Like the hand inside a sock puppet, the spine supports the body's every motion and keeps it from collapsing into a formless sack of cotton and googly eyes. Maintain your vertebral integrity with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a consultation, evaluation, and five spinal-decompression treatments at First State Health & Wellness (a $500 value). This Groupon is valid for locations in Newark and Rehoboth Beach.
First State Health & Wellness’s legion of experienced practitioners helps achy backs and sore shoulders find sweet spinal serenity with nonsurgical spinal-decompression therapy. After an initial evaluation and consultation, First State's technicians task the DRX9000 machine with treating discomfort such as lower-back pain, sciatica, and herniated or bulging disks. Each 30-minute session aims to evict aches to the land of country songs by applying a customizable pulling force to help relieve pressure between disks.
After decompression, clients spend 15 minutes relaxing with a cold pack and electric muscle stimulation to help loosen and relax affected areas. Spinal decompression may also help alleviate pain associated with chronic neck pain, degenerative disk disease, and pain suffered by mothers whose children repeatedly step on sidewalk cracks. Twenty treatments over six weeks are recommended for maximum results.
First State Health & Wellness
Doctor of Chiropractic Stacy Cohen founded First State Health & Wellness shortly after he received his degree from New York Chiropractic College in 1984. Since then, his center has expanded to six locations and welcomed aboard 12 other chiropractic physicians.
Each location features traditional adjustment techniques and Activator tools that rapidly and gently prod trouble spots. A few locations feature specialty techniques such as the Newark location's high-tech subluxation scanning and the Wilmington location's adjustable Thompson Terminal Point table made up of several different cushions that help it morph into an even more therapeutic surface: a ping-pong table.
Dr. Cohen and his staff complement their chiropractic touch with acupuncture, massage, and nutritional counseling services, which are overseen by the center's own licensed acupuncturists and certified massage therapists. Together, the team's collective efforts have been awarded The News Journal's Reader's Choice Award for Best Chiropractic Office in 2010, 2011, and 2012, as well as the BBB's Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics in 2003 and 2009.
