Chiropractic treatment and alternative medicine
A chiropractor focuses primarily on the spine and its relationship to the nervous system, building upon a few fundamentals. Biomechanical problems with the spine affect the nervous system and may have far-reaching effects on other areas of the body. We can address multiple spinal issues and conditions through regular manual adjustment of the spine.
Problems with the alignment of the spine may manifest in different ways. Watch for these symptoms. Any or all of the following symptoms are treatable with the appropriate chiropractic care:
- Frequent use of pain medication
- Tingling or numbness in legs or arms
- Whiplash from a vehicular accident
The spine plays a central role in how our bodies work. Not only are they the main support structure of the skeleton, but the spine is home to and protect some of the most important neurological tissue in our bodies. Treating spinal issues reduces pressure on vital neurological tissue and can improve the overall health of the patient.
Conditions we can help treat
Many neuromuscular and other physical conditions are treatable using chiropractic care, including symptoms directly and indirectly related to spinal issues. Lower back pain is one of the most common reasons that people visit a chiropractor. An adjustment is often an effective way to relieve stress and discomfort in the back. Similarly, neck pain is often related to issues with the spine.
Headaches and repetitive strains throughout the body may also be treatable with chiropractic care. Although these may not seem to be directly related to the spine, they can be due to various issues with the neurological system. As a chiropractor, Dr. Nick Viscusi, DC can examine the patient and determine if we can address these issues with chiropractic care.
Many people also visit chiropractors for help with sports and accident injuries. Recovery from an injury can be a long road, especially if spinal problems are involved. Chiropractic care can not only relieve the pain associated with these injuries but also aid in the healing process.
We offer noninvasive chiropractic services and take any necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our patients. Chiropractic solutions may be valuable alternatives to more aggressive and risky treatment options. The initial appointment begins with a consultation and examination. If appropriate, we will perform adjustments to help address the condition using some of these techniques.
- Spinal decompression
- Manual therapy
- Therapeutic massage
- Spinal Manipulation
Many health issues related to the spine are caused or worsened by compression. Spinal decompression therapy helps to relieve the pressure between spinal discs, neurological tissue and vertebrae in the spine. This decompression helps to improve the flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients to the areas, promoting healing. While manual therapy involves physical adjustments by hand, they can help improve the positioning and functionality of the spine.
Even though massage therapy is available, it is a professional therapeutic massage. Unlike the type of massage one may get from the spa, this one focuses on recovery. In some cases, spinal manipulation can improve flexibility and alignment and relieve pain.
Spinal manipulation can be an effective way to treat issues with the discs between the vertebrae in the spine, which may lose their vitality with age. In most cases, patient’s treatment plans include one or more of the above treatments.
At, Disc Centers of America Napa, we take a comprehensive approach to a patient's health. Our treatment plans are rarely limited to the techniques we use in the office. Patients can further chiropractic relief by improving their diet, exercising and learning to manage their stress. Improving the body's overall wellness can improve neuromuscular conditions and vice versa.
