At Popwell & Stalnaker Chiropractic Center, we take pride in offering the highest quality of chiropractic care to our patients. Below is an example of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Jacksonville office.
By examining and treating the spine, we can often identify and remove interference in the nervous system, taking pressure of sensitive nerves and allowing you to feel better and function more properly. There are a multitude of adjusting techniques that can be used to treat all ages and types of spinal disorders. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Zack Stalnaker has years of training and experience in treating the spine and extremity bones in the body.
While all bones have muscles, ligaments, or tendons attached to them, soft tissue treatment is a necessary component in many cases where muscles are in spasm or creating pain. Muscle contractures, trigger points, tendonitis, and other soft tissue conditions respond wonderfully to therapeutic massage. Our therapist has over 15 years of experience in the field.
One of the goals to getting you well is teaching you how to stay that way. Usually, accidents or lifestyle habits are what lead people to our office. If something that you do on a day-to-day basis is causing you harm, we call it a repetitive microtrauma. Identifying these traumatic forces and learning how to balance them out will allow you to take responsibility for the health of your spine; requiring less visits to your chiropractor.
While chiropractors and medical doctor share an almost identical education in many areas, chiropractors branch off in the area of nutrition. Medical doctors get very little, if any, education in nutrition. They study pharmaceuticals and drugs. Chiropractors on the other hand take several hundred hours in nutrition and use that knowledge to reduce inflammation in the body, recognize nutritional shortcomings, and enhance the body’s ability to heal from the inside-out.
