Corrective Exercises
We teach our patients special “blueprint” exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.

Lifestyle Advice
We often find it helpful to “coach” our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each patient is a whole person, and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.

Nutritional Counseling
We believe that given the proper nutrition and exercise, the body has the ability to heal itself. We believe in the use of organic, whole food supplementation to assist and support the body. Our doctors try to find the root cause of the patient’s symptoms and are able to help with a plethora of conditions.

Spinal & Postural Screenings
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.

Functional Rehabilitation: At Lanhum Chiropractic, we look at the body as a functional unit. Many conditions affecting Americans today are caused by the way we move. The doctor at Lanhum Chiropractic uses functional assessments to determine the root cause of a patient’s condition and prescribe exercises to fix the way in which patients move.

Acupuncture: Acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely thin needles into strategic points on the body. This is done to stimulate the nervous system to decrease pain and increase blood flow. Acupuncture can treat a multitude of conditions including: Allergies, Asthma, Sinusitis, Headaches, Back Pain, Musculoskeletal pain, Insomnia, Anxiety, Dizziness, Fatigue, Depression, High Blood Pressure, Fibromyalgia, Addiction, Indigestion, Constipation, Sexual Dysfunction, and many more!:
