Chiropractic Care in Asheville
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing “state of the art” chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Nicole D. Lindsey has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment and offers hands on care along with more gentle instrument techniques.
Soft Tissue Techniques
The muscles, ligaments and fascia need to be addressed along with the bones when we are making correction. It is for this reason that the Doctors in our office utilize soft tissue techniques, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) and Trigger Point Therapy, along with the adjustments. These techniques help to release tension and “knots” that build up in the tissue around the injured site.
Soft Decompression….A Non-Surgical Alternative For Back & Neck Pain Tissue Techniques
DTS is a non-surgical treatment to help in the management of serious low back/leg pain and neck/arm pain associated with herniated, bulging or deteriorated discs. DTS utilizes a traction system to gently stretch the body focused directly at the injured site. As the injured discs and joints are painlessly decompressed a vacuum effect is created. This vacuum effect allows the disc material that has protruded or herniated to be absorbed back into the disc space. Also, as the pressure is reduced proper blood, fluid and nutrient flow is restored, thus promoting a reduction in pain and natural healing of the injured site.
Research of decompression technology found that the treatment provided relief in 86% of patients with ruptured discs. Spinal Disc Decompression is designed to correct the causes of neck, low back pain and sciatica, and not just treat the symptoms.
Corrective Exercises, Stretches and In-Office Therapy
We teach our patients customized exercises and stretches to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in our office and in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health. We also perform a wide range of physiological therapuetics to help manage pain, muscle spasms and gain better results. These therapies include heat, ice, electrical muscle stimulation, intersegmental traction, one on one stretching and cervical and lumber traction to restore the lost curves in the spine.
Theraband Exercises for Extremeties
In addition to healing your spine, we may assist you with rehabilitattion of your ankle, knee, elbow, shoulder or wrist injury. We will identify what the problem is, perform the necessary therapies to help the soft tissue heal and then strengthen the area with exercises to prevent re-injury and help you recover.
Athletic Taping/KinesioTaping/Rock Tape
Athletic taping is used to reduce swelling, inflammation and stabilize the injured tissue or joint. Taping is very effective for athletes that want to stay on their training program without the “hurt.”
We often find it helpful to “coach” our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
Custom-Made Foot Orthotics By Foot Levelers
A digital foot scan will be used to capture an exact impression of your feet while you are standing, with your full weight on your feet.
A custom foot orthotic is a specialty device customized for each individual. An orthotic fits comfortably inside the shoe and redistributes your body weight through correct areas of the foot.
Are Orthotics for me?
Foot problems can result in problems in other areas, just like the foundation shifting on your house. If you suffer from any of these foot issues, you may be able to benefit from custom foot orthotics…
• Heel Spurs
• Plantar Fasciitis
• Neck Pain

• Sore Hips, Knees, Ankles, and Feet
