Palm Beach Gardens Chiropractic Care
Services and Benefits
Chiropractic care is an alternative healthcare approach designed to supplement, and in some cases, replace, traditional medical care. It uses non-invasive techniques and manipulation to encourage the body to heal itself from the inside out. Instead of treating symptoms of problems in the body with medications, chiropractic care addresses the underlying issues causing uncomfortable symptoms, such as pain, numbness and tingling in various areas of the body.
Chiropractors offer three types of treatments - relief, correction and wellness. Relief treatments are designed to alleviate you of uncomfortable symptoms caused by musculoskeletal subluxations and injuries. Corrective treatments take aim at the injury or condition causing your problem, such as a slipped disc, whiplash, poor alignment or muscle strain. Finally, a chiropractor will recommend a wellness schedule to maintain your body's musculoskeletal health and prevent future injuries.
Our chiropractic patients include people suffering from joint conditions, such as arthritis and fibromyalgia, as well as individuals in need of rehab following a work place accident or auto collision. We also see rehab patients following surgeries, as well as healthy individuals who want to maintain good posture and prevent future injuries or illnesses.
Our Chiropractor Provides Spinal Manipulation, Decompression and Rehab
At our Palm Beach Gardens wellness center, Dr. Scuderi utilizes a variety of techniques to relieve, correct and prevent bone, muscle and joint injuries and their symptoms. One of the most common methods he employs is spinal manipulation, which adjusts the spinal column into proper position. Spinal manipulation is typically a part of both corrective and wellness care, as poor posture, repetitive motions, poor sleep habits and other physical activities can easily cause subluxations in the back and neck. Manipulations are safe and non-invasive methods to relieve pain and ensure the nervous system is working properly.
Our chiropractor also offers non-surgical spinal decompression for patients suffering from disc injuries. Disc injuries result from a variety of situations, such as injury, degeneration, and disease. They can be caused by auto accidents or repetitive motions associated with work or other daily activities. When the body experiences a bulging or slipped disc, the build-up of pressure in the spine restricts nutrient flow, which in turn prevents the body from healing itself. Additionally, pressure in the spine can put pressure on nerves, causing pain or numbness. Spinal decompression rehab reverses the pressure in the spine over time, allowing the body to heal itself and minimizing pain. Though spinal decompression therapy often requires multiple sessions for correction, it has been proven to provide significant relief to patients suffering from disc injuries.
Our chiropractor remains informed of the latest and most advanced treatments in chiropractic care through continuing education. He offers an advanced Hill Air-Flex table, which provides low-force adjustments and decompression to the spinal column with minimal impact to the patient. The method is safe and effective for our patients with specific rehab needs.
Because our health center takes a whole approach to wellness, we also offer massage therapy, physical therapy and Pilates for total body conditioning and accelerated health improvement. The combination of our services with proper nutrition, a healthy diet and exercise help our patients to achieve optimal health.
