At Crane Chiropractic, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Star office.
We provide advanced spinal and extremity correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Stephen Crane has years of training and experience in spinal and extremity adjusting. He utilizes several different techniques, such as Diversified, Activator and Gonstead, as well as highlighting the importance of correcting misalignments in the arms, legs and jaw. Each individual is not the same and may respond differently to different techniques, therefore it is important to have flexibility in providing care.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Dr. Stephen Crane can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
Manual Therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain and adhesions for many patients. Our office provides specific muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of manual therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
The position of your feet make a huge difference to your overall posture and may have a profound affect on your knees, hips and back. Most people tend to pronate when they walk. This means that their foot would tend to roll in or flatten, the knee would tend to twist inward and the hip would tend to twist forward. Some visual indicators that you may be a candidate for orthotics would be the combination of standing like a penguin with feet flared out, hips tilted forward, shoulders forward and neck forward.
Our orthotics are truly custom made by a lab with over 30 years of experience. They are made directly off of your casting and custom made to your prescription with care by hand. The difference between these and the ones that you may buy at a sporting goods or shoe store is that the ones from the store are simply pre-cast generic inserts that likely may not fit your feet correctly. Our custom orthotics are tailor-made for your specific foot in a professional lab. We have priced them competitively so that they are very affordable. They come cushioned and yes, they are meant to last.
