Therapeutic Exercise

Therapeutic Exercise

Therapeutic exercise utilizes a variety of movements and exercises to help our patients with their physical ailments. It is effective at post-surgery rehabilitation, stretching, improving range of motion and flexibility, improving coordination. Therapeutic exercise is useful in conjunction with weight training or other highly physical activities because these activities can cause muscle weakness and soreness, which is improved with proper therapeutic exercise provided by Dr. LaDonna Bense.

The following exercises are just a small number of the therapeutic exercises we teach our patients how to correctly perform:

1. Hip roll

2. Knee to chest partial sit-up

3. Cat-camel

4. Back extension

5. Low back extension

6. Double leg lifts

7. Superman

8. Spinal rotation

9. Internal shoulder rotation

10. External shoulder rotation

We provide instructions for these exercises, and have patents perform them right here in our chiropractic office. Many patients also do the exercises at home in between appointment to further improve their results. They have been highly successful in helping after an injury or surgery, and improving their range of motion.

Custom Foot Orthotics

Custom Foot Orthotics

Here at Back In Line Chiropractic, we provide various services and treatments for our patients. One of the services we offer to patients is custom foot orthotics. These orthotics help improve the alignment of our patients by helping them walk without discomfort or pain.

Our patients find that custom foot orthotics help with many types of pain they are experiencing, including lower back, foot and knee pain. Custom foot orthotics also help with the functioning of the foot, including realigning the bones and taking pressure off other parts of their body.

When the feet are not properly aligned with the body and spine, people tend to walk in an awkward way. This causes them to put more pressure on other parts of their body, such as the hips, feet and ankles, shoulders, and the back. This pressure is relieved with the help of custom foot orthotics.

Once we create the orthotics for our patients, they last about a year before needing to be replaced. It is important to continue seeing us on a regular basis and bringing your orthotics with you so we can be sure they are still in good condition and still fitting you properly.

Visit Dr. LaDonna Bense in Dallas, GA to schedule an appointment for your new orthotics.

Adjustment/Manipulation

Adjustment/Manipulation

Here at Back in Line Chiropractic, we provide a variety of treatments for our patients. Among them are adjustments and manipulations, which are a common chiropractic care treatment. Many pain and injury issues our patients deal with are linked to the body being out of balance — which is frequently due to a lack of alignment in their spine. Vertebrae in the spine can become misaligned and affect not only the back, but nearly every process in the body, since everything is connected.

Adjustments, also known as manipulations, help move the vertebrae in the spine so that it is more properly aligned. This is done through manual manipulation by our chiropractor, Dr. LaDonna Bense, and can help with everything from back and shoulder pain to headaches to neck pain. Once one area of the body is improved, the nervous system is more balanced, helping with other issues as well.

We encourage all patients with any type of pain or discomfort to visit our Dallas, GA chiropractic office for adjustments and manipulations. If you think your pain might be due to your spine or are simply looking for natural alternatives, contact us today and schedule your first appointment. When you call, ask us about our new patient specials.

Muscle Pain

Muscle Pain

Muscle pain is a common occurrence among patients of Back in Line Chiropractic, and can be the result of many causes. Some patients have muscle pain and soreness from an overuse of the muscles, while others have chronic tension, sprains or other forms of injury or trauma. Chiropractic care for muscle pain helps patients find relief and acts as a great preventative measure with continued treatments.

Dr. LaDonna Bense offers the following chiropractic treatment options for muscle pain:

1. Therapeutic Massage – This type of massage helps to relieve the tension in the muscles by loosening them. With the relief of tension, the pain starts to subside.

2. Adjustments – Adjustments help realign the spine and can help with all types of pain, including muscle pain. In some patients, the muscle pain is actually a result of discs in the spine that are not aligned properly.

3. Exercise Tips – Dr. Bense also offers advice and tips for exercise, warm-ups and stretching to prevent further pain and soreness. Exercise is great for getting the blood circulating to ease muscle pain.

4. Dietary Recommendations – Our chiropractor also provides nutrition and diet advice to reduce and prevent muscle pain.

Patients who visit our Dallas, GA chiropractic office find that the more often they get chiropractic treatments, the less muscle pain they experience over time. This is because with chiropractic care, the body begins learning how to heal itself, reducing possible injuries.

Nutrition

Nutrition

Chiropractic care provides more than relief from pain, soreness and injuries; it can also be effective at helping people lose weight. Here at Back In Line Chiropractic, we provide tips and treatments to help with improving nutrition and losing weight. Poor nutrition can add to various types of pain, damage to the muscular system, strains and other types of injuries. Malnutrition can be caused by not consuming enough nutritional foods, or overconsumption of bad foods. This creates more physical stress on the body, and leads to pain and possible injury.

Dr. LaDonna Bense believes that chiropractic care should include nutrition education to help prevent many of the injuries and cases of chronic pain her patients experience. She provides help and tips for her patients who want to learn about nutrition, what they should be eating, and how their diet affects their body’s ability to heal. This includes encouraging eating and drinking food and beverages chock-full of antioxidants, which helps reduce aches and pains, as well foods and herbs that have anti-inflammatory medicinal properties, like ginger and pomegranates.

We provide consultant appointments for patients who are having pain or strains and can’t find the root cause of it. For many of them, their nutrition is the culprit. Find out more about nutrition in Dallas, GA by calling us today.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient form of Chinese medicine that involves using thin needles in different acupuncture points of the body. Needling these various acupuncture points can stimulate the body’s nervous system to release chemicals in the brain, spinal cord, and muscles.

Many patients come to Back In Line Chiropractic for acupuncture for treating medical conditions and reducing pain. It can help with respiratory, digestive, neurological, muscular and fertility disorders, aside from helping with chronic pain or discomfort. Some patients in Dallas, GA get acupuncture to coincide with their physician’s plan for treating a disorder, while others simply want an alternative to painkillers for the pain they experience every day.

Before your first acupuncture appointment, Dr. LaDonna Bense recommends the following:

  • Don’t eat a large meal before acupuncture treatment.
  • Don’t drink alcoholic beverages up to six hours before treatment.
  • Make time for rest at home following the appointment.
  • Continue following your physician’s instructions, such as taking prescribed medications.
  • Don’t engage in strenuous physical activity before getting acupuncture.

As long as patients follow these tips, and the others provided by Dr. Bense, they can find acupuncture very useful. Some patients will visit us for a single visit, while others continue getting acupuncture on a regular basis. Contact our office 770-505-5665 to find out more about the benefits of this type of treatment.

Chiropractic Massage

Chiropractic Massage

The body’s central nervous system is responsible for a lot more than people realize. That is why many patients come to Back In Line Chiropractic for insomnia, surgery recovery or chronic pain, and find that what they are really struggling with is a problem with their nervous system. Chiropractic massage is a great method for helping strengthen and balance the nervous system, which then can improve circulation, increase flexibility, and help with the connective tissues of the body. Chiropractic massage is also helpful in the healing and recovery process — not to mention its soothing capabilities on the mind.

Many patients who get chiropractic massage from Dr. LaDonna Bense find their pain reduced and that they start experiencing less injuries and problems over time. They no longer have the same repetitive motion injuries from their job, their headaches are gone, they sleep better and they have outstanding physical and emotional relaxation. This is because massage in our clinic helps the body to begin healing itself from the inside, out.

Chiropractic massage helps not just with injuries, pain, strains or sore muscles, but also with overall body wellness and health. Call us today at 770-505-5665 or visit our website http://www.yourbackinlinenow.com to book your Dallas, GA chiropractic massage.
