What is Chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care is drug-free medical care that aims to resolve pain associated with disrupted nerves. Often times pain results from misalignment in your spine and leads to inflammation and related symptoms, such as back pain, headaches, neck pain, and other acute or chronic pain. Chiropractic care focuses on reducing these effects and restoring healthy function of your nerves and muscles.

Do Chiropractic treatments hurt? 

No. Widely recognized as noninvasive and medically safe, Chiropractic care is not generally painful. Depending on the underlying causes of your symptoms, you may experience mild and temporary soreness after your treatment. Most patients report immediate improvements, however, and find the process relaxing. Because you stay awake during treatment, you and your Chiropractor can discuss how you’re feeling throughout each session and address any discomfort straightaway.

What conditions does Chiropractic care treat?

Chiropractic care is not merely for back pain. It can provide significant relief from a broad range of musculoskeletal problems, from ongoing headaches and neck pain to decreased mobility or balance difficulties caused by aging or injury. The treatments may also provide additional benefits, such as boosted immune function, and help manage symptoms of disorders such as fibromyalgia.

You can also receive Chiropractic care for general wellness and preventative care, as well as lifestyle and nutritional guidance. To learn how the treatments might most benefit you, see a Chiropractor at South Lake Medical Center for an evaluation.

Are Chiropractors doctors?

Yes. Chiropractors are skilled, educated, licensed and credentialed doctors. They hold Doctor of Chiropractic degrees, which typically take 7-9 years to complete. During their training, Chiropractors focus more on anatomy, neurology, and nutrition than general or family doctors. They don’t prescribe medications but can play hugely important roles within your treatment team. 

What kinds of treatment do Chiropractors use?

Besides adjustments/manipulation, Chiropractors use many other forms of treatment to speed recovery. 

When should I see a Chiropractor? 

If you’re experiencing pain in your back, neck, shoulders, hips, knees, or spine, it’s a great time to see a Chiropractor. If you’re a high-level athlete, you may benefit from routine care regardless of any pain, to ensure that you’re able to consistently perform at your best. Improve your life!
