NYC Chiropractor, Dr. Louis Granirer, founder of the Holistic Chiropractic Center of New York City, utilizes many different types of treatments at his practice. He knows and understands that not all treatment options are right for every person. This is one of the many key components of his highly-effective treatment plans. Some of the treatments he incorporates include, but are not limited to:
- Applied Kinesiology
- Muscle Testing
- Nutrition Response Testing
- Chiropractic Adjustments
- Flexion Distraction
- Cold Laser Therapy
- Injury Recall Technique
It has been long-established that there is a connection between your organs and different muscles in your body. Everything is linked by the nervous system. Kinesiology is focused only on how the body moves, while Applied Kinesiology involves the deeper connection of our muscles to other parts of our bodies.
Applied Kinesiology is a system of analysis and treatment used in many healing and medical professions. It combines muscle testing, neurovascular reflexes, neurolymphatic reflexes, soft tissue technique, craniosacral work, acupressure, and other body therapies to achieve a proper road map to healing.
Applied Kinesiology looks at the link between muscles, organs, and systems in the body. It is a vital analysis that allows a practitioner to help the patient get better as quickly as possible.Muscle Testing
Muscle testing is a modality that uses the muscle’s response to determine whether your body has a problem with a certain issue, or if something will help your body to function better. Dr. Granirer uses the most advanced muscle testing techniques, which allows him to obtain the most reliable reading possible. Many muscle testers rely on a basic weak or strong response, but Dr. Granirer goes way beyond simple testing into advanced hypertonic and provocative testing. This goes hand-in-hand with a patient obtaining the best results possible.
Muscle testing pinpoints the locations of interference or blockages in nervous system pathways. After determining the cause of the problem, muscle testing can also point to a solution. Treatments are customized to every individual patient, based on their specific muscle responses.Nutrition Response Testing
Food sensitivities and toxicities are a culprit for a surprising number of ailments that people suffer from in today's society. Nutrition Response Testing is a form of testing using muscle testing, acupuncture points, neurological reflexes and homeopathic dilutions to find underlying causes of imbalances in the body. When imbalances are identified and these imbalances are corrected the body can heal properly.
Nutrition Response Testing muscle tests for dysbiosis (microbial imbalance), such as, but not limited to:
- Candida and Yeast Infections
- Heavy metals
- Chemical toxicity, hypercoagulation, and biofilms
The dietary regimen and nutritional supplementation protocol associated with nutrition response testing, serves to detoxify, fortify, rebuild, and ultimately balance the elaborately networked system of your body. Nutrition response testing allows the body to function at its optimal level of wellness and can help the body to function better. It can lead to a stronger immune system and greater overall health. Dietary modification and nutritional supplements are customized for each individual patient.Gentle Chiropractic Adjustments
Chiropractic care alleviates the body of pain, tension, and discomfort. Gentle and effective adjustments can restore the normal range of motion to a joint that is not functioning optimally. Adjustments can help spinal pain related to the neck, mid-back, and low back. Chiropractic care can also help with pain in the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle, and foot.
Chiropractic adjustments can also be very effective as a treatment for headaches, and it also boosts the immune system. Many patients find that within 8 weeks of starting chiropractic care, their pain and discomfort is reduced and resolved.Flexion Distraction
Flexion distraction is an amazing alternative to surgery to resolve spinal injuries, spinal pain and neck pain as well. It is a special form of spinal manipulation with a specialized table. It is a gentle technique and successful in almost all cases.
If you suffer from slipped discs, herniated discs, frequent neck and shoulder pain, pinched nerves, sciatica or spinal stenosis and you hope to avoid surgery or surgery was not effective then contact Dr. Louis Granirer for a free consultation.Cold Laser Therapy
A unique type of treatment for wounds, inflammation and other similar injuries is cold laser therapy. It is painless, fast and can even be administered over your clothing. Along with its healing properties it can also stimulate the immune system, nerve function and blood flow. It works thanks to the chromophores located in your body's tissue.
Chromophores are light receptors activated by low-level light. When activated many healing biological processes begin to take place in the area. It is even effective at treating older scar tissue and has shown effectiveness in treating certain food allergies and intolerance.Injury Recall Technique
Injury recall technique allows for the body to heal faster using applied kinesiological concepts and involves various body movements. Using Injury recall technique the patient can hold their adjustment longer by changing the way the brain reacts to an old injury.
Various bad habits lead to assorted aches and pains in the body, but you can achieve pain relief and avoid chronic pain in the future. Injury recall can aid with joint pain, poor balance and poor posture.
