The practice of acupuncture is the stimulation of certain acupuncture points on the human body for the purpose of controlling and regulating the flow and balance of energy in the body. The practice includes the techniques of piercing the skin by inserting needles and point stimulation by the use of acupressure, electrical, mechanical, thermal or traditional therapeutic means.
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. Mark Gvist 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.
Cold Laser Therapy, or Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT, 3LT,) is an efficient and cost-effective treatment used for a variety of conditions. LLLT utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with and accelerate the tissue’s natural healing process. Painless, sterile, non-invasive, and drug-free, this modality uses low-intensity photons to stimulate energy production within the cell’s mitochondria. Stimulating cellular photon receptors with LLLT leads to: production of mitochondrial ATP (the cell’s energy source); increase in intracellular metabolism; decrease pain & inflammation; synthesis of protein and growth factors; cell growth and proliferation; and enhanced blood flow and oxygen concentration for faster healing results.

At Carlisle Chiropractic Clinic, PC & Acupuncture, 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 chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
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.
Muscle Stimulation (E-Stim)
Muscle stimulation therapy, or e-Stim, is a therapeutic treatment that applies electrical stimulation to treat pain and muscle spasms.
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 Carlisle Chiropractic Clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
Custom Orthotic Support
Carlisle Chiropractic Clinic uses Foot Levelers custom orthotics to help properly support and position the feet. A foot scan shows how imbalances in the feet lead to problems throughout the spine and body. The orthotics are then made from your personal foot scan, so they are customized to fit your feet!
