What is Chiropractic care?
Chiropractic is a safe and effective manual therapeutic approach to managing musculoskeletal conditions such as back and neck pain, headaches, shoulder and hip problems, sprains and strains. Chiropractors utilize a series of specialized techniques in order to treat these conditions, including spinal or joint manipulation (sometimes referred to as “adjustments”) and soft tissue therapy – aimed at correcting problems with the proper function of the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissue.
Why seek Chiropractic Care?
Generally, people seek chiropractic care if they are suffering from back or neck pain, headaches, or many other forms of joint or muscle pain. Chiropractors are very effective at treating pain and dysfunction without the use of drugs or surgery and can treat and prevent a variety of physical problems – from short term aches and pains to long term solutions such as injury rehabilitation.
What can I expect with Chiropractic visit/treatment?
On your initial visit, your Chiropractor will perform a thorough history and physically assessment to determine the location and extent of your injury/condition. Next, they will explain the nature of the problem, what types of services and treatments that are recommended, the approximate length of your treatment plan and any other pertinent information pertaining to your situation.
During a treatment, chiropractors may use any number of therapies to help your problem heal and recover faster. Most commonly, spinal or joint manipulation is used to stimulate and restore movement to an area or joint that is stiff, tight, or moving poorly. As well, a number of specialized therapies will be utilized on the local muscles and soft tissues in order to reduce tension and swelling, speed healing and recovery, and ease discomfort and pain.
