Services

At Peak Balance Family Wellness, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Colorado Springs office.

Chiropractic Care

We provide spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing gentle 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, Melissa Harlow 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.

Dr. Harlow utilizes gentle chiropractic techniques such as:

  • Diversified

  • Thompson

  • Activator

  • SOT

  • ART

  • Webster

  • Cox Flexion-Distraction


Spinal Decompression

Are you missing work due to pain? Worried about the medications or surgery outcome? If you answered “yes” then it may be a good idea to consider different treatments in order to reduce the symptoms of your condition. At Peak Balance our spinal decompression is wrapped into a easy to complete plan, which also includes chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy. The combination of chiropractic adjustments and massage accelerates and maximizes the decompression benefits. Ask Dr. Harlow if you are a candidate.


Corrective Exercises

At Peak Balance Family Wellness, 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.


Lifestyle Advice

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.


Massage Therapy

We offer specialized massages from our experienced massage therapists. Massages are helpful in maintaining your physical, mental and emotional well being. The health benefits of massage therapy is recognized as one of the oldest methods of healing. Chronic aches and pain will melt away as you relax and flourish in the many benefits of massage. Together, chiropractic and massage provide you with a more complete and effective system of true healthcare.

Massage Therapy Our massage therapist can do a variety of techniques including:

  • Deep Tissue
  • Swedish
  • Cupping
  • Prenatal
  • Sports
  • Hot Stone

Spinal & Postural Screenings

There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your spinal health is no exception. Posture and spinal screenings by a trained and experienced chiropractor such as Melissa Harlow can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being. In order to help the Colorado Springs community, we provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today at (719) 360-6958 to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.

Testimonial

  • "My back has never felt better. Dr. Harlow took the pain away that I had been living with for over 20 years and didn't even realize it. I just went back again last week and it was another amazing experience. I sleep better than I have in a long time."
