About Our Practice
Dr. Brown and Dr. Spillman offer conservative, patient-centered treatment of spine-related pain and headaches. Low back pain, mid-back pain, neck pain, sciatica, arm pain, sports injuries, tension and migraine headaches, tmj disorder, shin splints, and plantar fascitis are among the conditions that have responded well, including injuries from work, sports and auto.
Traditional chiropractic techniques are combined with modern approaches to exercise and posture based on individual needs. Xrays are used only when necessary, and we work closely with referring family doctors, physical therapists and specialists.
The primary treatment offered in our office is chiropractic manipulation or adjustment. This safe and comfortable procedure relieves pain and helps restore the mobility of the spine. We also utilize heat and cold, ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation and various massage techniques (including the Graston Technique), depending on the problem.
We believe that exercise and rehabilitation have a crucial role in the treatment of almost all problems that present to us for treatment, and that proper postural alignment, lifting technique, and other aspects of optimal biomechanics are also important factors.
Exercise approaches that are emphasized include the McKenzie approach to neck and back pain, strength training, yoga-type flexibility exercises, core stabilization and Williams flexion exercises.
