A chiropractic adjustment, or spinal manipulation, is a treatment commonly applied to the joints in the spine or extremities when they stop working normally. They can do so by a variety of mechanisms like falling, poor posture or even stress from work. The chiropractic adjustment restores normal joint function and can be a source of fast pain relief. It alone has been proven more effective than drugs or placebo for certain conditions. Don’t like the “CRACK” or “POP” you may hear from an adjustment? Dr. Shuman is trained in a variety of techniques that are meant to match patient comfort while still delivering clinically superior results.
Soft Tissue Treatments
Muscles and other soft tissues (tendons, nerves, ligaments and fascia) can also lose proper function just like joints do. Scar tissue, or “knots”, can severely impact the way our muscles contract and relax. We get these knots from exercise, sports, as well as stress and overuse. Shuman is an Instructor Level provider (the only one in Atlanta) of Active Release Technique, the “Gold Standard” in soft-tissue healthcare. While this is the most consistent tool he uses, he is also trained in a number of techniques to address a variety of issues.
Functional Movement Assessment
Sometimes our patients only want pain relief. If that isn’t your only goal, Dr. Shuman can perform a functional movement assessment to identify unknown problems that could become painful if let alone. Corrective exercises are given to address the problem and improve function. This may or may not be an option you choose to explore which is completely acceptable.
