The Muscular Zone and Zone Technique in Woodstock, GA

The Zone Technique is a healing method that focuses on balancing the body through the six Zones of the brain – Glandular Zone, Elimination Zone, Nervous Zone, Digestive Zone, Muscular Zone, and Circulatory Zone. Every single muscle, gland, organ, and cell falls under one or more of these Zones, and once the Zones are balanced, the entire body can begin healing, functioning, and adapting as it was meant to.

The Muscular Zone is the area of the brain that controls and regulates the health and function of all the body’s muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments. It is also involved in immune function and balance.

The Muscular Zone can become imbalanced due to emotional, chemical, and physical stresses that overwhelm the body. An imbalance of the Muscular Zone can result in impaired movement, loss of proper muscle tone and spinal alignment, poor strength, loss of balance, walking issues, and poor relaxation.

When the Muscular Zone is balanced, one can experience greater balance, improved strength, a stronger immune system, more ease and the ability to relax, and better walking and overall movement.

How Our Muscular Zone Care Plan Works

Identifying The Cause

We listen to you, and more importantly, we hear you. We take this information, along with utilizing two state-of-the-art computerized technologies, to determine what is going on in your body and how this affects your health. We then devise a personalized plan to help you reach your goals.

Specific Chiropractic Care

Based on what we find in your computerized exam, we now know exactly how to adjust you. At each visit, we determine where to adjust you based on which zone of your brain is imbalanced on that visit. Adjustments are performed with the best instruments in the industry so that they are precise, extremely gentle, and tailored to your body’s needs.

Accelerate Your Healing

Research has shown that your brain is most open to change for 20 minutes after a chiropractic adjustment. That being so, why would we immediately send you out into the world that put you in the condition you came in with? We don’t! We maximize that period after your adjustment with our groundbreaking Transformation Stations, which accelerate healing and contribute to permanent positive changes and habits.

How We Use Muscular Zone Treatment in Woodstock, GA

The specific treatment techniques we use may vary depending on the individual patient and the nature of their condition. Here are the techniques we use as part of our Muscular Zone treatment within Zone Technique:

Comprehensive Consultation and Exam

At The Center for Life Enhancement, we always start with a consultation, which is really a conversation to determine the underlying reasons why you’re here and how long your health concerns have been affecting you. At this point, you can decide if we are a good fit for you and if you are a good fit for us. From there, we move to a comprehensive exam which includes computerized posture evaluation, grip strength testing, pulse oximetry, blood pressure, palpation of your spine, and a computerized scan to determine how your nervous system is functioning. These are all analyzed that evening by the doctor, and your results are shared with you the next day to determine if we can help you.

We determine which Zone is out of balance at each visit by checking six specific spots on your head for tenderness. You will know exactly which Zone is imbalanced, and when the visit is complete, we recheck that Zone so that you know it was corrected and healing has begun.

It is always essential to get to the root cause of an issue versus treating the symptoms because addressing the root cause will almost always resolve the symptoms and prevent them from returning. Chasing and treating only the symptoms may provide temporary relief, but the symptoms will return, potentially worse than last time.

A subluxation is a misalignment in your spinal column that causes interference with the messages sent from the brain to the rest of the body. In our office, we find subluxations using the Zone Technique Analysis and correct them specifically and gently based on your neurological test results.

Chiropractic adjustments are our method of balancing the Zones. Each Zone has four specific vertebrae involved, and those segments are adjusted to clear the imbalanced zone.

At The Center for Life Enhancement, we use the latest science to ensure we harness and amplify the power of adjustment. Research shows that the brain is most plastic or open to change for up to 20 minutes after a chiropractic adjustment. Why would we adjust you and then, with a brain ready to change, send you back out into the world that got you into the condition you came in with? We use that 20 minutes to lock in and build on the brain’s plasticity by having you lie on a Zero-Gravity chair. 90% of the brain’s energy focuses on keeping you upright in gravity, so we take that out of the equation. While on the chair, you will lie on an earthing/grounding mat to balance out your body’s electricity and reduce inflammation. You will also wear a BrainTap headset, which keeps your brain in healing mode by using specific sounds and flashing lights. These Transformation Stations speed up healing and quickly allow for more permanent changes.

