Chiropractic Adjustments

Literally means practice with the hands. We take a very “hands on” approach to our patients.

We believe that Chiropractic is still an art of teaching the body proper position to heal at its very best capability at all ages of life. Through manipulation of the spine and other joints we can correct imbalances. These imbalances are there for a reason though. This is usually due to either too much tension in an area or instability in a region (not enough strength). At Infinite Wellness we want to teach your body, utilizing corrective exercise, how to hold your adjustments. This way you are not dependent on us for constant repetitive correction over and over for years because of the same problem. We don’t sell you Chiropractic for 20 or 30 visits at a time, because we take an individual approach to each patient to help correct imbalances as quickly and efficiently as possible. We take our profession very seriously and want you to trust us to improve your health, not just maintain poor health. We also no longer participate with insurance for that very reason. Insurance reimbursement should not dictate how and how often you are cared for. We are different and are proud of it. Dr. Glen has been providing Chiropractic, Acupuncture, Exercises, and Weight Management training for over 25 years now. We are not new at this, but wish to shed new light on health management and medical avoidance. Dr. Glen is a convert to alternative practice as he was a pre-medical student in undergrad. He has done surgical rounds and studied most surgical procedures that are commonly being performed. He has extensive knowledge pertaining to what can be done to avoid many surgeries and even what can be done following any necessary surgeries.

We also understand genetics! Quite well, actually. Dr. Glen spent a year doing genetic research during his final year of undergraduate and is even published as a research scientist in a genetic study. So we understand your body and its capabilities and limitations very well.

We care very much for you, the patient. Come see the difference!

Corrective Exercises

Corrective exercises are the use of bodily movements and/or postures to restore desirable changes in diseased or injured tissues. The corrective exercises are movement strategies that minimize or eliminate compensation. Corrective exercises should precede more integrated exercises, because they can cue the patient’s motor system to respond in a more desirable way and assist in removing or improving biomechanical constraints.

Weight Loss  Raleigh, NC

Weight Loss

Dr. Glen has spent many years researching and learning about the very best ways to correct and maintain a healthy metabolism. Weight loss is never “easy”, but with knowledge everyone can gain control of and assist your metabolism to make changes. This is a permanent kind of weight loss. If you’re tired of yo-yo dieting and Carbohydrate deficient solutions, too few calories and starving weight off with no permanent results, then give us a call to see when our next seminar is.

Acupuncture

I’m sure you have asked the question “What is Acupuncture?” or at least “What is it good for?”

At Infinite Wellness we are classically trained, meaning that we practice Japanese style acupuncture. This is somewhat different from many of the acupuncturists around the area. They are using an American style of acupuncture. Needle insertion depth is different for us and we use many different lengths of needles based on the size, area, and need of each patient. All of our needles are copper wound handles, not plastic. We believe that the body is very conductive so we spare no expense and only use needles that come from China.

This is NOT Dry Needling! Please do not confuse the two. Acupuncture treats energy channels known as meridians and the balance of energy flow within those meridians. We use points to effectively change energy to a region or an entire system (like the endocrine system). This is one of our specialties. It is very beneficial for Thyroid dysfunction, hormone disruption, fatigue and weight gain. It addresses many of the hormone systems in the body. We are also VERY successful with fertility issues. We have helped many moms with pregnancy, issues of hormone imbalance following miscarriage, and even hormone changes into menopause. Acupuncture is very good for correcting gastrointestinal issues like Crohn’s disease, Colitis, IBS and constipation. Acupuncture is also great for reducing stress and anxiety. We in fact also treat younger children with ADHD and irritability and anger management. Our photos show one of our favorite 11 year olds “CJ”. He likes being our poster guy for acupuncture and wants kids to know that it doesn’t hurt.

Many other issues can be corrected utilizing acupuncture; we however do not recommend it for long term pain relief. Pain has a reason and we would rather find that and treat it appropriately. Short term pain cessation can be used while trying to find correction for whatever is causing the problem but ongoing pain without known cause only responds to acupuncture for short term relief. We like to talk about this as treating cause NOT symptoms.
Please reach out to find out more. We would be happy to talk with you in depth concerning your issues!

Ultrasound  Raleigh, NC

Ultrasound

Ultrasound therapy is a chiropractic treatment used to help reduce muscle pain and increase range of motion. By using sound waves, we are able to stimulate deep inside the tissue. This minimizes stiffness, swelling, and pain while also promoting circulation, and pain-free movement.

