Natural Healthcare for the Eugene and Springfield Area
By reflexive action from nerve stimulation, acupuncture helps to relax muscle spasm, reduce inflammation, and thereby control pain. Mr. Greenleaf improves upon traditional acupuncture by applying micro-current impulses to the needles, increasing stimulation of nerve endings at the acupuncture points.
Impulses with precision frequencies also act locally on affected tissues, increasing activity within the cells to promote healing. This is completely different from the temporary pain management of TENS.
Joint deviation is typically the root cause of spine and joint pain, as well as muscle spasm and pinched nerves. This deviation may be due to postural habits in standing, sitting, or sleeping, or from trauma or strain in sports, work, or auto accidents.
With gentle stretches and carefully chosen postural corrections, we can reduce deviations to resolve the problem at its cause.
We have developed an approach with customized exercise routines for the individual patient. It aims at restoring balance to the joint structure and muscle tone, for long-lasting reduction of inflammation and pain.
Consisting of simple positions and movements, it is very gentle and easy to perform. For later stages of treatment, we also offer exercises to increase strength and stability.
This is often a cause of weakness in the joints, muscles, and connective tissues. Nutritional supplements are available which are specifically formulated for this type of problem. Such supplements can promote long term resolution of musculo-skeletal conditions, including back and neck problems.
For relief of spasm, inflammation and pain, herbs are a natural alternative to pharmaceutical drugs. Herbs have much fewer side effects, and they are not habit-forming.
