Chiropractors focus on the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of neuromuscular disorders, working to get the bottom of what is causing the patient pain and discomfort.
What conditions to chiropractors treat?
Chiropractic care can help patients of all ages and health conditions. Some of the most frequent ailments we treat are those related to neck pain, back pain, and headaches. We can also treat those who are suffering from a wide range of injuries and disorders of the musculoskeletal system, which may involve the muscles, ligaments, and joints.
Who can benefit?
Anyone who suffers from back or neck discomfort, joint pain, and tingling, or any other type of chronic pain can benefit from chiropractic care. Given its holistic approach, individuals who are interested in alternative solutions to traditional medicine may benefit from this type of treatment.
What is a chiropractic adjustment?
Also referred to as a spinal manipulation, chiropractic adjustment is a procedure where a chiropractor uses their hands and sometimes a small instrument and specialized table to control force to a specific part of the body. Adjustments don’t just feel great, but they can improve the body’s efficiency and function.
Does chiropractic work?
The short answer is yes, chiropractic adjustments most certainly work. They are a non-invasive form of treatment that can help people suffering from many different injuries, conditions, and ailments. Studies have shown that chiropractic care is a very beneficial approach to treating numerous pain conditions. It is safe, effective, and quite enjoyable.
What should I expect?
The first time you go to the chiropractor, you will undergo a thorough examination that will include your medical history, a physical exam, and possibly other tests, such as x-rays. Once your chiropractor assesses your complaint and diagnoses the problem, he or she will discuss a treatment plan with you. In some cases, you will have an adjustment right then and there. Your chiropractor will also give you healthy tips to avoid further injury and pain.
