Welcome to the Optimal Health Center new patient center!
Arriving at a doctors office for the first time can be a nerve racking experience. Paperwork to fill out, new faces and names to learn, and getting to know your way around the office; this can hit the senses all the at same time causing overload.
In contrast, at Optimal Health Center our aim is to remove any stressor causing unnessesary tension and make you feel comfortable. In this area of the website you will be able to take care of items necessary for your visit prior to arriving, in the comfort of your home.
At Optimal Health 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 Overland Park office.
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" 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. Optimal Health Center's doctors have years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
With enzyme therapy, our goal is not to treat symptoms but to locate the source of stress on your body. With the Loomis system of Enzyme Replacement our doctors examine over 43 organ stress points to find your own sources of stress. Our doctors then develop a program that is specifically designed around your particular needs. We provide specific recommendations on enzyme supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patients' return to optimal health.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them 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 by as much as 30-40%. 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 nutritional changes. Making lifestyle changes is difficult and the key to success is a knowledgeable support system. Our doctors are well versed in the Paleo Lifestyle because not only have they researched it they live it too! We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
