Services We Offer at the Chiropractic Wellness Center of Cary
We offer a wide variety of chiropractic care at our center. Chiropractic care includes a variety of chiropractic adjustments, physiotherapy, spinal decompression therapy, pregnancy care, Graston technique, pediatric care, cold laser therapy, spinal and postural screenings, and our 12 Weeks to Better Posture program.
Chiropractic adjustments generally involve our chiropractor in Cary using her hands to gently realign the spine and neck with short, swift movements. Having your neck and spine adjusted to their proper place can take off pressure from muscles, ligaments, and other soft tissue. This can help alleviate and eliminate pain from those and other areas. Below are more techniques and services we offer here at Chiropractic Wellness Center of Cary.
Spinal Decompression Therapy
Spinal decompression therapy involves using a special table to stretch out the spine, relieving pressure and pain from the spine and nearby areas. Chronic lower back pain, sciatica, arthritis, disc herniations, and stenosis can all benefit from spinal decompression therapy.
The Graston Technique
The Graston technique involves the use of special instruments during chiropractic therapy sessions. An Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) helps diagnose and treat abnormalities and scars in soft tissue. IASTM helps avoid overusing the hands-on soft tissue, which can cause more pain.
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy is another way to heal soft tissue. This therapeutic method of healing can help with chronic and acute pain, inflammation, nerve function, speed up healing and clot formation, stimulate the immune system, and more. Whiplash, arthritis, neck and back pain, sprains and strains, and fibromyalgia are just a few conditions that can benefit from cold laser therapy.
12 Weeks to Better Posture
Our 12 Weeks to Better Posture program is a great way to become more aware and improve your posture, which can help you avoid neck and back issues later on in life. Getting a posture and spinal screening is a great way to get started.

We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. 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 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.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you?

Soft tissue injuries can be debilitating and frustrating. Graston Technique® is successful in effectively treating soft tissue conditions, whether they are chronic, acute, or post surgical. Graston technique® can help you enjoy life again.
Studies have found that about half of all expectant mothers develop low-back pain at some point during their pregnancies. This is especially true during the third trimester when the baby's body gains the most weight. Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy can relieve and even prevent the pain and discomfort frequently experienced in pregnancy, and creates an environment for an easier, safer delivery. In addition to providing chiropractic care for pregnant patients, we offer the following additional items and services:
- Prenatal vitamins
- Maternity supports
- Nutritional counseling
- Webster's Breech Baby Technique
Children are susceptible to trauma in their spines from their various activities and events that they participate in. These microtraumas can cause the vertebrae of the spine to misalign, which places pressure on their spinal nerves. This misalignment of the spine decreases their bodies' ability to function normally. Although symptoms, such as pain and malfunction may not show up for years, injury to their vital nervous system can have a lifetime of damaging effects. Chiropractic care may be able to help your child if they are suffering with the following conditions:
- Ear Infections
- Bed Wetting
- Sports related injuries

Golf Injury & Rehabilitation Program
Today more than ever, major tour players are embracing golf fitness as a way to improve their golf performance. Golf is a sport that requires the player to have flexibility, strength, balance, co-ordination, muscular endurance, and aerobic endurance. Golfers who do not have these requirements will be restricted in their golf swing, which will not only limit their ability to score, but will put them at risk for injuries. We offer the following services for golfers in our office:
- Golf fitness evaluation
- Golf conditioning
- Golf Injury and Rehabilitation Progra
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.
We offer customized orthotics that are designed for each individual's unique postural problems. We use state-of-the-art 3-D digital scanning equipment which demonstrates how the patients' foot imbalances affect their postural stability.
