Ocean View Chiropractic offers a wide variety of chiropractic services to both alleviate pain and improve health. Chiropractic care is used to relieve pressure which has affected the nervous system. The pressure is caused by subluxations or misalignments of the vertebrae of the spine. This nervous system pressure can manifest itself in many forms. This pressure from misalignment of the spine can manifest as pain in the neck, back or arms, and legs, or dysfunction in the muscles, organs, or nervous system.
At Ocean View Chiropractic, we utilize a wide variety of chiropractic techniques and services based on the individual needs of each patient to ensure maximum care is provided. We start this process by first evaluating the patient to find out their areas of concern and how this is affecting their daily life. From there we will compile all of the results from that examination in order to create a customized treatment plan. A follow-up visit will provide an opportunity to go over these results in detail with the patient. This way they understand not only the severity of their condition but also the steps that need to be made to restore their health. After the patient is well informed they can begin working with the doctor and the therapists to begin the process of getting out of pain and returning to a life of health with decreased pain and improved nerve function.
Dr. Michael Connelly offers a wide variety of adjustment techniques to correct subluxations without making a patient feel uncomfortable. Our very capable staff of therapists work on strained muscles to alleviate pain and discomfort and begin to rebuild muscle strength, improving balance and coordination to greatly increase a patient’s overall experience at Ocean View Chiropractic.

Following is a list of the most common services Ocean View Chiropractic has to offer, there are many other services not listed. Patient services vary based on patients’ specific conditions and needs.
We offer a complete nervous system examination which includes chiropractic, orthopedic, and neurological testing. We do a full spinal evaluation checking for nervous system interference in the form of subluxations. This evaluation includes checking for decreased reflexes and range of motion and addressing areas of pain or lack of function. We then take the results of these tests and compile them into a patient-friendly, easy to understand report of findings and present it to you.
We offer two different nervous system scans of the full spine. A rolling thermal scan which looks at the relative temperature of the nerves coming off of the spine. The rolling thermal scan shows interference of the nerves that control your organs. The other is a surface EMG scan which measures the electrical activity of your muscles. The more your muscles contract, the more electrical activity will register. This measured amount of muscle spasm or weakness indicates stress to your nervous system caused by subluxations.
A chiropractic adjustment is a procedure in which a trained specialist or chiropractor uses their hands to administer a small controlled impulse to a spinal joint. Chiropractors use these chiropractic adjustments, also known as spinal manipulations, to correct the structural alignment of the spine. The controlled spinal manipulations from a chiropractor improve your body’s physical function by relieving pressure on the nervous system.
Deep tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscles and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity, such as athletes, and patients who have sustained a physical injury.
Manual therapy is a physical treatment primarily used to treat musculoskeletal pain and disability. It most commonly includes kneading and manipulation of the muscles, joint mobilization, manual lymphatic drainage, and physiotherapy. It is normally done in correlation with massage therapy and is used to strengthen muscles, increase range of motion, and promote circulation.
