Along with specialized chiropractic treatment, Dr. Michael Vipond, Dr. Eddy Luke and the team at Health First Chiropractic Altoona will
provide you with rehabilitation exercises, advice on posture and stress management and nutritional advice. The most important
aspect of chiropractic care is the comprehensive approach to treatment and management of a patient’s unique condition.
Massage therapy is a great addition to chiropractic care. Many
people seek therapeutic massage as a natural means to promote
healthy body functioning and to increase recovery time when
injured. Coupled with chiropractic adjustments, massage
therapy can help to improve blood circulation and muscle tone.
At Health First Chiropractic Altoona, we have a licensed massage
therapist on staff for our patients: Jon Dixon, LMT
A study performed by the American Medical Association Board of Trustees concluded that women who
received chiropractic care during their third trimester of pregnancy were able to carry and deliver with far more
comfort. Plus, the need for painkillers was also reduced by half in several patients in another well-known study.
Children particularly need pediatric chiropractic care as they age because a lot of the problems we experience as adults
actually come from our childhood – either because we fell (think about how many times a day a baby falls when they are learning
to walk, sometimes 10-20 times per day), broke something or simply had poor posture (which is extremely common today).
