Chiropractic Care Q & A

How does chiropractic care improve my health and well-being?

Chiropractors are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of problems affecting your musculoskeletal and nervous systems, with a special expertise in neck, back, and joint conditions. Maintaining your spinal health does more than relieve back and neck pain; it also improves your overall health.

As chiropractic treatments improve your spine, they relieve pressure on the nerves and blood vessels that serve every part of your body. In addition to relieving pain, this change supports your body’s natural healing ability.

How does physical therapy relieve pain?

The techniques used by physical therapists relieve pain and promote healing by:

  • Increasing blood flow
  • Diminishing inflammation
  • Increasing range of motion
  • Promoting flexibility
  • Building muscle strength
  • Restoring balance
  • Improving body mechanics

Your physical therapist develops a customized plan to meet your specific recovery and rehabilitation needs.

What health conditions benefit from chiropractic care?

Since chiropractic care focuses on your back and neck, it’s often the first line of treatment for conditions such as:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Whiplash
  • Herniated disc
  • Facet joint arthritis
  • Sprains and strains
  • Sciatica
  • Facet joint arthritis
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Subluxation

Subluxation occurs when one or more vertebrae slip out of their normal alignment within the spine.

What health conditions benefit from physical therapy?

Physical therapy is frequently used to treat a wide range of orthopedic conditions and to help you recover after surgery. While physical therapy is beneficial for the conditions treated by chiropractors, it’s also recommended for problems such as:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Tennis elbow
  • Meniscus tears
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Ankle sprains
  • Repetitive stress injuries

Participating in physical therapy is essential for recovery from injuries. It helps you to regain optimal strength and increases your ability to return to the same level of performance you had before your injury.

What chiropractic and physical therapy treatments will I receive?

Chiropractors and physical therapists are highly trained in numerous techniques. Since both specialists employ manual therapies, some of their modalities overlap.

Chiropractic techniques include:

  • Spinal manipulation
  • Spinal mobilization
  • Myofascial release
  • Gentle neck manipulation
  • Mechanical traction
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Decompression therapy

Physical therapy modalities include:

  • Therapeutic massage
  • Therapeutic exercise
  • Gait training
  • Balance training
  • Resistance training
  • Therapeutic ultrasound
  • Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS)

Your chiropractic and physical therapy treatments may include exercises that restore function. Your regimen is based on your functional goals, whether you simply need to regain muscle strength or you want to return to competitive sports.