I’ve had a great experience! I’m feeling better and better…more energy, less pain, better sleep…the best anti-aging in town.

I cannot recommend Dr. John enough! I have always gone to traditional chiropractors who took care of a problem for the day, but never healed the issue. I would wake up with headaches, hip pain from a horse injury (that I was told by a chiropractor would always be there no matter what), and knee pain while doing certain exercises. Since going to Center for Life Enhancement, I no longer have any pain or discomfort. It’s mind boggling because Dr. John uses gentle techniques to adjust verses the snap crackle and pop of a traditional chiropractic experience. I can go a week between visits and I don’t experience the laps backwards I felt after adjustments before. Life changing.

Dr John is a true healer. He totally understands how the body and mind work together. Dr John is warm, patient, and knowledgeable. I always feel great after an adjustment in all aspects, emotionally and physically. Do yourself a favor and go see Dr John, he will help you heal yourself.

I saw Dr. John while I was pregnant and after (until he moved, sadly!!). I went to him because I had back issues & was afraid of experiencing intense back labor as I had with my first son. His treatments made me feel safe & taken care of. I always left feeling a lot of mobility in my spine. The pregnancy was causing me a lot of back pain but after I started seeing him the pain went away. I was really happy to see the improvement during labor as well. I also took my 8 year old to him. My 8 year old is autistic and has adhd. Dr. John developed a beautiful relationship with my son & my son’s teacher even commented on how my son’s focus had improved. I noticed the same. We miss Dr. John!

Talk about wow! The doctor has such a huge heart, but has a wonderful way of adjusting. I never did well with the offices where everyone gets the same adjustments. I really love that he personalizes his care to the person in front of him. Give him a try, you won’t regret it!

Dr. D’Ambrosio is amazing! After just six visits, my back isn’t hurting any more, which is wonderful and the original reason for my visit, but I’ve seen so many other positive side effects! I have MUCH more energy, I’m sleeping better at night, I’ve lost a couple of pounds, and my blood pressure has even gone from 158/90 to 112/63, a decrease I believe is due to the decreased stress I feel from the treatments! I’ve seen other chiropractors in the past and have been satisfied with the adjustments I’ve received, but this is really so much more—a different approach to determining how to truly align the body based on research, and the results are incredible! I highly recommend Dr. D’Ambrosio and his professional, caring staff!

Most Common Symptoms of Imbalance in the Muscular System in Woodstock, GA

Low Back Pain

Low back pain can have numerous causes, including muscle or ligament strain, nerve compression, bulging or ruptured discs, arthritis, osteoporosis, ankylosing spondylitis, and more. It is so prevalent today due to excessive time sitting, being overweight, improper lifting, smoking, lack of exercise or movement, and even depression.

Muscles, joints, discs, and ligaments play a significant role in low back pain as they are the cause and source of a lot of low back pain issues.

Chiropractic care gets to the root cause of low back pain by normalizing nerve supply and proper motion to the low back so that healing can begin. That said, if you are sedentary and overweight, you must address those issues to see any changes. The stresses caused by obesity and a sedentary lifestyle put the body in a continual loop of distress, as healing and stability from chiropractic adjustments can’t take hold. It would be like exercising to get healthier, but then going home, sitting on your sofa, smoking cigarettes, drinking beer, and eating fast food all night. As good as the exercise is, it can’t overcome the bad habits.

Neck Pain

Neck pain is becoming a more significant problem these days because of Forward Head Posture, also known as “Tech Neck”. This posture is one of constant neck flexion from looking down at a phone or computer. Tech Neck is especially troublesome with young children and teens whose bones are still growing and forming, setting them up for degeneration and arthritis in their 20s and 30’s, a condition usually seen in people in their 60s. Contrary to popular belief, these conditions aren’t a normal part of the aging process but happen due to preventable postural and nerve issues.

