Chiropractic Care Q&A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care is a natural, hands-on therapy technique that uses gentle and precise spinal adjustments to correct misalignments and alleviate spinal nerve stress. The overriding objective of this effective, non-invasive form of health care is to address problems in your nervous system, which are vital to the health and function of every part of your body. Because your nervous system is rooted in your vertebrae, even the slightest misalignment or malfunction of your spine can cause pain or impaired function, even in areas of your body that may not be close to your spine. A chiropractic doctor can be the first line of defense against pain.

“The essential services provided by chiropractors represent a primary approach for the prevention, diagnosis and conservative management of back pain and spinal disorders that can often enable patients to reduce or avoid the need for riskier treatments, such as prescription opioid pain medications and surgery,” according to the American Chiropractic Association.

What are the benefits of chiropractic care?

Lower back pain, neck pain, and chronic headaches are the main reasons most people decide to see a chiropractor. As a natural, holistic healing method that doesn’t involve drugs or surgery, chiropractic care is an ideal option for patients who are looking for pain relief, but want to avoid prescription medication or more invasive medical treatments. Some first-time patients may have already tried traditional treatment methods without success. Chiropractors take a whole-person approach to wellbeing by acknowledging that there are many factors that affect your health, including exercise, nutrition, sleep, environment, stress, and genetics. Although chiropractors do use spinal manipulation to make necessary structural adjustments, they also give their patients beneficial lifestyle recommendations, and empower them to be an active participant in their own health. Chiropractic care can help with a wide range of problems, including:

  • Postural problems
  • Low back pain
  • Herniated discs
  • Sciatica
  • Chronic headaches
  • Neck pain
  • Sprains and strains
  • Degenerative arthritis
  • Sports injuries
  • Chronic pain
  • Carpal tunnel
  • TMJ, or jaw disorders
  • Knee pain
  • Shoulder pain

How does chiropractic treatment begin?

The experienced chiropractors at Ultimate Health Medical Clinic begin your initial consultation by discussing your health issues in detail and taking your medical history, including any pertinent family history. After that, you’ll undergo a comprehensive physical exam. Based on your medical history, health concerns, and your physical assessment, the team has enough information to form a working diagnosis. This helps them decide if imaging or lab tests, such as an MRI, CT scan, or X-ray, are required to confirm the diagnosis. Once a diagnosis is confirmed, the team begins to formulate a customized treatment plan that addresses specific alignment issues. The plan may also include chiropractic massage therapy, spinal decompression, and specific exercise recommendations, depending on the nature of your problem.
