This therapy is often used in our office in conjunction with chiropractic care.
The process involves the patient laying on their back while a roller, with a controlled amount of pressure, rolls along each side of the spine while also moving up and down the entire spine.
The benefits are:
-help alleviate discomfort
-stretch tight spinal muscles
-reduce muscle spasm
-reduce pressure on the intervertebral discs
-widen intervertebral foramen
-relieve nerve root impingement
-increase blood flow
-increase lymphatic flow to remove toxins
Think of it as your spine getting a “mini massage” and an adjustment one right after the other. This can help the chiropractic adjustments not only hold longer but also speed up the healing time to getting back to your true potential even faster.
