Atrium Health – Carolinas HealthCare System NorthEast

When people consider their health care options, they often look for doctors who show extreme compassion, a hospital that is at the forefront of medical research and innovation, as well as access that is both affordable and convenient. For Carolinas HealthCare System NorthEast, success lies in the ability to deliver all of these things to patients in their community — anytime, anywhere.

“We offer health, hope and healing for all,” said Phyllis Wingate, division president of the Northern Group and president of Carolinas HealthCare System NorthEast.

In addition to the numerous services through Atrium Health, Cabarrus County is home to numerous specialists, such as chiropractic, dentists and health and wellness centers.

Cabarrus County is a hub for chiropractic care, so whether a patient is dealing with back, neck, shoulder or aches and pain elsewhere, they have their pick of the highest quality of doctors from which to choose. Pure Chiropractic, Love Chiropractic Center and Dr. Scott Saario, clinic director of ChiroCabarrus, boast premier services to help patients heal and achieve their wellness goals.

“Chiropractic is so beneficial because it addresses one of the most significant issues in health care: musculoskeletal pain and degeneration. Back pain alone is the leading cause of disabilities worldwide. Attempting to treat chronic pain is an uphill battle and consequently has created another enormous problem in the American Opioid Epidemic,” Saario said. “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and it makes a whole lot more sense to prevent chronic pain through musculoskeletal maintenance. Unfortunately, the American health care model is to treat diseases rather than to prevent them. The focus of chiropractic care is to prevent and slow down the wear and tear to joints, tendons, muscles and ligament. You only get one body in this life and that body may feel great right now, but it has to last you a lifetime.”

Dedicated to helping patients improve their health with natural and holistic approaches to wellness, Five Elements of Healing crafts a treatment plan that best addresses a client’s unique and whole needs. Services include massage therapy, naturopathic medicine, light therapy and hypnotherapy.
