Services Provided by a Brick, NJ Chiropractor
Chiropractic care is more than just back cracking. It's a modality that includes various techniques like instrument assisted adjustments, spinal decompression, intersegmental traction therapy, and exercise therapy. At ShoreLife Chiropractic & Wellness, serving Brick, NJ and the surrounding area, we offer family chiropractic care that acts as a treatment rather than just a pain relief method.
One of the main treatments in our family chiropractic care is spinal alignment. We offer both manual adjustments and instrument assisted adjustments. Either chiropractic treatment consists of our chiropractor moving the vertebrae in your back. This helps our chiropractor to realign the discs back to the spine. Ultimately, this relieves pressure on the surrounding nerves and soft tissue. The manual adjustment just consists of our chiropractor moving the vertebrae manually.
Spinal Decompression Therapy
We offer spinal decompression therapy, which helps with disc injuries and various other conditions. During the procedure, our chiropractor situates you on a special table. It has a mechanical device that our chiropractor connects you to, which has pulleys and other rigging. It stretches your spinal cord to relieve pressure on the discs. This allows blood to flow freely to the discs while also gives the disc room to heal.
Our chiropractor may recommend you undergo exercise therapy. During this treatment, our chiropractor asks you to go through a series of exercises that work the area where you are hurt. The exercises are paced so that you can properly heal and not experience a great deal of pain. Slowly, the exercises work your muscles and other soft tissue. This builds strength and flexibility to promote healing and reduce your pain.
Before we start treatment, we may recommend you undergo digital imaging, such as digital x-rays. We capture digital x-ray pictures so that we can see where you are experiencing pain. Digital x-rays and other imaging also allow us to see if you have an injury or if you're experiencing degeneration as a result of aging.
We provide various other treatments to help you recover and reduce your pain. For instance, we may connect you to intersegmental traction therapy. This helps relax your muscles and gives your spine a good stretch.
Our Brick chiropractor can educate you on ways to lift properly in order to prevent an injury in the future. Our treatment plans are different for each individual because not everyone is the same. We want you to experience the fullest lifestyle as possible.
