Chiropractic CareWe 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. Greg Carter has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment and non-spinal extremity adjustments (ankles, knees, wrists, elbows etc.).
Corrective ExercisesWe 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.
Lifestyle AdviceWe 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 of 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 AssessmentWe 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. Greg Carter can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
PhysiotherapyTo complement and enhance the healing effects of Dr. Carter's specific Chiropractic manipulative treatment, we at Gregory T. Carter, D.C., P.A. also provide the following physiological therapeutic procedures:
- Interferential electrical muscle stimulation
- Mechanical traction
- Moist heat therapy
- Work hardening rehabilitation program
- Manual Therapy
Applied Kinesiology is the science, art and philosophy of the optimal function of the human body. We are physical, chemical and mental / emotional beings. In a nut shell Applied Kinesiology is the application of the study of muscles, nerve function, organ function, cerebral spinal fluid dynamics, biochemistry, and acupuncture all combined into one technique. Applied Kinesiologists are regarded as the top of the top in the Chiropractic profession. Many Applied Kinesiologists treat professional athletes. Jeff Spencer D.C. is the personal applied kinesiologist to Lance Armstrong elite cyclist. Evan Mladdenoff D.C. is the team chiropractor to the Kansas City Chiefs.
The best diagnosis and treatment can be found through the principles of Applied Kinesiology.
ALLERGIES AS A CAUSE OF YOUR ILLNESS
We now know that most illnesses (i.e.headaches, back aches, joint pains, addiction, PMS, indigestion, cough, body aches, etc.) are caused by undiagnosed allergies. When left untreated, allergies can become serious life threatening illnesses. Please read "Say Goodbye To Illness" by Devi S. Nambudripad, M.D. (WI), D.C., L.Ac., Ph.D. (acu) to find the cause of your illnesses.
The brain provides warnings to the body whenever blockages occur within the energy pathways. These warnings include illness, pain, inflammation, fever, heart attacks, strokes, abnormal growths, tumors, and various physical, physiological and psychological discomforts. If the symptoms are minor, blockages are minor. If the symptoms are major, blockages are major. Minor blockages can be unblocked easily, whereas major blockages take a long time to unblock.
Dr. Nambudripad's discovery, NAETÂ®, is an innovative and completely natural method for regaining better health with often permanent freedom from allergies and the diseases arising from those allergens.
The BioSET® SystemIn an effort to find relief for her own food sensitivities, Dr. Cutler, D.C., began researching and taking enzyme supplements more than 20 years ago. She found enzyme therapy to be so effective that she began recommending it to her patients. As her practice grew, Dr. Cutler explored other therapeutic procedures and products to help ease the food sensitivities she and her patients shared. Based on her broad experience with sensitivity therapies in her practice, and with her desire to clear patients of their food sensitivities, Dr. Cutler created the BioSET® System. Developed in more than 25 years of clinical practice, the BioSET® System offers the opportunity to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Integrating traditional Chinese medicine and acupressure, along with a contemporary understanding of applied immunology and nutrition, the BioSET® System is simple and easy to facilitate.
The BioSET® System employs three basic treatments: organ-specific detoxification, enzyme therapy, and desensitization.
- Organ-specific detoxification: Stimulates the release of accumulated toxins from organs and tissues and promotes elimination from the body through the use of homeopathics.
- Enzyme therapy: Facilitates good digestion and a healthful inflammatory response to correct nutritional deficiencies and other systemic imbalances through the therapeutic use of vegetarian enzyme supplements.
- Sensitivity desensitization: Bioenergetic evaluation of organ stress and nutritional status followed by the elimination of allergic responses and sensitivities through a revolutionary, noninvasive technique based on acupressure meridians and immunology.
NUTRITION RESPONSE TESTING (NRT)Your body has been pre-programmed to sustain life. Each cell, body part, organ and energy system is genetically encoded to work for continued survival of the organism. Your brain acts as a giant "switchboard" to channel energy into action to maintain body function. Every symptom in your body constitutes a signala warning that something is not quite right.
The autonomic nervous system (ANS) is the part of the nervous system that we cannot control with our mind. The ANS regulates breathing, heart rate, digestion, immune function, sleep patterns, hormone regulation, blood pressure, blood sugar levels, tissue regeneration, and liver and kidney detoxification.
NRT grew out of the importance of detecting and correcting problems of the autonomic nervous system, as well as all other organs of the body. NRT allows the practitioner to restore the self-regulating mechanisms of the body, allowing the patient to return to a state of health.
"Nutrition Response Testing is a medical muscle testing system grounded in solid science. It is today probably the fastest and least invasive way to accurately detect food allergies, geopathic and biophysical stress, interference fields, stressed organs and structures, emotional blocks, heavy metal toxicity, dental problems, environmental toxicity and more."Symptoms leading to these imbalances are theoretically caused by 7 common factors. These include: undiagnosed food allergies, heavy metal toxicity, petroleum chemical toxicity, chronic unresolved infections and scars, temporamandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ), unresolved psychological stress, and electromagnetic stress. NRT is often effective where other treatments fail and is effective for most chronic and acute illnesses. These include but are not limited to: allergies, chronic pain, chronic infections, immune problems, depression, anxiety, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, pre-menstrual syndrome, menopause problems, cancer, diabetes, seizure disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, sinusitis, digestive problems and many others.

NRT is taught by it's developers Dr. Freddie Ulan, DC and Dr. Lester Bryman, DC and a staff of certified advanced clinical practicioners. Most of the doctors using NRT are Naturopathic physicians, Medical Doctors, Doctors of Orthopedics, Chiropractors, Acupuncturists or Dentists.
"N.R.T. enables us to test each patient at a core level and identify the real causes of autonomic dis-regulation. We can now correct the root of the problem using time tested nutritional protocols that are safe, sensible and economic, which produce the results we have always felt were possible for our patients."
