The feet are the base for your body function, but they’re often overlooked when it comes to caring for them properly! In fact, a large amount of lower extremity issues can be traced back to your feet and arch problems.
Grote Chirporactic offers Foot Levelers which are functional orthotics that support all 3 arches of the foot that make up the plantar vault. They’re custom-made by hand based on your unique feet, body and health profile. Just as no two bodies are alike, no two pairs of Foot Levelers custom orthotics are alike.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
Spinal & Postural Screenings

You are always welcome to bring your family member or friend with you to your appointment for a individual screening. Contact us today at (260) 724-2510 to arrange a screening.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation
Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) is a treatment method being used to reduce pain, swelling, and recovery time. This increasingly popular treatment works well for soft tissue injuries, muscle spasms, and even for athletes who want quicker recovery from workouts. Grote Chiropractic utilizes High Voltage Pulsed Current (HVPC).
This treatment is performed here in our office, and usually only takes a few minutes. Electrical muscle stimulation creates tiny contractions in the muscles so they become tired and relax, relieving pain and muscle spasms. In addition, it triggers the release of endorphins, which are our body’s natural pain reliever. The process is also said to clear metabolic waste so nutrients can be better delivered and soft tissue can heal more quickly.
Electrical muscle stimulation works well for both acute and chronic pain. If you have been struggling with pain or have recently suffered an injury, ask us if electrical muscle stimulation is right for you.
Ultrasound is a therapy that is utilized in the office to handle injuries related to joints, muscle spasms, as well as most soft tissues. While it shares the same name, this ultrasound is not the same as the type of ultrasound utilized diagnostically to screen internally in the body. This ultrasound creates small sound waves that in effect vibrate and massage soft tissues and muscle. These sound waves do an excellent job in facilitating the body's healing process in addition to decreasing scar tissue formation.
Certain ultrasounds also create a heating effect to help relax the muscles or tightness in the body. This heat combined with the overall features of the ultrasound help to start the healing process at the most basic cellular level speeding up your road to recovery.
Often times patients have neck or back pain that results from having compressed nerves, disc herniations, or disc bulges.
Grote Chiropractic administers a state-of-the-art spinal decompression machine that distracts specific areas of the spine. This relieves pressure on spinal nerves, increases nutrient flow, and decreases pain associated with spinal disc problems.
If you are living in pain from a degenerative or bulging disc, we will work with you to find a spinal decompression treatment plan that corresponds with your body. Instead of turning to dangerous pain medications that just cover up the problem, ask us if spinal decompression can help you.
