Chiropractic care involves a series of manual manipulations and adjusting techniques that improve musculoskeletal conditions and nervous system disorders. It’s an effective option to treat chronic pain and other health conditions without surgery or medication.
The chiropractors at RehabOne Medical Group uses chiropractic adjustments to treat:
Your doctor might recommend chiropractic care alone or combined with additional therapies to help you avoid invasive treatments.
Prior to chiropractic care, your doctor reviews your medical history and symptoms. Your doctor completes an exam and might order X-rays or other tests to determine the cause of your medical condition or pain.
During a chiropractic visit, you lie down on a comfortable, padded chiropractic table. A chiropractor at RehabOne Medical Group places you in various positions. They use a series of spinal manipulation techniques, or adjustments, to apply a controlled force to muscles and joints and push them beyond the usual range of motion. You might hear cracking or popping sounds during treatment.
The result is pain relief, better mobility, reduced muscle tightness, and faster tissue healing. Your treatment isn’t painful, but you might experience aching, fatigue, or mild soreness after your session. Symptoms typically resolve within a day or two.
Your chiropractor might recommend a series of treatments to help you achieve the most desirable results. The number of sessions you require is based on your health and the severity of pain, but you may benefit from 6-10 visits. Ongoing chiropractic care is often advised to keep your pain under control.
Your doctor lets you know if you’re a good candidate for chiropractic care based on your health and symptoms. Nearly everyone benefits from chiropractic adjustments, but this treatment might not be right for you if you have severe osteoporosis, cancer in your spine, known bone abnormalities, or are at risk for stroke.
