The computerized traction head on the decompression table or machine is the key to the therapy’s effectiveness. The preprogrammed patterns for ramping up and down the amount of axial distraction eliminate muscle guarding and permit decompression to occur at the disc level. This creates a negative pressure within the disc, allowing the protruded or herniated portion to be pulled back within the normal confines of the disc, which permits healing to occur.
Your specific treatment plan will be determined by the doctor after your examination. Based on research and my clinical experience, the best results are achieved with 20 sessions over a six-week period. To reduce inflammation and assist the healing process, supporting structures sometimes are treated with passive therapies (cold laser therapy/muscle stimulation/diathermy), chiropractic adjustments (when indicated) and/or active rehabilitation in order to strengthen the spinal musculature.
Dr. Karen is the best chiropractor that I have seen in all my years. She adjusts my back without pain and gets it right. She and Rhonda are special people who treat you like a friend and are always helpful. I love their water massage beds after the adjustments as well.

I recommend Gadsden Family Chiropractor to anyone having issues. Working retail for 24 years has caused me to have some issues with my back. But now with their help I can bend and squat with ease. Thank you Dr. Karen and Rhonda. Great job.????
I have been a patient of Dr. Karen Tortoriello for over 10 years. She excels in the care she gives her patients. Dr. Karen is a wonderful person and I consider her my friend. That doesn't happen very often between a doctor and patient and I will forever be grateful to Dr. Karen for the chiropractic care I receive at her office. I recommend Dr. Karen to anyone in our area that's in need of chiropractic care. She is the best in her field of expertise.
I highly recommend Dr. Karen and Ms. Rhonda. To all my teacher friends or to anyone in need of a chiropractor, you need to go see them! They have me feeling so much better and with decompression treatments, life is now tolerable with a bad disc.
I have been going here for years. Best by far. Great Dr and friendly staff. 5 star
