in DC |
I have been going to see Dr. Fred for 25 years, now. He is absolutely fabulous! Not only is he one of the best chiropractic doctors that I have ever gone to, his fees are incredibly affordable. Definitely a lot of doctoring at a very reasonable price. Dr. Fred - I love ya, and will see you this week. (By the way folks - I am a former bodybuilder in my 60's and I have seen a few chiropractic docs in my day;) take it from me - you cannot do any finer that Dr. Fred.
I have been to many Chiropractors over the last 30 years. Dr Bruno is the best by far.

Diversified Technique

This is an adjusting style that encompasses hands-on moves taken from a variety of Chiropractic techniques developed over many years by some of the best in our profession. High velocity, low amplitude force is delivered in a specific direction to the involved vertebrae to reduce subluxation, increase joint mobility, and restore more normal function. The speed, depth, and direction of the thrust is the result of years of practice experience and a thorough understanding of spinal biomechanics.

Cox Flexion/Distraction

Dr. James Cox is the founder of this non-force, very gentle, effective adjusting technique. The doctor uses a specially designed table that allows him to manually traction the involved spinal segments with the patient lying face down in the horizontal position. The manual, gentle series of pumping movements decompresses the involved disc, opens and re-aligns the facets (joints), and opens the canals where the nerves exit between the involved vertebrae. This is a wonderful form of spinal decompression that has proven effective in the treatment of herniated discs, sciatic pain, facet syndromes and other spinal problems. This technique has kept many people from requiring surgical intervention.

Instrument Adjusting

An Activator (a hand-held spring loaded instrument) or an Arthrostim (a motor driven, pulsating device) is used to deliver an adjustment to reduce subluxation, increase joint mobility, and allow for more normal function of the involved area. Both instruments gently deliver a high-velocity, low-amplitude, mechanized thrust to the targeted segment. Instruments are extremely effective when adjusting shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees or other joints. The Arthrostim delivers a series of thrusts at a rate of approximately 12 to 14 beats per second, whereas the Activator must be manually operated for each thrust. Both instruments are quite gentle and very well-tolerated by patients.

Sci-Fit Pro 1000:

This is an Upper Body Exerciser in which the person is seated and uses their arms to perforrm a movement that is the same as pedaling a bicycle. Among other benefits, it's used for rehabilitating shoulder injuries as well as for enhancing the healing process in whiplash injuries.

 

 

Physiotherapy Electric Muscle Stimulation

Low-volt galvanic current is applied to the involved surrounding musculature to help reduce deep tissue inflammation, increase local circulation, and reduce muscle tension and/or spasm.

Motorized Segmental Traction

With the patient lying face up on a traction table, a series of rollers travel up and down the spine creating a wave-like rhythm that passively mobilizes the spinal joints causing increased circulation of both blood and spinal fluid as well as relaxation of the spinal muscles. This is true passive exercise of the spinal column.
