Wilmington Chiropractor Announces New Website to Educate Patients

WILMINGTON, NC--(Marketwire - Jul 19, 2011) - Wilmington-based Chiropractic Central has announced the launch of its newly redesigned website, Dr. David Lude, a licensed chiropractor since 1995, leads the practice, which offers natural, non-invasive alignment treatments for spinal injury and back pain. The new website is designed to make it easier for individuals to learn about the practice and become better educated about chiropractic care.

Dr. David Lude, a licensed chiropractor at Chiropractic Central, has announced the launch of the practice's new website, Located in Wilmington, North Carolina, the practice uses non-invasive treatments to help patients suffering from neck pain, back pain, headaches and other forms of chronic pain. The goal of the new website is to help educate patients about the practice's approach to whole body wellness and pain management.

"We believe that patient needs are central to the spinal and holistic care we provide. This means that we don't cover up pain with medication, but that instead we take the time to cure the underlying condition, relieving pain and preventing future injury," said Dr. Lude. "We know some people may never have visited a chiropractor before, and we redesigned our website to help these folks understand how our approach to pain management works."

The website includes a "Community Content" resource library with information on treatments like decompression therapy, as well as complementary care, such as massage therapy, physical therapy and nutrition counseling. The website also explains how chiropractors use these treatments to relieve symptoms such as back pain, and help the underlying condition heal. The "Chiro Myths & Facts" page, for example, includes information on common misconceptions about spinal care.

"Many patients don't realize, for example, that shooting leg pain and numbness can be the result of a herniated disc in the lower back pressing on the sciatic nerve," said Dr. Lude. "Medicating the pain won't solve the actual problem with the disc, but chiropractic care can restore natural alignment. We hope the new website will help patients understand the causes of their pain and that is it possible to treat this pain without medication."

Prospective patients who are not familiar with the Wilmington practice can learn more under the "New Patient Center." This resource section includes information on what to expect during the first visit, a virtual office tour and forms that can be downloaded and filled out in advance of the first visit. There is also information on payment options, including types of accepted insurance and family plans. Prospective patients can request an appointment using the online appointment request form.

Individuals can also learn more about the practice by visiting Dr. Lude's blog. The blog includes information on the latest chiropractic care news as well as tips on staying healthy and preventing injury. It is also possible to post a question for Dr. Lude and his staff.

"This website is a tremendous asset for our practice, and we hope it will be a helpful resource for patients," said Dr. Lude. "But we don't want it to just be a one-way street. We want to create an environment where patients can learn, post questions, and share treatment experiences with our staff and one another."
