We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. The correction methods we use now are even safer, more comfortable, and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Preston Peacock has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment. Dr. Peacock uses a variety of techniques in his office; including the diverisfied technique, Thompson technique, and the Graston technique. He will use an activator upon request.
We are all looking for something new that can get us out of the pain we suffer from. That is exactly why spinal decompression was put together by a specialized team of engineers to meet the needs of patients who are wanting and needing more for their back problem than just the "same old thing". This offers doctors the tools and clinical outcomes they strive for, and patients a better quality of life they deserve. In our office we focus on new innovations, we are committed to utilizing the latest cutting-edge technology to improve our patients quality of life, especially for those suffering from back and neck problems like herniated discs, degenerative disc disease and other spinal injuries.
The treatment is traction-based, with gradual application and release of traction forces designed to "trick" the para-spinal muscles so they do not guard or spasm. This creates a negative pressure on the spine, which then allows increased blood flow bringing along substantial oxygen and nutrients. This allows the protruded or herniated disc to be pulled back within the normal confines of the disc, which permits healing to occur. Our decompression table uses state of the art technology to apply a distraction/traction force to help the body reduce the inflammation and relieve nerve compression often associated with low back and neck pain.
A study in the American Journal of Pain Management by Shealy et al in 1997 showed that 86% of ruptured intervertebral disc patients achieved good to excellent results with decompression. Sciatica and back pain were relieved substantially, and of the facet arthrosis patients 75% obtained good to excellent results with spinal decompression.
Massage therapy has been used for hundreds of years to provide relaxation and to promote the healing process. Our HydroMassge bed is an alternative form of massage therapy that temporarily helps to provide relief of minor aches and pains, reduce levels of stress and anxiety, increases circulation where massaged, and relieves muscle soreness, stiffness, and tension. It's a comfortable and convenient form of heated massage that in as little as 10 minutes provides a relaxing and rejuvenating experience.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize each of our patients as a whole person, and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between ourselves and them.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance your return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Dr. Preston Peacock can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
