How Each Treatment Modality Helps Healing and Pain Relief for Communities of Harrisburg, Hershey, Progress, Colonial Park, Lower Paxton, and Grantville, PA
Manual spinal adjustments help realign the spine to its proper position. When spinal discs are out of proper position, they can irritate each other, impinge on surrounding nerves and cause pain. With spinal adjustments, patients can experience pain relief from bulging disc, herniated disc, sciatica and soft tissue injuries. Depending on your condition, spinal decompression therapy may be integrated into your treatment plan. This therapy takes place on a motorized traction table controlled by a computerized device. It gently stretches the spine to create more space between spinal discs. Decompression therapy takes about 30 minutes and is totally relaxing. As a matter of fact, some patients even fall asleep during this treatment.
Massage therapy is the ideal adjunct treatment to spinal adjustments. It loosens the muscles to accept the adjustment. In addition, it increases oxygen and blood flow to the injured area for faster healing, relaxes muscles, reduces muscle spasms and boosts the body’s immune system.
