When the joints in your body fail to move correctly, a phenomenon known as fixation occurs. When fixation occurs our muscles are not able to function properly and the nerves that supply these muscles become inhibited. When muscles and nerves fail to work properly, we recognize pain. When we experience pain due to a loss of optimal muscle and nerve function, inflammation, nerve damage, and organ dysfunction can occur, which may lead to disease.
Our chiropractors can improve your health and wellness by restoring proper motion of joints within your body, which will disrupt pain, decrease muscle spasm, and restore proper nerve function. This can be done by implementing a light force into a fixated joint, allowing for improved muscle function, increased mobility and improved positional awareness.

The benefits of massage therapy include increased blood circulation, reduced swelling, muscle relaxation, reduction of muscle pain and spasm, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
Active Release/Myofascial Release

G5 Vibration Therapy
G5 Vibration therapy is a great tool for our chiropractors to utilize prior to an adjustment. The high rate of vibration coupled with massage allows for broad muscle relaxation, which allows for less guarding during an adjustment.

Commonly used for management of Low Back and Neck Pain related to Disc and Joint Pathology. SpineMed is the Gold Standard of Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy, which may significantly improve discomfort and reduce symptoms of acute and chronic low back and neck pain patterns.

For overall health and wellnesses it is important to undersgtand the roles vitamins and minerals play in the human body. Known as micronutrients, these enzymes and organics are essential for maintaining cellular function and energy production that our body needs. As we continue to process our food, the availability of these important nutrients become less and less available requiring a need for supplementation.
At Connecticut Back and Wellness, we utiilize micronutrient supplementation from whole food, reputable sources, guaranteeing the best quality control for our patients. Generic vitamins and minerals are often chemically produced and supply you with forms of nutrients your body cannot digest or transform for use. That is why we utilize certified organic, whole food products for our patients in order to guarantee maximum benefit for our patients.
