Chiropractic is a natural form of health care that uses non-invasive methods to restore proper function to the nervous system, helping your body to heal naturally. Chiropractors don’t prescribe drugs or perform surgery.
Back and Neck Pain
Back and neck pain, including chronic pain, can be treated effectively through disc decompression.
By gently stretching the spine, disc decompression reduces symptoms of degenerative disc disease by reducing pressure in the spine.
Disc decompression therapy creates negative pressure on the discs of the spine, effectively pulling them back into place.
Disc decompression is a non-invasive treatment proven effective at treating spinal stenosis and relieving symptoms.
Worn Spinal Joints
Also known as posterior facet syndrome, worn spinal joints have shown a reduction in symptoms with disc decompression.
Through disc decompression, chiropractors can relieve pain and reduce the severity of chronic headaches.
Disc decompression can reduce compression of the Sciatic nerve and reduce symptoms of pain and spasms.
Disc decompression therapy is used by chiropractors to relieve compression of the nerves, reducing pain and inflammation.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a natural form of health care that uses non-invasive methods to restore proper function to the nervous system, helping your body to heal naturally. Chiropractors don’t prescribe drugs or perform surgery. Instead, they primarily utilize spinal adjustments and various conservative manual therapies to restore proper function to the spine, thereby assisting the body to regain function.

How Does It Work?
When you visit a Doctor of Chiropractic, you will first receive a detailed evaluation including consultation, case history, physical examination, and X-rays (if necessary). This allows the doctor to make an accurate diagnosis and to formulate a treatment plan.
Conservative and gentle techniques are then used to correct the misalignment and dysfunction in the spine. Many chiropractors also utilize other manual treatments such as traction, spinal decompression, corrective exercise, physiotherapy, massage, and acupuncture to improve the patient’s condition. Chiropractic care can relieve stress as well as a variety of conditions.
What Does Chiropractic Impact?
When the spine is not positioned normally, it can irritate the nerves exiting the spine. And when spinal nerves are irritated, they don’t function normally and can affect the function of the tissues they interact with. Spinal nerves transmit transmit electrical signals from the brain to the muscles and organs. Irritation of a spinal nerve can cause pain in a nerve or muscle, but can also cause dysfunction in the “end-organ” that it innervates. The goal of chiropractic care is to take pressure off of the nerves, thereby reducing pain, improving muscle function, and improving the function of the “end-organ.” Thus chiropractic focuses on the integrity of the spine and its surrounding tissues as a means to enhance normal human function and health.
What is the Purpose of Chiropractic?
The most common conditions for which people seek chiropractic care are for low back pain, neck pain, and headaches. While chiropractic care is extremely effective in alleviating those conditions, it also has the potential to do much more. Improper function of the spine due to slight misalignments can cause poor health or function, even in areas far removed from the spine and spinal cord itself. Spinal adjustments can correct those misalignments, thereby allowing the nervous system to function without interference.
What to Expect From Your Visit
Prior to your consultation with the doctor, you will be asked to complete some brief paperwork that will give the doctor a synopsis of your health history. This assists the doctor in more accurately making his diagnosis.
At Delaware Integrative Healthcare, we offer a free consultation whereby the doctor will personally review your case to determine if you are a good candidate for care in our office. If he determines, based on the patient history and clinical experience, that you are a good candidate for care, he will then perform a thorough exam of the spine and extremities. If we determines that you are not a good candidate for care, we will then refer you to an appropriate specialist.
