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.
50 FORMS OF SPINAL TRACTION
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.

How we have helped some of our patients
Chiropractic care has been life changing!
I had tried everything I could think of to get rid of excruciating headaches: pain killers, migraine med's, physical therapy and my instinct was that chiropractic care could really help, but was advised by my physician not to seek chiropractic care. (Now I wish I would have years ago!) Chiropractic care has been life changing! I noticed a difference in the way I felt almost immediately. I have not had a severe headache since starting chiropractic care and the couple of headaches I have had have been so much more mild and disappear after I receive an adjustment. I sleep better, too. I can't say enough good things about how much Dr. Chris has helped me!
I no longer have a tight neck or upper back.
I’ve been seeing Chiropractors for years, but never on a routine basis. I believe in alternative medicine and a co-worker suggested I go to THC.
I had neck pain, tight upper back & shoulders, request colds and fatigue. The other Chiropractors I visited on gave me temporary results. With THC, you get down to the root of the issues – the Spine, which controls the entire body.
I was diagnosed as having gall stones and with treatment and vitamins/supplements, I have not had issues in over a month. I really DO need by gallbladder when a conventional doctor said I didn’t.
I no longer have a tight neck or upper back. I feel more realized without the constant pain. I also have better posture and have a better range of motion turning my head. I am more aware of how I am sitting, how long I have been sitting and taking steps to correct on my own.
Having no jaw pain or headaches increases the quality of my day to day activities
I tried chiropractic care because of frequent low back pain, headaches and jaw pain. I had previously tried lots of Advil, wisdom teeth removal and alternating ice and heat without much relief. Since beginning chiropractic care I have much less back pain and my jaw pain and headaches are mostly gone. Having no jaw pain or headaches increases the quality of of my day to day activities and makes going to school and work much easier.
