At Houma-Thibodaux Spine & Rehab. of Houma, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Houma & Thibodaux offices.
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertiese that now exists. These newer correction methods are more effective than ever before.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skelatal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use.
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy is a spinal disc rehabilitation program that uses FDA cleared medical teahnology that gently stretches the spine and decompresses the discs. This technique of spinal decompression therapy, that is, positioning, has shown the ability to gently separate the vertebrae from each other, creating a vacuum inside the discs that we are targeting. This "vacuum effect" is also known as negative intradiscal pressure.
A bulging or "herniated" disc is sometimes incorrectly referred to as a "slipped" disc. Studies demonstrate that Spinal Decompression Therapy suceeds at treating bulging or herniated discs over 70% of the time. This of course varies depending on the complexity of the injury and other factors. Many times patients are able to avoid more costly and invasive procedures.
