Our primary focus is to provide treatment that is corrective so you do not have to depend on us for care but rather utilize us as your healthcare professional to keep you well. Our office provides a complete approach of active care, exercise rehabilitation, and nutrition to allow patients to reach their healthcare goals and expectations. We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These correction methods are even safer, more comfortable, and more effective than ever before. As Doctors of Chiropractic, Dr. Klena and Dr. Matthews have 50 combined years of training and experience in Chiropractic and rehabilitation.
Acupuncture, simply stated, is a health science which is used to successfully treat both pain and dysfunctions in the body. Acupuncture has its roots deeply planted in China. In fact, authorities agree the science is between 5000 and 7000 years old. However, acupncture did not become known on a national level in the United States until 1971 when diplomatic relations between China and America were relaxed. Early Chinese physicians discovered there is an energy network traversing just below the surface of the skin which communicates from the exterior to the internal organs and structures at over 1000 "Acupoints" on the body. This energy works in harmony with the body's circulatory, nervous, muscular, digestive, genitourinary and all other systems of the body. When this vital energy becomes blocked or weakened, an effect in a body system or anatomic location becomes evident. Stimulation of one or a combination of key "Acupoints" on the body may restore harmony to the effected area. The human body's energy flow courses over twelve meridians or channels that are normally well balanced. If a disruption of energy flow exists, it can alter the entire system, producing pain or symptoms in the body. Treatments vary with different conditions and individuals. Chronic problems generally require more treatment than acute ones. Some patients notice an immediate improvement after the first treatment, whereas others may not notice any effect until the seventh or eighth visit. Western Medicine's philosophy of Acupuncture is that the immune system is activated and goes to that area to stimulate healing. Setting philosophies aside, Acupuncture is gaining ground in the healthcare world for conditions such as migraine headaches, tendonitis, nausea, low back pain and sciatic, fibromyalgia, immune enhancement, fertility and other systemic disorders.
The kinesio taping method has taken the rehabilitation and and sports medicine world by storm! This tape works in many ways including:
This taping procedure is especially ideal for:
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises are either performed in the comfort of your own home or, if more specific exercise training is needed, we will supervise an exercise program with our spinal specific weight loaded exercise machines. These exercises are a necessity to your spinal correction and drastically improve the effectiveness of your results. In addition, we have a trained staff to address flexibility deficiencies that have become chronic as a result of skeletal misalignment or imbalance. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. To reach true wellness is a collaborative effort between our professionals and our patients.
At Idaho Chiropractic Group, we provide specific recommendations on the highest quality nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient's return to optimal health. Not all supplements are created equal so we have done our research to find which companies products utilize the highest manufacturing standards and whose products have the highest absorption rate.
"Insufficient vitamin intake is apparently a cause of chronic diseases. Recent evidence has shown that suboptimal levels of vitamins (below standard), even well above those causing deficiency syndromes, are risk factors for chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, and osteoporosis. A large portion of the general population is apparently at increased risk for this reason."

To complement and enhance the healing effects of Dr. Klena and Dr. Matthews specific Chiropractic adjustment treatment, we at Idaho Chiropractic Group also provide the following physiological therapeutic procedures:
I'm a young and fairly active woman. I started having a pain in my hip area and thought it was a pinched nerve or something. This went on about once a month for about four months. The pain was getting stronger every time this would happen. The last time it happened the pain was so bad it put me into tears! I didn't want to go to a doc in the box because I figured they would just prescribe me pain pills and not fix the problem... whatever that would be. My Office Manager suggested that I go to Dr.Klena. She and the staff here at my new job all used him. Idaho Chiropractic got me in first thing in the morning and took good care of me. Come to find out it was from a previous car accident and when I had started playing golf four months earlier I was just irritating that hip and inflamed some tissue in that joint. Dr.Klena made a complete plan for me that included adjustments, ultra sounds, stretching and strengthening on top of a payment plan! I'm fixed and so grateful that they could do it without medicating me.
Thank you Dr.Klena and Staff!
