Chiropractic Care Services in Irvine for Pain Relief and Wellness

Chiropractic care goes beyond relieving the obvious symptoms to correct the underlying problems causing those symptoms. Painkillers can only provide temporary pain relief (along with side effects), but Irvine chiropractor Dr. John Lee’s gentle, precise spinal care, combined with our other natural treatment services, generates long-term healing and wellness from within for lasting relief.

Our Chiropractor Provides Natural Injury Treatment and More

Dr. Lee’s injury relief treatment services work together to address pain and dysfunction from multiple directions at once. This protocol accelerates healing and helps you get back to an active, pain-free life faster. The following are some of the services our chiropractor and his team provide:

Chiropractic Care

Dr. Lee has extensive training and success using a wide-range of chiropractic care techniques, tailored to the specific needs of each patient. These techniques address subluxations in different ways to relieve pinched nerves and intervertebral discs suffering from too much pressure. Our chiropractor uses the following techniques:

  • Palmer Method
  • Gonstead Technique
  • Diversified Technique
  • Cox Flexion-Distraction Technique
  • Sacral Occipital Technique
  • Activator Method

Dr. Lee can use one or more of these methods, depending on your specific needs, to provide relief and stimulate healing for back pain, neck pain, bulging and herniated discs, headaches, migraines and so much more. In fact, regular maintenance chiropractic adjustments can help you maintain optimal wellness and prevent future injury and pain.

Therapeutic Exercises

Our chiropractor coaches each patient on specific stretches and exercises designed to accomplish full healing of your injury or chronic condition. These exercises are designed to retrain and strengthen weak, injured tissues, improve flexibility and range of motion, and bolster your core strength so that you can better maintain healthy posture. Blending chiropractic care with these exercises significantly improves outcomes over spinal adjustments alone by toning the soft tissues that support your spinal structure, enabling you to avoid future discomfort.

Massage Therapy

Our chiropractor works directly with an amazing massage therapist here in our Irvine office. Therapeutic massage accelerates healing by relieving musculoskeletal tensions that aggravate posture problems. It also rushes fresh nutrients and oxygen, via improved circulation, to damaged tissues. Massage also reduces pain naturally by relieving stress and releasing endorphins into your system. Furthermore, it even reduces inflammation at the cellular level. Our licensed massage therapist is skilled in the following techniques:

  • Myofascial release
  • Swedish massage
  • Sports massage
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Deep tissue massage

Lifestyle Recommendations

Dr. Lee treats the “whole person” not just one isolated injury or chronic condition. To help his patients become fully well, he will make recommendations about aspects of your lifestyle that may be aggravating your condition in order to help you mitigate and avoid stressors. He may, for example, recommend a more ergonomic computer desk setup, give you tips for improved form during your workout, or discuss better sleeping and nutrition habits.

Nutrition Counseling

Speaking of nutrition habits, these are essential to your health and healing. Getting too many “empty calories” and not enough nutrients can slow the healing process, aggravate inflammation and lead to fatigue, weight gain and many other health problems. Our chiropractor can discuss your individual nutritional needs, help you develop a holistic nutrition and supplementation plan and support you as you make healthy changes.


Our chiropractor can also boost and accelerate the healing process through several of the latest technological developments in healthcare, including:

  • Interferential electrical muscle stimulation
  • Pre-modulated electrical muscle stimulation
  • Ultrasound
  • Cryotherapy
  • Mechanical traction
  • Intersegmental traction
