Spinal Decompression Therapy

Non-surgical spinal decompression utilizes a specialized decompression table to relieve debilitating pain due to fixated, bulging, degenerating, or herniated vertebral discs, subsequently enabling surrounding tissue to freely move back into place and heal.

Acoustic Sound Wave Treatment

The Miracle Wave® Acoustic Sound Wave is a cutting-edge, non-invasive acoustic treatment system utilizing sound waves (acoustic pulses) initiating a healing effect on musculoskeletal aches and pains due to chronic or repetitive stress injuries.

Nutritional and Fitness Counseling

You are what you eat, how you move, what you think, and even how you sleep.  Working in conjunction with Chiropractic, our comprehensive nutritional counseling program addresses your overall well-being, guiding you back on track to a vibrant, fit, and rejuvenated you.

Holistic Injury Rehabilitation

The latest research shows that long term successful and sustainable injury rehabilitation must encompass the entire musculoskeletal system.  Our Chiropractors believe in the whole body approach to rehabilitation to include all related joints, muscles, tendons, and nerves.

Whole Body Vibration

WBV has been an accepted form of exercise in many Chiropractic and Physical Therapy clinics, gyms and other healthcare facilities. It is beneficial for several reasons including enhanced proprioception, muscle fiber recruitment, and increased muscle tissue blood supply.

Rejuvenating Therapy Spotlight

Acoustic Wave Therapy treats a variety of conditions and helps improve patient outcomes including, but not limited to:

  • Chronic or Acute Musculoskeletal Pain
  • Poor Circulation
  • Limited Range of Motion
  • Soft Tissue Injury & Damage

The best part? Treatment with non-invasive acoustic sound wave results in little to no side effects and no downtime. This means you are able to quickly resume daily activities and lifestyle. No more worrying about post-treatment side effects.

Because the average human head weighs 10-12 pounds, the farther forward your head is positioned from the center of your body, the harder your neck, shoulders and back must work to keep you upright. If left untreated, Forward Head Posture can lead to chronic headaches, neck, shoulder, and back pain from overworked muscles; strained ligaments and tendons; and the slow degeneration of joints and discs in your spine due to compressive and shearing forces.

Intermittent fasting has gained popularity for its potential health benefits. While research on the long-term effects of intermittent fasting is still ongoing, some of the potential benefits that have been observed include:

1. Weight Loss and Fat Reduction: Intermittent fasting can help individuals reduce their caloric intake, leading to weight loss. By limiting the eating window, intermittent fasting encourages the body to use stored fat for energy during fasting periods. This can lead to a reduction in body fat and improved body composition.

2. Improved Insulin Sensitivity: Intermittent fasting may enhance insulin sensitivity, which means the body's cells become more responsive to insulin, the hormone responsible for regulating blood sugar levels. This can be especially beneficial for individuals at risk of type 2 diabetes or those with insulin resistance.

3. Cellular Repair and Autophagy: During fasting periods, the body may initiate a cellular repair process called autophagy. Autophagy is when cells remove damaged components and recycle them, promoting cellular health and potentially protecting against various diseases, including certain cancers.

4. Brain Health and Cognitive Function: Some studies suggest that intermittent fasting may have positive effects on brain health and cognitive function. It may promote the production of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a protein that supports brain health and neuroplasticity, potentially reducing the risk of neurodegenerative diseases.

5. Cardiovascular Health: Intermittent fasting may have positive effects on cardiovascular health by reducing risk factors such as blood pressure, cholesterol levels, triglycerides, and markers of inflammation. These factors are important for heart health and may lower the risk of heart disease.

Is Arthritis avoidable or is it just something we are going to have to get used to as we get older? In fact there have been several recent studies that suggest that age is not necessarily the determining factor for Arthritis, but actually lifestyle choices like levels of activity, carrying excessive amounts of body weight over long periods of time that put excessive stress and strain on the joints of the knees, hips and low back, or unresolved sports or work related injuries that were never properly diagnosed and treated.

Find out about the most common type of mechanical low back pain. Learn about low back pain as a result of facet joint inflammation, limited range of motion, micro-trauma, weight gain, muscle tension, fixation and alignment issues, and how to correct and alleviate Lumbar Facet Syndrome.

00:00 - Introduction to Lumbar Facet Syndrome
01:27 - Symptoms
02:53 - Causes
08:49 - Solutions

Causes/Etiology:
Lumbar Facet Syndrome is a referred pain pattern that arises from the irritation of the lumbar facet joints innervated by spinal nerves of L1-L5. Lumbar facet joint syndrome refers to a dysfunction at the level of the posterior facet joints of the spine due to inflammation, joint restriction, and joint surface degeneration.

