Although chiropractic adjustments have become one of the most sought after forms of complementary health care over the past 20 or 30 years, there are many people who are still unsure about what chiropractic care is and what conditions it can be used to treat. It is often associated with “back-cracking,” a reference to the core treatment technique that chiropractors use when performing spinal adjustments. Chiropractic treatments, however, entail much more than just spinal manipulation. Our chiropractor in Sacramento, Dr. Gregg Anderson, D.C., outlines the full array of care that comprises an effective chiropractic treatment plan:
We always start our journey with new patients by thoroughly reviewing medical history and getting a detailed overview of their specific lifestyle, emotional state, and nutritional habits. This is followed by a comprehensive physical examination. One of the core principles of chiropractic care is to always look for underlying causes of pain and discomfort. This means that we go beyond the surface issues to try and identify other contributing reasons for the problem. Getting a fuller picture of the root causes of pain helps us to better create long-term pain relief solutions for our patients, rather than just quick, temporary fixes.
Chiropractic adjustments allow your practitioner to shift any misaligned joints back into place. Pains in various areas of the body can often be caused by pinched, torn or otherwise damaged discs that connect the vertebrae in the spinal column. Spinal manipulation helps to realign joints so that any pressure on the associated nerves is removed, thereby relieving the pain.
In addition to spinal manipulation, chiropractors prescribe corrective exercises that can be done in the office during regular visits as well as at home. One of the most beneficial aspects of chiropractic care is its focus on all-natural healing. Instead of masking pain or discomfort through medication, the idea is to build effective lifestyle habits that promote ongoing wellness. By following the regimen of exercises on a regular basis, you become a partner in your own health care, which greatly reduces recurrences of injury and chronic illness.
As an added component to the corrective exercises you do independently, in-office physiotherapy is helpful in that it offers guidance and a chance to check-in, ask questions and receive advice on the best ways to optimize physical performance, heal faster and build up your strength and flexibility.
All of the above-listed services encompass chiropractic treatment as a whole. Dr. Anderson recommends this exact sequence when treating his patients for any type of chiropractic recovery or maintenance treatments.
If you’d like to learn more about how chiropractic care can help you maintain optimal health and wellness in a more holistic way, give our office a call. We’re always happy to educate new patients on the benefits of regularly incorporating chiropractic treatments into their lifestyle.
Even better, call today and set up an appointment for your no-obligation consultation -- you’ll be glad you did!
I want to add a reminder that unless a chiropractor is also a licensed physical therapist, or employs one, we cannot advertise that we offer physical therapy. We can and do offer various forms of physiotherapy modalities. I changed the wording below.
