I practice Chiropractic Medicine using a blend of Western and Eastern methods. My overarching goal is to improve my patients' physical well-being, helping them improve their balance, flexibility, endurance and strength.
First, the issue of pain must be addressed. To do this, I often use Two-Point Acupressure, an Oriental Medicine technique developed over the last thirty years by Dr. San-Chi Ko, M.D. Other pain-control techniques may be appropriate, so for such patients I might also use the Egoscue Method, and traditional Chiropractic Medicine.
Most people's pain arises from the way they use their body, which very often has been altered from the normal way because of an injury. Over time, the body's structure has changed itself to adapt to that use. So after pain has been relieved to a point that the patient can benefit, I begin to offer conservative methods that address the body's structure and function. These include deep-tissue methods as Graston Technique and others.
Finally, there can be no lasting improvement without a person's own commitment to their own physical health. I will help them by creating a plan for their rehab and maintenance, and I will guide them until they are comfortable with it. Guiding principles in this phase of recovery are derived from the Egoscue Method and traditional rehab.
Thanks, and I'm looking forward to meeting you,
Laurence Kahn, D.C.
