Chiropractic Q & A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic is a type of medical care focused on aligning the spine so that the whole body works in harmony. Spinal misalignments, called subluxations, can affect the way your body functions. Chiropractic is an alternative treatment option for health concerns involving muscles, joints, connective tissue, and bones.

Your chiropractor is specially trained in musculoskeletal adjustments. Chiropractic adjustments involve controlled but sudden application of pressure along the spine to realign it. Chiropractors use their hands or small devices to assist in making adjustments.

When the spine is aligned, your body’s natural healing power is enhanced. Chiropractic offers pain relief and other benefits without the need for invasive procedures or medications.

What can chiropractic care treat?

Chiropractic care is best known for treating back, neck, and head pain. But the benefits of chiropractic care extend throughout the body. When it’s done well, chiropractic care can improve the function of your nervous system, muscles, and organs.

It’s time to learn more about what chiropractic can offer if you suffer from:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Headaches
  • Joint pain elsewhere in the body
  • A nervous system condition
  • Reduced mobility 
  • Stress

By correcting subluxations, chiropractic care improves overall wellness and bodily function. It restores mobility, promotes tissue healing, and helps alleviate acute and chronic pain.

How do chiropractic adjustments feel?

Many people new to chiropractic care are concerned that adjustments are abrupt and painful. But the truth is that adjustments are generally comfortable and many patients experience immediate relief following an adjustment.

At Restorative Wellness Center, patient comfort is the priority. Your chiropractic treatment plan is customized for you, whether you need a soft or firm approach. If you’re uncomfortable at any time, let the staff know.

Expect to sit or lie on a padded chiropractic table for your adjustment. You should wear loose-fitting clothing to your chiropractic appointment. While you remain fully clothed during your adjustment, loose clothing helps keep you comfortable. 

The team applies controlled pressure to specific points along your spine to realign the spinal joint. You might lie on your stomach, back, or side for adjustments. In some cases, you may sit upright.

Almost everyone can see benefits from chiropractic adjustment. Make an appointment at Restorative Wellness Center by phone or book online to find out if treatment could be right for you.
