We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments for sports injuries, auto injuries, pediatric care, back pain and neck pain including corrective exercises. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Dr. Bo Mullen and Dr. Jamie Mullen have years of training, expertise and experience in helping pediatric patients and their parents get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine like colic, sleeping issues, constipation and much more. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.
At Harbor Life Chiropractic, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" corrective exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction. Incorporating these corrective exercises into your personalized chiropractic care plan helps to get you better faster and keep you healthier.
Many of our patients come to see our chiropractors to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractors will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. We go further with our patients to identify habits and activities that may be a factor in your pain or illness and will offer ways to modify daily activities to complement your chiropractic care.
What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health.
Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles.
