Our treatment modalities include spinal adjustments, spinal decompression, massage therapy, physical therapy, acupuncture and laser therapy.

Chiropractic Care Treatment at Chiro-Med Health & Wellness Centers

With gentle, manual adjustments, our experienced team of Crestwood chiropractors can move the spinal discs back into its proper position. It takes the stress off of surrounding nerves and muscles. Many patients experience some level of pain relief after just one chiropractic adjustment. If the discs are compressed, we may recommend spinal decompression therapy. This type of therapy takes places on a traction table with rollers and is computer controlled. It helps increase the space between the spinal discs to eliminate irritation as well as neck and back pain.

Massage therapy is the ideal complementary therapy to a chiropractic adjustment. It relaxes the muscles and prepares the body to accept the chiropractic adjustment. Plus, it increases blood supply and oxygen to the injured area for faster healing and reduces muscle spasms. Laser therapy is a good treatment option for soft tissue injuries. The laser’s beam is focused on the injury and penetrates the deep skin tissues to reduce pain and accelerate healing. Acupuncture entails the placement of hair-thin needles along the body’s meridian to eliminate pain.

Physical therapy treatment plans are created with corrective exercises to treat specific conditions, such as osteoporosis and soft tissue injuries. It may also include ultrasound, heat/ice packs and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulator (TENS) units. TENs units mask back pain and can be used at home. Ultrasound is similar to laser therapy but uses sound waves to deliver deep heat for pain reduction and tissue healing.
