Intrinsic Wellness is not your typical chiropractic office. Most chiropractic visits last 5 minutes or less and consist of a quick adjustment, well that is not the case here! Your local West New York, NJ and Westwood, NJ proudly believes that each care plan should be custom tailored to the needs of that patient. Whether its with chiropractic, physical therapy, or acupuncture, the Intrinsic Team is here to help.
Our doctors pride themselves on creating quality treatment plans that address every aspect of the patient’s complaint. Our care plans start with getting you out of pain and smoothly transition you into wellness care to maintain results. Here is a brief description of some of the services we offer here at Intrinsic Wellness.
The adjustment is what chiropractic is best known for, but did you know chiropractors are trained to adjust your extremities (shoulders, elbows, wrists, fingers, hips, knees, ankles toes)? Whether it is in your spine or another joint, a chiropractic adjustment increases the joint’s range of motion, as well as decreases pain causing pressure! There’s no reason to live in pain!
Some people do not tolerate the stereotypical adjustment; this is why our office offers a wide variety of low force techniques. Our Westwood and West New York (WNY) chiropractors utilize a wide-variety of techniques including Activator, Blair Upper Cervical, SOT, Drop Table, Manual Flexion, and Distraction. If you are hesitant to try chiropractic or have had a negative experience, we invite you to call our office to see if we can offer you a different style of care.
Many of our patients present to the office for treatment of injuries related to poor posture and chronic stress. If we only adjust the spine, we are not addressing the real cause of the problem. When poor posture is allowed to persist, certain muscles become hypertonic (overworked) where other muscles become hypotonic (weak).
Our Westwood and West New York (WNY) physical therapists are trained to provide their patients with rehabilitative exercises to help restore proper muscle function and length. Physiotherapy is an important part of decreasing pain and the chance of having a re-occurring injury.
Massage and soft-tissue treatments are essential for breaking the cycle of chronic pain. When a patient has an injury, their soft-tissues (muscles, ligaments, tendons) must take on an increased workload to help support the area. This causes muscles to spasm and for the soft-tissues to change texture.
At Intrinsic Wellness, our Westwood and West New York (WNY) massage therapists are trained to address the soft-tissue component of your injury with various massage techniques including, Percussion, Instrument Assisted Soft-Tissue, Pin and Stretch, and Manual Adhesion Release.
Our office proudly offers Kinesio taping for all of our patients. Kinesio taping has been proven to have a wide variety of uses including, posture correction, removal of inflammation and edema, as well as providing support to joints to decrease healing time.
Our office has found that many of our patients are in a state of chronic inflammation due to their diet. What you put into your mouths directly impacts your ability to heal and will change how you feel. Our office will assist you with any of your nutritional supplementation concerns and prescribe anything we may feel can help the healing process!
