Power Plate machines use the principles of Acceleration Training™ to stimulate the
body’s natural response to vibration. These vibrations transmit waves of energy throughout
the body, activating muscle contractions between 25 and 50 times per second, enhancing
overall performance in relatively brief sessions (as little as 5-10 minutes).
The doctors at Healing Hands Wellness & Chiropractic Center use a digital foot scanner
to analyze foot biomechanics. This scan along with a physical exam can identify if
custom foot orthotics are recommended. If orthotics are needed, a mold of the foot
is taken to build the custom orthotics. These foot orthotics are scientifically designed
for an individual's unique postural problems and take into account your lifestyle,
age, weight and activity level. A custom orthotic allows proper motion of the feet
and surrounding soft tissues while standing or moving. By balancing your feet, orthotics
help improve your posture, enhance your body’s performance and efficiency, reduce
pain and contribute to your total body wellness.
Manual therapy includes techniques such as trigger point therapy, massage therapy,

to a patient’s body.

habits for optimum function on all levels – physical, mental, social and spiritual.
Is wellness when you feel good or do not have any symptoms? No! Unfortunately,
many people are under the misconception that health or being well is merely the absence
of pain or symptoms. In reality, health and wellness encompass having 100% function
of your body, 100% of the time. Don’t gauge your health off symptoms alone! Take
the appropriate preventative measures to make sure that those pesky problems never
Many problems seen in adulthood actually begin in childhood. The birth process may
be one of the most traumatic events of our lives. Even though it is a natural process,
being born does stress the still-developing spine. Irritation to the nervous system
can cause newborn health complaints such as colic, unexplained crying, poor appetite
and breathing problems. As a child continues to grow, they will learn such things
as supporting their head, sitting, crawling and walking. Regular chiropractic visits
are very beneficial during this time to ensure proper development of the natural
spinal curves. As children grow older, spinal stress can occur from falls while
learning to sit and walk as well as from participation in contact sports or one-sided
Chiropractic treatment and techniques are modified to fit a child’s size, weight
and unique history of stresses that are uncovered during an initial consultation
and examination. Regular chiropractic visits can help your child develop into a
happier and healthier adult.
At Healing Hands Wellness & Chiropractic Center, Dr. Milosavljevic and Dr. Wiewel
provide their patients with education throughout treatment. Education is extremely

the informed patient will possess the necessary tools to achieve their health goals
and maintain wellness once it is reached.
Patient education includes the teaching of home stretching and strengthening techniques
as well as advice on the proper ways of performing activities for daily living. For
example, the doctors spend time educating their patients on the proper ways of lifting,
bending and twisting. Other areas of education include useful tips on ways to complete
household chores with less spinal stress, proper shoe selection, the proper sleeping
position and much more.
