Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic Care | Sugar Mill Chiropractic and Acupuncture

Chiropractic is a branch of the healing arts which is concerned with maintenance of human health and prevention of disease processes. Doctors of Chiropractic are fully licensed physicians who consider the body as an integrated being and give special attention to the physiological and biochemical aspects of life including structural, spinal, musculoskeletal, neurological, vascular, nutritional, emotional and environmental relationships. Chiropractic is a drug-free, non-surgical science and as such, does not include pharmaceuticals or invasive surgery.

Chiropractic is based on the idea of removing imbalances, both structural and postural in order to promote your body to heal itself. For this to happen, the network of nerves and signals from your brain must be encouraged to flow freely without interruption. Chiropractors have the ability and skill to remove misalignments or interruptions and allow the body to perform to its optimal vitality.

Chiropractic physicians undergo rigorous education which typically begins with a standard four year undergraduate education followed by four years of Chiropractic College. Chiropractic college is similar to traditional medical program with the first few years focused on basic science work (anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pathology, microbiology, pharmacology, etc.) followed by clinical work.

Allowing a chiropractor to get you back on track both chemically and structurally will bring your body back to the proper state it should be in to perform at its peak.

Types of Chiropractic Therapies Offered At Sugar Mill

Diversified Technique

The Diversified Technique involves the manipulation and adjustment of the spinal column. This is the most commonly used of all chiropractic techniques and is the one most familiar to patients. The diversified technique of adjustment consists of manual adjustments applied swiftly as the spine and joints are adjusted into alignment. This technique is the most efficient and effective form of manual spinal manipulation and alignment can often be achieved in one chiropractic session.

Instrument Assisted Therapy

Our Doctors of Chiropractic utilize several modes of technology to assist in delivering chiropractic adjustments. We are trained in the Graston Technique®, an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization. Sugar Mill Chiropractic and Acupuncture also utilizes the Impulse Adjuster, which is a device that creates gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments to the joints of the spine and extremities to relieve pain and restore function. In addition, we use Activator Adjusting Instruments (AAI) or Activator Method Chiropractic Techniques (AMCT) which can also treat patients low back pain, neck pain, TMJ disorders and muscle spasms and pain.

Electrical Muscle Stimulation Therapy

Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) is a therapy used by chiropractors to promote better circulation, increase or improve range of motion, reducing inflammation, relieving muscle spasms and relieving back pain. Our chiropractors use EMS electrodes to deliver impulses to different muscle groups to be stimulated.


Sugar Mill Chiropractic and Acupuncture also provides ultrasound therapy. Ultrasound waves create deep heat therapy created by sound waves. When applied to soft tissues and joints, ultrasound therapy can create the feeling of a micro-massage that helps accelerate the healing process by reducing swelling, increasing blood flow, and decreasing pain, stiffness, and spasms.

Common Conditions Treated by our Doctors at Sugar Mill Chiropractic:


Neck, Mid-Back or Lower Back Pain, Disc Problems

Pain along the spinal column in your neck or back is usually caused by misalignments or subluxations of your discs and vertebrae. Even a small misalignment can cause pain because it causes pressure on your nerves. Left untreated, these misalignments can cause muscle spasms and chronic pain. Our Doctors of Chiropractic perform adjustments that properly align your spine so that pressure on joints and nerves is released. It is a direct treatment for the cause of the pain, not a temporary relief like pain relievers or massage. If you are experiencing back or neck pain visit us today.

Arm or Leg Pain, Elbow, Wrist, Knee or Ankle complaints

Chiropractic care can alleviate pain by releasing pressure on the nervous system with proper alignment. We are concerned with the body as a whole and not just the affected area. We aim to restore and maintain proper movement and functionality to increase your overall well being.  Chiropractic can restore proper joint movement, helping to ensure that you use proper motion preventing injury to other parts of your body.


Sciatica is a condition that results when the sciatic nerve becomes irritated. Bulging discs, spinal misalignments and muscle spasms can each cause increased pressure on the sciatic nerve. When this pressure happens it can cause pain, numbness, and weakness in the lower back and legs. In order for your chiropractic doctor to properly treat your sciatica, the cause of the condition needs to be diagnosed.

Pinched Nerve

When a nerve is compressed or squeezed it is called a pinched nerve. This can be caused by spinal subluxations, herniated or bulging discs, or other factors. Increased pressure, aka a pinched nerve, can cause pain, inflammation and possible muscle spasms. The pressure on the nerve must be relieved in order to alleviate your pinched nerve pain. Our doctors can examine you and the cause of the pain and perform an adjustment to relieve the pain by properly aligning the spine and addressing the cause of the pain.


Tension and tightness in the neck and shoulders is the direct cause of headaches. 80% of all headaches originate from the neck. Tension can cause misalignments in the vertebrae of your neck, resulting in pain. With a headache a person usually feels pain starting at the base of the skull which radiates toward the forehead, eyeballs and temples. A chiropractic adjustment can realign the vertebrae in your neck and massage of the neck and shoulder muscles can release tension. Chiropractic care from the doctors of Sugar Mill Chiropractic and Acupuncture can help eliminate the cause of your headaches rather than offering a temporary relief from the symptoms.


Chiropractic can help reduce the severity and the frequency of your allergies and allows your body to be better equipped to fight against allergies. Chiropractic adjustments allow the immune system to work at a higher level, making it easier to fight off infections while recognizing allergens. If you suffer from allergies, chiropractic care can help you. Schedule an appointment today.

Carpal Tunnel symptoms include pain, numbness, weakness, or a burning sensation in the hands, wrist, arms and neck. This condition is most commonly associated with people who are frequently using a computer. When typing on a computer the repetitive motion combined with poor posture can cause carpal tunnel syndrome. Your chiropractor can relieve the pain in your hands and wrists with concentrated spinal and joint adjustments.
