Our DRX9000 spinal decompression treatment can alleviate back pain and other problems.

Have you been diagnosed with a herniated disc, degenerative joint disease, sciatica, or other back problems? If so, then you may feel like back painback pain, stiffness, and other problems are just a normal part of your every day, but they don’t have to be. Our Tampa, FL, chiropractors - Dr. George Kollias, Dr. Elizabeth Gionfriddo, and Dr. Autumn Scaz - are here to tell you how our DRX9000 spinal decompression device could finally provide you with the pain relief you’ve been looking for.

What is spinal decompression therapy?

Spinal decompression treatment is a safe, effective, and non-invasive therapy to alleviate a variety of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions including neck and back pain. This alternative therapy can be a great source of relief for those dealing with herniated or bulging discs, as well as a variety of different joint disorders. If you are dealing with any of these issues then you could be a great candidate for spinal decompression therapy in Tampa.

How does the DRX9000 spinal decompression device work?

While most people think about chiropractic care and immediately conjure up images of manual manipulation (in which a chiropractor applies pressure with their hands to certain areas of the body to correct misalignments in the spine), this treatment uses a revolutionary machine that helps stretch the joints of the spine to take pressure off the discs and to reduce pain and stiffness while restoring mobility and promoting better blood flow and oxygen to these areas to repair damage.

During this treatment, you will lie on your back as the machine gently stretches areas of the spine. This treatment is completely painless, and some patients even report experiencing immediate relief. Of course, it is not uncommon for patients to require multiple sessions over the course of several months in order to feel long-term relief.

Here at Sheldon Road Chiropractic & Massage Therapy, we believe that pain shouldn’t be the norm. We offer a full range of therapeutic services to complement your treatment plan and to help your body heal faster. Call our Tampa, FL, chiropractic office today to schedule a consultation with us.

Don’t let an auto accident leave you dealing with long-term neck problems.

We know how everything stops the moment you get into a car accident. The adrenaline is surging and you may feel shaky and unstable; whiplashhowever, if you don’t notice any visible cuts, bruises or other injuries then you may not have thought about getting a medical evaluation (even though it’s always a good idea to have a doctor check you out immediately after an accident). Our Tampa, FL, chiropractors Dr. George Kollias, Dr. Autumn Scaz and Dr. Elizabeth Gionfriddo are here to tell you the warning signs that you might have whiplash and how chiropractic care could help you handle the pain of whiplash.

What is whiplash?

During a car accident, particularly if you’ve been rear-ended, you may have found that your head and neck were suddenly jerked backwards or forwards. When this sudden and violent movement occurs it can put stress and strain on the neck, leading to a painful condition known as whiplash.

What are the symptoms of whiplash?

Whiplash symptoms don’t always appear right away. Sometimes the symptoms sneak up on you after the course of hours or even days after your accident. The most common complaint of whiplash is neck pain. Depending on the severity of the accident, pain may be minimal or it can be extreme. Along with pain, you may also notice stiffness, limited mobility, weakness or even pain that radiates down to your shoulders. Some patients also report numbness or tingling in the neck and shoulders.

How can a chiropractor help me?

It’s important that you seek care for your whiplash to promote healing while also managing your symptoms more efficiently. Chiropractic care can be an effective, non-invasive way to treat your symptoms without turning to medication, which only masks the problem and temporarily alleviates pain and discomfort.

Our Tampa, FL, chiropractic specialists have received specialized training to be able to perform a variety of manipulation techniques to help adjust and realign areas of the spine. By applying the proper amount of force and pressure to these regions, we can realign the vertebrae in the neck while also boosting oxygen and blood flow to the areas to make sure they are getting the nutrients they need to speed up healing.

Chiropractic adjustments (also known as spinal manipulations) can also improve how the joints within the neck move and function, reducing stiffness and restoring full range of motion and flexibility. Multiple chiropractic adjustments may be necessary and most patients experience some relief after just one session.

If you have just gotten into a car accident, had a bad fall or experienced a sports injury, our team of chiropractic specialists here at Sheldon Road Chiropractic & Massage Therapy in Tampa, FL, is here to help. Schedule an appointment with us today.
