National Championship Air Races

Our Summit Chiropractic and Longevity Center chiropractor Dr. Kent Carlomagno is not only an experienced and skilled chiropractor, but he also makes a big presence in our San Rafael local community and other communities in the nation.
For the second straight year, Dr. Kent Carlomagno attended the 2013 National Championship Air Races, which were located at RenoStead Airport on September 15th.
Here, Dr. Carlomagno put his chiropractic skills to good use when he had the honor of of adjusting his patient, friend, and fellow pilot colleague Thom Richard, who was suffering with cervical (neck) stress syndrome before the races as a result of barely landing in time before the close for unlimited pilot registration.
Our chiropractor, Dr. Kent Carlomagno, provided an adjustment to pilot Thom Richard in his cervical and thoracic area, providing the highly regarded pilot mental clarity, focus, and a release of the pain and tension he was experiencing.
As for the races, this was the 50th Annual National Championship Air Races. The event is held around the same time every year, providing races for over 200,000 spectators and aviation enthusiasts.
We are always happy to be apart of such events. To get an adjustment from the same chiropractor who adjusted an esteemed pilot, visit us in San Rafael, CA.
Yours in Good Health,
Dr. Kent Carlomagno

New Neuropathy Care

Many of our patients here at Summit Chiropractic and Longevity Center suffer from neuropathy, which causes pain, numbness, tingling, or burning sensations in their feet and leg. It is the result of various types of medical conditions, including diabetes, certain medications, chemotherapy, and pinched nerves of the spine.

Chiropractic care is a highly successful treatment for neuropathy through our new neuropathy care program. Treatments are provided right here in our clinic, making it convenient for current and new patients to receive other types of care along with treating their neuropathy.

We provide multiple treatment options for new neuropathy care, including spinal compressive therapy, adjustments and manipulations, and massage to help with overall health and relief. Additionally, we have special devices cleared by the FDA to treat neuropathies, and use cold laser therapy as a treatment option.

Dr. Kent Carlomagno also believes proper nutrition and regular exercise help to further prevent future occurrences of the condition. A combination of treatments is used for the most effective results.

Worker's Compensation

Workers’ compensation injuries are any type of injury that happens while on the job. Examples include a delivery driver having an auto accident, an office worker suffering a repetitive motion injury (such as carpal tunnel syndrome), or a construction worker harming their hand with a power tool. Many injuries require more than just emergency medical treatment; they need chiropractic care for continued relief of pain and discomfort.

Chiropractic care here at Summit Chiropractic and Longevity Center helps with the following types of workers’ compensation injuries and more:

1. Fallen objects.

2. Slipping, tripping or falling.

3. Physical altercations at work.

4. Repetitive motion injuries.

5. Vehicle accidents.

6. Machinery and electronic accidents.

7. Overexertion and exhaustion.

Dr. Kent Carlomagno begins care by identifying the issue and any underlying medical problems and addressing them together. In some cases, he figures out the chronic back pain is actually not just from overexertion at work, but because the spine is out of alignment. Through an adjustment and therapeutic massage, the entire body finds relief and the patient can return to work.

If you are in need of workers’ compensation care following an work-related accident or injury, visit us in San Rafael, CA.
