Does Spinal Decompression really work?

Spinal Decompression has been proven effective in relieving the pain associated with bulging and herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and even relapse or failed back surgery. Since its release, clinical studies have revealed an amazing success rate in treating lumbar disc related problems with Spinal Decompression.

How does it work?

Spinal Decompression provides relief to chronic back and neck pain sufferers by painlessly reducing the pressure within spinal discs. The vertebrae of the spine are slowly forced apart during Spinal Decompression therapy. As the vertebrae are separated pressure is slowly reduced within the disc (intradiscal pressure) until a negative vacuum is formed. This vacuum pulls the body's own natural element into the wounded area and has even been shown to

DIOWAVE Deep Penetrating Laser Therapy™ Treatments

In sharp contrast to “Cold Lasers” (LLLT or Low Level Light Therapy) which provides no feeling or sensation, patients FEEL each DIOWAVE Deep Penetrating Laser Therapy™ treatment, as it works to provide laser light energy deep into the body to reach damaged cells and tissues. Results are typically faster than many other therapeutic modalities and patients often report signs of improvement after the first or second treatment.

Both acute and chronic injuries respond well to the DIOWAVE Deep Penetrating Laser Therapy™ treatment. Inflammation and swelling are quickly reduced to allow a greater range of motion in the affected area. This helps to regain activity and mobility while reducing scar tissue and adhesions which can slow recovery and healing. Sick and injured tissues are restored to optimal strength and vitality, providing greater functionality and preventing re-injury.

The cell membrane permeability is altered, which triggers a cascade of cellular events including:• Stimulation of ATP• Stimulation of respiratory chain• Increased DNA and RNA synthesis• Increased levels of beta endorphins and serotonin• Enhanced collagen synthesis.

Getting adjusted changed my life for the better in so many ways!

I've always been into being healthy and active, but true health eluded m until I discovered Chiropractic. I suffered from the "Normal Stuff": daily headaches, heartburn and IBS.

Then I developed severe nerve pain from a bulging disc in my neck and found a chiropractor to help me. My nerve pain was gone. Soon I realized that so were my headaches, heartburn and IBS.I realized this was my calling and went to Palmer Chiropractic School in FL to start my new life. I have advanced certifications in spinal correction and nutrition. I have a passion for health and wellness, nutrition, supplements, and exercise. My mission is to make every family as healthy as possible without the need of drugs or surgery.
