What Can a Chiropractor Treat?
Chiropractic care can be useful for both adults and children. Through chiropractic adjustments, our chiropractors are able to treat a wide range of chronic pain conditions that our patients may face.
Most commonly, we treat issues with chronic migraines, back pain, and neck pain. Also, chiropractors are licensed to treat conditions that affect your musculoskeletal system, which includes the muscles, ligaments, and joints.
How is an Adjustment Performed?
Adjustments help to relieve tension in your body, relieving pain and allowing you to relax. This form of physical manipulation is perfected during a chiropractor’s extensive training, and should not be performed at home.
Your chiropractor will use either their hands or an instrument to manipulate the joints of your body in order to restore or enhance joint function. Adjustments are typically centered around the spine, and the goal is to reduce inflammation in the joints and relieve pain.
What Happens at the First Visit?
New patients of Unruh Spine Centers can expect their first visit to include:
- Filling out patient forms.
- Consulting with your doctor about your condition.
- Physical exam and x-rays.
- Diagnosis and treatment plan.
How Many Appointments Will I Need?
While other conditions may be controlled out of the office, chiropractic care must happen in person with your doctor. This means that you will likely require regularly scheduled adjustments to care for your condition in addition to chronic, and/or preventive care.
