine?
Our Mesa chiropractor will explain that functional medicine is more of a holistic approach, avoiding looking at a patient just in terms of symptoms that have presented themselves. Typically, you will find functional medical practitioners spending more time with patients than those that follow a conventional medical approach.

Our doctors take their time, listening to patients as they detail their medical history. Physicians will function like partners with their patients in setting up a treatment plan, as they figure out the best way to combine chiropractic care with functional medicine. You can regard functional medicine in combination with chiropractic care as adopting a holistic approach.

What Does Functional Medicine Help Treat?
Medical science is more than lab work. To achieve total body wellness, chiropractic adjustments are typically required. Your Mesa chiropractor uses chiropractic technique with functional medicine because of the greater health benefits.

It treats chronic fatigue, chronic muscle pain, and other maladies. Above all, you can say that functional medicine helps treat the entire patient in terms of body, emotions and spiritual contentment.

What Are the Benefits of Using Functional Medicine With Chiropractic Care?
Relying only on chiropractic care and the results of rudimentary lab work when more traditional forms of functional medicine are so readily available would be doing yourself a disservice. Practitioners of this form of total body wellness note that benefits include:

  • The doctor gets a better sense of the total patient by having a detailed conversation before the physical examination.
  • Since functional medicine with chiropractic service is also designed to prevent disease, this cost-effectiveness is a major benefit.
  • You’ll feel more connected with your chiropractor since discussion of your current emotional state is an important component of getting well under functional medicine.

Acupuncture

Some people may be wary of trying acupuncture because they are scared of being stuck with a bunch of needles all over their body. Rest assured, acupuncture is actually a painless and safe way to effectively manage a variety of conditions.

Some people may be wary of trying Mesa Acupuncture because they are scared of being stuck with a bunch of needles all over their body. Rest assured, Mesa Acupuncture is actually a painless and safe way to effectively manage a variety of conditions. Actually, many patients report how relaxing an acupuncture session is. The needles used are extremely thin and flexible, so you’ll only feel slight pressure. Plus, some acupuncture techniques don’t use needles at all! Making an appointment with a reputable acupuncturist, like the doctors at Aaaah… Wellness, in Mesa, Arizona is the first step to managing your chronic pain and symptoms.

What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine technique in which trigger points in the body are stimulated by inserting thin needles into the skin. This encourages energy flow throughout the body and in turn facilitates healing. It’s an effective alternative treatment, allowing some patients to forgo the use of prescription drugs completely. Acupuncturists know where the roughly 350 acupressure points in the body are located, and how to use them to help you feel better.

Conditions Acupuncture Can Treat or Manage
Acupuncture can be used in patients suffering from sports injuries, autoimmune disorders, fibromyalgia, menstrual and menopausal symptoms, infertility, migraines and tension headaches, sinus problems and obesity. It can ease chronic pain, like arthritis, lower back and hip pain, neck and cervical issues and sciatica. Acupuncture can help manage the side effects of chemotherapy, as well as help those with anxiety, depression and stress.

Benefits of Acupuncture
Acupuncture facilitates healing by increasing blood flow and endorphins in specific areas of the body. It can help with circulation, reduce elevated blood pressure and heart rate, boost immune function, balance hormones and decrease IBS symptoms. It can improve mood, increase relaxation and reduce stomachaches. Mesa Acupuncture can also be used as a preventative measure, to ensure continued wellness.

Needle-less Acupuncture
Acupuncture isn’t limited to or reliant on needles to help stimulate trigger points. Techniques like suction or cupping, applying heat, friction or pressure, and using electromagnetic and low-level laser impulses can successfully elicit the same healing effects. These techniques stimulate the meridians of the body, without the poke of a needle.

Nutritional Counseling Mesa, AZ

Nutritional Counseling

Did you know that what (and how much) you eat can have a major impact, not just on your waistline, but also on your physical function, comfort, and well-being? Here at Aaaah…Wellness, “eating for health” is more than just a saying.

Did you know that what (and how much) you eat can have a major impact, not just on your waistline, but also on your physical function, comfort, and well-being? Here at Aaaah…Wellness, “eating for health” is more than just a saying with Mesa Nutritional Counseling. Our Mesa chiropractors offer Mesa Nutritional Counseling that can help you change your entire relationship with food so you can achieve and maintain a healthier life, one bite at a time.

The Value of Nutrition vs. Dieting
Some people equate nutrition with diet, but these terms are actually describing different things. Nutrition involves providing the body with the specific raw materials (nutrients) it needs to sustain its countless daily functions; diet refers to the daily selection of foods you consume, regardless of whether those foods contain the necessary nutrients for health. Good nutrition can have profound benefits on your wellness, including:

  • Lower risk of many dangerous systemic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, and even cancer
  • Healthier blood cholesterol numbers
  • Optimal immune function for better disease resistance
  • Easier, more complete recovery from injuries
  • Reduced inflammation for chronic pain management

Proper nutrition requires a healthy diet. You can eat for health by choosing antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables, lean meats, and whole grains over a diet of fatty, highly-processed foods. These food choices also help fight or prevent obesity — a major factor in many systemic diseases as well as premature joint wear and joint pain. While starvation diets and other dangerous fad diets may shed pounds, they won’t give your body what it needs to be healthy. They’re also not sustainable, meaning that the weight will simply go back on again.

