Chiropractic • Chiropractic adjustments done at Lighthouse Family Wellness Center are done by hand, with an activator, and with an arthrostim. Activator and arthrostim adjustments are small tools that are very gentle and made to help remove the subluxations in the spine. Studies have shown that people under chiropractic care have a 200 percent stronger immune system than the average person.
Spinal Repair • Low back pain is one of the leading causes of missed days of work in America. One of the main causes of low back (and neck) pain is either bulging discs (the padding between each vertebrae), or a condition called degenerative disc disease. • Spinal decompression is a therapy which actually reverses degeneration in the disc by flooding the disc with nutrients by a process called imbibition. • Spinal decompression therapy is an effective treatment for: • Herniated or Bulging Discs • Sciatica • Degenerative Disc Disease • Post-surgical Patients • Facet Syndrome • Spinal Stenosis
