Adjustments & Manipulation
A chiropractic adjustment, also known as chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation, is the primary chiropractic treatment method for back pain. This process relieves pressure on joints, reduces inflammation, and improves nerve function and is a trusted treatment method dating back to Ancient Greek writings 1500 B.C. Today, spinal manipulation is used to treat conditions such as allergies, menstrual cramps, and headaches.
There are well over 100 types of adjustment techniques used by chiropractors throughout the world. Some practitioners may use force and twisting, while other techniques are much gentler. Regardless of how they're performed, these techniques intend to restore or enhance joint function in order to reduce pain and eliminate inflammation.
When vertebrae shift out of place, there is a systemic response from the muscular system to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow, our nerves, immune system, and minds cannot function at their highest peak. Overall, spinal adjustments and manipulations are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level without any discomfort. When the body is adequately aligned, it's better able to respond and perform as it was built to do.
Treatment time and frequency will depend on each patient's unique condition. However, each spinal decompression treatment is usually about twenty minutes. Patients usually have treatment a few times a week and are typically finished with treatment within eight weeks.
If you are living in pain from a herniated or bulging disc, we will work with you to find a spinal decompression treatment plan that corresponds with your body. Instead of turning to dangerous pain medications that just covers up the problem, ask us if spinal decompression can help you.
Back pain due to a herniated or bulging disc can be debilitating, and in the past, surgery was the answer. Today, we have highly successful, advanced technology that allows us to relieve this pain without surgery.
We use a system that combines a machine with an exceptionally precise computer program created and supervised by one of our expert staff members. Using this technology, we create a custom treatment plan that decompresses the spine and pulls the herniated or bulging material back into the disc.
When in use, this program gently stretches and relaxes the spine in rotation. Over time, this separates the vertebrae, creating a vacuum-like effect that pulls the soft bulging disc material back into the disc. This not only alleviates discomfort but also remedies any additional pain caused by pressure put on the nerves, including sciatic leg pain.
Therapeutic exercises are specific exercises meant for correcting certain problems. Depending on your particular concern, your chiropractor may give you a list of exercises to perform to reduce discomfort. The focus of therapeutic exercise is to regain flexibility, strength, and endurance related to specific physical problems.
These exercises aim to improve, restore, and prevent loss of physical function. It can also improve a patient's overall health, fitness, and sense of well-being. Additional objectives of therapeutic exercise include:

No matter what type of exercise is prescribed to remedy a patient's specific condition, the final goal of rehabilitation is to acquire a maximum level of physical fitness, without the use of more invasive methods. Therapeutic exercise can be performed on your own, giving you the power to improve your quality of life in the comfort of your own home.
