We receive many of the same chiropractic questions from our patients. While each case that we see is different, most chiropractic faqs have to do with the benefits and approaches of chiropractic care. If you do not see your chiropractic question here, call our office and we’ll be happy to talk with you about it.
What is chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a highly respected healthcare field that focuses on the relationship between the body’s main structures – the skeleton, the muscles and the nerves.
What are the effects of chiropractic care?
Chiropractic care often results in better posture, improved range of joint motion, decreased pain from disc and nerve problems, and better overall health.
What are the differences in medical care and wellness care?
In standard medical care, symptoms are treated from the outside, such as with medication or surgery. In wellness care, we encourage the body’s internal natural healing ability by removing causes of discomfort that are inside the body, such as compressed nerves.
How does chiropractic care work?
Chiropractors focus on the proper alignment of the musculoskeletal system. Muscle and joint pains result when any parts of this system of muscles, joints, bones, tendons, and ligaments fall out of place. Chiropractors work to keep all of these components in line.
How can I lessen pain medication dependence with chiropractic care?
Compressed nerves are a big reason for headaches, back pain, neck pain and more. Many people get used to taking pain medications to mask these symptoms, but when chiropractors relieve pressure from the nerves in these areas, they alleviate much of the pain naturally.
What are some drug-free alternatives for pain management?
Regular chiropractic care, massage therapy, and adding the right foods to your diet can decrease pain substantially. By keeping your muscles and joints healthy and eating foods that are rich in antioxidants and vitamins, you can enjoy a pain-free, all-natural way of life.
