Charlotte Spine & Pain Relief Center's licensed chiropractors want to make it clear that they're healers, not treaters. That means that they use a combination of medical knowledge and technology to heal pain rather than soothe it temporarily. To that end, they specialize in traditional chiropractic treatments, such as spinal adjustments, as well as laser-based therapies; the cold laser, for one, shines painless, high-intensity light over achy areas to boost cells' power to heal and repair themselves.
People afflicted with chronic pains and sore muscles come to licensed massage therapist Jason Colvard for relief, relying on treatments such as therapeutic bodywork, neuromuscular therapy, and Thai yoga therapy. Colvard draws on these modalities as he mends sinews damaged by injuries, repetitive motions, or stress placed on them during professional slouching competitions. He can also use bodywork techniques to help healthy athletes boost their performance.
Doctor of Chiropractic Eric Anderson studied his way to the top of his class while at Logan College of Chiropractic, and later became certified by The National Board of Chiropractic Examiners and licensed in both North and South Carolina. At Anderson Family Chiropractic, Dr. Eric Anderson helps his clients suffering from back pain, soft tissue injuries, and misaligned spines. His knowledgeable staffers assist him with services that include massage therapy, electrical stimulation, acupuncture, and cryotherapy. They also supply patients with vitamin and herbal supplements. All services aim to ease pain-ridden bones, muscles, and joints ailing from sporting injuries, auto accidents, and picking up that potato chip that fell.
Doctors of Chiropractics John and Mechelle started their award-winning practice in 1990, but their greatest collaboration was yet to come. In 1992, the pair married, fusing their professional and personal lives into a practice powered by love and affection. Today, the doctors realign runaway vertebrae and relieve symptoms throughout whole bodies by treating spines and nervous systems.
The team specializes in bringing aid to those most in need. The doctors specialize in pediatric care, and have also worked with patients suffering from Alzheimer’s, attention deficit disorder, autism, asthma, and cancer. Dr. John estimates that he’s performed one million adjustments and seen 10,000 patients over the course of his career, a list that includes newborns, 93-year-olds, and professional athletes, such as championship limbo dancers.
When not at the office, Drs. John and Mechelle keep their skills sharp by attending seminars on chiropractic biophysics. They’re also passionate about community outreach: the two adjust the vertebrae of book spines in the local library, deliver lectures at local churches, and maintain active involvement in the Children’s Miracle Network. Regular patients are also invited to attend their educational workshops.
Dr. Philip Mahan educates clients and corrects crooked spines with an array of chiropractic techniques. During each exam and consultation, Dr. Mahan reviews each client's medical history, current ailments, and grade-school report cards before taking x-rays, if necessary. Next, technicians concoct detailed reports with the ProAdjuster, which pinpoints any problem areas and creates computer-generated displays to facilitate accurate assessments and track progress during future visits. Clients can opt for a therapeutic massage session to address soft-tissue problems, muscle spasms, scar tissue, or simply to quell the ancient rivalry between muscles and spines.
