We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Jeremy Jernigan has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.
Dr. Jernigan is currently the only ART certified provider on the Mississippi Gulf Coast

Erchonia Cold Laser
Cold Laser is an amazing new technology used in health care today. Cold laser is referred to as a low level laser therapy that is much different from traditional lasers that cut or burn. Cold laser is painless and has no thermal effect on the body. It is used to stimulate tissue healing rather than destroy tissues. These types of lasers have been in use for over 25 years and there has yet to be one recorded side effect.
The erchonia cold laser emits a visible coherent light that is applied to the affected area. Bundles of light energy pass through the skin to photo receptors which exist on each cell within the body. These receptors are stimulated to trigger the cell to speed up several metabolic processes including increased circulation, increased cell regeneration, scar tissue reduction and increasing oxygen levels to the area. The overall effects of the cold laser are increased range of motion, decreased pain and inflammation, and enhanced tissue regeneration.
The cold laser may help you with your arthritis, carpal tunnel, whiplash, disc herniations, sciatica, chronic neck and back pain, strained muscles or any process which triggers an inflammatory response.

We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Dr. Jeremy Jernigan can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
