We know that achieving that means we need to find the root cause of your problems, and not just mask your pain. We observe and proclaim that a well-adjusted body is not only healthier but is often more adaptive and able to deal with the stresses and the pleasures of life.
Dr. Crown witnesses and respects the innate intelligence and design of the body and its willingness to thrive and recover. Getting your body aligned and balanced is a critical step in living a responsible, vigorous life.
We see many conditions and symptoms that can be managed through our non-invasive care. Our solutions and proactive measures will contribute to your body’s continued wellness. We firmly adhere to the principles and advice we pass on to our patients, and if we can do it, we know you can too.
Some of the most common reasons people visit our clinic include:
BACK PAIN, LOW BACK PAIN, AND NECK PAIN
Back and neck pain can stem from subluxations, overused muscles, an accident, inactivity, poor posture, and even a hefty cough. Our spine is integral to the body, and without its full function, other areas of muscle groups and joints can pay a significant price. Don’t let it get that far. If your back or neck are in distress, we want to find the cause and get you the comfort and correction your body needs.
AUTO INJURY AND PERSONAL INJURY
Those involved in a motor vehicular collision can suffer from sharp, acute pain, dull tingling sensations, and loss of mobility. No matter the severity of your discomfort, seeing a chiropractor will help the body heal naturally as it strengthens and revitalizes.
The world has seen a quick change in the workplace environment, and with that has come new complications for many remote workers. Drs. Hoffman will talk with you about your at-home workspace and advise you on how to find comfort that allows you to support your spine and be more productive.
HEALTHY LIFESTYLE ADVICE
From holistic in-office chiropractic care to nutrition to stress-reducing exercises, we offer various ways to take control of your health in the safest, most effective way. Advising on preventative care and generating the life you desire is our top priority.
There’s nothing worse than believing that you have to suffer through a life of pain and discomfort. Especially when help can be so easily attained. We know that chiropractic care could make a huge difference in your health and well-being. Contact us at our Gastonia office today to set up your consultation.
Dr. Crown uses the most up-to-date technology and instruments as well as traditional chiropractic techniques to get your body where it needs to be as quickly as possible. Our methods are safe and effective and are backed by years of research and innovation.
We utilize a range of services to find out how to best support each individual patient.
Some of our more prominent services include:
Manually adjusting the spine and other targeted joints throughout the body using a quick, controlled thrust is often the best, most reliable way to get your body back on track and in its natural state. These manipulations are painless but will aggressively remedy pain and restore balance.
In addition, these adjustments remove subluxations. Subluxations often represent barriers to normal neurological function and control and can prevent your body from working at its maximum potential. Chiropractors are specially trained to identify and adjust subluxations, often allowing the patient to experience more function and less pain.
INSTRUMENT ASSISTED THERAPIES
Using tools designed explicitly to target an affected joint, Drs. Crown and Katherine will efficiently provide relief and function to misaligned, often painful joints, that have been subluxated. We proudly provide Activator Technique and utilize the impulse adjusting instrument when clinically indicated.
This tape applied to a hurt area of the body, allows the injured area to rest and restore, providing better circulation and stabilization. We will minimize pain and restore movement and function to areas of the body that are suffering due to overuse, strain, fatigue, and more.
Acupuncture has been used for centuries to activate the body’s natural healing process. It can relieve pain, restore overall body ability, and help manage stress.
SUMMUS MEDICAL LASER
Using the precision of a laser, Drs. Crown and Katherine will find and target areas suffering from inflammation, pain, motion and flexibility loss, and more. This solution is painless and often offers immediate relief from discomfort. Our doctors are the only clinicians in the Gastonia area certified in using this effective service. Additionally, this exciting new therapy has significant clinical effectiveness with treating neuropathy, an often debilitating and disabling neurological degeneration. The Gastonia office offers an introduction to neuropathy laser therapy at no charge to a prospective patient.
THERAPEUTIC EXERCISES AND STRETCHES
Our office knows the power of a strong, functioning, equipped body. We will find therapeutic exercises and stretches that meet your goals and abilities, so you can achieve the strength and efficiency your body is intended to have.
If you’re in need of a Department of Transportation physical, we are glad to provide one for you. Dr. Crown is a Certified Medical Examiner, credentialled by the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (NRCME). The Gastonia office provides comprehensive DOT evaluation, urinalysis as required, and A1c testing for diabetic patients seeking DOT licensure.
Ensuring your safety and the safety of others on the road is a vital part of your job when working for DOT, and we are proud to help you get healthy and maintain your health so you can be of service safely.
Upon your initial visit with us, be prepared to discuss the history of your health, your current pain points, your lifestyle and activity level, your nutrition intake, and your goals. Dr. Crown will then provide a comprehensive examination that will let him know the best way to approach your corrective and palliative strategy. Additionally, you will receive a detailed written report, your x-rays will be presented (if taken), and any questions you have will be answered thoroughly. If you are a candidate for chiropractic care, your care plan will begin as soon as possible.
Feel confident in knowing that you’re in a safe space and can be honest with our team. We encourage you to share all necessary clinical and personal challenges so we can create a corrective and supportive plan that will fully address your needs and assist you in obtaining the quality of life you want.
We know your time is valuable, and for that reason, we will work hard to make sure your appointments are booked at times that work for your schedule. Our team strives to have a “zero minute waiting” policy.
Upon arrival for your appointment, you will be promptly greeted in the lobby by one of our technical chiropractic assistants. Once checked in for your appointment, you will be immediately directed to an adjusting room, a therapy application, or an exercise training area. We want your experience in our office to far exceed your expectations of what a trip to a doctor’s office should be like.
A little effort can make a big difference in both body and mind. Let the healing begin.
