How Does Chiropractic Work?
Chiropractic doctors practice natural, drugless, non-invasive health care and rely on the body’s ability to self-heal. Sounds ideal, but just how does it work?
We Study the Whole Picture
Like other health-care providers, our team of Doctors follow a standard routine to gain information about the patient, which includes a consultation, review the case history, a physical examination and if needed, laboratory analyses and/or x-rays. Our Chiropractic physicians also conduct a careful analysis of the patient’s structure and pay particular attention to the spine. We also ask you about your life— Do you eat well? Exercise at all? How do you deal with stress? Do you have children? What do you do for work?
We Seek the Origin of the Problem
Using this information a diagnosis is made. Included in the diagnosis is the probable reason for your pain or discomfort. It is important to note that chiropractors seek the origin of the illness in order to eliminate it-we do not simply treat the symptoms. Our Doctors locate the pinched nerve or misalignment of the bones that protect the spinal cord. Because the severity of the pinched nerve can vary, and there are a number of potential contributing factors that can be physical, emotional, mental, or chemical. The pinched nerve can be caused by any number of incidents from an auto accident to simple repetition or over-use.
We Help You Fix the Problem
When a pinched nerve occurs, a chiropractor can correct the misaligned bone and allow it to return to its proper position. This procedure is appropriately called an adjustment, and the adjustment enables the body to heal. The wiring is fixed and information is flowing again.
To keep the wiring fixed and the information flowing, several adjustments over a course of time may be necessary, in addition to massage, physical therapy, stretching exercises, or strengthening exercises. In the chiropractic world, keeping the problem fixed and preventing its reoccurrence is just as important as the initial remedy. When you need the very best in chiropractic care, contact Georgia Spinal Health & Wellness to schedule your appointment.

They treated me after two different injuries and I now have full range of motion, am pain-free, and feel like I’m good as new again. I’d highly recommend Dr. Surloff and Dr. Hochman – they’re amazing at what they do and they really care about helping you get better. Plus they’re more than just chiropractic – physical therapy, massage, IDD therapy and more.
In all my years of going to a Dr. I’ve never had someone with better bed side manners, personable, friendly and genuinely interested in your health care. His staff are the best, clean and punctual.
If you’re looking for a professional that has a heart, then go to Georgia Spinal and “stand up straight” again!.
I have had IDD, chiropractic, massage and physical therapy with them over the last few years and have nothing but good things to say about this practice. Everyone there is super friendly and you can tell that Dr. Hochman is genuinely concerned for your wellness
