Cardinal Physical Medicine’s Chiropractic Services
Digital X-Rays: At Cardinal Physical Medicine, we pride ourselves on running one of the most state-of-the-art chiropractic practices in the St. Peter’s area. At Dr. Blalock’s discretion, many of our visits begin with on-site digital x-rays. Thanks to our cutting-edge equipment, our physicians are able to see sharp and clear images of your spinal column, which allows for better diagnosis of any issues.
Efficient Spinal Posture Correction: This type of treatment consists of a series of spinal adjustments and muscle manipulation to correct issues with posture, including scoliosis, pelvic un-leveling, and Forward Head Posture, also called “Text Neck” thanks to its correlation to heavy usage of smartphones and tablets.
Traditional Adjustments: Traditional adjustments are what most people imagine when picturing their time at a chiropractor’s office. We use only extensively researched methods that have proven results. If this is your first adjustment, Dr. Blalock will be sure to explain every step to ensure you are comfortable.
Whiplash and Auto Accident Treatment: Seeking chiropractic help after an auto accident is essential to making a full recovery. Our treatments for whiplash and auto accident recovery are performed by highly trained and experienced staff, and include gentle chiropractic adjustments, spinal decompression, massage therapy, among others.
Spinal Decompression: A compressed spine can cause severe lower back pain and even lead to a compression factor. By using innovative equipment, spinal decompression therapy can help to relieve pressure and allow for proper blood flow through the spinal column which encourages healing.
TMJ and Orofacial Pain Relief: TMJ is most commonly associated with “lockjaw,” but also includes several other factors like painful popping when opening or closing the mouth, neck or shoulder pain, misalignment of upper and lower teeth, and headaches, dizziness, or hearing problems. Chiropractic treatment for TMJ can help correct misalignments in the spine and reposition the jaw.
Custom Foot Orthotics: Our custom foot orthotics (shoe inserts) help to adjust your step and promote long-term health of your ankles, knees, hips, and back. Non-customized shoe inserts may temporarily alleviate pain, but they are not designed to promote joint health and contour to your unique bone structure like custom orthotics will.
