At Improve Health Chiropractic, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic care to each and every patient. We have included information below about the different chiropractic services offered in our Manasquan chiropractic office, but please call us at 866-807-8686 if you have any questions!
Strictly speaking, a chiropractor provides an alternative medicine that uses spinal and other joint manipulation to correct alignment problems that are causing pain.
At my office I am dedicated to providing a holistic approach to your complete health and wellbeing. I can incorporate lifestyle or diet suggestions and often will advise you to perform specific exercises or relaxation techniques to aid in your improvement.
The hands-on aspect of chiropractic includes manipulation of the spine or other joints. Each treatment is personalized to meet your specific needs, and could include electrical stimulation, heat, or ice. At the beginning of our relationship, I will take a complete medical history and perform a physical examination to determine what course is right for you. This may include lab tests or imaging to get a complete understanding of your condition.
My career in chiropractic is inspired by the belief that there are ways to improve pain and discomfort without resorting to surgery and drugs. I see the results of my efforts every day, as my patients are able to return to their activities and enjoy life again.
So for the best in the NYC area in drug- and surgery-free care of your back pain, sciatica, headaches, or other conditions, call my office for an appointment today.
Physical therapy is a large part of my practice because I am dedicated to helping patients return to their pursuits and enjoy life again.
Through physical therapy, I can help patients move better to enable them to handle everyday tasks with greater ease and improve their pain management. Many of my patients are post-surgical, while others have ongoing medical conditions, including back pain, spinal stenosis, or arthritis, and need ongoing therapy to keep muscles, tendons, joints, and ligaments limber.
With physical therapy, I can help patients regain the use of limbs to walk, go up and down stairs, get in and out of bed, or stand up from a chair. This is pain management in pursuit of normalcy.
I understand the frustrations and feelings of depression that pain limitations can bring, so I work tirelessly to improve your abilities. My goal is the same as yours – to get you back to enjoying life.
Contact me at my office in NYC, make an appointment for a consultation, and get started on the road back to living life.
At Improve Health Chiropractic, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our Manasquan chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
Massage has been used for centuries to give comfort and provide pleasure-filled peacefulness. At my practice, I use massage for its proven healthful benefits.
Massage, as I practice it, will help with circulation, which brings nutrients and oxygen to the cells. It also relieves stress, reduces muscle tension and stiffness, heightens mobility and flexibility, and helps rid the body of wastes, such as lactic acid, which can contribute to pain.
Used alone or in conjunction with my physical therapy and chiropractic methods, massage is a viable technique to helping patients who suffer pain to feel relief and get back to living a more normal life.
Let me help you regain your freedom from pain and stress with massage therapy. If you are located in the New York City area, contact my office for an appointment.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your spinal health is no exception. Posture and spinal screenings by a trained and experienced chiropractor such as Dr Michelle Bouchard can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being. In order to help the Manasquan community, we provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today at 866-807-8686 to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
