Chiropractic is used to treat patients suffering from a wide variety of symptoms like headaches, neck pain, back pain, hip pain, osteoarthritis, rotator cuff injuries, sports injuries, migraines, poor posture, and much more. Dr. Kirsten has successfully treated many of these conditions. However, chiropractic’s best work is arguably the way it keeps you in good health, maintaining your whole system so you move well and age well. An appointment with Dr. Petersen includes ample time to hear your story, thoroughly examine your body, and perform treatments that include myofascial release, energetic balancing, and other therapies to complement your adjustment. She offers a number of gentle chiropractic treatments, including:
Chiropractic care is a non-invasive healing art that nurtures your body’s innate capabilities to heal itself. It is based on the principle that the human body holds amazing regenerative and healing abilities. When your nervous system is unblocked and your energy can flow freely, you are more likely to overcome the need for invasive treatments that often only address your symptoms. Pain and dysfunction in any area of the body is related to nervous system, and by using chiropractic adjustments to optimize your spine, your joints and your movements, we can minimize that pain and improve your overall function.
Dr. Petersen’s treatments are unique in that she typically weaves craniosacral therapy and energy balancing techniques into your chiropractic visit. Craniosacral promotes healing and energetic balance in your nervous system in a different way than chiropractic does, making it a perfect compliment to your adjustment to enhance results. You will find that this gentle work centers and grounds you, and can make big shifts in your symptom picture despite its subtle nature. It’s relaxing and centering qualities make it a great tool pre- or post-adjustment.
