Chiropractic—a Popular, Safe, and Effective Treatment for Spinal and Extremity Pain
The Consumer Reports Health Rating Center surveyed 14,000 subscribers who reported experiencing back pain in the past year but who had never undergone back surgery. The April 6, 2009 Consumer Reports survey reported that more than 50% of the participants said the pain severely limited their daily routines for at least a week and 88% of the respondents said their back pain recurred throughout the year.
Cost-effectiveness of Chiropractic Care
2010 Study: "Cost of Care for Common Back Pain Conditions Initiated with Chiropractic Doctors vs. Medical Doctor/Doctor of Osteopathy as First Physician."
The study determined that paid costs for episodes of low back pain care were 40 percent lower when care was initiated with a doctor of chiropractic compared to an allopathic provider.
2005 Study: "Cost-effectiveness of Medical and Chiropractic Care for Acute and Chronic Low Back Pain."
The study determined that acute and chronic chiropractic patients experienced better outcomes in pain, functional disability, and patient satisfaction. Chiropractic care appeared relatively cost-effective for the treatment of chronic low back pain.

Five Important Reasons Why You Should Choose the Spinal Health and Wellness Center:
#1 A Gentle, Comprehensive and Effective Approach to the Treatment of Spinal Pain
Spinal rehabilitation is utilized at the Spinal Health and Wellness Center to assist in the restoration of normal spinal alignment and to improve the health and condition of muscles and ligaments that control the movement of the spine. Treatment utilizes various methods in order to restore normal spinal alignment.
Abnormal alignment of the spine results in abnormal forces on the joints, muscles and ligaments in and around the spine. Spinal adjustments are made with a gentle thrusting technique (Drop Table Adjusting and Instrument Adjusting) to return normal motion to the spinal joints. These low-force adjusting techniques reduce much of the anxiety associated with chiropractic treatment.
#2 Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy
Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy is a soft tissue therapy that involves locating specific hypertonic (tight) and painful points in a muscle and applying specific pressure on these points to relieve abnormal muscle tension.
#3 Nutritional Counseling
The Spinal Health and Wellness Center provides nutritional counseling and whole food supplements and herbs. It is important to address the underlying causes of illness instead of only focusing on symptom reduction. You will be educated on why your body may be showing signs of dysfunction and presented with natural options to help restore optimal health.

The Spinal Health and Wellness Center is conveniently located in the heart of Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania.
