When you make your first visit to a chiropractor, you will be thoroughly assessed and evaluated to determine the root cause of your pain. You will be asked about any injuries you may have suffered in the past, any illnesses you’ve had and other health information so we can gain a comprehensive understanding of what’s going on.
Once we understand the situation, we can create a customized treatment plan to reduce your pain and regain your mobility. The plan will vary based on where you are experiencing pain, its severity, the cause and other factors.
How Does Chiropractic Work?
Chiropractic works by using spinal adjustments or manipulation to relieve pressure on joints, bones, nerves and tissue, which in turn reduces pain and improves overall mobility.
The chiropractor will use short lever thrusts to release gas that is trapped in your joints. These adjustments are performed using the arms and body weight, and as the gas is released, there is often an audible cracking noise.
Chiropractic treatment is an all-natural approach to pain relief and doesn’t just mask the symptoms with painkillers. Our chiropractor will treat the cause of your pain to provide long-lasting relief so you can get back to your normal routine.
You may require several visits before you experience complete pain relief, and many people continue to have treatment even after the initial pain has subsided to ensure it doesn’t return.
You will notice that joints move more freely and you no longer experience pain when walking, sitting, reaching and performing other daily tasks that used to be uncomfortable or unbearable.
If you’ve been experiencing pain in any part of your body and are looking for all-natural pain relief, chiropractic care may be the answer you’ve been looking for.
