What do chiropractors do? Chiropractors are medical practitioners that assess, diagnose and treat many different issues with the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractic care focus mainly on manual adjustments of the spine to help relieve pressure and pain and increase mobility.
When you visit our chiropractic clinic, Dr. Festa or one of our other chiropractors will create a custom treatment plan that will get to the root cause of your pain and provide you with the all-natural pain relief you’ve been looking for.
Chiropractic adjustments consist of manipulating misaligned joints so they are back in alignment and any pain and pressure are relieved.
We will perform short lever thrusts on specific joints that release gas and pressure.
When the gas is released from the joint, it makes an audible crack, which is the sound often associated with chiropractic treatment.
Chiropractic adjustments are made by using the arm or a specialized tool, and they are an all-natural, non-invasive way to get your body back into alignment, reduce pain and improve your mobility.
Some of the issues that respond well to chiropractic adjustments include herniated discs, arthritis, degenerative disc disease and trauma from accidents or other means.
Chiropractic care treats the underlying cause of your pain and doesn’t just mask the symptoms with pain medication. The result is lasting pain relief and a more active lifestyle.
Spinal Decompression for Back & Neck
Spinal decompression is a treatment we offer here at Optilux Wellness that's designed to relieve pain in your neck and back that may be caused by injury or a degenerative condition.
The idea is to stretch your spine gently to take the pressure off nerves and discs.
It is a form of spinal traction where you lie on a table and a harness wraps around your hips and attaches to the bottom of the table where your feet are positioned.
The top part of the table remains fixed in place while the lower half moves back and forth to alleviate pressure. This helps to improve blood flow and nutrients and restore the natural space between vertebrae.
Massage Therapy and Chiropractic Care
Massage therapy is an effective way to promote pain relief through the manipulation of soft tissues in the body.
One of our other licensed massage therapists will use their hands to work on your sore muscles. They have also been known to use elbows, forearms, and knees of the situation calls for it.
Massage therapy is an all-natural way to relax and heal your body. Massage often makes an ideal complement to chiropractic care.
