Lumbar Cervical Decompression
More than 65 million Americans suffer from back pain, chronic headaches, knee injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, hip pain, whiplash, excess stress and many other conditions that make their life harder. One of the most common methods for treatment for this pain and discomfort is through the use of drugs. Drugs offer an immediate relief from the discomfort, but it is only a mask and will lead to other problems for the patient down the road. Surgery is another common procedure and many times does not help but can make the problem worsen in time.
Lumbar Cervical Decompression offers a real treatment for the pain by locating the actual source of the problem, a compressed spinal column that is decreasing the blood supply to your muscle tissue. This procedure will expand your discs using the decompressing techniques through controlled stretching. The body is gently manipulated through acupressure points to help correct the posture and relive you from the pain.
Weight Loss and Nutrition
Millions of Americans suffer from weigh gain, but not many realize that chiropractic treatment can help. If you are carrying around a few extra pounds around your midsection, hips, and buttocks or anywhere else you don’t want it, let Dr. Ridgeway help you.
Most diets don’t work and even when they do, they don’t last. We go directly after the source of your weight gain instead of having you just cut calories and exercise more. Many times your weight gain can be a result of a hormone imbalance. Using a body restoration technique that utilizes nutritional response testing we can evaluate your hormonal balance and make the necessary adjustments to get you into a healthier and happier body.
We of course will work with you on creating a healthier lifestyle, what you eat and the exercise you get. Our main goal is to improve your overall health of your endocrine system so that the weight loss you experience will be long term.

Physical Therapy and Specialized Massage
A large variety of pain can be dealt with by simple manipulation of the arms, legs or spine. This manipulation can bring on a quick relief from the discomfort you are feeling and help you get back into your life. Through physical therapy and specialized massage you can begin feeling better after just one treatment.
All of our massage therapists are certified and offer years of experience and specialized training.
Massage therapy can offer instant pain relief in addition to aiding the healing process through your chiropractic treatments. Massage helps to quicken the healing process through stress relief, by melting tension away and by relieving symptoms of pain or discomfort. This process helps with the physical, mental and emotional aspects of the patient. Massage helps to improve your body’s circulation as well as lymphatic drainage to induce a better flow of nutrients through your body as well as a quicker release of any toxins. Flexibility and range of motion in the joints will improve as the inflammation is reduced and the muscle tone is improved.
Regular massage treatments help us to feel better mentally, physically as well as emotionally!

Get Started on The Life You Deserve Today!
The main goal for chiropractic care is to offer you optimal health. Through chiropractic treatment your nervous system function is enhanced and since your nervous system controls every cell, tissue and organ in your body you want it working at optimal levels. Over time you will experience stressors in your life, whether they are emotional, chemical or physical which will disrupt your nervous system and cause misalignment of your vertebrae. When we experience such “subluxations” our bodies cannot heal or adapt the way we need them to for optimal health.
Many people think that if they are not in any pain that they are fine. The truth is that only about 10% of the nervous system will perceive pain, so this means that many times when pain does occur it is the last indicator that something more serious is going on with your health. Good health requires good function and when our nervous systems are not functioning as they should it leaves a risk for serious health implications.
Corrective chiropractic care helps to provide a holistic healing for your body without the use of drugs or the need for surgery. All of the techniques we use at the Santa Rosa Chiropractic Associates are safe enough that even pregnant women, children, infants, the elderly and even those with already significant health challenges can undergo treatment. Chiropractic care is very popular with Olympic athletes to help improve performance as well as offer prevention from illness and even provide faster recovery time from sports related injuries.
