We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. Our Doctors of Chiropractic have years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
Spinal decompression therapy, also known as non-surgical spinal decompression therapy, is a painless, conservative, and effective way to treat back and neck pain, sciatica, stenosis, and degenerative disc disease. It involves a slow controlled stretching of the spine, using a computer aided traction table. This slow gentle stretching creates negative pressure within the discs of the spine creating a vacuum that helps pull the discs material back into place, thus taking pressure off of pinched nerves. It also draws in nutrients, oxygen, and fluids back into the disc to create an optimal healing environment.
It is called non-surgical decompression therapy because surgical spinal decompression consists of procedures such as laminectomy and microdiscectomy. Non-surgical decompression therapy has none of the risks of surgery, such as, infection, drugs or anesthesia, which can be associated with surgical decompression. Patients find that undergoing non-surgical spinal decompression therapy, their down time is minimal, but the resolution of symptoms are long lasting.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
