Sport

Participation in sports or exercise is an important step in maintaining your health.  Exercise strengthens your heart, bones, and joints and reduces stress, among other health benefits.  Unfortunately, injuries during sports and exercise are all to common.  Chiropractic care is effective in not only treating many athletic injuries, but also helping the athlete, at any level, perform at their best potential.  From weekend-warrior tune-ups to little league adjustments, from Division I to the professional level, sports chiropractors, such as Dr. Richter, might well be the proverbial “sixth man” in the sports world.  At PerforMed we can add speed to a pitcher’s fastball and ease the tension on a quarterback’s throwing shoulder.  We can aid in the recovery of an athlete’s injury or enhance the performance of an already elite player.  The teams and athletes who utilize chiropractic swear by its effectiveness.  Those who don’t take advantage of it have no idea what they’re missing.  Contact us to find out how we can help you not only get back on the field, but take your performance to the next level!



Spine

Doctors of Chiropractic care for patients of all ages, with a variety of health conditions.  They are best known, however, for their expertise in caring for back pain, neck pain, and headaches.  The muscles, ligaments, and joints that make up the spine are central to nearly all movement.  When we move we transfer forces.  Top to bottom.  Front to back.  Side to side.  Always through the spine.  The spine influences how the rest of the body moves, and vice versa.  When there is dysfunction in one, the other is affected.  Chiropractic, then, can not only relieve back and neck pain, but improve movement and function throughout the body.  Painful conditions of the musculoskeletal system often involve or impact the nervous system, which can cause referred pain and dysfunction in areas distant to the spine.  The benefits of chiropractic care extend to general health issues as well since our body structure effects our overall function.  Dr. Richter is a specialist in body mechanics as they relate not only to injury and pain, but to optimal function and performance.  Don’t wonder about whether chiropractic can help you.  Contact us today with questions and to schedule an appointment.



Wellness

Wellness is a term we use to describe living and maintaining a healthy lifestyle to achieve normal, if not optimal function, allowing you to live the way you were meant to.  The wellness side of our clinic emphasizes the inherent power of the body.  We know that the body can maintain and heal itself when appropriately cared for.  At PerforMed our focus is not limited to relieving pain.  The ability to live well is dependent on so much more, and you deserve all of it!  How do you sleep?  Do you fuel your body the way you should?  Exercise? Take “you” time?  Do you move well and often?  These questions simply help us set a baseline of health.  How far we go with it is up to you.  What do you want to achieve?

Chiropractic carries an unfortunate, but well deserved stigma we’re sure you’re familiar with:  ”once you start, you can’t stop.”  At PerforMed our philosophy is rather different.  We want you to get in, get well, and get on with your life!  You can be sure that we don’t want you to visit our office any longer than you feel you are benefiting from our care.  That being said, many people do visit us long after their initial complaint is resolved.  Why?  They appreciate the value we can bring to life my maintaining health and improving performance.  We care fiercely for you health and continued enjoyment of life.  We hope you do too.
