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.
Active Release Technique
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 perform. We get these knots from exercise, overuse and repetitive motions or postures. Dr. Shuman is an Instructor Level provider (the only one in Atlanta) of Active Release Technique, the “Gold Standard” in soft-tissue healthcare. While ART is the most effective and consistent tool used, he also does instrument work (“scraping”), cupping and taping.
Functional Movement Exercises
Sometimes our patients only want pain relief and that’s totally fine! If that isn’t your only goal, Dr. Shuman can perform a functional movement assessment to identify unknown problems that could become painful if left alone. Corrective exercises are also given to address those problem and improve function.
