The Health & Wellness Clinic offers chiropractic care that targets the underlying cause of your headaches, back pain, and various other medical conditions. Our clinic also provides exercise therapy in addition to at-home techniques to assist with your chiropractic care.
The Definition of Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care is a modality of medicine that consists of a chiropractor manipulating your spine because it has an effect on your back as well as your overall well-being. Our chiropractor believes that issues with your spine can attribute to problems other than back pain. Moreover, chiropractic care has also grown to include treatments beyond therapies that target your spine.
Treatments Provided by a Chiropractor
The most well-known chiropractic therapy is an adjustment. This particular treatment consists of a chiropractor positioning you on a table. The chiropractor will manually move the vertebrae in your back to relieve pressure on your discs as well as the surrounding soft tissue and nerves.
Spinal decompression is another common treatment a chiropractor uses in chiropractic therapy. This treatment also involves your chiropractor positioning you on a table. However, once you’re situated, the chiropractor will attach you to a series of pulleys and rigging. The device gently pulls on your spine to separate your discs from your vertebrae.
Massage therapy is sometimes an additional treatment that is recommended to help relieve back pain and promote healing. Your chiropractor may also recommend that you make some lifestyle and nutritional changes to optimize your chiropractic therapy.
Uses for Chiropractic Therapy
Chiropractic therapy is often associated with the relief of back pain from conditions and injuries, such as the following:
- Herniated discs
- Bulging discs
- Degenerative disc disease
- Sprains and strains
A chiropractic adjustment can also help relieve headaches, migraines, neck pain, whiplash, arthritis, and fibromyalgia. In addition, a chiropractor can treat sports injuries and other personal injuries that affect parts of your musculoskeletal system besides your back.
Chiropractic therapy can relieve pain, help you regain mobility, and support the healing process for several different medical conditions. Best of all, our treatments are non-invasive and non-pharmaceutical.
