AICA Atlanta and Breast Cancer Patient Support
The Chiropractors at AICA Atlanta are licensed physicians who have specific experience using non-invasive treatment procedures that restore breast cancer patients’ muscles and joints, particularly their spines.
Our Chiropractors work closely with our patients’ oncologists and the rest of their care teams to help relieve stress within their nervous system, without having to utilize prescription medication or invasive surgery.
When working together, our Chiropractors will develop a custom treatment plan that helps resolve bone, muscle, and joint problems, as well as completely restores nerve function.
Spinal manipulation or Chiropractic Adjustments is one of the most popular types of treatment our team uses when supporting breast cancer patients.
