At Northeastern Spinal Health & Rehabilitation, we take great pride in providing the finest healthcare to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different healthcare services we offer in our Woodland Park office.
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Michael Czupak has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you. Dr. Michael Czupak can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
To complement and enhance the healing effects of Dr. Michael's specific Chiropractic adjustment treatment, we at Northeastern Spinal Health & Rehabilitation also provide the following physiological therapeutic procedures:
A Conservative Treatment Alternative For Patients With Chronic Pain
Spinal manipulation under anesthesia is a procedure that primarily originated with the osteopathic profession and has been utilized for the treatment of spinal pain since the late 1930s. Documentation regarding the success and value of manipulation under anesthesia has been recorded in the osteopathic literature since 1948 when Clybourne reported in the Journal of American Osteopath Association a success rate of 80-90% which has been maintained to this day.
In the last two decades, the emphasis regarding manipulation in osteopathic education has greatly decreased. Therefore, the osteopaths that had been adequately trained in manipulation are coming to the close of their careers or have retired. Because of the need for continuance of this procedure, the focus for the performance of spinal manipulation under anesthesia has now shifted to chiropractors and their expertise in spinal manipulation skills.
Indication For Manipulation Under Anesthesia
Spinal manipulation under anesthesia is a procedure that is intended for patients that suffer from sometimes acute, but mostly chronic musculoskeletal disorders in conjunction with biomechanical aberrancies. These individuals have also been unresponsive to previous conservative therapy. Etiology of their pain can be disc bulge/herniation, chronic sprain/strain, failed back surgery, myofacial pain syndromes in conjunction with those listed below. The procedure is extremely beneficial for the patient that has muscle spasm accompanied with pain and terminal joint range of motion loss. These types of patients typically respond well to manipulation/physical therapy/exercise, but their relief may only be temporary (days to weeks). To ensure good results with a procedure of this type, one of the most important considerations is patient selection.
Back to top
1 Bulging, protruded, prolapsed or herniated discs without free fragment and are not surgical candidates
2 Frozen or fixated articulations
3 Failed low back surgery
4 Compression syndromes with or without radiculopathies caused from adhesion formation, but not associated with osteophyic entrapment
5 Restricted motion, which causes pain and apprehension from the patient
6 Unresponsive to manipulation and adjustment when they are the therapy of choice
7 Unresponsive pain, which interferes with the function of daily life and sleep patterns, but which falls within the parameters for manipulative treatment
8 Unresponsive muscle contraction, which is preventing normal daily activities and function
9 Post-traumatic syndrome injuries from acceleration/deceleration or deceleration/acceleration types of injuries, which result in painful exacerbation of chronic fixations
10 Chronic recurrent neuromusculoskeletal dysfunction syndromes, which result in a regular periodic treatment series, that are always exacerbation of the same condition
11 Neuromusculoskeletal conditions that are not surgical candidates but have reached MMI especially with occupational injuries
