Spinal Correction is the First Step to Better Health
A healthy spine allows your body to function to its fullest potential. The spine provides the underlying structure for all of the muscles, bones, and joints in your body. Proper spinal alignment allows you to reach optimal range-of-motion and flexibility, helping your body avoid injuries, pain, and illness. Even more importantly, the spine protects and surrounds your nervous system. Nerves that branch off from the spinal cord go through the spinal vertebrae, communicating messages from the brain to cells, tissues, and organs. A misaligned or damaged spine interferes with your nervous system’s ability to communicate with the rest of your body, resulting in symptoms that can happen immediately when the spine is damaged, or occur slowly over time.
What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a holistic, drugless, hands-on approach to neuro-musculoskeletal issues of the body. A chiropractor is a health professional who focuses on diagnosis, treatment and prevention of spine disorders. As practitioners of an alternative care discipline, chiropractors focus on enhancing a patient’s health and well being without drugs or surgery. Treatment typically includes exercise, as well as health and lifestyle counseling.
Why Should I See a Chiropractor?
Beverly Hills Chiropractors undergo extensive training to become a doctor of chiropractic; the education time is equivalent to what medical doctors spend. Many patients see chiropractors specifically for back pain but chiropractors are trained to deal with virtually any painful ailment within the body. The main chiropractic technique involves manual therapy to adjust and restore motion to the spine, as well as other joints and soft tissues.
At Tannenbaum Chiropractic we also provide complete therapy by combining Chiropractic care with acupuncture and massage therapy for complete pain relief.
Is Chiropractic Safe?
A chiropractic spinal adjustment in Beverly Hills is widely recognized as one of the safest, drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of headache, and neck and back pain. Chiropractic adjustments have an excellent safety record. However, no health treatment is completely free of potential adverse effects. Even common over-the-counter medicines carry a risk. Most chiropractic patients experience immediate relief following a chiropractic adjustment, however, some may experience temporary pain, stiffness or slight swelling. Adverse effects associated with chiropractic adjustment are typically minor and short-lived.
What is decompression?
Patients who suffer from chronic pain associated with bulging, degenerating, or herniated discs find increased benefits from treatments immediately after using our decompression table.
Our decompression table achieves this by using computerized sensors to perform stretching actions at either the cervical or lumbar spine. This promotes the body’s healing abilities and is uniquely effective.
If left untreated, cervical and lower back pain can radiate to other extremities such as arms and legs. Other traditional traction methods including manual manipulation and spinal surgery often result in limited and temporary improvement.

Therapeutic and deep tissue massage treatments
Many of today’s health issues can benefit from massage therapy. The manipulation of soft tissues affects many of our bodily systems. When used in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments, the benefits of massage can be varied and extensive. As an accepted part of many physical rehabilitation programs, massage has been proven to be beneficial for many chronic conditions such as diabetes, immune suppression, sciatica, carpel tunnel, TMJ, sinus troubles, tension and stress reduction.
Structural Integration is a type of bodywork that focuses on the connective tissue, or fascia, of the body.
Injury, stress, work-related repetitive movements, and the effects of aging can cause fascia to lose its elasticity and become shorter, tighter, and more dense. Tightened fascia pulls our muscles and skeleton out of proper alignment and posture, which can cause pain, discomfort, and fatigue. Structural Integration works to lengthen, stretch, and soften this tissue to restore postural balance and ease of movement. A great compliment to chiropractic work.
What is Fascia
Fascia is the biological fabric that holds our body together. Think of it as a body wide web enveloping and connecting every organ, muscle, nerve, cell, and bone!
