At Vitality Chiropractic and Wellness Center, 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 St. Petersburg office.
Chiropractic Spinal Correction
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them 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 skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
DTS is the leading non-surgical treatment for pain related to spinal disc disorders of the lumbar and cervical spine. Spinal Decompression Therapy involves stretching the spine, using a traction table or similar motorized device, with the goal of relieving lower back pain, leg pain, or neck pain.
Cold Laser Therapy
Low level laser therapy is a painless, sterile, non-invasive, drug-free treatment which is used to treat a variety of pain syndromes, injuries., wounds, fractures, neurological conditions and pathologies. Laser therapy can be used any time a patient requests or needs a drugless procedure for the control of pain, when conventional therapies have been ineffective, or when the acceleration of healing from injuries is desired. The laser is set at 635 nm, at the optimal wavelength for healing.
The theory for the creation of laser light was proposed by Albert Einstein in 1917, but was not developed until 1960. It was in the late 1960's that Professor Endre Mester of Budapest, Hungary, first reported his experience using laser light to treat non-healing wounds and ulcers in diabetic patients. Mester's 70% success rate in treating these wounds lead to the development of the science of what he called "laser biostimulation".
Around the world, laser therapy is rapidly becoming a medical therapy that can heal wounds and fractures up to 60% faster and also reduce the cost of treatment for many conditions. In the U.K., low level laser therapy has become the treatment of choice for soft tissue "whiplash" injuries and for the treatment of painful post-herpetic neuralgia (shingles pain).
