The analysis and diagnosis of the patient's specific problem is critical to effective treatment, especially to reduce pain and inflammation. This analysis begins with a detailed physical history performed by our Physician Assistant in coordination with the findings and treatment strategy with our Chiropractic Physicians. In the early stages of pain and inflammation, our Physician Assistant can utilize Trigger Point Injections to catalyze pain reduction from a muscular perspective, perform small and large joint injections, or further evaluate for chronic inflammation (think gluten-intolerance, or an inability to lose weight) via nutritional and allergy testing. They can also distribute active orthotic braces for improving stability, or issue TENS/Electrical Muscle Stimulation units for home therapy. These advanced services safely and quickly alleviate symptoms, opening the door for more effective rehabilitation in a shorter time frame, with more longevity.
The mobility of the body is paramount to effective musculoskeletal therapy and the long-term reduction of pain/injury. Through highly refined orthopedic and neuromuscular evaluation and effective treatment utilizing a variety of techniques, including Diversified, Thompson, Activator, Webster, Active Release and more, the board-certified Chiropractic Physicians at Atlantic Spine Clinic are able to tailor treatment to individual needs in a painless therapy -- not only for spine or back pain, but shoulder, elbow, hip, knee and all other extremity sites as well.
Critical to both short- and long-term patient success in this office is our wide variety of therapies available at Atlantic Spine Clinic. Therapeutic Ultrasound, Electrical Muscle Stimulation, Dry Needling, Inversion Therapy, and Intersegmental Traction are just some of the services that augment our strategy to treat not just the site of pain, but also the source of the pain, which is often found in an imbalance of strength and flexibility, and subsequent compensatory patterns. Therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises targeting these deficiencies correlate directly to improved patient outcomes and sustained functional restoration.
