Chiropractic Care

Adjusting womans backMost people originally seek care at East Bentleigh Health Group because of neck or back pain, or some type of acute injury. And chiropractic is excellent at correcting the subluxations of the spine that result in nervous system interference and ultimately, pain and dysfunction.

But the benefits of chiropractic care often go far beyond neck and back pain relief. Our lives are more stressful than ever before, and our bodies store all that stress—whether chemical, physical or emotional—in the nervous system. One of the results is that we get stuck in the “fight or flight” mode of the sympathetic nervous system.

Once the initial threat or stress has passed, our bodies are meant to return to the parasympathetic state. This is the “rest/digest” state that allows our bodies to heal and replenish. Because stress in our world is non-stop, many times patients’ bodies never return to this healing state.

Chiropractic may ease sympathetic dominance, so your body can rest, heal and relax—helping with many chronic issues, including postural problems, neck or back pain, disc issues and joint pain.

Our Approach to Care

Chiropractor Dr Anthony Papaleo will explain the details to you so you understand how your body got into its current state, and what’s necessary to correct it. His decades of clinical experience allow him to locate subluxations and design a care plan to correct them.

We offer a variety of adjusting techniques, including low-force techniques for children, the elderly and anyone who prefers them. Anthony uses Applied Kinesiology (AK) muscle testing to locate subluxations as well as to check for things like food intolerances and other stressors on the body.

He also offers nutritional advice to help reduce inflammation and irritation to the gut or joints, and may recommend supplements to help you get the most from your adjustments.
