Weddington Chiropractic Wellness Center
At Weddington Chiropractic Wellness Center at Blakeney established since 1982, our founder, Dr. Merritt’s philosophy is, “NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE ABILITY OF THE BODY TO HEAL!” Our doctors of chiropractic are specialists in integrating neuromusculoskeletal disorders with physiological conditions. Dr. Lisa Merritt, a second generation chiropractor, and Dr. Sara Butkovich, are expertly trained to diagnose and treat the many neuromusculoskeletal injuries that may occur during sports or recreational activities, work related impairments or in your daily life. Our doctors utilize over 15 different conservative techniques and will assess which one is best for you.
At our center, Dr. Merritt and Dr. Butkovich apply chiropractic principles to balance the nervous system that processes the physical, emotional and chemical stressors of life. Over time, a patient often alters the normal position or flexibility of the spinal vertebrae. This causes nerve interference that can affect the musculoskeletal functions. Chiropractic treatment is designed to restore normal joint alignment and enhance 100% nerve function of every system in the body. Instead of the “band aid” effect, Dr. Merritt and Dr. Butkovich get to the core of the problem. Gentle manipulative therapy or an “adjustment” rapidly stabilizes the patient to a productive status. Our doctors also provide guidance with advice designed to reduce work-related injuries, proper lifting procedures and therapeutic stretching exercises.
Soft Tissue Techniques
Our chiropractic and soft tissue techniques include: Low Force Activator, Diversified, Gonstead, Thompson, Pediatric care, Webster Pregnancy Technique and the original Palmer technique. They are safe and appropriate methods for all ages for removal of nerve interference and allow optimum health to be maintained. Our conservative methods of care are diagnosed on your health history, age, current condition, lifestyle habits, a thorough exam and if necessary, x-rays or an MRI.
