Chiropractic takes a “whole-body” approach to wellness. Stockbridge Georgia chiropractic offers customized therapy plans to help patients reach their wellness goals.
Unlike traditional physicians, chiropractors focus on correcting spinal misalignments to optimize health. While chiropractic adjustments are commonly used, practitioners also incorporate natural agents, such as heat, cold, water, light, and exercise, as components of physiotherapy. These approaches alleviate pain and stabilize the body after auto accidents, sports injuries, slip-and-fall injuries, chronic headaches, and everyday aches and pains. Physiotherapy can take several forms.
With electrical muscle stimulation, electrodes are placed on the skin, sending light electrical pulses to painful areas. Electrical stimulation relieves back pain, eliminates muscle spasms, and reduces inflammation. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), the most common type, allows patients to control the intensity of stimulation. TENS is believed to block pain signals and encourage the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers.
A traction massage stretches and massages back muscles. The patient lies face-up while a system of rollers moves about the back.
Stockbridge Georgia chiropractic doctors administer non-surgical spinal decompression by using a computer-guided system to stretch the spine, decompress discs, and reduce pressure on nerve roots. This procedure provides long-lasting relief from herniated discs, degenerative disc problems, stenosis, and other chronic neck and back conditions. It has also been known to reduce the effects of sciatica and arm numbness, pain, and tingling.
Cold laser therapy improves circulation while reducing pain, swelling, and inflammation.
Ergonomics deals with workplace modifications that reduce the likelihood of injury.
Some patients experience relief from back, neck, shoulder, and hip pain by using the ATM2, a special exercise device that restores core muscles and increases range of motion.
Brain-Based Therapy (BBT) is a scientifically-proven breakthrough approach that assists patients with chronic pain, balance disorders, and other neurological conditions.
Stockbridge Georgia chiropractic also offers Ideal Protein, a program that helps patients achieve and maintain weight loss.
In addition to various physiological therapies, Stockbridge Georgia chiropractic focuses on patient education, providing nutritional counseling, home exercise routines, and lifestyle recommendations to promote overall wellness.
