What is a chiropractor? A chiropractor is a health care professional that assesses, diagnoses and treats various issues with the neuromuscular system, with most of the focus being directed to issues of the spine. A chiropractor’s goal is to correct spinal misalignments, reduce pain and improve mobility without the use of drugs or surgery, so patients can get back to their normal activities.
When you make an appointment at our chiropractic clinic, we will customize a treatment plan for you to help get rid of your pain once and for all.
Chiropractic care is a natural way to restore your joint function and mobility and relieve your chronic pain. Where conventional treatment often masks the pain with risky medication or recommends potentially dangerous joint replacement surgery, we will always look for the underlying cause of your pain to provide relief. Once the root cause has been addressed and treated, the pain will no longer exist because pain is just a by-product of the deeper issue.
It’s a good idea to make an appointment with a chiropractor if you have issues that include:
- Shoulder pain
- Hip pain
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Elbow pain
- Ankle pain
- Knee pain
- Overall body stiffness
A chiropractic adjustment refers to a short lever thrust performed on a misaligned joint to help bring it back into alignment. Your chiropractor will perform the adjustments manually using his hands or with a specialized tool. The audible crack that you hear during a chiropractic adjustment is gas being released from the joint. This also releases pressure within the joint to encourage pain relief.
Chiropractic adjustments are effective at treating both acute injuries and chronic or degenerative conditions of the spine and are an effective form of all-natural pain relief.
Physical therapy is another method of treatment we offer at our chiropractic clinic. If you have suffered an injury, physical therapy is a non-invasive way to provide pain relief and rehabilitate the injured area to improve function and mobility. Our physical therapist will use special exercises and equipment to boost strength, balance and stability and help get you back to your normal routine.
Physical therapy is often used after a car accident injury, workplace injury or a sports injury. It is a multi-dimensional approach that can be used on its own or as part of a more comprehensive treatment plan.
