Spinal Decompression Traction (SDT) is used by our chiropractor as a state-of-the-art alternative to invasive and risky back surgery. It has been shown to be effective in treating herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica and other low back disorders. It should be noted that not all patients are good candidates for Spinal Decompression Traction. Dr. John Ross will evaluate each patient independently for chiropractic manipulations, adjustments and SDT.
Who can benefit from Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Anyone in the Chattanooga, Ooltewah or Hixson area who has back pain or neck pain caused in whole or in part by a damaged disc may be helped by spinal decompression therapy. These conditions include herniated, protruding or bulging discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica or radiculopathy (pinched nerves).
What is Dry Needling? (It is not Acupuncture!)
It is a way for our chiropractor to treat chronic and acute pain and/or problems that may not be responding to other types of treatments. This treatment "resets" the abnormal trigger points involved with muscular pain, back pain and the associated problems (herniated disc). We have had great success with chronic shoulder pain, carpal tunnel symptoms, plantar fasciitis, and many other nagging problems. The sessions are quick and virtually pain free by using strategically placed acupuncture needles. Dr. Ross uses dry needling to improve the effectiveness of the chiropractic manipulation/adjustments.
