mBrace Chiropractic & Orthotics

Total Care for Everyone

Our primary goal is to work with you to help you achieve your most Remarkable Life.  Our approach is very whole and looks not only at the musculoskeletal aspects of your life but at the core requirements that your body needs to achieve its optimum function.  We have been able to fill the GAP…it’s ALL connected.

With our background in biomechanics, functional movement and neurology as well as understanding of dysfunctional movement patterns (pathomechanics); we take a very unique approach to discovering the reason and helping you correct it and begin to reinforce new patterns.

Reinforcing new patterns allows better communication with our brain and can increase its capacity to create further change. Initially you may attend our Practice to get Relief.  Our Practice is set up to provide stages of Corrective and Integrative Care and further Maintenance Care when needed.

With the ability to provide a wide variety of custom made and modified orthotic and orthopaedic devices to support you, we are able to complete your Remarkable Life requirements.


Chiropractic

Our chiropractic treatment plan is divided into three distinct phases:

Phase 1: Relief

Pain oftentimes is our brain’s last attempt at getting us to pay attention to what is going on. This first phase is about reducing the pain and symptoms so that messages sent to the brain are no longer a concern. Pain may be the first thing that disappears after you come to see us, but often the underlying cause may be still present.

Phase 2: Correction/Integration

In order to prevent a rapid recurrence of symptoms, it is necessary to continue receiving care even though your symptoms are gone. During the correction / restorative phase of your care, you will not have to receive adjustments as often as you did during the first phase of care and, depending on your particular circumstances, you may be completing you program clinic or at home to help accelerate your healing. This phase of care may last anywhere from a few months to a couple of years.

Phase 3: Maintenance

Once your body has fully healed, routine chiropractic care can help ensure that your physical problems do not return, and keep your body in optimal condition. It is necessary to continue chiropractic care to ensure the health of your musculoskeletal system. When you make regular chiropractic care a part of your lifestyle, you will not only avoid many of the aches and pains that so many people suffer, but your joints will also last longer and you will be able to engage in more of the activities you love. Many people report a greater sense of general wellbeing and more energy when they receive regular chiropractic adjustments.
