In searching patients for the source of their pain, Doctor of Chiropractic Ty Dworak relies not only on hands but also on readings from digital scans and x-rays. These tools allow him to pinpoint the location of pinched nerves, slipped discs, or ingrown tails by producing a full visual re-creation of the spine. Once he’s located the issue, he administers noninvasive, drug-free treatments designed to stimulate the body’s ability to self-heal without the use of medications or surgery. Apart from his signature spinal adjustments, Dr. Dworak also directs the healing process with therapeutic exercises and by helping patients obtain proper nutrition.
