At Evolve Integrative Health, we strive to provide the finest, most up-to-date evidence-based acupuncture and chiropractic care to our patients for their wellness. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Anaheim Hills office.
We provide spinal corrections utilizing gentle chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. We offer traditional chiropractic spinal manipulations as well as non-force/non-cavitation techniques, including activator, flexion-distraction spinal decompression, and drop-table techniques. These correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Kelvin Yoo, D.C., C.M.C. has years of training and experience in variety of spinal manipulation/adjustment techniques.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises 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 body function and decrease pain. 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 not only decrease in usage of medications and invasive procedures, but also to help your body stay in balance and in health.
Throughout one’s pregnancy, there may be pain and/or discomfort in the back and neck due to the ligaments and joints loosening up. Utilizing acupuncture and chiropractic care can help decrease the discomfort of the ligaments and muscles and promote health throughout your pregnancy and facilitate the birth.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently so that they don’t aggravate their particular health challenge. We also provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient ́s return to optimal health. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle. Kelvin Yoo, D.C., C.M.E. can provide a structured lifestyle and/or nutritional program based on your individual needs. We recognize that each patient is a whole person, and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborative effort between our professionals and our patients.
We utilize cold laser therapy to help aid in tissue repair and relief from pain and inflammation. Cold laser therapy uses low wavelengths of light targeted towards your body’s tissue to alleviate pain caused by injury or aging and accelerate the healing process.
Muscle stimulation therapy, or e-Stim, is a therapeutic treatment that applies electrical stimulation to treat pain and muscle spasms. At Evolve Integrative Health we use this therapy in conjunction witgh chiropractic and acupuncture treatments to help decrease pain, build strength, and prevent atrophy in patients with muscle injuries.
We offer soft-tissue manipulation therapy called myofascial release that is used for treating skeletal muscle immobility and muscle pain. Myofascial release therapy is a hands-on treatment that utilizes gentle, sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to relax contracted muscles, improve blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulates the stretch reflex in muscles.
At Evolve Integrative Health we use non surgical spinal decompression therapy to help treat neck pain, back pain, sciatica (radiculopathy), bulging or herniated discs, worn spinal joints, pinched nerve, and injured or diseased spinal nerve roots. Spinal decompression gently stretches the spine to change the force and position of the spine, creating negative intradiscal pressure and create increased neuroforaminal space for relief of pinched nerve. By making this change, pressure is removed from the spinal discs, and bulging or herniated discs may retract.
Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
Therapeutic ultrasound uses sound waves above the range of human hearing to interact with tissues in the body that are either modified or destroyed. It creates a deep heat and increases the blood flow to the area being treated to help reduce local swelling and chronic inflammation.
The use of massage for trigger point therapy on a regular basis can help naturally manage pain and stress from chronic injuries. Pressure is applied to a trigger point long enough to release and relax the muscle. This increases blood flow to the muscle to allow normalization and bring it back to a health state.
