• Dr. Jeff Ingleby, a Farragut chiropractor, is offering a new non-surgical technique for treating chronic back and neck pain, along with symptoms asscociated with carpel tunnell syndrome. Ingleby, whose practice is located at 10826 Kingston Pike is now offering the DTS treatment method to new and existing patients. The technique, commonly known as spinal decompression, is a fast growing alternative to back surgery. According to Ingleby, the treatment, which relieves chronic pain associated with disc problems and pinched nerves, is widely used in the U.S. and has a 70 percent success rate according to recent clinical studies. The DTS treatment method is said to be the safest and most cost-effective way to manage and eliminate chronic pain. If you are one of more that 100 million people who suffer from chronic back or neck pain, contact Dr. Ingleby at 675-5050 and set up a free consultation to determine if spinal decompression therapy will work for you.
