Services Provided by Our Chiropractor in Portsmouth

Chiropractic care uses a natural approach to improving your health and recovering from injuries. The goal is to use the power of your body to heal the body. Our main focus is positioning your spine and joints to support healthy nerve functions, blood flow and cellular repair. We also improve your overall health with our holistic approach by using a combination of the following services:

  • Chiropractic adjustments which are gentle and non-invasive. Dr. Clough manipulations your spine and joints to reduce nerve pressure and increase your range of motion. Also used to promote fast healing, chiropractic adjustments decrease inflammation and encourage repair at the cellular level.
  • Corrective exercises support your physical activities and personal goals. We show you how to properly strengthen and stretch your muscles. We also offer yoga classes with our physical therapist to balance your body.
  • Massage therapy reduces muscle tension and scar tissue to increase your mobility and decrease any inflammation from injuries.
  • Physical therapy helps to retrain muscles and joints to move freely and without pain.
  • Nutritional support carries over into your daily routine to ensure you are receiving the right amount of nutrients to support wellness, growth and injury repair.
  • Weight loss guidance is provided at Atlantic Chiropractic Center. We work with you to help you reach your healthy weight loss goals. We also encourage your attendance at our weekly weight loss support group meetings.
