Chiropractic Care

What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care is a healthcare profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractors use hands-on spinal manipulation and other alternative treatments that may alleviate pain, improve function, and support the body’s natural ability to heal itself. 

The primary treatment method is spinal manipulation, also called spinal adjustment, which involves applying controlled force to the spinal joints to improve the range and quality of motion in the spine.

What Conditions Can a Chiropractor Treat?

Chiropractors may treat a wide range of conditions, including but not limited to:

  • Low back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Joint pain (e.g., knee, hip, shoulder)
  • Sciatica
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Scoliosis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sports injuries
  • Work-related injuries
  • Auto accident injuries

What Are the Benefits of Chiropractic Services?

Chiropractic treatment may offer numerous potential benefits for patients seeking relief from pain and improved overall health:

  • Pain Relief: Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to effectively reduce pain in the back, neck, joints, and head.
  • Improved Posture: Regular chiropractic care can help correct poor posture by realigning the spine and reducing muscle strain.
  • Reduced Inflammation: Spinal manipulation may help reduce inflammation, decrease pain, and improve overall health.
  • Enhanced Athletic Performance: Chiropractic treatment can improve joint mobility, reduce pain, and decrease tissue restriction, aiding athletic performance.
  • Reduced Reliance on Pain Medication: By addressing the underlying causes of pain, chiropractic care may reduce the need for opioid pain relievers in people with chronic pain.
  • Cost-Effective Treatment: Chiropractic care may be a more affordable alternative to conventional treatments for chronic back pain, with lower overall treatment costs and shorter treatment durations.

What Are the Potential Risks of Chiropractic Care?

While chiropractic care is generally considered safe when performed by a trained and licensed practitioner, there are some potential risks to be aware of:

  • Temporary soreness or discomfort following a spinal adjustment
  • Rare instances of stroke or nerve compression following neck manipulation
  • Increased risk of complications for those with certain pre-existing medical conditions, such as osteoporosis or spinal instability

It is essential to consult with a qualified healthcare provider, such as a primary care physician, before beginning chiropractic treatment to ensure it is safe and appropriate for your individual needs.

The RxWellness Chiropractic Care Patient Experience

When you choose RxWellness for your chiropractic care needs, you can expect a patient-centered experience focused on your overall well-being. Our approach involves four distinct phases of treatment, each designed to address your specific needs and goals.

Phase One: Initial Consultation and Examination

Your journey begins with a comprehensive consultation, where our skilled chiropractors take the time to understand your medical history, current symptoms, and health goals. We then conduct a thorough physical examination, which may include neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical tests and digital X-rays if necessary. This approach helps us develop the most effective treatment plan and identify underlying spinal conditions.

Phase Two: Relief Care

The first phase of treatment, known as Relief Care, focuses on reducing pain and symptoms. During this phase, you may require frequent visits, sometimes daily or 2-3 times weekly. While the underlying condition may still exist, our primary goal is to provide relief and improve comfort.

Phase Three: Corrective Care

Once your pain and symptoms have been addressed, we move on to the second phase of treatment, Corrective Care. This phase aims to address the root cause of your condition, helping to prevent a recurrence of symptoms. During Corrective Care, the frequency of your visits will be reduced, and you may begin performing exercises and stretches at home to accelerate your healing.

Phase Four: Maintenance Care

The final phase of treatment, Maintenance Care, is designed to help you sustain the benefits achieved during the first two phases. Just as regular exercise and a healthy diet are essential for maintaining overall health, ongoing chiropractic care can help ensure the health of your musculoskeletal system. 

Maintenance Care visits are typically less frequent and focus on preventing future problems, allowing you to enjoy the activities you love without pain or discomfort.

Our team will provide ongoing support and guidance throughout your treatment, ensuring that you feel comfortable and informed every step of the way. Our doctors of chiropractic care can also recommend lifestyle modifications, such as exercise and nutritional advice, to complement your in-office care and promote long-term wellness.
