Spinal Stenosis and Disc Center, Inc. uses advanced technology for non-surgical spinal decompression, or spinal traction, to reduce neck discomfort.
Massage therapy and myofascial release techniques use soft tissue manipulation to stimulate blood flow and relieve muscle tension, nerve pain, and chronic neck discomfort.
Dr. Le or Dr. Morris shows you strength and flexibility exercises that strengthen tissues in your neck and back, increase range of motion, reduce pain, and prevent re-injury.
