We believe that each patient is a unique individual, so we tailor our treatment approach specifically for you. We will take a detailed history to get a complete picture of your health and your current condition. You will receive a chiropractic examination so we can pin point the source of your problem. We are thorough and can tell you right away whether you are a chiropractic candidate. We base our recommendations on evidence-based protocols. We explain the benefits, the risks, expected results, and make recommendations based on your needs. Our practice is conservative with our treatment approach and we do not sell you on a series of visits or services that you might not even need. We listen to you, rather than talk at you, and we make your well being our first priority.
Pain in the neck, mid back, and low back are all conditions that chiropractors treat every day. We first rule out that there is not a serious underlying pathology referring pain to these regions. Through a detailed history and examination of your area of complaint, we can determine the source of your pain. It can result from any combination of joint, muscle, tendon, ligament, disc, and nerve involvement.
Disc herniations are very common. We are proud to offer the Cox Technique, which is a safe and scientifically proven method to alleviate symptoms associated with a disc bulge or herniation. We are able to gently target your injured disc and alleviate the nerve compression through flexion-distraction and decompression of the spine. This is a very sought after, non-surgical pain relief technique and we are proud to offer it (few certified in the state of GA).
Pain in an Extremity
We treat acute injuries to your extremities (i.e. sports injuries), but often you have pain that evolves overtime or that just seems to appear out of nowhere. Pain in your limbs can arise from overuse, repetitive motion, inflammation, or degeneration. It can affect your joint, the surrounding musculature, ligaments, tendons or nerves. We examine the involved soft tissue structures, pin-point the source of the pain, and treat accordingly with cutting edge technology.
Nerve irritation can result in pain, numbness, burning or tingling in your arm, leg, or elsewhere in the body (i.e. sciatica, carpal tunnel). If these conditions are not addressed it can lead to weakness and the pain can be debilitating.
There are many types of headaches, but they can all be crippling at times and can interfere with your quality of life. They can be multi-factorial and difficult to diagnose. Chiropractors can detect your pain pattern on examination and determine if misalignments, muscle spasms, or nerve pain is responsible for your headaches. Chiropractic treatment also helps with sinus pressure and lymphatic draining.
Jaw Pain (TMJ Disorder)
If you have an jaw issue, you have probably heard of this disorder. You may have pain at the joint site or around the ear, headaches or popping/clicking/locking of your jaw. We can adjust the jaw if you have joint dysfunction and release the muscles that are responsible for imbalance and pain. Issues with your neck can also refer pain to the jaw. We are able to diagnose and treat the source of your TMJ Disorder.
Our practice is rooted in scientific research, but personal experience has us believe that chiropractic can work wonders on a variety of pediatric conditions (i.e. asthma, ear infections). Children respond very well to treatment of the same conditions that plague adults too. Dr. Bowes decided to become a chiropractor when, despite every other medical intervention, only her chiropractor helped with her chronic, debilitating headaches that began in childhood. Please call to see if we can help you.
In pregnancy, the hormonal changes cause a laxity in your ligaments and joints allowing your pelvis to change to accommodate your growing uterus. Your growing belly also changes your center of gravity and you lose your core strength. Joint dysfunction, muscle spasm, inflammation, and nerve impingement can cause radiating pain (i.e. sciatica or carpal tunnel). Issues with pelvic/sacral alignment can impact your babies presentation at birth and can be corrected with treatment.
Degeneration happens naturally over time, despite how well we take care of ourselves. Chiropractic care can help you enjoy your golden years by allowing you to maintain an active lifestyle. Golf, garden, travel, or do what you love as long as you can. Quality of life is our goal for you.
