Often, people try to push through back pain and neck pain, thinking that if they go to a doctor, they will have to go through surgical treatment. This prolonged pain can be more damaging to the individual. A herniated disc, or bulging disc as it is often referred to, can be painful and frustrating.  This is where the rubber-like disc in between vertebrae ruptures or slides out of position, causing muscle tension, mobility limitations, and sometimes pinched nerves.  More often than not, this can be corrected through non-surgical means. At Innovative Health and Wellness, our Spinal Decompression service has helped many patients in the Woodstock area for back pain and neck pain. After a thorough examination, we employ a specialized table that uses motorized traction to gently decompress the spine, encouraging the flow of water and nutrients for maximum healing. Patients leave feeling rejuvenated and pain free after just one session. Give us a call today to find out how you can set up your free consultation!

Here are a few stretches you can try at home to help bring some pain relief:

 

Chin Tuck:

Start sitting in the upright position in a chair or on the bed. Keeping your back straight, slowly pull your chin into your chest. You should have a double chin if done correctly. Hold this position for 10-15 seconds. This will help decompress the upper spine and will bring neck pain relief. Be careful to move slowly because rapid movement may pinch nerves.

 

Shoulder Blade Stretch

Sitting in the upright position with your hands by your side, squeeze your shoulder blades together and hold for 10-15 seconds. Then do the opposite and pull them apart while slightly leaning forward. This stretch moves the upper spine around, freeing up water and nutrients to flow a little better.

“Love this place! Stefania and Valerie at the front desk are so sweet:) They always have smiles on their faces, and are so helpful! I came here at the recommendation of a friend after being rear ended in a wreck, and having awful neck pain. I have to admit I was a little nervous at first because I am a very private person, and it is difficult for me to have people in my personal space, but the whole staff made me feel so comfortable! Dr. Orlando is so kind and gentle. He really puts your mind at ease, and just makes you feel better!!! I don’t know how they do it, but no matter what kind of day I’ve had at work, I always leave this place smiling:) Thanks for taking such great care of me!!!”*

“I have been going to Innovative for almost 7 months for weight loss and it has been an awesome experience! I have lost 60 pounds and definitely could not have done it without the support and encouragement of the staff! I go there every week for weigh-ins and blood pressure checks, and they have become like family to me. They go through my highs and lows with me, and keep me on track. It has been a life-changing experience, and I would highly recommend Innovative if you are ready to lose weight and lead a healthier life!”*
