Along with chiropractic manipulation, Dr. Abel also utilizes many different therapy modalities to help alleviate painful conditions. Nutritional health scans and exercise recommendations also make up part of the total treatment package at Abel Chiropractic Center. Dr. Abel is one of five offices in the state to offer the Erchonia low-level laser, and also one out of only 5 physicians in the state of Nebraska to be Brimhall Wellness Certified. The red low level laser helps with pain control, increases range of motion in joints and helps strengthen muscles. It is being used by many professional athletes and the American cycling team. They also have a Hydrotherapy massage table, a far infra-red sauna, and the EB-Pro, all machines designed and developed to restore the body's energy, balance and facilitate the body's natural detoxification process. The violet low level laser is for treatment to help alleviate bacterial and other resistant infections. It also is very helpful in treating acne and other associated skin conditions. If you or someone you know is suffering or your pain has not responded to previous treatment, please call our office at 289-5464 to schedule an appointment.

Remember, Your body is the best doctor and if a chiropractic physician removes the interferences to your body's natural function you will feel better, heal better and live longer. Thomas Edison stated, "The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease." Call 289-5464 today for an appointment or with any questions you may have. Please come visit us and let Dr. Abel and his trained staff, including Missy, and Sandy help you return to health.
