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, sharp movements that push your vertebrae into the correct alignment, releasing tension on your muscles and connective tissue.
The team at Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine work collaboratively to understand the complexities of your spinal system. This means that you’ll speak with multiple team members and get various opinions so you can together make the decision that’s the most relevant to your needs.
