Chiropractic Care

Most people wait until they are in pain before they Google “Chiropractor near me” lol.  Many people think of Chiropractic Care as only working on your bones and in fact we do adjust your bones but what we really hope to effect is your nervous system. The spine and your nervous system are so intertwined that when the spine is not moving correctly it will irritate the nerves which results in pain or some other symptom such as numbness or tingling or even ill health in one of your organs if that is where the irritated nerve goes.

Having a fully functional spine gives you the best chance possible for a fully functional nervous system which is the main factor in determining your level of health and well-being. This is why so many folks elect to continue getting an adjustment every month or so after their obvious symptoms are gone. Preventive maintenance for your body like changing the oil in your car.

An adjustment is what we call it when we put motion into your spine in a very specific way to increase the function of your spine which relieves your symptoms in most cases. There are different ways to adjust the spine and we use an instrument for several reasons.

Our Chiropractic Techniques

Dr. Durham uses the most popular “low force” chiropractic techniques in the world at Abbeville Family Healthcare.

First the Evaluation

The evaluation starts with you telling us about your pain and how it is effecting your daily life.  Then we will perform a full examination to find the root of the problem and from there set a course to help you get back on track.

This time-tested protocol tells us if problems exist and their location. It also helps us know when to adjust and when not to adjust.

The Adjusting Instrument

We use a small hand-held adjusting instrument called the Impulse IQ. This instrument offers many advantages for our patients. We think it is by far the best way to take care of you and get you feeling great fast!

This handheld instrument delivers a carefully measured and directed thrust that is many times faster than is possible by hand, so less force is needed.

The Follow Up

After your adjustment, we retest to make sure changes have been produced. Testing afterwards helps us deliver high-quality care and high levels of patient satisfaction.

Rehabilitation Services

Another of the supportive therapies available at Abbeville Family Healthcare.

At Abbeville Family Healthcare, we believe that a strong spine is a healthy spine and that spinal weakness gives rise to injury and pain.

So we have added specific exercises that will stretch and strengthen the ligaments and muscles that support your spine giving you longer lasting relief.

Using exercise as part of your care plan greatly accelerates the healing process so you “get well, stay well, and live well”…faster!

Electric Muscle Stimulation

Just one of the many supportive therapies avabile at our Abbeville location.

We use a form of electric muscle stimulation called Interferential Current. It causes muscles to contract and relax at a rate that breaks up muscle spasms and relieves pain.


We now offer Class IV Laser treatments.  This therapy, also known as photobiomodulation, is cutting edge pain management without the drugs. It is very effective at relieving painful joints as well as muscle pain and even tough pain such as Peripheral Neuropathy.  footreverse-1
