At Parchem Chiropractic Center, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Baraboo office.
We provide spinal correction utilizing gentle chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Chad Parchem has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
IASTM or Gua Sha
IASTM is a technique used with specially designed tools that treat fascial restrictions, increase blood flow, and areas showing soft tissue fibrosis and other indications. Most cases will respond by as little as the first treatment and can be completely resolved by the 3rd treatment! Dr. Chad is certified in IASTM use.
Flexion/Distraction also known as Decompression
This technique is designed to help treat lumbar disc injuries and other low back and lower extremity radicular conditions. The technique involves the use of a specialized table which allows for passive distraction, flexion, lateral bending, and rotation. These different planes of motion, along with the use of appropriate adjunctive therapy and exercises, allow for reduction of symptoms that are related to lumbar disc syndromes. We can help you with your lumbar flexion/distraction needs.
Auto Injury Chiropractic Care and Workman's Comp
Auto accident injuries are one of the leading causes of spinal and whiplash injuries. These types of injuries, whether they occur as the result of an auto accident or another type of trauma, must be treated properly, or they could lead to chronic pain. Fortunately, undergoing chiropractic treatments can help relieve symptoms following a car or work accident often without the use of pain medications or surgery.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation
This is a great therapy tool for chiropractic patients, since it can help speed up the body’s own healing process and to help reduce pain. With this type of therapy, we attach small electrodes to various points on your body. The pads will send a tiny electrical current through your muscles. It helps the muscle relax and return to normal quickly, as well as allowing your body to hold your chiropractic adjustments longer. If you need electrical muscle stimulation as part of your overall chiropractic care, we can set up the therapy after your adjustment.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each patient is a whole person, and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Chad Parchem can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
