Chiropractic

Martin Choy, DC Pasadena, CA

Chiropractic care focuses on the disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems and the effects of these disorders on the overall health of an individual. It is a safe, effective method of treating the body through hands-on treatment that reduces pain, increases motion, and restores function without the use of drugs or surgical treatment.

The purpose of chiropractic care is to restore joint mobility by physically applying controlled force into joints that have become restricted in movement. These restrictions are usually a result of soft tissue damage caused by a single traumatic event, such as whiplash in a motor vehicle accident, or through repetitive stress, such as sitting down incorrectly for an extended period of time.

Tissues that are injured begin to go through changes that cause inflammation, pain and reduced function—creating adhesions within and between them. Adhesions cause the motion of muscles or joints to become limited, resulting in various symptoms including pain, weakness, reduced range of motion, numbness and tingling. By manipulating and adjusting the affected joint or tissue area, mobility is restored, which helps to alleviate pain and muscle tightness—allowing the area to heal.

At Choy Chiropractic, we provide advanced spinal manipulation and soft-tissue treatment modalities that are safer, more comfortable and much more effective than some invasive medical procedures. We also provide customized therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises that patients can do in the comfort of their own homes, as well as advanced sports related training advice.
