At Total Wellness Center, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Aurora office.
Chiropractic care is a conservative care modality that involves correcting joint alignment problems. These alignment problems can interfere with joint function, leasing to pain and stiffness; they can also promote muscular strain conditions and impinge nerves, interfering with normal nervous system function. Chiropractors make use of a variety of techniques to bring these joints back into their proper position. In addition to traditional techniques, our Aurora chiropractor specializes in a uniquely precise and gentle method known as the Activator Technique. This instrument-assisted, low-force technique makes small but effective adjustments with minimal muscle resistance.
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.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s 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? Dr. Holly Geerson can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.

Auto Accident Rehabilitation
An auto accident can cause all kinds of acute injuries -- some of why may heal improperly and leave you with chronic pain unless you receive prompt treatment for them. Whiplash, vertebral subluxations, herniated discs, pinched nerves, and torn soft tissues can cause symptoms ranging from back or neck pain to loss of muscle function, headaches, and memory problems. Our car crash doctor can identify these injuries through a comprehensive evaluation, even if you haven't experienced any symptoms yet due to the effects of shock. Once our car crash doctor knows exactly how you've been hurt, chiropractic adjustment, acupuncture, and other techniques can help you get back on the road to wellness.
Laser therapy is a remarkable technique for stimulating the healing process and relieving many kinds of pain without drugs. Our Apollo "cold laser"; uses a low-level laser beam to reach through the skin surface and penetrate to deeper tissues. The energy from the laser then triggers the release of ATP, which is used by cells to perform their regenerative processes, for more efficient healing. The warming effect ofthe laser also increases blood flow and fluid transfer to ease inflammation, swelling and pain. We prescribe laser therapy to help patients with everything acute injury recovery to chronic degenerative joint pain.
Our Aurora chiropractor, Dr. Geersen, has extensive experience in using chiropractic care and other treatment methods to address women's healthcare issues. Chiropractors are ideally suited for treating this kinds of conditions because many of them involve impaired nerve function and systemic imbalances. In the case of infertility, for chiropractic care and tritional changes can help remove some of the roadblocks to getting pregnant. Pregnant women who experience low back pain, neck pain, swelling and other discomfort can obtain drug-free relief through gentle, safe chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic methods such as the Activator Technique can also ease menopause symptoms and help senior women remain healthy.
Sports Injury Rehabilitation
Sports injuries can take a variety of forms. In addition to the herniated discs, dislocated joints, whiplash, concussion, ruptured , or other violent acute injuries you may receive in your chosen sport, you may find yourself experiencing chronic strain related to repetitive motion (swinging a racket or club, running, throwing a ball etc.) We can evaluate both your injury and its underlying causes to create a sports injury rehabilitation plan just for you. This multi-modal treatment program can help you overcome pain and other symptoms, rebuild your body, and reduce your ongoing injury risk
Pain can be classified in two major categories: acute and chronic. Acute pain tends to fade as the underlying health problem responds to treatment -- but chronic neck pain, back pain, headaches, muscle pain, or extremity pain can continue for months or even indefinitely. Our Aurora chiropractor can relieve or manage that pain without drugs or surgery. Chiropractic adjustments can often reduce pain by relieving nerve compression and muscle strain. Acupuncture promotes the release of your own painkilling chemicals, endorphins, while also helping to normalize nerve signals. Cold laser therapy can help your body heal itself while also reducing inflammatory pain, while stretches and other corrective exercises can optimize your range of motion and reinforce musculoskeletal support.
