At Vida Chiropractic, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Ocala office.
Chiropractic adjustment: Is a very safe, specific, controlled force applied to a joint to restore proper function and mobility. Accidents, falls, stress or overexertion can negatively impact your spine or other joints. These changes impact tissues, the nervous system and other areas of the body. Left unresolved, this can make you more susceptible to chronic problems. Chiropractic adjustments reduce pain, increase movement and improve performance.

Celluma Therapy: Celluma is unique and quite unlike any other low-level light therapy device available today. Based on NASA research, Celluma delivers blue, red and near-infrared light energy simultaneously to safely treat a wide variety of conditions. Each wavelength is absorbed by different molecules that act as a signaling mechanism for different cellular processes. For example, some reduce inflammation and some kill bacteria, while others enhance localized circulation.
Electric Muscle Stimulation: "E-stim" is used for:
- relaxation of muscle spasms.
- assistance in the management of chronic and intractable pain.
- assistance in the attempt to prevent disuse atrophy.
- post-traumatic and post-surgical acute pain modulation.
- increase of local blood circulation.
- muscle rehabilitation and re-education.
- immediate post-surgical stimulation of muscles.
Laser Therapy: A laser is a beam of light in which high energies can be concentrated. Laser light has unique physical properties, which other types of light do not have. These are coherence and monochromaticity. These are what makes laser light is so effective compared to other kinds of light in the field of pain reduction and healing. Laser treatment (also known as phototherapy and low level laser therapy) involves the application of low power coherent light to injuries and lesions to stimulate healing and reduce pain.
It is used to increase the speed, quality and strength of tissue repair, resolve inflammation and give pain relief. Low level laser technology has been found to offer superior healing and pain-relieving effects compared to other electrotherapeutic modalities such as ultrasound, especially in dealing with chronic problems and in the early stages of acute injuries. Low level laser technology is a complete system of treating muscle, tendon, ligament, connective tissue, bone, nerve, and dermal tissues in a non-invasive, drug-free modality.
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression: Spinal decompression traction therapy is a non-surgical traction therapy for the relief of back and leg pain or neck and arm pain. During this procedure, by cycling through distraction and relaxation phases and by proper positioning, a spinal disc can be isolated and placed under negative pressure, causing a vacuum effect within it. This process can increase disc hydration and open the intervertebral foramina.
Traction will create a relatively quick initial response. It is only applied by following specific doctor’s orders. Here are basic parameters that you may notice with prescribed traction. Typical frequency can be 3-5 times per week
