Chiropractic Care

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. Eva Chiu has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment and pain relief.


Corrective Exercises

We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help with pain relief, 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.


Lifestyle Advice

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.


Nutritional Counseling

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. Eva Chiu can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.


Spinal & Postural Screenings

Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to preventing the need for pain relief, and improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.


Active Release Technique

How do overuse conditions occur?
Over-used muscles (and other soft tissues) change in three important ways:
  • acute conditions (pulls, tears, collisions, etc),
  • accumulation of small tears (micro-trauma)
  • not getting enough oxygen (hypoxia).
Each of these factors can cause your body to produce tough, dense scar tissue in the affected area. This scar tissue binds up and ties down tissues that need to move freely. As scar tissue builds up, muscles become shorter and weaker, tension on tendons causes tendonitis, and nerves can become trapped. This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and pain. If a nerve is trapped you may also feel tingling, numbness, and weakness.
 
What is an ART treatment like?
Every ART session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. Dr. Eva Chiu uses her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.
 
These treatment protocols - over 500 specific moves - are unique to ART. They allow doctors to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient. ART is not a cookie-cutter approach.

Family Care

At Bayside Chiropractic, we believe that a family that gets adjusted together grows together!The way this works is simple: biologically, there is a resonance between family members so a family who has stress removed from their body regularly through chiropractic adjustments increases its collective ability to fend off colds or flus, relate together more intimately (really get one another's stories), and make better decisions together as a family unit (yes, we all want to go to the movies together tonight!).Just think of what a difference our communities would make if they're comprised of families functioning at their optimum. It's bigger than we can imagine!We look forward to caring for your entire family.


Pregnancy

Chiropractic care prior to conception can help promote a healthy menstrual cycle and optimal uterine function. It also prepares the body to be structurally strong, to be more flexible and to have the ability to maintain good balance.

Chiropractic care during pregnancy can help maintain proper alignment, promote flexibility, and maintain homeostasis. When a mother's body and nervous system are functioning at an optimal level, the baby can grow comfortably and obtain the ideal birthing position.

With chiropractic care, the labor and delivery will most often flow easily and smoothly and will be likely to require less medical intervention. In addition, a proper working nervous system allows for well timed contractions that seem to help move the baby along the birthing canal. Many of Dr. Chiu's patients often report shorter, more pleasant deliveries when they receive chiropractic care.


Pediatric

Why do children need chiropractic care?

Many spinal problems seen in adults begin as early as birth. Your chiropractor will check the child's spine for misalignments that impair nervous system function therefore affecting overall body fucntion. Parents seek chiropractic care for conditions such as colic, ear infections, asthma, allergies and headaches (to name a few) because they have heard from other parents that chiropractic care can help.

Sports Injury

The desire to get back into sports is the reason why many athletes seek chiropractic care. Your body is like a machine, if you are misaligned your muscles will have to work harder and there will be more wear and wear on your joints. This translates to increased repetitive injuries and slower recovery time. Chiropractic care can incease your recovery rate and enhance biomechanical efficiency


Motor Vehicle Injury

Whiplash injuries are complex and serious health concerns for anyone involved in an automobile accident. It is also one of the most neglected, misunderstood and mistreated conditions you can have. As anyone who has had the misfortune of being taken to a local emergency room following a car accident knows, unless you have a broken bone or are bleeding, you were likely told that you would be fine in a few weeks. "If your pain persists, apply heat". Drugs for pain to relax damage muscles are commonly prescribed.This advice is extremely poor based on research comparing chiropractic treatment with medical treatment. If you have suffered a whiplash type injury, you should know that without proper treatment, your injury may be with you the rest of your life. Chiropractic care focuses on the cause of the problem and not just the symptoms. The spine is like a machine with moving parts. If the parts don't fit together right, they will wear out very quickly. Spinal degeneration, osteoarthritis and other problems can then develop over time. If we can get to the spine right after the injury, then there will not be long term degeneration and other lingering effects. Dr. Eva Chiu Will discuss a plan to realign and strengthen your spine.


Wellness

Wellness is by far the most important aspect of chiropractic care. It is utilizing the chiropractic expertise to find subluxations and removing the interference it poses on your nervous system. Routine chiropractic care helps to maintain joint health, prevents aches and pains so you can continue doing the things you enjoy.
