What is chiropractic care?

This health branch accentuates the body’s intrinsic, restorative power to heal itself without medicines or surgery. Chiropractic care focuses on neurological and musculoskeletal disorders and their effects on overall health. It comprises all-inclusive assessments, adjustments, and manipulation to correct physical imbalances and misalignment in your body. Chiropractors use a natural and holistic approach to relieving pain and improving health noninvasively and drug-free. Your chiropractor might also recommend workouts, massage, nutritional changes, and stretches.

What conditions are improved with chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care is effective in treating a variety of conditions. The service can improve back pain, headaches, neck pain, sciatica, joint pain, sports injuries, chronic pain conditions, and temporomandibular joint pain. Other than alleviating pain, chiropractic care can correct your posture and decrease your risk of future discomfort. Chiropractic care aims at helping you to live a pain-free, healthy, and active life.

What should you expect during a chiropractic evaluation?

When you go to a medical center for a chiropractic evaluation, the chiropractic specialist will take you through extensive consultation. At Shift Wellness, your doctor will review your medical history, inquire about your symptoms and lifestyle, including workout and diet habits.  The chiropractor will also perform a complete physical exam to feel your muscles, spine, joints and connective tissue. You may be asked to do some stretches, movements, or walk around.

How is chiropractic care performed?

Depending on your diagnosis during the initial evaluation, your chiropractor develops an individualized treatment plan to relieve your pain and address the underlying problem contributing to your pain.  Your provider can opt for chiropractic adjustments that place controlled force on a particular vertebra and other joints. The adjustments restore and correct misalignment for optimal body function and are not painful. You may hear some cracking or popping sound during the adjustments, which is the sound that comes from gas escaping from your joints.

Your chiropractor may also use assisted stretches or soft tissue manipulation to release muscle tension and pain that contributes or results from alignment hitches. While you can get immediate relief from your pain, most patients will require a series of chiropractic appointments to address the base root cause of your pain.

A healthy nervous system and spine are essential for the upkeep of optimum complete body health.  If you have musculoskeletal pain, call or schedule an appointment today with Shift Wellness for personalized and holistic chiropractic care.
