SPINE ALIGN CHIROPRACTIC
Dr. Lisa Prusinski and Dr. Mark Vellan are Greenville chiropractors who have served Greenville, NC and surrounding areas in Pitt County since 1994.
Their main focus, as chiropractors, is on a mechanical approach to health, adjusting the spine to remove pressure on the nerves while addressing the muscular component with various therapies and teaching and supporting home care to reduce frequency of office visits.
CHIROPRACTIC CARE IN GREENVILLE
The effect of spinal adjusting is somewhat more complex due to the role of the nervous system in regulating body processes. The hard bones of the spine protect the soft tissues of the nervous system and impingement can occur. Spinal misalignments, called subluxations by chiropractors, can irritate the nervous system and impair function in the same way that a pinched nerve in the neck can cause numbness in the hands. The adjustment to the spine can positively affect body function which leads to a higher level of health and satisfaction through chiropractic.
Dr. Lisa Prusinski and Dr. Mark Vellan treat the 'whole person' in their work as chiropractors, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, which often arise from imbalances in the spinal column. Unrelated issues will be directed to a primary medical provider with x-rays taken at Eastern Radiology with easy access to all medical providers.
Under Dr. Lisa Prusinski and Dr. Mark Vellan's care, patients report higher functioning in all areas of their lives. Conditions that are regularly seen include: Auto injuries, back and neck pain, fibromyalgia, headaches, joint pain, mid back pain, myofascial trigger points, sciatica, sports injuries, sprain/strain injuries and total body health.

We strive to listen and improve the quality of healthcare for all current and potential patients. Our main goals in practice are to help our patient’s focus on wellness and how to stay fit and healthy. We accomplish this through exercise, nutrition and stress management and promoting a healthy lifestyle. We believe that health and wellness are important at any age and we encourage the young, old and everyone in between to discover the benefits of chiropractic care for the whole family.
