Dr. Marco Bouchard has studied multiple chiropractic techniques that enable him to be able to handle a wide range of problems. He primarily uses a specific chiropractic technique called Gonstead and combines this with Clear Institute spinal correction protocols. Its principles are based on biomechanics and physics. Furthermore, he utilizes extremity adjusting protocols for problems in the wrist, ankles, knees, elbow etc. Dr. Marco enjoys treating newborns all the way up to people in their 90’s. All new patients first have a consultation, then a physical exam to determine the cause of the problem and finally can order imaging like XRays if necessary. Once all the information is compiled, then he will explain the cause of the problem along with treatment options.
A few of the benefits
BACK PAIN RELIEF
While most people might reach for the over-the-counter pain medications to deal with their back pain, there’s another way of dealing with that pain that can be just as effective: chiropractic care. Back pain chiropractic care is one of the safest, most effective methods for the treatment of lower back pain.
NECK PAIN RELIEF
One study involving chiropractic patients with neck pain found that 96 percent of respondents indicated that they were either “Very satisfied” or “Satisfied” with the chiropractic care they received, and that 98 percent said that they “Definitely would” or were “Very likely” to choose chiropractic care again if they experienced a similar problem.
LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE
In 2007, George Bakris, the world expert on hypertension, published a study with a team of researchers in the Human Journal of Hypertension showing that one upper cervical chiropractic adjustment had the same effect as two blood pressure-lowering drugs. Even more fascinating, the effects of just one adjustment lasted more than six months!
Whether you suffer from migraines or tension headaches, chiropractic care may be the answer. More than 230 peer-reviewed articles have been published referencing how chiropractic treatment can help to cure and prevent headaches and migraines.
PROPER ORGAN FUNCTIONING
The value of a Chiropractic adjustment far exceeds the limits imposed by someone pursuing back and neck pain relief. The spine maintains an intimate connection with the central nervous system. The function of every organ within the body runs directly through the oversight of the central nervous system
Chiropractic has long been heralded by natural health care providers as a natural method to prevent back surgery. In fact, the Journal of the American Medical Association just recently published its low back pain guidelines and suggested that people suffering from back pain first try chiropractic before resorting to surgery.