Neck pain can also come from muscle strains, worn joints, nerve compression, injuries, and even from diseases such as meningitis, arthritis, and cancer.

Chiropractic care balances the nervous system so the muscles can work properly and posture and balance normalize, relieving neck pain at its root cause.

Shoulder Pain

The shoulder joint involves not only the humerus and where it contacts the scapula and clavicle, but also numerous muscles, ligaments, and bursa, which include the well-known rotator cuff muscles.

Numerous issues, such as muscle, ligament, or tendon inflammation or damage, arthritis, inflammation of the bursa, and nerve issues such as thoracic outlet syndrome among many other things can cause shoulder pain.

Chiropractic care balances the nervous system allowing communication between the brain and all of the muscles, nerves, ligaments, bursa of the shoulder, and surrounding areas to function properly so true healing can begin to take place.


Sciatica is an inflammation of the sciatic nerve, which exits your lower back and runs all the way down the back of your leg to your foot. Sciatica can occur due to muscle spasms, impaired nerve flow from the spine, herniated discs, arthritis, and more.

Chiropractic care balances the nervous system, allowing the muscles of the low back to function properly and the nerves to send messages without interruption, which allows for addressing the root cause of sciatic pain.

Knee Pain

The knee is where your thigh and shin bones meet, as well as your kneecap. Numerous muscles, ligaments, and menisci make up the knee joint. Many issues, such as a foot or hip imbalance, improper walking, poor nerve supply to the muscles around the knee, arthritis, ligament and meniscus tears or inflammation can cause knee pain.

Chiropractic care restores the proper function, movement, and nerve supply to the muscles, ligaments, tendons, and other structures of the knee, allowing for healing.

Bulged and Herniated Discs

A bulging disc is like letting air out of a car tire. The disc sags and looks like it is bulging outward. As the disc continues to bulge it can tear, allowing the nucleus pulposus (jelly-like center of the disc) to leak into the spinal canal. This is a herniated disc.

Because bulging discs are considered degenerative, there is usually a progressive, gradual onset of symptoms. It can cause pain in the buttocks, legs, or back. It can also affect your ability to walk. Bulging discs usually occur over time due to poor posture, weak muscles, poor nerve supply to the spine, lack of activity, or carrying excessive weight.

Herniated discs can occur for those same reasons, along with a trauma such as a fall or accident. Pain from a herniated disc occurs abruptly and usually involves one nerve root. Herniated discs are sometimes caused by an acute injury but can also occur “overnight,” with one waking up feeling the pain.

By restoring proper nerve supply to the muscles and nerves, which allows for good posture and motion, the symptoms of disc bulges and herniations can minimize and disappear.

Carpal Tunnel

The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway surrounded by bones and ligaments on the palm side of the hand. The median nerve travels through this passageway. Compression of the median nerve causes symptoms, including numbness, tingling, and weakness in the hand and arm. This compression can also happen in the neck as well, which is known as double crush syndrome.

Anything that squeezes or irritates the median nerve in the carpal tunnel space or where it originates in the cervical spine may lead to carpal tunnel syndrome. A wrist fracture can narrow the carpal tunnel and irritate the nerve, as can the swelling and inflammation caused by rheumatoid arthritis. Many times, there is no single cause of carpal tunnel syndrome. A combination of risk factors may contribute to the development of the condition.

Restoration of proper nerve flow from the cervical spine and down the kinetic chain of the shoulder, elbow, and wrist can eliminate the root cause of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.


TMJ is the temporomandibular joint, and pain in this joint is known as TMD or temporomandibular disorder. Symptoms of TMJ/TMD include jaw pain by the ear, clicking and popping of the joint with pain while chewing, and weakness of the jaw muscles. Although the causes of TMJ/TMD are not fully known, arthritis and joint damage due to trauma are believed to be major contributors.

Chiropractic care can relieve the issue of TMJ/TMD, specifically the Cranial Release Technique, by balancing the 22 moveable bones of the skull. Once they align and move properly, the jaw can move as it should, and the nerve supply to the joint may allow it to heal.
