Goldsboro Spine Center offers an array of additional health services for customers. Here are a few of the major ones:
Flexion-Distraction is an effective and economical technique of disc decompression which uses a specially designed chiropractic table which allows the patient to bend or flex at the waist and also permits specific head motion along with enabling isolated vertebral separation. This technique is best for patients with current or chronic disc problems. This technique also works as a prophylactic measure to assist in preventing disc problems in patients who are predisposed to such conditions.
Goldsboro Spine Center has on site X-Ray facilities. If further imaging is needed, for example MRI or CT scan, the doctors can order them for you.
Spinal discs receive nutrients from the fluid circulation upon spinal joint movements. Joint misalignment in the spine hinders this action from occurring and causes thinning and degeneration of the discs. Intersegmental traction/roller table works by creating passive motion that causes mild stretching of the spinal joints and improves mobility. Intersegmental traction table functions by mobilizing the spinal column while at the same time gently stretching the muscles and ligaments. When the postural muscles of the spine or the muscles which help in keeping an individual in a straight position are disturbed or affected badly due to injury, fatigue, poor posture or accident, it causes spasms in them.
Cervical decompression is a type of spinal traction that is done as a short-term treatment for neck pain. Cervical decompression is designed in a way to relieve cervical nerve root compression and muscle spasms. A steady or intermittent force is applied to the neck in order to stretch the cervical muscles and soft tissues along with widening the spaces between the upper vertebrae by using a manual, i.e. hands only or mechanical force. The chiropractor or physical therapist decides the amount of force and the length of time a person stays in a cervical decompression. The amount of pressure for cervical traction is increased gradually.
In the same way, in lumbar decompression, intermittent or continuous force is applied to the lumbar spine either manually or mechanically. The aim of lumbar decompression is to decrease the back pain related with back muscle spasms and lumbar nerve root impingement. Lumbar decompression is also done for treating lumbar herniated disc or protruding discs, degenerative disc disease and osteoarthritis. Just like cervical decompression, lumbar decompression also increases the space between the vertebrae, and relieves back pain and promotes healing.
Class 4 60 Watt Laser
High Power Laser Therapy (HPLT) offers patients a painless, non-surgical and side effect free treatment for conditions previously refractive to traditional medical care. Conditions such as peripheral neuropathy, head, neck and back pain (stenosis, disc herniations and sciatica), arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, foot and heel pain, ligament and tendon injuries, muscle bruising, and even non-healing wounds, to name a few, all respond well to HPLT.
The mechanism of action for laser therapy comes from its ability at the cellular level to “bio-stimulate” tissue growth and repair. This results in accelerated wound healing as well as a dramatic decrease in pain, inflammation, and scar tissue formation. Unlike all other treatment modalities, laser therapy actually “heals” tissue as well as providing a powerful non-addictive form of pain management.
3D BodyView Posture Scan
3D BodyView™ Posture Scan is the latest in 3-dimensional imaging so patients can see how their feet can affect their entire body. A properly aligned body will have symmetrical feet, level knees, pelvis and shoulders. 3D BodyView provides clinical insight by showing: areas of deformity, levels of asymmetry, and abnormalities between the left and right foot. Following a foot scan, you will get a report showing pronation/stability Index, a foot assessment, and a body assessment.
This device is the most accurate 3D technology in its class – this same technology is used for industrial inspection of jet engines and other critical precision equipment.
