At Bluewater Chiropractic Wellness Center, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Niceville office.
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. April Lee has years of training and experience in spinal and extremity adjusting.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you. Dr. April Lee can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.

What is the Lordex System?
The Lordex Lumbar Spine Program is a system developed to restore spinal stability and relieve pain associated with herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, facet syndrome and radiating pain.
The Lordex non-surgical, non-invasive system for management of disabling low back pain incorporates two proprietary machines; the Lordex Decompression Unit (LDU), and the Lordex Lumbar Extension Machine (RX-1). The LDU is designed to unload the spine, achieving that affect through decompression. The unique and versatile design allows angle specific, variable positioning to focus on the specific lesion, disc, or vertebrae which is the source of the pain.
Can the Lordex System work for everyone?
Clinical results indicate 80%, or more, or persons suffering from the common causes of low back pain could be provided relief by proper application of the Lordex program and protocols.
Patients with fractures, tumors, infections or metabolic disease are not candidates for treatment for the Lordex program. Your physician determines proper course of treatment, candidate status, and whether your condition exceeds the limits of a non-surgical program.
About Lordex Treatment
Each Lordex session consists of treatment on the LDU and RX-1 and takes approximately 45 minutes. The complete Lordex treatment program requires 20 hours over a 4 to 6 week period. The treatment is painless and most patients find the experience relaxing. Lordex is primary treatment for the management of pain for patients with disabling low back pain. Treatment is administered with patients fully clothed.
