Services Chiropractic Treatment
Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, and organ of your body. Your nervous system consists of your brain, spinal cord, and millions of nerves. The skull and your spinal cord protect your brain by the 24 moving bones of the spine. Many everyday activities can cause these spinal bones to lose their normal position or motion. The chiropractic approach to better health is to detect, reduce, and help prevent nervous system dysfunction.
Treatment for Disc Bulges/Disc Herniations
Dr. De Luca is trained in the technique known as Flexion Distraction. It involves the use of traction force to open the involved joint to relieve pressure on the disc and nerve. Our office has specially designed Flexion-Distraction tables, which are used to help alleviate pain associated with herniated and bulging discs.

Pregnancy Care
Many women experience back pain and sciatica during pregnancy due to increased weight, hormonal changes and in the last trimester, baby positioning. Chiropractic care is extremely safe and effective during pregnancy. At DeLuca, we have found that many of our patients who have received chiropractic care during pregnancy have had a much lower incidence of back labor. Our office uses a specially designed pillow for pregnant women, called the "Prego pillow," which provides maximum comfort during treatment.

Chiropractic For Children
As a child grows and becomes more active he or she experiences bumps, twists, and falls. By the age of 5, children have fallen approximately 3,000 times! Months or years after the initial injury, scoliosis or other spinal curvatures may develop. All children should be examined so future spinal problems can be prevented. DeLuca also helps children holistically heal, whether its out on the football field or in their own backyard.

Acupressure
Dr. DeLuca can diagnose and treat sciatica, sinus, and migraine headaches and other conditions through the use of Trigger Point Therapy. These conditions are sometimes caused by trigger points, which are made of fibrous tissue and toxins (waste from muscle). Trigger points are the areas within a muscle, which are tender to the touch when inflamed. Not all doctors of chiropractic are trained in Trigger Point Therapy. Dr. DeLuca has achieved dramatic results using this technique.
