Chiropractic care, massage therapy, and physical rehabilitation therapy can be rolled into one comprehensive plan. This treatment plan brings improved results naturally for back pain patients in Wasilla! The Alaska Back Pain Protocol allows for a more personalized strategy for treating low back pain and offers lasting synergistic results.

Chiropractic Adjustment and Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic adjustments use a gentle force on painful areas redirecting alignment, movement, and nerve function. Our comprehensive chiropractic care in Wasilla focuses on relieving improper vertebral pressure, resulting in decreased inflammation and the elimination of pain. This type of individualized care helps to restore nerve impulses, improve water and nutrient distribution, and stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

Physical Rehabilitative Therapy

Muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints all need strength and flexibility to perform their full range of motion without pain. Our physical rehabilitation in Wasilla helps to bring full restoration to these areas through individualized treatments. Stretches and strength building techniques are combined with in-office and at-home therapies to promote faster healing.

Physical Therapy Modalities

Our physical therapy modalities are chosen by the needs of each patient. Ultrasound, currents, and traction may be utilized according to your needs. Our physical therapy modalities technicians in Anchorage are fully equipped and trained with the most advanced technologies possible.

Massage Therapy

Our massage therapy in Wasilla gives attention to the spine, muscles, joints, and nerves to stimulate natural healing. Our massage therapists are selected from a choice group of specialized academies. They are highly trained and certified. Massage therapy improves the communication systems in the spine and body, increasing brain function for improved results.

Problem areas can be given increased levels of care through the supervision of a chiropractic doctor. Specialized treatments include focused care through our Wasilla massage therapy. Holistic care of this type provides greater results for long-term healing to the spine and central nervous system.

DRS System & Low Back Pain Treatment

The DRS System is an advanced form of disc related low back pain spinal decompression therapy. This series of 30-minute offers an effective alternative for patients with back pain. The DRS System in Wasilla helps clients avoid surgery and stimulates natural healing through advanced disc therapy.
