Dr. Ash specializes in a wide range of traditional and state-of-the-art holistic treatments at his wellness center — including chiropractic care, cryotherapy, cold laser therapy, compression therapy, decompression therapy, cupping, infrared light therapy and massage.
Because everyone’s body is unique, Dr. Ash and his team develop customized treatment plans for each patient. He strives to find the cause of injury and pain, which often originates from the spine. Realignment of the spine reduces inflammation, relieves pain and aids in a quicker recovery.
His education and more than 10 years of pain management experience make Dr. Ash an expert in treating treating back pain, neck pain, knee pain, herniated discs, bulging discs, sciatica, TMJ, jaw pain, headaches, migraines, gerd, acid reflux, arthritis, sports injuries, sprains, strains, muscle tightness, and other conditions causing chronic or acute pain. With his holistic approach to chiropractic care, Dr. Ash addresses not only each patient’s immediate pain and discomfort, but also offers tools to help prevent pain from returning.
Dr. Ash’s goal is to help patients feel better than they ever have and on a path to the pain-free life they deserve. His success at achieving this goal is why The Chiro Guy has ranked as the #1 chiropractic office in Los Angeles for the last seven years!
Scoliosis is clinically defined as a curvature of the spine more than 10 degrees off from center. It can also appear combined with lordosis (abnormal curvature towards the front of the body) or kyphosis (abnormal curvature towards the back of the body).
Scoliosis is not just a physical disfigurement, causing uneven shoulders or hips, but can also cause real pain and discomfort. This affects not only a teen’s physical health but their sense of identity and social well-being and self-esteem. Scoliosis can also cause heart or lung problems if severe.
Curvatures of less than 20 degrees are considered mild, but should still be checked out every few months by a trained spinal expert to ensure the curvature isn’t getting worse. Due to growth spurts, adolescents are more likely to have increasing curvatures; the severity of their scoliosis can increase by as much as 10 degrees in just a few months.
Chiropractic care assists the adolescent body by making sure the spine is properly aligned and by providing frequent checks to make sure the curvature of the spine in scoliosis is not worsening due to growth spurts. Chiropractic care also addresses chronic back pain and muscle aches from growth spurts.
At our clinics in Los Angeles, we treat scoliosis with integrative care. Dr. Ash will create a customized treatment plan for your child for scoliosis including not just chiropractic care, but other modalities such as gentle flexibility exercises.
By integrating all of our clinical experience with how your child lives their life, we give you a specific plan to address their scoliosis symptoms and let them lead normal lives.
