Chiropractic Care Q & A
What is chiropractic care?
Chiropractic is a licensed approach to medical care that believes the body can heal itself when given the opportunity. Treatments usually involve manual therapy, like manipulations and massage, as well as nutrition and exercise counseling.
Chiropractic care is based on the principle that spinal misalignments prevent your nerves from communicating with your body as they should, slowing natural healing. When aligned properly, the joints, muscles, and surrounding nerves function properly, alleviating joint pain, headaches, and other types of pain.
Chiropractic care treats the underlying causes of pain. It eases unpleasant symptoms and offers a long-term solution to pain.
Chiropractic care does not promote the use of pharmaceuticals and favors natural healing.
How can I benefit from chiropractic care?
Chiropractic care helps resolve pain and induce healing. It also provides a preventive role in improving daily function and overall quality of life. By correcting any structural abnormalities, you get the support needed to maintain long-term good health and pain-free living.
Along with these preventive benefits, chiropractic therapy can increase your energy levels, strengthen immunity, and foster an overall sense of well-being.
What conditions do you treat with chiropractic care?
You may think of chiropractic care as a solution for back pain, but it offers healing for many other conditions. Chiropractic care may be part of your treatment plan for:
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Acid reflux
- Ear infections
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Shoulder pain
- Neck pain
- Headaches and migraines
- Hip pain
- Knee pain
People with arthritis benefit from chiropractic care as it can help them maintain and improve joint mobility. Chiropractic care also improves sports performance and sleep quality.
What are chiropractic manipulations?
Manipulations are most often performed on the spine but may also be applied to other joints or areas of pain. Your provider moves you into different positions on the chiropractic table to access the treatment areas.
Manipulations include quick and gentle thrusts but also stretching and sustained gentle pressure. You may hear popping and cracking sounds, but this is completely normal. Chiropractic care may also use massage therapy, taping, ultrasound, braces, and shoe inserts.
