Chiropractors are musculoskeletal specialists. They have the training to assess and treat problems related to the nerves, muscles, joints and connective tissues of the spine.
Chiropractic care combined with other treatment methods such as acupressure, massage, repetitive traction therapy, decompression, physical therapy, electric stimulation, K-Laser and cervical stabilization help further increase healing and long-term wellness.
Adjustments help the brain achieve better control of its faculties, improve function and reduce stress. Proper function will lead to increased healing and reduce future problems by allowing your nerves to function optimally.
Prescription pain killers are effective for providing immediate pain relief.
However, they only “cover up” a patient’s pain, and are not a long-term pain management solution. Chiropractic care for auto accident injuries can help short-term and long-term.
What if the paramedics tell you that you are not injured enough to go to the hospital, but you still don’t feel quite right? You do not need to be in a major accident to sustain serious damage to the musculoskeletal system. Injuries at speeds as slow as 5mph can still cause a cervical spine injury, causing a painful whiplash injury.
It can be subtle enough to change the natural movements of the spine, leading to future issues. Unfortunately, since a fender bender is considered a “minor” accident, accident victims typically delay seeking treatment – which can lead to a lifetime of health problems.
Prompt care makes a difference!

Dr. Lowry is an excellent chiropractor. I've been a patient of his for a few years now and feel so much better with the adjustments he's done on my back and spine. I recommend him to all my friends in the area!
I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Lowry. It was my first time being adjusted and I was a bit nervous. He talked me through everything he was doing and helped me understand there was nothing to be nervous about. I really appreciated it because he made the whole experience really smooth and enjoyable.

In TCM, the body is seen as a delicate balance of two opposing and inseparable forces: yin and yang. Yin represents the cold, slow, or passive principle, while yang represents the hot, excited, or active principle. According to TCM, health is achieved by maintaining the body in a “balanced state”; disease is due to an internal imbalance of yin and yang.
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical traction based treatment outcome for herniated or bulging discs in the neck and lower back. Anyone who has back, neck, arm or leg pain may be helped by spinal decompression therapy.
The number of sessions needed and your specific treatment plan will be determined by the doctor after your examination. In almost all cases, the treatments are completely painless. In fact, some patients fall asleep during the spinal decompression session.
In regard to clinical skills, Dr. Lowry has completed the Kennedy Decompression Technique course work and passed the qualifying examination to achieve the status of "Certified Practitioner" in spinal decompression therapy.
"Serial MRI of 20 patients treated with the decompression table shows in our study up to 90% reduction of subligamentous nucleus herniation in 10 of 14. Some rehydration occurs detected by T2 and proton density signal increase. Torn annulus repair is seen in all."

"Eighty-six percent of ruptured intervertebral disc (RID) patients achieved 'good' (50-89% improvement) to 'excellent' (90-100% improvement) results with decompression. Sciatica and back pain were relieved." "Of the facet arthrosis patients, 75% obtained 'good' to 'excellent' results with decompression."
A Powerful Ally. There’s no denying the power of bodywork. Regardless of the adjectives we assign to it (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic) or the reasons we seek it out (a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management), massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen.
Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress.
Furthermore, clients often report a sense of perspective and clarity after receiving a massage. The emotional balance bodywork provides can often be just as vital and valuable as the more tangible physical benefits.
- In response to massage, specific physiological and chemical changes cascade throughout the body, with profound effects.
