Dr. Krystosik's Secret To Eliminate Neck/Back Pain

When a door is not working properly, you wouldn’t just inspect the door in a closed position. After observing the door in the closed and opened position, you would swing the door open and closed to determine if it was functioning correctly—moving properly. Dr. Krystosik uses a similar approach when examining a patient’s spine.

First, as all chiropractors do, Dr. Krystosik carefully examines each spine while standing, sitting and lying down. Next, as all chiropractors do, he examines the spinal movements as the patient walks, squats, bends and twists. Finally, and most importantly, here is Dr. Krystosik’s distinct difference (his secret) in evaluating his patient’s spine.

Eliminate Neck/Back Pain

Dr. Krystosik carefully palpates (feels) every joint in the spine while they are moving (it’s called motion palpation). He evaluates every joint in the neck, midback and low back in this manner checking them for proper movement in all 4 ranges of motion. If he finds any restricted joint movement, Dr. Krystosik will apply the most effective and biomechanically correct ways to mobilize the fixated joints. restoring them with motion (movement). If motion is not restored in every joint of the spine, the pain will keep coming back and worse than that, arthritis will eventually set into the spine. Dr. Krystosik believes that any evaluation less than this will not provide a patient with the maximum benefit of chiropractic care. Experience the difference in spinal care.

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. James Krystosik 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 you achieve total health or wellness.


Corrective Exercises

Corrective Exercises

At The Other Side of Medicine Health Center, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their 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

Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.

Lifestyle Advice

Nutritional Counseling

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 Northfield 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 musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their 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!
