In Chiropractic traction-massage, the patient lies face up with a pillow under the knees.
A system of rollers then moves up and down the spine, gently stretching and massaging the muscles of the back.
Traction-massage is performed along with an adjustment to relax the spine, making the adjustment easier to perform, more comfortable, and more beneficial.
Dr. Shawn commonly prescribes specific strengthening exercises for our patients with back, neck and extremity problems.
These exercises can decrease pain, prevent muscle deterioration, promote joint health, increase strength, stability and range of motion and protect against new or recurring injuries.
Dr. Shawn will show you how to do the exercises and supervise you until you are comfortable doing them on your own.
It’s important to keep up with your exercises as prescribed (similarly to drug prescriptions).
Studies show that individuals who follow their exercise instructions heal faster than those who do not.
I came to Dr. Shawn due to terrible headaches that I had been suffering from every day for months. After seeing a neurologist and spending hundreds of dollars on MRI'S and other testing, I still had intense headaches daily with no resolution. Within 30 minutes after my first session with Dr. Shawn my headache was finally gone! My quality of life has improved immensely since my treatment began!
Dr. Shawn is the best in the business when it comes to pulling all the stops to ensure you get the treatment you need. I have gone to a few Chiropractic doctors and Dr. Shawn is hands down the best!! Not only does he care about trying to correct what's wrong with you, but he cares about his patients. I love that he so knowledgeable and is glad to share that knowledge with you. He also makes himself available whenever (on apt only days) their is a need. I call him doctor, but I also call him friend, because he is.
