What is chiropractic care?
Chiropractic is a part of chiropractic care based on the idea that good health depends in part on a properly functioning nervous system (especially the spine, and the nerves that extend from the spine to all parts of the body). The term "chiropractic" comes from the Greek word chiropraktikos, which means "manual effective treatment". Chiropractic emphasizes the idea that the cause of many disease processes begins with the body's inability to adapt to its environment. Rather than addressing these disorders through the use of drugs and chemicals, it addresses these disorders by locating and adjusting musculoskeletal areas of the body that are not functioning properly.
What are the benefits of chiropractic care?
Although chiropractic care is most commonly used to relieve low back pain, studies have found it to be effective for a variety of conditions such as migraine, neck and shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia and infant abdominal pain.
Is chiropractic treatment safe?
Chiropractic care is safer than aspirin, muscle relaxants and back surgery. Some patients can get results quickly, while others may take longer. Chiropractic care is safe and effective for all ages, from infants to seniors. Many patients undergo regular adjustments as preventive health care. Professional athletes such as Tiger Woods, Jerry Rice, Wade Boggs, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Evander Holyfield, to name just a few, receive regular chiropractic care. Most Olympic and professional teams have chiropractors and other health care providers available to serve their athletes
What can I expect at my first visit?
The first thing your chiropractor will do is ask you about your main health concerns. The chiropractor will also ask about your family medical history, diet, other care you may have (chiropractic, osteopathic, medical, etc.), your job and other questions designed to help determine the nature of your disease and the best way to proceed. A physical examination will be performed based on the clinical judgment of your chiropractor, which may include x-rays, laboratory analysis and other diagnostic procedures. In addition, a careful spinal examination and analysis will be performed to detect any structural abnormalities that may be affecting or contributing to your condition. All of these elements are important components of your overall health and are vital to the chiropractor in assessing your problem.
Does chiropractic care hurt?
Under normal circumstances, adjustments are not painful. The patient may experience a small amount of discomfort during the adjustment, which lasts only a few seconds. There may also be a faint thumping sound during the adjustment. This sound is produced by the movement of gases and fluids in the joints and is a normal occurrence.
What other services do you offer in addition to chiropractic care?
We offer a variety of alternative health treatments, including acupuncture, aromatherapy, homeopathic formulas, herbal remedies and more. All of these methods are designed to provide effective treatment for your condition.
