Chiropractic Care

Your spine is made up of small segments of bone called vertebrae. These vertebrae should have a certain amount of mobility. Due to wear and tear, injuries or falls, the vertebrae can move out of proper alignment. If not addressed, you can end up feeling pain or illness. That is your first sign that a problem exists in your body.

Keeping Your Spine Mobile

You have to take care of it with regular visits to the mechanic so that everything functions properly. Your spine works in the same way. If it is out of alignment, your joints become inflamed, muscles tighten and degeneration can develop.

As a chiropractor in Tampa, Dr. Horchak works to restore the health of your spine, which in turn will increase your overall well-being.

If you begin as a patient and are in acute pain, we will recommend more frequent visits to start with. These appointments will lessen with time as you improve. When you have recovered, we will release you from care, or you can continue with maintenance care to prevent problems from recurring.

Techniques That Work for You

Dr. Horchak will explain the process of the chiropractic adjustment before beginning so that there are no surprises. We will start off extremely gently since not everyone requires the same amount of force. The techniques used include Diversified, which involves a manual adjustment, and the Activator®, a handheld, low-force instrument.

We also offer a Flexion-Distraction table that will gently stretch the muscles of your low back, open up disc spaces and reduce nerve pressure. If you have a preference on how to be adjusted, please just let us know, and we will accommodate you.

When appropriate, we will recommend that you receive a therapy such as electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, hot or cold packs or traction.

Get started by scheduling your appointment today. Saturday hours are available for your convenience.
