One of the most common and well known therapeutic procedures performed by doctors of chiropractic is spinal manipulation (sometimes referred to as a "chiropractic adjustment"). The purpose of spinal manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile – or restricted in their movement – as a result of a tissue injury. Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal posture for an extended period of time. In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function for an individual. Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, allowing tissues to heal. Chiropractic adjustment rarely causes discomfort. However, patients may sometimes experience mild soreness or aching following treatment (as with some forms of exercise) that usually resolves within 12 to 48 hours. Compared to other common treatments for pain, such as over-the-counter and prescription pain medications, chiropractic's conservative approach offers a safe and effective option.
Dr. Hogan and the entire Regatta Chiro team are truly a blessing. I first began seeing Dr. Hogan for chiropractic care, but soon started visiting regularly for facials and massages with Orlando. Her beautiful office in Regatta Commons is peacful and always a joy to visit! Do yourself a favor! VISIT!
I cannot say enough about Shawna and staff. Shawna saved my back throughout my pregnancy, and now treat my newborn son with the same love and care! The entire office has become our second family.
I had friends refer me to Dr. Shawna Hogan and I could not be more grateful. She really took the time to get to know me and understand my medical issues prior to major adjustments that could really cause harm in my circumstance. After following a treatment plan to include adjustments and massage (Orlando is awesome) I am blown away by how great I am feeling. I didn't realize how bad my pain actually was until I didn't feel it anymore. The entire office is always welcoming, easy to schedule with and always so friendly!
Shawna is patient and kind. She really takes her time and aims to help you in any way she can. I'm currently 34 weeks pregnant and having chiropractic care for the first time in my life. I've had several issues with my hips and lower back and since getting regular adjustments I've noticed a huge difference in my mobility and pain level. I'm also sleeping like a baby! Every pregnant woman should make an appointment now.
Shawna is awesome! My wife and I meet with her today about getting care for our son and she went far beyond what we expected, we are very happy that she will be helping our son.
Shawna is the best in Destin. She has changed my life! If you have doubts about chiropractic, you better give it a try. It will change your life too! Don't just stop there, take advantage of the great specials they are always running on massages, facials and other great beauty and feel good treatments! You feel and look great after a visit to Regatta Chiropractic!
I love being able to come in and get a facial, massage, and an adjustment all in one place! Dr. Hogan and her team are so genuine and knowledgeable.
I love this place!!! Shawna is my chiropractor and Orlando is my massage therapist. Its no coincidence that they are consistently the Best In Destin. I refer all of my Pilates clients to regatta chiropractic.
