Chiropractic Care Q & A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care focuses on musculoskeletal and neurological disorders and their effects on your overall health. It involves comprehensive assessments and hands-on manipulation and adjustments to correct misalignment and physical imbalances in your body. 

Chiropractic care is pharmaceutical-free and noninvasive. Chiropractors take a holistic and natural approach to relieving pain and enhancing health. In addition to chiropractic adjustments, your provider might recommend nutritional changes, massage, exercises, and stretches.

What conditions improve with chiropractic care?

The team at Shift Wellness incorporate chiropractic care into treatment plans for a variety of conditions, including:

  • Back pain
  • Sciatica 
  • Neck pain
  • Joint pain
  • Headaches
  • Chronic pain conditions
  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain
  • Sports injuries

In addition to relieving pain, chiropractic care can correct your posture and reduce your risk of future discomfort. The goal of chiropractic care is to help you live a healthy, active, pain-free life.

What happens during a chiropractic evaluation?

At Shift Wellness, you begin with a thorough consultation. Your chiropractor reviews your medical history and asks about your symptoms. You also discuss your lifestyle, including diet and exercise habits.

Your chiropractor also completes a physical exam. They consider your posture and ask you to walk around the office and perform some movements and stretches. Your chiropractor also feels your spine, muscles, connective tissue, and joints.

What should I expect from chiropractic care?

Your chiropractor creates a personalized treatment plan to relieve your pain and address the underlying issues that contribute to your pain. 

Chiropractic adjustments place controlled force on specific vertebra and other joints. The adjustments correct misalignment and restore optimal body function. Chiropractic adjustments aren’t painful.

You might hear a popping or cracking sound during your adjustments. The sound comes from gas escaping from your joints and is nothing to worry about. 

Your chiropractor might also use soft tissue manipulation or assisted stretches to relieve muscle tension and pain that contributes to or results from alignment problems. 

While you might have nearly immediate relief from your pain, most patients have a series of chiropractic appointments to address the root cause of your pain. Your chiropractor might also give you stretches and exercises to practice at home.
