Message from Dr. Faria

Living life and loving it. It’s unfortunate, but millions of Americans will suffer from back pain at some time in their lives. If that’s happening to you then your lifestyle is not what it should or could be. Perhaps your back condition is preventing you from doing simple things like putting on your shoes, holding your child or being a part of enjoyable family activities. Maybe it gets in the way of your work, your golf game, and your fitness activities. Maybe it even stops you from climbing a mountain-if that’s your inclination. Your concern is my concern. My goal is to make you better without surgery, without injections and without drugs. Spinal Decompression Therapy in combination with the specific protocols of the Faria Method is a revolutionary treatment that is safe and effective. FDA cleared equipment is used in treating conditions and injuries such as: herniated and bulging discs, facet syndromes, degenerative joint disease and sciatica. Not everyone is a candidate for Lumbar or Cervical Decompression Therapy, but those who do qualify will have a good chance to return to work sooner and significantly improve their lifestyle. I encourage you to learn more about this breakthrough therapy. If you want to explore whether this treatment can work for you, please call us for an assessment or request our Free Report.
