Is chiropractic care right for you?
Our chiropractors, also called chiropractic physicians, treat muscle, joint and nerve pain by precisely identifying and correcting specific joint and musculoskeletal misalignments.
These misalignments pinch nerves, irritate muscles, restrict blood flow, worsen inflammation, trigger pain and reduce mobility and normal function. Correcting the misalignment helps relieve your pain.
We don’t offer chiropractic care for health issues unrelated to muscle, joint, or nerve pain.
You’ll probably find that our approach is different from your experiences at other clinics.
First, we listen. We want to understand what’s going on with your body, what you’ve tried, and what has and hasn’t helped. Your insight into what’s going on and how it’s affecting your everyday life is important. We’ll also go over your medical history and review recent x-rays or other imaging results if you have them. And we’ll do a physical exam.
Then, we’ll explain our diagnosis, based on all of this information.
The final step is our treatment recommendation, based on your health status, health goals, timeline and budget. Our goal is a treatment plan that’s right for you.
When to see a chiropractor
Many people experience pain and loss of mobility related to traumatic injuries, overuse or misuse injuries, sports and fitness injuries, and chronic health conditions like fibromyalgia.
Numerous studies have found that chiropractic care based on modern medicine’s knowledge of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics is effective for both short-term and long-term relief of musculoskeletal pain.
If you’re experiencing joint pain, and can’t do the things you need and want to do at work and at home, with family and friends, the next step is treatment to rehab your injury, restore normal function and range of motion, and relieve your pain so you can enjoy life again.
Assessment and treatment
Once you and your chiropractor choose a course of treatment, you’ll usually receive your first treatment during your initial appointment.
Most people feel some immediate relief after a painful joint is restored to proper alignment, and most injuries and pain don’t require extended chiropractic treatment.
How soon will I feel better? Will treatment hurt?
You may feel fully back to normal after just one joint adjustment, or you may need multiple adjustments – for example, to align vertebrae and correct your posture to properly distribute the biomechanical load of your body on your joints.
If you’ve suffered an injury or have a persistent joint problem, your chiropractor may also recommend physical therapy or other rehabilitation to retrain your muscles to move normally again.
Chiropractic treatment techniques
Our chiropractors use several techniques to restore joint mobility and help your body heal and recover from traumatic injuries, overuse or misuse. These techniques are also used to manage chronic pain related to other health concerns like rheumatoid arthritis or fibromyalgia.
- Mobility assessments – to determine your current range of motion, the location of discomfort, and the ways in which you may be compensating for pain during movement
- Spinal health assessments – to determine if scoliosis, spinal curvature or other spinal dysfunctions exist that undermine normal posture and movement
- Joint adjustments and joint manipulations – to realign joints, relieve pain and inflammation, reduce pressure on nerves resulting from misalignment, and help restore normal movement
- Bracing, taping, and orthotics – to support or help retrain affected areas while they heal
- Therapeutic exercise – to strengthen and retrain muscles so they can resume normal function
