Services We Offer
A chiropractor and/or back therapist can be your best friend. Statistically, most people (25% of the US population!) suffer from some type of mild to moderate lower back pain from spinal injury or just plain wear and tear, which can affect blood pressure, circulation, and heart rate. Recurring episodes are common as is chronic discomfort.
Many are afflicted with osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, and bone spurs. It may be a question of genetics and your family history; or simply over exertion and undue pressure on the spine. In any case, with us help is at hand. Surgery is a little scary and painkillers are dangerous and addictive. Your lumbar joints will be in good hands with us. We offer spinal compression, physical therapy, cold laser therapy, and tried-and-true chiropractic adjustments to help you feel better and less stressed in no time flat.
If your spine reflects the ravages of age and gravity, exacerbated by poor posture and an increasing distance between vertebrae, we can help. Your range of movement can be improved while you experience better alignment. Muscular and joint stability will follow as you partake in a therapeutic routine.
High on our list of techniques is the increasingly popular spinal decompression. It is a new and effective way to treat sciatica, and herniated and degenerative spinal disc disease. There is no surgery or drug treatment required, making it a safe and attractive option for most people. Literally, spinal compression results from bone fragments from a vertebral fracture.
As a therapy, it refers to a non-surgical, non-chiropractic method of relieving back pain using a decompression table that helps exerts force slowly and incrementally to the afflicted area (compressed disc). Managed by a computer, the treatment involves alternating periods of force and relaxation to gently pull apart and elongate the spine. The disc heals, returns to normal, and is strengthened against future injuries.
We offer many approaches to physical therapy for intermittent back pain. Some types of stretching and repetitive exercise can relieve symptoms promptly. Physical therapy is vital in the treatment of disabled patients and those recovering from spinal surgery. It is often combined with other therapies to promote a better range of skeletal motion and spinal flexibility. As the spine is the support of body weight, it is the focus of a great deal of physical therapy that also involves the limbs and torso.
Sports injuries and the resultant chronic pain are prevalent with males who respond well to specialized physical therapy. Our patients enjoy a major improvement after treatment and can usually return to their normal athletic endeavors. After a round of therapy, a maintenance program can be created to prevent future episodes by strengthening weakened areas of the body.
The back, neck, and shoulders are targets for stress, causing tensing of muscles resulting in potential aches and pains. Our program of acupressure and/or massage is the perfect antidote for distress. There are many soothing varieties. Not only does it feel wonderful, but massage benefits overall health and well-being while addressing issues of the spine.
Cold Laser (Low Level Laser Therapy)
If you hate injections and the side effects of medications, cold laser is for you. As an outpatient treatment, it is convenient, pain-free, and cost-effective. For acute and chronic conditions to reduce pain, swelling, and spasms, a device emits non–thermal photons of light to a targeted area below the skin surface from thirty seconds to several minutes.
A licensed chiropractor may utilize any and all of the methods discussed above and they may specialize in a particular modality. With us, you are selecting one who understands your needs and specific physical condition. We interview you carefully in order to decide appropriate options that are gentle, safe, and effective. Our practitioner assesses your condition and establishes a good diagnosis so that a customized program of care ensures a faster recovery and for a longer duration between back pain episodes.
