Chiropractic Care

Life is pretty rough on your spine.  Whether you sit all day at the computer for work, play competitive sports or are doing outdoor work to maintain your yard, your spine has to deal with a lot of stress.  

This stress often causes the spine to lock up and not move in its normal patterns.  This lack of normal motion leads to joint dysfunction and puts on wanted stress on your muscles, tendons and ligaments.  This dysfunction shows up in the form of pain, decreased range of motion, and altered nervous system function. 

Spinal adjustments can be extremely effective at helping you find quick relief from pain and restore your range of motion, plus some positive “side effects” that may include increased energy, improved sleep, and better overall performance. Whether you’re recovering from an injury, looking to stay active for years to come, or looking to achieve peak human performance, spinal adjustments are a smart choice to improve your quality of life.

How we adjust your spine:

Many people who first come to our Raleigh, NC office are afraid that an adjustment is going to hurt. They were also scared we were going to twist their neck or “crack” their back.  

Often they have put off going to see a chiropractor for this reason. We understand.

Our office specializes in the latest spinal adjusting technology.  This technology allows us to deliver the safest, gentlest, most specific chiropractic adjustment. 

We used 3 types of instruments to adjust the spine (Activator, Impulse Instrument, and Arthrostim) all 3 instruments use so much speed (100x faster than a human can adjust) to reduce the amount of force necessary to restore that normal motion to the spine.

So you get all the benefits and results of getting your spine adjusted without all the twisting, popping or cracking of your neck or back.

Exercise Prescription

Once we begin to restore normal movement to your spinal joints with chiropractic care, we next need to address the poor movement patterns and the muscle tightness and imbalances that accompany the problem. 

With my background in exercise physiology, I  will give you the appropriate home exercises and stretches to complement your chiropractic care and help you get back to optimal health faster.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy has been shown to help muscles relax, increase circulation and deliver powerful endorphins to the body.

We have an excellent massage therapist in our office trained in many of the most advanced forms of soft tissue work including: cupping, scraping, deep tissue, TMJ work and more.  

Should you choose to get a massage, we communicate directly with the therapist so you get a tailored massage in the exact areas you need to heal and recover quicker. 

Percussion Treatment

To address the soft tissue adhesions as well as chronic muscle tension we use a vibracuss percussion instrument. This instrument taps on the muscles at a high velocity providing a deep vibration penetration that increases circulation, decreases muscle spasms and assists in breaking up scar tissue.  With better blood flow and lymphatic flow to the involved area, we get quicker healing.


Intersegmental Traction

Restoring normal spinal joint motion is critical to your recovery.  This rolling table helps to create tractioning or separation between the individual spinal segments, which when combined with your chiropractic adjustment  help improve and restore spinal motion.

Cold Laser Therapy

Specialized alternative care

Harnessing the power of light, the class 3 cold laser, uses the red spectrum of light to reduce spasm, reduce pain, reduce inflammation as well as speed the overall healing process. 

The cold laser is used by most professional sports teams as a therapy to get the athlete back to peak performance.  In our office, you don’t have to be a pro athlete to get all the benefits of this breakthrough technology.

Whether you are a stay at home mom, a person tied to a desk all day, a weekend warrior, an elite athlete or anything in between, we have the years of experience, and the latest technology and services to get you well quickly, and keep you well, so you can live your best life.

Dr. Ashforth has been wonderful for me and my children! His methods are extremely gentle, yet very effective. I never have trouble getting an appointment, and the office is very family-friendly. – Carrie W. // Raleigh, NC
