With offices in Fort Lee, NJ, Valley Stream, NY, and Toronto, ON, you have more opportunities to get the relief you are seeking.
With back pain, the most important thing is to get a correct diagnosis of what is at the root of the problem. Many things can cause back pain, and it may require that you have an x-ray to determine what is causing yours. Once the cause of the pain has been determined, a personalized treatment plan will be designed to get you back to the pain-free life you deserve.
Scoliosis is a three-dimensional rotational curvature of the spine. It usually develops in late childhood or early adolescence. Dr. Kang uses non-invasive therapy to help to improve the condition. The Schroth Method of physical therapy uses breathwork along with exercise to stop the condition from getting worse and reverse the curve by training the structure of the body to resist gravity. The goal is to avoid the need for surgery and to correct posture.
Chiropractic adjustment can help relieve back pain from a variety of sources, including the misalignment of the spine. The back is composed of 24 vertebrae and 23 discs that cushion the bones. It is also surrounded by muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Chiropractic adjustments help to relieve pain throughout the body and reduce inflammation. Adjustments also help to improve health and overall wellness.
Spinal decompression therapy can help relieve pain related to degenerative or bulging discs. These are usually in the cervical or lumbar area of the back. This therapy provides stretching and relaxation in the spine that allows the disc to go back to the position it belongs in. Ultrasound therapy, muscle stimulation, heat and exercise are used in conjunction with this therapy. With exercise at home and maintenance visits to the office, most patients can expect not to have recurrence of symptoms.
This therapy can help with joint, muscle, and soft tissue pain. Soundwaves vibrate and massage and have a heating effect. It promotes healing at the cellular level.
