South Hills Spine and Extremity Center
Like sophisticated spies in an action movie, Doctor of Chiropractic Jonathan Abel and his staff brandish a bevy of modern gadgets to accomplish their task. With flexion/distraction hand techniques and mechanical beds, they adjust their patients' spinal columns to nurture healing in misaligned vertebrae. Small, handheld adjustment tools enable them to relieve pain and move joints with low-force manipulations, and low-level lasers saturate cells to stimulate tissue repair. Additionally, Dr. Abel's knowledge of the Graston Technique gifts him with the ability to break apart connective tissues caused by repetitive movements with gentle kneads from a stainless-steel bar.
