Gonstead Technique – “Feel the Gonstead Difference!”
Our clinic utilizes the Gonstead Technique and Dr. Serafini has spent several years studying and perfecting the technique. This kind of chiropractic technique focuses on strengthening the base of your spinal column while at same time fixing misalignments (called “subluxations”) so that you will be better able to cope with bodily ailments and signs of aging. It has worked wonders on countless patients here at Valley Spinal Care.
Laser therapy uses infrared and cold light to treat pain by stimulating cells to aid in the healing process. By helping to reduce inflammation, and by stimulating the mitochondria to optimize energy and regeneration, laser therapy can help reduce recovery periods and prevent re-injury during long term rehabilitative physical therapies.
The body itself gives us clues to where it hurts and how to heal it. Applied kinesiology interrogates the body without invasive tests, finding the muscle weaknesses where the trouble hides. Whether it is joint manipulation, joint mobilization, myofascial therapy, meridian therapy, or cranial therapy—Chris Serafini will help you get to the root of your pain so we can target our treatment to your unique problems and needs.
Brimhall’s 6 Steps to WellnessMore than just a treatment for one bodily problem, the Brimhall wellness plan looks to address the individual in a holistic manner, starting by re-establishing structural integrity then moving on to nutrition and electromagnetism, before addressing allergies and ridding the body of the toxins that constrain our health. The treatment even looks to address our belief systems and the negative thoughts block us from happiness.

Auto Accident Care
From whiplash and chronic back pain to anxiety and insomnia, an auto accident can lead to a wide range of physical problems beyond the initial impact. Getting the proper treatment is to key to rapid and full recovery.
Our spinal columns, as the basic structure of our nervous systems, are also the source from which many of our problems can emanate. A comprehensive spinal screening will look for the source of bodily pains and irregularities and help to develop a treatment plan specifically catered to your individual issues and concerns.
From tennis elbow to arch problems, a trained chiropractor can help. A sports injury such as a sprained ankle or sore back can result from poor technique or lead to poor technique when an individual athlete overcompensates for an injury favoring one side of his or her body or one position. Sports injuries also lead to secondary pains and problems. Chris Serafini services not just the specific location of pain, but the areas radiating out from it as well.
One of the most popular Valley Spinal Care services, this non-invasive form of acupuncture, acupressure applies “finger pressure” to energy points where blockages occur, in order to stimulate the body to heal itself. Acupressure can help relieve arthritis pain, ease tension, lessen stress and anxiety and even help with menstrual cramps. In addition everything from headaches (even migraines), bodily pain, insomnia and depression are positively affected by acupressure when conducted by a trained chiropractor.
Digital X-Ray imaging, uses digital X-Ray sensors instead of traditional photographic film to capture the X-Ray images which are then stored directly on the computer. There are many advantages of digital X-Ray technology including immediate image viewing within seconds which also cuts down the need to schedule re-takes. Much less radiation is used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography and digital X-Rays reduce patient radiation exposure by 80-90% compared to the already low exposure of traditional X-rays.
