SARASOTA, Fla., April 5, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Doctors at Sarasota Spine and Nerve Institute are celebrating 11 years of chiropractic care to patients in the Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch, Bradenton and beyond area. Originally located in Tampa and Brandon, the practice moved to Sarasota two years ago and now serves patients from Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch, Bradenton and surrounding communities. Dr. Tyson recommends chiropractic care as an alternative to surgery and painkillers for long-term cases of back pain, neck pain and several other conditions.
"We can hardly believe it has been 11 years since we started practicing," says Dr. Tyson. "The most rewarding thing for us has been helping patients who had tried everything else—everything conventional medicine had to offer for their back pain—finally achieve long-term pain relief through natural, drug-free chiropractic care. In fact, nationwide surveys show that patients get more successful back pain relief through chiropractic than any other form of health care."
Dr. Tyson says that the main difference between the conventional medical approach to back pain and the chiropractic approach is where treatment begins. He says that painkillers change the brains perception of pain without actually solving the root cause of the pain, but that chiropractic care focuses on relieving that underlying cause. He says that the most common cause of back pain is called a "subluxation" or a misalignment of the spinal vertebrae. He explains that when the vertebrae are not correctly aligned, they put pressure on the discs between them, and also press down on the nerves leaving the spinal cord for other parts of the body. When this happens, says Dr. Tyson, the pinched nerves cause pain and dysfunction in various areas of the body.
According to Dr. Tyson, there are several potential chiropractic and non-invasive treatment options to fix subluxations. He explains that chiropractic spinal adjustments use precise, gentle thrusts of pressure to realign vertebrae, which takes pressure off of discs and nerves. He says that his practice, which serves patients throughout Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch and Bradenton, also uses therapies such as cold laser therapy, spinal decompression and cryotherapy to complement spinal adjustments. He says each of these therapies work together to reduce pressure on nerves, promote correct posture and relieve pain.
"When we re-align the vertebrae and take pressure off of those nerves and intervertebral discs, the symptoms of pain go away naturally, without painkillers or surgery," says Dr. Tyson. "Most importantly, we can actually prevent future pain from occurring by helping patients maintain healthy posture and a healthy spine. Helping people achieve pain relief and a healthy, active lifestyle naturally is what makes coming to work an absolute joy for us."
