Chiropractic Care Q & A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care is a method of healthcare that corrects misalignments and reduces spinal nerve stress through the use of gentle and precise spinal adjustments. The primary goal of this safe and beneficial type of manual therapy is to diagnose and treat spinal and musculoskeletal conditions including bulged and herniated discs and pinched nerves. 

A pinched nerve in your lower back may cause lower back pain or sciatica pain that radiates into your leg, for example, while a misalignment in your upper back or neck can cause radiating arm pain or chronic migraines. Because your nervous system is rooted within your spine, misalignments of your vertebrae cause pain and/or impaired function – either in your back or anywhere along the affected nerve path. 

Chiropractic is the best way to get out of acute pain from severely herniated discs. It’s also the smartest option for managing chronic musculoskeletal conditions including degenerative discs,  osteoarthritis and chronic joint pain. Many people also use chiropractic as part of a healthy lifestyle. By betting regular chiropractic alignments, you can greatly reduce (and even prevent) any ill health that’s the result of pinched nerves. Ongoing chiropractic care is excellent for reducing stress and long term wear/tear on the structure of the body. It also combats postural problems and helps you maintain optimum function so your body has 100% nerve supply at all times. This is very important in having a healthy immune system as well. 

Benefits of chiropractic care

Many first-time patients seek chiropractic care to treat chronic back, neck, or headache pain, often after having exhausted more traditional means like drug therapy. As a holistic healing method, chiropractic care is a natural alternative for patients who want effective pain relief, but who also want to avoid prescription medication or surgery and other invasive treatment options.

Chiropractic care can help solve a wide range of problems, including:

  • Postural problems
  • Chronic back, neck, or headache pain
  • Sciatica pain
  • Bulging or herniated spinal discs
  • Degenerative arthritis
  • Sprains and strains; overuse injuries
  • Sports or accident injuries
  • Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS)


Regarding most back and neck pain conditions, chiropractic is often the best place to start. Besides being natural, it’s also one of the fastest ways to get relief. The type of method used for chiropractic treatment makes a big difference but unfortunately much of the public is unaware of this. While all chiropractic care is safe, some methods are more effective than others. So when you’re looking for a good hiropractor, you’re rolling the dice when you search Google for ‘chiropractor near me’ as to whether or you find a chiropractor who uses a good method or not.

At Solutions Integrated Medicine, most of our chiropractic patients start seeing significant relief in the first 1-3 adjustments. This is because we practice a specific method of chiropractic called Gonstead. For treatment of acute discs and best way to manage chronic joint pain, it is the gold standard in chiropractic.

Is chiropractic care safe?

Many first-time patients express some amount of hesitation at their initial chiropractic appointment, and it’s only natural to be slightly skeptical of treatment methods that are commonly labeled as “alternative.” But in reality, chiropractic care combines the best of both worlds: A physician’s in-depth knowledge of human anatomy and function with the intuitive approach of a hands-on healer. 

As a patient, you can rest assured knowing that your doctor of chiropractic completed a doctorate program equal to your medical doctors. Unlike drug therapy, which often comes with unwanted side effects, chiropractic treatments address the underlying cause of pain or injury to promote recovery and healing, naturally. There are no adverse reactions or side effects.  

Chiropractic care is safe for all ages, from newborn infants to seniors. It is also safe for pregnant women (however without x-rays) and been shown to reduce pain and duration during labor. It’s also safe for osteoporotic patients, patients with spinal fractures and even many post-surgical cases. Your doctor of chiropractic is also well trained to determine if your condition is not a chiropractic case and warrants referral.
