Usually pain or a sustained injury is what brings people to a Chiropractic office. In most cases, pain occurring in our back and neck is a result of altered bio-mechanics in our body from our daily activities. Such activities may include poor posture, bending, sitting, walking, running, lifting weights, sleeping without proper support, or stress. It is these daily stresses that Chiropractic focuses on which will ultimately help alleviate the symptoms one might be experiencing. Whether your pain is chronic or sudden in nature, or the result of an accident, our staff at Daniel Family Chiropractic is committed to doing everything we can to alleviate you of your current symptoms and steer you in the right direction.
Visiting a doctor when you are feeling great is a new concept for many people. Wellness is the process of taking the steps to obtain and maintain an optimal state of health and wellbeing regardless of whether something is wrong. The wellness approach toward healthcare looks for physical, chemical and emotional disruptions in the body that may or may not be causing symptoms. If these issues are ignored long enough, symptoms may ultimately manifest. This preventative approach has been steadily growing amongst the Chiropractic community. Wellness has physical, nutritional, and emotional components that all need to be balanced and synchronized. While focusing on keeping your musculoskeletal and nervous systems functioning at their best, all health and wellness components are addressed here.

Spinal decompression is a gentle, Chiropractic treatment procedure designed and used for low back pain. Flexion decompression is a traction based therapy in which the doctor is in full control of the treatment at all times. By decompressing the spine, we are able to increase disc space and decrease disc tension resulting in a very rapid relief in symptoms. Spinal decompression is safe and an excellent alternative to back surgery for the vast majority of patients that do not need surgical intervention. It may be used for many low back conditions including disc herniation, disc bulge, disc degeneration, sciatica, failed back surgery syndrome, and spondylolisthesis.
An Activator instrument is a non-forceful adjusting tool used as an alternative to traditional manipulation of the spine. We typically offer this form of treatment to patients with bone-weakening conditions as they find the activator to be gentle and effective.
Physical Therapy Modalities
We believe physical therapy modalities to be an essential form of therapy for various conditions. Such modalities include ultrasound, interferential current, pre-modulated current, high volt therapy, combo therapy, heat, bio-freeze, ice, and therapeutic exercises.
Myofascial Release Techniques
We use several different muscle techniques including active release and post isometric relaxation. During these techniques, both the doctor and patient work together to help repair damaged soft tissue within the body. Myofascial Release Techniques are particularly therapeutic methods for athletes encountering sports related injuries such as tendonitis and overuse syndrome, however they can benefit almost anyone.
