Why Chiropractic Care?

What Will Chiropractic Care Do For You?

Chiropractic Care is a holistic approach to health and wellness that emphasizes the body’s innate ability to heal itself. Through gentle spinal adjustments, our chiropractors correct spinal misalignments, known as subluxations, which can interfere with the nervous system’s ability to communicate effectively with the rest of the body. By restoring proper alignment, chiropractic care reduces nerve interference, alleviates pain, and enhances the body’s overall function.

In addition to spinal adjustments, our comprehensive chiropractic care includes personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient’s unique needs and goals. These plans may incorporate corrective exercises, ergonomic recommendations, nutritional guidance, and lifestyle modifications to support long-term health and wellness. Whether you’re seeking relief from chronic pain, recovering from an injury, or simply looking to optimize your health, our chiropractors are dedicated to helping you achieve your goals and live your best life.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Blood Pressure

If you’re faced with high blood pressure, it can be overwhelming to think about adding a medication that has several serious side effects into your daily routine. These side effects include fatigue, nausea, dizziness, anxiety, and weight loss. Recently, a study has found that just one chiropractic adjustment could result in the same benefits as medications that are specifically designed to lower your blood pressure, and that the effects of that adjustment could last for as long as six months.

If an adjustment can offer the same results as the medications, but without the daunting side effects, it may be the right time to book an appointment with your chiropractor.

Neck And Lower Back Pain

It probably isn’t a surprise that chiropractic care helps with pain in the neck and back. However, some studies suggest that 80% of Americans experience some sort of lower back pain in their lives. With costly surgeries, addictive pain medications and mixed levels of relief, chiropractic is another option that many people just don’t consider.

Chiropractic care can help to correct many issues without invasive procedures or prescription medications and may be a viable alternative for your neck and back issues.​​​​​

Sciatica

Sciatic pain is caused by an issue in the sciatic nerve that travels down to your legs. Any problems that impair the nerve’s ability to function can result in pain in one or both legs. This pain can be so debilitating that it sometimes leads to an over-prescription or addiction to certain pain medications.

Chiropractic care works to help reduce the pressure that is placed on the sciatic nerve. Studies have shown that when patients visit their chiropractor to receive care, there was a reduction in the number of days that they experienced pain as well as a reduction in their pain severity.

Scoliosis

Scoliosis is a medical condition that causes the spine to abnormally curve. This change in posture can cause issues with pain, breathing, and an overall reduction in your range of motion. While the treatment options are limited for people who have been diagnosed with scoliosis, chiropractic care is generally a great alternative.

When chiropractic care is combined with physical therapy, it has been shown to slow the progression of the disease while improving a patient’s quality of life.

Headaches – Even Migraines

Both tension and migraine headaches can often be traced to your back. Spinal issues or back misalignment can create a strain on your muscles as they attempt to compensate. This additional strain can trigger tension and migraine headaches. Chiropractic adjustments can help to align the back and in turn, the muscles can relax, and prevent future headaches from arriving. In fact, there are over 200 studies that confirm these results!

Improve Neurological Conditions

Neurological conditions can be caused by a wide variety of reasons. Chiropractic care for these conditions can help to increase both blood and cerebrospinal fluid which, in turn, delivers more oxygen to and removes waste from the skull, allowing the brain to have an increased ability to heal and function properly.

“Chiropractic care is one option that many expectant mothers have used to reduce several health and comfort issues associated with pregnancy”.

Prenatal Chiropractic Care

Pregnancy is often one of the happiest times in a family’s life. However, due to the nature of growing a child within your womb, the body also undergoes several significant physical changes. The body’s ability to foster life comes with compromises to a mother’s body which can cause discomfort and pain in the back and neck. Additionally, since the fetus is vulnerable to many medications, mothers are often hesitant to take medication to alleviate their discomfort.

Chiropractic appointments can be a solution to your back health during pregnancy since there are no contraindications for chiropractic care during pregnancy. This means that chiropractic care should always be considered an option for expectant mothers to support their health and overall comfort throughout their pregnancy.

Chiropractic Care FAQ

A chiropractic adjustment is the practice of applying a precise, controlled force in a specific direction to a spinal joint that is not moving normally. The goal of this natural therapy is to rectify structural alignment and remove nervous system obstruction, which results in better spinal function, less discomfort, and a better overall quality of life.

Chiropractic care improves the overall well-being of a patient, and as such, it can be used to treat a variety of health conditions that often impact the whole body.

Chiropractic care is largely regarded as one of the safest drug-free, non-invasive treatments for most back and neck issues. When performed by a licensed chiropractor, spinal adjustments are exceedingly safe.

Chiropractic adjustments have been found to improve the pregnancy experience and make delivery easier for many pregnant women. The adjustments are made to fit the stage of pregnancy and the individual needs of each patient. Visit our Prenatal Chiropractic Care page for more information.

Chiropractic treatments can be beneficial for children. Young people are very physically active and are often subject to a variety of falls and blows as a result of everyday activities and participation in sports. Back and neck pain, headaches, stiffness, tightness, and discomfort are all common signs of these types of injuries. Chiropractic treatment is always tailored to the specific needs of each patient, which includes specialized treatment for children.

Most health insurance plans, including major medical plans, Medicare, some Medicaid programs, and Blue Cross Blue Shield policies, will cover chiropractic services.

The involved nature of chiropractic treatment is essentially what makes multiple visits needed. A patient must visit a chiropractor’s clinic to receive treatment. By comparison, a general doctor’s course of treatment often involves pre-determined plans that can be carried out at home (i.e. taking a course of antibiotics once a day for a couple of weeks).

A chiropractor may provide continuous care, thus making a certain number of visits sometimes necessary.
