What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a form health care that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, and the effects of these disorders in general health. Chiropractic care is used often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints including back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of arms or legs, and headaches. Here at our clinic we practice a drug-free, hands-on appraoch to your health that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment.

Dr.Lee is an expert in functional medicine. He will spend time with you, listening to your history and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence your long-term health. Achieving optimal health and wellness naturally often requires correcting physiological, biochemical and neurological imbalances. We employ the following methods in our office to diagnose and support your health and vitality:

    Acupuncture:

At QFMC, we combine the ancient art of Acupuncture and Chiropractic to empower and balance the body to achieve and maintain high quality of life. Every individual is unique so as your body and healing process. We provide individual care that achieves each patient’s full potential and promotes a healthier life.

Dr. Lee believes that combination of Chiropractic and Acupuncture treatment works the best. Over the years, both Chiropractic and Acupuncture have shown their effectiveness in treating different conditions. 

   Biochemical and Neurological Support:

Nutrition is at the core of health. A body that is improperly fueled, or overweight but undernourished, cannot sustain health over the long term. Macro- and micro-nutrients, like proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and enzymes, all affect cellular nutrition; cellular nutrition affects the entire body. Some foods like sugar, alcohol, and refined carbohydrates can actually damage health, especially when taken in excess. Nutritional counseling can help correct all of these problems. We’ve found that nutrition and chiropractic can work hand in hand for a positive effect on your health. The spine influences the way you feel, and nutrition assists you in being healthy from the inside out.

At QFMC, we teach our patients how to perform special exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of chiropractic care and spinal correction plan.

Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a system that evaluates structural, chemical and mental aspects of health using manual muscle testing. When the doctor uses Applied Kinesiology, he finds a muscle that is unbalanced. He then works on the muscle to see why it isn't functioning properly. Afterwards, the doctor works on a treatment to help balance back the patient's muscle.

Cox Decompression Adjustment

This technique is a gentle, non-force procedure which helps the spine heal properly and make sure there won't be any pain in the future. Cox Decompression adjustment treats lower back pain with out any surgery.

Active Release Technique

Active Release Technique (ART) is a patented soft tissue system/ movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. The doctor palpates the body to evaluate the tightness and movement of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.

Trigenics

Trigenics is most commonly used to treat muscular imbalances that may be either the cause or the result of injury or disease. Muscle strength and length testing is used to assess the entire body. Weak muscles are treated to improve strength and short/tight muscles are treated to increase length. However like many chiropractic techniques there appears to be little scientific research into proving the theorized mechanisms are actually what is taking place. Trigenics reportedly combines 3 treatments into 1, which the developers claim leads to an increase in neuro-summation. The treatment is theorized to work by stimulating reciprocal inhibition and the inverse mitotic reflex. Trigenics is used to treat many musculoskeletal conditions such as neck painback paintendonitisshoulder paincarpal tunnel syndrome and many other injuries.
