Manual therapy to the joints and soft tissues, spinal adjustments, and whole-body healing through nutritional counseling, massage, and rehabilitation therapy are all part of our wellness-based chiropractic care philosophy. As a result, the healthcare professionals at South Cherokee Chiropractic are dedicated to helping people of all ages in restoring and maintain their health through chiropractic care and other natural remedies.
Why? Chiropractic care is more than merely a treatment option; it's a way of life. Many individuals benefit from chiropractic treatment for chronic health issues as well as disorders originating from spinal accidents and traumas.
Chiropractic care is frequently called to be miraculous because of its power to bring relief when all other forms of medical treatment have failed. Regular Chiropractic care can help you decrease your dependency on prescription drugs, relieve the symptoms of a number of diseases, and improve your energy levels.
Pediatric chiropractic therapy provides a strong foundation for continuing health and nervous system function in children as they grow older, resulting in greater growth, development, and quality of life.
Even in normal circumstances, the birth process is typically the first source of spinal trauma. The physician grips the baby's head and twists it in a figure-eight motion, lifting it to accept the lower shoulder and then down to receive the upper shoulder when the child's head appears. The baby's spine is put under a lot of strain as a result of this.
Growth patterns suggest the potential for neurological disorders is most critical from birth to two years of age, as this time is the most dynamic and important phase of postnatal brain development.
Over sixty percent of all neurological development occurs after birth in the child’s first year of life. This is why it is so important to bring your child to a local pediatric chiropractor to have them checked and for your child to get a chiropractic adjustment during the first year of their life. The daily stresses that our children face as they grow might harm their growing bodies.
An infant often falls when learning to walk or tumbling from a bed or other piece of furniture during the first few years of life. Even the seemingly harmless act of tossing babies up in the air and catching them can cause a whiplash-like injury to the spine, making it critical to have your child checked by a pediatric chiropractor at every stage of their development, as minor injuries can develop into major health issues if left untreated.
Chiropractic adjustments are appropriate for people of all ages. Dr. Ryan has adjusted babies that are just hours old! The sooner you can get your baby to a chiropractor to get checked after they are born the better. The birth process is tough on that precious baby, whether it was a smooth smooth birth or a very traumatic one. Certainly the most traumatic experience of their entire lives.
Here are the 6 most important times in a baby’s first year of life when pediatric chiropractic care is most important:
- After the birth process.
- When the baby starts to hold his/her head up.
- When the baby sits up.
- When the baby starts to crawl.
- When the baby starts to stand.
- When the baby starts to walk.
What condition can a pediatric chiropractic help children with?
Loss of hearing
Hip, leg or foot pain
Breast feeding difficulties
Arm, hand or shoulder pain
Anxiety and nervousness
A woman's growing pelvic and hip joints are put under pressure by her growing baby. Backache, sciatica, headaches, sleeplessness, and a general feeling of discomfort are all common symptoms. Prenatal chiropractic care can aid in determining misalignments and imbalances in a woman's spine that cause pain..
Chiropractic care is essential for both the mother and the baby's normal function during pregnancy and birth.
Benefits of Prenatal care can include:
- Decrease labor
- Increased pelvic function
- Increased comfort throughout pregnancy
- Decreased low back, pelvic and pubic pain

Every professional athlete is aware of how sports chiropractic therapy promotes the brain-body connection and increases the ability to perform at their greatest. Athletes can use sports chiropractic care to unlock the full potential of human performance, ensuring that they perform at their best during competition or their regular training routine.
Exercise is beneficial to your overall health. It can help you relax and strengthen your bones, joints, and heart. However, injuries can occur when participating in these sports, which is unpleasant. It's fairly normal to get hurt when doing these easy chores, whether you've become excessive with your routine or just forgot to utilize the right safety equipment.
Strains, sprains, tendinosis and stress fractures are the most common sports injuries. Muscles and tendons can rupture when a person bends or overextends a joint by accident. A strain can be caused by overextending these muscles. A sprain can happen if the ligament tears.
Tendinosis (overuse syndrome) occurs when the body's joints are overworked. When these parts are overworked, they cause discomfort and malfunction. Because the tendons are used frequently, they get inflamed as a result of the repetitive movements.
Tendonitis can manifest itself in a variety of ways, including Tennis Elbow and Golfer's Elbow. Another common injury associated with sports injuries is stress fractures. Fatigue fractures are another name for stress fractures. These fractures occur when a bone is subjected to an abnormally great amount of weight. It's very usual for new runners to begin at a higher level than is recommended.
X-rays may be required to diagnose an existing injury that you may have. X-rays are used to rule out fractures and locate soft-tissue damage. In most cases, ice and heat, as well as elevation and rest, are effective in reducing pain and inflammation as the tissue heals. The most important thing to understand is how to avoid sports injuries. Sports injuries can be significantly reduced by learning effective warm-up and cool-down procedures, adequate water intake, and proper motions.
A chiropractic adjustment is a fast thrust applied to a joint to reestablish a full range of motion.
A joint's and its surrounding structures' ability to move appropriately might contribute to discomfort or dysfunction.
Rehabilitative / Corrective exercises
In many circumstances, soft tissue manipulation or chiropractic alone will not be enough to heal an injury to muscles, tendons, or joints. A rehabilitative exercise is an excellent approach that helps injured tissues strengthen, stretch, or restructure.
Our bodies are built to keep us from feeling pain. Even when the pain has faded, this protective mechanism might have an impact on how we move. Corrective exercise is used to re-establish normal movement and lessen the risk of injury in the future.
Compression therapy means using compression boots to apply gentle pressure to the leg. The veins in your legs must defy gravity while you are sitting or standing to return blood to your heart.
The leg is gently squeezed during compression therapy, which promotes faster and more continuous blood flow. The boots start by having the sensation of a blood pressure cuff around your foot; they gradually inflate and deflate in segments to imitate the body's natural muscle pump, which moves waste materials and improves lymphatic drainage.
Kinesio taping can be used to achieve positive improvements, from lowering swelling and discomfort to enhancing movement patterns. In the office, Dr. Ryan prefers to use RockTape to treat sports and non-sports-related injuries, including shin splints, plantar fasciitis, runner’s knee, neck, shoulder, and back pain.
The application of the kinesiology tape is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion by microscopically lifting the skin away from the muscle and fascia below, creating a decompressive effect.
Ultrasound therapy is a low-cost treatment that gives many people a lot of relief.
Ultrasound therapy relieves muscle spasms and even improves joint function by sending ultrasonic waves through the body.
When you have tight muscular soreness, inflammation, or poor circulation, ultrasound therapy is ideal.
Intersegmental Traction Table
Intersegmental traction tables gradually help the body's spine reestablish its natural ranges. Intersegmental traction tables can also help with muscle relaxation and spasm reduction.
The use of an intersegmental traction table has been found to considerably speed up the rehabilitation process after a back injury.
Electrical Stimulation Therapy
Electrical Stimulation Therapy (E-stim) is another treatment that uses electrodes on the skin to transmit energy to the body from a machine. E-stim can reduce muscle spasms, reduce swelling, halt atrophy, strengthen the muscles, and minimize pain brought on by injuries, surgeries, or spasms.
Patients who have experienced paralysis or a spinal cord injury can also benefit from E-stim.
E-stim is used by therapists to assist critically ill patients in exercising and preserving muscular tone, which would otherwise deteriorate from lack of activity. E-stim is also helpful since it can increase muscle tonicity, strength, and control while also enhancing circulation.
Electrodes on the skin are used in e-stim to transfer energy from a machine to the body.
