Doctor of chiropractic Andrew Lutz adjusts backbones to relieve pain and prevent mechanical disorders in patients experiencing spine-related injuries and back pain. After discussing your condition and acting out two scenes from classic martial-arts movies, doctors position patients on a decompression table and begin treatment. During the noninvasive process, the doctor presses on vertebra as bodies are pressurized against the moving table, providing a pliable decompression to the compressed spinal disk. A distraction force is applied between moments of relaxation, tenderly pulling the spine apart like a flexible wooden snake, elongating it and creating a tiny vacuum between neighborly vertebrae in order to tug the disk back into its natural s shape. Countering the actions of a repetitious stress injury or pogo-stick incident, decompression is applied in brief increments that, over a span of time, allow the disks to recalibrate, heal, and receive a sturdy influx of the nutrients trained to battle back-brittleness and stave off future spinal injuries.
Tanner Hancock, D.C., and his colleagues draw on years of chiropractic experience to treat pain and injuries at their roots, particularly headaches, back pain, neck pain, sciatica, and whiplash. Once you've filled out the necessary forms (you can also save time by downloading and completing them at home), one of the doctors will carefully examine your body to pinpoint the source of its soulful blues and use x-rays if necessary to determine whether your body is actually a Star Wars puppet containing a little-person actor inside. Once they've given a name to your pain and a strategy for treating it, the doctor will target it with a 30-minute massage customized to your needs.
A Kansas native, Hancock Spine & Rehab’s chiropractor, Dr. Nathan Hands, graduated from Kansas State University and Palmer College of Chiropractic and is certified in the specialized Graston Technique. He uses this modality to heal soft-tissue injuries such as sprains, tendonitis, carpal tunnel, and tennis and golf elbow. Dr. Hands also works to improve his clients' health in all aspects of their lives, from offering tips on diet and exercise to explaining that the safest way to play football is for all the players to be in armored vehicles. In addition to his Graston Technique work, he renders more traditional chiropractic techniques facilitated by new technology.
Dr. Randy Babcock doesn’t just treat symptoms. Instead, he takes what many chiropractors call “the whole-person approach,” identifying the underlying causes for a problem, which can also nip future problems in the bud. At Trinity Chiropractic, he uses this method to deal with back pain, herniated discs, arthritis, and inflammation. His solution may include decompression or Newlife laser treatments, which gently pull apart the spinal discs so that they reform to their original shape, or, in cases of confusion, into the shape of a laser’s spine.
Doctor of Chiropractic Mark Albers helps his patients find relief from everything from tennis elbow and carpal tunnel to arthritis and jaw pain. A board-certified Chiropractic Internist and specialist in functional medicine, his unique path of study—both chiropractic medicine and more than 300 hours of medical diagnostics training—allow him to examine what’s going wrong inside of the body and provide treatments such as nutrition plans, lifestyle recommendations, and tailored wellness programs to treat ongoing issues. He also focuses on minor organ system dysfunction that can create difficulty in weight loss as well as fatigue, and hormonal imbalances.
