Providing Enthusiastic Chiropractic Care
Dr. Kelly Herta has devoted her life to helping those in the Santa Clarita area seeking to improve their health and wellness. Whether you are suffering from a specific ailment or the years are simply taking their toll, Dr. Herta takes a thorough approach to diagnosis and treatment. Instead of treating symptoms, she seeks underlying causes and addresses chronic pain and discomfort at the source. Using her years of training, our Santa Clarita chiropractor can identify the root of the problem and formulate a treatment plan that addresses the individual’s needs.
By using state-of-the-art techniques, Dr. Herta is able to provide spinal correction and adjustments to address a wide variety of complaints. In fact, as chiropractic care continues to be studied, we are able to perfect techniques that are safer and more effective than ever. Fortunately, Dr. Herta is highly trained in these techniques to help relieve back, neck, and head pain, and help patients live a fuller, pain-free life.
Dr. Herta can help you with any of the following conditions:
- Disc Problems
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Joint Dysfunction
- Neck/Back Pain
- Pinched Nerve
- Maintenance Care
The treatments we offer include:
- Spinal Decompression
- High Frequency Ultrasound
- Interferential Electro-Therapy
- Deep Muscle Stimulator
- Electro-Magnetic Field Therapy (EMT)
- Flexion Distraction
- Digital Motion X-Ray
Following your initial consultation, we may find that the pain you are experiencing could be addressed, at least in part, on your own. By strengthening certain targeted muscle groups around the problem areas, you will be working alongside your chiropractor as they work on your correction plan. Frequently, back pain, neck pain, and headaches are the result of muscles and connective tissues being used incorrectly over time. Dr. Herta can help give you targeted exercises and stretches that hold the realigned spine in place, and train you into good practices as you go about your day.
Prenatal & Postnatal Chiropractic Care
A woman’s body undergoes some extraordinary changes while pregnant, but it is no secret that some of those changes can result in fairly extreme discomfort. Fortunately, Dr. Herta is Webster Technique Certified, meaning that she has been specially trained to help alleviate back and pelvic pain in pregnant women. Not only does this mean a more comfortable pregnancy, but also an easier delivery and post-natal experience as well. Dr. Herta has many years of experience in helping pregnant women to manage symptoms during pregnancy and has said that it is one of her favorite groups to work with.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
Even before you find yourself with back or neck pain, going to a chiropractor for “preventative maintenance” is often time well spent. Whether you spend all day on your feet, or all day hunched over a keyboard, there are often things that you can do to prevent damage from repetitive motions or poor posture. A screening with our Santa Clarita chiropractor can help you to identify problem areas before they start, giving you a better chance at a happy, pain-free life.
Lifestyle Advice & Nutritional Counseling
At Unruh Spine Centers, we are always looking to achieve total health and balance for all of our patients. This is why, in addition to chiropractic services, we also offer our patients guidance on less tangible aspects of their lives, which nonetheless have very real consequences on your wellbeing. Dr. Herta can recommend best practices for things such as diet, vitamin supplements, exercise, and overall lifestyle goals. We understand that our patients are people, complex and varied, and that our job is to help them function as well as possible.
More than simply a pleasant relaxation technique, massage therapy serves as a natural way to address musculoskeletal pain. At Unruh Spine Centers, we offer massage therapy services in conjunction with our chiropractic services. These plans are tailored to each individual’s needs. Benefits can include increased blood circulation, relaxation of muscles, and reduction in swelling. Range of motion and shortened recovery time following strain or injury may also occur.
