Nektalov Family Chiropractic Physical Therapy Rehabilitation

3.1 STEP 1- Diagnosis

Diagnosis will involve:

1. A preliminary examination to check with Posture Screen the alignment of your spine and other structures, as well as make certain inferences based on how you respond to specific stimuli.

2. Specific spinal x-rays to pin point, measure and determine the exact cause of your condition.

3. A thorough analysis of your posture and what interventions are necessary in order to bring your spine back into the correct alignment.

3.2 STEP 2 - Developing a Treatment Plan

Once the cause of your pain and the specific problems which need to be corrected have been identified, you will have a consultation with Dr. Boris Nektalov to discuss what treatment options will best suit your needs.

It is highly recommended that you bring a spouse or significant other to this consultation so that you can consider your treatment options together.

Your treatment plan may include any of the following therapies:

Cervical Spine Wall Traction Therapy

Used to re-establish movement in both the cervical and lumbar spine, hydrate discs and prepare you for the restoration of your cervical curves.

For anyone who isn’t familiar with the technical terms for the different sections of the spine, the cervical spine refers to the seven vertebrae of the neck and the lumbar spine is the lower back consisting of five vertebrae.

Spinal Wobble Chair Therapy

Facilitates all possible combinations of motion needed for lumbar disc mobility, and improves re-hydration, nutrition delivery and waste elimination.

Chiropractic Spinal Adjustment

Static Traction Table

Static Traction Table Therapy

Used to relieve pressure on compressed nerves in the spinal column both in the cervical and lumbar region.

Lumbar Spine Flexion Distraction Therapy

4.1 Where does my back pain come from?

The majority of spinal conditions are caused by poor posture.

Unfortunately, everything about our modern lifestyle encourages poor posture; from the heavy bags we carried at school to the couches we slump into in the evening to the 8-hour workdays many of us spend hunched in front of a computer.

Of course, injury and disease are also common causes of spinal conditions.

5.1 How long will it take?

The time required may differ vastly from person to person depending on the severity of your condition and other factors, but following diagnosis our therapists may be able to give you some indication.

The typical chronic pain patient may need 3-4 sessions a week for somewhere between 18 to 24 weeks to restore postural alignment and relieve pain symptoms.

This might sounds a lot, but unfortunately spinal conditions are challenging to address because there is no magic pill which can instantly restore healthy posture. The process of strengthening muscles, repairing tissues and pulling misaligned vertebrae into place takes time, patience, attention and care.

If your injury is due to poor posture, you have probably been developing this posture over many years. Luckily the body is extremely adaptable and it probably won’t take you that long to restore the healthy alignment to your spine, especially if you are rigorous in following your treatment plan and performing your home exercise program.

How effective is it?

Our package is unique, you are unique and there are a huge variety of spinal conditions ranging from mild to severe, so it is difficult to quantify exactly how effective it will be for you.

As an indication however, studies found that using the Chiropractic Bio-Physics Model in a treatment package very similar to ours the average chronic pain patient achieved a 75-80% reduction in their chronic pain symptoms and a 50% correction of their alignment following 18 to 24 weeks of treatment.
