Massage Therapy- Rocky Mountain Chiropractic promotes Massage Therapy to help our clients with their total body care. We have licensed massage therapists on hand. The benefits of massage along with chiropractic care are very synergistic. Massage promotes healing, helps increase joint range of motion, decreases the chance of scar tissue from forming as well as reduces the amount of stress placed on the human body. This is not only a great adjunct to total body care, but it works well with chiropractic adjustments as you heal.
Custom Orthotics-The feet are the foundation of our entire structural system and are the sole or contributing cause of many structural problems. So, if you are suffering with hip, back, hamstring, calf, sciatic, or other problems, even upper body, your feet will usually be involved. If we don't balance and stabilize the feet as our primary goal, we limit the potential benefits when attempting to correct and balance our structures. Dr. Loparco can fit you for custom orthotics.
Ergonomic Backpacks-Physicians recommend that students carry no more than 15% of their body weight on their shoulders and backs, yet studies show that they are lugging as much as 40% of their body weight each day. The unique Airpacks System helps students tote today's loads more comfortably and safely. A properly sized and fitted Airpacks pack enhances the body's natural ability to properly carry weight.
Exercise Balls - Exercises done on an exercise ball strengthen smaller, supportive muscles necessary for posture and core stability. These exercises, done correctly, introduce controlled stability into the movements, which ends up working those core muscles. Basic abdominal and lower back exercises can be translated into ball exercises, as well as most large muscle group movements- dumbbell chest presses, for example. The doctor can suggest exercises, which will help stabilize and strengthen your muscles to support your recovery.