- Lack of flexibility in the low back
- Facet imbrication (jamming of facet joints)
- Tight muscles, ligaments, tendons decrease facet joint movement
- Osteoarthritis
- Significant weight gain and protruding abdomen that changes the bodies center of mass
- Change in stress on low back and facet joints
- Hyperlordosis of the lumbar spine that reinforces poor posture
- Left untreated can lead to a fibrosis and bony osteophyte formation
- Most common cause is repetitive microtrauma and a result of this chronic degeneration
- Irritation can also occur when the intervertebral disc is damaged and the biomechanics of the joint have changed. In this case the facet joints are exposed to a higher loading and compressive forces

Common Symptoms:
- Pain is localized in the low back and sacrum
- Pain is characteristically dull and achy
- Can be chronic if not addressed
- Stiffness and limited range of motion
- Pain on Extension (backward bending) - due to facet joint compression
- Pain on initiating movement
- Getting out of chair and standing up
- Moving from a fixed position
- Guarding and Apprehension due to pain on movement
- May cause you to walk in a hunched over position / antalgic / guarding posture
- Relief on Flexion
- Antalgic in certain positions, forward leaning/bending
- Usually non-radiating pain into legs except in extreme cases
- Can be confused with a vertebral disc issue and sciatic pain patterns

Early stages:
- Sudden acute pain in low back may happen several times a year without warning
- Not connected with an injury
- Pain may not last long and seem to go away on its own
- Muscles react to painful movement by “guarding” and become increasingly more tense and strained.

Possible Treatment Options:
- Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy (CMT) and therapeutic Range of Motion mobilization
- Leander Flexion/Distraction Table Treatment
- Diet/Weight loss to restore Lumbar curve and decrease loading on facets
- Core strength and conditioning to decrease hyperlordosis
- Physical Therapy to increase ROM and Strengthen muscles that support lumbar spine
- Stretching and active exercise programs to support other therapies.
- Identify and eliminate Mechanism of Injury if chronic or episodic
- Posture re-education and ergonomic evaluation for both work and home
- Injections & Surgical intervention for extreme cases

Find out about the most common type of Headache. Headaches as a result of tight neck muscles, old injuries, muscle tension, fixation and alignment issues, and how to correct and alleviate Cervicogenic Headaches (CGH).

00:00 – Introduction to Cervicogenic Headaches
00:47 – Symptoms
01:51 – Causes
03:33 – Solutions

Causes/Etiology:
Cervicogenic Headaches are a referred pain pattern that arises from the irritation of upper cervical spinal structures innervated by spinal nerves of C1-C3. These structures, the joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles that are innervated by the C1, C2 and C3 spinal nerves are thought to be the source for a cervicogenic headache.

In addition, the lower cervical spine can play an indirect role in referred pain production if loss of normal range of motion is present, but there is currently no clinical evidence of a direct referral pattern. The cervical facet joints of C2 and C3 have been shown to be the most common sources of Cervicogenic pain especially in patients with a history of whiplash or other significant neck trauma.

Common Symptoms:
- Unilateral dominant headache (Can be bilateral and mimic migraine headaches)
- The headache pain is often described as non-pulsating, dull, tightening, or pressing
- Pain is exacerbated by neck movement or chronic poor posture
- Tenderness of the upper 3 cervical spine joints on palpation
- CGH patients tend to have increased tightness and trigger points in sternocleidomastoid, levator scapulae, scalenes, upper trapezius, and suboccipital extensors
- Weakness in the deep neck flexors is common

Possible Treatment Options:
- Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy (CMT) and therapeutic Range of Motion mobilization
- Physical Therapy Modalities as an adjunct to CMT
- Stretching and active exercise programs to support other therapies.
- Manual Trigger Point Therapy or Trigger Point injections
- Identify and eliminate Mechanism of Injury if chronic or episodic
- Posture re-education
- Ergonomic Evaluation for work, home, and sleep habits

