Best Chiropractors - 3 Years in a Row
Thank you to our patients, family, friends, and supporters of our practice for voting us "Best Chiropractors" in the 2016 Best of the Times Leader Readers Choice Awards. This is our third consecutive year winning this award. We are proud to continue to offer the best service and most complete and modern care in NEPA.
Medical School Appointment
Congratulations to Dr. Haydu who has accepted an appointment from The Commonwealth Medical College (TCMC) as a Clinical Assistant Professor. Dr. Haydu will teach a variety of clincal topics to medical students at both our clinic and at the TCMC campus in Scranton. He joins a very exclusive group of chiropractors who teach at U.S. medical schools.
Certified - Functional Movement Systems
Dr. Haydu has been certified in the use of the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) and the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) by Functional Movement Systems. The FMS and SFMA is a body movement screen that allows the doctor to assess painful conditions of the spine and extremities. Based on the results of the screen, the doctors can provide a more accurate diagnosis, effective treatment, and/or prescription for corrective exercise. This examination is widely used in the NFL, NHL, and many other professional and collegiate sports programs to evaluate athletes to prevent potential injuries. We are currently the only facility in NEPA to offer these examinations. Call us today to setup your FMS or SFMA screens for yourself or your sports team.
Chiropractic and Chronic Low Back Pain
New research published in Spine has revealed that receiving monthly maintenance chiropractic care for chronic low back pain results in significantly greater improvements in pain levels and disability. The clinical journal Spine is one of the premiere research publications for the study of the human spine and it's associated conditions. The study examined the effects of once a month maintenance visits, following an exacerbation of a chronic complaint, using chiropractic manipulation to the low back. Patients reported decreased pain and disability scores on outcome surveys done during and after the one year study period. In addition to decreased pain levels, the patients in the treatment maintenance group also had increased and sustained increases in range of motion in their spines. This study joins an increasing body of evidence recommending regular spinal check ups with chiropractic care, especially for the chronic back pain sufferer.
