Dr. Best offers a 40 minute initial office visit and treatment for general injuries; 60-90 minute office visits are necessary for more complex chronic injuries or very acute injuries especially personal injury incidences, i.e. car accidents. When booking appointments online or over the phone, please choose the appropriate time frame for your situation.
Because Dr. Best practices a more indepth approach with less frequent visits than traditional chiropractors, appointments are price based on direct face to face time with Dr. Best beginning in 20 minute increments. Regular follow-up visits are 20 minutes, while chronic, acute or PI injuries are either 30, 40 or 60 minutes.
Dr. Best depending on treatment protocols offers or may use a combination of: Diversified Adjusting, Activator Adjusting, Zone Therapy, Cranial Sacral Adjusting, Applied Kinesiology, Non-Force Adjusting, Erchonia Low Level Laser Therapy, Magnetic Therapy, Meridian and Polarity Balancing, Perussion, Deep Tissue Myofascial Manipulation, Rehab, Dynamic Exercises, Stretching, Neuromuscular Reeducation, NET, NEXT
Physical healing can also take place on many levels and many different modalities.
Dr. Best began his journey using Reiki and then moved into deep tissue neuromuscular reeducation. After becoming proficient in those areas, Dr. Best became a chiropractor. During his education he also studied Applied Kinesiology (AK) through the ICAK, as he had been helped directly from AK with his own back injuries, having broken his back at the age of 16.
Dr. Best found chiropractic and AK to be the fastest way to help heal physical disturbances in the body. Dr. Best is not your standard chiropractor only manipulating the spine for 5 minutes. Dr. Best utilizes his tools with soft tissue, muscle integration and balancing the muscular and nervous systems. The idea is that muscles move bones and integrating AK with physical adjustments allows the body to maintain its corrections.
Chiropractic adjustments don't have to hurt; in fact they shouldn't. There is no need to create more physical stress when releasing the chronic stress from the body. In some cases people are highly sensitive to touch, in these cases Dr. Best uses low force adjusting techniques like Activator, DNFT and respiratory corrections.
Ignoring the nutritional component in healing can prolong the time frame in which the body heals.
Dr. Best is highly skilled at finding what nutritional deficiencies may be creating or holding on to dysfunction in the body. The cells of the body need the proper balance of nutrients and alkalinity to heal properly.
Certain foods can be inflammatory to your system and may be the underlying culprit to a chronic injury. Dr. Best utilizes and non-inflammatory diet in weight loss protocols, but also where chronic inflammation is a problem in a patient's recovery.
Dr. Best also offer Allcat testing for an in depth look at inflammatory foods.
I found the best illustration of what explains the process in many forms of energy healing was the movie "What The Bleep Do We Know" , as it shows how the mere observation and intent of observer influences the behavior of the atomic structures and molecules. Light was observed to change its nature from a wave to a particle form just by being observed.
In Emoto's work "Messages from Water" we see how the physical structure is water at the molecular level is changed to form different crystal patterns based on intention and the vibration that is carried in words. This has huge relevance in our lives since we are more than 70% water and up to 90% water in the brain; in other words, if we are speaking degrading statements to ourselves we are affecting our own structure. Meditation and prayer also had a PROFOUND effect on the structure of the water.
When it comes to energy healing modalities some common sense still needs to be applied, because we are more than just 'light' energy bodies. We are also composed of denser frequencies of earth minerals which means that we may need healing with more than just 'light' energy, we may need minerals, herbs, medicine, surgery, exercise and chiropractic.
