Chiropractic Care Q & A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care is a hands-on technique 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 address the problems in your nervous system that are impacting the health and function of other areas of your body.

Because your nervous system is rooted in your vertebrae, or spine, even the slightest deviation in spinal alignment can cause you to feel pain or experience impaired function — either in your back at the site or anywhere along the affected nerve path.

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.

What are the 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)

Chiropractic doctors don’t just focus on using spinal manipulation techniques to make needed structural adjustments; they also take steps to empower their patients to play an active role in their own health.

Taking a whole-person approach to a patient’s overall well-being is a hallmark of chiropractic medicine. The experienced team at Solutions Integrated Medicine recognizes that a variety of factors affect your health, including exercise, nutrition, sleep, environment, stress, and genetics.

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 chiropractic care is not only safer and more effective than ever, it’s leading the way in helping patients overcome injury, alleviate pain, and restore normal function.

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.
