At Stepping Stone Chiropractic, we take great pride in providing the finest care to our patients. Below is a preview of the services we offer at our Richmond and Ashland offices.
We provide spinal correction utilizing gentle chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Tara Bath has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
There are literally hundreds of conditions, disorders and diseases that acupuncture can effectively treat. Treatments are tailored for individual case circumstances, which enhances the efficacy of the treatment. Dr. Bath will determine if acupuncture treatment is right for you, based upon your symptoms and unique medical history. When a needle is inserted, a slight pinching will be felt. However once the session is underway, many patients feel very relaxed and even fall asleep. Click here to learn more about acupuncture.
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.
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.
Orthotics offer quality-of-life improvement for anyone, young, old, athletic or otherwise. They can help improve pain, posture, balance and physical performance in all aspects of life. They help prevent or treat low back pain, hip pain, knee pain and neck pain, and are one of the best ways to deal with foot conditions such as bunions, heel spurs and plantar fasciitis.
Infrared Sauna (Ashland office only)
Infrared saunas use infrared light waves which penetrate your body on a deep cellular level, reaching your muscles and tissues. In turn, your body heats from within while the air temperature around you remains comfortable. By promoting deep sweating, the infrared sauna allows the body to function better by reviving the circulatory system, stimulating lymphatic drainage, improving nutrient flow, and expelling toxins from cells and tissue.
