• LightForce Class IV Deep Tissue Laser

    March 26, 2014 11:01 AM

    Dr. Schmid and Dr. Ransone are pleased to announce we are now using a LightForce Class IV Deep Tissue Laser.  Treatments are fast, safe, painless and most patients experience results after only a few sessions. Deep Tissue Laser Therapy allows for deeper tissue penetration, resulting in fast, efficient and consistent results.  Reduce pain, inflammation, and accelerate healing. Laser therapy generates a photochemical response in damaged tissue.  This process stimulates healing on a cellular level by enabling cells to more rapidly produce energy. 
     
    We are seeing great results with: Lumbar & Sciatic Pain, Wrist Pain, Foot & Ankle Pain, Elbow & Joint Pain, Muscle Spasms, Cervical Pain, and Knee and Joint Pain.
     
    Laser Therapy is used as an essential pain management tool by the NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, FIFA and Olympic teams.  LightForce lasers are the preferred laser.

  • Chiropractic Partners of Durham would like to welcome Dr. Aaron Rickelman

    March 26, 2014 10:31 AM

    Dr. Micheal Krasnov and the staff of the Chiropractic Partners of Durham would like to welcome Dr. Aaron Rickelman to the staff.

    Dr. Rickelman is a December 2013 graduate of Logan University College of Chiropractic. At Logan, Dr. Rickelman received extensive training in the field of Chiropractic Medicine including further study in anatomy, diagnostic imaging, and case management. He additional was involved in many continuing education courses that focused in greater detail on motion palpation treatment techniques, treating human faulty movement patterns, and dynamic neuromuscular stabilization treatments. While in school, Dr. Rickelman had the opportunity to work many events with numerous sports medicine groups. Additionally, he was invited to provide treatment to the athletes of the University of Missouri on a routine basis and was a participating student clinician to the athletes of the 2011 Pan American Olympic Games held in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Dr. Rickelman also had the opportunity to treat many veterans suffering from debilitating injuries seeking the ability to stay involved with athletics via the Disabled Athletes Sports Association.

    Outside of clinical care, Dr. Rickelman has been invited to co-instruct lectures with many other chiropractors in post concussive management, motion palpation technique assessment/treatment, as well as conservative treatment and management of temporomandibular joint disorders.

    While attending Logan University, not only did Dr. Rickelman receive an education but he met the love of his life, Dr. Abbi Sunner. They will be married on July 19, 2014 in Granger, IA, a small town near Abbi’s hometown.  Both are very active in the outdoors, one of the many reasons they chose to move to North Carolina.  They enjoy time on the water, cycling, running, traveling, and numerous other adventure sports.  Dr. Rickelman especially delights in being involved in the wakeboarding and boating culture in the area. The couple is also a member of Crosspointe Church in Cary where they enjoy volunteering and being plugged into biblical study groups.

    Movement is health and health is performance.  Dr. Rickelman works one on one with each of his patients, improving their condition to keep them enjoying all their passions in life.  He does this by diligently assessing the movement of each joint, muscle, ligament, and tendon in the body, whether in the back or in an extremity, to ensure optimal function and performance.  The patient may be a desk jockey or a professional athlete, but each one is an athlete in their own regard and Dr. Rickelman focuses on helping the “athlete” in everyone meet their peak performance.

  • Words from Dr. Wallace

    March 17, 2014 12:22 PM

    We all hope to find a career or service that is fulfilling and gives us a sense of purpose. You know you have discovered yours when you love waking up to it every day; I found this in Chiropractic!  I love my work and find gratification in sharing my knowledge and abilities, and supporting others in reaching better physical and mental health.  Abstaining from my work has been the most difficult part of this experience; I miss every day and each patient!  What I did not expect was the return of favor I am blessed with!  The cards, words of encouragement, and prayers that each of you have sent have been overwhelming. I am blessed to have, as Dr. Silver has expressed, some of the greatest patients!

    Now on to my status! I am getting stronger every day; I hate sitting still, but realize it is part of the process. As most would expect, I’m getting back to my old self and am managing to annoy my wife! While my body has a few more scars now, my spirit is stronger than ever. I am doing everything in my power to be back with all of you very soon.

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

  • News regarding Dr. Brook Wallace of Fuquay Varina

    February 28, 2014 03:55 PM

    We feel it is an important time to share with all of our patients some news about Dr. Wallace as we’d like for you to hear from us directly.

    On Friday February 21st Dr. Brook Wallace of Fuquay Varina, was in a head-on collision and sustained significant injuries. His neck was broken and required surgery, and he has a concussion and various lacerations and tissue damage.  He is expected to make a complete recovery, but will need to be out of the office for approximately two months.

    The doctors of Chiropractic Partners have been working at length with Tami & Beverly to ensure ongoing continuity of care for all of our patients until Dr. Wallace returns. Dr. Wallace’s primary concern at this time is your ability to receive quality chiropractic care with a full schedule of appointments available to you. To that end, he has hand-picked two experienced and well-respected chiropractors that he trusts to provide you with a high level of care and service. Dr. Silver and Dr. Coronado will be here as the primary chiropractors with some coverage by Dr. Wallace’s partners.

    Our office will be open regular business hours for the vast majority of this time. You may schedule appointments at your typical preferred days and times, or drop by for a walk-in at any time. Tami and Beverly will be in the office as usual to answer questions and assist you with anything you might need. Adolfo, our massage therapist, will also be working his normal schedule.

    Finally, we have already received many requests to help with meals and comments about contacting Dr. Wallace. We understand you all have connections with Dr. Wallace and the natural response when someone we care about is hurting is to help. The very best help you can offer at this point is to give him and his family some time and space, so we are asking everyone to please refrain from contacting them directly; they have everything they need and can handle at this time. Should you still wish to do something, please feel free to mail a personal note to the office address or stop by and leave it in our card basket. We will make sure he receives them on a regular basis to keep him cheered up.

    Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions. We will send an update on Dr. Wallace’s recovery by email in the coming weeks, and will post to the Chiropractic Partners Facebook page as well, so be sure to “Like” us if you haven’t already.

  • Actively healing from a broken ankle

    February 27, 2014 02:01 PM

    I have been a patient of chiropractic medicine since I was young. My family is all very tall and there is history of acute scoliosis, sciatica, and other such ailments on both sides of my family. My parents wanted to ensure I was growing as straight and strong as possible so my first visit was around 6 years old.
    We worked with our knowledgeable and effective local New Jersey doctor of Chiropractic through my youth. I participated in a variety of activities and sports: gymnastics, softball, basketball, dance, and cheerleading.

    I moved from New Jersey to Raleigh in 2007.  Upon moving here, I needed to find a new trusted chiropractor right away. With anxiety, I set up an appointment with a local doctor I found randomly on the Internet. Almost instantly at this first visit, I knew his manners and technique were not what I was looking for. Then a friend mentioned that she uses a chiropractor and raved about his professionalism and efficacy for her sciatic pain.  She had been his client for several years, so I set up my first appointment with Dr. Armstrong at Chiropractic Partners in Cary that afternoon.  

    How it has helped! I have seen Dr. Armstrong for a variety of issues, such as: sciatica, lower back, neck and shoulder pain, broken ankle, and uneven hip alignment. These have always been areas of issue with me. Importantly, he will share the ‘don’ts' and well as the ‘dos’ associated with my particular situation in order for me to maximize my own wellness. I always have a very relieved feeling after my visits, and my body will tell me when I need to go and get adjusted again!
