Are you frustrated with chronic back pain or neck stiffness and searching for a drug-free pain management option? Sherwood Chiropractic Center can help.
Our unique approach to Brookhaven, GA chiropractic care allows us to treat a wide variety of common musculoskeletal conditions including back pain, neck pain, headaches, sciatica and more. In addition to treating adults for chronic pain, our Brookhaven chiropractor, Dr. Kathleen Sherwood, is experienced in pediatric chiropractic care and prenatal care for expecting mothers. From posture evaluations and chiropractic adjustments to spinal exams and nutrition and lifestyle instruction, we empower our Atlanta and Decatur patients to live a healthy, active, and pain-free life.
Our chiropractic adjustments are safe, comfortable and effective for relieving back pain, neck pain, headaches and other chronic pain conditions. Dr. Sherwood provides advanced spinal correction utilizing state-of-the-art adjustment techniques.
Adjustments are a drug-free treatment option that targets the root cause for your pain. When the spine is out of alignment, a herniated or slipped disc may compress nearby nerves. This compression can trigger a radiating or numbing pain sensation along the length of the nerve. As long as the nerve compression persists, you will continue to experience pain. Chiropractic adjustments are a gentle, safe and effective technique for relieving this nerve compression. Adjustments also help alleviate muscle compression and bring a greater range of mobility back to the body.
Over time, many of us adopt poor posture habits like slumping or slouching without ever realizing it! Our posture is our “calling card” and not only effects how people see us, but whether our bodies are at risk for pain or injury. Poor posture correlates with over 200 serious health conditions. During your first visit to our Decatur chiropractic clinic, our chiropractic team will conduct a digital posture analysis. You will be able to see first-hand how posture imbalances are triggering pain. Our chiropractor Dr. Sherwood will teach you an at-home corrective exercise program for improving your posture, balance, coordination and flexibility.
The spine is the body’s foundation; when it is correctly aligned, your body will function in an optimal state of wellness. During your first visit, Dr. Sherwood will conduct a spinal exam to check for misalignments known as subluxations.
We will also check for palpation of the surrounding muscles, fascia, ligaments and tendons. Using the results from your full orthopedic and neurological exam, our Decatur chiropractor will create a custom treatment program to relieve your pain and restore mobility to your body.
Dr. Sherwood believes in no-nonsense, whole food nutrition that nourishes the body from within. Our chiropractor follows a Paleo-vegan diet focused on micro and macro-nutrients found primarily in animal-based foods, organic fruits and organic vegetables. Dr. Sherwood respects all food philosophies and works closely with each patient to identify the small dietary changes that can make a big impact for overall health. Our Decatur nutrition counseling can boost energy, support the body's natural healing process after injury, and help patients maintain a healthy weight for life.
