Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is the most widely used conservative therapy in the world! Over 8 million adults and 2 million children use chiropractic care each year. Chiropractic care focuses on the relationship between the skeletal system and the surrounding nervous system.  Whenever there is stress on the spine or other joints, it can directly affect the nervous system, and with enough irritation patients can start to produce symptoms such as pain, numbness, decreased range of motion and muscle weakness.  The main treatment method used is the chiropractic adjustment.  This technique varies chiropractor to chiropractor, however, the main goal of the adjustment is to restore proper joint range of motion, alleviate nervous tissue irritation, and restore proper joint biomechanics to eliminate compensation.  The most common causes of spinal irritation and joint compensation are previous injuries, poor posture, sublte microtraumas that accumulate and family history.  All of these reasons must be taken into consideration for the treatments to be effective.  As chiropractors it is important to look at the entire body and evaluate from a physical, chemical and emotional viewpoint to fully understand why each patient is experiencing their symptoms!

Flexion Distraction is a non-invasive therapeutic technique aimed at relieving pressure and stress on the spine for a multitude of conditions.  It is non-invasive and gentle.  It requires a special table that moves in all three planes; flexion and extension, lateral flexion and rotation.  The doctor will apply gentle pressure on the spine, then move the table in specific directions to restore proper motion in your spine.  The end result is creating a negative pressure inside the disc allowing the damaged material to heal faster and properly.

Flexion-Distraction is designed for treatment of intervertebral disc injuries, but it is also very effective in treating arthritis, facet syndrome and lower back pain.  The treatment is painless and most patients feel immediate relief when the pressure is taken off the spine and surrounding nerve tissue.

The Activator Techniques are instrument driven manipulations using tools to provide the therapy, rather than the doctor's hands.  These techniques are utilized most often with pediatric and geriatric patients.  There are, however, patients who prefer a more gentler adjustment.  Using the Activator still provides the benefits of an adjustment, it is just delivered in a gentler way. 

The doctors at Back To Wellness Chiropractic will evaluate your health, your health goals and your comfort level with chiropractic care and make suggestions before providing any adjustments.  For more information about the Activator and the research that shows it effectiveness, please CLICK HERE.

I know there is so much controversy between chiropractic and medical care, but if it were not for chiropractic I would still be in pain. A car accident left me with constant lower back pain. I tried everything from painkillers to preparing to have surgery. I heard stories from my friends who had surgery and to this day wish they never had it. So I decided to go to a chiropractor before the surgery and I am so thankful that I did. My back pains are gone and I am living my life to the fullest and pain free.

I came to Back To Wellness Chiropractic and Acupuncture after a friend referred me for the injuries I had after my car accident. I have seen tremendous results relieving the neck problems related to the car accident. What I am most excited about is a 5 year intense pain in my ribs that has been greatly diminished after Dr. Derry's adjustments. Thank you!

Dr. Derry has given me different stabilizing exercises and at home care techniques to keep me well between my wellness adjustments.

I decided to schedule an appointment with Dr. Derry because my lower back was hurting and I was also having upper back and neck pain. I now have no lower back pain! My neck has drastically improved as well. All of Dr. Derry's adjustments have helped with my migraine headaches!

My back pain was preventing me from walking and causing numbness into my leg. I started care with Dr. Derry and have seen less pain in my lower back which aids in my sleeping and also I am back to taking walks for exercise.

I started care with Back To Wellness because I was having persistent neck pain and found Dr. Tanja's adjustments to be amazing. I continue to receive treatments to maintain my health and functionality while doing things. It's nice not hurting so much!

I am a former professional golfer and started care with Dr. Derry because I was having golf related shoulder and neck pain. These issues stemmed from a previous surgery on my left shoulder. I went through Dr. Derry's TPI program and have been feeling great... no pain, playing better golf and sleeping much better!
