nonsurgical spinal decompression

New to our office in 2017 we are excited to offer our patients nonsurgical spinal decompression! This is an FDA-approved, nonsurgical, drug free procedure for not only alleviating back and neck pain from bulged or herniated discs, but it has been shown to attract fibroblasts to the damaged disc so the disc can heal. The procedure reduces pressure within the disc which may allow the bulging jelly to pull back in. One remarkable study by Dr Terry Yocum shows a before and after MRI with complete resolution of a severe extruded disc that had originally not responded to two months of other conservative treatments and was severe enough that it had been displacing the nerve root. The patient was about to get spinal surgery when he was introduced to spinal decompression. Dr Ellis is a certified decompression therapy practitioner.

In 2003 Dr. Ellis suffered from 3 serious bulged discs, one of which was even ruptured. "I wanted so much to have spinal decompression treatments but at that time it just wasn't available locally. That's why I am so excited to be ale to offer our patients this really effective but safe and gentle option for treating what can be a very stubborn condition. Helping people get their lives back and avoid surgery has always been one of the great joys of being a chiropractor; this new tool will help us be even more successful.

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
