Services & Techniques
At Angelic Wellness, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Winter Haven office.
The technique used at Angelic Chiropractic & Health Services, Inc. is called Sacro Occipital Technique, or SOT. This is considered a full-body technique in which we adjust the entire spine, extremities, organs and cranium. What the doctor adjusts is determined by neurological indicators found on your body. In other words, you have tight, swollen, or tender spots that tell us what needs to be worked on. When the proper adjustment is applied, you will have an instant decrease or elimination of that painful indicator. Eliminate all the indicators, and you eliminate the health problems.
SOT is one of the oldest chiropractic techniques and is based on the research of Dr. Major DeJarnette. It has stood the test of time with outstanding, lasting results. Dr. Bernice is considered an expert in this technique.
The joints in your arms and legs can go out of alignment just as easily as your spine. Many people come to us with a diagnosis of bursitis, tendonitis, or arthritis. That simply means that the bursa (a fluid sac), the tendon, or a joint are inflamed. The cause of the inflammation is usually a joint that is not moving correctly. An adjustment of the offending area can frequently alleviate the problem quickly.
Craniopathy is a specialized chiropractic technique that moves the cranial bones. Your head is made up of several plate-like bones that in case your brain (80% of your nervous system). When these bones are out of alignment, they pull on the membrane that surrounds your brain causing dysfunction. Craniopathy is amazingly effective on treating headaches, TMJ problems, trigeminal neuralgia, general facial pains, low back pain, and paralysis.
Chiropractic Manipulative Reflex Technique or CMRT is the stimulation or relaxation of the different organ systems. SOT trained chiropractors treat the entire body and do organ adjustments such as manually pump lungs and livers and lift dropped kidneys and bladders. These are time honored chiropractic techniques that in years gone by were referred to as bloodless surgery. Your body heals itself if it is aware of a problem. CMRT makes the body aware of the problem so the healing process can begin. Frequently, a dysfunctioning organ will need nutritional or herbal support. At Angelic Chiropractic & Health Services, we will also help determine the nutritional and lifestyle needs of your body.
Homeopathy & Cell Salts
Is an old form of medical treatment that is seeing a lot of new interest. It is based on the theory that if something can cause symptoms, they can cure them also. It is also very individualized. An example of and an acute case is the common cold; one person might have a runny nose, another my be feverish, and a third might be coughing and sneezing. Each has a cold, but each is expressing it differently and each would require a different homeopathic remedy. Constitutional remedy work is done with more serious or chronic health issues and requires approximately a 2 hour interview and a great deal of research to determine the correct remedy. In the end, it is so worth it.
Cold laser is light or photon energy with the unique property of being able to penetrate up to two inches below the skin surface causing an increase in cellular metabolism and healing. Cold laser is being used to treat a variety of painful and inflamed conditions of the soft tissues and joints such as carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, back pain and sports injuries. Angelic Chiropractic is in the forefront successfully using cold laser to reestablish neurological pathways after nerve damage such as strokes and brain injuries.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises 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. 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 our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
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? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Dr. Bernice or Dr. Rosman can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
