Services & Techniques

At  Civic Center Chiropractic, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic and whole body wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer our patients, and the type of conditions we treat.

Chiropractic Care

With 25 years experience, we know that there is not just 1 method to get the results you are looking for. We can adapt your treatment to your comfort level. For those that are starting care for the first time, we have non-force adjustment techniques like the"activator" method that requires no force or cause no "popping" sound. For others, a more traditional approach, sometimes called the Palmer or Gonstead method, involves gentle force adjustments delivered to the correct region of the spine that produce movement you can feel and hearAll the treatments are safe, confortable, and effective.

My wife, who is also a Doctor of Chiropractic and has given birth to 3 children, and I both have extensive training in treating pregnant women. This is a unique specialty as the patient undergoes many physical changes as her body grows to support the growing fetus. Whether you have been injured in a fall at work or the store, or have been in a rear end auto accident, or are simply feeling pain from the changes within your body, our treatment is completely safe and reliable. Don't let anyone tell you nothing can be done to help your pain just because you are pregnant.

Dr. Dulberg's area of expertise is not limited to the spine. His experience through his post-graduate training as a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician allows him to safely and effectively treat sprains and strains of the knees. shoulders, ankles, and most joints of the body. Numbness and tingling in the arms and legs, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, and plantar fascitis are a few of the other conditions he has successfully treated for years. 

Corrective Exercises

We teach our patients very specific exercises to help stretch and strengthen all injured areas of their body, including the neck, back, shoulders, knees, ankles, and elbows. Cushions for stretching, hand weights for strengthening, braces for support or protection , and athletic taping are some of the additiobnal services provided to all patients as part of their normal chiropractic care. These exercises are reviewed regularly in the office with the patient until they can remember independently to perform them in the comfort of their own home. Compliance with stretching and exercise can dramatically improve the effectiveness of your chirporactic care, help you to become pain-free much faster, and allow you to have more self control over how you feel. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.

Lifestyle Advice

There is so much mis-information out there about correct do's and don'ts for taking care of oneself. We can explain with simple easy to understand examples the proper techniques for sitting, sleeping, lifting boxes, choosing a pillow or a bed, or sitting or lying on the couch. We can review with our patients certain activities they should skip or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each of our patients is unique, and to help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.

Nutritional Counseling

We can provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Are you trying to lose weight? Are you taking medication for high blood pressure or high choloesterol? Do you know which foods, supplements, or vitamins will naturally help you? Mark Dulberg can provide a structured nutritional program or general advise based on your individual needs.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.

Spinal & Postural Screenings

Posture and spinal screenings can be fun, easy, and informative, and can reveal important health information that you may have not discovered otherwise. The information obtained may unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment.
