Lockwood Chiropractic Clinic and Bel-Red Massage Center is your home for therapeutic chiropractic care in Bellevue, Factoria, Redmond and the surrounding communities. Since 1992, our Bellevue chiropractor, Dr. Mark Lockwood, has used his skills and experience in spinal manipulation and holistic health to help patients who are experiencing back pain, neck pain or some other type of pain due to a health condition, a car accident injury or a personal injury. We want you to experience the pain relief our care can provide, but also want to educate you about the benefits of seeking care from a chiropractor as a foundation for optimal health.
Chiropractic care is sought after by patients because of its natural approach to pain management and healthcare. We take a comprehensive approach to healthcare, which focuses on how the spine and neuromuscular system are connected to all of your organs. Your body can quickly heal and restore itself when it has a healthy spine and properly functioning nervous system. Sometimes this ability is affected by outside events such as a car accident injury or personal injury which can shift the spine out of alignment and interfere with your nervous system's proper functioning. The vertebra in your spine can become limited in motion or a herniated disc may start causing pressure on nerve endings, leading pain, numbness and loss of function.
Our Bellevue chiropractor provides customized treatments for patients with back pain, neck pain, whiplash, or other problems caused by a car accident injury. On your initial visit, he performs a thorough examination to see how the injury affected your spine and nervous system. Then he develops a personalized treatment plan to help restore your mobility and full functioning. By observing any signs of pain, swelling, tingling, tenderness, or numbness, he can determine which areas of your body need the most immediate attention.
The fundamental care our chiropractor provides is a spinal adjustment to return your spine to normal alignment and restore full motion, while also relieving pressure on the nerves which may be causing your pain. If you're suffering from a herniated disc he may use spinal decompression to alleviate the pressure it is placing on spinal nerves. Spinal decompression gently stretches injured discs to create a vacuum which then returns the herniation to its proper location while simultaneously drawing in healing nutrients.
Once your spinal column and nervous system are functioning more effectively Dr. Lockwood will prescribe our complementary therapies. He utilizes acupuncture to unblock the flow of healing energies or he will work with you to improve muscle strength through physical therapy. He also provides nutrition counseling and lifestyle advice to help prevent future injury. Many of our patients continue seeing Dr. Lockwood as part of a preventative healthcare routine, to keep their bodies functioning at optimum levels.
