The intersection of health findings and patient goals are critical when establishing the best treatment plan.

About Us, Paz Del Chiropractic


Dr. Pazdel has always been fascinated by how the human body produces responses to interventions from man. When he began his college career, he set out to study this phenomenon and to pursue a career in Genetic Engineering. While attending San Jose State University, Dr. Pazdel suffered a career altering injury to his low back.

Like so many individuals, Dr. Pazdel began what evolved into several months of traditional medical care and therapy with no relief. One of his family members suggested that he seek care from a Chiropractor in the area. Within a couple of visits to the Chiropractor, his low back pain had subsided significantly. Following the completion of his treatment plan, Dr. Pazdel was completely relieved of the pain.

Feeling energized by the experience, Dr. Pazdel began researching Chiropractic methods of heath treatment. Following undergraduate work at San Jose State University, he enrolled in Life Chiropractic College West and graduated in 1990. After becoming licensed by the state of California, Dr. Pazdel began practicing as a Doctor of Chiropractic in a very large practice in Yuba City, California. Following a transfer to Fairfield, California, he purchased the practice in 1995 where every day he continues to be energized by how the human body produces responses to interventions from man and how efficiently Chiropractic care works for the healing of so many disorders and injuries. Dr. Pazdel feels truly blessed to have a career that he loves and to touch the lives of so many patients in a positive way.

8 Exercises for Cervical Radiculopathy

Physical therapy for cervical radiculopathy can help manage pain, improve the range of motion in your neck, and strengthen your muscles. 

Cervical radiculopathy occurs when a spinal nerve in your neck becomes pinched or compressed (commonly referred to as a pinched nerve). This "pinched nerve" can cause pain and weakness, and make normal tasks like sitting, using your arms, or sleeping difficult to do. Most episodes of cervical radiculopathy last for three to six weeks.

In this article, we'll discuss how cervical radiculopathy is assessed and treated and what physical therapy exercises are commonly used.

Chiropractors vs. Physical Therapists: Differences and How to Choose

Both physical therapists and chiropractors can help you move better and feel better after an injury by using non-invasive methods to help treat pain. However, their services may differ in the scope of techniques and treatments. 

For example, physical therapists (PT) can assist you in slowly improving mobility after an injury through prescriptive exercises. A chiropractor can help with quick recovery from acute back or neck pain through a treatment called joint manipulation.

Understanding the differences between the two can help you decide whether to see a physical therapist or chiropractor for your particular injury. This article will discuss the similarities and differences between physical therapists and chiropractors, and help you determine how to choose the one that is right for you.

Chiropractic Treatment

Many people choose chiropractic treatment for a variety of conditions, most notably back pain. As with any type of healthcare, it's important to be your own advocate in your care and find a practitioner who you trust. Understanding the terminology used, and the reasoning behind these terms, allows you to ask educated questions as you discuss your symptoms.

While chiropractic adjustments or manipulations are a backbone of this care, many chiropractors now address factors such as diet which can contribute not only to your discomfort​ but your overall level of wellness.

Chiropractic Terms for Treating the Spine : Manipulation

Manipulation is a general term that includes—but is not limited to—adjustment. Other types of providers besides chiropractors also give manipulations.

According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, spinal manipulation also includes things like exercise, massage, and physical therapy. They say that it yields mild to moderate relief of low back pain and that it works as well as some conventional treatments, such as pain-relieving drugs.

Spinal manipulation can be divided into different grades of mobilizations.

  • Practitioners of several disciplines may be licensed to perform grade 1 to grade 4 mobilizations, depending on their training.
  • In general, only physical therapists, osteopathic physicians, and chiropractors are licensed to perform grade 5 mobilizations, a type of mobilization that is more forceful and direct than lower grades of spinal manipulation.​

Chiropractic Terms for Treating the Spine : Adjustment

The chiropractic adjustment is the hallmark of chiropractic treatment. It is the manual adjustment (done with the chiropractor's hands) which is used to realign joint subluxations.

An adjustment involves applying force to motion segments to bring them back into a centered alignment.

The idea behind adjustments is that by realigning the vertebrae, the nerves can transmit signals unimpeded, resulting in a positive effect on overall well-being.

Chiropractic Terms for Treating the Spine : Subluxation


Subluxation is the misalignment of adjacent spinal bones. Subluxations are the main pathology treated by chiropractors.  

It's important to note that the term subluxation means something very different to medical doctors than to chiropractors. To medical doctors, a subluxation refers to a partial dislocation of ​a vertebra. This is a serious condition, often due to trauma, that can result in a spinal cord injury and consequent paralysis and/or death. On an X-ray, a conventional subluxation is an obvious disconnect between the vertebrae.

The chiropractic version of a subluxation is much more subtle and refers to "misaligned" vertebrae. Rather than a disconnect between the vertebrae, subluxation in this context refers to position changes in the joints and soft tissues of the spine. This "misalignment of vertebrae" is thought to lead to pain and abnormal intervertebral joint motion.

This difference between the conventional medical definition of the term and the chiropractic use of the term may cause some people to dismiss these treatments. Since the primary focus of chiropractic treatment is often treating subluxations, this can lead to the disregard of the practice altogether unless this difference in terminology is understood.
