Our clinic utilizes state of the art equipment and treatment therapies in order to provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic adjustments are a safe, natural and effective procedure utilized by Chicago chiropractor Dr. Jason Godo, D.C. in order to fix subluxations in the spine and give your body the ability to heal itself.
Dr. Godo believes in holistic healthcare and takes a “Whole Person Approach” to his patients by managing not only the symptoms, but addressing the underlying causes to their injuries and disease. In addition to chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Godo is trained in Applied Kinesiology which tests the strength of various muscles in the body which are directly proportional to organ function and overall health and wellness.
The kinesiologist understands that certain patterns of muscle weakness give clues to the body’s function. Each muscle, for example, can be tested to give an indication of how a specific organ is functioning. A television set and a lamp plugged into the same circuit can both malfunction together. If the television has a short in it, it can overload the circuit breaker, denying power to the lamp, causing it to go out. Think of the television as being analogous to the organ. The circuit breaker is analogous to the nervous system (spinal nerve and spinal cord). The lamp is analogous to the muscle. A skilled applied kinesiologist can use muscle testing and relationships like those between muscles and organs to aid in diagnosis and treatment.
The diaphragm is the large muscle that separates the thorax from the abdomen. It wraps around the esophagus and is the major support structure that can be strengthened and used to help prevent the reflux. Testing is done to determine abnormal functioning of the diaphragm. Then treatment is directed at normalizing its function.
This is followed by exercises to strengthen any weak structures. Nutritional work to augment the body’s own natural anti-inflammatories as well as stimulating healing of the damaged structures is undertaken. Balancing of any imbalances in the normal acid / alkaline systems of the body are also tested for and corrective measures undertaken. Other lifestyle modifications are used to prevent or minimize exacerbating the condition. A specific program for your needs is created.
Each case and each patient with IBS is different so Dr. Godo will provide you with a customized treatment therapy based upon your initial exam. Typically Dr. Godo will remove any subluxations by performing safe and effective chiropractic adjustments to help boost your immunity.
Next, Dr. Godo will perform muscle tests to determine which if any muscles are weak and contributing to improper organ function leading to your IBS. Finally Dr. Godo will provide patients with a specific protocol to follow which includes nutrition guidance and certain products and supplements.
