While chiropractic adjustments are beneficial, they are only one of the tools we use to treat our patients. Some patients are candidates for adjustments; others are not. The majority of our patients require a combination of joint manipulation, muscular therapy, and rehab techniques. Our goal is to quickly identify what’s causing your pain and teach you how to minimize any reoccurrence through specific exercises and principles.
From a modern Western medical perspective the tiny acupuncture needles inserted into the skin promote blood circulation to targeted areas. This, in turn, activates your body’s immune and nervous systems, leading to reduced inflammation and releasing endorphins to alleviate pain. Acupuncture helps to correct imbalances in the body caused by external factors such as stress, toxins, and injury – once restored to proper balance, the body has a better chance to heal itself.
A patented soft tissue system and movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. ART can help with overused muscles quickly and permanently.
Mechanical Diagnosis & Therapy (the “McKenzie Method”) is an assessment that relieves pain through the deep understanding of a condition, allowing the patient to treat their own pain with specific movements, therefore making the patient less reliant on his or her doctor. McKenzie is considered the most well researched conservative musculoskeletal approach on the planet. Dr. Jolson is the only chiropractor eligible for credentialing in South Carolina.
This type of rehab utilizes movements that are individualized and appropriate for each patient’s daily life and goals. The purpose is to promote proper activation and coordination of the neuromuscular system, allowing patients to regain strength and stability to overcome pain. Dr. Jolson primarily utilizes the principles of Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS), a system based on developmental kinesiology.
