At Brantley Chiropractic P C, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our North Augusta office.
We provide spinal correction utilizing gentle chiropractic techniques and Atlas Orthogonal techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. All of our doctors have had hours of training in delivering spinal adjustments.
Upper Cervical Specialists
The atlas is the bone at the top of your spinal column directly below your skull. Blood vessels, nerves, and your brain stem extend down through the atlas. If your atlas is accidentally knocked out of alignment, it may impair the blood flow, the nerves, or even the brain stem. Should this happen, it may result in many overlooked and untreated medical conditions. An Atlas Orthogonist is a licensed Doctor of Chiropractic that has extensive training and post-graduate work specializing in correcting spinal realignment by means of an atlas orthogonal percussion instrument. Computerized x-rays indicate if the atlas is in or out of alignment with the resulting adjustment that is required to put the atlas back into place. The orthogonal percussion instrument method is gentle, completely painless, and effective in adjusting your atlas; no heavy upper cervical neck manipulation takes place with this technique. When your atlas is returned to the proper alignment, you restore the correct balance to the underlying spine and skeletal system. This process allows for your body to heal itself in many circumstances. The atlas orthogonal percussion instrument is a percussion instrument that uses a light force to painlessly adjust your atlas resulting in a spinal correction that returns your body back into balance. All four of our doctors are board certified in the Atlas Orthogonal technique.
The BEMER (Bio-Electro-Magnetic-Energy-Resonance) provides the body with increased micro circulatory oxygenated blood flow, specifically in the capillaries. BEMER therapy increases the rate of vasomotion by nearly 30 percent. This allows more oxygen to be delivered to every cell in the body, creating an effective way to spot treat injuries, wounds, and ailments. Consistent improvement in cellular exchange of nutrients, hydration and waste occurs for overall enhanced performance, recovery, and quality of life.
Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each patient is a whole person, and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Julie Blankenship can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
