At A Family Practice & Wellness Center, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Cartersville office.
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As Doctors of Chiropractic, our doctors have years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
To complement and enhance the healing effects of the specific Chiropractic adjustment, we at A Family Practice & Wellness Center also provide the following physiological therapeutic procedures:
- Interferential electrical muscle stimulation
- Microamperage neural stimulation
- Mechanical traction
- Moist heat therapy
- Paraffin bath
- Work hardening rehabilitation program
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
Dry needling involves solid filament needles (similar to those used in acupuncture), which are placed into the trigger point to produce a local twitch response (LTR). The needles are very thin and rarely felt entering the skin. The LTR is therapeutically essential for treatment because it is followed by a period of reflexive relaxation of the muscle. When a person experiences an LTR, they will often feel a cramping sensation or discomfort in the referral pattern of the muscle lasting a few seconds.
- Decreased muscle pain and soreness
- Muscle relaxation
- Increased flexibility
