Advanced Chiropractic Care

At Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine in Summerville and Mount Pleasant, SC, we focus on providing the best in natural pain relief and physical medicine. Our chiropractors incorporate several different and natural therapies and techniques for relieving pain. By using the most cutting-edge techniques in Chiropractic, physical rehab, and functional rehabilitation, our patients not only get out of pain fast but stay pain-free for longer than just using medications and traditional therapies.

Structural Chiropractic

One of the most effective therapies we use, structural chiropractic is a branch of chiropractic that focuses on the correction of your spine back to within normal range. There are normal ranges for every function in our body, and flexibility and range of motion is no exception.

Treatment

Chiropractic treatment has long been the leading natural and non-invasive approach to treating chronic spinal pain conditions. The field of chiropractic medicine continues to progress and our clinic specializes in using the best combination of chiropractic care with spinal rehabilitative exercises for pain management and pain relief.

Our chiropractic services work by relieving the tension or inflammation to the delicate nerves of the spine. This irritation to spinal nerves is the chief cause of spinal pain.

Improve Mobility

Chiropractic adjustments directly affect musculoskeletal structures by reducing pain and increasing joint motion. Musculoskeletal structures include ligaments, muscles, joints, joint capsules, and the surround muscle tissues. By having proper mobility in the joints, the pressure to a spinal nerve causing pain will diminish and resolve.

Health Benefits of Chiropractic Care

When chiropractic adjustments are given to relieve the pressure placed on the nerves of the spine, relief is noticed almost instantly. This relationship between the spine and nervous system is the main focus of chiropractic treatment. With Chiropractic care, patients not only respond to spine pain conditions, but also to conditions affecting the entire body as well.

This combination of traditional and natural therapies allows our patients to truly receive the best of both worlds when it comes to healthcare today. By first focusing on relieving the inflamed and injured tissues of the spine and body, and combine it with functional rehabilitation for strengthening the muscles around it, it gives our patients a much faster recovery time and much longer results.

FAQ

What is chiropractic?2019-01-02T00:50:44-04:00

Chiropractic care is the leading noninvasive approach to treating chronic spinal conditions, such as misalignments, injuries, and other musculoskeletal disorders, mainly through their connection to the nervous system.

At Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine, your practitioner uses their hands to manually realign your spine or joints in other parts of your body. Chiropractic care is a drug-free practice which focuses on teaching you therapeutic exercises and stretches so that you can include them in your daily routine.

What happens during a chiropractic appointment?2019-01-03T23:22:24-04:00

During your chiropractic visit at Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine, your practitioner first identifies where your pain is located and discusses your overall well-being and lifestyle.

Your practitioner then assesses the condition of your spine and guides you through a series of exercises to determine your range of motion and pain level. From there, your practitioner can recommend various chiropractic treatments based on your individual needs.

At Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine, the method of choice is structural chiropractic care, which focuses on targeting the root of the misalignment, not necessarily targeting the misalignment itself.

Your practitioner may also perform the Thompson Drop Table technique, which requires an adjusting table with a pneumatically driven drop system. When your practitioner performs an adjustment, the table quickly lowers the section of the body corresponding to the spinal region being adjusted.

Adjustments are quick, specific movements that position your vertebrae into the correct alignment, releasing tension on your muscle
