There are over 70,000 licensed chiropractors working in the United States today. Chiropractors must go through four-year doctorate programs to earn their certificate of Chiropractic and state license. Yet, with that said, the questions persist: Does Chiropractic Care Work?
Chiropractic Care at Tannenbaum Chiropractic DOES work and let me tell you why!
The most important factor in the usefulness of chiropractic care is not the nature of chiropractic as a profession, but the skill, knowledge and experience of the chiropractor who is treating you!
Our staff believes that every part of the body is connected, every bone, every muscle, every sensory impulse our body has is connected to both protect and heal the body. This office is unique, in that it offers Chiropractic Care, Acupuncture and Massage therapy where our specialist work together to provide complete body therapy to our patients. You are an individual here, not an insurance number that we must hurry to treat or are only allowed to treat a certain way.
Most people only plan a visit to a chiropractor when they are in pain or after an accident or injury. Often, we see cases where a lawyer or insurance agent sent them to a chiropractor whose idea of treatment was a 30 minute on a massage bed and one or two adjustments a month for the required 3 to 5-month treatment approved by the insurance or lawyer. This example is true across the whole insurance based medical industry; just look at the difference between having an individual doctor you know by name or visiting a place like Kaiser.
That is never the case at Tannenbaum Chiropractic. Each treatment is centered around your ailments. We take the time to explain our process, how the body will heal and develop a plan which caters to your healing needs.
EACH VISIT IS UNIQUE & EACH PERSON IS UNIQUE!
You may remember old television shows or movies where there was a home town doctor who cared and knew his patients. These doctors not only had knowledge and experience to help their patients, but they also knew their patients personally and earned their patients trust through personalized care.
This hometown philosophy is the main reason why Tannenbaum Chiropractic has been Beverly Hills preferred Doctor of Chiropractic care for over 25 years. There are hundreds of chiropractic methods, hundreds of ways to treat pain through acupuncture and hundreds of ways to incorporate massage therapy into the healing process. When dealing with holistic healing, your body requires a team of professionals that have all these tools at their disposal.
Which is why we say each visit is unique. Each visit starts with a conversation, a thorough a check up and a planned treatment; whether that be an adjustment to realign the spine or relieve inflammation; targeted acupuncture; massage therapy either prior to an adjustment to make the adjustment more effective or after to help hold the adjustment. Your treatment is as different and customized as you are.
Treating MORE than just your average Chiropractic Care office!
Abel – NO surgery please!
Abel had been in multiple car accidents over a three-year period of which he had very little movement and range in his neck. His insurance company had sent him to see physical therapist and doctors for his pain; but those treatments stopped after the case was settled. He had visited his insurance-based chiropractor, but they were unable to adjust his neck and eventually surgery was recommended by his medical doctor.
We recognized that tightness and inflammation in his neck and back area and, unlike other chiropractors, we did not attempt to adjust his neck right away. Inflammation is your bodies way of attempting to stabilize an injured area. It is the bodies Catch-22, as the body creates an organic cast by compressing an injured body part to heal it and at the same time preventing movement; but this swelling really hearts.
In this case, we first provided a few weeks of heat, massage, acupuncture physical therapy, chiropractic muscle manipulation and when we saw enough movement in the neck and neck muscles for an adjustment, Dr. Tannenbaum adjusted his neck. AND it was epic; it was one of the loudest adjustments heard in the office. For the first time in three years Abel was able to move his neck side to side and with continued treatment he DID NOT require surgery but was also able to regain most of his pre-accident movement without pain.
Isiaih – Softball Ankle Injury
Isiaih and his wife had been patients of Dr. Tannenbaum and his staff for over a year. Isiaih initially came in with lower back pain which we were able to treat. He liked to play sports and during a softball tournament severely sprained his ankle sliding into third base. He went to his doctor and received regular medical treatment for his ankle. A year had passed, but Isiaih still had a limp and as he said, “it just didn’t heal right”.
Through X-rays and an exam, we were able to recognize that though he wore a brace for a while; his heal, feet and hips had adjusted to compensate his gimpy foot which in turn was causing his lower back pain and making it difficult for his foot to heal correctly. We started treating the is lower back and hip; as well physical therapy on his ankle through acupuncture and musculoskeletal adjustments to his foot. After a few weeks of treatment Isiaih lost his limp and was as he said, “almost like he got a new foot”.
(Disclaimer: Though that attached picture is a picture of Dr. T adjusting Santa Claus’ ankle, we didn’t have a picture of Isiaih; but same concept without the Santa hat and wacky facial expression)
Lisa – A Bundle of Joy
Lisa, like many new families, was trying to have a baby but was not finding success. She had read that studies showed that the infertility culprit is a combination of ovulation dysfunction, fallopian tube problems or other pelvic and hormonal problems. She had begun treatment for lower back problem and mentioned this to Dr. Tannenbaum during a therapy session.
Dr. Tannenbaum discussed research studies in which patients were studied that issues of infertility. Dr. Tannenbaum went on to explain how the chiropractic adjustment specifically affects reproductive health. He described how spinal movement contributes to the proper flow of cerebrospinal fluid. Restrictions of spinal movement may impact the hypothalamus and/or pituitary gland. These glands are responsible for reproducing hormones such as follicle-stimulating hormone which are vital to reproductive function.
He added that the vertebral subluxation of the spine has far reaching effects on numerous glands and organs that directly contribute to a healthy reproductive system…..
..BUT for Lisa the results meant more to her than anything!
