Spinal Adjustments with the Hill Laboratories Flexion Distraction Adjusting Table

The goal of chiropractic adjustments, also known as spinal manipulation, is to restore or enhance joint function, with the general goals of resolving joint inflammation and reducing pain in the low back, mid-back, and neck. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to serious trauma from a car accident.

To make this process easier, Dr. Barry Heffron of Dr. B Well Chiropractic Health and Wellness would like to introduce patients to the brand new Hill Laboratories Flexion Distraction Adjusting (AFT) Table. Low back pain, neck pain, and headaches are the most common issues for which people seek chiropractic adjustments. Fortunately, the Hill Automatic Flexion Table is adaptable and allows Dr. Barry Heffron to treat your condition more precisely. By adding up to four manual drops, including cervical drop, thoracic drop, lumbar drop and a pelvic drop, Dr. Barry Heffron can reduce spinal nerve stress (aka. Subluxation) in areas in which other distraction tables are unable.

If you have questions regarding the brand new Hill Laboratories Distraction Adjusting Table, please give us a call. To learn about services we provide at our practice, visit for more information.

What’s a Hatband Headache?
Hatband headaches are a kind of tension headache. They’re characterized by distinctive bands of pain running around the head, similar to a hatband. As a general rule of thumb, patients typically treat such headaches at home, as the pain is relatively easy to manage and mild. Recurring headaches of this kind might be a cause of concern; if you suffer severe hatband headaches, consult Dr. Heffron to rule out any underlying medical conditions. At Dr. B Well’s Chiropractic Health and Wellness center in Rockville Centre, NY, we’re committed to assisting you in achieving your wellness goals, combining expertise and skill spanning the whole chiropractic wellness spectrum.

What causes the pain of a hatband headache?
The hatband headache pain is caused by muscle tension that surrounds the head. As the muscles tighten, they place pressure on the skull, and lead to a generalized pain. Usually, the pain isn’t excruciating, yet it may be irritating and distracting. Taking ibuprofen or aspirin generally offers relief from hatband headaches, though some also enjoy lying in a dark room or icing their heads to manage the discomfort.

Treatment for hatband headaches
As you get a hatband headache, consume pain relief medicine. There isn’t any reason to continually endure the pain, and discomfort may be more difficult on your body than any medicine might be. Constant tension headaches are a sign for a need to be medically evaluated or make a change in lifestyle to decrease the stress and tension that’s producing these headaches. In some instances, the doctor also may prescribe various pain relief drugs to treat the hatband headaches, or he might order medical tests to check if the headaches are produced by a neurological problem.

Custom Foot Orthotics

The alignment of your entire body starts from the ground up. For proper support and healthy posture, at Dr. B. Well Chiropractic Health and Wellness, Dr. Barry Heffron suggests custom foot orthotics.

Orthotics are insoles that are able to be placed inside almost any shoe. We create them custom so that they support your feet in just the way you need it. They are a perfect fit instead of “one-size fits all” types of orthotics. They offer support where needed and relieve pressure and pain in other areas. To create custom orthotics, we use a computer to scan an exact image of your feet. The image is taken when you are standing on your feet so that the orthotics can provide the right support for when you are actually stepping or standing. Custom orthotics are long-lasting and are also easily switched between several types of shoes. Whether you need them for work, casual wear, boots, or sneakers, custom orthotics can be made for you.

Wearing poor shoes can eventually affect the alignment of your whole body. A foot that is poorly supported will affect the alignment of the ankles, which will affect the knees, which will travel to the hips, then the back, and eventually the neck. Since our body systems are all linked to the spine, poor alignment can truly begin to affect your total wellness. Custom orthotics make sure that each step is supported in your unique way. Custom orthotics can realign your body, promote good health, and even relieve pain.

If you are experiencing foot pain or your shoes do not offer you enough support, schedule an appointment with Dr. B. Well Chiropractic Health and Wellness to talk about custom foot orthotics.
