Dr. Monitto and the team at Monitto Chiropractic want to help you feel better and get moving by correcting pain and discomfort in your neck and back at the source. Chiropractic is an overall way of looking at the human body. It's based on the idea that the body is self-sustaining and self-healing. 

One of the key methods we utilize to help your body heal itself is Y-Strap decompression. Here’s what you need to know about the Y-Strap.

Y-Strap Adjustment Decompression Chiropractic | Monitto Chiropractic Western North Carolina

In western North Carolina, Dr. Monitto is your Y-Strap decompression expert. The Y-Strap adjustment is a full body adjustment designed to deliver a high velocity, low amplitude adjustment that generates a swift decompression within the vertebrae discs, generating a vacuum that allows nutrients to flow through those discs. It is rapid and can deliver almost immediate relief while being incredibly safe. While the Y-Strap is used to treat a variety of issues, it is often employed to help patients suffering from Forward Head Posture. 

Forward Head Posture describes the resting position of a person’s head when it is too far forward, leading to spinal issues and improper neck curvature. FHP can be caused by a number of everyday activities:

  • Leaning too far forward while working from your computer
  • Extended periods of time standing or sitting and looking down at your phone
  • Reading from a book in your lap
  • Leaning forward to speak in your laptop’s microphone during video conferencing
  • Sitting improperly while driving long distances
  • Sleeping with your head too high on the pillow

If you have pain in your neck or back, frequent headaches, fatigue, insomnia, or any number of other symptoms of FHP, you need to schedule a visit with your chiropractor.
