Services & Techniques
We provide expert spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing both manual and instrument-assisted chiropractic techniques. As chiropractors who care about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, our doctors have years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.
At Carter Chiropractic Center, we teach our patients how to perform special exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractors will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser (low level laser) is a non-invasive treatment which uses a non-thermal infrared light to reduce inflammation, increase joint mobility, stimulate healing and decrease both short and long term pain. Cold laser is used extensively for injury, pain management and musculoskeletal problems. Studies have concluded that low-level laser therapy has shown significant results in reduction of pain and improving function in subjects with chronic plantar fasciitis and is more effective than ultrasound therapy with exercises on chronic plantar fasciitis. Low level laser therapy is used to treat a range of pathologies including:
• Soft tissue injuries
• All types of trauma
• Wounds and fractures
• Chronic and acute pain
• Depression and anxiety
• Nerve problems
• Acute and chronic sprain/strains
• Head, face and mouth pain
• Sinus problems and headaches
• Muscle pain and trigger points
• Degenerative disc conditions
• Strokes and other brain injuries
• Side effects chemotherapy

Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which actually relieves musculo-skeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!