Guidance and Supplementation at Aaaah…Wellness
Aaaah…Wellness can give you a sensible diet and nutrition plan you (and your body) can easily live with for life. Our Mesa chiropractor will evaluate your individual health condition, weight, and current lifestyle to determine exactly what changes you need to make. We will educate you on how to swap out unhealthy food choices with healthy ones, as well as how to consume healthy portions. You’ll learn how to integrate your new eating habits with other wellness essentials such as exercise and lifestyle adjustments to give your health a welcome boost. We can even prescribe supplements to help you get critical nutrients that are hard to derive in sufficient quantities from everyday food options.

Weight Loss

These days it seems as if practically everyone is trying to lose weight — and for good reason. Excess weight and obesity can pose genuine threats to your health and wellness, but so can fad diets and other unwise weight loss techniques.

Zerona Fat Loss Laser – Medically Supervised Weight Loss with our Mesa Chiropractor/ Weight Loss Doctor
These days it seems as if practically everyone is seeing Mesa Weight Loss Doctors and trying to lose weight — and for good reason. Excess weight and obesity can pose genuine threats to your health and wellness, but so can fad diets and other unwise weight loss techniques. That’s why you should bring your weight loss dilemma to Aaaah…Wellness, here our Mesa chiropractor can provide medically-supervised weight loss counseling and programs for a slimmer, healthier life.

Losing Excess Weight Can Improve Your Health, if You Do it Right
Obesity is a serious health epidemic in the U.S., contributing to some 300,000 early deaths each year. Increasingly sedentary lifestyle habits, coupled with the easy availability of fast foods and highly-processed “convenience” foods in stores, have made it easier than ever to pack on too many pounds. The potentially tragic consequences may include heightened risks of:

  • Arthritis and premature wear in weight-bearing joints
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart and cardiovascular disease
  • Kidney, liver, and pancreatic failure
  • Several kinds of cancer
  • Sleep apnea

While losing weight can greatly improve your health, there are right ways and wrong ways to go about it. Fad diets may cause significant and rapid weight loss (much of it in water loss) while also depriving your body of the nutrition and calories it needs, making your health worse instead of better. To add insult to injury, as soon as you end the fad diet your weight goes right back up again.

Weight Loss Counseling and Programs From Our Mesa Chiropractor
Come to Aaaah…Wellness for weight loss done right. Our Mesa chiropractor/ Weight Loss Doctor will start with a detailed evaluation of your current weight and baseline health. We will discuss your weight loss goals and then come up with a solid plan to achieve them. You’ll learn how to take advantage of new eating habits, integrating that new way of eating into a healthy daily routine that may also include exercise, stress reduction, nutritional supplementation, and other wellness essentials.

If you’re still troubled by some pockets of stubborn fat despite your new and improved lifestyle, we can even provide Zerona Fat Loss Laser treatment to sculpt those “rough edges” away. The Zerona fat loss laser is a non-surgical alternative to traditional liposuction. The energy of the laser triggers fat cells to loosen their hold on internal fat stores, allowing the fat to be eliminated naturally.

Auto Accident Injury Mesa, AZ

Auto Accident Injury

Many painful injuries can occur following an auto accident. One common injury is whiplash, which happens when the body is suddenly forced in a forward and backward motion during an auto accident. Accidents involving a car, motorcycle, go kart and even golf cart, can cause whiplash.

Many painful injuries can occur following an auto accident. One common injury is whiplash, which happens when the body is suddenly forced in a forward and backward motion during an auto accident. Accidents involving a car, motorcycle, go kart and even golf cart, can cause whiplash.

The speed in which a car was traveling before the accident, plays an important factor in the severity of the injury. If the car was traveling at a fast speed, the amount of pressure absorbed by the neck will be greater. Even a speed as low as 15 mph can cause whiplash.

Causes of Whiplash and Neck Pain

When whiplash occurs by the sudden jolt and backward then forward motion of a person’s head, the muscles in the neck are overstretched in order to absorb the majority of the pressure. Days to weeks after an auto accident, the abnormal motion and trauma of the head creates pressure on the muscles and tissue making it painful and difficult to move. Usually, these types of injuries are treated with painkillers and anti-inflammatory medications; however, there are ways to treat the pain caused from the injuries without medication or surgery.

How Can We Help with Your Auto Accident Injury?

To help a patient who is suffering from whiplash and neck pain after an auto accident, our Mesa Chiropractor will perform a physical examination and closely examine MRI scans and X-rays to assess the damage. In order for the doctor to measure the pain the patient is experiencing, the patient will need to effectively communicate with them about the pain they have.

Our doctor will assess the pain the patient is having to determine whether it is constant or intermittent. They will also assess what type of pain is occurring such as (burning, stabbing etc.), what is triggering the pain, what time of the day the pain is most likely to occur and the severity of the pain on a 1-10 scale. Our doctor will also, inquire about the patients medication history and any treatments the patient has gone through recently.

Keeping a journal recording of the pain a patient experiences is also a good way to understand the patterns and conditions that occur. The journal entries will help our Mesa Chiropractor have a better understanding of which treatment will be most effective for that patient.

Whiplash doesn’t have to interfere in your every day life! Make an appointment with our Auto Accident Injury Mesa Chiropractor to see which treatment option is best for you and start feeling better!
