If you have yet to experience your first adjustment, you are missing out on some great holistic care that can help you with injuries and help promote a more healthy lifestyle. Like with any medical treatment, it can be scary going into a chiropractor’s office for the first time, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
Chiropractic care is one of the safest musculoskeletal treatments out there, and chiropractors are trained to take care of the human body to ensure proper nerve flow and good health. A chiropractor can treat you for a variety of issues, the most common being back pain. Check out these frequently asked questions people have about chiropractic:
What conditions do chiropractors treat?
While chiropractors are known to have great success in treating the symptoms of back and neck pain, there are many other maladies that they can effectively address. Most chiropractors have experience treating patients of all ages, from infant to geriatric. Chiropractic care focuses on the whole body and treating the problem, not just the symptoms. They can provide care for most musculoskeletal issues; they can also provide health and wellness advice. There is a wide range of health problems that they can address, from colic to whiplash, your chiropractor most likely can provide helpful treatment.
Is chiropractic care safe?
Chiropractic is one of the safest treatments out there because it does not rely on invasive measures that require medications or surgeries. The hands-on approach can safely address health issues while putting the patient’s mind at ease. There is very little risk to chiropractic care; in fact, the few individuals who experience soreness following an adjustment typically report it subsiding within a day at the most. Chiropractors can adequately assess a patient and understand the techniques they need to use to ensure the safest treatment possible.
Is chiropractic treatment ongoing?
Just like you go to the gym regularly and the dentist regularly, the same should be done with your chiropractor. Chiropractic care can help ensure you a pain-free and healthy life, and routine adjustments are a part of it. Many patients feel great following just one adjustment, but to reap the full benefits, you should see your chiropractor regularly. Subluxations or misalignments in the spine can occur without you even knowing it. Your chiropractor can address these issues and make sure that you are functioning at your optimal level.
