At Back to Health Chiropractic & Natural Health Care, we take great pride in providing the finest Medical & Chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different services we offer in our Charleston office.
Platelet Rich Plasma
If you have a tendon or ligament injury and traditional methods have not provided relief, then PRP therapy may be the solution. The procedure is less aggressive and less expensive than surgery. It will heal tissue with minimal or no scarring, and alleviates further degeneration of the tissues. No ill effects have been reported in any of the many studies executed. This process uses the patient’s own blood thereby eliminating any chance of rejection response and minimizes the likelihood of infection.
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Charlie Schuster has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
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.
Cold Laser Therapy
Have you tried other therapies or even surgery to get out of pain? Let us introduce you to Low Level Laser Therapy (3LT®). We are proud to say our office is a low level Laser provider for the Erchonia laser that has been proven through a double-blind clinical trial to decrease pain by 66%.
How Does Low Level Laser Therapy (3LT®) Work?
The effects of Low Level Laser Therapy (3LT®) are photochemical (cold), not thermal. Hot lasers in the medical world are used for surgical precision while cold lasers are used for healing precision. During treatment of the tissue with the 635nm low level laser, an interaction between cells and photons takes place— a photochemical reaction. Photons from the laser affect the tissue at the cellular level. The cold laser enters the tissue, alters cell membrane permeability, and at the cellular level is absorbed in the mitochondria. The mitochondria are the “Powerhouse” of the cells and make ATP which is needed for the life enhancement process of every cell.
The Erchonia Low Level Laser was the 1st Laser to Receive FDA 510(k) Market Clearance for the Treatment of Chronic Pain. Call us to schedule a FREE DEMO and learn how Low Level Laser Therapy can Reduce Pain and Increase Range of Motion, 217-345-9600.
