We offer spinal manipulation (sometimes referred to as a "chiropractic adjustment"), one of the most common and well known therapeutic procedures performed by doctors of chiropractic. The purpose of spinal manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile – or restricted in their movement – as a result of a tissue injury. Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal posture for an extended period of time. In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function for an individual. Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, allowing tissues to heal.
Chiropractic care is different from allopathic medical treatment. Each has its place. And while most people are more familiar with medicine and its treatment of disease, the discipline of chiropractic takes a different approach. A difference which has produced very high success rates in most cases without the need for drugs and surgery.
The purpose of chiropractic care is to revive the ability of the body to self-heal.
Thankfully , the cost of chiropractic care is quite reasonable, especially when you compare it with the expense of traditional medical treatment.

CONDITIONS THAT PHYSIOTHERAPY HELP IN Vista Ca.
Physiotherapy helps restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain, and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities of patients suffering from injuries or disease. Physiotherapy or "medically directed rehab" helps restore, maintain, and promote overall fitness and health. Our Vista patients include accident victims and individuals with disabling conditions such as low-back and spinal pain, arthritis, neck pain, limited joint motion, lumbar compression, sports injuries, disc degeneration and compression, neuropathy.
Treatment often includes exercise; especially for patients who have been immobilized or who lack flexibility, strength, or endurance. Physiotherapy helps encourage patients to use their muscles to increase their flexibility and range of motion. More advanced exercises focus on improving strength, balance, coordination, and endurance. The goal is to improve how an individual functions at work and at home.
Physiotherapy also helps treat a wide range of disorders; such as geriatrics, orthopedics, sports injuries, neurologic and biomechanical conditions.
HOW PHYSIOTHERAPY WORKS
Aspire integrated Health of Vista was designed to provide an ideal environment for healing your body, through chiropractic, massage and the inclusion of physiotherapy where needed. When you arrive at Aspire, our physicians will take a thorough history, and evaluation of the entire body including posture and biomechanics, range of motion and joint mobility to find out the cause of pain or disability. We will then discuss treatment options and goals, so that we can customize a treatment plan catered to you.
The frequency of visits and the length of treatment is determined by the physician who prescribed the treatment.
The results are typically a result of the patient’s commitment. When the patient follows the plan, does their exercises as often as suggested and using the proper techniques, the combined treatment is typically very successful.
TYPES OF PHYSICAL THERAPY WE OFFER
Electrical Muscle Stimulation
Electrical Muscle Stimulation is an exceptional way to help the body in the healing process. This is accomplished by sending a very small electrical current into the affected soft tissue injury or muscle spasm. The therapy utilizes this current in an effort to help reduce swelling and release trigger points that may have the muscle locked up. It does this by helping the body to release natural relievers of pain often referred to as endorphins.
This is a great therapy if there is a spasm in a back or neck muscle. It works well in relaxing the muscle and allowing it to return to its normal state rather quickly. Short therapy sessions are excellent at facilitating healing from acute and chronic pain.
Inferential Electro-Therapy is an excellent method of helping the body deal with spasms, sprains, and issues related to soft tissues. This therapy accomplishes this with a very low simulated frequency that is put on the soft tissue. The feeling of this therapy is very light and most patients feel very comfortable during the treatment.
In addition to this therapy simulating the body's natural healing method by helping it to produce natural pain killing endorphins, it also helps with the release of these strains, spasms and soft tissue issues.
Ultrasound is a therapy that is utilized in the office to handle injuries related to joints, muscle spasms, as well as most soft tissues. While it shares the same name, this ultrasound is not the same as the type of ultrasound utilized diagnostically to screen internally in the body. This ultrasound creates small sound waves that in effect vibrate and massage soft tissues and muscle. These sound waves do an excellent job in facilitating the body's healing process in addition to decreasing scar tissue formation.
Certain ultrasounds also create a heating effect to help relax the muscles or tightness in the body. This heat combined with the overall features of the ultrasound help to start the healing process at the most basic cellular level speeding up your road to recovery.
This is a gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping to help relax and energize you.
This massage technique uses slower, more-forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, commonly to help with muscle damage from injuries.
This is similar to Swedish massage, but it’s geared toward people involved in sport activities to help prevent or treat injuries.
This massage focuses on areas of tight muscle fibers that can form in your muscles after injuries or overuse.
Massage is generally considered part of complementary and alternative medicine. It’s increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations.
Studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension.
While more research is needed to confirm the benefits of massage, some studies have found massage may also be helpful for:
Insomnia related to stress
Myofascial pain syndrome
Soft tissue strains or injuries
Temporomandibular joint pain
To understand a herniated disc there needs to be a short explanation of spinal anatomy. The visible structure of the spine is made up of bony structures called vertebrae. These vertebrae have a tunnel running through each and every one that houses the spinal cord; this cord contains all of the nerves that serve to both move our bodies and feel the world around us.
The spinal cord has branches that grow away from the spine at different intervals, depending where the body needs nerves; for example, the nerves that move and feel for the legs branch off in the low back, while the nerves that move and feel for the arms are closer to the neck.
In between every bony structure, and lying next to the spinal cord tunnels, live fibrous gel-filled sacs called Inter-Vertebral Discs. These discs hold the job of allowing space for the spinal cord to branch out properly, as well as acting as a shock absorber and point of movement for the vertebrae themselves.
If an injury or degenerative disease attacks any one of these discs they have a tendency to bulge out, or herniate, towards the space where the spinal cord is being housed. This bulge can put pressure on the spinal cord and any branching nerves in the area, causing discomfort and pain. The type of bulge can come in many degrees, from mild to severe, and have a wide range of available treatments.
