Have you been to a chiropractor and felt sore afterwards? Are you avoiding seeing a chiropractor because the treatment scares you?
A new, revolutionary form of chiropractic care is spreading through the Overland Park and surrounding areas. Gentle chiropractic get as good, if not better, results than traditional aggressive chiropractic techniques. At Nigus Chiropractic, located in Overland Park, we specialized in gentle techniques that get results without the discomfort. Why do we prefer gentle techniques? The answer is simple: results and patient comfort.
Rehabilitating the spine is like correcting your smile with braces, because the changes happen gradually and cannot be forced. Vertebra will rehabilitate about 1mm each visit, so aggressively moving the spine 3-5 inches will only cause discomfort and tissue inflammation. We frequently see people complain that their chiropractor made their condition worse by being too aggressive. When you are trying to find an Overland Park chiropractor, we recommend that you ask friends and family who they see and what kind of techniques they used. Remember, as the patient your care and needs should be the number one priority. Our Overland Park chiropractor office uses a gentle technique called “specific prone” to get you better faster.
The technique utilizes a type of thrust called “P-A”, meaning posterior to anterior. The patient lays face down, and specific thrust and impulses are used on the spine to take pressure off the compressed nerves. Sometimes the technique is so gentle that the patient will feel only comfortable, subtle changes that have tremendous results. This technique does not use rotation, making it comfortable for the patient and is why our Overland Park chiropractor gets such great results with this type of treatment. If you have less inflammation from the treatment, then the treatment is more effective. Tension headaches respond very well to this gentle treatment, since reducing inflammation relaxes the muscles and improves these headaches. After a motor vehicle accident, the spine is already damaged and needs repair. This article talks more about how gentle techniques can help your recover faster
This technique is particularly effective if you have a disc problem such as arthritis or degenerative disc disease. With these conditions, you want to limit the aggressive rotational forces some chiropractors use because it can injure the discs. Dr. Nigus, our Overland Park chiropractor, treats disc conditions on a daily basis with success. The treatment has been effective enough to prevent the need for spinal surgery in many of his patients thanks to the gentle chiropractic techniques.
Every treatment is individualized at our Overland Park chiropractor office. We have different stresses on our bodies, different past injuries such as car accidents, different goals and desires, and each treatment is unique to the person.
