What does chiropractic care involve?

Chiropractic care is focused on holistic approaches aimed at promoting natural healing responses to relieve pain and other issues, including nerve impingement and circulation issues that can cause or contribute to chronic and acute ailments. Chiropractors are skilled in an array of treatment approaches, including spinal adjustments, postural corrections, therapeutic massage and exercise, nutritional counseling and lifestyle guidance to help every patient achieve his or her health goals and enjoy optimal wellness at every age and every stage of life.

What kinds of issues can be treated with chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care is often associated with the treatment of musculoskeletal issues like herniated discs, back pain, neck pain and joint pain, as well as nerve entrapment syndromes like carpal tunnel syndrome or tennis elbow. And while chiropractic care is very effective in treating and even preventing these conditions, it can be used to treat a far wider array of issues, including: allergies asthma vertigo and dizziness gastrointestinal and digestive disorders respiratory issues depression and anxiety immunity issues high blood pressure hormonal issues Nutritional support and other treatment modalities can be customized for each patient, helping patients of all ages avoid the need for medication and other more aggressive treatment options by promoting natural healing responses.

Are spinal adjustments safe?

Yes, spinal adjustments are based on an in-depth understanding of the spine and related anatomy and use a specific sequence of motions and applied force to gently coax the spine into its proper alignment. The techniques used in chiropractic spinal adjustments are designed to focus on the spine bones and joints while leaving surrounding tissues unharmed. Routine adjustments can help keep the spine properly aligned so pain and other symptoms can be avoided.

Do chiropractors provide well care and preventive care?

Yes, in addition to providing treatments aimed at correcting acute issues like pain and other symptoms, chiropractic care can be very effective in promoting better immunity and helping patients stay healthy. Plus, routine adjustments and related care can help patients avoid injuries and enjoy better athletic performance and improved physical activity.

Esther: Before I came into the chiropractor to get aligned and adjustments and get my life on track, I could not go up and down the steps without going sideways and one step at a time. Now, I can go up and down the steps normal. I do hold onto the handrail, but it’s normal and I haven’t done that for years and I’m really excited about that.

Interviewer: Good. I’m so glad to hear.

Esther: So that’s just one of the big changes.

Interviewer: Well, that’s great. Any other changes you’d like to talk about?

Esther: Yeah, there’s a lot of pain in my lower back that is slowly subsiding and down the right buttocks, down the whole leg, the sciatic nerve on the right side. It’s getting to the point where I have very little pain and it’s getting duller all the time. And I’m just feeling all over really great compared to what I did when I first came in here in November and I’m thankful.

Interviewer: Good. I’m really glad to hear that, and thank you for taking the time out to talk with us today.

Esther: You’re welcome.

Well, I started chiropractic care because I was having pains in my arms and hands, wasn’t able to lift anything, grasp anything, and it was very, very painful. I couldn’t do everyday things. Since I’ve been coming to Dr. Rashidian, my mobility has been restored. I can lift things. I can do normal things without even thinking. So, I’m feeling a 110% better than when I started, and I would recommend to anyone who wants to feel better in your life, to do the normal things you normally do, come see Dr. Rashidian.

Interviewer: So, Miss Teresa, what was it that made you want to start coming to get adjusted?

Teresa: Well, I was at hot mess actually. I had a lot of problems. My hip was in pain for a year, and I couldn’t walk up and down stairs or get in and out of my car or roll over in bed without it hurting and without literally picking up my leg and lifting it. So, that was a big thing. And I had a stiff neck, bad range of motion, and knee problems.

Interviewer: Wow, and how have you been feeling since you’ve been getting adjusted?

Teresa: I was so shocked that literally, within two weeks all three of those problems were almost completely resolved.

Interviewer: Wow.

Teresa: My hip problem was a yearlong problem, and it was gone in two weeks.

Interviewer: Wow that’s so cool.

Teresa: I know.

Interviewer: What would you say to someone who’s thinking about getting adjusted?

Teresa: I would say absolutely do it. I had no idea that you could get resolutions so quickly and almost so completely, so fast.

Interviewer: Thank you so much.

Our family has a long term relationship with MAC. Our needs were addressed directly in our first visits and we were given an detailed program to follow.

At The Mid Atlantic Clinic of Chiropractic, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Frederick office.

We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing state of the art chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. Our doctors have years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.

We teach our patients special “blueprint” exercises designed just for them 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 by as much as 30-40%. 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 them reach true health and wellness is a collaborative effort between our professionals and our patients.

We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Dr. Amir Rashidian can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.

Cox® Technic is a spinal manipulation that relieves back pain, leg pain, neck pain, arm pain, and a host of other spinal related conditions…disc herniation, spinal stenosis, post-surgical continued pain, and pregnancy-related back pain.

Cox Technic is non-surgical, doctor-controlled, hands-on spinal manipulation performed with the patient lying on The Cox Table, a proprietary, specially designed chiropractic instrument. This table permits the effective administration of flexion-distraction and decompression adjustment and manipulation.

Well-researched and documented flexion-distraction and decompression help relieve spinal pain and return patients to their desired quality of life by …

  • dropping intradiscal pressure to as low as -192mm Hg
  • widening the spinal canal foraminal area by 28%
  • reducing pressure on the spinal nerves
  • returning motion to the spinal joints

The goal of Cox Technic is to help the spinal pain patient go from “pain” to “no pain” as quickly as possible following the “rule of 50%” which governs the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management.

Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide detailed and comprehensive screenings at our office. Contact us today to arrange a screening for yourself and your family members.

Support for your entire body

Most orthotic companies only support one arch. When only one arch is being supported the problem shifts to another part of your body. Functional orthotics support the three interconnected arches of your foot, the plantar vault. The structural support for the entire body’s equilibrium is gained from your feet’s plantar vault.

Specifically made for YOU

Unlike generic, over-the-counter orthotics, our Functional orthotics are individually designed for your unique postural problems — not just problems with your feet. We believe that correcting imbalances in your feet can properly align your spine and pelvis.
Our Functional orthotics offer more than just short-term symptom relief. They also promote whole-body wellness for your life.
