At East Valley Family Healthcare, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. We offer Comprehensive Chiropractic Care, Corrective Exercises, Massage Therapy, Cold Laser Therapy, Physiotherapy, Frequency Specific Microcurrent and much more. Below is a sampling of the different services we offer.
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. McFarlane has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
We use various different physiotherapy modalities of which the most common are Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) and Ultrasound. EMS works by passing an electrical current through the muscles to stimulate contractions. It will break the cycle of constant muscle contraction as well as block pain signals to the brain by overstimulating the nerves. Ultrasound works by causing microscopic vibrations in the muscle tissue that breaks up adhesions and works out inflammation.
Microcurrent treatment using specific tissue related frequencies have been shown to provide great relief from certain conditions. The conditions treated by Dr. McFarlane in this office are Shingles, Menstrual Cramps, Kidney Stone Pain and Fibromyalgia. Oftentimes this treatment will relieve pain that has not responded to other methods.
