Atlanta Spine Center (ASC) has developed specific programs that address musculoskeletal complaints which take into consideration biomechanics, strength, flexibility and balance. Integrating chiropractic care with specialized rehabilitation techniques as well as neuromuscular therapy is a natural choice for improving patient care. We consider a patient’s program successful once they feel comfortable with their pain level and can demonstrate increased range of motion, improved posture, with some control and direction in their own care.
Rehabilitative physical therapy combined with chiropractic care may be your best solution. Many types of chronic complaints and repetitive stress injuries are caused by awkward postures or structural deficit as a result of a posture habit or repeated movement patterns. As modern technology develops, our bodies pay a price for interacting with the world around us. Prolonged sitting at a computer, car accidents or industrial work related injuries are just some examples of the modern world taking its toll.
The Atlanta Spine Center protocol is ideal for sports injuries, herniated or bulging discs, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, whiplash, strains/sprains, and pregnancy related back pain.
Our program allows patients to experience first-hand their areas of weakness and to understand their issues. Most spinal disorders are commonly seen in chiropractic clinics and are the result of some form of spinal curvature or a degenerative process. Applying rehabilitative exercise programs along with specific chiropractic adjustments allows patients to address their pain with passive modalities and progress into an active care plan. Using spinal stabilization exercises and core strengthening techniques allows most patients to note quick and sustained improvement.
Using a modified approach to sports rehabilitation, our physical therapy sessions are tailored for the integrated setting. Patients are encouraged to be relaxed, focused, goal-specific and encouraged to have fun! Feeling in charge of their own health and well-being with guidance from our team will increase patients’ confidence and outlook. This should be the ultimate goal of any healthcare provider.
