Treatment of your Pain:
Dr. Allen Unruh is a Chiropractic Physician trained in biomechanical assessment of spinal function. Forty six hundred miles of nerves exit the brain through the spinal cord to control the function of every muscle and organ and all the systems of the body. Your body is like a gigantic circuit board. Any interference in nerve function from misalignment or muscle dysfunction can have a dramatic negative effect on a person's quality of life. Our initial goal is to eliminate pain, inflammation and swelling. As you improve follow up care is designed to improve motion to injured areas and muscle function to prevent permanent injury and impairment. At the A. Unruh Chiropractic clinic we offer several effective treatment procedures to decrease pain and reach maximum recovery. Higher powered laser therapy decreases pain and inflammation. Rehabilitation to improve strength, flexibility and endurance to the injured areas. Vax-D spinal decompression for more severe disc injuries and sciatic nerve pain or failed back surgery. There is no relationship to vehicle damage and injury to the patient. Everything depends on the susceptibility of the patient to injury. Dynamic motion x-ray is the latest state of the art diagnostic equipment to assess ligament damage that can lead to permanent impairment. If you have been in an auto accident it is important to get examined by someone trained in spinal trauma.
Dr. Unruh believes it's just as important to treat the patient that has the pain and disease as the disease that has the patient. We modify our therapy to what's wrong with the patient, not the patient to the therapy. Every pain syndrome is different. We utilize the latest technology with high powered laser therapy for nerve and joint pain. Laser therapy is energy medicine. This light energy is at a wave length that penetrates into every muscle and joint, and recharges muscle, and/or nerve cells that have been damaged. It dilates capillary blood supply to damaged nerves. Every cell in your body has 1000's of mitochondria. Mitochondria are the powerhouse in every cell. They manufacture ATP for energy, cell division, cell metabolism, protein synthesis and oxygenation of the cells.
