Chiropractic Care

When you are in need of chiropractic care, you can count on the team of doctors at Heartland Chiropractic Associates with offices in Sioux City and Dakota Dunes. We proudly serve Siouxland in the Iowa, South Dakota, and Nebraska area.

Chiropractic care takes a holistic view of healthcare. Treating symptoms is not what it's all about, it is getting to the root of the problem. When the brain can send signals to the rest of the body without interference, the body can operate at its highest level and be able to heal itself.

Chiropractic Manipulation

Our practice uses a variety of different chiropractic manipulation techniques. Among those we utilize are:
- Diversified
- Gonstead
- Thompson
- Palmer Package
- Activator
- Graston Technique

No matter which technique is used, the ultimate goal is the same; to clear up any misalignment which may make the body function at less than optimal level. The chiropractor will suggest the technique that will be the best match for you and your body. Some use just hands, others use instruments or a device that provides a gentle adjustment.

Electric Muscle Stimulation  Electric muscle stimulation uses low levels of electricity to cause muscles to contract, which, after a while,  tires them out. When they are tired, they relax and that often results in fewer muscle spasms and less pain.

Therapeutic Activities  Therapeutic exercises target very specific areas that are causing problems. They are designed to help with flexibility, strength, and relieve pain.

Ultrasound Ultrasound therapy helps to heal soft tissues at the cellular level. It produces heat and increases circulation while reducing the amount of scar tissue.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is often used in conjunction with spinal manipulation and chiropractic care. Both the therapies work better when they are used together, helping to reduce the healing time. Massage therapy can be relaxing and when muscles are relaxed they are more receptive to other therapies. When you have a sports injury or are pregnant and suffering from the aches and pains that so often accompany it, massage therapy can help.

Spinal Decompression / Traction
Spinal decompression stretches the spine. This pulls the vertebrae apart and allows the disc to pop back into the spot where it belongs. This takes the pressure off the nerves.
