Exercise rehabilitation helps to improve flexibility and balance

Flexibility is the ability to extend or stretch without breaking. The term is usually used to describe muscles but can also be used to describe a movement involving a number of muscles. Along with physiotherapy building muscle strength and aiding in recovery, these exercises can also improve flexibility, a vital part of maintaining a sound body. Balance can be difficult for the body over time, regardless if you are injured or not. The body sometimes works to compensate for weak areas, ultimately throwing the body off-balance just from daily activities.

Physiotherapy treatment modalities used at Gelband Natural Health & Chiropractic

  • Chiropractic Adjustments: Chiropractic adjustments provide effective pain relief from a wide variety of conditions.

  • Electrical Muscle Stimulation: Electric muscle stimulation is a physical rehabilitation therapy modality that is used to stimulate muscle contractions using electrodes hooked up to an electric stimulation machine at our facility. These contractions help to control pain, manage inflammation and strengthen the muscle.

Injured my lower back a year ago. I thought it healed up 3 months after but found out there was something wrong .It would be stiff and would take a longer time than usual to warm it up. I even spar, do my training well. But it would just stiffen up sometimes. So I got a session David and I swear the pain just went away! It just loosen up! I also became more mobile in my sparring and training! So if you guys feel something “off” or if it’s just something “small”, make sure to get it checked because it can get BIG in the future.

Dr. Reed is the best Chiropractor that I have ever been to!!! I had ringing in the ears due to an auto accident, and when I came in to see him, I was really stressed and scared, but he immediately made me feel 100% comfortable. He told me not to worry, and that I would be okay. He was 100% right! No more ringing in the ears. Oh, I also had a dislocated jaw that he took care of. I wouldn’t go to anyone else. He and his staff are so good at getting you in as quickly as possible!!! My family now uses him too!!! Definitely check him out!!!

Dr. Reed is Amazing! He is the nicest medical professional that I have ever met. After a nasty injury at work he has been there for me. If you’re physically and mentally not feeling well he is the person to see.

I had severe lower back pain and leg pain.  After a few visits with David he was able to get me back up and running.  I have used other chiropractors in the area and they do not either know what to adjust or don’t have the strength to adjust you correctly.  However, David is able to do both.  His new facility is fully equipped for all types of therapy and parking is so easy.

I’ve been seeing Dr. Reed for the past few years and HIGHLY recommend him.  He’s truly one of the best around.

I had a slipped disc, sciatica, and back pain that was with me for months on end forcing me to be on a number of different medications. Desperate for help, but a little skeptical of chiropractors, I slowly started asking around for referrals. I went to visit a few around LA that seemed to make snap judgments about my issues and jumped in to do a quick adjustment before sending me on my way.  I found they tended to be focused on short term solutions which was an incredibly frustrating process. I was unbelievably relieved when I finally found Dr. Reed who took the time to do a number of tests, continually tracked my progress, gave me exercises to help strengthen my core, and over time, managed to completely relieve all my pain.

Him and the staff are incredibly friendly, flexible with hours, and clearly care about your well being.  They also managed to stay on schedule and keep appointments which is a big plus. He answered all my questions, never rushed me out of the office, and ultimately helped get me pain-free.

I’m incredibly grateful for Dr. Reed’s help and would certainly recommend him to anybody in need of help.

As a former martial arts and yoga instructor, I’ve had a ton of body work done over the years–and I can say that Dr. Reed is a true healer. I have a very large (1.1 cm) disc bulge and other problems with my alignment which have debilitated me for over a year, but Dr. Reed completely turned my situation around. I felt significant relief from months of pain after just the first session, and over a few months of treatment, I went from not being able to arch my back  at all to being able to do full cobras again. All the flexibility I had lost came back. And I went from feeling like I could strain my back with the slightest wrong move to being able to do pretty extreme workouts again.

One example of how caring and proficient Dr Reed is: After a treatment for my back, I told him that something had gone wrong with my foot, resulting in pain while walking. Within 5 minutes, he did some magic that solved the problem on the spot. He has that ability to feel around and know what’s precisely what’s wrong with any skeletal-muscular issue.

He’s also pretty much as nice as people come, and will answer questions thoroughly and patiently. I highly recommend.

HE IS THE GREATEST!
Dr. Reed was recommended to me by my personal trainer. He is awesome. He was a personal trainer previously and is very knowledgeable. He is gentle and very effective.   I have had a problem with my back for many years and in just a few short months he has made it considerably better. Best thing I did was start going to him. You will really like him.
