We provide "head-to-toe" chiropractic care at AHA for all ages. As the only chiropractic office in Spokane specializing and certified in extremity adjusting, our extensive exam looks how the body functions as a whole and is trained to diagnose and adjust the joints beyond the spine (knees, feet, shoulders, elbows, hands, etc,). Stablizing and strengthening exercises will be taught to support your care at home, along with nutritional guidance. Our doctors have years of training and experience in manual spinal adjustment, specialized extremity adjusting, sports medicine, orthotics, nutrition and exercise.
Corrective Exercises and Functional Rehab/Prehab
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique issues, from staying out of pain to increasing performance. 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. Our Certified Athletic Trainer can develop an entire training program for you to do in office and continue to do on your own.
Cold Laser or Low-Level Laser Therapy is used to accelerate healing, mitigate pain, and improve function and range of motion by reducing inflammation. Erchonia Lasers are FDA approved.
Licensed Massage Therapy
Therapeutic massage helps increase circulation, relieves stress and tension, reduces muscle spasm, improves movement of lymph, and increases function of the immune system. Our providers are specially trained in deep tissue, hot stone, lymphatic drainage, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, Swedish, cupping,and pregnancy massage. 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. AHA has male and female massage therapists available.
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?
Why get orthotics from an extremity chiropractor? Custom orthotics are made to the mold of the foot. If that foot has structural issues, which is why most people seek orthotics, than the new orthotic is only holding the foot to it's incorrect place. Our doctors will build you a custom orthotic AFTER your foot is adjusted and put in correct alignment. So now, the orthotic works to help hold your foot in its correct position. These orthotics are created with a state-of-the-art foot scanner that we have at our office, which tells you much more than a mold of your foot (the traditional custom orthotic method).
We offer orthotics that fit into all sorts of shoes, or you can pick from a selection of quality name brand shoes that will have the orthotic built right in!
Spinal & Postural and Ergonomic Screenings
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to 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.
The Graston Technique is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. Dr. Keith Morehouse has been a certified Graston practitioner for many years and has helped patients with open-heart surgery scars, broken tailbone scar tissue and 100's of other scar tissue issues!
Our specially trained physicians utilize a number of corrective techniques to promote correct muscle and joint function, pain relief, and even lymphatic drainage using Kinesio tape.
