We provide spinal correction utilizing gentle chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Albert Teague has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
In addition to chiropractic care, we also offer the following services to help you heal faster:
Spinal Decompression Therapy
What is spinal decompression therapy?
Spinal decompression therapy is FDA approved and has a high success rate for pain associated with herniated or bulging disc even after back surgery. It is nonsurgical, traction based therapy for the relief of back and leg pain, or neck and arm pain.
How does spinal decompression help? During spinal decompression therapy, a negative pressure is created within the disc — because of that negative pressure, disc material that has protruded or herniated can be pulled back within the normal confines of the disc, and permit healing to occur.
Who can spinal decompression help? Spinal decompression therapy can help anyone who has back pain or neck pain as a whole, or anyone in pain due to a damaged disc. These conditions include herniated, protruding or bulging disc, spinal stenosis, sciatica or radiculopathy (pinched nerves).
Therapeutic ultrasound utilizes high frequency inaudible sound waves to treat a variety of soft tissue injuries. Ultrasound is applied using a rounded wand or probe that is placed in direct contact with your skin. At first, you will feel the cooling of the gel. The gel is used to improve sound conduction. Then, you’re likely to feel a pleasant, warm sensation beneath the skin in the region being treated. When these high frequency sound waves are directed to soft tissue and joints, the rise in temperature increases blood flow to the region, relaxes muscle spasms, increases metabolism and promotes the bodies healing response. Think of an ultrasound as a form of deep tissue micro massage, helping reduce joint stiffness and stimulate cell repair.
Ultrasound treatment can take from 3-5 minutes, in cases where scar tissue is present treatment time could be longer. During the treatment, the probe is kept in constant motion.
Electric muscle stimulation
The reason we use electric stimulation is because it assists in the healing of muscles, tendons, and ligaments. It also helps with pain, inflammation, muscle spasms, atrophy, decreased circulation and promotes osteogenic stimulation. Electrical muscle stimulation lasts from 8-15 minutes in addition to any chiropractic adjustment.
Cold Laser Therapy
We use light frequencies that actually reduce inflammation and enhance the healing process. The frequency of the light is where the healing comes from, not the strength of the laser, which is why it is called cold laser. Our laser works on a narrow frequency of red light, not the full spectrum that the sun produces. The cells of our body have receptors that are sensitive to light. How can light frequencies speed up or slow down biological processes? Many theories have been suggested, but from practical application with real patients, we know it works for wound healing, cell regeneration, and scar tissue reduction.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises 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. 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.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ) Treatment
Temporomandibular Joint Disorder or TMJ, can cause jaw pain and tension which can make it difficult to eat, smile, talk, and enjoy your life. If you seek relief from chronic TMJ pain without taking pain medication daily, give chiropractic care a try. Our chiropractor can provide advice that will help you to manage lifestyle triggers while treating your jaw pain at the root.
If you have ever had a case of the "spins," you know what vertigo feels like. The sensation of motion all around you while you remain still can be unsettling, sickening and even dangerous. If you need an Englewood vertigo treatment that can get rid of such symptoms without resorting to surgery or other drastic methods, you should consider chiropractic care offered at our Teague Chiropractic clinic.
Chronic pain can come from a variety of issues, including illnesses and diseases, genetic conditions, and trauma, such as a car accident injury. Managing pain can prove challenging for individuals, and many doctors resort to aggressive surgeries and dangerous medications to treat symptoms. However, if you're experiencing back pain, neck pain, sciatica, or other types of chronic pain, a Englewood chiropractor can help you achieve pain relief naturally with gentle techniques.
