We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing “state of the art” chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Our Doctors have years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.
At Ridgewalk Chiropractic & Massage, we teach our patients how to perform special “blueprint” exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
Many of our patients come to see our doctors to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. But…… many patients realize it is more beneficial to be proactive vs. reactive with regards to their health…. Our docotrs will address each patient’s specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to “coach” our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our Ridgewalk chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complementary to their chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient’s unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient’s range of motion, while also aiding in a patient’s recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!

Pediatric & Prenatal Care
It all starts in pregnancy! Dr. Surma is Certified by the ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association) in prenatal care and the Webster Technique and is a member of the American Pregnancy Association. Sacral misalignment causes the tightening and torsion of specific pelvic muscles and ligaments. It is these tense muscles and ligaments and their constraining effect on the uterus which prevents the baby from comfortably assuming the best possible position for birth. The Webster Technique is defined as a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment that reduces interference to the nerve system and facilitates biomechanical balance in pelvic structures, muscles and ligaments. This has been shown to reduce the effects of intrauterine constraint, allowing the baby to get into the best possible position for birth.
It is strongly recommended by the ICPA instructors of this technique that this specific analysis and adjustment of the sacrum be used throughout pregnancy, to detect imbalance and optimize pelvic biomechanics in preparation for safer, easier births. Because of the effect the chiropractic adjustment has on all body functions by reducing nerve system stress, pregnant mothers should have their spines checked regularly throughout pregnancy, optimizing health benefits for both the mother and baby.
So, in a nut shell, getting adjusted regularly throughout the pregnancy can help the mother’s pelvis prepare for birth and allow the baby it be in the best possible position for birth. Aside from theses obvious benefits, the expectant mother is usually getting quite uncomfortable is the later stages of the pregnancy and routine spinal adjustments can help ease the normal pains associated with pregnancy such as low back pain, sciatica (numbness or shooting pains in the legs) and mid-back pain just to name a few.

Auto Accident Injuries
Our chiropractor in Woodstock, GA treats all types of auto accident injuries, including neck and back pain and whiplash.
Ridgewalk Chiropractic and Massage is Your Auto Accident Chiropractic Clinic
Car accidents lead to back pain and whiplash that can make daily functioning and working difficult. Thankfully, our auto accident chiropractic clinic can diagnose your spinal injuries, reduce your pain, and get you back on the path to wellness.
To understand how we can help you heal, it is important to know what happens in a car accident that leads to auto accident injuries, even if no external wounds are visible. When you are driving in a car, the car and your body are moving at the same speed. In a car accident, the car is forcefully stopped by another vehicle or object, but your body remains in motion until it impacts the seatbelt, airbag or steering wheel. The initial impact reduces some of your body’s speed, but it also causes a ricochet effect where you bounce back and forth several times. This bouncing and jerking throws your head, neck and spine out of alignment and strains the muscles and tendons in your back.
If these skeletal and muscular injuries are left untreated, they can lead to debilitating pain and decrease your range of motion. Our chiropractor in Woodstock, GA diagnose the source of your pain, locate the areas of injury and help you heal through our comprehensive chiropractic care that includes manual and actuator adjustments, massage, and pulsed laser therapy.
Get Your Auto Accident Injuries Treated By Our Chiropractor in Woodstock
Our chiropractor in Woodstock, GA treats many types of auto accident injuries, including muscle and tendon strains, back pain, and whiplash. Treatment starts with a thorough physical examination and evaluation along with a brief medical history that includes when the car accident occurred, how long you have been experiencing pain, and where the pain is located.
From there, our auto accident chiropractic team will recommend a course of treatment that includes chiropractic adjustments and massage as well as personalized lifestyle advice. If whiplash is suspected, chiropractic adjustments and massage can reduce your pain by loosening the knots and sore areas in your neck and upper back and realigning the vertebrae to reduce pressure on the nerves.
Multiple sessions may be needed to completely remove the pain and heal the injury. In general, our chiropractor in Woodstock needs to perform two to three adjustments per week at our auto accident chiropractic clinic for at least a month before the patient experiences long-term pain relief and begins healing.
