Dr. Demarco, Chiropractor advocating holistic approaches to therapyAt the Black Rock Holistic Health Center, we offer a holistic approach to the treatment of acute and chronic pain.

The key to the holistic approach to treating health problems, such as neck and back pain, disc herniation, muscle pain, headaches, and fatigue, is to get to the root of what is the cause. 

Listening to the patient is an important part of our approach to therapy. Based on the patient feedback, we use alternative therapies, such as chiropractic, acupuncture, homeopathy, and nutrition to re-establish the patient's immune system and musculoskeletal health and balance.

At the Black Rock Holistic Health Center, we are certified in other techniques such as Applied Kinesiology and Graston that complement the other therapies we use.

Since each patient is unique, we tailor the therapy to the patient's needs and sometimes combine more than one therapy to achieve a pain free improved quality of life.

chiropratic manipulation  Chiropractic

Chiropractic medicine is a natural healing approach to help the body achieve a healthier state of well-being.  It is based on the premise that good health depends upon a normally functioning nervous system. When the impulses of the nervous system are uninterrupted, the body can function normally.  When there is an interference in the nerve supply, malfunction begins.  This means the body is being set up for disease.

The spinal cord and the brain are enclosed in a hard, bony structure.  Although the spine supports and protects the nerves, it can sometimes interfere with the flow of nerve impulses.

The Chiropractor will give you an ADJUSTMENT.  This may also be known as manipulation. The Chiropractor will give adjustments by hand.  He or she will apply pressure to those areas of the spine out of proper alignment, or those areas that are not moving within their normal range.  The manipulations are not only of the spinal column, they may also include the shoulders, jaw, elbows, feet, or knees.

acupunture  Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a treatment which can relieve symptoms of some physical and psychological conditions and may encourage the patient's body to heal and repair itself, if it is able to do so.

Acupuncture stimulates the nerves in skin and muscle, and can produce a variety of effects. We know that it increases the body's release of natural painkillers - endorphin and serotonin - in the pain pathways of both the spinal cord and the brain. This modifies the way pain signals are received.

But acupuncture does much more than reduce pain, and has a beneficial effect on health. Patients often notice an improved sense of well-being after treatment.

Modern research shows that acupuncture can affect most of the body's systems - the nervous system, muscle tone, hormone outputs, circulation, antibody production and allergic responses, as well as the respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive systems.

graston  Graston Technique

The Graston Technique, originally developed by athletes, is changing the way clinicians  and patients view treatment of acute and chronic soft tissue injuries.

The Graston Technique is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The Technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments  to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.

For the patient, this mean:

     Decreases overall time of treatment

     Fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery

     Reduces need for anti-inflammatory medication

     Resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent

Applied Kinesiology

Kinesiology is a holistic system of natural health care which uses muscle monitoring to communicate directly with the body. It can assess a person's response to any stimulus.

It draws on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine and can evaluate body function through the muscle-meridian relationship. It can also establish connections between imbalances, put them in order of priority and determine the most effective treatment.

Kinesiology applies a wide range of gentle yet powerful techniques. These restore balance and create and sustain health, well-being and more effective functioning. Kinesiology also draws on and integrates other therapies and healing modalities and can be used as an adjunct to any therapy.

Kinesiology is renowned for being able to uncover and help the underlying causes of health problems that are difficult to find by any other means.

nutrition and nutritional suppliments  Nutritional & Herbal Therapy

Nutrition has a significant impact on how we feel. The lack of certain food supplements can effect, among other, the healthy functioning of the endocrine, cardiovascular, digestive, hepatic, respiratory, skeletal, renal, and other physiological systems.

We address this issues by offering both nutritional and herbal therapies with lifestyle changes, education, awareness, and food supplements.

The vitamins and herbal supplements available at our practice and online through our nutrition link come from companies committed to the highest quality supplements with a combined experience in the field of nutritional supplements for more than 100 years.
