Your spine and its interaction with your entire nervous system can affect numerous areas of your health. From muscle pain, nerve damage, to headaches and auto accident recovery, chiropractic care addressed with spine problems in order to live a more balanced life.
Chiropractic treatments were once considered alternative medicine, but the health benefits and interdisciplinary relationships with other medical professionals now mean that your doctors of chiropractic are whole health practitioners. From massage, physical therapy, nutrition, wellness, and rehabilitation, your Ocoee chiropractic search ends here.
Using hands-on spinal manipulation therapy, chiropractic care aims to enable your body to heal itself without surgery or medication. By undergoing a consultation with your DC, we’ll employ a number of diagnostic methods to ensure that we’re getting to the core root of the problem before doing any hands-on adjustments. These diagnoses can include reflex tests, strength tests, as well as digital X-Rays to determine bone structure.
What are chiropractic adjustments?
An adjustment is a hands-on manipulation that aims to realign your spine or joints for pain relief, quicker healing time, and to increase better posture, range of motion, and promote tension relief.
Your doctor of chiropractic will use their hands to apply a quick thrust to a joint or vertebra to fix subluxations – a misaligned bone or stuck joint.
WHAT CHIROPRACTIC CARE IS NOT:
- The popping sounds from a Chiropractic treatment is not bones cracking or crushing against each other. The pop, called a cavitation, is actually an audible release of gas caused by opening your joints to release this trapped gas. Oxygen, nitrogen, and CO2 can build up within your joints and cause a stiffness that simply needs to be released so that you can get your range of motion back.
- Chiropractic care is not dangerous. Our professionals are trained in numerous areas of medicine and can guarantee that the best method of care is being administered to relieve your pain and get you back to your life. The adjustments themselves don’t hurt, and are even safe for children.
- Chiropractic is not a one-stop solution to your problems. Spinal manipulation therapy addresses the underlying problem that brought you to the chiropractor in the first place to ensure that your pain doesn’t reoccur.
Whether you’re an athlete looking to push yourself to your fullest, are recovering from an injury, or are simply looking for a holistic approach to health care, our chiropractic clinic can ensure that your wellness plan is customized to your exact needs.
Offering Laser Therapy including K-Laser Therapy and MLS Laser Therapy
Laser therapy is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and help accelerate your healing process. Laser treatment can be used on people suffering from acute and chronic conditions in order to eliminate pain and swelling, increase functionality, and reduce spasms.
Class IV K-Laser Therapy is an FDA cleared therapeutic treatment that manages pain and inflammation while accelerating tissue regeneration. Laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness and pain.
What is K-Laser Therapy?
Laser Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to stimulate the bodies natural ability to heal. The effects of laser energy include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling.
A class IV laser that works to speed up healing by increasing local blood circulation and cell metabolism, and getting rid of inflammatory waste products.
During each painless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area.
This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.
During K-Laser Therapy, infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level increasing metabolic activity within the cell. By improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane, the increased production of cellular energy (ATP) is stimulated. The cascade of beneficial effects that follows includes increased cellular function and tissue repair.
Studies show Laser Therapy helps reduce pain associated with these common conditions:
Drug Free, Surgery Free, Pain Free
K-Laser Class IV therapeutic lasers deliver specific red and near-infrared wavelengths of laser light to induce a photochemical reaction and therapeutic effect. Physiological effects include increased circulation, reduced inflammation, pain reduction and enhanced tissue healing. Laser therapy has been used in Europe since the 1970s and was cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2005.
Technology is changing the way we work, the way we play, and the way we interact. It’s also changing the way we heal.
K-Laser Therapy emits red and near-infrared wavelengths directly targets the cells that are already trying to heal your body’s aches and pains. By enhancing the way your body heals itself, K-Laser treatment is a non-pharmaceutical method of quickly and effectively recovering from an injury, the stress of daily activity, or simply because of the natural ageing process.
HOW IT WORKS:
K-Laser technology targets specific areas where you’ve been experiencing pain and works to encourage a quicker conversion of oxygen into cellular energy, while quickly removing waste such as lactic acid and carbon dioxide from the cells. To do this, the laser increases blood flow to the area in order for the cells to quickly receive more oxygen.
Trusted by professional athletes and teams such as the New York Yankees, K-Laser technology is capable of quickly healing bruises, contusions, tendonitis, and providing relief to overused muscles. By promoting quick healing, you can get back on the field and back into training without missing a beat — and without exacerbating your injury.
