Over the years, more and more people across the world are experiencing the benefits of chiropractic care. Patients appreciate the holistic and non-invasive method of treatment that chiropractic offers.
Care from your local chiropractor is designed to help correct the underlying causes of many illnesses, rather than merely treating the symptoms. Chiropractic is safe and natural, requiring no drugs, surgery, or needles.
Suffering with a misaligned spine or different back injury can cause debilitating pain and whole body discomfort. Visits to the chiropractor can help realign your spine while reducing pain throughout the body. Reduction of pain allows you to get back to your regular everyday activities like walking the Beltline, driving your car, or simply going to work.
BENEFITS OF CHIROPRACTIC THAT DO NOT INVOLVE YOUR BACK
Enhanced Immune System
Sympathetic nervous system activity created during an adjustment has been shown to release immune regulatory cells into the blood. This process helps to boost immunity and may help to ward off a variety of ailments such as the common cold.
Improved Respiratory Circulation
Various chiropractic treatments may help to improve communication to major nerves of the heart, along with improving blood flow to vital arteries. This improved circulation often leads to welcomed relief from a myriad of common respiratory conditions, including asthma and allergies.
If you are like most people, you probably spend a lot of time engaged in repetitive motions throughout your daily life. These patterns may range from holding your child on the same side, to working all day at an uncomfortable desk on your computer. These unassuming routines may lead to stiffness in the neck or shoulders. Your chiropractor is just the person who can help relieve the stiffness and prevent any further injuries.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A VISIT
As a new patient, our chiropractors will conduct a thorough physical examination to determine the most effective approach to treatment for each individual. In the event that x-rays are warranted, we take them prior to treatment, using our digital radiography system which exposes the body to up nearly 80% less radiation than a traditional x-ray.
Treatment commonly begins on an intersegmental traction table, which softly pulls the spinal column in motion while simultaneously stretching other soft tissue structures that affect the health of the spine. The individualized adjustment is then delivered by your chiropractor in order to relieve pressure on spinal nerves and create proper joint space and motion within the body.
Our chiropractors are proficient in diversified manual adjustments, Thompson, SOT, and Activator protocol.
