Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is about making your body operate as efficiently as possible for you, depending on what your lifestyle and goals are. For example, a competitive athlete may have different goals than an office worker. We’ll provide you with the drug-free care you want but also the tools you need to be proactive about your health.

Natural Help for an Array of Conditions

At Empire Health and Wellness, Dr. Shannon isn’t your typical chiropractor. Most people think of a cracking, popping, forceful chiropractic adjustment when they think of seeing a chiropractor. Dr. Shannon’s approach focuses heavily on soft tissue work, stretching and activating your muscles to relieve issues such as

  • Achilles/ankle/foot problems
  • Breathing issues
  • Breech pregnancy
  • Core/pelvic floor dysfunction
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Hip and hip flexor problems
  • Lower back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Pregnancy-related pain
  • Scar tissue
  • Sciatica
  • Shoulder issues
  • Sinus issues
  • Stability problems
  • TMJ

Many Techniques to Address Your Full Body Needs

The benefits of chiropractic that our patients report include decreased pain and tension, an increased range of motion, and an enhancement of their mind and body awareness. With Dr. Shannon’s techniques, you won’t have the typical twisting and popping that you associate with chiropractors.

The most popular technique she uses is NeuroKinetic Therapy® that includes Active Release, soft tissue releases and Graston, if necessary. Dr. Shannon uses NKT to get to the root of muscular pain and tightness, whether it’s chronic or acute. She then works with the brain’s motor control center to alleviate it.

Though Dr. Shannon primarily utilizes soft tissue work, she adjusts when necessary, which includes instrument-assisted methods. The Hypervolt massage gun may also be advised, along with trigger point work. Other therapies that Dr. Shannon offers include cupping, decompression and Kinesio taping.

If an adjustment is necessary, Dr. Shannon doesn’t need to be forceful and instead uses a high-velocity touch to produce the changes we want to see.
