Chiropractic Care

We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Dr. John Craviotto has years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help achieve total health and wellness.


Corrective Exercises

Special "blueprint" exercises  can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in the body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.


Lifestyle Advice

While Dr. John addresses each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, he can also "coach" you towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. There may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. Lifestyle advice together with chiropractic care can help patients achieve a more fulfilling life.


Nutritional Counseling

What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their 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? At our Santa Barbara chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.


Massage Therapy

Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which actually relieves musculo-skeletal pain for many patients. Dr. Craviotto provides specific massage and muscular therapy complimentary to his chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system.


Spinal & Postural Screenings

Spinal health is vital to your overall health. Posture and spinal screenings by a trained and experienced chiropractor such as Dr. John can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being.

The Art of the Chiropractor

The Art of Chiropractic Body Alignment

Your entire skeletal structure has a natural and healthy alignment if it is formed properly by nature.

Injury

When an injury occurs, that alignment of bone structure may be throw-off, and the surrounding muscles and ligaments may tense-up to hold the injured area in a fixed position, trying to prevent further injury.  While this fixed position may be a good temporary safeguard, it can become problematic.  Injuries often cause a misalignment of the spine or neck or even a limb joint, shoulder, knee, ankle.  Muscles holding this fixed position can exacerbate the injury.  If this misalignment and muscle tension remain untreated for a length of time, the result is often severe pain (nerve pain) and can even lead to serious degeneration of a joint or vertebrae.

Skill of the Chiropractor

It is the skill of the chiropractor to correct these misalignments through physical adjustments and also to relax the muscle tension.  The use of message or electrical muscle stimulation are common methods of relaxing the muscles after or before a treatment.

Self Help

While an injury may require several chiropractic treatments during the healing process, there are several things a patient can do to help their condition.  Stretching, walking, icing (ice, ice pack) or heat treatment (heating pad, hot water bottle, hot shower, hot jacuzzi).  Certain supplements may also help.

Chiropractic Tools

There are also chiropractic tools available.  Orthotic shoe inserts can help correct a misalignment in the foot which may be causing a walking or standing problem.  The orthotic aligns the bottom of the foot which supports the entire body, ankle, knee, hip and back—the whole column.

Another  chiropractic tool is the cervical pillow.  This pillow is designed to maintain the natural curvature of your neck while lying on your back or sleeping.

The reason these tools are so effective is that they support the natural and proper alignment of your body, which nature may fail to do at times.  While an injury is healing and even after it is healed, it is wise to support the alignments by whatever means possible, for as long as possible.
