The Stance Spine Clinic


Integrated Pain and Spine Clinic has the unique capability to provide traditional Manual Medicine treatments like, OMT manipulative therapy, OMT Spine Analysis, and other diagnostic and therapeutic technologies to help patient suffering from chronic spine and other musculoskeletal pain.Throughout the world, chronic pain patients are being treated by many disciplines. For example, the patient may simultaneously be treated by not only a medical physician but also a physical therapist, alternative medicine practitioner, and clinical psychologist. Some settings are fortunate enough to have many disciplines under one roof, but that’s not possible to have a dedicated pain management team specialized in multiple discipline to help patients recover faster. Regardless of whether the patient is treated at a single or multiple site, it is important to know the strengths and capabilities of each profession and discipline.

Chronic pain, one of the most common reasons adults seek medical care, has been linked to restrictions in mobility and daily activities, dependence on opioids, anxiety and depression, and poor perceived health or reduced quality of life. As per report claims, manual osteopathy should focus on treating the pattern of the musculosketal disease which means it is of great importance to actually understand the actual trigger which is causing pain at one particular point. If the pain is present for more than 3 months and non-responsive to normal treatments like quick adjustments, pain medicines, or exercises alone, OMT treatments should be able to offer solution to help reduce the pain and discomfort.


Manual Treatment is the “hands-on” use of force in response to somatic dysfunction in the body. This is a non-drug, non-surgical, and non-invasive approach to alternative medicine that promotes natural healing by correcting the source of pain and not the site of the pain. The goal of manual medicine is to correct the biomechanical component of dysfunction in the body causing musculoskeletal and other health issues related to improper function of the body.

Manual Medicine principles are based on biomechanical, functional, anatomical correction, and restoration of function of the body. The purpose of manual medicine is to correct, remove or improve somatic dysfunction thereby allowing for the body’s self-healing, self-regulating (i.e., homeostatic) mechanisms to become more effective at restoring health. This is an example of the application of the structure-function principle.

Integrated Pain and Spine Clinic offers a comprehensive balance of traditional manual medicine and research-based latest technology which comprises evaluation, assessment, and treatment of the common, complex, and recurring spine and musculoskeletal conditions without the use of drug and surgical procedures.

As many people are resorting to the natural means of healing without the use of unnecessary dependence on medicines, and other drug-based treatments for the longer period, manual medicine backed by years of research and quality care offers the second-best treatment option after surgery when it comes down in making structural corrections, reducing nerve interferences, and correcting the alignment of the spine and joints, correction of the imbalances, and ultimately causing anatomical and functional changes which help to treat the source of pain rather than just managing pain.The basics of manual treatments at our Spine and Pain Clinic is primarily based on the best of the Manual Osteopathic Approach, Chiropractic Approach, and Manual Therapy

At our Spine and Pain Clinic, we can offer a manual osteopathic approach along with integrated impulse chiropractic Sense Technology which is a unique combination of manual and impulse technology to help with your pain. Consultations at our clinic are available to figure out the best possible alternative treatments which can help you faster in the degenerative spine and joint problems.

Central to the osteopathic concept is that if the structure of the body has been impaired then it is unable to function efficiently. The osteopath will assess the structure of the body by examining areas such as posture and mobility and will use appropriate techniques in order to improve the function. Osteopathic treatment is aimed at improving the mechanics of the body which automatically influences areas such as blood and nerve supply as well as activity of the internal organs. It is because of this that osteopathy, as well as treating the more obvious headaches, joint problems, sports injuries, and postural strains, can also be used in the treatment of less obvious conditions such as asthma, digestive disorders, menstrual problems, and chronic fatigue syndrome. Speak with your doctor before seeking treatment, especially if you are pregnant. Osteopathic manual practitioners develop a treatment plan based on each patient’s specific needs.

Osteopathy mostly offers help with issues related to joints, bones, and muscles. Manual Osteopathy at our Spine and Pain clinic offers the most efficient treatment plan which is suited for the younger to the older population. The treatments range from soft tissue treatments to manipulative medicine. This holistic approach has helped patients across all age groups who prefer the alternative medicine approach for recovery.

Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) or Manipulation thrust technique or HVLA (High-Velocity Low Amplitude) is a form of manual adjustment that gives a “crack or a pop” sound once the treatment is given to open up a locked joint causing pain. HVLA is a very ancient technique referred to as Bone Setting days practiced traditionally by physicians, and over years with scientific research, it has become one of the forms of manual medicine, best suited when practiced along with multiple manual treatments which form the fundamentals of integrated spine treatments at OUR SPINE CLINIC. Osteopathy offers a diverse set of treatment options and it’s very important to choose the correct treatment combination with exercises and rehabilitation to get a great clinical outcome. Some of the very popular treatments offered under Osteopathy Manual Treatment (OMT) are spine and joint manipulations or adjustments, musculoskeletal disorders. like soft tissue technique, muscle energy technique, ligamentous strain, and counterstain, etc., to relieve the pain get you moving again, and reduces recurrences and unnecessary maintenance visits.


The osteopathic Manual Medicine approach aims to treat the body as a whole, looking at the structure of the body and the interdependence throughout the body. Through this approach, a Manual Osteopath will be able to treat a broader range of problems. The osteopathic approach will utilize a wider range of techniques to manipulate the body and will incorporate soft tissue and muscle manipulation in their approach to correct structural problems like anatomical restrictions in the joint or the surrounding joints in the spine or extremities.


This is one of the alternative medicine practices which promotes a “non-drug and non-surgical” treatment by reducing interference on the nervous system and therefore “promote healing.” This healthcare system believes in the theory that the structure of the body, mainly the spine, is essential for the general functioning of the body. It is aimed at correcting the spine alignment, alleviating pain, and promote healing of the entire body through spinal adjustments/manipulation. The term ‘adjustment’ implies treatment of the ‘spinal subluxation complex’ with the intent to manage or prevent conditions known or unknown in any system of the body. Most chiropractors, to varying degrees, subscribe to the theory of the ‘spinal subluxation complex, which is a concept unique to chiropractors as compared to other conventional medical and manual medicine practitioners. This “subluxation theory “asserts that the subluxation of a vertebra actively alters neurological function, which, if left untreated, will lead to disorders and disease of the various organ systems.


Chiropractic manipulation and treatment of the spine is a scientific evidence-based approach of manual medicine without the use of drugs, invasive procedures, or surgical interventions typically helps to reduce pain in the spine and other joints and improve

Chiropractic Spinal manipulation
One of the most common and well-known therapeutic procedures performed by chiropractors is spinal manipulation The purpose of spinal manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become restricted in their movement as a result of a tissue injury.

The chiropractic approach is a direct technique for pain relief and improves function by manipulation of the joints which is dysfunctional and causing pain. The aim is to help with symptoms such as a pinched nerve, or other issues with the nervous system. They aim to help with specific treatments and like spinal manipulations based on an alignment of the spine to treat the spinal subluxations, which causes pain by causing interference in the spinal nerve. Chiropractors tend to be specifically focused on treating muscle and joint pains, with a focus on adjustments to the vertebrae of the spine.


The benefits of a proper manual medicine approach can be many-fold including fewer unnecessary imaging studies; decreased use of prescription pain medications; decreased time in rehabilitation; decreased need for referrals; and a decrease indirect costs associated with pain. Our spine and pain clinic emphasis on the musculoskeletal system, combined with a mind-body approach to patient care, leads to an expanded differential diagnosis that includes somatic dysfunction with an integrated manual osteopathy and chiropractic approach. This expanded understanding of the disease, combined with the expertise of pain physician doctors can help integrate seemingly unrelated symptomatology and develop a holistic plan to achieve health in their patients. Because chronic pain patients are often very difficult to treat successfully, it would be to their advantage to have an integrated component in their assessment and treatment. Manual Medicine and Integrated Medicine approach help patients lower their medication requirements, keeps them away from procedures and hopefully keeps them away from surgery,” Dr. Welches says. “Procedures and surgery are great when it’s the right thing for the patient, but osteopathic manipulation is simpler pain management.”
