What your chiropractors in Tampa, Florida want you to knowback pain

If you have back issues, you know how debilitating they can be. You live in constant fear of pain, so you limit your movements. You may have stopped playing sports, and you may even be afraid to lift a bag of groceries! It’s time to take back your life. It’s time to discover what the DRX9000 can do for you. Your chiropractors at Sheldon Road Chiropractic & Massage Therapy in Tampa, Florida want to share the facts about this revolutionary spinal decompression device used to treat back pain and back problems.

The DRX9000 stretches out your spine by using negative pressure on the painful area. Your spine is lengthened, releasing compressed discs and reducing or eliminating pressure on your spinal nerves. Oxygen flow is increased, which increases joint function and flexibility.

During your visit, you will lie on your back on the DRX9000 table. The machine gently stretches your spine and you may experience immediate relief during treatment. Because treatment is gradual, several treatments are needed to fully resolve your back pain and regain your spinal health.

Treatments are gentle, comfortable, and non-invasive. There is little or no downtime, which means you can get back to your daily life.

Spinal decompression treatment can help relieve pain from:

  • Pinched nerves in your spine
  • Bulging or herniated discs
  • Bone spurs
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Spinal stenosis

If you're looking for a way to manage your pain, you'll want to consider massage. The hands-on therapy has been used for thousands of massage therapyyears to decrease both pain and stress. Dr. George Kollias and Dr. Karen Derr in Tampa, FL explain how you can benefit from a massage.

A completely natural pain relief method

Muscular pain is common if you've been in an accident or experienced an injury while participating in a sport, but the pain can also occur if you have poor posture or spend hours working on a computer. A massage not only feels good but actually helps your body heal faster. In addition to loosening tight muscles, massage improves blood circulation, making it easier for oxygen to get the cells in your muscles. Enhancing lymph system circulation boosts your immune system and facilitates the elimination of waste products and extra fluids.

Endorphins, your body's natural pain killers, are released when you have a massage. The chemicals inhibit the pain response and also improve your mood and sense of well-being. Have you ever noticed that everything seems to hurt when you have tight muscles? The tighter your muscles, the more they press on tendons, nerves and ligaments. Massage offers other important benefits. It provides a natural way to treat headaches and can help you sleep better.

Massages decrease your stress level

Muscle tension is a common response to stress. Although your muscles can become tight very quickly, it takes much longer for them to relax. Massage eases the tension in your muscles, which helps you relax and de-stress. After a massage, you'll have lower levels of stress hormones and higher levels of serotonin, a brain chemical that plays an important role in mood regulation. A National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health meta-analysis of 17 clinical research trials revealed that massage may also be helpful in reducing depression.

Put yourself in the hands of professionals

Performing an effective massage requires a thorough knowledge of human anatomy and the interaction of muscles, nerves, joints, ligaments and tendons. When you visit our Tampa office, you'll meet with one of our certified massage therapists who will discuss your symptoms and tailor your massage to address your pain.
