Chiropractic care is a type of complementary medicine that uses hands-on manipulation to heal the body. By focusing on the spine, as well as other parts of the body, Insight’s Neuro Chiropractic Center is an effective way to treat pain and help the body heal itself.
With over 50 years of clinical experience and the expertise of board certified and fellowship trained physicians in functional neurology and manipulation under anesthesia, patients get so much more than a quick treatment at Insight. Our doctors are committed to carefully diagnosing the cause of your pain and take the time to explain the best options to alleviate symptoms.
Back pain, neck pain, headaches, and numbness or tingling in the arms and legs are some of the most common reasons people seek chiropractic care. Much of this pain is caused by nervous and musculoskeletal system conditions that can be helped significantly with chiropractic treatments. Other causes of pain include poor nutrition, stress, lifestyle, and the effects of medications and serious disease, which can be addressed by chiropractic care.
Because Insight features a large multidisciplinary team, you have more options and dedicated physicians working for you than at other chiropractic offices. Our doctors work diligently to ensure our patients receive all the help they need.
Common procedures and services used to treat patients at Insight’s Neuro Chiropractic Center include:
Adjustments: A chiropractor uses his or her hands to manually manipulate the spine. Our doctors also use advanced low-force mechanical devices for spine manipulation.
Traction: A roller table system moves across each individual segment of the spine, massaging muscles and ligaments, pumping cerebrospinal fluid, and relieving disc pain.
Non-surgical Decompression: A specialized machine decreases interspinal pressure to alleviate bulging discs and radiating pain.
Neuromuscular Re-education: Exercises are used to increase spinal stability and mobility. This process also retrains muscles that may have been injured through targeted exercises.

MANIPULATION UNDER ANESTHESIA
Manipulation under anesthesia is a conservative treatment alternative for chronic pain patients offered by Dr. Denning, Dr. Rampersaud, and Dr. Sripada at Insight Comprehensive Therapy. Originating from the osteopathic profession, this procedure has been utilized for the treatment of spinal pain since the late 1930s.
Spinal manipulation under anesthesia is intended for patients that suffer from sometimes acute, but mostly chronic, musculoskeletal disorders. The procedure is extremely beneficial for patients who have muscle spasms accompanied with pain and joint range of motion loss – as well as individuals who have not responded to conservative care.
Patients who experience disc bulge or herniation, chronic sprain or strain, failed back surgery, and other musculoskeletal issues typically respond well to chiropractic manipulation, physical therapy, and exercise. However, this relief may only be temporary (e.g. months, weeks). Manipulation under anesthesia uses many of the same techniques utilized in a typical chiropractic office, but with the advantage of having the patient fully relaxed. Spinal manipulation under anesthesia typically takes approximately 20 minutes.
Manipulation Under Anesthesia Benefits
Noticeable pain relief
Decline in chronic muscle spasms
Relief from pain and radiating symptoms
Reduction of excessive scar tissue
If you feel you are an ideal candidate for this procedure, contact our conservative care specialists at Insight to learn more about manipulation under anesthesia and to schedule an appointment.
