At Lawrence Teixeira DC, PA., we take great pride in providing the finest wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different services we offer in our Altamonte Springs office
Sports Chiropractic Care
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Dr. Teixeira combines soft tissue sports techniques with chiropractic in order to obtain optimum results. The combination of these methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Lawrence Teixeira has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
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. Exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
In the traditional Chinese method of acupuncture, health results from a harmonious balance between the complementary extremes (yin and yang) of the life force, known as qi or chi. By inserting needles into these points in various combinations, the energy is rebalanced alleviating illness. In the Western method of acupuncture, pain is alleviated by stimulating nerves, muscles and connective tissue to release your body's natural painkillers and increase blood flow.
Active Release Technique
ART is an effective, hands-on, non-surgical approach to relieve your pain. There are over 500 specific treatment protocols that are unique to ART. ART works by releasing restrictions (scar tissues) to muscles, ligaments and connective tissues and releases trapped nerves. This allows strength, flexibility, and function to return.
Although a relatively simple product, Kinesio tape can be used to treat a virtually limitless number of ailments and injuries. Four major functions of Kinesio taping have been observed over many years of application. It has been very beneficial in supporting muscles, reducing swelling and pain, improving blood and lymphatic circulation and correcting joint problems.
We recognize that each patient is a whole person. In order to help them reach true health and wellness, a collaborative treatment effort that includes nutrition, avoidance of inflammatory triggers (such as food allergies), and optimum hormone balance is needed. We 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.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s performance. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Our office does nutritional testing, such as Spectracell and Hair Mineral Analysis, to determine your individual needs so you can preform at your optimum level.
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.
