How You Can Benefit from Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral therapy uses gentle pressure on the bones of the head, spine and pelvis to increase the flow of cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) to help cure a number of ailments. This fluid acts as a cushion for the cortex of your brain while also providing basic mechanical and immunological protection. Through your treatment your body will normalize, become more balanced, and will become rid of blockages (obstructions) in various systems throughout the body. Once these blockages are removed, the body can function in a healthy manner allowing your system to rest, rejuvenate and heal.

Dr. Whaite uses this therapy to help relieve headaches; neck and back pain; problems with the temporomandibular joint (TMJ); chronic fatigue; poor coordination; eye problems; depression; hyperactivity; attention deficit disorder; problems with the central nervous system, the immune system, lymphatic and the endocrine system; and many other conditions. Craniosacral treatments are safe, non-invasive and deeply relaxing.

Take Advantage of Our Neuromuscular Specialties

Neuromuscular therapy is a specific soft tissue treatment aimed to alleviate tender spots located in your muscles and connective tissue. These points are referred to as Trigger Points, and often cause pain, weakness, limited motion of your joints and can refer pain to areas outside of its origin. In fact, it’s very common for these points to simulate migraines, tension headaches, shoulder injuries, lower back pain, knee injuries, jaw pain and much more. If Dr. Whaite determines a Trigger Point is the cause of your pain, she can easily treat them and help you avoid major surgeries that would have been unsuccessful in alleviating your pain. Trigger Points are extremely common and can arise from numerous causes ranging from trauma, poor nutrition, poor posture, overworked muscles, repetitive strain and even dehydration.

Life Changing, Therapeutic Nutritional Counselling

Dr. Whaite offers life-changing nutritional education to any and all of her patients that are craving a healthier and more vibrant life. Take a moment to ask yourself how it would feel to have abundant energy, a faster metabolism, stable moods and an overall positive mentality. Let us help you choose the right foods to eat in balance to produce vitality from the inside out. We invite you to visit our office and discover a plan that will meet your physical, mental and emotional needs.

“The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest the patient in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.” -Thomas Edison

What To Expect

Dr. Whaite’s goal is to relieve her patient’s symptoms as fast as possible while addressing the underlying origin with as few treatments as necessary.

Your first visit will begin with a physical examination. This is where Dr. Whaite will learn how your joints, muscles and nerves are functioning, both individually and collectively. Neurological and orthopedic tests also may be conducted to help determine a diagnosis. She may also check your blood pressure, listen to your heart and lungs or examine your abdomen for a complete evaluation of your physical health.

After the physical exam each patient will be educated about what Dr. Whaite found in your examination and she will explain your individualized treatment plan. You will begin treatment that day which will include your chiropractic adjustment and may also consist of soft tissue therapy, physiotherapy and nutritional advice. In addition, instructions for home therapy are frequently provided, as to help to expedite the healing process. Your plan may include advice on postural correction, exercises and stretches, sleeping position or other wellness techniques.

Similar to other medical practice, like dental and optometry, most patients opt to continue with regular chiropractic check ups. Their interest in wellness and prevention helps ensure once they get well, they stay well.
