At Carolina Active Health Chiropractic, we offer a wide variety of therapeutic options in addition to our manual therapy. These include heat, cryotherapy, and electrical stimulation.


The Marc Pro is an electrical muscle stimulation device (EMS) used to improve your performance, speed up muscle recovery, and relieve pain between workouts. This device creates strong but non-fatiguing muscle contractions that set off a series of physiologic events. The process begins with activating Nitric Oxide (NO), which dilates blood vessels and increases flow, ultimately delivering more oxygenated blood and nutrients to the treatment area.

Localized muscle activity also benefits the lymphatic and venous systems. Because of this, using the Marc Pro after physical activity helps move deoxygenated blood away from the fatigued area(s). This exchange of nourishment and waste, without stress or fatigue, accelerates muscle recovery.

NormaTec PULSE Recovery Systems


We also offer NormaTec recovery to help you improve your movement. NormaTec is considered the leader in rapid recovery—and gives a competitive edge to the world’s elite athletes, coaches, and trainers. 

The NormaTec PULSE Recovery Systems are dynamic compression devices for recovery and rehab. Our systems include a control unit and attachments for the legs, arms, or hips. They use compressed air to massage your limbs, mobilize fluid, and speed recovery with our patented NormaTec Pulse Massage Pattern.

When you use our systems, you will first experience a pre-inflate cycle where connected attachments are molded to your exact body shape. The session will then begin by compressing your feet, hands, or upper quad (depending on the attachment). Similar to the kneading performed in a massage, each segment of the attachment will first compress and release. This process repeats for each attachment as the compression pattern works its way up your limb.

I would strongly recommend this practice to those recovering from injury, training for an athletic event, or simply seeking to improve overall health and wellness. Dr. Nelson played an instrumental role in my recovery from a lower back disc-related injury and continues to provide excellent care and advice. With the severity of my lower back pain I was unsure if I would ever be able to return to some of the sports and activities that I love, including golf, volleyball, weightlifting, but now can confidently say that I perform all at a higher level than I did prior to injury largely due to the care I received at Carolina Active Health. They take a holistic approach in the sense that they consider all factors that may be contributing to pain and they perform full body screens which are beneficial to identifying potential restrictions in mobility. What meant the most to me, however, was that they all seemed to truly care and were enthusiastic about my progress. Highly recommend!
