Spinal Alignment & Decompression:
As a licensed New Jersey doctor of chiropractic since 1981, Barrett provides core spinal alignment and chiropractic decompression, with hands on adjustment of the vertebral subluxation along with full spine traction to the entire spine.
Although similar in nature, the spinal joint pain based or “sickness care” model of chiropractic, treats neck, back, arm and leg pain and adheres to the strict medical necessity guidelines and regulations established for chiropractic/orthopedic insurance reimbursement. Where as the spinal alignment based or “wellness care” model of chiropractic, simply detects and removes nerve impingement caused by vertebral subluxation of the spine, which has been proven to interfere with normal body function and human potential. This form of chiropractic is considered by insurance to be preventive spinal maintenance and therefore not a covered expense.
Barrett has found that regardless of the treatment model, chiropractic has the advanced ability to ease pressure in the spine, helping to promote pain free nerve health in people of all ages, walks of life, personal circumstances, advanced levels of spinal decay and post surgically.
Even historical records in Egypt reveal that people in general were healthier when their backs were in alignment, rather than out of place. Ironically, Herodotus, famous for manipulating spines, was chastised by Aristotle with this statement; “He made old men young and thusly prolonged their lives too greatly.”
“Chiropractic is a philosophy, science and art. The philosophy of chiropractic is built upon the constructs of vitalism, holism, conservatism, naturalism and rationalism. It provides context for the application of science and art. Health is a state of optimal physical, emotional and social well-being. Central to the philosophy of chiropractic is the principle that life is intelligent. This innate intelligence strives to maintain a state of health through adaptation mechanisms. The nervous system is recognized as an avenue for these self-regulating processes. Interference with neurological function can impede these mechanisms, disrupt homeostatic balance and adversely impact health. Chiropractic posits that subluxation of the spinal column and other articulations can affect nervous system function and the expression of health, which may result in symptoms, infirmity and disease”
