Increasing Your Quality of Life By Reducing Your Pain

Spinal Decompression Specialist

Mike Howell DC specializes in non-surgical spinal decompression, a traction-type therapy that relieves and eliminates low back, leg, neck and arm pain. Spinal Decompression Therapy has a high success rate for decreasing and eliminating pain associated with herniated or bulging discs, sciatica, and carpal tunnel syndrome. Other advantages of the Spinal Decompression Triton DTS Machine are that no drugs are prescribed, it is non- surgical and more affordable.


A herniated disc, also known as a “slipped disc,” or a “ruptured disc,” is caused by the rupture of the gel-like substance at the core of the vertebrae bones. Common symptoms are radiating back pain down the leg, numbness, weakness & problems walking or balancing.


Sciatica is characterized by severe pain that can radiate from pressure on the sciatic nerve. The more severe symptoms of sciatica include actual nerve damage, the inability to walk, stand, or balance, and even loss of bowel and bladder control.


Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition that causes pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand, wrist, and forearm. Key symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome are hand numbness, sensation of pins and needles, hand pain at night, hand or wrist weakness.


General Chiropractic Care

The most common causes of low back pain are excessive computer use, long-distance driving, and frequent cell phone use. Chiropractic adjustments can alleviate pain caused by these activities. Our office provides personalized care and holistic treatment plans to address your specific needs.


Do you experience low back pain at the end of a long workday?

Common causes are hunching your back, sitting for long periods of time, improper chair height, sitting on uneven surfaces, repetitive movements, and straining your wrist.


Do you ever have pain in your right hip when you get out of your car?

This is primarily caused by long commutes, improper seat placement and pressing down on the foot pedals resulting in tightness of the hip flexor & an uneve hip.


Do you ever have sharp pain in your upper back before you go to bed?

Frequent cell phone use leads to rounded shoulder muscles, tight and aching chest muscles, weak upper back muscles, and shooting neck pain.
