At Activated Life Chiro 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 Great Falls office.
Chiropractic Adjustment with Activator & Network Spinal
Activator is an instrument assisted way of adjusting the vertebrae and extremities. Activator is a high speed, low force instrument. Dr. Stilson uses a protocol of leg-length analysis and neurological challenges (called isolation tests) to determine where to adjust and where not to adjust. https://www.activator.com/ondemand/patient-orientation-video/
Network Spinal is a tonal technique that uses very light contact over specific areas of the spine to promote a respiratory wave throughout the spine to ease spinal cord tension patterns. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQvLCUThR7A
Stress Reduction with Neuro Emotional Technique
Have stress? This is a evidence based technique that addresses the natural stress response of the body. Sometimes the natural neuropeptides (special proteins that make up the stress hormones) get into the tissues and become trapped there. Using a manual muscle test and a series of questions we can address that "stuck" stress response.
Myofascial Release with Trauma Relief Therapy
The myofascial layer is just beneath the skin and encloses the muscles. This tissue is highly innervated and when trauma occurs the fascial layer becomes distorted. By rearranging the fascia we can address the trauma and help the body to heal.
We provide spinal correction utilizing gentle chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Justin Stilson has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
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 patient is a whole person, and helping 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 patient´s 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. Justin Stilson can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
Fascia is the connective tissue that surrounds the muscles and is just beneath the skin. The fascia system is highly innervated or has many nerves. When trauma occurs, this could be car accidents, tripping, getting hit with something, and many more things, the fascia can become distorted. Rearranging the fascia can help to relieve pain and repattern the fascia so that is not pulling on connecting areas.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We can provide you with a postural scan to help so that the chiropractor and yourself can evaluate where the tension patterns are occurring in your nervous system.
