The word chiropractic means “to be done by hand”. Chiropractic treatment at AcuHealth involves soft tissue work and subtle manipulation to the spine and/or extremities to restore joint function and support the nervous system, immune function and overall vitality. Unique to AcuHealth, our chiropractor, Dr. Marino, is dual licensed in acupuncture and chiropractic. When used together, these two modalities can provide relief from complex or chronic health concerns. Have questions or are curious what might work best for you? Let’s schedule a consultation to talk through your health history and create a treatment plan to meet your needs.
What Sets AcuHealth Apart
At AcuHealth our chiropractor, Dr. Marino, holds a dual license in both acupuncture and chiropractic. This allows him to assess and diagnose complex conditions using Western diagnostic tools like Range of Motion assessments, diagnostic imaging, bloodwork, and nerve and muscle testing while using Eastern medical theory to connect symptoms to their root cause. Gentle manipulation of the spine and joints, soft tissue work, heat therapy, acupressure/acupuncture, stretching exercises and lifestyle modifications may all be included in your holistic chiropractic treatment plan at AcuHealth. Dr. Marino is in-network with several insurance providers. Please call the office with any questions you might have.
Does chiropractic care require a referral from my primary care physician or specialist?
Chiropractic care with Dr. Marino does not require a referral from your primary care physician and most insurance plans do cover a percentage of treatment cost. Before setting up an appointment, let us help you find your benefit information. Call the office to speak with our billing specialist and determine the coverage specific to your insurance plan. No insurance? No problem. We offer self pay rates and would love to work with you.
What are some conditions that are commonly treated with chiropractic methods?
Chiropractic care most directly benefits the central nervous system which, in turn, branches out to impact every organ system in the body. While most of our patients come to us for relief from head, neck, back and joint pain, most comment on the unexpected benefits they feel regarding their mood, stress level, energy level, focus and overall well being. We see patients that range in age from pediatric to geriatric, as the conditions that benefit from chiropractic are countless. Curious about chiropractic care or have tried it before and have questions about our approach? Give us a call today. We would love to speak with you and determine if chiropractic at AcuHealth would serve you.
What is a “chiropractic adjustment”?
Adjustments can be made along the spine and to joints throughout the body to correct alignment, relieve pain or restriction and improve overall function of the affected area. A thorough health history and exam will be taken before areas requiring adjustment are determined. This procedure is gentle, focused and specific to the needs of the patient. Your practitioner will communicate with you throughout the adjustment to make sure there is no discomfort.
Can arthritis be treated with chiropractic care?
Chiropractic care is a safe, natural alternative to effectively manage pain from arthritis. Many of our patients report reduction in medication and overall improvement in mental and physical health with routine chiropractic care. If you have questions specific to your diagnosis, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We would love to look at your diagnostic images or reports and determine what course of treatment might work best for you.
Can I receive chiropractic care if I am pregnant?
Yes! In fact, it’s recommended. Chiropractic can provide natural pain relief throughout the course of pregnancy, benefit fetal positioning in the third trimester and support healthy labor and delivery. Dr. Marino, our chiropractor at AcuHealth, is a father to two and had the honor of supporting both pregnancies, labors and deliveries using his chiropractic knowledge and expertise.
