Some people have heard of the chiropractor, but do not know what types of chiropractic services are offered. Chiropractic services and techniques go far beyond the “adjusting” that is spoken of often. Chiropractors can help your body and health in many ways. Below are just a few of the services we provide.
Adjustments: Like mentioned above, adjustments are a common service that chiropractors offer. Chiropractors are trained to manipulate and adjust areas of your musculoskeletal system that affect your nervous system and health. Chiropractic services are referred to as an alternative form of medicine because we strive to diagnose, treat, and heal your body with limited medication and no unnatural treatments. Adjustments are the therapeutic movements we make to your skeletal system, commonly your spine.
Massage Treatment: In addition to making adjustments to your spine, we can also provide massage treatment. During this form of chiropractic service, we will massage the soft tissues in your body to improve circulation. Massage treatment can encourage healing, reduce inflammation, relieve discomfort, and spot target areas that are causing the most problems. Massage treatment can help you avoid taking potentially harmful or addictive medications like muscle relaxants that are often prescribed by doctors for muscle discomfort.
Exercise and Stretching: One of the other chiropractic services we provide is exercise or stretching techniques. We will provide you with instructions on certain exercises or stretches you can do at home or in office to alleviate pressure or discomfort in certain areas of your body. Most of the focus of exercise therapy is on your back and spine since this location affects your arms, legs, neck, and head. Exercise techniques can help strengthen your muscles and provide you with the extra support you may be lacking that could be causing some of your discomfort and bad posture. It will also promote good cardiovascular health.
Heat and Cold Therapy: Heat and cold therapy are provided as a discomfort alleviation chiropractic service. This therapy can help with inflammation that causes irritation and tenderness. It will also encourage the process of blood flow through your body, which we believe heals your body better than most medicines. Heat and cold therapy are often provided to help with lower back pain, muscle pulls or strains, joint pain, arthritis, and other injuries.
Depending on your needs, we will provide you with various forms of chiropractic services. If we believe you could benefit from visiting more than once, we may help you set up a treatment plan in which you will visit once every few weeks or every other week. Some adjustments take an extended period of time to obtain the best result. All of our treatments work better in conjunction with a healthy diet. We guarantee visiting our office will help you relax, relieve discomfort, and give you a quicker healing from an injury and more energy to use throughout the day. We do not offer any potentially harmful or unnatural remedies for your joint and muscle conditions. We only provide safe, effective chiropractic services that will heal your body.
