Services Offered at Lake Spine Specialists
When many think of chiropractic services, they think of conditions treated are neck or low back pain, but at Lake Spine Specialists in Mentor, Ohio, our treatments extend much further than that. In order to provide a full range of services, we have two different chiropractors to choose from so you can work with the chiropractor you feel most comfortable with for whatever reason you have for coming to see us.
With Dr. Thomas G. Lemire, you will find a caring professional who is highly skilled in chiropractic techniques. Not only do will he help with neck and back pain, but they can also treat other types of conditions as well, including headaches, shoulder pain, leg pain, and foot pain. When spinal alignment is off, it can cause pressure on nerves, muscles, and ligaments, which can translate to pain and discomfort. Often, chiropractic treatments alone can help make these pains subside.
Spinal Decompression Therapy
When the spine is compressed the spinal discs take on too much pressure and require spinal decompression. Spinal decompression is a motorized traction machine that stretches the spine to relieve this pressure and encourage the circulation of fluids in the spine. It is commonly used for the following conditions:
- Herniated discs
- Worn spinal joints
- Injured spinal nerve roots
- Sciatic nerve pain
Wellness and Nutrition Advice
Chiropractic and related services work best when the patient is fully on board with the treatment and is willing to make changes in their life that will encourage their own healing process. This is often done by improving his or her nutrition and by exercising. Sometimes general exercises, such as walking, may be recommended. Other times recommendations will be more specific to that person's injury.
Acupuncture is becoming a more viable choice for more and more people, especially for those who are having trouble with the balance within the body. Very thin sterile needles are inserted at points that encourage the flow of energy and provide therapeutic benefits.
Lake Spine Specialists offers a wide variety of massage techniques, such as Deep Tissue Massage, Swedish (Relaxation) Massage, Myofascial Release, Trigger Points, and Sports Stretching Techniques, that work for relieving your pain and increasing your flexibility and balance.
Certain exercises can improve and strengthen your muscles and connective tissues. Conditions like low back pain, headaches, and neck pain can be treated with corrective exercises.