Cupping

Using glass cups and fire we perform cupping traditionally. We believe this is best because unlike plastic cups and only suction, glass cupping uses the benefit of heat. Heat allows the body to draw more blood and therefore toxins to the surface. Just like sweating allows the body to remove toxins, glass cupping causes heat and suction to bring everything to the surface for faster removal. There really is a difference and you should experience it for yourself. If performed properly there really is no pain or long term bruising. Because we use fire to create heat we do not require pure suction and this allows the bruising associated with cupping to fade much faster.

At Infinite Wellness we utilize it to treat a wide range of health issues including, but not limited to:

  • Inflammation
  • Injury
  • Neck, shoulder, and back pain
  • Joint problems
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Asthma
  • Headaches
  • Cramps
  • Digestive issues
  • Arthritis
  • Eczema
  • Acne
  • Allergies
  • High blood pressure
  • Anxiety

We perform cupping therapy by placing specialized cups on your skin for several minutes to create suction. You can think of it as the opposite of a massage – pulling your tissue up rather than massing your tissue down. Depending on your needs, cupping can also be combined with acupuncture.

Your practitioner will create the suction in the cups through the use of a small handheld vacuum device. This causes the skin and underlying tissue within the cups to lift, allowing for greater circulation and relief of pain. In most cases, these cups are left in place for a few minutes and then gently removed.

Benefits of cupping include reduced pain and inflammation, a greater sense of well-being, decreased pain and irritation caused by skin, joint, and muscle issues, improved digestion, and lowered blood pressure.

Side effects are generally mild and may include bruising where the cups were placed and minor discomfort. Bruising and marks left from the therapy typically last a few days, but may take more than a week to fade.

If you have questions about cupping or would like to make an appointment, please call Infinite Wellness at (919) 217-8188.

Corrective Exercise

From low impact and cardio training to high intensity and Olympic style lifting, our corrective exercise classes offer something for everyone. Workouts are placed within the reach of all ages, corrective exercise classes levels, genders and physical limitations. Almost anyone can be involved and everyone can better themselves in some way. We have a program for you!

We are often asked if what we do is CrossFit. ® While we applaud their organization and what they do, it is not the same here. We “Cross Train,” meaning we utilize both cardio and weight training together for better performance. We do not train for the “games.” It is similar, but less expensive. MUCH LESS.

Muscle Stimulation (E-Stim)

Electrical stimulation along with other therapies like Intersegmental traction, heat, ice are all wonderful modalities to aid in healing when we are injured. These techniques help the body relax, decrease muscle spasm, increase tissue healing and repair faster.

How Does Chiropractic Muscle Stimulation Work?

Chiropractic Muscle Stimulation or E-Stim is a specialized medical treatment that uses electric currents to induce muscle contraction. It is non-invasive and clients may lay down while undergoing the therapy. Patients do not experience pain from the therapy. In fact, many find a session an enjoyable experience.

The Benefits of E-Stim

You may benefit from including E-Stim as part of an individualized treatment program. As a non-invasive therapy, E-Stim has shown to be an effective treatment for many. A care plan including this therapy offers significant benefits like:

  • Improving blood flow to an area of injury, promoting the healing process in affected areas.
  • Increasing muscle tone and muscle strength in weakened muscles.
  • Strengthening the link between muscle movement and your brain, making it easier to move from easier exercises to more complex tasks.
  • Preventing or slowing muscle atrophy, or a decrease of muscle mass.
  • Encouraging relaxation, as the therapy releases tension in muscles, and encourages endorphin production.

Individuals who have chronic conditions, such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS), and athletes who are looking to enhance their performance can both benefit from E-Stim. Those with MS can experience a reduction in muscle tension and discomfort after a session, making movement easier. Athletes can use E-Stim to reduce swelling and soreness after a workout. It can also be used to decrease muscle stiffness as part of injury prevention. Speak with Dr. Peterson today to explore your treatment options.

Start on the Path to Recovery

After undergoing an initial evaluation, E-Stim may be incorporated into an individualized treatment program to reduce pain and speed up recovery. Patients may pair E-Stim with massage therapy, chiropractic treatments, and other services at Infinite Wellness, Inc.. Patients undergoing E-Stim may need multiple treatments depending on their condition and their individual response.

Our experienced team makes it easy to get started. For more information about muscle stimulation, contact Infinite Wellness, Inc. at (919) 217-8188.
