Lumbar Floating Decompression
This therapy is currently unique to our office and the only one in Oklahoma. It is simple to view and understand. The large padded arms support the patient around the ribs and the chair seat is lowered out from under the patient, thereby allowing gravity to decompress and stretch the spine.
The lumbar floating decompression is a terrific compliment to the DRX-9000 lumbar decompression and in some instances is sufficient by itself to decompress the lumbar discs.
Also exciting for patients with hardware in their spine from surgery; this approach works for them. So if the spine has been surgically fused using screws and plates and the patient is experiencing pain locally, or it is referring into one or both legs, this approach is safe and effective for decompression of the lumbar spine.
Plan of care includes:
- Floating decompression of the discs
- Neuromuscular re-education of the lumbar muscles
- Proprioceptive training for the postural component
- Core strengthening of the muscles
- Neurocare Electrical stimulation for muscle re-education and strengthening
All of medicine knows and advocates involving the patient actively in their care and recovery as quickly as possible and that is the purpose of Structural Rehab.
When a patient is admitted for care at Standridge Clinic, the most important concern of theirs, as well as the clinic staff is helping them get out of pain, this is where our focus is with all of our patients.
Once the pain has been reduced, the doctor and patient consult regarding the appropriateness of a strengthening program for the involved spinal part, which is weak, has been in pain and has suffered from a pinched nerve.
Structural Rehab’s goal is to strengthen the muscles around the injured part so that the patient is stronger when discharged from care. This then allows the patient to then go to the gym, begin an exercising on their own taking charge of their health.
This is what separates our office from others, we treat the pinched nerve and misaligned vertebra (subluxation) and then strengthen the muscles around the area that has received the corrective care.
Blood Analysis Testing
Identifying your metabolic data, which are what foods you eat and supplements you take, is empowering and smart. With this information you can modify your diet and vitamin regiment to gain optimal health.
Your blood’s biomarkers are indicators revealing your health status. Biomarkers are measurable and reveal both the positive and negative changes occurring in your body. Each blood test collection of biomarkers, called a panel, reveal to you what is happening inside your body and what changes you must make to improve your health.
When you are adjusted, you feel better because the “pinched nerve” is released and stimulates both positive hormonal change, as well as increased neurotransmitter activity. Chiropractic adjusting of the subluxated vertebrae (misalignment) and proper blood chemistry balance can dramatically improve your health.
Your blood regenerates every 120 days. A blood panel sample draw is recommended every 4 months. With use of that information, you’ll be well on your way to a much healthier body and life. Chronic inflammation is the number one reason people live on anti-inflammatory and pain medication. Cleaning up and balancing your blood panel helps you avoid that. Remember you don’t hurt and ache because God forgot to put Tylenol in you. Rather, you must clean up your internal environment!
