Have you been looking for a chiropractor in Atlanta? Unlike conventional medicine, which focuses on attempting to treat disease once it occurs, the chiropractic care offered at Integrated Chiropractic Center in Atlanta emphasizes the importance of improving your health in an effort to reduce the risk of pain and illness in the first place. Given the option, most people would prefer to be healthy and avoid illness if possible, and chiropractic care can help those people achieve their health and wellness goals.
An examination may have revealed areas of your spine that are malfunctioning. This often results in nervous system compromise, impairment to the muscles that support the spine, damage to soft tissues of the spine, and sets in motion a degenerative process. Researchers refer to this five-part problem as the Vertebral Subluxation Complex. Discs, ligaments and other soft tissues can malfunction, too. These important soft tissues have a poor blood supply, so proper healing often requires continued care even after the relief of obvious symptoms.
Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ, and system of your body. Your nervous system consists of your brain, spinal cord, and millions of nerves. Your brain is protected by the skull, and your spinal cord by the 24 moving bones of the spine. Many everyday activities can cause these spinal bones to lose their normal position or motion. This can result in nervous system dysfunction and ultimately, ill health. The chiropractic approach to better health is to detect, reduce, and help prevent nervous system dysfunction.
It is important that you understand that all health and accident insurance policies are an arrangement between you, the patient, and your insurance carrier. This office will be happy to prepare and file all necessary claims and reports to assist you with your insurance carrier.
In my office you are in control of your health care and you make the decisions. It is my job to reform and educate you as well as give you my recommendations. Then it is up to you to make the health care choice that is best for you. However it is true that many patients continue to come in and get adjusted on a regular basis. It is just like anything else that has a beneficial effect on you body like exercising, eating well, drinking water, stretching, dental check ups. There may be some discomfort from adjusting the part of the body that is injured or from working with the muscle to get them to relax so the adjustment can be performed easier but for most of my patients there is no pain associated with the adjustment.
If areas of abnormal spinal function are identified, your doctor will recommend a chiropractic care program of spinal adjustments. Your plan of care is based upon your age, condition, lifestyle, and unique spinal problem(s). The primary course of care will be specific chiropractic adjustments. This will help return individual spinal bones to their proper motion and position. There are hundreds of ways of using carefully directed and controlled pressure to restore better position and motion to "stuck" or fixated spinal joints.
