Mention going to the chiropractor, and most folks think it’s just about getting some bones adjusted. Au contraire!
Chiropractic medicine is about so much more. It is a licensed health care profession that emphasizes the body’s ability to heal itself. Treatment typically involves manual therapy—often including spinal manipulation—as well as the use of an activator (which patients usually refer to as “the clicky thing.”)
But we might also use other forms of treatment such as electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, and decompression therapy.
And we may recommend exercise and nutritional counseling.
Chiropractic care is highly beneficial as an alternative to pain medications.
After a thorough consultation and examination, we take x-rays and develop a working diagnosis. Next, we establish a personalized care plan and start your treatment.
There are many types of adjustments that can be performed, and we will discuss what will make you the most comfortable while giving you the most improvement.
For patients with chronic back pain or neck pain caused by a damaged disc, spinal decompression therapy may be used. The same goes for patients with herniated, protruding, or bulging discs, or those with spinal stenosis, sciatica, or even failed surgery.
The success of decompression therapy depends on the skill of the doctor, including knowing how to use the computerized traction head well. Proper assessment and the use of pre-programmed patterns of distraction and relaxation may permit disc material to be pulled back within the normal confines of the disc. This allows healing to occur.
The number of sessions needed and your specific treatment plan will be determined by the doctor after your examination. In almost all cases, the treatments are completely painless. In fact, some patients fall asleep during the spinal decompression session.
