Chiropractic Care Q & A
What Is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care is a drug-free form of healthcare for the treatment of pain and mobility problems. A chiropractic doctor employs spinal adjustments to correct misalignments caused either by direct injury or prolonged improper body positions. Spinal adjustments enable the body to heal naturally by restoring proper function to the nervous system.
Even the slightest misalignment in a person’s spine can result in poor bodily function and overall body health.
Chiropractic care entails an overall treatment plan that reduces the likelihood of injury, ensures a patient’s spine remains in optimal condition and maintains overall health at the highest level without the use of medication or surgery. Our state-of-the-art therapy ensures the improvement of health and freedom from chronic pain.
Why Choose Chiropractic Care?
Whether from a major incident, such as a motor vehicle accident or a minor slip and fall at work or the mall, the inevitable pain that follows can generally be treated with chiropractic care. Most of the patients appreciate that chiropractic care avoids the need for drugs or surgery. The patient doesn’t need drugs because a spinal adjustment enables normal nerve transmission and assists recuperation to occur naturally.
Through chiropractic care, the dedicated staff at MLC focuses on treating the patient’s neck, back, and extremity pain. The goal is to relieve patients’ pain as quickly as possible, so they can return to their normal daily activities. A key factor to this kind of treatment plan is that both doctor and patient work together to achieve the patient’s health goals.
What Is Involved With a Chiropractic Adjustment?
A chiropractic spinal adjustment involves therapists using their hands and small instruments to apply force to targeted regions of the spine. Sometimes called a “spinal manipulation,” chiropractic adjustments work to adjust a person’s structural alignment, which in turn, improves overall health.
An initial consultation with the chiropractic doctor will answer:
- When and how did the pain start?
- Where is the pain or discomfort?
- How can the pain be described: sharp, dull, throbbing, searing or burning?
- Did the pain begin as a result of an injury?
