and Postural


We provide adjustment and over
50 forms of spinal Traction


Adjusting the spine toward a normal position is an integral part of your Total Health Spine and Nutrition experience. CBP® adjustments work with an emphasis on Postural Displacements to improve nervous system function. These adjustments utilize mirror-image principles to restore proper posture and enable our brain to learn what normal posture should feel like.

CBP® doctors use hand held adjusting Instruments and vibration tools to adjust each patient with the greatest accuracy. Massage, trigger-point therapy, stretching mobilization and postural analysis may accompany your adjustment at times throughout your treatment plan at Total Health Spine and Nutrition.

Adjustment performed on patient for neck pain.


Why is traction a necessary part of your care?

Traction is the only known conservative method used to restore normal curves and structure to the spine. Traction is simply a sustained force applied to the spine in a specific direction for the purpose of restoring normal spine position. These traction forces are necessary to reduce abnormal spinal curvatures, correct abnormal postures, and provide increased stability to damaged spines. The proper application of spinal traction in our office will ensure safe and effective of care.

Your spine exhibits many different properties. It will change if a traction force is applied, but may resume the original abnormal shape if traction is not applied long enough. However, if a traction force is applied for at least 10-15 minutes, a permanent change is made. That change will become more and more apparent improving posture, structure and function. Long-term research demonstrates the effectiveness of traction for as long as nine years!

Types of traction are specific to your diagnosis. Be patient. It can take time for the abnormal spine to become normal. Traction may cause some soreness but should not cause pain. Your consistency and effort will pay off in the end with a healthy spine and improved organ function. Many of our patients have experienced astounding results!

Spinal Decompression Therapy

At Total Health Spine and Nutrition in Lansing, MI, spinal decompression therapy is used as a non surgical treatment for chronic lower back pain caused by degenerative disc disease, herniated disc or other deformities of the disc. This treatment is also adopted for pain in the neck, arms or legs and involves reducing the load to the spine. This therapy has an FDA approved success rate of 85-90% for lower back and neck ailments!

Medical researches have supported decompression therapy as recent studies have proved it to be safer and more effective than spinal surgery. Spinal decompression therapy has become a major topic among chiropractic and physical therapists.

Sciatica, spondylosis, degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, soft-tissue spinal stenosis, and facet arthropathy are caused by compression of discs. Spinal decompression therapy offers the best treatment for these conditions.

A bulging disc can be returned to the normal condition using spinal decompression. Spinal decompression lengthens the bulging disc by placing traction. This activity helps the disc absorb the nutrients required to heal the disc. Thus the pain and discomfort produced by the bulging disc is eliminated.

Class IV K-Laser Therapy

The FDA cleared, next generation, Class IV laser, called "K-Laser™" is literally thousands of times more powerful than its predecessor the Class III laser, allowing it to penetrate far deeper, producing phenomenal results with fewer and faster treatments. While the Class III laser penetrated only a few millimeters, the Class IV Laser can penetrate over 4 inches deep into muscular skeletal tissue.

Treatments take just a few minutes, however the therapeutic effects continue to soothe and heal long after you've left the office.

The Class IV Laser is the first to use dual simultaneous infrared wavelengths. The Class IV laser's dual frequencies of continuous wave and modulation allow one laser beam to penetrate deeper to heal deep tissue, while the other aids in pain relief with amazing results. Now, both chronic and acute conditions can be addressed like never before!

Each treatment is quick, drug-free, non-surgical, non-addictive, side effect-free and completely pain-free.

Class IV Laser Therapy treatment increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen and nutrients to the damaged area resulting in reduced inflammation, swelling and muscle spasm, stiffness and pain. This Laser Therapy is proven to bio-stimulate tissue growth and repair.

The K-Laser™ energizes damaged cells to provide faster healing and increases circulation to the painful area, promoting a cascade of healing responses in your body, thereby decreasing inflammation and reducing or even eliminating your pain.

Power determines the amount of energy emitted from a laser and penetration depth:

Total Health Spine and Nutrition is the only facility in Lansing to offer the more powerful 15W K-Laser™ for more effective treatment of deep muscle or joint ailments.

Patients can rest assured that they are receiving the best possible care and will feel the difference our programs provide. And, Power Plate® can be used by virtually anyone including the elderly and disabled.

Power Plate® uses the principles of Acceleration Training to stimulate the body's natural response to vibration, while transmitting waves of energy at safe levels throughout the body activating muscle contractions and reflexes between 25 and 50 times per second.

The whole body vibration of the Power Plate® dampens pain and increases circulation at a tremendous rate to accelerate the effectiveness of the therapy performed at Total Health Spine and Nutrition. Unlike traditional physical therapy programs, which do not fare well for pain reduction, our Power Plate® Therapy significantly reduces pain!

Structure dictates function, and strengthening postural muscles is crucial to stabilize the body and preventing injuries or re-injuring damaged tissue. Once we determine that you are a candidate for the Power Plate® Therapy, we design a program just for you. Single joint rehabilitation, multi-joint rehabilitation, core strengthening, endurance & strength programs, pre-surgical therapy and post-surgical rehabilitation and bone mass improvement are just some of the programs that are created for our Power Plate® Therapy patients.

Benefits include immediate improvement in blood circulation and measurable outcomes such as increased muscle strength, flexibility, reduced pain and increase in human growth hormone resulting in faster injury and surgery recovery. It also allows people with conditions such as osteoporosis, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's, and arthritis to exercise while working within their physical limitations. The results are absolutely incredible!

How we have helped some of our patients


More energy to do things and feels great to not hurt...

"I had seen doctors about pain in my hips and legs in the past and they said my hips were good but they didn’t know what else to do. I was having pain in my neck by the end of the day, hip area, and lower back. I had therapy done on my left leg/hip and it made the pain worse. The doctor gave me cortisone shots which also didn’t help. Total Health took my x-rays first and then showed me upfront what was wrong and what I was doing that was causing my pain. They also explained what I could do to fix it!

My left leg/hip pain is gone and now I can lay on my left side. My neck pain is gone and I now have less headaches than when I started. I had burning in my right hip which is also gone. I now have more energy to do things and it feels great to be able to not hurt after doing lots of outside work. I am now able to do more with my grandkids and I am sleeping better with less headaches."

Able to do all these things with my family, I feel better about myself...

I wasn’t able to live my life because of my chronic debilitating pain and headaches. Thank you for what you’ve done for me. It’s definitely worth any cost. Now that I’m able to do all these things with my family, I feel better about myself, the time I’m spending with my kids, the investment I made into my health and future. I’m able to work more and participate in life more.

Noticed an improvement in my low back pain and in other areas that I didn't think were even related...

My initial problem was mainly low back pain. I decided to make an appointment because I was tired of constantly being in pain. I was initially concerned about the cost but being able to do monthly payments was helpful. During care I noticed an improvement in my low back pain and also in other areas that I didn't think were even related to chiropractic (headaches, heartburn, etc.) I love having a standing appointment at Total Health because I know I'll always be ahead of the curve if I do develop any issues.
