Located in Pacific Grove, Dr. Deena Hakim and her staff are committed to helping patients lead a pain free lifestyle. Our office specializes in the integration of Chiropractic treatment with muscle work. This dual therapy approach allows the body to better accept the adjustment while ridding the body of scar tissue that can delay results. Dr. Hakim designs a treatment plan that addresses your symptoms and gives you the tools to change your posture through active care and exercises. There are weekend appointments available as well.
Dr. Hakim's treatment focuses on mobilization of the joints with muscle relaxation.
Chiropractic is more effective when the muscles are addressed concurrently with adjustment. To better serve her patients she uses myofascial release (a deep tissue therapy that breaks up muscle adhesions and scar tissue) with trigger point work and stretching. Dr. Deena Hakim also believes strongly in active care and gives her patients exercises to do at home that complement the treatment in the office.
A patient who does the active care will get better faster than those who rely on the treatment alone. The combination of adjustment and muscle therapy in the office works for most patients, but is especially suited to those with chronic conditions related to posture or activity.
Dr. Hakim strongly believes in taking time with her patients, therefore a regular treatment is usually 30 minutes. Dr. Deena Hakim has had continued success in her practice when treating the following conditions: Headaches, neck pain, low back pain, sprains/strains, herniated discs, carpal tunnel syndrome, thoracic outlet syndrome, sciatica, TMJ syndrome, repetitive stress syndrome, sports injuries and arthritis.
