We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing “state of the art” chiropractic and spinal decompression techniques. If you compare what we do at Warrensburg Wellness to what is done in the “average” chiropractic office, it is significantly different. We combine chiropractic, physical therapy, spinal decompression and soft tissue massage and manipulation to give you the best possible results that natural, conservative, non-invasive care can provide. 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. Alex BeDell has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.

Spinal healthcare and chiropractic goes far beyond “cracking” and “popping”. The alignment of the spine and joints is an important aspect in maintaining the health of the joint as we age, however “compression” and wear and tear of the joint is equally damaging to soft tissues around the spine that ultimately cause the joint to break down, causing physical damage to the cartilage that is so important in the structure of every joint in the human body. Cartilage is the shock absorbing, lubricated, movable padding in between the bones that allows fluid-like movement of the human body. Joint and spinal cartilage flexibility is what makes Chinese acrobats able to fit themselves into a bread box, and athletes to be exceptionally functional.

The “popping” sound heard during a chiropractic adjustment is actually a change in joint pressure and a change in volume, or amount of space in the joint. A nitrogen air-bubble is created inside the fluid of the joint, then the pressure change occurs and a popping noise is made. Much like pulling a suction cup off a flat surface.

Decompression of the cartilage allows for the natural health of the joint to be revitalized and hydrated. The drying of the joint is also a factor in joint break-down, degeneration and joint immobility. Spinal decompression maintains the space, hydration and nutritional health of the joint.