The effects of K-Laser therapy have been touted in numerous studies and journals, and we’ve seen success treating a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries such as:
- Muscle Pain
- Carpal Tunnel
- Sprains and Strains
- Tennis/Golfer’s elbow
- Burns & Shingles
- Deep Edema
- Post-Traumatic Injury
Effective to quickly relieve soft tissue damage, the K-Laser, in combination with orthotics treatment, can also completely relieve your plantar fasciitis.

Orthotics & Braces
The way your feet connect with the ground can impact numerous aspects of your musculoskeletal makeup. For instance, wearing flip flops or high heels for long periods of time could result in stress on your joints and tendons, while throwing off your natural alignment.
If you’re experiencing lower back pain, and there is nothing wrong with your back, we’ll take a look at your gait and consider the types of shoes that you wear most often to determine whether you would be a good candidate for orthotics treatment.
There are a number of different types of orthotic inserts that you can wear in your shoes in order to provide additional support for your feet, provide extra shock absorption, and ensure that your ankle is supported throughout the day.
The most common reasons that we may recommend orthotic shoe inserts or custom shoes includes:
- Preventing or correcting foot deformities while relieving the shock that walking can have on your lower back
- Aligning the foot or ankle and providing additional support
- Improving foot or ankle function
- Plantar Fasciitis heel support
However, it’s not always your feet that may be the problem. If, as part of recovery from a serious injury such as a fracture, you require a device that limits movement, orthotics can slowly aid in the realignment of your joint. These orthotics treatments can also ensure that weight is distributed evenly to support a full recovery.
If you’re suffering from a condition that weakens your bone structures, or require a quick recovery, as nutritionists we can concoct a complete wellness plan that includes healthy foods that can support your recovery.
The chart below shows which orthotic devices are commonly recommended by the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons for various foot conditions. Consult with one of our doctors before buying or using an orthotic device on your own; if you select the wrong type of device, you could change the mechanics of your gait and cause problems instead of curing them.
Braces serve as invaluable aids in managing various types of pain, including knee and back discomfort. Specifically designed to provide support and stability, knee braces offer targeted compression and help alleviate pain associated with conditions such as arthritis, ligament injuries, or overuse. These braces not only aid in injury recovery but also offer preventive measures during physical activities. Additionally, back braces are effective tools for managing and alleviating lower back pain. By promoting proper spinal alignment and providing support to the lumbar region, back braces can significantly reduce discomfort caused by muscle strains, herniated discs, or other spinal issues. Whether worn during specific activities or throughout daily routines, these braces play a crucial role in enhancing mobility and facilitating a more comfortable, pain-free lifestyle.
Kinesiology Taping is a precise rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints. This technique allows the body’s normal range of motion as well as providing extending soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting. Kinesio tape is latex-free and hypoallergenic which makes it “skin friendly” for patients with sensitive or fragile skin; such as, patients with diabetes, fibromyalgia or rheumatoid arthritis.
Here at Quantumcare Medical, Sports & Injury we want to help you on your journey towards health and wellness. Our goal is to help you achieve total health and balance with your body. In order to achieve that goal, we are here to offer specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to help you maintain a healthy weight.
We proudly offer nutritional supplements products such as Biotics Research, Standard Process as well as HEMP/CBD products.
It is important to understand that often times where the pain presents is not the area that needs to be treated. The pain may be due to that area compensating and being over-worked from another area not pulling its weight. Our rehabilitation program includes strength, flexibility and agility training as well as training focused on coordination of body parts and motion to prepare the individual to return to full participation.
Spinal decompression is a non-invasive mechanical procedure performed within our office to help alleviate back pain. It involves gently stretching the spine to take pressure off the spinal discs (the cushions that separate the vertebrae in the spine). By relieving this pressure, bulging discs can retract back into place which takes pressure off the nerves in the spine. By decompressing the spine, it permits water, oxygen and other fluids to work their way back into the discs allowing them to heal naturally. Spinal decompression is an excellent option for anyone with chronic back pain who wants to get back to living a pain-free life as quickly as possible.
There are times when a thorough clinical examination requires us to take an x-ray to rule out any other health defects that could affect our treatment or diagnosis. These images allow us to get a better understanding of your bone anatomy, as well as soft tissue interactions, and to see if there has been significant wear in certain areas, or if there is an anomaly or curvature in your spine.
Instead of traditional film, digital xrays enhance the overall quality of the image while offering a number of immediate benefits to both doctors of chiropractic and their patients. At Quantum Care, we employ digital X-ray techniques that limit the amount of radiation required in traditional x-rays, and so that we can immediately preview the image to get an idea of your bone structure.
WHY ARE X-RAYS NECESSARY IN CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT?
