Oasis Chiropractic takes great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients.

Chiropractic Care

We are very proud to provide advanced spinal correction utilizing “state of the art” equipment and techniques.  Advances that now exist allow us to provide the highest level of help and expertise.

integrator activator

We adjust a large variety of people from premature babies to adults over 96 years old. Different people like to be adjusted differently. Some people are like football players and like to be adjusted physically, while others require lighter and gentler adjustments. Some people can be adjusted by hand or if they prefer, we can find a different technique that may be better suited for them.

Some patients like to be adjusted by an instrument. Since there are not any turning or twisting and the joints do not make any noise, many children like getting adjusted with one of our instruments. People who do not like the popping noise associated with chiropractic also love getting adjusted with one of our two adjustment tools shown in the picture on the left.

The activator and integrator which Dr. Eckdahl shows on the video are hand held adjusting instruments with a small loaded spring which delivers a light, low force yet fast thrust for a corrective impulse. The thrust is very accurate, focused, and so quick that the body doesn’t have time to resist.

Check out the video below where Dr. Megan Eckdahl explains her techniques at Oasis:

We also use a variety of manual techniques and have a variety of different tables available. We are proud of our Gonsted equipment. You can see this in the video the green table and chair connected. 

We also have a table called a Hi – Low table.  This table allows us to lower a patient down from a standing position to get them adjusted and then the special spring loaded table slowly and gently brings them back to a standing position. You can see this at the end of the video and how we can lower the patient down and up. 

Dr. Megan Adjusting ChildChiropractic Care Offers Your Family A Solid Foundation For Wellness.

We offer lifestyle choices starting with prenatal care and following up throughout childhood for benefits of your child’s greater health and well-being.

For pregnant ladies we have unique cushions and pillows available to give the appropriate protection padding and support needed.

Many individuals like the features of a drop table.  There is a section that lifts and then drops back to where it started. The advantage of this table is that the chiropractic doctor is able to use the momentum of the table stopping to establish the bone back in to location.

 

computer scanThe largest perk that we provide at Oasis Chiropractic care is performing assessments and screenings to figure out if your treatment is functioning and improving your spine. We monitor your spine via complete spinal column x-rays and a state-of-the-art computer scan to actually picture improvement. Each color represents differing amounts of nerve interference.

Thermal Scan

The picture on the left is the thermal scan. The thermal scan detects abnormal spinal function which doesn’t show up in an x-ray. First you put on a gown and then sit calmly for a few minutes. We place 2 probes going down your back from your skull. The computer does everything else. The thermal scan is non-invasive and measures temperature differences from side to side ( should be equal on both sides) of inflammation and blood flow of your automatic nervous system along your spine which controls your circulatory system, glands and organs. White is normal and when we see color it shows there is a problem. Our patients get a computerized printout like the example shown to the left. Nerve interference that is cause by misalignment of the spine is represented by different colors. This scan allows our care to start with an accurate diagnosis based on the actual condition of your nervous system which you may not even be aware of. We explain to each patient if there are areas of nerve disturbance detected and what would be the personalized care needed to improve their muscle’s regular nerve function. Comparing scans over time is an excellent way to document and monitor treatment results. Patients may take the printout of their scan home with them to explain their care needed to their family and as time goes on; their family can also see and understand the outcome of their results.

There are 3 types of stress: chemical, physical and mental. We can evaluate each type of stress. The thermal scan is explained above and this video also explains the EMG which measures electrical activity and shows how your nervous system is functioning.

X-rays

We take X-rays before we start treatment and follow with more x-rays as the patient progresses. The picture on the right shows an example of a healthy normal spine on a x-ray. Here at Oasis we take advanced imaging and digital x-rays of your spine to make sure there is no underlying problem. 

 

 

Corrective Workouts

Each client is educated on their own special physical “blueprint” workout created simply for them to help build up and remedy their own special problem. These physical exercises can be executed in the comfort of your very own home and can improve the efficiency of your spine correction by as much as 30-40 %. Skeletal imbalance, connective tissue, and muscles can be out of place or strained by improper positioning and usage. Your special “blueprint” will give you specific workouts and stretches that can assist your physical body to remain in harmony and in health.

Personalized Orthotics
We offer custom orthotics. Our lab can make you custom orthotics from a mold we take of your foot.

Kinesio taping on bodyKinesio Taping

Kinesio taping is used for common sports injuries such as, runners knee, shin splints, hamstring strain, shoulder injuries & many more. It helps decrease inflammation while giving support and stability to your joints and muscles without affecting circulation and range of motion.

Lifestyle Guidance

We “coach” our patients on specific activities or different ways needed to prevent or improve particular health problems. Our target is to assist every person in finding a happy way of living with their daily physical tasks and those they take pleasure in. We recognize that each of our patients is unique and to help them reach true wellness solutions we collaborate ideas between our professionals and our clients.

Nutritional Counseling

We offer particular recommendations on dietary supplements and healthy meals selections to boost our patient ´s return to superior wellness. Do you understand which vitamins and supplements are good for you? We could give an organized dietary program based on your individual requirements. We recommend 2 specific supplements for nearly all people: Omega 3 fish oil and Probiotics. Since many people are extremely deficient with symptoms such as:  frequent colds, lack of physical endurance, fatigue, brittle hair and nails, depression, dry or itchy skin, depression, constipation, and joint pain. We usually recommend these for our patients to have a good immune and nervous systems.

Spinal & Postural Screenings
