We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Dr. Darin Stokke has years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.
At Lifestyles Chiropractic, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises and functional movement patterns which can help strengthen, re-train and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing instability, imbalance and pain.
Our Function-based Progressive Rehabilitation program is unique and utilizes the SAID principle while focusing on balance, stability and functional movement patterns. In physical rehabilitation and sports training, the SAID principle asserts that the human body adapts specifically to imposed demands. In other words, given stressors on the human system, whether biomechanical or neurological, there will be a Specific Adaptation to Imposed Demands (SAID).Many of these exercises, once mastered, can easily be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care while reinforcing the corrections being made and shortening the duration of most care plans. Our Function-based Progressive Rehabilitation programs are initially performed in the office under the direction and guidance of our certified personal trainers and licensed therapists to ensure proper form and progression so that eventually they can be performed easily in the comfort of your own home.
Our office understands that while many of our patients seek care to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches, it's really about how these symptoms are impacting lifestyle choices and the quality of life. This is why our chiropractor will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, manual therapies, nutritional advice and Function-Based Progressive Rehabilitation as well as provide helpful "coaching" to achieve a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a comprehensive chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness. We believe life is meant to be lived!
What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and 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 on their 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 our Fort Myers chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health.
Our Massage therapy and manual therapy techniques are unique and tailored to each individual case. Our Licensed Massage Therapist utilizes the very effective METs Method (Muscle Energy Technique) to gently and comfortably unlock chronic and acute muscle splinting patterns and bring natural balance back to the body. In addition, we offer deep tissue, sports and site specific massage treatment approaches which quickly relieve musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office utilizes these specific massage and manual therapy techniques as an integral part of your overall care plan. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of our unique massage and manual therapy techniques may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles in addition to helping to re-train and balance the soft and connective tissues. The METs Method has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of using the METs Method may help boost your immune system!
Our certified personal trainers are TPI (Titlist Performance Institute) certified and trained. Our unique program focuses on using Functional Movement Screening, Posture Assessment and Movement Pattern Analysis to determine imbalances, limitations to proper swing movement, and restrictions in joint movement so that a unique program of training and care can be developed. In addition, our trained and experienced chiropractor Dr. Darin Stokke will direct the care and training program to also address, if needed, any underlying health issues, joint dysfunction, and disc related issues that may be effecting your golf game. Contact us today at 239-334-9355 to arrange a golf fitness screening or to find out more about one of our upcoming golf workshops.
Safe and Effective pain relief is now possible with deep penetrating DIOWAVE Laser Therapy.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What Conditions Can Be Treated With DIOWAVE Laser Therapy?
How Are Treatments Administered? Treatments are performed by positioning the laser hand-piece approximately 1/2" directly above the skin and surrounding the are of injury and pain with the laser treatment beam.
How Many Treatments Are Needed? The DIOWAVE Laser Therapy produces results quickly. For most ACUTE conditions 5 - 6 treatments is all that is needed. CHRONIC conditions take longer and might require 6 - 12 treatments. While these are averages, each person is unique and healing time varies by person and condition.
Spinal Disc Decompression is a Drug-Free and Non-Surgical answer for disc related syndromes of the cervical and lumbar spine. Many people across the country have found relief from the pain associated with herniated discs, bulging discs, facet syndrome, degenerative joint disease, pinched nerves, and other spinal afflictions. Spinal Disc Decompression uses computer-aided technology to apply gentle, non-surgical decompression to your spine, increasing circulation into the spinal discs and joints, thus helping to relieve the symptoms that cause pain and dysfunction.
At Lifestyles Chiropractic, we use the exclusive 3D Decompression technology of the 3D Active Trac Decompression Table. Unlike other decompression units on the market, this unique technology allows us to apply specific angles and directions of pull to the spine to most effectively target the exact problem area without the use of cables and pulleys so your treatment is both gentle and maximally effective. At our Fort Myers chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with an individually structured program of Spinal Disc Decompression therapy that is based on their specific condition and goals.
How Does RockTape Work?
RockTape turns down the volume on pain
More specifically, it runs interference on pain. Ever whack your shin and rub it, and suddenly realize you feel better? RockTape on the skin can interfere with painful signals which are directed to the brain.
When the signals arriving to the brain are altered, it does not produce the sensation of pain. When kinesiology tape is properly applied, many of our customers call it “magic” or think that it fixed their injury instantly. In fact, it helps to change how your body interprets pain, turning down the pain “volume” that your body hears.
RockTape Decompresses an area of swelling and inflammation
When RockTape is applied to the skin, it has a microscopic lifting effect underneath the skin and between the many layers. This allows the by-products created by inflammation to be removed more quickly.
RockTape delays fatigue
Research has shown that RockTape on skin can attenuate muscle fatigue. In rehab, this is very important, not only for the parts of your body that are currently hurting, but also for the surrounding areas as they help to pick up the slack for muscles that are currently not working well.
RockTape normalizes muscle tone
When someone is injured, fatigued, sick, or inflamed, the symphony of muscle action that normally takes place with great accuracy often falls out of tune. This can happen all over the body. For instance, research has shown that people who sprain their ankle tend to have altered activity of their hip muscle as a result. RockTape helps bring dormant muscle back to life and help calm down the overactive muscles. It helps your body coordinate movement as if it weren’t hurt, hence allowing it to heal properly.
RockTape distributes physical stress
Unlike conventional taping, which prevents movement – RockTape allows full movement of a taped area. Through elastic properties and quick recoil, RockTape can help distribute forces to other nearby areas through the fascia, ligaments, and even bones.
At Lifestyles Chiropractic, we utilize unique taping techniques using RockTape for specific conditions and unique to each individual person with a goal of reducing pain and inflammation and with a focus on restoring a balanced structure to the body as a whole.