Dr Mark is awesome. Does a great job listening and providing targeted treatments to deliver better range of motion and quality of life
No need to spend any more time researching chiropractors. I can assure you Mark is the best you're going to find.I've seen Mark over the past year for some challenging issues, and he's been a tremendous help throughout. He's the best for a few reasons:1) As experienced as they get. He's been doing this for a long time and has seen just about everything by now.2) He listens and really cares. He really takes the time to understand your symptoms and find the right treatment plan. I've yet to find someone that genuinely cares about his patients / clients (in any area) as much as Mark does.3) He's comprehensive in how he treats you. Most other chiropractors do a few quick adjustments, maybe some e-stim and you're on your way in 10 minutes. Mark is great with adjustments but he does so much more than that when it comes to working on your body. Spinal decompression, traction of my lower back, trigger point work; he does a little bit of everything to get you back to your best.I rarely write reviews, but after seeing so many chiropractors that I've had disappointing experiences with, I think it's important to highlight how helpful Mark is.
Dr. Mark Larinde has been helping me for several years with my neck issues and all around issues associated with being a dancer/choreographer. He is wonderful at identifying the exact point of trauma and addressing it. Not only do I get relief from each visit, but he gives me personalized exercises to help heal and overcome my issues.Dr. Mark's warm and friendly approach is wonderful and he helps calm your muscles down prior to the adjustments, which is super helpful!Thank you Dr. Larinde at the Center for Health and Longevity!
This is the best chiropractor I've ever had! I'm a professional ballet dancer and he has helped me with so many issues! I leave feeling better than ever every time!
Dr Larinde is a kind, excellent, thorough practitioner. His workspace is fabulous with easy parking. Highly recommend Dr Larinde.
Dr Mark is a great chiropractor, with an added bonus of being a great human being. He has helped me tremendously. When I was in a lot of pain after a sudden injury - he made sure I could be seen quickly and effectively. I’m not comfortable with sudden adjustments. Dr Mark, respects that and goes slow and asks if I’m comfortable with what he is doing.Beautiful office space, extremely knowledge chiropractor and a kind person - if you’re looking for a chiropractor I highly recommend.
dr Mark is very knowledgeable and spends lots of time with you each visit. I always feel better!
I would recommend them to anyone!
Dr. Mark is phenomenal. Takes great care, shares specifics of what he is doing and educates in the process, highly recommend. And the office is beautiful, clean, bright with great new equipment.
Dr Mark is an excellent chiropractor. He takes time to understand what your concerns are and is careful to treat you in a individual way that addresses your needs. My whole family go to him - even my husband who does not like having his neck cracked, swears by him for his treatments. In addition he is an extremely nice guy who goes out of his way to fit you in. His new offices are really nice, clean and modern. I highly recommend him.
I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Larinde. I do a lot of dance and kickboxing - both of which can leave my neck and shoulders very tight. Not only do I feel like Dr. Larinde has corrected my alignment and increased my range of motion at the conclusion of each visit, but he is also one of the kindest people I have come across. He has an intuitive sense of what needs attention and I have never felt rushed through a visit; instead he has always taken his time to give me the best care possible because he genuinely cares about helping his clients heal and feel better. The icing on this chiropractic cake, is that he has a beautiful office with plenty of parking. He is a rare find and is worth the effort I make to commute across town for our sessions.
I am so grateful to have had Dr Mark Larinde recommended to me! I am 74 years old, a time of increasing aches and pains. I am active, exercise regularly and Dr Mark keeps the pains to a minimum! He is not of the old crack-crack-crack chiropractic school—a school where over the years I’ve been periodically hurt more time than I care to remember—but instead employs myriad other ways of stretching, loosening, adjusting, relaxing and healing areas of the body. And he’s a great guy. I can’t recommend the Center for Health and Longevity highly enough!
Dr Mark, I feel so much better! Impressive results for only two sessions with you. My neck has not felt this good in a very long time. You are one in a million ~ Thank you!
Dr. Reichardt is amazing.The services promised helped me and my lower back, as well my ongoing migraines have eased away. I love the new decompression machine. His office staff is very friendly and accommodating.
Dr. Chris and Dr. Mark are amazing.
Very friendly and extremely professional. Within 10 mins, Christian understood my problem, explained it, and began treatment. After the 1st visit, I felt pain relief that I was seeking for almost 2 weeks. I highly recommend Christian and his team to anyone.
Best chiropractor hands down! Been coming to Dr Reichardt for over 7 years. He's freed me of my chronic lower back pain. Highly recommended!
Always the best experience. Friendly, Genuine, and they know what they are doing. A++++
When I first came Doctor Reinhardt, I was in so much pain I thought I might have a hernia. After seeing him once a week for a month and doing the exercises he’s shown me I’m able to go running and swimming pain free.
Professional services given by a very talented Chiropractor
I could barely go to work when my sweet cousin dragged me into your office! Now I have been going almost two years and because you do such great work, I am still able to work! My thanks to EVERYONE in the office!!! My quality of life is so much better because of all of you!!!!!!
The Best of the best. Hands down
Dr. Reichardt is hands on the best chiropractor on the West Coast, perhaps in the world!
I have been a patient of Dr. Reichardt's since the early 80's when he began his practice out in Malibu.If it were not for his expertise, I never would have been able to dance, snow ski, or ride a horse - and may have been disabled for the rest of my life.Christian Reichardt is a top of the line Sports Medicine Chiropractor, whose skills deserve world wide recognition. He has patient's flying in from all over the planet literally. He is well known in Golf circles.Christian Reichardt is truly a gifted, talented and compassionate individual.Sincerely,Ms. Donna Lauber
Best chiropractic service I've ever been to!
Dr Reichardt is a healer with a generous spirit, patience and passion for his patients! He has impeccable knowledge of the mind- body connection . Having been a patient of his for years, he has helped me rehab old sports injuries , create an individualized exercise program, and has championed my implementation of a healthier lifestyle. He just seems to "know" what's going on with you! I love this office!
He is very professional, funny and knowledgable. I would highly recommend him if you are looking for a Dr that cares about his patients and their wellbeing.
