10th Annual Celebration In Campbell!

Welcome to Icon Chiropractic’s 10th Annual Celebration! We are hosting a small dinner in celebration of Icon’s 10th year open in practice and 5th year in Campbell. We wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for our amazing patients who put their trust in Icon to not only get out of pain but to achieve a higher level of health and wellness. For that reason, we would like for you to join us on Thursday, May 27th from 6 pm to 8 pm for our Chiropractic wellness dinner presentation. Please bring someone along that you know could benefit from Chiropractic care.

Due to Covid regulations in Santa Clara county, limited spots and seating are available. Please call the office to find out more information and secure a spot. For this event, we required current patients to bring one friend or family member to the event that is not a current patient that could benefit from Chiropractic care. We also request that attendees are over the age of 12. Dinner will be provided to you and your guest.

Thank you and look forward to seeing you there!

Meet Anson Ho

Hello, my name is Anson Ho, and I am excited to join Icon Chiropractic for my internship! I was born and raised in Hong Kong. My family and I then moved to Honolulu, Hawaii where we enjoy the island life!

I was very active in sports activities when growing up, and I have seen different healthcare professionals for sports injuries, which made me interested in working in a healthcare setting, helping people with injury prevention and rehabilitation. This led me to pursue my Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology and Rehabilitation Science at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Throughout my 4 years in college, I had opportunities to visit different healthcare professionals and found that chiropractic care is a great treating option for achieving wellness. Chiropractic focuses on the causes of issues rather than just the symptoms. This fits my philosophy of health, and I decided to pursue my Doctorate of Chiropractic at Palmer College of Chiropractic West. I also recently received my certificate of Nutrition Coach from the National Academy of Sports Medicine.

What I like about chiropractic is that it is a natural healing method, which does not require drugs or surgeries. I have seen patients walked in with lots of pain and walked out with a big smile. I am always being amazed by the power of chiropractic and the human body. I can’t wait to a part of your health journey and see more amazing stories!

Blood Test

Why do Chiropractor’s order blood test?

The health of your blood plays a key role in the overall function of your body. Did you know that vitamin deficiency has been linked to back pain? Recent studies show that vitamin and mineral deficiency in your blood levels can cause you to have back pain.1 Now, more than ever, people have developed a sedentary indoor lifestyle. Although this may sound relaxing, more and more people have reported feeling fatigue with aches and pain. Their blood levels often show vitamin d deficiency. Find out your blood levels today! Just call the office and inquire about it. The normal blood intervals are often much broader than they should be and can overlook results.

Neuromuscular Reeducation

The brain and the body have an close connection. Your brain controls everything in your body. Think of your brain as a the master controller. It enables your body to do everything from walking, reading, writing and even breathing. 

When you want to do an activity such as going for a walk, your brain sends signals through your nerves that tell the muscles in your legs to move. It also tells your muscles how fast to move and how much force to use.

Those nerves are not indestructible and can be damaged. When that happens, you might think you would like to walk, but the brain cannot effectively send signals to your muscles to accomplish the task.

Neuromuscular re-education helps retrain the nerve connections between your brain and your soft tissues so that they effectively communicate with each other to accomplish everyday movements like walking or waving.

The main benefit of neuromuscular reeducation is that it helps restore the connection between the brain and impaired muscles. The goal is to give you a wider range of motion. It can also help relieve pain by releasing pressure on impinged nerves, giving you better balance, and strengthening your muscles.

The ultimate goal of Neuromuscular Reeducation is to give patients a superior quality of life without having to endure invasive surgeries.

Denneroll

The Denneroll is a spinal orthotic designed to restore curvatures to the spine. It is really easy to use and has been researched thoroughly to improve spinal curvatures. A complete analysis of your X-rays is done to see if you are a good candidate for the Denneroll. Based on the findings, recommendations for why type of Denneroll and also how to properly use it are provided through your doctor. The pictures above show the difference between spinal curvatures in the cervical (neck) and lumbar (lower back) with the spinal orthotic. The Denneroll is only used for 15-20 minutes per day and has great results. Please feel free to inquire about the Denneroll to our doctors or staff.
