Whether you're experiencing pain somewhere between your head and your toes, or you've recently been in a car accident, chiropractic care offers you a natural way to ease your pain. This type of treatment works directly with your spine, to help adjust nerve pathways throughout your body.
What Is Chiropractic Care?
When you visit a chiropractor, you will experience a myriad of alternative treatments. Some chiropractors use hands-on techniques to manipulate and adjust your spine, while others use gadgets that do something similar. Some also use machines that work to decompress the spinal cord.
This treatment works with the body's musculoskeletal structure, mainly the spine, and with the nerves. It's often used as a replacement for surgery and medications.
What Does Chiropractic Care Do for You?
Visiting a chiropractor for regular adjustments is a natural way to heal your pain. You can find relief from back pain, neck pain, pain in your muscles, bones, and joints, and more.
This type of therapy is used not just for everyday pain, but it also can help you recover faster from sports injuries and car accidents. It is a much-used replacement for surgery when it comes to herniated discs.
Over the years, there have been many studies done that show the benefits of going to a chiropractor. Some of them show the visible signs of the effectiveness of these treatments, while others have tested and found that it's an excellent alternative choice to surgery for many ailments.
What to Expect from a Visit to a Chiropractor
Most chiropractors don't do adjustments on your first visit unless it's an emergency. If you hurt your back lifting something, or you're experiencing extreme pain from a herniated disc or sciatica, it's likely he'll work in an adjustment once he's gone over all the preliminaries.
Typically, he will go over your medical and pain history. He wants to learn why you've come to visit.
You will then get some X-rays done. This lets your chiropractor see what your spine looks like so that he can determine what areas need work. There are other tools he might use as well, which you'll learn about on your first visit.
Future visits will be in-and-out adjustments. You can go over new pains or let your practitioner know when a pain has been eradicated.
