Chiropractic care is a primary contact health care professional concerned with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of injuries relating to the neuromusculoskeletal system.
The intent of a Chiropractic treatment is to improve and enhance the overall performance of the body. This improvement leads to a decrease in pain, stronger joints, better athletic performance and easier activities of daily living.
The body was created to adapt to the everyday physical stresses that it encounters, but that’s not always the case. When the body can’t adapt, injury occurs and pain ensues.
Chiropractic care is effective at treating all regions of the body, from head to toe, including injuries to the neck, back, head, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, ankles, and feet. These injuries include muscles strains, sprains, athletic injuries, repetitive strain injuries, tendonopathies, rotator cuff injuries, and many more.
Treatment sessions involve an integrated approach to treatment, tailored to the specific needs of the patient. Integrated treatments combine a variety of manual techniques in order to address all components of an injury. The various techniques include: ART/STT, Graston Technique, acupuncture, modalities (IFC, microcurrent, Ultrasound, TENS, VMTX), active rehabilitation, and joint manipulation.
Chiropractors look at the body as a whole system, so treatment plans focus on more than just the injured area. Injuries are generally a result of a dysfunction in several parts of the body, so treatment plans typically involve a broader spectrum than just treating the injury site.
Most importantly, our Chiropractic care will provide you with an honest opinion of your injury and health status. We know injuries and the human body best, and we will use this knowledge to help develop a treatment plan that works best for you. Chiropractors are always keeping their education up to date to provide the most effective diagnosis and treatment plans.
Most extended health plans have coverage for Chiropractic care, be sure to check with your provider.
