At Family Health Chiropractic Center, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Tampa 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. Dan Durrieu has many years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises 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. 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? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Dr. Dan Durrieu can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
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.
Herniated Disc: Discs are soft springy cushions that are located between vertebrae which keep bones from rubbing against each other. The center portion of each disc contains a gelatinous substance called the nucleus which is surrounded by a outer ring that provides structure and strength to the disc. The purpose of a disc ( disk ) is to receive the shock of standing, walking, running, etc. A herniated disc, often called a slipped disc or ruptured disc, is a rupture of the center nucleus. When this occurs it may create pressure against one or more of the spinal nerves. If herniated material presses directly on nerve roots or on the spinal cord it can cause a shock-like pain, called sciatica, down the legs, weakness, numbness, or problems with bowels, bladder, or sexual function. This problem can occur suddenly from lifting, twisting, or direct injury such as an auto accident / sports injury, or it can occur gradually from degenerative changes with periods of intensifying symptoms. home
