Healing Begins at Athena Chiropractic
At Athena Chiropractic, located in Wilmington, our team of health care professionals are dedicated to providing patients with exceptional wellness and pain treatment. It’s commonly known that chiropractors treat patients who are suffering with back or neck pain. We also treat patients who suffer from headaches, tendinitis, nerve pain, and more. Most of our patients find relief after a single spinal adjustment, though some conditions require more attention.
Chiropractic treatment uses a natural approach to whole body wellness. We focus on the structure of the spine. The spine is a complex arrangement of bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. When the bones along the spine become misaligned, other parts of the spine can be affected as well. There are several types of problems that can arise as the result of spinal misalignment. When the bones along the spine are misaligned, they place pressure on the surrounding structures, which causes pain, headaches, sciatica, and other forms of dysfunction.
We use several different treatment modalities at Athena Chiropractic:
Spinal Adjustments: Manual therapies are the hallmark of many chiropractors, including ours. These tried and true techniques are used to eliminate spinal misalignments that cause problems throughout the body.
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS): We apply TENS treatment to localized areas of pain. This treatment involves the use of electrodes placed against the skin, sending low-level electrical impulses to targeted areas. TENS helps soothe muscle and nerve pain. It also helps loosen and relax soft tissue prior to spinal adjustment.
The Activator Method: This is another form of treatment our chiropractor uses. This pain-free treatment uses a small hand-held, spring-loaded device that applies pressure to targeted areas that may be the source of pain.
