Chiropractic Services and Techniques
Here at Atlantic Chiropractic and Rehabilitation in Chesapeake, we offer a mixture of several different services designed to work synergistically to deliver relief from pain and a solution to musculoskeletal subluxations and injuries. All of our services are non-invasive and work by empowering the body to make a complete recovery without the use of pain medications or surgery.
Chiropractic care is the central focus of our practice. We believe that everyone -- injured or not -- should obtain regular spinal and postural screenings to protect the back and neck from future injuries and also identify potential alignment problems.
Corrective exercises are another important facet of rehabilitation. We customize exercises that are designed to challenge mobility restrictions and also help with pain relief during the recovery process. Corrective exercises are especially beneficial to personal injury patients and athletes. The exercises are usually performed both in-office and at home between visits.
Massage is a complement to our other corrective services. Massage helps relax muscles prior to an adjustment, and it also aids in flexibility during corrective exercises. Furthermore, many patients report fewer migraine headache occurrences following frequent massage therapy sessions.
Patients may benefit from a combination of our rehabilitative services at once. For example, an individual who suffers from a pinched nerve, which can cause a recurring migraine headache and low back pain, may experience faster recovery with chiropractic care, greater mobility with corrective exercise, and less pain through massage.
In addition to corrective services, our chiropractor offers lifestyle and nutrition advice to promote healthy living. We believe you deserve more than just a pain-free life. Instead, we want to see each of our patients living in whole health. Maintaining a healthy body is the easiest and most effective way of preventing future injuries and health complications.
Our lifestyle advice services may include suggestions for improving sleep habits, such as by vary sleep positions, going to bed earlier or by finding a more supportive pillow or mattress. We may also provide lifestyle coaching for being more physically active, managing stress or learning to properly stretch and cool-down prior to and following exercise.
We also offer nutritional advice as a means of aiding in weight loss, maintaining a healthy weight and building a strong musculoskeletal system that is resistant to injury. Patients who participate in nutritional counseling often experience less low back pain as excess weight sheds away. Furthermore, the body may be less prone to developing joint problems or a pinched nerve.
If you live in or around the Chesapeake area and are in search of a chiropractor who will treat your entire body, rather than just a symptom, call us for an appointment today. We look forward to helping you reach and maintain good health.
