The Pettibon System is a comprehensive spinal rehabilitation program. It implements posture correction methods shown to restore normal spinal form and function while providing pain relief.

At Atlanta Spine and Wellness in Chamblee, we provide the Pettibon system in a sleek, state-of-the-art facility so we can help you get out of pain and stay out of pain with great posture.

All About Atlanta Spine and Wellness’s Pettibon System

One of the advantages of the Pettibon system is that you can implement it both at home and in our clinic, meaning you don’t have to wait until your next appointment to continue benefiting from rehabilitation. Patients use various pieces of equipment twice daily at home.

And when you do make a trip to our clinic, you prepare for your appointment by performing warm-up exercises and stretches for both muscles and discs using the Therapeutic Wobble Chair and the Repetitive Cervical Traction unit. These stretches and exercises hydrate spinal discs and increase disc height, preparing the spine for a treatment with lasting health benefits.

Maintaining good posture is a lifelong process. To keep this simplified, the Pettibon System implements various pieces of equipment in the clinic and at home, the home pieces used twice daily.

While at the clinic, you’ll take advantage of the Pettibon weighting system consisting of specially designed head, shoulder and hip weights designed to alter your center of gravity in a way that helps your body adjust your posture. The weights force your body to do what are called isometric exercises, meaning only specific muscle groups are put to work. These exercises are shown to restore muscle strength, endurance, and balance that promotes correct posture.
