Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.

Our Services

Chiropractic is a health care discipline that emphasizes the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine, and disorders which affect general health via the nervous system. Chiropractic Treatment involves manual therapy, including manipulation of the spine, joints, and soft tissue massage; treatment also includes exercises, nutritional and lifestyle counseling.

Non-surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy is an alternative to surgery. Whether you have lower back pain, a pinched nerve, sciatica, neck pain, or a variety of symptoms related to damaged or degenerative discs, as well as syndromes of the lumbar and cervical spine, this gentle therapy can provide relief and is a state-of-the-art therapy for bulging or degenerative disc disease of the neck and low-back.

Neuro-Analgesia is an innovative treatment modality that can reduce the burning, sharp pain and numbness and tingling associated with peripheral neuropathy. Whether you have pain, numbness, tingling, burning, or weakness, in hands and/or feet, this brand new treatment specifically addresses the damaged nerves of the peripheral nervous system to reduce those symptoms.

Massage therapy works in conjunction with all of the services we offer at LeBlanc Spine & Nerve. An increase of blood circulation, relief of muscle pain and spasms and an increase in range of motion are just a few of the many benefits you can receive from massage therapy.

We offer a simple yet Advanced System that promotes a safe, natural approach to weight loss that is based on eating “REAL FOODS” with natural supplementation. Most patients lose an average of three – five pounds per week without injections, prescription drugs, or, pre-packaged foods. We will coach you on what foods to eat that will optimize nutrition intake and promote fat burning.

Pain Management

Athletic Performance
Former Heisman Trophy winner and two-time national football champion with the New Orleans Saints, Reggie Bush says, “I look at chiropractic care as important to keeping me healthy AND at the top of my game.” The robust need for chiropractic care in athletics has been deeply driven by the players’ desire for peak physical conditioning and not simply for injuries. “Bodybuilders and fitness people have been using chiropractic very extensively in order to stay healthy and fit. I found it was better to go to a chiropractor before you get injured. We are a perfect team – the world of fitness and the world of chiropractors,” says Arnold Schwarzenegger, 7-time Mr. Olympia and former Governor of California. For any athlete who is looking for an edge to his or her physical performance, the improved communication between the brain and every part of the body, especially the heart, lungs and muscles can make the difference between winning and losing.

LeBlanc Spine and Nerve serves all local athletes and is an official sponsor of Gladiators Academy in Lafayette. The Gladiators Academy of Lafayette Fight Team is a world renowned MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) competition team that is led by highly regarded UFC Veteran and Elite Level MMA Coach, Tim Credeur.
