As chiropractors, our profession is concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on your general health. Every individual undergoes a comprehensive case history and an examination to determine the etiology of the condition and the best course of treatment. Charleston Neck & Back Center offers a variety of specialized treatments that may be used individually or in combination with one another to reduce your pain and treat the underlying problem.
This technique consists of manual manipulation of the joints. This is a therapeutic and health-enhancing technique to correct joint hypo-mobility or lack of normal range of motion.
This is an alternative adjustment technique that uses a highly technical computerized method to analyze and gently treat the spine. The ProAdjuster administers a controlled percussive force to the affected areas. The treatment is consistent, measurable and extremely gentle.
This therapy is a non-surgical treatment for degenerative and herniated disk problems. Disc decompression elongates the spine by stretching the ligament that encompasses the disc. This therapy assists in decreasing pain, swelling and inflammation along with increasing range of motion and re-hydrating discs.
We use myofascial release techniques: Graston Technique, Trigger Point Therapy and Active Release Technique (ART) for soft tissue stabilization.
We use Physiotherapy to reduce pain and to improve strength and mobility. This includes ultrasound, electrical stimulation, intersegmental traction and exercise therapy. Active rehabilitation is the key to restoring our patients to full function. During the course of treatment we teach exercises for reactivation of muscle patterns, strengthening and spinal stability as well as movement strategies to help prevent recurrence of injury.
Deep-tissue and trigger point massages are administered by our Licensed Massage Therapists. Our Massage Therapists are highly experienced in medical massage and work closely with our physicians in order to promote optimal results.
