Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic is a science dedicated to and based on the human body, particularly the relationship between skeletal and the nervous system. When balanced, these vital systems interact to preserve and restore your health. Chiropractic is a hands-on approach to health and wellness, relying on the body to heal itself and correcting any misalignments that may prevent this healing from occurring.

Chiropractic manipulation or adjustment is designed to:

Treat mechanical restrictions (dysfunctional joints)
Increase your range of motion
Eliminate excessive strain on your muscles
Block pain impulses and increase your comfort level
Adjustments
Adjustments are the central part of chiropractic treatment. The chiropractic adjustment is a therapeutic manipulation that uses controlled force, leverage, direction, amplitude, and velocity directed at specific joints. In other words, an adjustment involves a lot more than simply opening up a joint.


Logan Chiropractic Life Center Marietta GA 30066 will not only perform these adjustments to the spine, but they might adjust other joints, such as the ankle, knee, wrist, elbow, or shoulder in order to restore structural alignment or to improve joint function. Again, proper structure is necessary for proper function, and proper extremity function is an important part of healthy daily living.

Overuse of muscles can cause your body to produce tough, dense scar tissue. As scar tissue builds up, muscles become shorter and weaker, tension on tendons causes tendonitis and nerves can become trapped. This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength and pain. If a nerve is trapped, you may also feel tingling, numbness and weakness.

Over-used muscles (and other soft tissues) change in three important ways:

Acute conditions (pulls, tears, collisions, trauma injuries)
Accumulation of small tears (micro-trauma)
Not getting enough oxygen (hypoxia)
Each of these factors can cause your body to produce tough, dense scar tissue in the affected area. This scar tissue binds up and ties down tissues that need to move freely. As scar tissue builds up, muscles become shorter and weaker, tension on tendons causes tendonitis, and nerves can become trapped. This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and pain. If a nerve is trapped you may also feel tingling, numbness, and weakness.
