Natural Healthcare for the Eugene and Springfield Area
This is often a cause of weakness in the joints, muscles, and connective tissues. Nutritional supplements are available which are formulated for this type of problem. Such supplements can promote long-term resolution of musculo-skeletal conditions, including knee and foot problems.
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 may speed up tissue repair for such problems as tendinitis, bursitis, arthritis, sprains, and strains. Micro-current is completely different from the temporary pain management of TENS.
We have excellent results working with “Foot Levelers”. Weight-bearing impressions of both feet are made in our office. About two weeks later we receive a pair of custom-crafted, comfortable supports which fit inside the shoes.
Joint deviation is a prime cause of lower limb problems, and may affect the hip, knee, ankle, or foot. Misalignment may result from postural habits or from past traumatic injury.
When possible, we attempt to balance the alignment by means of corrective exercise. However, because the foot carries the entire body weight, it is often necessary to provide orthotic support.
For relief of spasm, inflammation, and pain, herbs are a natural alternative to pharmaceutical drugs. Properly used, herbs are without harmful side effects, and they are not toxic or habit-forming.
