Treatment and Services
Chiropractic is a branch of the healing arts which is based upon the understanding that good health depends, in part, upon a normally functioning nervous system. Chiropractic emphasizes the idea that the cause of many disease processes and abnormalities begin with the body's inability to adapt to its environment. It addresses these abnormalities by locating and adjusting a musculoskeletal area of the body which is functioning improperly, rather than by the use of drugs. Although chiropractors make no use of drugs or surgery, they do refer patients for medical care when necessary.

Why Decompression Therapy is So Effective
The computerized traction head and doctor skill are the keys. Proper assessment and the use of preprogrammed patterns of distraction and relaxation may permit disc material to be pulled back within the normal confines of the disc and allow healing to begin.
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
Spinal decompression is a non-surgical, traction based treatment outcome for herniated or bulging discs in the neck and low back.
Effective for Many Spinal Conditions
Anyone who has back, neck, arm or leg pain caused by a degenerated or damaged disc may be helped by spinal decompression.
These conditions include herniated or bulging discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica, facet syndrome, spondylosis or even failed spinal surgery.
Decompression Therapy Sessions
In almost all cases, the treatments are completely painless. In fact, many people fall asleep during the spinal decompression session. The number of sessions needed and your specific treatment plan will be determined by the doctor after your examination. To reduce inflammation and assist the healing process, supporting structures may be treated with therapy, chiropractic adjustments if indicated, and/or rehabilitation.
