Chiropractic care is often the best first stop for chronic back and neck pain relief. Using time-tested techniques, adjustments, and diagnostic equipment, chiropractic physicians focus on treating the cause of injuries to the spine without surgery or prescription medications.

At Carolinas Chiropractic and Spinal Rehab, our doctors develop personalized treatment plans for pain relief using advanced technologies like our class IV cold laser and our new VitaBed full-body light bed therapy solution.

Restoring Function is a Top Priority

What you may not realize is that restoring function is often a top priority for our team. When your body functions in the way it was designed to move, you experience less pain and reduce the potential for injury. More importantly, your body has the opportunity to heal itself naturally.

Proper function in the spine supports proper function in other systems of the body as well, making our mission all the more important at Carolinas Chiropractic and Spinal Rehab.

How the Spine Affects Function in Other Parts of the Body

Your spine is the pillar that supports your entire upper body and gives structure to your lower extremities. Malfunction in the spine often leads to pain, and unfortunately, this pain may only be the start of your troubles.

Functional Issues With the Spine Can Lead to Less Movement

Because your spine is the central housing for your nervous system via your spinal cord, injury and weakness in the spine can go on to affect nerves in other parts of your body. This can then lead to pain, weakness, numbness, tingling, and a series of functional issues that reduce flexibility and dexterity. Over time, some people begin to notice that they aren’t able to use their bodies like they used to, and so they become less mobile and more sedentary.

Movement is Medicine

At Carolinas Chiropractic and Spinal Rehab, we believe that movement is medicine and motion is lotion. A sedentary lifestyle combined with an injured spine can create a domino effect in which spine problems compound on top of one another.

Each day spent not moving is one more day that spine problems have to get worse. This also means that it may take that much longer to rejuvenate the spine and restore function. Reduced function leads to a sedentary lifestyle which leads to reduced function which leads to a sedentary lifestyle and so on.

Natural Healing Without Surgery or Medication

As chiropractors, we believe in the healing power of the body. This doesn’t mean we don’t believe in surgery or medications. In fact, far from it as we often work hand-in-hand with doctors across multiple disciplines when developing treatment plans. Surgery and medications have their place, but our approach is one that seeks to avoid these measures when it is healthy to do so.

Decompression Therapy as a Solution for Natural Healing

Our decompression therapy is a perfect example of how the body can naturally heal. Decompression therapy restores function while alleviating pain by gently stretching the spine. As this stretching motion activates, vitamins, oxygen, and nutrients in the blood are pumped into damaged tissues. This action allows damaged tissues to take full advantage of natural substances needed for natural healing.

It All Comes Back Down to Proper Function

A healthy spine is a functional spine, and a functional spine is a spine that supports healthy function across other parts of the body, including joints and ligaments. A healthy spine can allow you to move pain-free, and this promotes an active lifestyle which can further support spine health.

Just like spinal injuries and sedentary lifestyles can cause a decline in health like dominoes falling into one another, healthy movement and a functional spine can power one another to make your body stronger and lead to healthier outcomes. It all starts by restoring function so you can move and allow your body to heal naturally.
