We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Dr. Renee (Daul) Maigatter has years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief, prevent injuries and achieve total health or wellness.
Fascial Movement Taping
Fascial Movement Taping (FMT) does exactly what it says, it tapes movements, not muscles. RockTape brand of kinesiology tape is made to stretch and stick. This allows people to wear it longer and during more intense activity where sweating would normally cause other tape to come off. The stretch also acts to pull the skin up, allowing more blood flow to the tissue underneath which accelerates healing and recovery. RockTape is effective for rehabilitation, edema/swelling management, neuropathic pain, scar mobility, and postural management. Advanced taping methods may be used to increase athletic performance by improving movement and function. For more information, check out the RockTape website at http://rocktape.com/products/tape/
At Horizon Chiropractic Center, 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 Dr. Renee 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 professional 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 clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
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. Renee (Daul) Maigatter can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being. In order to help Manitowoc, Two Rivers and the surrounding communities, we provide screenings at community events, health fairs and places of employment.
