Chiropractic services are perfect for anyone looking for a natural and safe solution to their chronic or acute pain without the negative effects that medication can cause. Our treatments focus on pinpointing the source of your pain and eliminating the problem with natural and safe approaches.
Before we can treat you, we must first evaluate what treatment you will need. We always begin with a comprehensive examination. This is where we will analyze each patient based on their structural and functional capabilities to determine if and where the prospective patient has joint dysfunction and dynamic instability. Each exam will vary depending on the patient’s present symptoms.
Chiropractic care is ideal for patients who wish to treat the cause of their problem in a safe and natural way and not just mask their symptoms with potentially harmful or addictive medication. The Examination process will include several tests involving reflexes, structural postural analysis, movement assessments and other tests to diagnose your condition. If indicated and needed to accurately diagnose your condition, lab work, x-rays, CAT scans or MRI's can be ordered.
Our experienced doctors are skilled at “joint manipulation,” also commonly called “chiropractic adjustments.” The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile – or restricted in their movement – as a result of a tissue injury from trauma or from a disease process. Injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and reduced function. Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility, and alleviates pain and muscle tightness, allowing tissues to heal.
Some potential patients are a bit hesitant about the “popping” and “cracking” that may occur due to the adjustments. No worries! Our Doctors are skilled in many techniques, several of them do not require any cracking or popping!
While the spine is most commonly associated with manipulation and chiropractic, the Doctors are skilled at adjusting all joints including those in the feet, hands, wrists, knees, hips, and shoulders.
Chiropractic adjustments are our main form of treatment and are utilized in order to restore joint motion and improve function in the joints of the spine and extremities that are restricted or fixated. Before we can address the dynamic instability, we must first start with the joints and restore joint motion throughout the body.
Other treatment procedures the doctors may utilize within your visit can include soft tissue mobilization, and rehabilitative exercises/stretches. These specific protocols will help us address the patient’s primary conditions and provide them with the dynamic stability they need to get back to their activities as quickly as possible. These protocols will also help our patients from experiencing the setbacks that can occur during rehabilitation and help prevent future occurrences.
