When you come to the clinic with our chiropractor in Jackson, he wants to understand your problem to give you our best care. After reviewing and talking about your history, an exam is performed to evaluate for musculoskeletal and other problems. Diagnostic imaging may be performed to assist in the evaluation process. This evaluation is performed by the doctor, Michael Pearson, DC in Jackson. "My goal is to give you the best chiropractic care." Dr. Pearson, chiropractor Jackson TN
After evaluation, a chiropractic adjustment may be performed to help with your problem. A chiropractic adjustment is the use of a specific force, by hand or instrument, in a precise direction that helps normalize spinal function. The adjustment is applied to a joint that is restricted, "locked up", or not moving properly. Adjustments help return the bones to a more normal position or motion and reducing irritation to nerves. A variety of techniques are used including low force.
Therapies and Exercise
Along with chiropractic treatments we also use different therapies including ultrasound and electrical stim as well as exercises to help you speed up the recovery process. Exercise is usually a very important part of your treatment plan. We may provide exercises specific to your condition.
Flexion Distraction Treatments
Another treatment option we offer is Flexion Distraction. This is a chiropractic technique used to treat many conditions of the lumbar spine. It is a non-surgical technique aimed at increasing spinal motion and resolving symptoms related to disc issues. The treatment is excellent as a safe, gentle procedure and works well to take pressure off the spinal nerves that may be irritated. This option has helped many patients when other options have not.
We have massage therapy available. This therapy can alleviate muscle tension and stress.
