Along with specialized chiropractic treatment, Michaelene Callahan, DC and the team at Axis Chiropractic Center will
provide you with rehabilitation exercises, advice on posture and stress management and nutritional advice. The most important
aspect of chiropractic care is the comprehensive approach to treatment and management of a patient’s unique condition.
Activities can exert a tremendous amount of stress
on the spinal column and joints. Dr. Callahan works
with amateur through professional athletes for
optimal health to prevent injury. Unfortunately
injuries occur, but with chiropractic for sports injuries,
clients regain strength and avoid chronic issues.
Pregnancy & Pediatric Chiropractic
Michaelene Callahan, DC of Axis Chiropractic offers chiropractic care for expecting mothers. When your
body goes through the various stages and trials of pregnancy and labor, your spine is subjected to extreme
amounts of stress. After all, it has to constantly adjust itself to bear the growing weight of another person
over a short time frame of just nine months. The center of gravity shifts forward and substantial weight gain
adds stress to the spine of the expecting mother. This stress frequently causes lower back pain, headaches
and migraines, nausea, insomnia, and other symptoms that can wreak havoc on your quality of life.
Children particularly need pediatric chiropractic care as they age because a lot of the problems
we experience as adults actually come from our childhood – either because we fell (think about
how many times a day a baby falls when they are learning to walk, sometimes 10-20 times
per day), broke something or simply had poor posture (which is extremely common today).
Dr. Callahan utilizes a combination of chiropractic care
along with other non-invasive alternative health therapies.
These include acupressure therapy, cold laser therapy,
chiropractic adjustments, physiotherapy and more.
Acupressure therapy is an alternative medicine technique that is similar to acupuncture but without the
use of needles. It is based on the concept of life energy which flows through the body. During the treatment,
pressure is applied to acupuncture points with the aim of clearing blockages of the flow of energy throughout the body.
Pressure is applied by Dr. Callahan with her hands or elbows. As these acupressure points are stimulated, muscular
tension releases, circulation of blood is promoted, and the body’s life force energy is enhanced to aid in healing.
Axis Chiropractic Center utilizes the latest in technology to provide patients with safe & effective alternative health
care options. The laser at our clinic allows Dr. Callahan to treat patients non-invasively with low level laser light.
