WHY SHOULD I SEE A CHIROPRACTOR?
At Arrowhead Clinics, we have focused on treating accident victims for nearly 40 years and are leaders in this field. We have grown to 17 chiropractic clinic locations in Georgia and South Carolina.
Our licensed chiropractic doctors deal with injuries related to car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, slip and falls, work-related injuries, and much more. We also offer same-day appointments for injured patients that require a walk-in exam.
Our goal is to quickly and effectively treat you and get you back on track. After your consultation, your chiropractor will assess your problem areas with a multi-approach diagnosis. They will then go over a treatment plan with you. You can expect to receive a combination of treatments.
Let's go over in more detail what these treatments involve if you are new to chiropractic.
Chiropractic Treatments Offered at Arrowhead Clinic
THE DIVERSIFIED TECHNIQUE
The Diversified Technique is a type of spinal manipulation technique. This technique aims to ensure proper movement and mobility by restoring spinal alignment and repairing joint disfunction. By using precise hands-on thrusts, chiropractors can restore spinal alignment and improve their patient’s range of motion. Approximately 96% of all chiropractors practice the Diversified Technique on roughly 70% of their patients.
Patients can sit, stand, or lie down while a chiropractor positions joints for movement. With a quick thrust, the injured area is pushed back into position, giving the patient a normal range of motion. In some cases, the body is positioned in an uncomfortable way to facilitate a shift in a more stubborn area.
MANUAL SPINAL MANIPULATION
EXERCISE AND STRETCHING
Chiropractors generally prescribe strengthening and lengthening exercises for their patients with neck, back, and extremity pain.
These exercises help to decrease pain, increase strength, slow muscle deterioration, improve joint health, provide stability and range of motion, and protect against recurring or future injuries.
Your chiropractor will explain how to execute the exercises and make sure you are comfortable doing them independently.
It's essential to keep up with your prescribed exercises. Studies show that individuals who follow their exercise treatment plan heal faster than those who do not.
TRANSCUTANEOUS ELECTRIC NERVE STIMULATION (TENS)
Therapeutic ultrasound is a form of deep tissue heat therapy created by mechanical vibration increasing in frequencies, also known as sound waves.
When applied to soft joints and tissues, the sound waves are a form of micro-massage that increases blood flow to the area, reducing swelling, and decreases pain, stiffness, and muscle spasms.
The sound waves travel bet through tissues with a higher collagen content such as scar tissue, ligaments, tendons, joints, and fascia.
THOMPSON-DROP TABLE TECHNIQUE
The Thompson Drop-Table Technique uses a unique table with padded platforms equipped with drop mechanisms so the patient can be "dropped" less than an inch while the chiropractor applies a quick and precise thrust to adjust parts of the body.
The dropping motion is similar to a light vibration.
The Thompson Table protects the patient from being overadjusted, and the chiropractor doesn't over-stress themselves while adjusting patients day in and day out.
THE GONSTEAD ADJUSTMENT
THE ACTIVATOR METHOD
FLEXION DISTRACTION TECHNIQUE
ICE AND HEAT THERAPY
SACRO OCCIPITAL TECHNIQUE
