At Durant Chiropractic, it is our responsibility & privilege to provide the absolute best chiropractic care to each and every patient who steps through our door.
Whether you are experiencing back pain, feeling out of alignment, or are just looking to improve your health, we can help. Durant Chiropractic utilizes our knowledge & expertise to customize a safe & effective plan to get you back to feeling your best.
To assist all of our patients, we offer the following services:
We offer several techniques of adjusting that can be tailored to the your comfort while providing an effective spinal correction. The Doctors use a very safe, specific, controlled force applied to the misaligned joints. This restores proper function and mobility to the spine. Chiropractic adjustments reduce back pain, neck pain, improve headaches, and maintain the health & integrity of the spine. Our adjusting techniques include Activator, Thompson Drop Table, Lumbar Decompression (Cox Technique), Gonstead Technique, and Diversified Technique.
This method of treatment encourages the body to promote natural self-healing & improve function. Healing & improved function is achieved by inserting very thin needles at precise acupuncture points. Think of it this way, you have channels of energy that run in regular patterns all throughout your body. These channels, called meridians, are like flowing rivers. Any obstruction to this flow of energy is like a dam that restricts flow in one part of your body and causes back-ups into another part. The thin acupuncture needles unblock the obstruction at the dams & reestablish the natural flow through the meridians.
Patients suffering from issues such as muscle spasms, chronic back pain, headaches, neck pain, digestive problems, knee pain, insomnia, and mood can find relief with acupuncture treatments.
Massage therapy, while great for relaxation, can actually help your body achieve balance & health. For many patients, massage therapy offers a natural, drug-free approach to relieving pain. The benefits of this therapy are numerous and include increasing blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling, and relaxation of muscles thus relieving muscle pain & spasms. As an added bonus, studies show massage therapy, as with chiropractic adjustments, can even give your immune system a boost.
We use spinal traction to decompress the disc joints and nerves to promote spinal correction and healing. Our system of traction includes utilizing slightly increasing amounts of weight over the course of a treatment plan set by the doctor to achieve maximum results.
We use this table to decompress discs in the spine, particularly the lower back, thus reducing disc bulging and herniation and increasing disc height. The table uses a gentle flexion-distraction motion while the patient lays face down. When combined with chiropractic care, this table can reduce disc issues and improve pain associated with those issues.
If the Doctor determines x-rays are medically necessary, we have the capability to take and develop x-rays in-house. While not essential in all cases, being able to take x-rays allows us to check for spinal instabilities, potential fractures/breaks, joint disease, and allows us to check progress of spinal corrective procedures, such as traction.
High frequency sound waves travel through the ultrasound wand, generating heat within the body part that is being treated. This causes an increase in blood flow which leads to a reduction in swelling & chronic inflammation, thus promoting pain relief and healing. You might feel a slight warm sensation on the skin, but otherwise, no pain or discomfort is associated with this treatment.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS or E-Stim)
We place electrode pads on your skin around the affected area while the EMS machine generates electric impulses. The electrical impulses elicit muscle contraction. The goal of this treatment is pain relief, muscle stimulation, increased blood flow and a reduction in swelling. During this procedure, you’ll feel a tingling or buzzing sensation and can feel small muscle contractions. We can easily adjust the intensity to fit your comfort level and most patients feel results within just a few treatments.
When combined with regular chiropractic care, exercises can help correct & strengthen muscles and connective tissue. You can perform many of the corrective exercises in the comfort of your home. By consistently performing these exercises, you can help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care.
Durant Chiropractic, P.C. is all about patient care and encouraging our patients to lead a healthy, active lifestyle. We can advise what activities you should be avoiding during each phase of care or what activities would be most beneficial for your care. We see each patient as a whole person, not just a set of symptoms, and we work with you to help you achieve a fulfilling & enjoyable lifestyle.
These are just some of the services that we provide here at Durant Chiropractic, P.C.. We love providing our patients with an enjoyable and pain-free life!
