imageChiropractic Care

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 newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As Doctors of Chiropractic, Dr. Tom Hewitt and Dr. Ryan Samuelian have years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.

imageCorrective Exercises

We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them 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 by as much as 30-40%. 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.  These exercises augment the state of the art Med-X Spinal Rehabilitation available onsite in the Back to Basics spinal conditioning center.

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. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.

Therapeutic Deep Tissue Massage:

Massage therapy is for the body and mind.  It relaxes the muscles and relieves the stress and strain of daily life while improving circulation and calming the senses.  Deep Tissue Therapeutic Massage goes far beyond the purely relaxational massage often found in a traditional spa setting.  By targeting specific tissues, our therapists are able to increase blood supply and nutrition to muscles encouraging repair and breaking down or preventing the formation of adhesions and fibrosis between fascial layers.  Therapeutic Massage additionally acts as a "cleanser" by stimulation of the lymph circulation, and improving the elimination of wastes and toxic debris.  Tissue nutrition is enhanced due to increased blood flow through muscle tissues, all without adding to the toxic lactic acid build-up that results during voluntary muscle contraction; thereby helping prevent the build-up of the harmful fatiguing products that are a result of strenuous exercise or injuries.  Therapeutic Massage can also increae red blood cell count and improve the circulation and nutrition of joints and hasten the elimination of harmful deposits.  Many people experience a sedative or stimulating effect on their nervous system depending on the type of treatment given.  By returning venous blood to the heart, massage can ease the strain of this vital organ in ill or aged individuals, and additionally reduce edema of the extremities (swelling and fluid retention in feet/hands).  The Massage Therapists at Back to Basics are the best in Newport Beach and most have had many years of experience.  They are all great at working with both elite athletes and in the rehabilitation of injuries, or in enhancing the everyday health and wellness of all of our patients.  Come and experience for yourself just how good a Back to Basics massage really is . . .
