Patients love Dr. Day’s whole body vibration machine that keeps correction in place while it stimulates natural healing.
What would you do to eliminate lower back pain that keeps you from doing the things you want to do – and the things you need to do – this spring? It could be as easy as picking up the phone to call Dr. Craig Day at Dr. Day’s Chiropractic.
Dr. Day offers a conservative treatment option that has provided lasting relief for many patients and restored them to their normal lives without steroid injections, drugs or surgery. In the past, a patient suffering from disc problems or lower back pain was usually given pain medications, instructed to refrain from physical activities, and referred for physical therapy or conservative chiropractic care. When they did not progress, spinal surgery was the only option. That no longer holds true.
Dr. Day has had amazing success with a relatively new procedure called non-surgical spinal decompression (NSSD). A highly sophisticated machine cycles the patient through a series of gentle pulls, holds and releases. The therapy is painless and so relaxing that many patients say they actually fall asleep.
Some have suffered with pain for a long time. Others need to get back on track in a short time. Dr. Day explains that back pain does not recognize age or a person’s walk of life. From accidents and sports injuries of people in their 20s to slips and falls among those in their 80s – those very active and others sedentary – the one thing they all have in common is that they found relief through Dr. Day’s treatment.
Non-surgical spinal decompression has been proven effective for treating pain associated with bulging and herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and even relapse or failed back surgery. The clinically tested and FDA cleared procedure consists of 20 to 25 sessions in a four to six week period. The number of sessions varies, depending on the patient’s condition.
Dr. Day’s treatment room is filled with photographs and success stories of patients who found relief, at last, through non-surgical spinal decompression. Patients thank him for their gardening, biking, dancing and many other activities they thought they would never be able to enjoy again.
One reason they are so successful is the fact that Dr. Day does not just leave his patients on their own after NSSD treatment. After-care is what makes the difference.
Dr. Day includes a procedure called whole body vibration (WBV) to accelerate healing. This rehabilitative treatment, developed by the Soviet space program in the 1960s, strengthens core muscles so that correction from spinal decompression therapy remains corrected.
“My patients love the feeling from the machine’s vibrating platform,” he says. “They have never done anything like this, and it really feels good. It’s good for them, too.”
Dr. Day strives to provide each and every patient with personalized care, so he knows all the things that they want to do and need to do when they are healed. “It’s all about you” is his motto. In order to assure this quality care, he limits the number of new patients to 12 per month. Most of them are referrals.
Anyone else who suffers from chronic back pain or sciatica can fill out an online survey to determine candidacy for treatment. “If you have tried everything, this may be your last stop,” he says. “This conservative treatment option can eliminate the need for surgery altogether.”
Dr. Craig Day’s office is conveniently located in the heart of midtown Tulsa at 3023 S. Harvard, the northeast corner of 31st and Harvard. A courteous staff member would be happy to answer any questions; call (918) 742-2094.
