Movement

Proper spinal movement is aligned with flexibility and strength.

Proper spinal movement is aligned with flexibility and strength. Having adequate flexibility of tissues around the spine and pelvis allows full normal spinal movement, prevents abnormal force on the joints, and decreases the possibility of injury.

Stretching exercises prepare muscles for activity. Stretching before and after a workout can prevent muscles strain, soreness and help to avoid injuries. Stretching exercises will help improve your flexibility and strengthen muscles.

Strength

Research has shown that people who are physically fit are less likely to have back pain, injuries, and will also recover much faster from injuries than those who are less physically fit.

The abdominal and back muscles help to stabilize the spine allowing proper spinal movement and correct posture. Also, having strong leg and hip muscles allow for proper lifting techniques and body mechanics. Strengthening back and abdominal muscles can help to relieve back pain, provide energy and give a feeling of wellness making daily routine activities much easier.

As always if you are experiencing back pain be sure to check with Dr. Leger before starting an exercise routine.

Let Integrative Chiropractic Lead You to a Better Lifestyle.

Spine Success

Throughout our lives we come across pain that in some way is directed from our spine.

Our spine is the central core of our nervous system and these nerve fibers control the movements in our body. Our muscles and bones need these nerve fibers to work properly, so that our posture, movement, strength, and balance are working properly as well.

Staying active is the key to maintaining spine success.

Staying active in our lives is a key importance to maintaining spine success. When lack of activity is present your body will lose the energy needed to control the human body. Keeping active maintains and increases this ability to work properly.

Not only will you become physically injured by lack of being active, but also your mental focus in life decreases. You will become unproductive and fall into a downward state of losing energy. Eventually this will cause major problems with your body and physical exhaustion occurs regularly throughout your life.

Good posture by Integrative Chiropractic

Posture and Balance

Spinal balance and correct posture are two very important elements to abundant energy. Good posture should be a relaxed, comfortable and balanced state providing you with stability, poise, and energy.

Our spine is the central core of our nervous system and these nerve fibers control the movements in our body. Our muscles and bones need these nerve fibers to work properly, so that our posture, movement, strength, and balance are working properly as well.

Good posture is when your head is balanced over your hips, your chin is parallel to the floor, and your pelvis is level. You walk with vigor and your step feels light. Good posture is a very important part of good mental and physical health.

Myths and Facts about Chiropractic

There are many myths out there about chiropractic. Let's set the record straight.

What is all that “crackling” and “popping” that I hear?

For those of you who have been treated by a chiropractor or even for people who have never been treated by one but who have always heard about it, you may wonder what are all the sounds that your body makes when you are being adjusted or manipulated? That is indeed a very good question and one that has not always been answered clearly or the answer may have people confused.As you may know, our body is filled with air (oxygen and nitrogen for the most part) and these 2 gases occupy different areas of our body at all times.The crackling or popping sounds that we hear at times when we are being adjusted or manipulated are not caused by the actual bones themselves but by the pockets of these 2 gases that are bursting when the gases are rushing in to fill the partial vacuum created when the joints are slightly separated during a treatment. Another example of this phenomenon would be the "pop" sound you hear when the cork is taken out of a champagne bottle. Not all chiropractic adjusting techniques produce this noise. In fact, some adjusting techniques use little force and thus produce no noise at all.
 
Is it bad to "crack" your back or neck a lot?  

This question is frequently asked because people associate the "crackling" or "popping" of one's back or neck with a chiropractic adjustment. The two are not the same thing. If a person has a desire to "crack" his/her neck or back it is often because one area of their spine is fixated or jammed causing another area to move too much and "pop", sometimes by itself. When you "crack" your back you may be relieving the tension for a little while. Do you notice how it keeps coming back.That is because you are not giving yourself a specific chiropractic adjustment.  
 

Do I need to see a Chiropractor for the rest of my life?

The answer to this often asked question is simply NO. The extent to which you choose to benefit from your chiropractic care is ultimately up to you. Each & everyone of us are solely responsible for the quality of our health & well-being. However, we do strongly urge all patients to consider wellness chiropractic care. This is where the long-term, lasting benefits of care are beneficial. Regular g habits are a lifestyle decision and so is lifetime, wellness chiropractic care.
 
Should I continue chiropractic care if I don't have any symptoms and I feel better?

It is advised to do so. Just because symptoms disappear, does not mean your subluxations or fixations are corrected. Most of the patients seen in our office have spinal degeneration which has taken years to develop. The trauma of the birth process, slips, falls, accidents and countless other stresses over the course of your lifetime adversely affect the health of your spine. The longer you wait to have your spine checked by a chiropractor, the longer it will take to correct your subluxations.

The Power that Made the Body, Heals the Body.

Brian C.

Dr. Leger is great about getting me in when I really need an adjustment. I use him regularly to keep me aligned from all of my gym induced injuries.

Timothy S.

Dr Lionel Leger is a consumate professional! He performs with utmost care and sensitivity, always delivering an integrative chiropractic session sure to please. I am proud to recommend Dr Leger and look forward to a continued relationship as a health care patient.

