Chiropractic Care Q & A

Total Health Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Center

What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care is a form of hands-on manual medicine that focuses on the musculoskeletal system. Doctors of chiropractic – also called chiropractors – offer adjustments, soft tissue therapy, and rehabilitation services to decrease pain, improve physical function, and restore normal motion to joints in the spine, arms, and legs.

At Total Health, the medical team includes doctors, chiropractors, and physical therapists to provide you with the best and most appropriate treatment for your needs so you get better quickly and safely.

What conditions can chiropractic care help?

Chiropractic care can be used to treat a range of musculoskeletal complaints, including:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Headaches, including migraines
  • Joint pain
  • Pregnancy aches and pains
  • Stiffness and decreased range of motion
  • Shoulder injuries, including frozen shoulder syndrome
  • Knee injuries
  • Tendonitis
  • Neuropathy

 

Depending on your diagnosis, your chiropractor outlines a treatment plan that may include chiropractic adjustments, electrical stimulation, therapeutic ultrasound, deep tissue laser, or physical therapy. The team incorporates many therapeutic treatment options to provide you with the best care possible.

What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment is a hands-on procedure to restore motion to a joint and decrease pain. After your chiropractic exam, your chiropractor may recommend a chiropractic adjustment to improve the function of your joints – either in your spine, arms, or legs – and reduce your pain.

During the adjustment, your chiropractor places their hands over the affected joint. They may give you instructions for breathing or relaxing your muscles in the area. When you’re ready, your chiropractor applies a quick, direct force with their hands to your joint. You may hear a cracking sound or feel a shifting movement.

Cracking and popping sounds during a chiropractic adjustment are common and come from carbon dioxide gases within the joint. The chiropractic adjustment quickly shifts the joint into a normal, mobile position and may cause a release of carbon dioxide pressure within the joint, which creates the noise.

Chiropractic adjustments are a safe and noninvasive procedure to relieve back pain, neck pain, and headaches when compared to other options – including over-the-counter and prescription medications, injections, and surgery.
