Services Provided by Our Chiropractor in Bernardsville, NJ
The first idea that usually comes to mind when you think of a chiropractor is a person cracking your back. However, chiropractic care goes beyond that. It's has morphed into a highly advanced scope of medicine that includes more than just chiropractic adjustments. Here at Bernards Sports Chiropractic, serving Bernardsville, NJ, and the nearby region, our chiropractor is equipped to provide the exceptional chiropractic care you need.
Our chiropractor, Dr. Matthew Lanum, may recommend a standard chiropractic alignment, also known as an adjustment, if you have a herniated disc, bulging disc, disc degeneration, or another similar back issue. For this treatment, he will have you lie on a table on your stomach. He will then manually move the vertebrae in your back so they realign. As a result, you'll have less pressure on the nearby nerves and soft tissue.
Our practitioner may recommend spinal decompression, which consists of our chiropractor positioning you on a specialized table, particularly one of our Kennedy tables. Next, our chiropractor will connect you to rigging. The machine will then slowly pull the top half of your body as well as the lower half. You're gently pulled in different directions to pull apart your discs and separate them from your vertebrae.
We may advise you to undergo laser therapy, usually as a complementary treatment to your other chiropractic care. We use a low-level laser, which doesn't heat your skin the way a high-intensity laser does. Instead, it uses low-intensity to help reduce pain and swelling while having minimal impact on the skin.
Physical rehabilitation is another treatment we use for neuropathy, injury recovery, and chronic pain management.
During physical therapy, Dr. Lanum will guide you through a series of exercises that slowly stretch and work the area causing issues. Over time, the stretches gradually increase in difficulty to optimize your range of motion and enhance functionality. Physical rehabilitation will also help with injury recovery and decrease your pain.
For chronic pain, neuropathy, and various other musculoskeletal problems, our practitioner may recommend lifestyle changes that can reduce your pain and assist in keeping or improving your range of motion. We can also suggest ways to aid in pain and inflammation reduction naturally.
At our chiropractic office, we use Kennedy tables, low-level laser therapy, and natural practices to assist with managing your chronic conditions and healing your acute ones.