Bob P.

I was very skeptical about using a chiropractor, but Dr. Leger's methodical approach was very different than I expected, and provided a great deal of relief to my constant back pain. Had I not moved, I would have continued using his services, and I highly recommend him.

Lyndia M.

Dr. Leger treated me during my pregnancy, and helped me cope with back issues. He made me feel at ease, and answered all my questions. I highly recommend Dr. Leger!

Jaun D.

Having worked with several physical therapists due to my various sports related surgeries I am very comfortable to recommend Lionel for both his medical expertise and his unmatched personal qualifications.

Carlos C.

My shoulder was killing me on a Saturday and I couldn't find a single Chiropractor in town. I contacted Dr Leger and he was kind enough to wait for me while I got lost on the way to his clinic. When I got there he was quick to detect the problem and did a great job on my shoulder, showing me exercises that have helped me too. His office has followed up with me in a non-invasive way. I would recommend his services.

Ekaterina S.

Dr. Leger by far is the best chiropractor I have had. Usually, the chiropractors that I went to didn't seem to care much about my well-being. They at most saw me for just a few minutes and put me in a massage chair. Dr. Leger gives all his professional effort to provide the best service to the patients and pays attention to even the smallest concerns with your health. His initial examination was very thorough, and he wrote down quite a lot. The following appointments, he always referred to the previous notes and noted the progress. He not only cares for my back, and skeletal frame, but gives great advice about other things that can affect your health, such as diet and sleeping position. He instructed me to do a few exercises every day, and despite the muscle strain that I may work up every day, the exercises have helped tremendously to get rid of it and made me feel much better. I no longer have acute pain, nor do I need to see Dr. Leger that often because of the improvement of my back.

Danny L.

Dr. Leger is very knowledgeable and well versed in the chiropractic field. The fact that he is also a certified athletic trainer gives him another perspective that you don't get with many chiropractors. He is easy to talk to and very interested in his patients' input. Dr. Leger always gave me the feeling that he was working with me rather than just on me, which is vital for me in any health related relationship I form. He is extremely honest. I trust his opinion and that he always has my best interest in mind.

Morrison D.

I was very fortunate to find Dr. Leger when I moved to Miami. I've had a couple of flare-ups of carpal tunnel syndrome, and he has successfully treated them. I would highly recommend him for chiropractic care.

Debbie B.

Dr. Leger is absolutely Incredible in every way. Words cannot even describe the depth of his caring and professional expertise. Over 2 years ago I came in and couldn't walk. He quickly got me pain free and has kept me that way since with maintenance visits. He had made tremendous progress with my Mother who was suffering terribly. He helped her friends also. He is so kind and genuine. I have never met any Doctor that has been so effective and helpful at all times. As I said....he's Incredible and I cannot ever Thank him enough!

Micheal C.

He took his time to find the troubled areas,I felt great after my first visit.

Raul H.

Dr. Leger was very knowledgeable about the issue I was experiencing with my neck and upper back. He was very patient with me. He answered all my questions and explained his diagnosis and procedures. I was most impressed with his training and knowledge of body mechanics and sports related injuries. I highly recommend his services to anyone experiencing any kind of repetitive strain or sports based njury.

Ilene B.

I have never had a doctor that cared so much. Not only did he take excellent care of me, always finding time for me with his busy schedule. He constantly checked on me to make sure I was progressing as I should, and continues to care about my well-being. There is no one who has ever treated me with this much concern, and professionalism.

Dawn M.

Dr. Leger is one of the most caring and professional chiropractors I have ever been to. He is extremely knowledgeable and takes a vested interest in his patients' well being. I have highly recommended Dr. Leger to my friends and co-workers in need of his services.

Veronica M.

Dr. Leger is a great chiropractor. He is on time, listens to you, gives you good advice, recommends and performs the right treatment. Would recommend him to anyone looking for chiropractic service.

Sean S.

Dr. Leger is an amazing chiropractor and helped me with my sciatica. He is always professional, and he will make himself available for your needs. I highly recommend him as a chiropractor.

Lourdes C.

I highly recommend Dr. Lionel Leger. My first visit with him was an emergency and he handled my case with great care. I can see that he is dedicated to his work and provides expertise, professionalism and a caring attitude to all his patients.

Susan L.

I came into Dr. Leger's office in awful pain. I could hardly get out of my bed. He worked with me for well over an hour. I found him to be extremely caring, gentle and kind. And each time I see him, he calls my home in the evening. When was the last time a Dr. was caring enough to call you after a visit? I am presently dealing with a sciatic nerve problem in my leg and he is helping me more and more. I highly recommend him and I will continue to go to him for my chiropractic care.

Mary R.

I did not realize how my body was compensating for a pinched nerve and its related pain. Neck surgery was recommended but not a solution for me. I found "my way" to Dr. Leger and through his treatment, I was relieved of the pain and he has provided exercises and tips to avoid another painful episode that I lived with for 5 months.

Debra B.

Dr Lionel Leger has been an absolute Lifesaver for me and words cannot express my appreciation for his kind and caring help. He's amazing! The Best!
