Chiropractic Care for Kenosha, WI Residents
While Jeranek Family Chiropractor uses many different healing modalities, our work obviously centers around chiropractic care -- and for good reason. Chiropractic adjustments can play a major role in correcting or normalizing every aspect of your health and wellness, from posture and spinal alignment to nerve signaling and systemic function. That's why our chiropractor, Dr. Janet Jeranek, is proud to offer this form of care to Kenosha WI residents just like you and your family.
Principles of Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care was first employed in 1895 by D. D. Palmer, who found that a simple manipulation of a Harvey Lillard’s cervical spine suddenly cured the man's deafness. Although the practice has evolved over the years to include instrument-based techniques, chiropractic care remains true to its name, which means "done by hand," in that manual adjustments remain the most commonly administered form of treatment. A skilled chiropractor can use a combination of palpation, state-of-the-art imaging technologies, and discussions of your health and symptoms to determine exactly how and where an adjustment should be administered.
What do these adjustments do? Their principal task is to correct subtle but significant changes in a joint position known as subluxation, which relieves nerve pressure. A subluxation may occur suddenly, as in an acute injury, such as an auto accident, fall, sports or it may be the end result of months or years of poor posture, degenerative conditions, stress, or overuse syndrome. Subluxation may even be present in newborn infants from the birthing process. When joints are out of alignment, they can't function properly -- and when entire structures such as vertebrae are out of alignment, pinched nerves and disc problems result and you may experience:
- Lower Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Knee Pain
- Jaw Pain
- Poor Posture
- Numbness or tingling in the hands, legs or feet
- Decreased range of motion
- Muscular strain caused by an unbalanced body
- Neurological symptoms such as sharp, achy, sore, stiff pain and pins and needle sensation in the skin
If a misalignment leads to nerve impingement, you may even experience chronic ill health and poor immune response due to faulty communications between brain and body.
Natural Wellness, Pain Management and Injury Treatment From Dr. Janet Jeranek, Our Chiropractor in Kenosha
Our chiropractor in Kenosha WI uses carefully-administered degrees of high-velocity, low-amplitude force to move errant joints and other musculoskeletal structures back into their normal positions. A series of adjustment sessions reinforces this relocation to relieve nerve pressure, muscular strain and joint pain/stiffness -- but you may experience a noticeable improvement in your symptoms after the very first session.
Chiropractic care can treat acute injuries, joint conditions such as osteoarthritis, disc problems, chronic diseases, and many different kinds of pain, from headaches to TMJ. We offer corrective, rehabilitative Chiropractic treatments with other forms of care such as physiotherapy, corrective exercises, traction, whirlpool, muscle therapy, extremity treatments and nutritional counseling to provide holistic or "whole body" healing. Chiropractic care can even be used as a preventative wellness tool. Regular spinal check ups and adjustments can keep your body from aligned that prevents future pain and illness.
