Chiropractic treatment is a natural, safe way to help the body health itself. It has been helpful in the management of a variety of symptoms such as headaches, migraines, menstrual cramps, numbness, stomach problems, low back and neck pain as well as, associated hand, arm, and leg pain. It also is highly effective with neurological conditions such as sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, herniated discs, and whiplash.
Chiropractors adjust vertebral subluxations, which is when the bones in the spine are misaligned and need to go back to their proper place. Subluxations are the link between the alignment of the spine and the function of the body. They cause nerves to be irritated and inflamed and consequently impact the nervous system's ability to carry messages from the brain to the organs and back. Fixing a subluxation can not only increase these messages but also help the body heal itself by releasing its optimal ability.
While the main focus of chiropractic care in our office is concentrated on the removal of vertebral subluxations, we also focus on the body functioning as a whole unit. It is our philosophy to look at the entire body and the systems of the body for reasons why dysfunction may be occurring.
Quite often symptoms are simply a red flag telling you that there is an underlying problem that needs to be addressed and that something is going on within the body. Thus, we look to the whole body for a cause of the symptom and this means, the spine, organs, blood, nervous system, and emotional being as well as, how food, nutrients, and minerals are interacting or lacking within.
Our office also specializes in managing conditions such as:

Atlantic Coast Chiropractic is a welcoming and calm family environment. Drs. Carl and Lisa Suslenti are kind, gentle, and ready to spend the time needed with you to achieve your health goals.
