Advanced Spinal Fitness treats each individual based on their personal health assessment and the need for positive results. Our office recognizes that our patients have busy schedules and need effective and convenient care.
Unlike most chiropractic offices, the main emphasis at ASF is on spinal correction. Many people have a spine that has changed shape compared to normal. When the shape of the spine is altered, the body will "lock up" and manifest symptoms. Rather than releasing the same tight spots over and over again, ASF believes that fixing the shape of the spine makes the most sense.
In order to help reshape the spine, several methods are used in the corrective care. Mirror image adjustments and home exercises are extra steps that lead to symptom relief, increased function, and correction of the shape of the spine to normal or near-normal.
Types of Adjustments
As for the actual adjustment, each body needs a different approach. At ASF, care is administered according to what is appropriate for the condition of the body and patient preference. Adjustments that are non-audible (no cracking noise) can be given. Conversely, our doctors care for many muscular athletes, and can easily apply adequate force for a muscular physique. Our doctors encourage their patients to give feedback on what adjustments are most comfortable and effective for them as they experience the different styles.
Our doctors are skilled not just in spinal adjustments, but also in extremity care. The shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, and feet are often sources of pain, especially for active people. In fact, many patients have back trouble because of injuries in the hips, knees, or feet. Working on the back exclusively may provide some relief, but the problem cannot be solved without addressing the extremity that is creating the issue. At ASF, our number one goal is always to get to the cause of the problem.
Advanced Spinal Fitness is the best place in the Lake Norman area, and one of the best in the state, for pregnancy and pediatric chiropractic care. Many chiropractors take care of infants, children, and pregnant women, but all of them have the special equipment, skills, and education to most comfortably and safely accommodate the needs of these groups. Pregnant and pediatric patients are commonplace at ASF, not an exception.
During pregnancy, a woman should have the best of everything not only for her child but herself. Adding chiropractic care to your prenatal care regimen helps prepare your body for the safest, most comfortable birth possible.
A body that is balanced and aligned allows your baby a more direct path through the birth canal and can minimize complications. In fact, research shows that mothers under chiropractic care during pregnancy have an average of four hours shorter labor than those not under chiropractic care.
ASF is a recognized part of the local prenatal community and expecting mothers are regularly referred by area OB/GYNS, pediatricians, doulas, and birth educators. If you are pregnant, thinking of becoming pregnant or having difficulty becoming pregnant, there is a role for chiropractic in your healthcare routine.

The treatment at Advanced Spinal Fitness complements high-level athletic training and conditioning and helps to improve vision, reflexes, hand-eye coordination, speed, agility, concentration, and other components necessary to manifest a competitive advantage.
Although the doctors at ASF excel at taking your health and fitness to the next level, we also know that symptoms and injuries are a very real part of the athletic lifestyle. ASF boasts precise computerized diagnostic technology, high-speed radiology, and experienced, comprehensive care for pain relief and injury management.
ASF and Motorsports
The doctors at ASF are enjoying, continuing, and expanding their involvement in motorsports as they help members of the NASCAR community achieve maximum health and performance both at the track and at their facility in Mooresville.
It takes more than just a well-tuned, optimized race car to win in some of the most competitive race series. The drivers must also be well-tuned and optimized. When fractions of a second separate the winner from the rest of the field, maximum physical fitness and function are crucial. Performance-oriented health care is a necessary component in the pursuit of superior results.
ASF has expanded its offerings and now has a doctor who has extensive training and experience in the field of Functional Nutrition. At ASF, we have always believed that what you put into your body is one of the most important aspects of overall health. We recommend the highest quality supplements for our patients and teach people to eat the real food that is best for their particular situation.

Cold laser therapy uses red and infrared light for the relief of pain, to accelerate healing, and to decrease inflammation. When the light source is placed against the skin, the photons penetrate into the tissue and get absorbed by the mitochondria, the energy-producing part of a cell. The extra energy that is produced fuels many positive healing responses resulting in accelerated cell and tissue healing in the area exposed to the laser.
This cold laser therapy has been successfully used to treat a broad range of medical conditions, including musculoskeletal problems, arthritis, and sports injuries. The laser therapy is low intensity, meaning it produces no heat and in fact, usually produces no perceptible sensation at all.

Pelvic Massage Therapy is a technique used to help restore the health and general well-being of the female pelvis. This gentle and non-invasive technique was created to help you reconnect to your divine feminine and to allow your pelvis, a highly emotional space, to re-open to healing and balance. This massage technique is done abdominally and requires NO invasive internal work.
Pelvic massage is for women who have adhesions in their reproductive tract. Adhesions act like glue – disrupting the function of affected organs. The massage involves gentle stretching to loosen tightened areas of soft tissue and is continued until the tension is released. The goal is to decrease adhesions in and around the organs, ligaments, muscles, joints, and support structures of the pelvis, abdomen, hips, and lower back. It is gentle and non-invasive.
Retraining pelvic organs to return to their normal status and function is the common sense approach to increasing your chance of conceiving and improving your health at the same time.
Pelvic Massage Therapy for pelvic pain is done over a period of 4-6 weeks and can be broken into twelve 30-minute sessions or six 1-hour sessions (the length of the sessions will depend on the patient's tolerance to therapy). Appropriate referral to a Uro/GYN physician can be given for further evaluation, if needed.
Pelvic massage has been shown to help the following issues:
Adhesions develop through a woman’s lifetime in various ways:
Chronic pelvic pain can be debilitating and difficult to handle on a daily basis. Typically pelvic pain can occur within the structures surrounding the female reproductive organs such as the urinary bladder, bowel, musculature, ligaments, and bones. Also, pain could be coming from the reproductive organs themselves.
Women who have dealt with any of the following may suffer from pelvic pain:

With so many choices available today, deciding which nutritional products to take can be a difficult task, to say the least. Most people use a try-it-and-see approach, which can be a costly and time-consuming process. But there’s a much better way to decide from among the multitude of wellness options available to you. By getting a ZYTO Biosurvey, you can find products your body is most coherent with, thus reducing the guesswork and subjectivity that comes with choosing foods, supplements, and other personal wellness products.
Generally, a biosurvey consists of stressors and balancers; stressors to determine the most divergent items, and balancers to determine which items are most likely to bring stressors back into range, or balance.
ZYTO reports may also reveal correlations, patterns, and trends in the items that you were scanned for. Your doctor will use this information to ask better questions and reveal additional key information to help you remove the barriers preventing you from achieving optimal wellness.
The ZYTO Biosurvey works by measuring Galvanic Response. Similar to detecting truth and lies when hooked up to a polygraph machine, ZYTO biocommunication technology can determine if the body’s response to a digital signature of an actual stimulus is in range or out of range (and by how much) compared to the baseline reading. Digital signatures of specific nutritional products, for example, are posed as questions to the body. The ZYTO software analyzes these responses in relation to galvanic skin response data gathered from the ZYTO Hand Cradle. The administration of the test is safe, easy, painless, and only takes about 15 minutes.
