Dr. Leon & Shelly Gonyo of Stuart Family Chiropractic & Acupuncture Center wish to announce the introduction of the New (DTS) SPINAL DECOMPRESSION THERAPY SYSTEM of treatment.� We are thrilled to offer this treatment to our community because of the great results our patients can receive along with the many other chiropractic methods we offer in our office. Relief can even be in as little as five treatments, however being regular with your prescribed treatments is very important as an injured spinal disc needs time to heal.�

We want everyone to know that this state of the art equipment can be used to relieve peripheral radiation/sciatica and pain associated with Protruding Discs, Bulging Disc, Herniated Disc, Degenerative Disc Disease, Posterior Facet Syndrome, Acute Facet Problems, Radicular Pain, Spinal Root Impingement, Hypomobility, Degenerative Joint Disease, Spinal Stenosis and much, much more.

Research points to the benefits of SPINAL DECOMPRESSION THERAPY because it can distract joint surface, reduce protrusion of the nuclear discal material, stretch soft-tissue muscles and mobilize joints.� These effects provide many patients with pain relief from spinal dysfunction. ��The Mayo Clinic also estimates that a staggering 80% of Americans will experience back pain at some point in their life.� In fact, the cost of treating spinal dysfunction has grown to $50 billion annually.� As a result, the patients, clinicians and third party payers are now demanding less invasive, less expensive, non-pharmacological solutions to back pa

Finally, all body systems must work together in concert for optimum health so we also recommend nutritional and lifestyle advice as well as an at-home exercise program.� As you become more mobile and more able to return to your normal lifestyle, your increased activity is what your spine needs most.� If you are one of the 80% of Americans who currently suffer from back pain and are looking for an alternative to surgery, give us a call and let's see how we can help you.� Relief can be a phone call away 772-781-0193.�


We look forward to helping you not only relieving you of your pain but to increase your overall health and wellness.

Noticing More Joint Pain Lately? Blame It on Stress

What most everyone already knows is that the recent pandemic was stressful, and what a lot of people are noticing is more joint pain as of late. What most don't realize is that this stress could be connected to their joint pain.

Pandemic or not, stress can result in or contribute to joint pain. The good news is that chiropractic care can help with joint pain, and even help your body let go of stress.

How Stress Triggers Joint Pain

Back in the day, stress was a survival mechanism. Nowadays? Not so much. We're so caught up in having to work, pay bills and manage our household (including kids, pets, spouse, etc.) that all that stress energy doesn't have enough of an outlet to get expended. When were stressed, we can develop headaches, stomach issues, sleep issues and yes, even joint pain.

What's happening is that stress makes you tense up. Your body primes itself for fight or flight even though there isn't a saber-toothed tiger thats about to try and eat you. When theres no fight or flight to expel that energy (or a good workout regimen), stress remains in your body, alters your posture, and can physically manifest in many ways, including joint pain.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help with Joint Pain

Since every patient has unique healthcare needs, chiropractors will evaluate your health history and current state to determine the best course of action for your joint aches and pains.

A chiropractor's goal is most commonly multifacetedreduce stiffness and tension, return normal flexibility and function, and restore blood flow as well as reduce pain. By identifying and treating those problem areas, stiffness and limited joint motions can be restored and normal function and blood flow can be returned.

The better we feel the more we tend to move. The more we move, including the movement of those affected joints, the more blood and nutrients flow throughout our body and into our joints. As a result, the body can begin to relax, range of motion improves and pain can begin to dissipate. In fact, many patients report immediate pain relief.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help with Stress

Chiropractors aren't a replacement for counselors or psychotherapists. Instead, they strive to help your body physically release and reduce stress. Oftentimes, reducing and removing the physical effects of stress can help reduce and remove the stress itself.

So while there is a strong emotional side to stress, remember that there's a physical side as well, and your favorite chiropractor is here to help.
