Spinal Decompression Therapy

back or neck pain
Spinal decompression therapy can provide relief from chronic neck or back pain

If you or someone you know suffers from chronic back or neck pain, spinal  decompression therapy may provide the long lasting relief you are looking for.

Spinal decompression treatments at Surrey Pain & Wellness chiropractic clinic are combined with a customized treatment plan to help ensure that your greatest potential for recovery is achieved.

Spinal decompression is done on a specialized table attached to a module that measures the exact parameters to adjust the spine and supports the body in a comfortable position for a prolonged period (about 15-20 minutes) to begin the necessary alignment required to reduce and eliminate painful conditions naturally without medication or surgery.

While some patients may experience immediate relief,  it is important to complete the entire treatment plan as prescribed by the chiropractor to ensure lasting re-alignment and recovery from pain.

If you suffer from chronic back or neck problems, spinal decompression therapy may be the treatment that provides lasting relief and finally  puts you on the road to recovery.    Visit our chiropractic clinic at Newton Crossing for a consult to find out more or read more about spinal decompression therapy at Surrey Pain & Wellness Clinic.

PRICE for Healthy Muscles?

Surrey Pain & Wellness Chiropractic Clinic can help patients heal from a range of musculo-skeletal injuries

You can’t afford to NOT take care of a muscle injury with this easy treatment!

Muscle cramps and spasms are sustained contractions in the muscle.  They can be just uncomfortable or extremely painful! And they can make you prone to more serious injury!

Gentle stretching of the affected and surrounding muscle groups can bring relief.  Staying well hydrated and in good physical condition can help prevent them.

PRICE can help ensure that muscle cramps, spasms and more serious injuries are reduced or heal quickly without complications.

•    Protection. Protect small injuries using bandages, elastic wraps, or simple splints.
•    Rest. Injured tissue requires time to heal. You may have to give up running, while your calf or ankle are inflamed, but you
can still swim or do upper body work.
•    Ice. Ice is the best anti-inflammatory to reduce both swelling and pain – and is drug-free!  Apply an ice pack for 15 – 20
minutes after an injury. Repeat application every hour for the first four hours, and then four times a day for the next two or
three days.
•    Compression. Pressure can also help reduce swelling and inflammation. In most cases, an elastic bandage will do the trick.
•    Elevation. Elevate the injured area to drain fluids away from injured tissue to help reduce swelling, inflammation, and pain.

Active Transportation in Surrey – Surrey Pain & Wellness Chiropractic Clinic

Take the Time to be Healthier

Active transportation is any sort of transportation powered by YOU – walking, cycling, using a wheelchair, in-line skating or skateboarding. There are many ways to use active transportation in your daily life, whether it is walking to the bus stop, or cycling even part way to school or work.

Before you leave home to run that errand or get yourself or your kids to work or school, maybe ask yourself if driving there is necessary… could you walk or bike instead? If the weather’s nice and you’re going nearby, chances are you could easily choose a form of active transportation, save gas, money, get healthier and increase quality time with your kids.  Maybe it means leaving a little earlier, but often it doesn’t take much to change up the usual routine.

In our community, the City of Surrey Greenways plan encourages “active transportation” as part of its sustainable transportation plan for the community and as a key component of an active, healthy lifestyle.  Check out the Greenway routes here.

 

Chiropractic – A Strong Core Means a Strong Body

Core strength is a key aspect of overall health and helps prevent injury, pain, and dysfunction in the biomechanics of our body.

Athletes know that strengthening their core is essential to performing well.  According to chiropractic, we should all pay more attention to achieving a stronger core.

The core of your body is like the earth’s core – it’s the centre of gravity that holds everything balanced and in alignment.  The core is made of the abdominal muscles, the back and hip muscles and the buttocks. These muscles provide “core” support and balance between your upper and lower body – from head to toe!

If the core muscles are weak and out of balance, it’s a recipe for conditions such as back pain, hip pain, headaches, neck pain and more.  Also, did you know that the core protects your body’s vital organs from injury?

Strengthening the core muscles will make any physical activity easier and safer to perform – whether you are an elite athlete, a parent carrying children around, doing a round of golf or an afternoon of gardening.

You can increase your core strength with a few exercises at home in as little as five minutes a day.   It’s true!   Exercises can range from something as simple as breathing and stretching exercises to more advanced routines.

When you visit Surrey Pain & Wellness Clinic – your chiropractic treatment includes recommendations on core strength exercises for your body.
