Our doctor carefully and skillfully examines your spine to determine the best course of treatment. Diversified spinal and extremity adjustments is one of the most widely used forms of adjustment that we use. This hands-on, Springfield, IL spinal decompression technique helps create motion in spinal joints with the goal of restoring structure and function. Extremity adjustments are adjustments to joints that are not contained in the spine. These would include jaw, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, finger, hip, knee, ankle and foot. Like the spine, these extremities develop joint dysfunction which describes a joint that has reduced motion, abnormal muscle tone, inflammation, scar tissue or arthritic changes. Once restoration of motion has been returned to the extremity, there is often reduced pain, improved motion, relaxed muscles, reduced nerve interference and promotion of healing.
Chiropractic spinal decompression therapy in Springfield, IL, also referred to as nonsurgical decompression, involves stretching the spine, using a traction table or similar motorized device, with the goal of relieving back pain and/or leg pain. Spinal decompression devices use the same basic principle of spinal traction that has been offered by chiropractors, osteopaths, and other appropriately trained health professionals for many years. Both traction and decompression therapy are applied with the goals of relieving pain and promoting an optimal healing environment for bulging, degenerating, or herniated discs.
