Find relief for your disk problems at Chiropractic of Naples

Manual and mechanical traction has been utilized for years as a safe solution in the treatment of spinal conditions involving nerve root compression, acute muscular spasm and osteoarthritic discogenic conditions. However, all mechanical traction devices are not the same. Chattanooga Triton Traction system sets the standard.
With the Triton Progressive Therapeutic Rehabilitation System, Chattanooga has introduced a new generation of innovative traction devices that mimic the intricate nuances of the manual therapist’s hands, thereby expanding the features of modern day traction.

Common Questions:

Do you see people who have had spinal surgery but are still in pain?

A: Yes, there are a percentage of people that for any number of reasons are deemed surgical candidates and do not find relief after undergoing surgery.  For many of those people, Decompression may offer the relief they have been seeking.

Do I need new X-rays or an MRI?

A: In many cases updated diagnostic information can reveal findings that were not present on previous testing. X-rays can give important information when evaluating the condition of your spine and any possible degenerative processes of your discs. At Chiropractic of Naples, we offer state of the art digital x-rays to provide us with the best quality films to best evaluate your condition and determine the appropriate care plan. If an updated MRI is required to properly evaluate your current condition and needs, we work closely with a number of local imaging specialists.

How long will it take for me to get better?

A: Depending upon your specific situation, relief care can vary from a few weeks to a few months. At Chiropractic of Naples, we will do a thorough evaluation including a sophisticated digital analysis (computerized diagnostic scans) to determine where the stresses in your life have caused the pinched nerves that are causing you pain and/or stiffness and address them properly.

"I am so thankful for Dr. Matt and the entire team at Chiropractic of Naples! I was in a great deal of pain due to a back injury the first time I visited the office. I knew immediately that I was in the right place to rebuild and feel strong again. A combination of adjustments and time on the decompression table have been a game changer. Dr. Matt takes time every session to ask how things are progressing and confirm that we are on the right track. I look forward to my appointments because I know that I am surrounded by a team of professionals who are dedicated to providing the highest level of chiropractic care. Thank you!" -Katherine M., Naples Fl.
