The practice of chiropractic medicine continues to advance and evolve. Never before have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that we can today. At Draeger Chiropractic & Laser Center in Antigo, we are trained in many different manipulation techniques including: Diversified, Thompson Drop, Gonstead, Activator, Cox Flexion/Distraction, manipulation under anesthesia, and others. Many of the newest techniques are actually safer, more effective, and more comfortable than ever before.
We focus on treating 5 systems of your body: muscles, bones, ligaments, nerves, and joints to achieve a higher level of wellness. What’s more, our adjustments encompass you as a whole person, treating both the affected areas and the structures of your body that support the affected area. This leads to better results for our patients.
Some types of back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by misuse of your muscles. We’ll teach you how to perform exercises that will strengthen your body and help to correct the irregularities that cause pain. By doing these targeted, corrective exercises and stretches, you play an active role in your care, will feel better sooner, and can improve the effectiveness of your care plan.
Many patients come in for treatment for a specific symptom, injury, or type of pain. While we provide care for your specific issue, we will also provide advice to help you live a healthier lifestyle. It can be as simple as teaching you a better sleeping position or how to minimize the chance of re-injury during daily activities. Some patients are seeking more comprehensive guidance for better eating habits and lifestyle changes - we can help with that too. Don’t worry, we won’t ever try to push anything on you. It’s about getting to know you as a person and as a patient and providing the level of care that best fits you and your wellness goals.
You know the saying, “you are what you eat.” The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their bodies, and that includes looking at what we put into our bodies. Do you know how your food choices are affecting your overall health? Which vitamins and supplements are right for you? How do various vitamins and supplements interact with each other? We are specially trained in nutritional counseling and can provide recommendations for healthy food choices and nutritional supplements. The level of counseling that we provide is completely up to you, from simple suggestions to a written nutritional plan.
In addition to these traditional chiropractic services, we offer many other services including: High Intensity Laser Therapy, spinal decompression, Neuropathy ReBuilder,TM Therapy, manipulation under anesthesia, dry hydrotherapy, massage therapy, and we provide workplace services to surrounding businesses.
