At DeSesa Chiropractic Clinic, 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 Valencia office.
For the runner who is looking to plateau, the newbie, or the one who simply wants to do away with recurring injuries, gait analysis is the way to go. Gait analysis looks at the runner’s stride and aims to correct bad habits and improve overall performance. Dr. De Sesa will test runners’ strength and flexibility; then review their stride walking and running on a treadmill. A videotaped analysis helps to identify areas of imbalance due to muscle weakness or tension. Consultations are always free. The actual analysis takes just 30 minutes.
Runners, and athletes alike, can benefit from instrument assisted, soft tissue mobilization (IASTM). Dr. De Sesa uses the Rock Blade tools to analyze areas of injury and to break down scarring and adhesions from old injuries. The arms, legs, and back are the most common areas where recovery is needed. The Rock Blade tool is extremely sensitive and allows Dr. De Sesa to easily assess for soft tissue restrictions and then to provide an alternative method to relieve areas of tightness. Treatments take 30 seconds to three minutes and patients should feel improvement in six to 10 treatments.
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. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. De Sesa has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment. His techniques include Diversified, Cox Flexion Distraction, Chiropractic Biophysics, and Drop Table.
In-office Exercise Stations
In 2014, Dr. De Sesa reconfigured his patient space to add seven new exercise stations. When clients visit the office, they learn which exercises to complete to optimize their spinal health. The stations take anywhere from 1-20 minutes.
- At station #1, patients can use a wobble chair for up to six different warm-up exercises that mostly benefit the lower back.
- Station #2 (spinal molding) is a passive exercise for anyone who needs to restore the proper spinal curve.
- Station #3 (cervical traction) is for curve and disk-height restoration due to wear-and-tear.
- At station #4, the Vibrational Plate incorporates whole body vibrations that cause muscle fibers to contract, which in turn rapidly improve flexibility and strength.
- Clients exercise with the fit ball to improve lower back and mid-back at station #5.
- Station #6 incorporates Rapid Release Therapy, which uses a high-speed percussion that breaks up brittle scar tissue while passing harmlessly through healthy scar tissue. In just 2-5 minutes, patients can feel relief that lasts days or even weeks.
- The MedLight at station #7 uses Near-Infrared energy to reduce pain and promote blood flow. It is frequently used for micro injuries in the shoulders, knees and ankles.
Free Health Lectures
Dr. De Sesa offers free community health lectures at any workplace or organization meeting in the SCV. The lectures usually last 45-60 minutes and are on a variety of topics that include headaches, healthy families, building a healthy immune system, eating for maximum performance, beating stress, making permanent changes, getting proper sleep, staying fit while you sit, women’s health, carpal tunnel syndrome, and living to 100. To schedule an event, contact Jaci at inspired4optimalhealthATgmail.com.
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 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 our patient is a whole person, and help 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? Dr. De Sesa can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
