Chiropractic

Dr. Meg Bryne - Brand Photos - Aug2020-24

Chiropractic manipulation is used to release restricted joints in both the spine and the extremities. Joints often become restricted due to poor posture, improper biomechanics, and/or injury. A joint that is restricted leads to excessive motion in nearby joints, which may ultimately lead to degeneration of the joint. Therefore, restoring movement and function in all joints is a preventative procedure for future degeneration and dysfunction.

Dr. Byrne uses manipulation and mobilizations as taught by the Motion Palpation Institute, the leader in biomechanically sound, evidence-based chiropractic manipulation techniques. For a low-velocity technique that does not provide the audible release (cracking/popping sound), Dr. Byrne has additional options for her patients. These techniques include: flexion/distraction, Thompson drop, activator, and end range loading.

Additional tools Dr. Byrne utilizes: laser therapy, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, dry needling, and cupping.

Definition of Naturopathic Medicine: Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care profession, emphasizing prevention, treatment, and optimal health through the use of therapeutic methods and substances that encourage individuals’ inherent self-healing process.  The practice of naturopathic medicine includes modern and traditional, scientific, and empirical methods (excerpt from AANP House of Delegates Position Paper, Amended 2011)

​Principles of Naturopathic Medicine: The following principles are the foundation of naturopathic medical practice:
1. Treat the Whole Person: Naturopathic physicians treat each patient by taking into account individual physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, social, and other factors. Since total health also includes spiritual health, naturopathic physicians encourage individuals to pursue their personal spiritual development.
2. First Do No Harm (Primum Non Nocere): Naturopathic physicians follow three guidelines to avoid harming the patient:
- Utilize methods and medicinal substances which minimize the risk of harmful side effects, using the least force necessary to diagnose and treat;
- Avoid when possible the harmful suppression of symptoms; and
- Acknowledge, respect, and work with individuals’ self-healing process.
3.The Healing Power of Nature (Vis Medicatrix Naturae): Naturopathic medicine recognizes an inherent self-healing process in people that is ordered and intelligent. Naturopathic physicians act to identify and remove obstacles to healing and recovery, and to facilitate and augment this inherent self-healing process
4. Identify and Treat the Causes (Tolle Causam): The naturopathic physician seeks to identify and remove the underlying causes of illness rather than to merely eliminate or suppress symptoms.
5. Doctor as Teacher (Docere): Naturopathic physicians educate their patients and encourage self-responsibility for health. They also recognize and employ the therapeutic potential of the doctor-patient relationship.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a system of healthcare aimed at naturally promoting health and alleviating sickness through the stimulation of very specific anatomical points, known as acupuncture points, throughout the body.

These points generally lie along meridians, or energy channels, that run through and along the surface of the body. It is believed that pain and sickness occur when these channels become blocked, and that these blockages can be removed through the stimulation of acupuncture points. In modern day acupuncture, this stimulation is achieved by superficially inserting sterile, super thin, disposable needles into these points. This may be done with or without the addition of gentle needle manipulation, heat, or electricity to further stimulate the points and break up the obstructions.

Dr. Byrne most often performs acupuncture for patients with: breeched pregnancy, infertility/IVF, depression, anxiety, hormone balance, digestive disturbances, PMS, headaches/migraines, and joint pain.

Nutritional Counseling

Nutritional Science is the study of the biochemical and physiological process by which an organism uses food to support its life. Nutrition includes ingestion, absorption, assimilation, biosynthesis, catabolism and excretion of nutrients. Nutritional counseling is the prescription of a personalized eating plan that promotes health and minimizes risk and/or symptoms of disease. Nutrition is a complex and ever-changing field of medicine and often requires a trained professional to understand its nuances and associations with health and disease.  Registered Dietitians (RDs) are the food and nutrition experts who can translate the science of nutrition into practical solutions for healthy living.

Dr. Brock has been studying nutrition for over 30 years, starting with her time as an undergraduate in Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University. As a Registered Dietitian, Dr. Brock has experience with a variety of gastrointestinal conditions and disorders and chronic diseases with a nutritional component.  On a personal level, Dr. Brock has struggled with thyroid auto-immunity that caused her to gain over 150 lbs in 3 years time and has since created an individualized exercise and diet plan and lost approximately 120 lbs.

Dr. Brock is thoroughly experienced with creating nutrition care plans for patients with: Crohn’s, colitis, IBS/IBD, celiac disease, GERD, gas and bloating, dysbiosis, obesity, auto-immune conditions, diabetes mellitus, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, renal failure, migraines, infertility and all types of eating disorders.  Dr. Brock works with pediatric and adolescent patients with failure to thrive, “picky” eating, weight management and eating disorders.
