At West Maple Chiropractic & Wellness, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic care to each and every patient. We have included information below about the different chiropractic services offered in our west Omaha chiropractic office, but please call us at 402-934-4650 if you have any questions!
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 chiropractors who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Dr. Taplett and Dr. Moon have years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.
Healthy skeletal muscles are an essential part of keeping you functioning at your best. If you have an injury to an area of your body, we can use kinesiology tape to support the area without taking away mobility like traditional athletic tape would. Kinesiology tape can be used to help with injuries to virtually any area of your body. Kinesiology tape basically works by gently lifting the layers of your skin and attached tissues covering a muscle so that blood and other body fluids can move more freely in around the muscle. This allows for faster healing. It can also be applied to support joints with torn ligaments, such as knees. The use of kinesiology tape has grown rapidly in the past couple years with professional and Olympic athletes using the technology to compete at the highest level possible. Despite its presence and popularity with athletes, 85% of the kinesiology taping applications are designed to be used by normal, everyday people.
Acupuncture / Meridian Therapy
Acupuncture involves the stimulation of specific points on the body. Traditionally, this is done by inserting extremely thin needles through the skin at these specific points. At West Maple Chiropractic & Wellness, we have many different methods of delivering your acupuncture treatment. We can use the traditional needle method, a teishein (needle-less) or a laser. We can also use our fingers to deliver your treatment through acupressure. Acupuncture is used to treat hundreds of conditions including: headaches, migraines, allergies, fibromyalgia, respiratory conditions, pain at various locations and many many more. Both Dr. Taplett and Dr. Moon are trained to provide you with top notch acupuncture therapy in conjunction with your Chiropractic care. Ask them if they think you could benefit from the effects of acupuncture.
At West Maple Chiropractic & Wellness, 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 our chiropractors 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 professionals 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 west Omaha chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!
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. Patrick Taplett or Dr. Scott Moon can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being. In order to help the west Omaha community, we provide screenings at community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today at 402-934-4650 to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
