Dedication to Chiropractic Care
He is a renowned Asheville Chiropractor and is dedicated to providing Chiropractic Care to those who experience suffering through cervical imbalance or other upper cervical conditions.
He graduated with Doctor of Chiropractic in 1995, aged 40. He finished his clinical requirements for his studies a semester earlier and participated in an off-campus internship. He had the opportunity to work for seven months with Dr. Roy Sweat, iconoclast, and pioneer in the Chiropractic profession. With the blessing of Doctor Sweat, he worked with other doctors as a field consultant. In this project, he helped other doctors to establish Atlas Orthogonal in their offices.
This unique opportunity to have studied with the founding father of the discipline is what David credits as the reason for his expertise at his clinic. With the encouragement and support of Dr. Sweat, he co-authored two articles that were published with one of them being published in a journal that was peer referenced at the time.
Why Choose Orthogonal Treatment From This Asheville Chiropractor
Orthogonal Treatment is focused on the prevention, treatment, and diagnosis of conditions and injuries associated with the nervous and musculoskeletal with greater emphasis on the spine. This is an alternative treatment to choose if drugs are not your option. Chiropractic Treatment aims at improving and reducing painful symptoms. Chiropractic treatments also aim to educate patients to maintain their overall wellness and health by properly practicing ergonomics, exercises, and stretches.
You can think of it as complementary medicine meant to stimulate the body’s ability to heal itself naturally, without needing drugs, surgery or medication. The therapy focuses on the relationship between the nervous system and the spine.
Nerves found within the body can be affected by bio-mechanical derangement of the vertebral bones. When that happens, chiropractic reduces the pressure exerted on the neurological tissue in order to restore the structural integrity of the spinal cord and better the nervous system function to restore the well being of the patient. A chiropractor re-establishes the integrity of the spine and improves the function of the nervous system.
The chiropractic doctor reduces the pressure on the neurological tissues. This helps promote the structural integrity of the spine and improves the function of the nervous system. This is what will ultimately restore the well-being of the patient. The mobility of the spine is restored in this treatment, and it alleviates inflammation and irritation on the structures surrounding the spine.
