Chiropractic is a licensed health care profession that emphasizes the body's ability to heal itself. Treatment typically involves manual therapy, often including spinal and extremity adjustments. Other forms of treatment, such as exercise, nutritional, and lifestyle counseling, may be used as well during your treatment at New Life Wellness in Myrtle Beach.
Your Myrtle Beach Chiropractor Dr. Alex Rogers approaches patient care in a manner similar to that used in conventional medicine. Dr. Rogers interviews his patient, obtains a detailed health history, performs an examination, does appropriate tests, and develops a working diagnosis.
Then Dr. Rogers then develops a management plan, starts treatment, and monitors your progress. New Life Wellness often treats problems related to the musculoskeletal system but is trained in working with other systems as well.
The manual chiropractic treatment methods used by New Life Wellness are unique when compared to traditional chiropractic. These treatments range from stretching and sustained pressure to specific joint adjustments, which are usually delivered by hand and involve a quick and gentle thrust. Dr. Rogers uses an extremely specific reflex system, the Torque Release Technique, to determine exactly which treatments are needed each visit. The purpose of the adjustments is to improve joint motion and restore function. Adjustments are most commonly done on the spine, but other parts of the body may also be treated in this way.
