allow us to introduce the farabaugh chiropractic office

Allow us to introduce the Farabaugh Chiropractic Office

A review of our personnel, facility, procedures and policies.

intradiscal disc decompression ie cervical and lumbar decompression
Intradiscal Disc, “cervical and lumbar decompression”

By painlessly stretching the spine, IDD treatments create a vacuum within the discs, drawing fluid back in so they rehydrate, and essentially, return to their natural, healthier state. 

Over time, healing occurs and along with it, increased flexibility and diminished pain.  And, the success rate is unusually high --- more that 75 percent of patients are successfully treated and find significant relief.


Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging“DITI”A low cost, low tech, revealing, painless, non-invasive, screening test.We use Infrared Thermal Imaging as a screening test only. We do not diagnose from these images. In fact, when we discover an abnormal scan, these patients are referred to their primary care physician for further evaluation.

what do we treat
What Do We Treat ?
  • Our doctors specialize in the evaluation and treatment of neuromusculoskeletal disorders
  • We excel in the treatment of low back pain, neck pain, and headaches, including disc injury, and soft tissue injury secondary to Low Speed Rear Impact Collisions (LOSRIC)
  • Virtually 100% of what we treat is of a musculoskeletal origin and responds very well to conservative chiropractic care
commonly treated conditions
Commonly Treated Conditions
  • Neck pain, arm pain, and headache
  • Low back and/or leg pain including HNP/radiculopathy

(usually treated conservatively with flexion-distraction)

  • Extremity sprain/strain
  • Carpal/Tarsal Tunnel Syndromes
  • Facet syndrome, myofascial pain disorders, fibromyalgia

(MD/DC approach preferred)

  • Scoliosis evaluation
spinal manipulation therapy
Spinal Manipulation/Therapy
  • The mode of treatment most often used in a Chiropractic setting is

spinal manipulation.

  • A wealth of research exists on the effectiveness and safety of

appropriately administered spinal manipulation (copies of specific

literature can be provided upon request).

  • Therapy modalities are also administered when pain, spasm and

inflammation are present.

  • Exercises are given to virtually every patient.
  • Activities of Daily Living are also discussed with each patient,

in addition to nutritional issues when appropriate or requested.

therapy modalities
Therapy Modalities

Our office utilizes several forms of basic

therapeutic modalities. Patients requiring

more extensive therapy are referred to local

PT centers.

  • High volt: electric muscle stimulation
  • Interferrential Current
  • Intersegmental Traction
  • Hot and Cold packs
  • TENS: In advanced or permanent cases
safety issues
Safety Issues
  • Patient safety is always a concern.
  • Our doctors carefully screen each patient to determine if they are a candidate for chiropractic care/manipulation/rehab.
  • If a potential risk is identified the patient is sent back to the referring physician for further diagnostic tests or alternative treatment options.
  • One of the greatest concerns regarding a referral

to a chiropractor is that of liability. However,

please consider that our doctors follow very strict


  • Liability associated with spinal manipulation is

very low. The average D.C. pays a mere $1,400

per year in malpractice premiums……so you be

the judge whether or not liability truly exists

concerning referral to a DC.

treatment guidelines
Treatment Guidelines

Our office adheres to stringent nationally accepted guidelines.

In general, if a patient does not respond with 2-4 weeks of care,

treatment is terminated and other factors are considered.

Typical Treatment Strategy

  • 2 weeks initially, followed by re-evaluation.
  • If improvement noted, treatment continues.
  • If no improvement, change treatment for two weeks, and

re-evaluate again.

  • Referral back to PCP/Specialist if improvement unsatisfactory

at any point.

manipulation contraindications
Manipulation Contraindications
  • Advancing neurological deficits
  • Joint infection
  • Fracture
  • Joint instability
  • Ankylosing Spondylitis
  • Tumor
  • Abnormal provocative maneuver (History of CVA)
  • High risk pregnancy
exploring the myths drugs
Exploring The Myths: “Drugs”
  • One of the most common myths surrounding Chiropractic is the belief that Chiropractors do not advocate the use of medication or surgery.
  • Nothing could be further from the truth. Our office works closely with and receives a large number of referrals from area medical physicians.
  • We also maintain an extensive list of physicians to whom we refer. We believe by providing treatment options, including drugs when necessary, we can better serve our patients.
how much is enough
How much is enough?

Myth: “Once a patient begins care, they have

to keep going the rest of their life.”

  • If that were true, we would never have room

for new patients.

  • Reality: The majority of patients consult our office,

get treated, get well, and are released from care…period.

what about wellness care
What about Wellness Care?
  • Once the patient’s condition has resolved or reaches the point of maximum therapeutic recovery, they are released PRN and/or instructed to return to their PCP.
  • If a patient chooses wellness care, they are instructed on the importance of mental, physical, and spiritual well-being (obviously mental and spiritual concerns are referred elsewhere), and the need to utilize a multi-disciplinary team approach. No type of physician does it all! Chiropractic is but one spoke in the wheel of health.
  • Chronic pain: According to the literature, singular treatment interventions are doomed for failure. MDs should be referring to DCs, and DCs should be referring to MDs. It’s the right thing to do for the good of our patients!!
education training skill

Myth: “Chiropractors have a limited education.”

  • Fact: Chiropractors are well educated and trained, completing 4 years of undergraduate studies, 4 years of study at an accredited chiropractic college with heavy emphasis on neuromusculoskeletal dx and tx, followed by passage of stringent national and state board examinations, then followed by the typical yearly CE requirements, a minimum of 24 hours.
  • Additionally, post-graduate specialties can be obtained.
  • Dr. Farabaugh possesses sub-specialty certifications in both Sports Medicine and Low Speed Rear Impact Collision and Accident Reconstruction.
why refer patients to a chiropractor
Why Refer Patients To A Chiropractor?
  • If your patient is not responding to traditional medical

care, a referral to a chiropractor is often an appropriate

and effective alternative. Patients appreciate your

willingness to consider other options.

  • The types of cases which often frustrate medical physicians

are the very types of cases most commonly treated by DCs.

LBP, leg pain, neck pain, and headaches are the most

common conditions treated in a chiropractic office.

  • Chiropractic manipulative techniques and rehab are

also very effective for extremity injury.

  • Our office houses a very large data base of research.
  • A wealth of research exists demonstrating the effectiveness and safety of manipulation for both acute and chronic neck and low back pain.
  • Studies and articles concerning soft tissue healing, chronic pain, etiology of pain, and Low Speed Rear Impact Collision (LOSRIC) can be obtained upon request.

If you wish to be added to our monthly research update program, just let us know!
