In some instances, you may be better benefited by manipulation under anesthesia (MUA). These are chiropractic adjustments that are performed while you are lightly sedated. We offer this treatment to individuals who have chronic, painful conditions, like arthritis, severe back and/or neck pain and muscle problems, like spasms and short muscles. Our MUA treatment is performed at a local Ambulatory Surgery Center for your safety.
Spinal decompression treatments are performed on a decompression table. It is used to help with back and neck pain caused by herniated discs and pinched nerves. During your session, you will lay on the decompression table with a belt around your waist. Our chiropractor will adjust the table to maximize the effectiveness of the results. While you are undergoing spinal decompression, the table will provide a gentle force in order to lengthen certain sections of your spine to give your discs the room they need to heal. As your discs heal, you will experience improved range of motion of your back and less pain.
