Chiropractic helps patients by correcting the cause of their issues and promoting wellness without prescription drugs or surgery.
The primary goal when you come in for care is to restore proper, natural motion to your spine and body. The reason chiropractors focus so much on the spine is that it houses the nerves that supply every system in your body. The respiratory, digestive, reproductive, and circulatory system are just a few of the things that rely on the nervous system to function properly. Often times people experience improved functioning in these other systems after getting adjusted.
WHY DO MOST PEOPLE SEE A CHIROPRACTOR?
Commonly, people see the chiropractor for neck and back pain but they can still experience the other great benefits that come with getting a chiropractic adjustment. Most patients experience a calming feeling after an adjustment as well as a reduction in stress. These are great side effects to having your nervous system stimulated through a chiropractic adjustment.
WHAT ELSE CAN CHIROPRACTIC HELP ME OUT WITH?
Just a few examples of conditions that can be helped with chiropractic care include headaches, sciatica, TMJ joint pain and dysfunction, tennis elbow, rib pain, numbness and/or tingling down the arm or leg, carpal tunnel, sports injuries, and plantar fasciitis.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM CHIROPRACTIC?
Chiropractic is beneficial for those who are young, those who are a little more “seasoned”, and those who are somewhere in the middle. Chiropractic adjusting techniques can be altered to accommodate patients of any age, size, or special need. Our youngest patient was 3 months old at the time of his first visit and our oldest patient is 92.
Sometimes people attribute certain ailments in their body to “getting old”. While there is some truth to the fact that it’s harder to “bounce back” in your 60s than it was in your early 20s, the fact remains that there is there is still a lot of potential in your body no matter how old you are! We have multiple treatment methods to work with you and your body’s specific needs to get you the best results possible.
WHAT CHIROPRACTIC METHODS ARE USED AT BLUE RIDGE CHIROPRACTIC?
We specialize in traditional manual chiropractic adjustments as well as Activator methods and sports chiropractic treatments. Dr. Zack utilizes a variety of methods to get the best results for each patient. Sometimes an adjustment will consist of just one of these methods and other times all three may even be used depending on patient needs.
Traditional chiropractic methods are a great way to get the spine back in alignment when a moderate amount of force is needed. Activator chiropractic is great for the detailed adjustment when precision is necessary to get the patient better. And finally, sports chiropractic is a great way to adjust body parts outside of the spine (shoulders, knees, ankles, wrists, etc.) while implementing principles to get the patient better as quickly as possible.
