At Rethwisch Family Chiropractic PC, 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 Omaha office.
Manual manipulation or adjustments are what people typically associate with traditional Chiropracitc care. Manual manipulations can be performed throughout the entire spine (neck and back), sacroiliac joints (pelvis) and all extremity joints (shoulders, elbows, ankles, knees, wrists, hips, etc.) In a manual manipulation, the doctor delivers a low amplitude thrust in a specific anatomical plane, and is generally accompanied by joint cavitations (the popping or cracking sound). Manipulations restore the joints' normal position and/or range of motion and many times provide nearly instant pain relief. Chiropractors have more training in manipulation than any other health care provider. Jeremiah Rethwisch has several additional years of training and experience in spinal manipulation.
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.
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 our patient is a whole person, and help 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? Jeremiah Rethwisch can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
On site X-ray
A High Frequency Summit X-Ray machine is on site ready to go. Our approach for use of X-Ray is simple. Everyone who needs x rays - gets one. We do not routinely X ray every new patient. X rays ARE routinely used is post traumatic cases such as athletic injuries or motor vehicle wrecks, and used more frequently in the aging population. Most times X rays are read by the treating doctor on site. We do not hesitate to get a radiologist's opinion if needed, however. An X-ray report can be sent to your PCP or other treating specialists as well.
