Services & Benefits

Corrective Chiropractic Care

Dr. Smith is committed to helping you restore the proper alignment of your spine, leaving you better equipped to thrive everyday and prevent illness. We take your health seriously, and do not guess at which treatments will benefit you. Your visit to our clinic involves a thorough analysis of your spine, typically including a digital nerve analysis, posture assessment, range-of-motion, orthopedic and neurological exam, and if necessary, x-rays.

Utilizing advanced corrective techniques and protocols, we aim to correct spinal misalignment and imbalances. The methods of correction we provide are based on Pettibon and CLEAR approaches, which require a highly skilled, highly trained Doctor of Chiropractic .

Since adaptation of muscular structures is a process that takes place over an extended period of time, repetition of positive forces into the affected tissues is necessary to effectively achieve and maintain postural correction.
These simple techniques alone can often be quite effective, as demonstrated in a 1986 study by Klein and Sobel of neck pain patients, in which 59 percent received significant long-term relief from performing postural exercises for their conditions.

Using an Arthrostim (a hand held adjusting tool) Dr. Smith's skilled-hands can deliver beneficial mechanical forces that would be difficult, or impossible, to produce on their own.For example, the ArthroStim® instrument can produce a dozen spring-cushioned mini-toggle-recoil™ thrusts per second. Rapid, repetitive thrusting enables a practitioner to distribute the overall thrusting force over a series of thrusts. This helps to reduce the amount of peak force that would be required using a single thrust. This can be a great advantage for working with clients who are sensitive, or in pain.

Pediatric and Prenatal Chiropractic

The Webster Technique has been observed clinically to be associated with improved pregnancy outcomes. The International Chiropractic
Pediatric Association (ICPA) was founded by Dr. Larry Webster to promote and defend the chiropractic care of children, pregnant
women and general family wellness care through patient advocacy, post-graduate education and research. The ICPA is
the oldest free-standing organization in the chiropractic profession to teach and certify chiropractors on the Webster
Technique.

  • Improve pelvic balance and function. With a properly aligned pelvis, baby has more room and space to descend into the optimal fetal position.
  • A misaligned pelvis may also make it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery.
  • A report by the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found there was an 82% success rate for the Webster Technique, meaning it successfully primed the uterus to allow the baby to turn on its own from a breech position to head down

Webster Certified

Buford, Georgia: Dr. Smith has completed the requirements needed to be officially Webster certified
by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) and is acknowledged by the ICPA
as proficient in this specific chiropractic skill. Dr. Tim Smith will better serve pregnant
women who are preparing for safer and easier birth outcomes.

Webster certified doctors are taught gentle adjusting techniques, individual case management
systems and evidence-informed practice to best care for pregnant women. In addition to this,
doctors are given an in-depth view of birth and are provided with the necessary skills and
resources to support women who want safer natural births.
Dr. Smith has undergone a written and a clinical exam for Webster Certification proficiency.
This technique includes a specific chiropractic pelvic analysis and accompanying adjustment.
The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of pelvic misalignment and to restore
normal function and balance in the pelvis.
In the care of pregnant women, this pelvic misalignment may lead to difficult labor for the
mother (i.e. dystocia). Dystocia, as defined by William’s Obstetrics, is caused by inadequate
uterine function, pelvic misalignment, and baby malposition. Preliminary research indicates
that chiropractic adjustments using the Webster Technique may have a positive effect on birth
outcomes by addressing these three causes of dystocia
This certification enables Dr. Smith to expand his range of care to individuals throughout
pregnancy with excellence and in accordance with evidence-informed practice. “As a loving parent and chiropractor, I am thrilled to provide
enhanced care for expecting mothers in the Buford and surrounding areas,” shares Dr. Smith.

I will warn that it is very spicy.  If you don’t like it quite so spicy, you can tone it down by using regular chili powder instead of the chipotle pepper powder.
