Proud to announce that we now offer Sound Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (SASTM). Our office is the only office with these unique and effective tools for 100 miles!
|Instruments effectively break down fascial restrictions and scar tissue. The ergonomic design of these instruments provides the clinician with the ability to locate restrictions through sound waves. This allows the clinician to treat the affected area with the appropriate amount of pressure, due to square surface concept.|
|The introduction of controlled microtrauma to affected soft tissue structure causes the stimulation of a local inflammatory response. Microtrauma initiates reabsorption of inappropriate fibrosis or excessive scar tissue and facilitates a cascade of healing activities resulting in remodeling of affected soft tissue structures. Adhesions within the soft tissue which may have developed as a result of surgery, immobilization, repeated strain or other mechanisms, are broken down allowing full functional restoration to occur.|
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.

At Daly Chiropractic & Wellness Center, 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.We have specialized equipment including the Laser Gym to help strengthen and rehabilitate your muscles and joints. Exercise allows us to treat the muscles, tendons and ligaments that cause pain through tendonitis, sprain/ strain injuries, weakness and spasm. We even have exercises for your eyes!
Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom while others come to just "get healthy". 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. We can provide coaching in subjects such as ergonomics, posture, stress and pregnancy.
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 Lafayette chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
We are also blessed to have an on staff Registered Dietician! Amy Staggs RD is here to help our patients with meal plans, diabetes, weight loss, and even grocery shopping. Amy hosts FREE nutritional talks on a huge variety of subjects, hosted at our office, at the Regional Library and on Facebook live. Find her latest videos, tips and schedule on our facebook page.
We also carry Standard Process, Young Living essential oils and Designs For Health products in our office. We choose to carry only whole food supplements, which means NO synthetic ingrediants, dyes, preservatives or addatives. Our supplements are also gluten, soy and dairy free!
Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!

Studies have found that about half of all expectant mothers develop low-back pain at some point during their pregnancies. This is especially true during the third trimester when the baby's body gains the most weight. Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy can relieve and even prevent the pain and discomfort frequently experienced in pregnancy, and creates an environment for an easier, safer delivery. It is one safe and effective way to help the spine and pelvis cope with the rapid increase in physical stress by restoring a state of balance. In fact, most women have found that chiropractic care helped them avoid the use of pain medications during their pregnancy, and studies have shown that chiropractic adjustments help to reduce time in labor. Your chiropractor should be your partner for a healthy pregnancy. They can provide adjustments, as well as offer nutritional, ergonomic and exercise advice to help address your special needs. Dr. Kelly is a certified Webster practitioner, and routinely checks for sacral imbalance in pregnant mothers. Misalignment of the sacrum can cause decreased nerve function to the female organs, legs, bladder and colon. It can also cause pain in the lower back, pelvis, hips and ligaments! Webster has long been known for balancing the ligaments of the uterus and creating and optimal environment for growth, fetal position and birth. As a wellness center, we also pay close attention to nutrition for expecting mothers. This includes calcium testing and mineral testing, and recommendations for mothers who are vegan, diabetic, carrying multiples and/or high risk. All of our supplements are whole food based and completely safe for prenatal care, post partum and breast feeding mothers.
Detoxification, Cleansing and Purification Programs

Currently there are more than 11,000 FDA approved chemicals that are added to our food supply and moer than 80,000 approved to be used within the U.S! Research has shown that many of these chemicals can disrupt our immune, endocrine, nervous and reproductive systems. Internally our bodies produce waste byproducts as a result of normal metabolic function. Although your body is designed to rid itself of these toxins naturally, it can become overburdened. Purfication offer your body additional support to expel natural toxins and minimize your weight, which is important to maintaing your health and vitality.
