Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation
Atlanta Spine Center (ASC) has developed specific programs that address musculoskeletal complaints which take into consideration biomechanics, strength, flexibility and balance. Integrating chiropractic care with specialized rehabilitation techniques as well as neuromuscular therapy is a natural choice for improving patient care. We consider a patient’s program successful once they feel comfortable with their pain level and can demonstrate increased range of motion, improved posture, with some control and direction in their own care.
Rehabilitative physical therapy combined with chiropractic care may be your best solution. Many types of chronic complaints and repetitive stress injuries are caused by awkward postures or structural deficit as a result of a posture habit or repeated movement patterns. As modern technology develops, our bodies pay a price for interacting with the world around us. Prolonged sitting at a computer, car accidents or industrial work related injuries are just some examples of the modern world taking its toll.

The Atlanta Spine Center protocol is ideal for sports injuries, herniated or bulging discs, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, whiplash, strains/sprains, and pregnancy related back pain.
Our program allows patients to experience first-hand their areas of weakness and to understand their issues. Most spinal and musculoskeletal disorders commonly seen in healthcare clinics are the result of some form of acute trauma, repetitive stress injury, postural distortion or a degenerative process. Applying rehabilitative exercise programs, specific chiropractic adjustments, medical intervention, and proper ergonomics as well as injury prevention techniques allows patients to address their pain and improve their function. Our protocol begins with passive modalities and progresses into an active care plan with the ultimate goal of getting you back to your activities of daily living. Utilizing stabilization exercises, core strengthening techniques, myofascial therapies, and other modalities allows most patients to note quick and sustained improvement.
Using a modified approach to sports rehabilitation and injury recovery, our physical therapy sessions are tailored for the integrated setting. Patients are encouraged to be relaxed, focused, goal-specific and encouraged to have fun! Feeling in charge of their own health and well-being with guidance from our team will increase patients’ confidence and outlook. This should be the ultimate goal of any healthcare provider.
