COMPREHENSIVE SPINE CARE
Comprehensive spine care is begins with chiropractic mobilization. This instrument is used to restore normal function to problematic joints in the body. After a thorough history and examination our doctors will evaluate their findings to determine if you are a good candidate for care. This process includes determining which type of treatment would be most complimentary to your specific needs. The area of joint dysfunction is identified and mobilized to increase motion and circulation. The adjustment stimulates a specific bed of sensory receptors that inhibit the feeling of pain as well as providing mobility to the joint. This allows surrounding tissues to rehabilitate in conjunction with neuromuscular training and reeducation. Soft tissue therapy in combination with modalities such as traction, TENS, and cryotherapy, (diathermy) are also used. These methods have be shown to be highly effective in decreasing pain and improving flexibility.

NON-SURGICAL SPINAL DECOMPRESSION
Non-surgical spinal decompression is a program developed specifically for those who have been diagnosed with a disc bulge, disc tear, and/or acute/chronic neck and low back pain. Disc dysfunction and facet joint irritation can cause an array of symptoms such as low back pain that travels into the legs, burning, swelling, sciatica, etc. In the neck, there may be numbness or tingling in to the hands.The doctors uses a special table to allow for an increase in motion to the targeted facet and disc to create a vacuum like phenomenon to increase fluid back into the disc, thus allowing the herniation/bulge to re assume its normal position while hydrating and providing essential nutrients to repair the tear. This program is also an excellent choice in considering alternative options prior to spinal surgery, as well as post surgery maintenance. Not only is it safe, it is gently and relaxing. Each session lasts typically 20-30 minutes. This program usually runs 6 to 8 weeks with most schedules being 2 visits per week or 20 visits total.
Our doctors are boards certified to perform physical therapy in the office to complement and enhance the treatment given to promote long lasting results. In the event a more rigorous program is needed, we will coordinate care and refer to a skilled physical therapist. Therapies offered on site include but are not limited to:
