At Popwell Scota Spine Center, it is our goal to provide the finest chiropractic care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Greenville office.
We provide traditional chiropractic adjustments with a hands on approach. The basic premise of chiropractic is nearly the same today as when chiropractic was first developed. What has changed is the avalibility of new equipment that helps the doctor treat the patient more comfortably and effectively. We choose the appropriate adjustment type for each patient's individual needs. As Doctors of Chiropractic, Dr. Popwell and Dr. Scota have years of training and practice experience in administering spinal adjustments.
Where applicable, we teach our patients specific stretches and exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each patient is a whole person, and helping patients reach true health and wellness is a collaborative effort between our professionals and our patients.
Our basic nutritional premise is: "God makes good food. Man makes convenient food." We also do NOT believe in every new nutritional fad that comes along, nor do we believe that health comes in pill or supplement form. We recognize that the subject of dietary changes can be quite personal. "You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink." For those patients that are interested, we may provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance a patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Dr. Popwell and Dr. Scota can get you started in the right direction of healthier eating, but only if you want to!
Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to address the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aiding in recovery and range of motion. Combined with chiropractic treatment, we find massage therapy to be especially effective.
At the Popwell Scota Spine Center, we have multiple skilled massage therapists that cover most of our office hours. Massage is by appointment and at the direction of our Doctors.
