Your Chiropractic Consultation with Dr. Nutter
When you visit our office for the first time, you will go through an evaluation with Dr. Nutter to discuss what is going on to cause your symptoms. A series of tests will be done to measure range of motion and strength, and you will be asked about your pain levels. You will have the opportunity to discuss your treatment goals, and ask questions about the treatment you might receive. Dr. Nutter will create a treatment plan specific to your needs, and you can begin treatment once the evaluation is over.
Spinal Decompression in Pittsburgh, PA
Spinal decompression involves stretching and chiropractic adjustments to open up the area between two vertebrae where a disc is injured. You might have pain radiating down an arm or leg because of a pinched nerve, or have difficulty with movement because of a compression. You may have been told that you need surgery to correct the problem, but chiropractic care can ease your symptoms to prevent surgery. Spinal decompression eases tension on pinched nerves, as it opens up the area between vertebrae to give your discs space to heal.
Spinal Decompression and Core Strengthening
It is important to gain strength in your core in order to help your spine stay in position when it has been adjusted. Your core strength helps you stay mobile, and makes it easier for you to manage your symptoms. When you go through treatment with a chiropractor, part of your care will involve building your core strength in order to optimize your overall health. When you have pain, core strength can build up slowly as you work on your home exercise program.
