Welcome to the Marceca Chiropractic Center website. Our goal is to provide you with the vital information that you will need to make the right choice on your path to better health. What do Chiropractors do and what conditions do we treat here at the Marceca Chiropractic Center? We hope this information proves helpful, feel free to call us with any specific questions you may have. There are no silly questions, be proactive with your health. Thanks for stopping by.
We have covered, in detail, some of the more common ailments we provide care for on a frequent basis. This allows us to provide our patients and prospective patients with information about their health condition so that they may make more informed decisions in respect to their health. Additionally, having a better grasp of what is wrong has been shown to significantly increase the outcome of your care.
If you’re suffering from lower back pain you’re not alone. According to Wright State University School of Medicine, lower back pain is the number one reason for disability in the U.S. Often times the pain will progress and radiate into one or both legs along the sciatic nerve.
In addition, there has been over a 1400 % increase in the number of spinal fusions performed in the U.S. This, despite the fact that spinal surgery is dangerous, potentially life threatening and in most cases ineffective.
The care we provide is unique and is specifically aimed at identifying and successfully treating and managing lower back conditions. Even the most serious spinal conditions resulting from ruptured or herniated discs, spinal stenosis, degenerated spines, previous spinal surgery, can be safely managed or fully corrected through our safe and effective method of care.
Computer use, back packs, poor postural habits and stress are the leading cause of mid back pain. Our treatments primarily focus on the cause of your problems, which not only results in rapid and effective pain-relief, but most importantly, minimizes the chance of future mid back back problems.
Some of the more common factors in the development of neck problems is lack of treatment or incomplete or improper treatment of automotive accident and work related injuries, past injuries, poor posture, prolonged sitting, and lack of periodic spinal alignments. Long term injuries to the neck, if not treated properly can result in pain radiating into the arms and hands.
Fortunately, most individuals suffering from neck problems or radiating pain into the arms and hands will find our care extremely beneficial. Unlike prescription drugs, epidural injections and most therapies, our chiropractic procedures address the cause of your neck problems, not simply the symptoms. We are committed to long term benefits. Best of all, our care is safe and effective, even with the most serious spinal conditions- ruptured or herniated discs, protruded discs, spinal stenosis, degenerated spines … there is no risk or side effects!
The adjustment is a safe, natural, noninvasive procedure used by the chiropractor to restore and improve health. Learning the art of adjusting is a skill that requires years of study and practice. Chiropractic doctors are the only health care professionals trained to deliver the chiropractic adjustment. Spinal adjustments by any other individual or health care professional have been shown to be dangerous and less effective.
In basic terms, the spinal adjustment refers to the process in which the doctor of chiropractic skillfully applies a gentle and controlled force into one or more “subluxated” vertebrae of the spine. The adjustment is delivered using the hands only.
Spinal adjustments are applied to certain vertebrae of the spine which are no longer in their proper position or where functioning has become impaired. Vertebrae which lose their normal position or proper motion are commonly termed vertebral subluxations. The chiropractor uses a number of unique tests and procedures to determine which, if any, vertebrae are subluxated. Subluxations which can cause permanent disc and spinal degeneration can be silent for many years, so even those who are not experiencing back or neck discomfort should have a spinal check-up.
Adjusting helps correct vertebral subluxations. The initial goal of the adjustment is to restore movement and flexibility to the specific areas of the spine that have become “locked” either due to trauma or genetic predisposition. Correcting subluxations reduces pain and inflammation, reduces muscle spasm and tension, normalizes spinal biomechanics and more importantly, can remove nerve irritation and interference which can improve overall health and wellness of the individual. Chiropractic adjustments are the only way to eliminate vertebral subluxations and only the chiropractor is trained to detect subluxations and deliver the chiropractic spinal adjustment to correct subluxations.
We provide quality and affordable chiropractic care to Fayetteville, GA
Dr. Michael Marceca’s passion to correct spines and improve lives as a Chiropractor started at Life Chiropractic College in 1981. While still in Chiropractic College Dr. Marceca worked with the best and most respected Chiropractors in the state. Long before Doctor Marceca graduated from Chiropractic School he was extremely proficient in chiropractic adjusting.
Dr. Mike’s technical adjusting skills and optimal spinal correction were brought to new heights after completing a program of Chiropractic Biophysics and Precision Spinal Correction Technique- the protocol of correcting and maintaining the proper posture and strongest structure of the spine. This specific method of spinal correction, developed by engineers and dedicated chiropractors, represents the most advanced form of chiropractic care available.
I had terrible neck pain and a stiff neck. I saw an orthopedist from Hughston Clinic and had had 3 spinal epidurals. The doctors then told me I had 2 herniated discs and that I would have to have back surgery. The surgery was scheduled, however a friend referred me to Dr. Marceca to see if I had any others option. Today I feel GREAT – the best I’ve felt in years, without having to have surgery! Stay with Dr. Marceca’s recommendations and you too will feel great.
My back pain was so intense I could not position myself comfortably. I had gone to an Acupuncturist, another chiropractor, the hospital a few times and had a MRI. Still… NO relief! The doctors wanted to start epidural shots. My sister begged me to come see Dr. Marceca before starting the shots. I did, and boy am I glad I didn’t get the shots! The first visit here was different from any other chiropractic office. That first adjustment gave me instant relief. The wait is not long; Dr. Marceca doesn’t waste time. He locates your problem area and properly adjusts it. After seeing Dr. Marceca for a few weeks, I feel like dancing! I am able to run and work out every day. Before I was so limited in what I could do. I feel like myself again.
I had daily back pain. I had difficulty walking first thing in the morning. I could not even run because it felt like my spine was locked up. I took Motrin & Tylenol every day. After seeing Dr. Marceca I felt wonderful! I had pain relief after the first adjustment. I have been taking dance classes & now have a full range of motion in my spine.
