Our Chiropractic Treatments

At Arbor Vitae Wellness Center, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. We care for patients of all ages from children to senior citizens. Staying healthy, naturally, is not limited to any age group, and at Arbor Vitae Wellness Center we are here to help clients from all walks of life.

Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Santa Monica office.

Chiropractic Care

We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing state-of-the-art chiropractic techniques. These newer correction methods are safer, more comfortable, and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Magdy Guirguis, who has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment, specializes in sports injury, force and non-force chiropractic manipulation, flexion/distraction decompression, chiropractic for children, and preventative spinal care. 

Chiropractic Corrective Exercisesservices_exercise

Our chiropractic professionals come up with individualized exercise plans that are meant to correct each of our clients’ own specific conditions. These exercises require no special equipment and can easily be performed at one’s own residence to make their spinal corrective therapy far more effective. It’s also important to note that skeletal conditions aren’t the only problem faced by those with misalignment problems. A person’s connective tissues and even muscles can be injured by these conditions as well. The stretches and exercises that we teach are meant to complement your therapy and help you reach your peak condition quickly.

Lifestyle Adviceservices_lifestyle

We know that if we only performed alignment treatments to our patients, their issues would only be receiving a temporary fix. This is why we provide coaching for our patients on certain lifestyle choices that they should perform differently or cut out altogether. Our goal isn’t simply pain management; it’s to ensure that all of our patients have a life that they are both happy and content with. Focusing on just the problem avoids the bigger picture (ie. you can’t see the forest for the trees). This is why we treat each of our patients as a whole being and create a collaborative effort between our doctors and patients to ensure the maximum effective treatment.

Spinal & Postural Screenings services_posture

Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information. Improper joint and muscle alignment can lead to long-term spinal injuries — and poor health conditions in general. Regular chiropractic treatment can help with pain, relieve stress, and aid in sleep. We provide complementary spinal screening for offices, schools, and sports organizations. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
