Health Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Adjust your thinking and your health, with our licensed chiropractors.

Join the millions of Americans who have not only found relief from back pain, but also a pathway to wellness with chiropractic's natural, drug­-free approach to healthcare.

Your spinal column, made up of 24 independent vertebrae, is what allows your body to move, twist, and bend through every motion of your busy day. It also encases and helps protect the delicate central nervous system that controls and coordinates every muscle, tissue and organ of the body. This is why we believe the first step to an active lifestyle is a properly functioning spine.

When two or more vertebrae aren't functioning together properly, it is what many chiropractors refer to as a subluxation or a misalignment. These subluxations are actually joint dysfunctions that can cause you to experience pain, discomfort, decreased mobility, or many other symptoms and conditions. Joint dysfunctions often go unnoticed and can cause miscommunication between your brain and body.

Joint Dysfunctions in the spine may eventually lead to symptoms in other parts or joints of the body as well. These symptoms are your body’s only way of letting you know something is wrong. Unfortunately, the absence of pain is not an indication of health. By the time pain and symptoms appear the problem may have been present for months, even years. The great news is that you can help prevent these types of symptoms and conditions with routine chiropractic care.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Are all patients given the same type care?

A: In actuality, there are three stages of chiropractic care:

Relief

If you are experiencing aches, pains and or decreased range of motion, our licensed chiropractors will work to identify the source of the issue and eliminate joint restrictions, also known as subluxations. Subluxations can get in the way of proper nerve communication from the brain to the body–often resulting in pain and discomfort.

While seeking relief, your doctor may recommend multiple visits per week, for two to four weeks, or until the pain is reduced. Your doctor will likely also recommend home therapies such as icing and/or stretching at home.

Recovery

Just because pain and discomfort begins to subside doesn’t mean you should stop receiving care. Muscle and other soft tissue damage may still be present even though the symptoms of pain are gone. Recovery care works to support the body’s ability to heal itself by maintaining proper communication throughout the entire body.

During recovery, your doctor may recommend visiting one to two times per week as well as strengthening exercises to work on at home.

Wellness

You’ve heard the phrase “no pain, no gain,” right? Well, chiropractic is a little different. Even when you are not experiencing pain or discomfort, you can gain from routine care. While routine chiropractic can help improve health and well-being; it can also serve as an early detection system for new problems.

Once you’ve found relief and have fully recovered, your doctor will typically recommend maintenance visits along with a balanced diet and exercise regimen.

Q: Does Chiropractic Care Hurt and is it Safe?

A: Chiropractic is the largest, non-invasive, drugless and safest forms of health care available. Statistically, patient risk is substantially lower when receiving chiropractic care as opposed to medical care, where the use of prescription drugs and surgery pose a greater risk. Chiropractic adjustment is a highly controlled procedure that rarely causes discomfort because minimal force and gentle pressure are used. In fact, most patients feel relief immediately following treatment.

Q: Will I be Sore following a Chiropractic Adjustment?

A: Any reported soreness after an initial adjustment has been described as similar to that associated with starting a new exercise program. Drinking plenty of water, using an ice pack, and engaging in light stretching after your first visit can help ease any discomfort to promote healing.

Q: How Long will my Visits Take?

A: This all depends on the length and severity of your condition, however, most first visits may last as much as 30 minutes. Follow-up visits are much less, often as little as 5-10 minutes.

Q: What is the Popping Noise when an Adjustment is Delivered?

A: The popping sounds you hear are your joints releasing tiny pockets of gases. A chiropractic adjustment does not affect the bones of either side of the joint, but rather the connective tissue that holds the joint together.

Q: How Often will I need to Return?

A: At the end of your first visit, your doctor will determine the best course of treatment for your specific needs. The frequency in which you receive chiropractic care is strictly up to the professional judgment of the Doctor of Chiropractic and will vary from individual to individual depending on your presenting condition and overall goals. Just as regular visits to the dentist are necessary for good dental hygiene, routine visits to a Doctor of Chiropractic for proper spinal function and health maintenance are also important.

Our chiropractors treat patients by delivering a chiropractic adjustment. If, during the course of your exam, the doctor feels that care is contraindicated, you will be referred to the appropriate healthcare provider and/or facility.

If you have specific questions, needs or concerns, you are always welcome to call The Joint nearest you and speak with one of our friendly staff members. Find a clinic near you.
