How Can Chiropractic Care Help You?

Chiropractic care can be a great way to manage and relieve swelling and pain caused by everyday life and beyond. Routine chiropractic care provides patients with treatment that’s a safe, non-invasive, non-addictive alternative to prescription medications or over-the-counter pain medications (OTCs), which are commonly prescribed to patients to help them manage their pain and swelling

Chiropractors deliver a gentle, non-invasive, non-addictive therapy, known as a chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractic adjustments reduce joint restrictions or misalignments in the spine and other joints in the body in an effort to reduce inflammation and improve the function of both the affected joint and nervous system. By increasing joint mobility and improving your nervous system function and spinal health, your body has the ability to better manage symptoms caused by everyday stressors.

This is where you get to share with the doctor a little about you! In addition to reviewing your medical history with the doctor, they will ask you to share more about your lifestyle and your health and wellness goals.

The Exam

Based on your presenting symptoms, medical history, and consultation, the doctor will proceed with a thorough examination of the joints in your spine and extremities. Their findings during this process will help guide them to administer the appropriate adjustment(s) needed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Chiropractic is the largest, non-invasive, drugless and safest form of health care available. Statistically, patient risk is substantially lower when receiving chiropractic care as opposed to medical care, where the use of prescription drugs and surgery pose a greater risk.

This all depends on the length and severity of your condition, however, most first visits may last as much as 30 minutes. Follow-up visits are much less, often as little as 5-10 minutes.

At the end of your first visit, your doctor will determine the best course of treatment for your specific needs. The frequency in which you receive chiropractic care is strictly up to the professional judgment of the Doctor of Chiropractic and will vary from individual to individual depending on your presenting condition and overall goals. Just as regular visits to the dentist are necessary for good dental hygiene, routine visits to a Doctor of Chiropractic are also important for proper spinal function and health maintenance.
