Do you “carry stress” in your neck, shoulders, or back? Most people tend to feel tightness, pain, or discomfort in those locations. As a result, one very common affliction is rounded shoulders. Many activities can lead to poor posture: desk work, driving, and studying are some examples. We can help train your body to assume a less stressful posture!
Even if you don’t suffer from rounded shoulders, prevention is always the best treatment, and we’d love to see you and be your healthy lifestyle resource.
At Atlas Holistic Wellness, we use a team approach with multiple specialists and a wide range of treatment techniques to get results fast. Please, feel free to click on any of the below services to learn a little more about it.
Chiropractic Spinal and Extremity Adjustments
Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy (CMT) is used to help improve and optimize nerve flow, improve joint mobility, and reduce inflammation. By using a variety of techniques tailored for your individual need, our doctors can manipulate the bones to form a more optimal connection. Many patients experience greater flexibility, less pain, new strength, and find daily activities become easier.
Ergonomic and Postural Training
We want you to optimize your body physiology as much as possible, at work, during the day, even while sleeping at night! Let us coach your body and train your muscles to have the best possible posture to optimize muscle efficiency and nerve flow during all aspects of your life.
Custom Fitted Orthotics
Like tires on a car, our feet constantly are working to bear the weight of our body. It’s time to treat them right. Rather than force your feet to comply with a generic insert, allow us to make one that’s custom molded to your feet. Everyone has a different foot structure, so why use a one-shape-fits-all insert? Custom molding provides tailored and individualized support, even greater than other inserts you can buy from the store. Come in for your custom fitting today!
Pediatric, Prenatal, and Postnatal Treatment
Pregnancy is one of the most stressful times for the body, mother and child alike. It is not uncommon for muscles to be stretched, and misalignments to occur. Here, we specialize in prenatal, perinatal, postnatal, and pediatric treatment. This allows for a safer delivery for the mother and baby. Postnatal treatment also ensures that muscles and bones return to their original positioning, allowing for a quicker return to daily life. Pediatric treatment allows for optimal prevention of spinal subluxations by continual alignment of the spine through critical periods of development and growth.
Muscles not only attach to bone, but their connective tissues can also attach to skin and other fascia. Taping utilizes this to an advantage. By either helping or inhibiting muscle by attaching directly to the skin. Taping can prevent injury, aid recovery, stabilize joints, and provide greater muscle efficiency.
Deep Tissue Massage, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, Etc.
These are just a few of the techniques we use to help physically loosen and relax the muscle. This alleviates stress and tension and allows us an easier canvas to manipulate bones or re-train muscles to help better shape posture.
Our feet bear the full force of our body in motion. It’s no wonder that many aches and pains can be attributed to problems that arise in the feet or stride. By analyzing your walking gait, we can optimize the efficiency and of your legs and muscles.
Strengthening the correct muscles can help recovery, prevent injuries, promote good posture, and bring balance to the body. We custom tailor exercises to your individual needs. Whether it’s work or play, strengthening the correct muscles can improve your day.
Allergy and Sinus Adjustments
Living in Central Texas, we face year-round allergies. The bones of the face, namely the maxilla, frontal, and zygomatic can be gently moved and manipulated to maximize air flow and help ease allergy suffering.
