At Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) in Atlanta, we believe that integrative treatments like chiropractic care may be beneficial to cancer patients’ comfort and overall health during treatment. Chiropractic care may improve quality of life and overall well-being. Chiropractors at our Atlanta hospital, located in Newnan, Georgia, use various techniques to reduce bone, muscle or joint pain to help patients avoid the use of drugs or surgical treatment. After a complete examination and diagnosis, chiropractors at CTCA® Atlanta may recommend various therapeutic approaches, including manual manipulation of the body and spine.
Dr. James Rosenberg, DC, is the Chief of Chiropractic Medicine at our Atlanta hospital. As a board-certified chiropractor, he has nearly 30 years of experience in the health care field. Patients undergoing cancer treatments such as radiation therapy and chemotherapy may feel discomfort due to stress on the musculoskeletal system. This may result in lower back pain, sciatica, neck problems and headaches. Dr. Rosenberg and other chiropractic care clinicians at our Georgia hospital provide therapeutic options designed to increase mobility, flexibility, strength and function. Manual techniques may also help reduce stress and pain, improving patients’ comfort level.
Before consulting with patients, our Atlanta chiropractors review patients’ medical history and records, including diagnostic imaging tests like X-rays. They then may perform a physical exam to identify the area of pain or discomfort. Our chiropractors examine the patient’s spine and posture and discuss symptoms that may have arisen. Through spinal adjustments and non-invasive procedures, our chiropractors in Georgia may help to manage and alleviate pain. They may also make recommendations, including lifestyle changes, to help patients avoid strain on their muscles, bones and joints.
