Indianapolis Chiropractor Provides Comprehensive Services
We at Dr. David Bax Injury & Rehabilitation Centers in Indianapolis have spent years forming a team that can help patients with virtually any of the healing methods needed for good health, injury rehabilitation, or the restoration of good health. Our Indianapolis chiropractor, Dr. Bax, offers chiropractic care at our two locations: The South Indianapolis office on Stop 11 Road and the West office on Eagle Creek Parkway.
Therapies Include Chiropractic, Physical Therapy
Chiropractic care is designed to lightly manipulate your spine into its ideal position. Since a spine that is improperly aligned can cause disc problems, joint problems, physical pain, and health issues that affect the whole body, spinal health is essential for overall well-being. We treat painful conditions such as varied as fibromyalgia, sciatica, and carpal tunnel with great success every day.
Some patients may find that a standard spinal adjustment is more than they actually need for their particular problem, and it is for that reason that our office offers gentle adjustments with a small tool known as an Accustim.
The Accustim tool is able to isolate very specific segments of the spine, and then use this pin-point accuracy to make minute adjustments that can have a big impact on mobility. The Accustim delivers between 12 and 14 tiny non-painful thrusts per second. These tiny thrusts have been shown to have remarkable results in patients seeking improved range of motion.
We offer cold laser therapy as a complementary therapy, or as a stand-alone therapy, depending upon the patient needs. The laser machine is a tiny device that packs a lot of healing power. The job of this laser is to encourage cell mitochondria to heal. Cells will naturally regenerate themselves given time, but the cold laser dramatically hastens that healing. This allows for relief from muscle pain, joint trouble, sore back and neck, and arthritis.
Part of our whole health concept here at our Indianapolis chiropractor is nutrition help. We offer healthy eating counseling to our patients because we know that good nutrition will tie in together will all the therapies we offer here. A properly fueled body is better able to accept treatment and is far better able to retain good health for many years into the future.
We may prescribe some physical therapy treatments to help improve body strength and function. These exercises often go right along with good food choices, and together they will lead to a body that may be healthier than patients could have even hoped for when they came here for the initial consultation.
Our chiropractor and our staff strongly believe in our total patient wellness philosophy. We encourage patients with any physical ailments such as fibromyalgia, sciatica, back pain, neck pain, auto injury trauma, headaches, carpal tunnel, PMS, pregnancy, slipped disc, scoliosis -- or nearly any physical pain problem -- to call us for a consultation at 317-291-7246.
We would be happy to custom design a therapy plan just for you. We will accept nothing short of whole body wellness for our clients!
At Dr. David Bax, D.C., Inc., we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Indianapolis office.
We provide spinal corrections utilizing gentle chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, David Bax has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
Throughout one’s pregnancy, there may be pain and/or discomfort in the back and neck due to the ligaments and joints loosening up. Utilize chiropractic care to help realign your spinal cord and the ligaments and muscles that surround it to lessen pain and promote health throughout your pregnancy and during birth.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently so that they don’t aggravate their particular health challenge. We also provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patients return to optimal health. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle. David Bax can provide a structured lifestyle and/or nutritional program based on your individual needs. We recognize that each patient is a whole person, and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborative effort between our professionals and our patients.
Cold Laser Therapy -
We utilize cold laser therapy to help aid in tissue repair and relief from pain and inflammation. Cold laser therapy uses low wavelengths of light targeted towards your body’s tissue to alleviate pain caused by injury or aging and accelerate the healing process.
Muscle stimulation therapy, or e-Stim, is a therapeutic treatment that applies electrical stimulation to treat pain and muscle spasms. At Dr. David Bax, D.C., Inc. we use this therapy to help build strength and prevent atrophy in patients with muscle injuries.
Myofascial Release -
We offer an alternative medicine therapy called myofascial release that is used for treating skeletal muscle immobility and pain. Myofascial release therapy is a hands-on treatment that utilizes gentle, sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to relax contracted muscles, improve blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulates the stretch reflex in muscles.
Spinal Decompression -
At Dr. David Bax, D.C., Inc. we use non surgical spinal decompression to help treat back or neck pain, sciatica, bulging or herniated discs, worn spinal joints, and injured or diseased spinal nerve roots. Spinal decompression gently stretches the spine to change the force and position of the spine. By making this change, pressure is removed from the spinal discs and bulging or herniated discs may retract.
Therapeutic Massage -
Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
Therapeutic Ultrasound -
Therapeutic ultrasound uses sound waves above the range of human hearing to interact with tissues in the body that are either modified or destroyed. It creates a deep heat and increases the blood flow to the area being treated to help reduce local swelling and chronic inflammation.
Trigger Point Therapy -
The use of massage for trigger point therapy on a regular basis can help naturally manage pain and stress from chronic injuries. Pressure is applied to a trigger point long enough to release and relax the muscle. This increases blood flow to the muscle to allow normalization and bring it back to a health state.
