Microcurrent Therapy at Summit Chiropractic and Longevity Center

In addition to chiropractic adjustments and treatment, many chiropractors choose to use a variety of holistic and non-invasive procedures to help increase their patients’ health and decrease their pain. Microcurrent therapy is once such procedure. It utilizes low-level electrical currents and is applied in short therapy sessions, which are excellent for facilitating the healing of both acute and chronic pain. In San Rafael, CA, we use this type of therapy as a compliment to chiropractic treatment for increasing the speed of our patients’ healing while also decreasing their pain and rate of illness and injury.

Each tissue in your body has its own electrical frequency, and these frequencies can be disrupted by an injury. Microcurrent therapy alleviates pain and inflammation and helps the tissue heal by restoring tissue to its normal cellular frequency. It does this by sending a very small amount of current to the injured area. If you are suffering from muscle spasms, the current can help relax the muscle and return it to its normal state. The therapy also increases protein synthesis and ATP, which is the energy that fuels biochemical function at the cellular level. Both help accelerate healing. 
Treatment usually involves several sessions and can benefit a range of conditions, from arthritis, headaches, fibromyalgia, headaches and neck pain to neuropathy, sciatica, shingles, slow-healing wounds, tendon and ligament pain and back pain. 

If you are looking to increase your health or treat soft-tissue injuries or another conditions caused by an accident, chiropractic and microcurrent therapy can greatly benefit you. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Kent Carlomagno by calling (415) 721-7520. For more information, please visit

Children’s Chiropractic in San Rafael, CA

Today more and more parents are seeking chiropractic care for their children, and with so many health issues beginning with birth, it’s not hard to see why. Colic, breathing problems, nursing difficulties, sleep disturbances, allergic reactions and chronic infections can often be traced back to the nervous system stress created by the spinal and cranial misalignment that occurs during the birthing process. Chiropractic care provided by Dr. Kent Carlomagno can correct this misalignment and improve your infant or child’s health in San Rafael, CA.

Chiropractic care can benefit an infant soon after birth and all throughout their childhood. As an infant grows, there are many activities—learning to hold up the head, sitting, crawling, walking—that can cause more spinal misalignments to occur. As your child is mastering these activities, Dr. Carlomagno can check and correct their alignment to keep them healthy and happy.
As the child grows older and begins to participate in regular childhood activities, such as skating or riding a bike, small but significant subluxations can develop, which, if neglected, can lead to more serious problems later in life. Subtle trauma caused during childhood can affect development, making correction necessary for a long and healthy life.

Pediatric chiropractic care can enhance your child’s health and promote proper development. Come to Summit Chiropractic and Longevity Center to help your child live a healthier life. Call (415) 721-7520 to schedule an appointment. For more information, please visit

If you’ve been injured at work and traditional medicine isn’t doing enough to help you, chiropractic is a great solution for dealing with injuries and their underlying causes.

The difference between treating the symptoms of an injury and fixing the underlying cause is the difference between temporary pain and a chronic issue.

Whiplash is a term applied to injuries that occur to the neck when it is whipped in one direction and then jerked in another. Although this injury is common during auto accidents, it can also be incredibly damaging. Many whiplash injuries involve sprains—which happen when the ligaments that support, protect and restrict vertebral movement are torn—and strains—which occur when muscles and tendons in the neck are stretched beyond their normal limits. Even the discs between vertebrae in the cervical spine can be torn with whiplash, resulting in disc herniation.

The most common symptoms of whiplash include pain and stiffness in the neck and headaches at the base of the skull, and these symptoms can last for weeks or months, and even years if left untreated. Here at Summit Chiropractic and Longevity Center, Dr. Kent Carlomagno can provide quality chiropractic care to accelerate healing and ensure that your injury does not persist. With adjustments and soft-tissue treatment, he can help control your pain and reduce any muscle spasms.

If you’ve been in an automobile accident, our office in San Rafael, CA can ensure that your accident doesn’t cause you pain long after it’s over. Call (415) 721-7520 to schedule an appointment. For more information, visit
