Chiropractic care redefined.
AUTO ACCIDENT INJURY TREATMENT
Are you experiencing pain or discomfort after an auto accident? Our team has tremendous experience diagnosing and treating auto related injuries. We know what to look for and how to treat it.
Chiropractic adjustment or manipulation is a manual procedure that utilizes the highly refined skills developed during our Doctor of Chiropractic’s intensive years of chiropractic education. Our doctors use their hands to manipulate all joints of the body, not just the spine, in order to restore or enhance joint function. Chiropractic adjustments help to realign the body, resolve joint dysfunction and inflammation, increase joint and muscle mobility and reduce the patient’s pain.
Our doctors like the whole body approach and not just focus on the area of pain, sometimes releasing an area away from the pain will cause the problem to go away. This is considered the referral pain pattern. Chiropractic adjustment is a highly controlled procedure that rarely causes discomfort. Our doctors adapt the procedure to meet the specific needs of each patient. Patients often note positive changes in their symptoms immediately following treatment.
PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY TREATMENT
Peripheral neuropathy presents itself when your peripheral nerves have suffered some sort of damage. Symptoms of this damage typically includes weakness, numbness and pain, most commonly in your extremities but it may also affect other areas of your body.
Generally speaking we hear patients describe their symptoms as “stabbing pain, tingling and burning.”
At Greater Orlando Chiropractic & Wellness, we believe that chiropractic care is an immensely important part of treating peripheral neuropathy. We will partner with you to diagnose, manage symptoms and coordinate holistic care plans so that you can feel your best!
Don’t let peripheral neuropathy pain control your life. We can help.
PETTIBON CERVICAL TRACTION
The Pettibon System has helped improve health in patients by emphasizing whole care that includes spine and posture correction, nutrition, and muscular development. With our rehabilitation tools patients actively participate in their care both at the clinic and at home. When patients come to the clinic, they don’t sit passively waiting to see the doctor or physical therapist. They prepare for their examination by doing warm up exercises and stretching their muscles, ligaments and discs using the Wobble Chair and the Repetitive Cervical Traction.
The Pettibon Cervical Traction is used for loading and unloading cycles that reestablish motion in the cervical and lumbar spine, hydrates discs, and prepares for restoration of cervical curves. A TMJ version is also available for those who cannot tolerate any pressure on their jaw or chin.
ELECTRICAL STIMULATION THERAPY
Electrical stimulation therapy is a therapeutic treatment that applies electrical stimulation in treating muscle spasms and pain. It can help prevent atrophy and build strength in patients with injuries. It is also helpful in keeping muscles active especially after any type of spinal cord injury or strokes.
Physical therapists and other medical practitioners attach electrodes on the patient’s skin, causing the target muscles to contract. With electric stimulation, the patient can maintain muscle tome and strength that would other wise waste away due to lack of usage.
Electric stimulation works by mimicking the natural way by which the body exercises its muscles. The electrodes attached to the skin deliver impulses that make the muscles contract. It is beneficial in increasing the patient’s range of motion and improves the circulation of the body. It is used in treating conditions like sprains, arthritis, back pain scoliosis and sciatica.
Electric stimulation can be muscular, general and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS). The muscular type of electric stimulation seeks to strengthen the muscles by reducing muscle spasms. Also known as EMS, this stimulates the skeletal muscle using electric impulses to cause muscle contraction.
An alternative to invasive, surgical procedures.

COLD LASER THERAPY
Cold Laser Therapy or Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and is thought to help accelerate the healing process. It can be used on patients who suffer from a variety of acute and chronic conditions in order to help eliminate pain, swelling, reduce spasms and increase functionality.
Cold lasers are handheld devices used by the clinician and are often the size of a flashlight. The laser is placed directly over the injured area for 30 seconds to several minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated and the dose provided by the cold laser unit. During this time, the non-thermal photons of light that are emitted from the laser pass through the skins layers (the dermis, epidermis, and the subcutaneous tissue or tissue fat under the skin). This light has the ability to penetrate 2 to 5 centimeters below the skin at 90mw and 830 nm.
Once the light energy passes through the layers of skin and reaches the target area, it is absorbed and interacts with the light sensitive elements in the cell. This process can be compared to photosynthesis in plants – sunlight is absorbed by plants, which is then converted to usable energy so that the plant can grow. When cells absorb this light energy, it initiates a series of events in the cell that is theorized to eventually result in normalizing damaged or injured tissue, a reduction in pain, inflammation, edema and an overall reduction in healing time by increasing intracellular metabolism.
At Greater Orlando Chiropractic & Wellness, we teach our patients how to perform special “blueprint” exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan.
In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
