Dr. Marsha uses a variety of treatment methods. Depending on comfort level and exam findings, she will determine the appropriate method. She utilizes manual adjustments as well as gentle instrument-assisted adjustments. She takes into account extremity joints, such as wrists and ankles, and may apply trigger point therapy or other soft tissue manipulations. In the treatment of infants, her technique involves gentle holding and extremely light touch-pressure on areas needing support.
Dr. Marsha views a patient as the whole person, with complex internal processes, not just a body part in pain. She understands that pain in any part of the body could stem from different sources, requiring a comprehensive assessment and review. She often discusses referrals to other providers, such as Acupuncturists, Psychologists, Massage Therapists, Physical Therapists, Nutritionists, Orthopedists, and Family Physicians. Often, treatment plans involve exercises to do at home as protocols are adjusted depending on progress.
An aligned, healthy, and strong body often leads to positive feelings inside and out. This positivity is contagious. A healthy and vibrant body can have a beneficial effect on your life and significant and meaningful impact on those around you.
It's time to create positive change!
