CHIROPRACTOR

Chiropractic care focuses on the restoration of spinal alignment. There are two basic treatment philosophies.

  1. Those who study the Palmer method of chiropractic believe that chiropractic care is the only treatment that patients need for any condition, from the flu to back pain.
  2. Other doctors of chiropractic believe that chiropractic care is part of an integrated approach to wellness that includes diet, exercise, and traditional medicine when needed.

The most common kind of chiropractic treatment is referred to as spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) or a chiropractic adjustment. In this type of work, doctors apply controlled force in a very specific way to restore mobility in the joints. Sometimes the patient will hear a popping noise as the spine is adjusted, but this is no cause for alarm. Small pockets of air trapped in the joints cause this popping noise, similar to what one might hear when cracking the knuckles.

Chiropractic treatment is hands-on, drug-free, and complex. Doctors will take a detailed health history, including family history and details of the current injury if applicable. After taking health history and answering any questions the patient might have, doctors may also recommend X-rays or an MRI to confirm that chiropractic care is appropriate. If a patient is experiencing loss of strength or lack of reflexive response, a chiropractor may refer the patient to a spine surgeon to get more information before beginning treatment. Once all of these steps are complete, treatment can begin.

Things you can ask for prior to you going to see a chiropractor.

  • Is it safe?

  • What is the direct thrust technique?

  • How do chiropractors use muscle energy to relieve pain?

  • What does a chiropractor treat?

  • Can I get chiropractic care during pregnancy?

Other Questions

ARE THERE CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT SIDE EFFECTS?

Traditional, more interventional, treatments like surgery can have serious side effects that are long-term. With chiropractic care, the side effects, if any, may be a bit of soreness that is usually gone within a day. Typically, side effects may include minor soreness at the area of treatment. Mayo Clinic also reports that some patients may experience headache or fatigue following the procedure.

WHAT DOES A CHIROPRACTOR TREAT?

A chiropractor can treat a wide variety of conditions, but a chiropractor will evaluate the patient based on a variety of factors that include family history, current activity, the nature of the injury and its interactions with other previous injuries, and the amount of support a patient needs. This gives chiropractors a better idea of how to proceed.

From there, chiropractors can help relieve pain due to the above mentioned conditions.

WHAT DOES SEEING A CHIROPRACTOR FOR LOWER BACK PAIN ACCOMPLISH?

Lower back pain is the most common type of back pain. While there is no one condition that causes pain in the lower back, compression of the lumbar spine is one of the most common uses of chiropractic care for pain. This compression may occur due to chronically poor posture that results in a C-shaped curve in the lumbar spine. This C-shaped curve can become chronic and painful.

WHAT DOES SEEING A CHIROPRACTOR FOR NECK PAIN ACCOMPLISH?

We too often put pressure onto our neck bones as we look down at computers and phones all day long. For every inch our head juts forward of our shoulders, eight pounds of additional pressure are exerted on the cervical spine.

Chiropractic care for neck pain can help patients understand what correct posture looks and feels like, preventing further injury.

“Acupuncture has been around for 4,000 years. I can’t see a treatment being around that long just ‘faking’ it. But it all deals with energy. That’s why it’s hard to explain why it works.”

“In a car you can go on and on with it but each time you travel with it, it will need to be tweaked. The oil may need a top off, the tires may need a straightening or the windows may need to be cleaned. That’s exactly what a chiropractic adjustment does. For your body to maintain its everyday use, you need to provide it with everyday adjustments.”

“Any misalignment the body has, has a root cause and a location. It is my job to locate and remove the root cause of the problem, getting rid of disease and getting better health instead.”

“I had found someone I really liked then my husband got a new job in a new city. So, up we went and changed homes and all in another, bigger city. I thought that I’d never find that same person until I found Wellness Withdrawal. I think that the one at your place is even better than the one I left! Go figure!!!”
