At Castro Chiropractic, we take great pride in providing the finest care to each and every patient. We have included information about the different services offered in our Pearl River chiropractic office below; please call us at 845-620-0939 if you have any questions!
We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" techniques. Many of these new chiropractic procedures are safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. Dr. Raphael Castro utilizes his years of training, expertise and experience with these advanced chiropractic techniques to help our patients achieve relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions that originate from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health and wellness.
At Castro Chiropractic, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their bodies that may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can 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 better while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
Many of our patients come to see Dr. Castro to address a specific symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While he will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients toward achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or perform differently to prevent an unintentional aggravation of 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 he/she deserves; one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help him/her achieve total health and wellness.
What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance in their bodies. 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 in his/her 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 Castro Chiropractic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on his/her individual needs.
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 office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to our chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy include an 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 the patient's range of motion, and aid his/her recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!
Spinal & Postural Screenings
There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your spinal health is no exception. Posture and spinal screenings by a trained and experienced chiropractor such as Dr. Raphael Castro can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being. In order to help our community in and around Pearl River, we provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today at 845-620-0939 to arrange a screening at your event or workplace!
