What Is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the muscular, skeletal, and nervous systems. It uses a variety of hands-on techniques and other modalities to improve body functions. The main form of treatment is called an adjustment. An adjustment can be performed in many different ways, but the underlying intent of each technique is to restore motion to a joint. The effect is improved range of motion, reduced pain, decreased muscle tension, decreased irritation to the nervous system, and improved physical performance. Combining the adjustment with other modalities, such as manual therapies and rehabilitative exercises, can provide relief for acute injuries and chronic conditions and maintains a state of physical wellbeing.

Types of Chiropractor Care

Diversified Technique

A style of manual joint manipulation. The doctor isolates the joint being treated and then uses a quick, low force, motion to cause movement at that joint to improve mobility.

Activator Technique

A low-force technique using a spring-loaded tool to help restore joint motion. Ideal for patients who feel too much pain for manual adjustments. It’s also a good option when you don’t like the sound of “popping” joints

Drop Technique

A momentum-based technique used to restore joint movement. Many chiropractic treatment table designs allow areas to rise then “drop” when applying pressure. The momentum of the dropping motion is what moves the desired joint.

Flexion Distraction Technique

This technique is typically used on the lower back by applying traction. It helps to improve joint motion and overall function by stretching out the surrounding muscles.

Extremity Mobilization

This refers to the manipulation and mobilization techniques performed on the joints of the arms and legs. This technique aids in the restoration of proper joint mechanics.

Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Techniques

The intent of these techniques is to reduce fascial adhesions, or areas, where the connective tissues, are not gliding over each other the way they are supposed to.

Therapeutic Massage

Massage therapy is used with chiropractic care to decrease muscle tension, improve circulation, increase mobility, and improve recovery from strains and sprains.

Rehabilitative Stretches & Exercises

Various stretches and exercises that promote flexibility to maintain good joint motion. These techniques encourage good joint mobility and stability.

Kinesiology Taping

This technique is popular because of its effectiveness and usefulness in reducing swelling, providing support, and enhancing recovery and soft tissue healing.

Client Reviews

Dr. Amanda rescued me from pain again. Yesterday, before my BNI meeting, I rotated my hip. Very painful. As soon as I arrived at the meeting, I told her. She offered to see me at her office immediately after. She adjusted my hip, treated it with e-stim and ice. By the end of the day, I was able to go to a yoga class! Without her care, my holidays would have been miserable. Dr. Amanda earns the highest recommendation that I can give and my eternal thanks!

I was having a lot of trouble with my hands and arms falling asleep during normal work activities as a painter. Also, I was being woken up during the night with pains in my right arm and hand. I went to Dr. Amanda and she worked on pinched nerves in my neck which was causing the problem. After a couple of sessions I noticed I was not being woken up at night anymore and my arms and hands were not falling asleep during work activities.

FAQs

Are chiropractors real doctors?

Yes. In short. Doctors of Chiropractic and Doctors of Medicine have similar training. The main differences are in the additional focus areas of study. For Doctors of Chiropractic, that’s spinal manipulation, nutrition, physiotherapy, and advanced imaging. For Doctors of Medicine, that’s pharmacology, immunology, and general surgery.

Do insurance plans cover Chiropractic?

Yes. Chiropractic care is included in most health insurance plans, including major medical plans, workers’ compensation, Medicare, some Medicaid plans, and Blue Cross Blue Shield plans for federal employees, among others. Chiropractic care is also available to active-duty members of the armed forces at more than 60 military bases and is available to veterans at 36 major veterans medical facilities.

Do you take x-rays?

X-rays usually are not needed due to the thoroughness of our exams. If we think an x-ray is warranted, we will refer out accordingly and then can review images and results with you in detail.

Will it hurt?

Usually not, but a small percentage of patients have some post-treatment soreness. If you experience soreness, please let your doctor know so that they can make a recommendation. The benefits of our chiropractic care will far outweigh the temporary soreness.

What happens at my first appointment?

At your first appointment, the doctor will go through a consultation and perform a thorough examination.

In most cases, treatment begins on the first day!

Why do my joints keep "going out?"

There are a lot of different reasons. Here are the most common reasons, joints “go out”. Posture and habits, repetitive stress, cumulative microtrauma. Although it may feel like it, joints aren’t usually “out of place,” but rather stuck at a certain point along the normal arc of movement.

If I start going to a chiropractor, will I have to go for the rest of my life?

You don’t have to, but you might want to! 🙂

Is it safe for infants/children? During pregnancy?

Yes. We use a personalized approach with Chiropractic treatment, which means different techniques, for different situations.
