Gentle Corrections


Wellness Center seeks to improve the overall quality of life of their patients, BY: Shea Nolan

When people first think of chiropractic care they usually associate it with back pain and stiff joint treatment. However, chiropractic treatment can be much more diverse and address many issues other than back pain.

Millman, the owner and wellness practitioner, said that’s her desire – to bring healthy lifestyles to Suwanee.“I chose to open my practice in Suwanee because I believe in making my local community healthier,” Millman said. “I believe in practicing where I live, not living where I want to practice.”

Suwanee Spine and Wellness Center utilizes a unique type of chiropractic that makes up less than one percent of worldwide chiropractic practice. Known as Upper Cervical Chiropractic, this form of treatment utilizes the lightest possible spinal correction. It has proven highly effective.
“We see people who are in a lot of pain,
for various reasons such as fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis  or migraine headaches, to those who have difficulty sleeping or problems concentrating,” Millman said.

She added that many of her patients have seen multiple doctors and specialists before finally receiving the relief they sought at her office. Suwanee Spine’s treatment has benefited patients complaining of a wide variety of ailments, including those beyond the scope of typical chiropractic techniques.

“We have patients whose blood pressure has been lowered as well as many patients with scoliosis,” Millman said. “We have children who came in with chronic ear infections who no longer experience them. We see patients with asthma or allergy symptoms obtain significant relief through care. We also see those who are otherwise very healthy, with no complaints, who use chiropractic to keep them at their best.” Millman encourages those who are considering chiropractic treatment, or even those who think it isn’t for them, to come in for a complimentary consultation to determine whether or not Upper Cervical Chiropractic would be effective for the patient.

Each client meets personally with Millman to undergo a thorough examination, including a detailed medical history and several neurological and postural tests, in order to determine an appropriate treatment plan. So far, the reception in Suwanee has been extremely positive. Millman said that since opening her practice in September 2012, the business has more than surpassed every goal. To commemorate this achievement, Suwanee Spine will be holding a weeklong anniversary celebration with the practice’s patients.
