Chiropractic Adjustments Following a thorough consultation and
examination, the primary treatment received by most of the people
receiving care is the chiropractic adjustment. This involves
identification of misalignments of the spine and extremities. Upon
identifying these misalignments, a combination of techniques,
personalized to the individual, are used to realign these problem area,
restoring proper motion to the joints and removing neurological
interference. For more information about the chiropractic adjustment,
please visit the Chiropractic FAQ's page.
Accident Injury Care Unfortunately,
accidents happen, it's just reality. What many people don't realize is
that, with accidents, come injuries. Even a minor little fender bender
in your twenties that left you a little sore for a few days, if left
untreated, can come back to haunt you later in life or can leave you
more vulnerable to more severe injuries in the case of additional
accidents in the future. This is why, at least getting evaluated by a
chiropractor is so important following an accident, whether it's a car
accident, work related accident, slip and fall on the ice, sports
injury, or anything of the like. In the case of car accidents and work
injuries, there is little to nothing out of pocket for you, the patient,
and it can play a huge role in returning to work and normal life
activities. If you've been in a car accident and have limited
transportation, our doctors will even
come to your house to treat you.

Low Level Laser Therapy Low
level laser therapy is a type of treatment that is still making a name
for itself. The laser uses infrared light technology to reduce pain and
inflammation, as well as speeding up cell turn over, which increases
the rate of healing. It is great for acute soft tissue injuries, like
whiplash, or any kind of sprain or strain, as well as the chronic pain
of arthritis. The technology was developed as a source of pain control
for astronauts on the space station, so that supplying medication
wouldn't be as necessary. There are limitless applications for this
therapy, and the best part...you don't feel a thing!
Flexion-Distraction Traction Flexion-distraction traction is a way of inducing passive motion into the spine for the
purpose of stretching spinal joints, increasing mobility.
How does it work? The patient
lies face down on the table specially designed for this type of therapy. The doctor than performs the traction manually by strapping the patient's legs to the table with velcro straps and, after releasing a lock on the table, the doctor can tip the table down or turn it side to side with one hand and applying pressure to specific joints with the other. By applying pressure to specific joints, the doctor can provide targeted treatment to specific areas or injuries. This traction can help to stretch out the lower spinal joints and take pressure off of tired discs and muscles.
What does it feel like? Most
patients find this form of treatment to be relaxing and very helpful.
The best description would be that it feels like a gently, targeted stretch. For some people, there can be an element of pain along with it, depending on your situation, although Dr. Libby and Dr. Joanna work very hard to perform this treatment in a way that is both effective and comfortable.
Why is it used? Since discs have
a poor blood supply, they get nutrients from the circulation of fluids
surrounding spinal joints. Fixations prevent this natural circulation
and can cause disc thinning and degeneration. Flexion-distraction traction
helps increase and restore necessary elasticity and motion to the
