Services & Techniques

At Elm Park Chiropractic, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic care to each and every patient. We have included information below about the different chiropractic services offered in our office, but please call us at (508) 753-0503 if you have any questions!

 Chiropractic Care 

We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing state of the art chiropractic techniques. Modern chiropractic techniques are safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. Dr. Berard has years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief from back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care can also be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve and maintain health and wellness.

estim  Electrical Muscle Stimulation, Therapeutic Ultrasound & Cold Laser Therapy

Electrical Muscle Stimulation (E-stim therapy) is used to help control pain, get stronger, increase physical functioning, increase mobility, and manage inflammation. It works by applying an adjustable electrical current through tissue via electrodes in patches placed on the skin. 

Therapeutic Ultrasound is used to provide deep heating and energy to soft tissue in the body which include muscles, tendons, joints and ligaments. It uses high frequency sound waves administered in the region of soft tissue injuries and has been shown to cause an increase in healing rates, tissue relaxation, tissue healing, local blood flow, and scar tissue breakdown. The high frequency vibrations of the waves can also help break down and disperse unhealthy calcium and other hard tissue accumulations.   

Cold Laser Therapy utilizes a low-intensity laser to treat chronic and acute pain, soft tissue injuries, joint conditions, skin conditions and to promote healing. The laser’s infrared wavelengths are absorbed by the mitochondria in the cells which stimulates tissue repair and healing.

exercise  Corrective Exercises

At Elm Park Chiropractic, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises, as well as customized exercises, which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.

 Lifestyle Advice

 Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches.  While our chiropractor will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving 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 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.

 Nutritional Counseling

 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 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 chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.

 Massage Therapy

  Bernice Morrisette, DMT, graduated Bancroft School of Massage in 1981 and the Therese Pfrimmer School of Deep Muscle Therapy. She has worked with several chiropractic patients over the years. Bernice practices a technique that focuses on restoring muscle health from chronic pain. Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural  treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides deep tissue massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery!

 Spinal, Postural & Orthotic Screenings

 There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your spinal health is no exception. Posture and spinal screenings by our doctors can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being. We offer customized foot scans with our Footlevelers 3D Scanner, as well as scoliosis screenings at no charge, by appointment only.
