We are a family practice in natural health care, and we treat people, not symptoms. We use “drug-free”, natural approaches to restore and preserve health. As long-term leaders in personalized medicine, we help patients who have common aches and pains, as well as those with chronic and complex medical histories including headaches, digestive problems, TMJ problems, joint and muscle problems in their spine, hips, knees, and feet, to name just a few.
We provide treatments focused on the cause of your health problems. By evaluating the function of your nervous system, we identify and correct the malfunctions in your body and lifestyle, thus restoring normal function to what was previously causing your complaints. Because our natural treatments restore normal function, they are effective for almost any one at any age. We treat newborns and people in their 90’s and all ages in between.
Below is information on a few of our techniques and how they can help restore and maintain your health!
Applied Kinesiology (AK)
AK is an amazing technique in which the human body becomes the laboratory itself. Manual muscle testing is used along with orthopedic, neurologic, and laboratory tests, to evaluate what is malfunctioning in your body and then match the specific treatment to you.
AK is the original “personalized medicine” and enlists many natural treatment procedures including Chiropractic, Osteopathic, and cranial-sacral corrections, specific diets and nutritional supplements, treatment of acupuncture points, exercise and stress-reduction programs, along with lifestyle guidance, all focused on restoring and maintaining normal function of your body.
Due to Applied Kinesiology’s ability to identify the root cause of so many problems, we are able to resolve many common complaints such as migraines, fatigue, allergies, asthma, digestive problems, hot flashes, low libido, and neck/shoulder/knee/ankle injuries, to name a few. This is an advanced system that helps us address the probable causes of your health complaint by identifying and correcting imbalances in your nervous system, musculo-skeletal system, nutrition intake and biochemistry, and acupuncture energy meridians.
Your feet are the key to healthy biomechanics, good balance, and proper function.
While many patients see us for the foot pain or ankle stability, we treat the feet of most patients to help their balance and coordination, as well as reduce wear and tear on knees, hips and spine.
Additionally, many patients benefit from individually molded and custom-made shoe orthotics, which reduce imbalances in your body stemming from your feet. Correcting these imbalances can help improve conditions such as plantar fasciitis, knee pain, hip pain, back pain, and neck pain.
For most patients with foot problems, many who don’t even know their feet may be causing problems throughout teir body, our orthotics are “user-friendly” and are used many great athletes.
The great myth about chiropractic treatment is that people think it has to do with moving bones around. Chiropractic care is neurologic and focuses on improving the function of the nervous system. Treatment actually stimulates parts of the brain and nervous system, improving all aspects of healthy neurologic, endocrine, and immune function. Common symptoms that are commonly helped range from back and neck pain, shoulder, wrist, knee and foot problems, along with stress-related disorders and other neurologic imbalances.
We perform many “state-of-the-art” gentle chiropractic corrections to align your body and normalize your nervous system. Dr. Miller also uses traditional adjustments, which are safe and highly effective. To learn more you can read Dr. Miller’s blog post about Improper Biomechanics and Disease.
Food Sensitivity Testing
For any chronic health problem, a primary question is, “what is triggering the problem?” So often foods trigger inflammatory reactions in the body, which can occur anywhere depending on previous stress, injury, or genetic predisposition.
Immune system reactions to foods in your diet are commonly linked to chronic health problems such as back pain, headaches, diabetes, arthritis, digestive, hormonal, and skin disorders. We perform ALCATs, which tests your food and chemical sensitivities by measuring immune/inflammatory response in your cells to various foods. More information on this type of testing can be found on the Health Products page (link).
Cold Laser Therapy
A large body of research has shown cold lasers to benefit a wide array of health complaints, such as sports injuries, chronic pain, and post . The stimulation from the cold laser helps increase range of motion while decreasing pain and inflammation. This is a highly researched non-invasive therapy that is used to help promote the healing of tissues through increasing cellular energy production. For more on Cold Laser Therapy, check out Dr. Miller’s blog.
Today’s food supply is depleted of vital nutrients, even if you eat healthy. If you exercise, take medications, have a poor diet, or are under stress your body requires even more of certain nutrients. We offer high quality supplements specifically matched to your needs based on our evaluation and testing. The right supplements can provide your body with the essentials it needs to heal and thrive. For more on supplements, check out Dr. Blaich’s blog.
Evaluation of laboratory tests
Evaluation of laboratory tests, in which our focus is not just to identify diseases, but much more in the realm of “fine-tuning” to help you in attaining optimal function. We use much more stringent criteria in evaluating blood, saliva, and urine tests than does traditional western medicine. We then work to normalize the lifestyle and body function that created the “less-than-optimal” findings.
Emotional components to Health
Dr. Blaich has personally worked with the originators and developers of Thought Field Therapy (TFT) and the Neuro-Emotional Technique (NET), since the early 1980’s and has used these procedures on thousands of patients.
These techniques are profoundly effective and valuable for those who truly want to improve their health and performance on all levels.
