• K-Laser Therapy Helps Heal Injuries

    I have a personal story to share about the effectiveness of this treatment. Sadly, I have had many injuries. I DO NOT like to take pain meds. I look for treatment plans that get me healed as quickly and safely as possible, so that I can return to my active lifestyle. I have treated at North Atlanta Chiropractic center for injuries like: plantar fasciitits, tennis elbow, wrist pain, neck/back/shoulder pain. As part of my treatment plan, K-Laser Therapy was prescribed. The staff used this near-infrared wave-lengths of laser light to treat my injuries. I can tell you that my pain level was greatly reduced, AND my healing time was lessened by the addition of this therapy to any other PT that I was doing. The reduction in pain was a great relief that happened almost instantly. Healing more quickly, and with less pain, was the result I was looking for.

  • Hydrate for Health and Healing

    Medical studies have proven that water regulates your body temperature and lubricates your joints. It also helps transport nutrients to give you energy and keep you healthy. If you’re not properly hydrated, your body can’t perform at its highest level. You may experience fatigue, muscle cramps, dizziness, or more serious symptoms. When you are recovering from an injury, your body needs to be properly hydrated to help in the healing process. The doctors at North Atlanta Chiropractic Center would like to remind you to stay hydrated, especially in this very hot and humid summer season. It is also important to follow the recommended intake throughout the year.

    How much water should we drink each day? “The Institute of Medicine determined that an adequate intake (AI) for men is roughly about 13 cups (3 liters) of total beverages a day. The AI for women is about 9 cups (2.2 liters) of total beverages a day.”

    Make a healthy change by simply following the daily intake fluid requirements. It is easy to do, and will have many benefits for you. Try following this advice from the Nutrition Department of The Mayo Clinic :
