The Farragut Chiropractic Center treats patients with a variety of pain management issues, including both injury-induced and repetitive motion problems. With 30 years of clinical experience, Dr. Mackler uses a variety of chiropractic techniques tailored to the patient's needs and comfort, in combination with physiotherapy modalities, such as traction, and myofascial release methods, such as post isometric relaxation and Graston Technique. Injuries, repetitive movements, and postural problems lead to musculoskeletal imbalances that cause faulty movement patterns. These patterns can create a cycle of pain, tightness, and weakness that is hard to break.
For the best long-term results, patients are encouraged to be an active part of their care and are educated about their individual rehabilitation process. We will help you identify and understand behaviors and postures that may be causing or aggravating the presenting problem. The office workstation is a frequent culprit in creating musculo-ligamentous imbalances in the spine. Patients are taught exercises and stretches that help to rebalance and rehabilitate problem areas while reinforcing the adjustments. Treatments and training are tailored to the unique needs of each patient.
While most patients seek relief from back, neck, shoulder, hip, or headache pain, a wide variety of conditions respond well to rebalancing the spine and its neuromusculoskeletal structures.
