In his quick tip video, Dr. Baratta explains that spinal disk bulges and protrusions are relatively common. At Shadelands Chiropractic, Dr. Baratta uses a tool they like to call an impulse adjusting treatment. According to Dr. Baratta, this tool is very safe for the patient. It simply gets into the spinal disk areas where there is bulging and opens things up to provide space and relieve pain in the process. More specifically, it increases the spacing in between the vertebrae, unlocking the areas that have been locked up without further insulting the bulge or protrusion.
Dr. Baratta explains that this tool is great to help relieve pain found from disk bulges or protrusions in the lower spine, mid spine, and of course, in the neck.
