How can we help?

With eleven years in practice as a Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologist, Dr. Christa Hubbard develops unique exercises and utilizes a variety of therapies to meet our patients' individual and specific needs. Dr. Christa's background in Mechanical Engineering, Chiropractic Neurology, and passion for sports performance results in custom-tailored treatments and exercises highly specific to each patient's goals.

A holistic neuromuscular examination is performed by Dr. Christa to determine appropriate treatment protocols. Our muscles have synergies that allow us to balance, walk, and perform everyday tasks. Injuries or illnesses can cause the normal muscle synergies to become skewed and result in erratic movements. When muscle synergies are appropriate, optimal performance can be achieved, and thus an overall enhanced quality of life. Examinations are performed in a task-specific manner, individualized to each patient's unique presentation.

Brain injuries present themselves differently in each patient, and brain illnesses present with varying symptoms. We understand that what works for one patient, may not work for another patient with the same condition. Therefore, Dr. Christa performs thorough testing to properly determine the cause of the problem and steadfastly works to develop a customized home exercise program for continued success.

Dr. Christa and the Horizon HealthWorks team appreciates each patients' differing goals and the Horizon HealthWorks works eagerly to assist patients in meeting their objectives

Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound is described as the passage of sound waves through tissues to relieve pain and promote healing. Ultrasound produces many additional effects including tissue relaxation, local blood flow, and scar tissue breakdown. This procedure is utilized to treat conditions such as arthritis, periarticular structures including muscles, ligaments and joints that are inflamed, neuromas, and to soften adhesive scars.

Manual Therapy

This procedure involves passive and skilled movements of joints and soft tissues. Manual therapy is used to improve tissue extensibility, range of motion, reduce swelling, and moderate pain. Manual therapy techniques may include massage, mobilizations, passive range of motion, and manual traction. Manual therapy may be utilized as an adjunctive treatment to other procedures performed on the same day to restore muscle function, reduce edema, improve joint range of motion, or relieve muscle spasms.

Therapeutic Exercise

The instruction and direct supervision of specific exercises are intended for the correction of a particular problem. Therapeutic exercises may be used to regain flexibility and increase strength and endurance. Therapeutic exercises may be utilized when a patient presents with loss or restriction of joint motion, strength, functional capacity or mobility secondary to a disease or injury.

Electrical Stimulation

Electrical stimulation is used to mimic the way muscles naturally contract. This procedure may be used to strengthen muscles, reduce spasms, relieve pain, and decrease inflammation. Electrical stimulation may be utilized as an adjunct for pain relief post-operatively or for certain types of chronic pain.

Neuromuscular

Re-education

This procedure is implemented to improve balance, coordination, kinesthetic sense, posture, and proprioception. Neuromuscular reeducation is indicated when muscles may have lost their function secondary to an injury or a disease. The goal of neuromuscular reeducation is to improve the communication between muscles and nerves resulting in normal muscle function and movement patterns.
