Chiropractic care is one of the fastest growing professions within healthcare today. In fact, more people flock to so-called “alternative” healthcare providers, including chiropractors, massage therapists and acupuncturists, than their medical doctors. Among these alternative healthcare providers, chiropractors are the most popular. Today, there is more chiropractic research than the average chiropractor knows about. In fact, there is so much being discovered that today’s current understanding of chiropractic therapy has not fully disseminated into college teachings. For this reason, doctors are encouraged to participate in continuing education seminars.
Quantum Neurology® Rehabilitation, or light therapy, is used to strengthen weak spinal nerves and speed healing and recovery. Dr. Scott Mindel, a Quantum Neurologist, administers light therapy by gently tapping a cold laser along the patient’s spine to stimulate weakened nerves and set the foundation for correcting the patient’s spine and posture deviations.
Clinical studies have shown that decompression of the intervertebral discs actually decreases intradiscal pressure. And by decreasing pressure inside the discs, Spinal Decompression Therapy allows healing fluids, nutrients and oxygen to flow back into the discs. This reduction in pressure enables bulging or herniated discs to retract, and it often relieves pressure on the nerve roots. Re-introducing nutrients into the disc can reverse degeneration and allow healing to take place.Decompression is highly effective in the management of degenerated and bulging discs, particularly when other treatments have failed.
