Dr. Aaron Barnes of Barnes Chiropractic in Elkhart, IN, is the chiropractor of choice for many in the community. For many years, he has worked with patients of all ages, including children, active young adults, and seniors. Dr. Barnes offers a full range of chiropractic services, such as chiropractic adjustments, spinal decompression, and sports injury treatment.
Chiropractic adjustments can treat various conditions, including lower back pain, neck pain, headaches, and sciatica. Adjustments are also used to improve posture and reduce muscle tension. The doctor makes adjustments while you lie prone on the chiropractic table with your weight supported by the table.
Dr. Barnes will restore the alignment of the vertebrae in the spine by putting gentle pressure on specific parts of the spine. When the vertebrae are misaligned, this can irritate nerves and muscles, leading to pain and decreased range of motion. Dr. Barnes can reduce this irritation by manipulating the spine and restoring proper alignment.
Spinal decompression performed by Dr. Barnes is a non-invasive technique that uses a specialized device to stretch the spine gently. The goal is to relieve pressure on the spine. This pressure relief reduces pain and improves mobility.
The procedure begins with a patient lying on their back on the decompression table. Dr. Barnes then adjusts the table according to the patient's specific needs. The table is slowly stretched, applying a gentle yet constant pull to the spine. This pull creates a vacuum effect that helps relieve pressure on the discs between the vertebrae.
The benefits of spinal decompression include relief from neck, mid-back, and lower back pain. You may experience improved posture, increased mobility, and enhanced disc health. In addition, decompression can help reduce pinched nerves, improve blood circulation, and reduce inflammation, and it encourages the release of endorphins, which are the body's natural pain-relievers.

Dr. Barnes is an expert in the field of sports injury treatment. Chiropractic sports injury treatment can provide relief and improved functioning for athletes of all ages and skill levels.
When treating a sports injury, Dr. Barnes typically begins by conducting a thorough physical exam and reviewing the injury. This helps him determine the cause of the injury and the best plan of action for treatment.
Once the issue is identified, Dr. Barnes may use various techniques to help reduce pain and improve mobility. These techniques include manual adjustments, soft tissue manipulation, and recommending specific exercises to help strengthen the area around the injury.