Digital X rays would be part of the diagnosis stage, but in cases of extensive spine curvature, may also be used after significant progress has been made.
Proper spinal and joint adjustments can be made when your doctor of chiropractic takes advantage of a digital X ray since they can then place pressure on the exact location that needs adjustment, using either hands-on spinal manipulation or the graston technique.
During the diagnosis process, there may be symptoms that could be the result of a number of causes that could interfere with your treatment, or require other methods of medical intervention. These include:
- Curvature of the spine
- Degenerative change
The benefits of a safer, digital X-ray system include minimal exposure due to high frequency equipment, shielding and filtration that blocks the beam from affecting sensitive tissue, and narrowed beam to areas of interest only.
While digital X-rays have been found to have less harmful exposure rates than traditional machines, they are never performed on pregnant women, and limited in their use on children.

Normatec Recovery System
For athletes, coaches, and trainers pulse recovery systems from NormaTec Recovery offer a low-stress alternative for quick, comprehensive, and safe recovery. Whether you’re focusing on running, weight lifting, or sports training this system promotes easy muscle tissue rejuvenation for less downtime, greater productivity, and limited soreness or tightness.
Supported by professional football, basketball, and hockey teams, we support the use of NormaTec systems as an integral part of every athlete’s training.
HOW IT WORKS
Cycles of pulsing, holding, and release enhances blood flow and speeds the recovery time required after an intense workout.
- After attaching, a pre-flow system inflates to mold itself to your body
- A compression phase will begin, cycling upwards throughout the body quadrants — this is different than static compression squeezing, but instead uses a pulsing action to mimic the way your muscle works
- While moving to the next quadrant, the first will compress in a holding pattern
Similar to the kneading and stroking of a massage, pressure is applied in a meticulous pattern to ensure optimal circulation throughout your fatigued muscles.
The NormaTec system has three different attachments to be used individually or together for a whole body recovery. The leg, hip, and arm attachments focus on specific muscle groups to ensure the best recovery from whatever your training threw at you that day.
For pro or college teams, as well as individuals, NormaTec recovery is a fantastic option to ensure that the recovery period is quicker, and everyone is performing better. When considered as part of a physical therapy program, NormaTec recovery systems can work with rocktape wraps to ensure that blood flow to injuries is uninhibited.
GE LUNAR IDXA
Accurately measuring body composition is a crucial step toward assessing and treating a broad range of diseases and disorders. While the bathroom scale is a good starting point, today’s technology allows us to take an in-depth investigative look into a patient’s full body composition.
The GE Lunar iDXA diagnostic tool employs dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (iDXA) to peer beyond traditional BMI measurements and precisely measure body fat distribution, a critical factor in a variety of health disorders.
THE BENEFITS OF GE LUNAR IDXA BODY COMPOSITION
Clinical obesity strongly factors into a host of life-threatening health problems with studies showing that the distribution of excess body fat is a key indicator of a patient’s risk factors for certain diseases.
In addition to clinical obesity, iDXA body composition testing can provide insight into several conditions affecting overall health. Some of these include: cystic fibrosis, wasting syndrome (caused by HIV/Aids), chronic renal failure and anorexia nervosa.
iDXA exams can provide health care professionals with insight into these conditions and others by looking at factors such as bone density, lean tissue mass, and fat tissue mass.
It is a highly effective tool for health care providers to determine the effects and impact of therapy, diet, and exercise on your overall health. It is an essential tool in the multidisciplinary healthcare approach.
In particular, iDXA uses bone density analysis to track the relationship between fat and lean muscle tissue, as changes in weight alone cannot always tell the full story. With this tool, patients with eating disorders can glean a full understanding of how their body is responding to treatment and potentially stave off complications such as osteoporosis.
Athletes. Athletes can benefit from iDXA analysis to help track body fat distribution over time, a key factor in maintaining an optimal training program. Bathroom scales and BMI tables cannot accurately tell the difference between muscle and fat, and monitoring actual body fat composition over time can help an athlete reach peak performance.
iDXA has a broad range of applications for both monitoring chronic illnesses and helping healthy individuals reach their optimal body fat percentages. This cutting-edge technology gives health care professionals a level of insight not previously available and opens the door to new ways of monitoring the effectiveness of treatment therapies.
Be aware that just keeping track of weight and BMI may not be enough to show the benefits of healthy choices. Body composition analysis with GE Healthcare’s dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (iDXA) is a quick and convenient way to see how improving diet, exercise, and lifestyle can change your body. With accurate and precise fat, lean, and bone measurements of each body segment, a GE iDXA body composition analysis can help you achieve your goals by reporting tangible results.
