We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Dr. Uchenna Onyeani has years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.
Chiropractic care is not limited to a particular type of person or a particular type of pain. Come in today to find out more about specific chiropractic care for children and pregnant women.
A subluxation is a misalignment of a bone in relation to the adjacent joint space. So for instance, a vertebral subluxation occurs when a vertebra is misaligned in relation to the joint space above or below it. Most of us walk around with subluxations everyday, but do not realize it because they are relatively painless. However, depending on the severity of a particular spinal subluxation, inflammation can occur which can have a negative impact on our nervous system and our body as a whole. This can result in conditions including headaches, neck/low back discomfort, numbness/tingling, and muscle tightness to name a few. Here at The Wellness Group of America, we utilize The Insight Thermal Scanning System. This instrument is designed to measure skin temperature differentials caused by inflammation to help us determine where you might have subluxations, allowing us to correct any dysfunction in the body with the proper treatment plan.
Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!
At The Wellness Group of America, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced therapist will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
A Wellness Body Wrap is a technique exclusive to The Wellness Group of America using mud and infrared heat to promote detoxification, breakdown of fatty tissue, increased metabolism, and improved circulation. It is beneficial to a health conscious individual, male or female, with an active lifestyle looking to remove toxins from the body and improve overall health. The wellness wrap helps to smooth, tighten and soften the skin while eliminating fluid retention through a process known as detoxification.
Detoxification is the physiological removal of toxic substances from a living organism, which allows the body to return to homeostasis or an even normal balance. With the strenuous wear and tear we all go through on a daily basis, there are a number of ways in which the body can become stressed, causing a buildup of toxins in the body. These toxins can trigger an inflammatory response in the body. A wellness body wrap can take away these inflammatory triggers and reduce inflammation in the body.
Each session, which lasts about an hour, will have you covered in a special detox mud while laying in an infrared suit as the infrared heat penetrates deep under your skin, decreasing calories and removing harmful toxins. It is designed to make you sweat and it is very important to replenish your body with water once you are done. You will also receive a protein massage which helps to tighten your skin. For better results, it is recommended that you do at least 8-10 sessions.
Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.

What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our Union chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your spinal health is no exception. Posture and spinal screenings by a trained and experienced chiropractor such as Dr. Uchenna Onyeani can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being. In order to help the township of Union and the surrounding townships and communities, we provide screenings at community events and health fairs. We also perform scoliosis screenings at local schools and host wellness workshops to help empower students, faculty, and staff when it comes to proper body mechanics, spinal posture, and improving overall health. Contact us today at 908-258-7014 to arrange a screening at your school, community event or health fair. For local library administrators and school faculty members, if you are interested in hosting a wellness workshop at your school or local library, please call us or email The Wellness Group of America.
