chiropractic adjustments are necessary

When it comes to chiropractic care in Lexington KY, there are a variety of ways to adjust the spine that can help relieve pain and provide you with a better quality of life. Depending on your needs, preferences, and any pre-existing conditions, we may need to apply more or less pressure, which will help determine the style of adjusting we use. Chiropractic care is a great way to deal with pain from car accidents, chronic pain, or pain from an injury. It provides natural relief and can often be used instead of medicine, which may have harmful side effects.

Adjustments, or spinal manipulation, are used to bring mobility back into the joints. This immobility is often one of the causes of the pain you feel in your neck or back and can cause you to overcompensate and injure other parts of your body. Spinal manipulation can reposition the body and help the tissue heal properly.

Lifestyle Advice & Nutritional Counseling

Occasionally, our patients come to us with back or neck pain that they don't know the cause of. We can talk to them about their daily activities and recommend things they should avoid or safer ways to do things that could be causing their pain. We want all of our patients to enjoy a healthy, happy lifestyle, and we don't want to limit them from doing things they love. At our chiropractic office, we try to treat each patient as a whole person, rather than just a problem area, and we want to help them reach true health and wellness.

Along with our lifestyle advice, we also offer nutritional counseling. There are many foods high in certain vitamins and minerals we can recommend to promote whole body healing. Magnesium, for example, is found in dark, leafy greens and can help regulate muscle and nerve function, blood sugar levels, and blood pressure. In order to best treat your pain, we may recommend a certain diet plan, in addition, to help your body heal and reduce your pain.

"I came to Dr Pelphrey with some terrible lower back pain that was effecting my daily life. He listened to everything I had to say along with my concerns. He set up on a program with the goal for this problem to be completely resolved. A couple weeks later I’m 100% pain free. I honestly couldn’t believe it. Dr Pelphrey doesn’t try to sell you anything that’s unnecessary. If you came here looking for evidence he’s the guy for you... here it is."

- Pat M.

"I first was adjusted by Dr. Pelphrey a few years ago, I played basketball my whole life and vigorous weight lifting routine. What a difference, it took my athletic ability to the next level. I increased my max lift and have been injury free in basketball. If there is an athlete out there that does NOT include chiropractic in their "routine" to get healthier, you guys are missing a HUGE part of the equation. Dr. Pelphrey can help you take that next step."

From spinal adjustments to lifestyle advice, complete chiropractic care can be one of the best ways to manage your chronic pain and get your whole body healthy as it moves towards total wellness.

"I could not be more pleased with Dr. Pelphrey and his staff, I am so glad I found him. I suffered from chronic, debilitating migraines that would lay me up for days! I went to my MD and was prescribed medication. It didn't help. I was sent to a physical therapist, it didn't help. I was at my wits end. Finally someone recommended trying a chiropractor. I was skeptical at first, but.... Dr. Pelphrey literally changed my life!! I haven't had a migraine in over 4 months (I used to get them bi-weekly). I would recommended Dr. Pelphrey for any aches or pains you are suffering from, he really knows his stuff!!!"

- Cian O.

"Chronic back pain was an accepted fact of life for me until Dr. Pelphrey began treating me with regular chiropractic adjustments. I am happy to say that I am usually pain free, and so grateful to Dr. Pelphrey for improving my quality of life. He's the best!!"

Therapeutic Modalities in Chiropractic Care

Trigger or Pressure Point Therapy: Reduces tension and improves circulation of blood for healing damaged tissue (in short, it breaks up knots in muscle fibers).

PNF: Enhances passive and active range of motion of the muscles and improves muscle performance.

Spinal Remodeling: Restores and improves loss or abnormal curvature of the spine to stop/reduce spinal degeneration and disc decay. This is done with an orthotic and is part of our corrective treatment protocols when deemed necessary.

Intersegmental Traction: Traction opens the vertebral segments of sections of the spine. It facilitates a decrease in muscle spasm and increase in mobility, circulation and nutrition to the involved spinal joints.

Electrical Muscle Stimulation: The goal of this treatment is for pain relief, muscle stimulation, increased blood flow, and reduction of edema through the muscle pumping action.

Ultrasound Therapy: When applied to the correct muscle regions, ultrasound will sooth muscle tension, increase circulation and promote faster healing of soft tissues.

Heat/Cold application: Heat, when applied, can increase blood flow, increase range of motion and help heal injured areas. Cold therapies decrease blood flow and swelling when applied to injuries or inflamed areas.

Neuromuscular Re-education: Facilitates the return of normal movement, nerve function, and coordination.

"Great personalized care, with caring staff. As a massage therapist I will recommend Pelphrey Chiropractic to all my clients. As an upcoming massage therapist with a chronic dislocating shoulder, Dr Pelphrey is a life saver making it possible for me to complete my clinicals. Definitely a place with solid treatment plans that won't jerk you around for money. No surprises here, just treatment and results!!"

- Skyler C.

"Dr. Pelphrey and his whole staff are amazing! Dr. Pelphrey kept me from getting cortisone shots in my hip! With some adjustments and ultra sound therapy my hip is no longer hurting. I was amazed at the difference! He also adjusted my wrist. I had no idea it could be adjusted or that the problems with my wrist could be fixed. I go to Dr. Pelphrey now just for maintenance and when I experience lower back pain from lifting things that are too heavy. Thank you so much Dr. Pelphrey!"
