Chiropractic Care in Asheville
Adjustments and Manipulation
Adjustments, or manipulation as they're sometimes referred to, are the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons, ranging from normal daily activity, to trauma such as a car accident.
When these vertebrae are out of place, it has an overall negative systemic effect from muscular to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow of all nerves and systems in the body from the brain, we can't function at our peak.
We can provide chiropractic adjustments in Asheville to help return you to optimal function.
Being in a car accident is a very difficult situation on a number of levels. Your pain sometimes gets put in second-place to the aftermath of having your car at the mechanic, the stress of dealing with insurance, and potentially missing work.
But it's incredibly important to not ignore your health after a car accident, as auto-related injury might be present whether you initially feel it or not. While you are in a hurry to get your car fixed and everything 'back to normal,' make sure to see your Asheville chiropractor before you make any major decisions. There could be underlying injuries that a minor stiff neck is not allowing you to uncover. A car accident is a major event, and the trauma that comes from it could be significant.
Merrimon Family Chiropractic specializes in soft and hard tissue problems, including the results that could come from the trauma from a car accident, in Asheville or while you were traveling out of town. Make sure you see your chiropractor to get a full examination.

Locating the source of your injury could be the difference between fixing an issue and living with something for a long period of time.

Have you experienced a sport-related injury in Asheville? Merrimon Family Chiropractic can help.
Professional sports figures are consistently reaching new heights in their professional careers. With each passing year, new records are shattered and the human body is pushed to its limits. Every day, athletes follow suit by pushing themselves harder, choosing rigorous training patterns, and taking their diets to a new level. Despite the meticulous care and training that athletes take, they experience musculoskeletal injuries.
Chiropractors are to athletes just who Cardiologists are to those who suffer with cardiovascular disease. Chiropractors have specific training in evaluating and treating the injuries and ailments of athletes. Chiropractors can treat an injured athlete more effectively than a medical doctor, who is not well versed in sports injuries. In addition to treating athletic injuries, the chiropractor is skilled in aiding the athlete in injury prevention.
Athletes who receive treatment from a medical doctor find themselves frequently benched and on the sidelines. Others play and then spend hours after the game with ice packs and taking pain medication. Medical doctors do not treat the body as an integrated system, but rather treat each injury individually.
It has been said that chiropractic care most closely relates to the needs of the entire athlete because special attention is given to the spine, joints, muscles, tendons, and nerves. Chiropractic care ensures that all pieces of the musculoskeletal system are working in harmony and in their healthiest, most natural state.
Professional athletes see such a great value in chiropractic treatment that they regularly have chiropractic well visits to prevent injuries. Whether you're an athlete or weekend warrior, chiropractic care will enable you to reach peak performance, without breaking yourself.
