Non-surgical spinal decompression is commonly used for degenerative, bulging, or herniated discs in your neck or low back. Spinal decompression uses mechanical traction to gently stretch the spine. This takes pressure off of the joints, discs, and nerves. During this treatment, you will lay on a special table while we control it through a computer. A session typically consists of 15 one minute periods of decompression or "stretching", with a one minute relaxation cycle in between for a total of 30 minutes. Decompression allows your discs to hydrate which provides them with necessary nutrients for healing. It also helps alleviate pressure on surrounding joints and nerves that may be causing pain.
Corrective exercises specific to your problem can help get you out of pain faster and maintain your results longer. When appropriate, an individualized plan of easy to follow exercises will be given to you for you to do at home. Corrective exercises aid in the healing process and strengthen your muscles to prevent future injury. This means, less time in the office and more time doing what you love, all while being pain free.
ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUE
Muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia can become "tight" or develop scar tissue from a multitude of things including overuse injuries, joint restrictions, or traumas. Manual therapy helps relax the muscles and bring blood flow to the area for proper healing. The doctor will stretch the affected area in a specific way to restore mobility to the area.
Graston Technique uses stainless steel tools and emollient to find adhesions or "knots" in the fascia that surrounds your muscles. The tools allow the doctor to apply a deeper therapy to the area than hands alone can do. The tools help "comb" out the knots and bring blood flow to the area to promote healing.
Cold laser therapy utilizes a low level laser to emit wavelengths of light that penetrate the affected tissue. The laser stimulates the tissue on a cellular level to begin the healing process and reduce inflammation and pain. You won't feel anything during the treatment, but it will provide fast and positive results.
