DRX 9000 Manhattan New York Chiropractor, DRX 9000 Manhattan
I recently introduced Whole Body Vibration into my spinal decompression protocol.
I use the Power Plate
What the whole body vibration does is relaxs muscle spasms in the spine and the body.
The science of Whole body vibration is not new in fact it has been around for several decades. The research proves the efficancy of WBV to quickly and effectivly reduce muscle spasm and helps with healing of injured tissues and has been proven to increase the strength of postural muscles supporting the spine by up to 25%.

I like the Power plate because they have the most well known platform on the market and fund research int WBV.
The Power plate is expensive but I always believe you get what you pay for.
I am believe I am the only Chiropractor in New York City that utulizes spinal decompression and whole body vibration.
These two treatments combined with Cold laser therapy and Chiropractic provide and excellent treatment for patients suffering with herniated discs.

New York Chiropractor, Spinal Decompression
More and more studies point to spinal decompression being an extremely effective treatment for herniated discs and many Chiropractors have now begun adding this to their practice.
Before you consider visiting a doctor for spinal decompression know these things.

1: Spinal decompression is not a panacea , Success depends on patient qualification, Choose patients wisely and you will see optimal results visit for more info.

2: Nutritional support is important Supplements like Omega 3's , Calcium and Magnesium are important as well as staying hydrated with plenty of H20

3: Bracing following the procedure using a good triple pull back support to prevent to much movement must be worn for 3 hours following procedure.

4: Developing core muscles once patient can tolerate using pilates, yoga, physio-ball training or my favorite recommendation swimming.

5: I also believe that a proper gait analysis be conducted to determine the need for proper orthotics or feet support can dramatically improve patient outcome.

Be patient and follow all these recommendations. The spinal disc has a poor blood supply so if you smoke quit! It takes 3-4 months to see a change in a MRI so wait to get a post MRI scan.
