What Is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care is an alternative form of medicine that takes a different path than traditional medicine. Traditional medicine focuses on dealing with the symptoms of illness once it has already begun. Chiropractic treatment focuses on preventative care to keep the body healthy so that illness does not begin. If there is illness or pain present, chiropractic treatment focuses on treating the root of the problem and not simply the symptoms.
Chiropractic treatment also focuses on the body as a whole unit rather than simply treating one part or one problem. With this approach, you can enjoy overall health and well-being.
What Conditions Can a Chiropractor Treat?
Your chiropractor can treat several issues. The most common issues treated at our chiropractic office are back and neck pain. Back and neck pain is often caused by a misalignment of the spine. Through chiropractic adjustments of the spine, alignment and healing can be achieved. This can greatly reduce pain and inflammation.
Muscle inflammation can also be treated in our office. Muscle inflammation can be caused by many different factors. Through techniques such as hot and cold therapy and massage therapy, muscle inflammation can be reduced and pain can be alleviated.
Many people also find that visiting the chiropractor can have a dramatic effect on other issues such as stress and obesity. In many cases, these issues are part of a larger problem in the body. Chiropractic care focuses on bringing balance and alignment to the entire body. When this is accomplished, many other peripheral problems begin to resolve themselves.
What Can I Expect from a Chiropractor?
When you first visit, the doctor will evaluate your overall health. You can discuss any specific pain issues you are having. The doctor will develop a treatment plan that suits your needs. In most cases, regular visits to the office for chiropractic adjustments will yield the best results.
