Chiropractic Care

The chiropractic care provided at RWC has a significant impact on the quality of life for the patients it serves. Our chiropractic care takes a holistic approach to health and well-being, including the physical and psychological, and social aspects of life.

Dr. Sheerin and the staff focus on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system and the effects on general health. By restoring normal function to the musculoskeletal system, chiropractic care can significantly relieve pain and symptoms associated with injuries, accidents, stress, poor posture, lack of exercise, and everyday wear and tear.

The primary treatment procedure of a Doctor of Chiropractic is joint/soft manipulation or “chiropractic adjustment.” The purpose of this treatment is to restore joint motion and mobility by applying a controlled force to restricted joints, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tension through a complex link between the musculoskeletal system and the neurological system. Various other soft tissue (muscle, tendon, fascia, ligaments, etc.) manipulation techniques and other treatment modalities (electric muscle stimulation, therapeutic ultrasound, moist heat, cryotherapy, etc.) are also used as indicated by daily evaluation.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is a dynamic profession with an established theoretical and scientific base and widespread clinical applications in restoring, maintaining, and promoting optimal physical function. Physical therapists help individuals maintain, restore, and improve movement, activity, and functioning, thereby enabling optimal performance and enhancing health, well-being, and quality of life. Their services prevent, minimize, or eliminate impairments of body functions and structures, activity limitations, and participation restrictions. Physical therapy is provided for individuals of all ages who have or may develop impairments, activity limitations, and participation restrictions related to:
 (1) Conditions of the musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiovascular, pulmonary, and/or integumentary systems or,
(2) The negative effects attributable to unique personal and environmental factors as they relate to human performance.

Acupuncture

The acupuncture that most Americans are familiar with is one where a needle is inserted into the skin, and it's one of many styles of a tremendously diverse medicine.  We offer the Shakuju style of acupuncture performed by a state-certified Licensed Acupuncturist at our clinic.  This style of therapy is the work of Dr. Kobayashi, from Japan, using a blunt acupuncture needle that is gently tapped on different parts of the abdomen and back, stimulating one's internal energy.

Shakuju Therapy works by using the skin's fascial (connective tissue) network to transmit information.  As an embryo, the skin & brain are formed from the same layer of tissue and maintain this close connection throughout life.  The skin has various receptors that send information to the brain, which processes this and adjusts the body's response. Because Shakuju Therapy works on the skin surface utilizing this signal system, it can affect the entire body.  By contrast, deep needling goes through this therapeutic zone and can lose its systemic effect.

Massage Therapy

The American Massage Therapy Association defines Massage Therapy as the manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons, and ligaments) to enhance a person's health and well-being. There are dozens of massage therapy methods used with differing indications/conditions. Massage Therapy has been shown to accomplish the following:
  • Reduction of muscle tension and stiffness
  • Promotion of faster healing of soft tissue injuries, such as pulled muscles and sprained ligaments, and reduction in pain and swelling related to such injuries
  • Relief of muscle spasms
  • Greater flexibility and range of motion
  • Increase of the ease and efficiency of movement
  • Relief of stress and aide of relaxation
  • Promotion of deeper and easier breathing
  • Improvement of the circulation of blood and movement of lymph
  • Relief of tension-related conditions, such as headaches and eyestrain
  • Reduction in the formation of excessive scar tissue following soft tissue injuries

Sports Injury Care/Rehabilitation

Dr. Sheerin, Dr. Donovan and Brian, our LMT, all have multi-sport backgrounds and extensive experience with athletes involved in numerous sports of all ages. Applying our collective knowledge as clinicians, current research in sports medicine, as well as the staff's personal and often first-hand experience, RWC, can diagnose sports injuries and get you back in the game quickly, safely, and effectively. By treating acute/chronic sports-related injuries and identifying biomechanical issues that may have led to these injuries, we can often return you to your sport stronger than before.

Kinesiotaping®

For more than 25 years, Kinesiotaping® has been breaking new ground in the fields of sports performance, pain management, and physical therapy. The Kinesiotaping® Method is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while allowing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. It successfully treats various orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological, and medical conditions. In injury or overuse, muscular tissue can lose its elasticity (ability to stretch).

The Kinesiotaping® Method is applied over muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, relax overused or tired muscles, and support muscles in movement on a 24-hour-a-day basis. The taping is non-restrictive and allows for a full range of motion. In contrast, more traditional sports tape is wrapped around a joint strictly for stabilization and support during an athletic event. Kinesiotaping® is used to treat anything from headaches to foot problems and everything in between. A few examples include rehabilitation from sports injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back strain/pain (subluxation, herniated disc), knee and shoulder conditions

Custom Home Exercise Plans

During chiropractic or physical therapy care and, most commonly at discharge from either, we provide detailed home exercise programs to continue therapy at home. These exercises are integral in continuing therapy at home and improving strength, flexibility, mobility, and functionality. They are tailored to presenting condition/pathology considering the patient's current state of health, age, strength, past medical history, and current functional capacity. The program reuse allows the patient to communicate directly to the practitioners through the touch of a button by email if they have questions about their program.

Blood Flow Restriction Therapy

Blood flow restriction therapy (BFRT) therapy is a way to increase strength or endurance with light weight or slow movement.  BFRT can help improve strength or endurance without stressing the injured area with heavy loads or prolonged activity.

BFRT utilizes a specialized cuff at the top of the arms or legs to limit arterial flow and slow venous return. The cuff pressure is determined by a special machine that assesses the minimal amount of pressure needed based on your blood pressure.

Research has shown that high-intensity strength training and BFRT can produce comparable results with very different training loads.

An injured patient may not be able to load an injured area sufficiently to stimulate muscle growth.  With BFRT allows the utilization of light loads to stimulate muscle growth while protecting the damaged tissue.  Patients that have a chronic injury or are not very physically active,  the therapy can help “wake up” larger muscle fibers that have gone dormant due to your injury or limited activity.  Stronger muscles = less pain and greater function.

I love all the employees who work at RWC. From Kelly and Dawn who check you in, to Brian who works on patients with massage, to Dr. Sheerin who is a fantastic chiropractor. I have been to many chiropractors over the years, and Dr. Sheerin is the best. He is patient, listens, and has unique gentle adjustments for the most tricky problems. He has helped me with my back, neck, hips and ribs. I would give more than 5 stars if I could! I travel an hour one way to see Dr. Sheerin for adjustments. Worth every mile.Lisa From Pennington.

Dr. Sheerin is an actual doctor and so is Dr. Donovan, the PT. No mumbo jumbo about new age nonsense here, just real techniques to relieve your pain! Everyone here has a wonderful bedside manner. They really do care about their patients. Brian is the massage therapist who also does the soft tissue manipulation before your adjustment and he is genius of massage therapy. You will be happy you went here!
