Computerized Postural and Neuromuscular Screening

Nervous system and postural stress wreak long-term havoc with most Americans. The best solution is a combination of chiropractic wellness care, therapeutic massage, and a personalized exercise program.

As an introduction, during the months of June and July, Dr. Allen will be offering this new, state-of-the-art diagnostic computer screening of your nervous system, muscle tension, and posture for just $45--the price of one regular visit and half of the usual charge. As a further value-added service, for just an additional $25, he will develop a customized 10-week exercise program to help correct any postural faults that are detected. This, too, is being offered at half the usual price.

Below left: Scans of skin temperature and muscle activity give an insight into the function of the nervous system.

Below right: Posture photographs with computer analysis give a clear picture of stress. Combining these tools with a thorough chiropractic examination enables Dr. Allen to give patients a better treatment plan.

Chiropractic Saves Mom's Visit to Oregon

Progress Documented with Insight Millennium

Photo of Patricia Harkness

Patricia Harkness, pictured at right, was referred to me by her chiropractor in Nebraska while she was visiting her daughter in Portland. She had been suffering from constant, extreme pain shooting from her left upper back and shoulder blade down her left arm since falling off a ladder four months ago. She was taking heavy doses of the painkiller Neurontin and anti-inflammatory Celebrex without any relief. Patricia told me that she "feared addition or damage to her kidneys and liver." Intensive care was required to reverse this situation quickly! Patricia's condition was reversed in five visits in less than one week with a combination of massage, safe enzymes and anti-inflammatory herbs, and chiropractic adjustment of the underlying rib and neck subluxations. She was given instructions on a home care exercise program to reverse the postural faults found with Dr. Allen's new computerized analysis. She started improving her diet. She returned to Nebraska as a happy camper, where she will follow up with her doctor.

Below, see how Patricia's dramatic improvement shows on the muscle scans! To the left is the "before" to the right is the "after."
