For Herniated Disc & Carpal Tunnel

This special tool helps to relieve low back, neck, and mid back pain. It relieves your pain caused by herniated discs, spinal decay, leg pain or carpal tunnel. As a result of research studies, there are thousands of pre and post treatment MRI’s that show the disc lesion retracts following VDP treatment1. If you suffer from these conditions call our office, (845) 445-9700 to find help and get the relief you desire. (1 See the research studies conducted by Dr.Broughton DC.)


Toggle Recoil Adjustment

An adjustment for the Atlas, the first vertebrae in the neck. "The Palmer Recoil was just beginning to be taught at the Palmer School of Chiropractic in 1909-10

Leg Length Analysis Concept

The neurological basis for balance is found in the Reticular System of the brain where the Inhibitory and Facilitory systems maintain balance of the musculature of the body. A neurological imbalance will affect the musculature of the legs resulting in the appearance of one leg being short when observed with the patient in the prone position. The feet are observed in the extended position and then flexed to compare one with the other noting any difference in the appearance of length. Contraindications would be an anatomical short leg, history of poorly healed fracture, or a joint implant.

The length is observed at the juncture of where the heel and shoe come together with inversion and eversion removed and no dorsiflexion or plantar flexion of the feet. Subluxation levels are based on the "Leg Analysis "to determine what areas that may need to be adjusted. This is correlated with Physical Examination, X-ray and Motion findings, Palpation and Instrumentation utilized by the Doctor of Chiropractic.

Specific Diversified Technique

The focus with the Diversified technique is on restoration to normal biomechanical function, and correction of subluxation. In addition, Diversified methods have been developed to adjust extremity joints, allowing for beneficial applications in treating sports injuries and other injuries. Diversified adjusting of the spine uses specific lines of drives for all manual thrusts, allowing for specificity in correcting mechanical distortions of the spine.

What is Intersegmental Traction:

  • Gently re-establishes normal range of motion to the spine and aids in decreasing progression of arthritis.
  • Increases circulation and wakes up tired muscles from accidents or injuries.
  • Improves balance, strength and flexibility.
  • Improves posture.
  • Decreases pain.

Aqua Therapy:

  • Promotes relaxation.
  • Decreases muscle spasm or spasticity.
  • Improves circulation and movement.
  • Helps decrease compression of the disc.
  • Try it and see for yourself. Sessions of 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 minutes are available.

sEMG:

What is sEMG?

sEMG stands for Surface Electromyography. This device measures the amount of electrical activity your muscles release when they are contracting, also known as muscle tension. It is similar in function to an EKG, which measures heart muscle activity.

Is It Painful?

Not at all. This makes it totally safe for infants, children, pregnant women or seniors. It simply requires placement of small probes against the skin. Testing takes less than a few minutes.

Why is muscle activity important?

Muscles have a tendency to "brace" (or freeze up) in response to malfunctions of the spine known as vertebral subluxations which create an alteration in neural function which can potentially adversely affect muscles, blood vessels, internal glands and organs.

What do the results mean?

The sEMG produces a color report in graphical form superimposed upon the image of the spinal cord and vertebrae.
