Dr. Waldrop is certified in spinal manipulation through the American Academy of Spinal Manipulation. He was a senior instructor at the Spinal Manipulation Institution and enjoyed teaching physical therapists and medical doctors across the U.S. how to perform this specialized treatment technique. Dr. Waldrop uses modified-osteopathic, momentum-induced techniques when manipulating the spine to help comfort the patient and gets the results. The spine is not locked out prior manipulation, which creates a relaxed joint that moves more easily and with less discomfort.
We specialize in treating patients that suffer from dizziness caused by vertigo- a condition of the inner ear that causes a sensation of spinning. Prior to treatment, we thoroughly evaluate each patient to determine if you are truly experiencing vertigo. We will then develop a specialized treatment plan which includes a variety of positioning techniques of the head and body to alleviate your symptoms. Patients often respond very well to the first treatment and are usually discharged after 1-3 visits!
