Manual and Instrumental Spinal Manipulation
Scenic Health & Chiropractic in Pensacola has been successfully providing high-quality chiropractic care to patients since 1993. We are passionate about the health and wellness of our patients. We offer a variety of treatments for several different musculoskeletal and neuromuscular conditions. We strive to help our patients live their best lives through the application of natural and holistic chiropractic treatment. Chiropractors are medical professionals who treat musculoskeletal and neuromuscular disorders. They’re doctors who diagnose and treat patients without the use of pain medication or surgery.
Conditions of the Back and Spine
Whiplash is a neck injury caused by the forceful and sudden jerking motion of the head in one direction and then another, such as might occur in a car accident or when participating in a sport. Some common symptoms of whiplash are pain and stiffness in the neck, headaches, pain in the shoulders or upper back, tingling in the arms, dizziness, and fatigue.
Slips and Falls. Hazards such as icy walkways or wet leaves can cause your legs to slip out from under you, landing you on your back. This type of fall can lead to strained back muscles, spinal misalignment, or disc injury.
Heavy lifting that’s not done properly can result in a herniated, bulging, or ruptured disc that may put pressure on the spinal nerves. This can cause back pain as well as pain throughout the body which can be treated by a chiropractor.
Subluxation is a dysfunctional misalignment of two or more vertebrae that can cause pain and immobilization. This too can be treated using chiropractic care.
- Tension headaches
Work-related and Sports injuries
- Repetitive Motion. These common injuries are related to the overuse of tendons and most commonly seen in the workplace and while playing sports. Workers and athletes who repeat the same motions for a long period can wear down the internal lubrication surrounding the tendons, causing inflammation and pain.
Many patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) have been found to also have herniated thoracic discs.
Chiropractic Treatments and Techniques
- Adjustments. Manual manipulation using gentle sudden force applied to the spinal joint. This is a very common chiropractic treatment used to relieve pain in the back and neck and to treat headaches.
- Spinal Decompression. This is typically used to relieve disc pain. It’s a gentle stretching of the spine using mechanical traction devices.
- ART. Active Release Technique (ART) is used to relieve scar tissue from muscles. When a chiropractor combines this with spinal manipulation it can relieve lower back pain.
