Chiropractic Care offers natural, non-invasive pain relief to patients who suffer from acute to chronic pain, muscle strain, back and neck pain, joint discomfort, headaches and a variety of common illnesses. Chiropractic uses specific spinal adjustments that affect the nervous system, and by doing so affects all other systems of the body.
Treatment/Chiropractic Spinal Adjustments
Chiropractic treatments usually involve spinal adjustments. A spinal adjustment is a treatment that uses pressure on a joint of the spine. It is used to improve pain and function. Chiropractic adjustments can be done with the hands or special chiropractic instruments. The careful, controlled force used on the spine can range from gentle to strong, and from slow to rapid.
Sometimes other joints of the body are also worked on to help treat the spine. Patients will generally be provided with their first treatment at the conclusion of the appointment. Treatment is interactive with you so you can express any concerns you have about the style of adjustment you will be most comfortable with.
Other types of treatment may include:
- Kinesio Taping
- Core Strengthening or Conditioning Exercises
- Myofacial Release
- Strength and conditioning exercises
