Chiropractic Care Q & A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care focuses on your body’s ability to heal itself and emphasizes the alignment of your spine. Improper spinal alignment (subluxations) can affect the health and function of your spinal cord, surrounding nerves, and soft tissues.

During a chiropractic appointment, the chiropractors at Integrated Spine & Disc use manual techniques to improve the alignment of your spinal joints. They can also manipulate other joints in your body to relieve pressure on nerves that contribute to inflammation and pain.

In combination with chiropractic adjustments, Integrated Spine & Disc also offers customized exercise therapy plans to support the healing of damaged soft tissues and joints.

When should I consider chiropractic care?

You may benefit from chiropractic care if you have persistent pain or limited mobility that you can’t treat with medications and other therapies.

The chiropractors at Integrated Spine & Disc can use chiropractic techniques to treat neck pain and back pain that results from:

  • Sciatica
  • Arthritis
  • Whiplash
  • Herniated discs
  • Auto accident injury

Chiropractic adjustments can also relieve pain from headaches and migraines.

In addition to scheduling chiropractic care for pain and mobility issues, you can also book routine appointments on a preventive basis to reduce your risk for additional injuries.

What can I expect during a chiropractic care visit?

To ensure chiropractic care is right for you, the chiropractors at Integrated Spine & Disc review your medical history, your symptoms, and your current health during your initial visit. They customize a treatment plan to address pain and other symptoms that affect your musculoskeletal health.

While you lie comfortably on an exam table, the chiropractors at Integrated Spine & Disc use a series of quick but gentle movements to realign the vertebrae of your spine. They can also use specialized instruments to move your spine and other joints into their proper position.

Chiropractic adjustments shouldn’t be painful. It’s common, however, to feel a popping sensation or hear cracking noises during your adjustment as your joints release trapped gases.

After your treatment, you may have some mild soreness in the treatment area. The chiropractors at Integrated Spine & Disc can recommend stretches and other exercises you can do at home to strengthen your spine and joints and support your healing process.
