At Sea Coast Family Chiropractic, 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 Point Pleasant Beach office.
Spinal & Extremity Adjustments
We provide spinal corrections 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, Barbara and Frank Costa has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
LiteCure® Cold Laser Therapy
We are equipped with three 25W LiteCure® therapy lasers. Cold laser therapy works through your body’s cells to help your body heal at a faster rate. It repairs damaged cells and replicates healthy cells around the injured area of your body. Our Class IV Laser equipment by LiteCure is the strongest and most effective laser currently on the market. It is the same cold laser therapy equipment that is used by many professional sports teams.
Stretching & Strengthening Exercises
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.
Throughout one’s pregnancy, there may be pain and/or discomfort in the back and neck due to the ligaments and joints loosening up. Utilize chiropractic care to help realign your spinal cord and the ligaments and muscles that surround it to lessen pain and promote health throughout your pregnancy and during birth.
Therapies & Techniques
Cold Laser Therapy -
We utilize cold laser therapy to help aid in tissue repair and relief from pain and inflammation. Cold laser therapy uses low wavelengths of light targeted towards your body’s tissue to alleviate pain caused by injury or aging and accelerate the healing process.
Myofascial Release -
We offer an alternative medicine therapy called myofascial release that is used for treating skeletal muscle immobility and pain. Myofascial release therapy is a hands-on treatment that utilizes gentle, sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to relax contracted muscles, improve blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulates the stretch reflex in muscles.
Therapeutic Massage -
Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
Trigger Point Therapy -
The use of massage for trigger point therapy on a regular basis can help naturally manage pain and stress from chronic injuries. Pressure is applied to a trigger point long enough to release and relax the muscle. This increases blood flow to the muscle to allow normalization and bring it back to a health state.
Athletic Taping -
The Doctors at Sea Coast Family Chiropractic utilize the application of taping to help their patients decrease pain, provide stability to injured joints, and yield a quicker recovery. The pliable tape is applied directly to the skin to help maintain normal joint/muscle function during activity. The tape also aids in reducing swelling and muscle spasms, therefore providing our patients with faster recovery .
