We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing modern chiropractic techniques to reduce pain and increase joint and soft tissue mobility.
Spinal Decompression describes the use of a therapeutic pulling force (traction) on the spine to relieve pressure on the discs and vertebrae.
Spinal discs are essentially tiny sponges filled with water. During the day when we are walking and sitting, gravity compresses our discs, which over a period of many years can leave them thin, dry and brittle.
When that pressure is relieved through decompression therapy the discs are able to absorb moisture and become thicker to provide adequate cushioning for the vertebrae.
Spinal Decompression therapy is currently being used around the world to treat such painful conditions as sciatica, muscle spasms, spinal stenosis, facet joint, herniated/bulging discs and degenerated discs.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Dr. James Murphy can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
