Dr. Lukert Earns Strength and Conditioning Specialist Certification

Now Offering Spinal Decompression Therapy
August 2008 — More than 14 million office visits for back pain are reported annually. It’s the second most frequent reason that people visit their doctors. Treatment options usually include rest, pain medications, and physical therapy. Chronic sufferers looking for help often hear there are only two real paths…live with the pain or undergo surgery.
Lukert Chiropractic & Wellness now offers a new alternative for pain. Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-invasive procedure which offers not only pain relief, but also long-term results for many of the typical causes of back pain. Spinal Decompression Therapy uses FDA-cleared equipment, manufactured by the world’s leading manufacturer of therapeutic rehabilitative equipment. Through proper positioning, protocol and technique, the distractive forces of this system create decompression in the discs. The results of which include imbibing of the discs with blood and vital nutrients, as well as a likely reduction in pain.
Dr. Brett Lukert, DC, said, “This approach safely and comfortably treats the low back (lumbar) or neck (cervical) pain…without surgery. Back pain sufferers with bulging, herniated discs, sciatica (pain shooting down a person’s legs), and other degenerative disc conditions have an alternative to surgery."
