Chiropractor Q & A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care is a field of medicine that focuses on musculoskeletal disorders and nervous system problems that affect pain, function, and mobility. Care may include preventive, diagnostic, or treatment-focused measures to support your best overall health, and may include:

  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Nonsurgical spinal decompression
  • Diagnostic imaging, including X-ray
  • Sports injury prevention, assessment, and care
  • Ergonomic assessments, including workspace assessment
  • Massage therapy
  • Physical therapy

The goals of chiropractic care are to prevent injury, relieve pain, and restore function and flexibility to the spine, and every part of the neurologic and musculoskeletal system.

What conditions can be treated with chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care is useful in preventing or treating a variety of musculoskeletal and nervous system problems, such as:

  • Herniated or bulging disc
  • Sciatica
  • Low back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Muscle spasms
  • Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs)
  • Sports injuries
  • Spinal misalignment, including subluxation
  • Chronic pain

With proper diagnosis and treatment, a multidisciplinary approach, and ongoing chiropractic support, these disorders can be effectively managed and your pain relieved for the long-term.

What is a chiropractic adjustment?

The chiropractic adjustment, also called spinal manipulation, is a key element of chiropractic treatment. At 5th Avenue Chiropractic, this treatment is performed by experienced, licensed professionals, who understand the complex connection between your spine, muscles, tissues, and nerves.

The purpose of this treatment is to restore flexibility and mobility of the spine, bones, and joints that have lost movement due to tissue injury. As a result of injury, tissues surrounding bones and nerves grow inflamed, irritated, and painful, and limit your movement.

Using expertly applied and controlled amounts of force, an experienced chiropractor realigns bones and joints and restores proper structure and mechanics. This allows for healing and restored function.

What are the benefits of chiropractic adjustments?

Chiropractic adjustments can benefit the musculoskeletal system by:

  • Restoring alignment of the musculoskeletal system
  • Restoring mobility and function
  • Releasing pressure on nerves
  • Improving nerve conduction
  • Restoring blood and lymphatic flow
  • Improving immune system response
  • Releasing muscle tension
  • Improving mobility and movement
  • Relieving pain

Chiropractic adjustments do not usually cause discomfort, but any mild soreness that may follow treatment resolves within 12-24 hours. Ongoing chiropractic support can help to relieve your pain, improve your mobility, and support your overall best health.
