At Melilli Chiropractic & Rehab Center, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Clearwater office.
We 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. Steve Melilli has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
To complement and enhance the healing effects of Dr. Melilli's specific Chiropractic adjustment treatment, we at Melilli Chiropractic & Rehab Center also provide the following physiological therapeutic procedures:
- Electrical muscle stimulation
- Moist heat therapy
- Rehabilitation program
All of our Licensed Massage Therapist have completed specialized training in anatomy, physiology, and the basic types of massage. Massage Therapy has many therapeutic benefits, such as reducing stress and tension, improving flexibility, increasing endorphins, improving circulation problems, and alleviating chronic and temporary pain.
We 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.
We 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 our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
Pre and Post-Operative Rehabilitation
We have an Athletic Trainer who is able to teach our patients specific exercises designed to strengthen muscles before patient has surgery. After surgery, our team helps get our patients back to their daily activities by helping to minimize the swelling and pain, and to regain your strength and range of motion/flexibility lost with rehabilitative exercises.
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. Dr. Melilli can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
Whole Body Vibration Therapy
Developed for astronauts and used by professional and Olympic athletes, Whole Body Vibration therapy provides therapeutic treatment for a number of health conditions. Hundreds of clinical studies have been done with vibration therapy to support its use in the health community. Vibrations stimulate muscles to contract throughout the body. These muscles can contract up to 50 times per second and 3,000 times per minute, which cause amazing things to happen all the way down to the cellular level.
