Services & Techniques

At Boston Scoliosis Specialists, we take great pride in providing the a high level of care for and specific treatment for each scoliosis patient.  We have included information below about the different treatment options that are also available in our Framingham pain management and treatment facility, but please call us at 508-309-7475 if you have any questions!

    SpineCor Dynamic Scoliosis Bracing System

The SpineCor brace is designed to allow for total freedom of movement. Movement allows for proprioceptive input to the brain ( the input from nerves in your joints telling the brain where a part of your body is at any given time). The SpineCor brace also allows for the strengthening of muscles through normal activity, rather than a weakening or atrophy of muscles due to lack of movement. We encourage people of all ages fitted with the SpineCor brace to participate in all activities while wearing the brace under clothing. And because it is virtually undetectable, people are more prone to wear it as directed. This increases compliance and results in greater changes.

           SpineCor Physiotherapy Program

The SpineCor Physiotherapy Program has been designed to complement the action of the brace and reinforce the principles of the treatment. Precise exercises have been designed for each type of scoliosis curve, according to the specific spine deformation and postural disorganization of the patient.

Patients treated with the SpineCor brace must only carry out the exercises exclusively designed for his/her type of scoliosis curve to avoid interfering with the action of the brace.

                  Cold Laser for Pain Management

Dr. Dunsky is currently one of a few health practitioners in Massachusetts using Cold Laser Therapy. The main therapeutic effect of these lasers is to stimulate the repair and healing process of an injury or wound.

The result of this therapy is diminished pain, reduced inflammation, decreased edema, faster healing times and increased strength of repaired tissues.  Mny conditions can be treated by cold laser, ie. all cell types including muscle, ligament, cartilage, nerves, etc., therefore,

   Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression Therapy

Dr Dunsky has been leading the way in Spinal Decompression Therapy for many years.  He is the past president and co-founder of the New England Spinal Decompression Association and the American Spinal Decompression Association.  He has been educating doctors and patients around the country since 2006 on this advanced technology that has been giving people their life back.  Dr Dunsky has helped thousands of patients improve the quality of their life through a nonsurgical and noninvasive therapy called Spinal Decompression Therapy.

Do you suffer from arm pain or leg pain, numbess and tingling in the hands and feet, neck pain or back pain?  If so, you may be suffering from a herniated disc, bulging disc, sciatica, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, diffuse cervical bulge, spinal degeneration or arthritis in the spine.

Chiropractic Care

We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Dr. Joshua Dunsky has years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.


Corrective Exercises

At Boston Scoliosis Specialists, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.


Lifestyle Advice

Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.


Nutritional Counseling

What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our Framingham chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.


Massage Therapy

Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural  treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!


Spinal & Postural Screenings

There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your spinal health is no exception. Posture and spinal screenings by a trained and experienced chiropractor such as Dr. Joshua Dunsky can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being. In order to help the Framingham community, we provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today at 508-309-7475 to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
