What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic is a natural care method that involves gentle readjustments throughout the body to treat those who are suffering from pain or movement issues. Chiropractic care can also help speed up our body’s recovery process by breaking up scar tissue, improving blood flow to the affected area, and decreasing inflammation. Chiropractors need to go through years of school, training, and certifications to be able to perform treatment. Through this extensive training, they are able to determine areas in your musculoskeletal system that are misaligned. Chiropractic is a great option for someone seeking a non-invasive, drug-free approach to injuries or pain.

Should You See a Chiropractor?

When many people think of a chiropractor, they tend to think that they only address the back and neck. However, chiropractic care can address multiple areas of the body and can help with a broad spectrum of health conditions. Seeing a chiropractor can help with a wide variety of muscle, joint, back, and neck issues. Our team can perform chiropractic adjustments to work to heal pain, injuries, and conditions such as;

  • Sports injuries
  • Pinched Nerves
  • Arthritis
  • Neck Pain
  • Migraines or frequent Headaches
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Sciatica
  • Scoliosis
  • Injuries from accidents (car accidents, falling, etc.)
  • General back and joint paint

This is just a short list of areas and conditions that chiropractic treatment can help with. Contact our office today and we would be happy to discuss if chiropractic is right for you.

Massage Therapy vs Chiropractic: Which is the Better Option for You?

Massage Therapy and Chiropractic treatments can both help ease muscle tension, improve range of motion, and help aid you in the recovery process if you become injured. However, one may provide better results than the other when it comes to resolving these issues.

Receiving chiropractic care will be the most beneficial for issues that affect your spine, joints, and your overall musculoskeletal system which includes ligaments, muscles, bones, etc. If you are experiencing a limited range of motion it is likely due to an issue with your bones and joints. Having a chiropractic adjustment would be the most beneficial treatment for those issues.

Massage therapy would be a better option if you are having muscle pain or aches in your body. Massage therapy works by manipulating the body’s soft tissue. This soft tissue work will help your muscle relax and help relieve the pain you’re feeling. Massage therapists can perform multiple types of treatments such as deep tissue which is best for treating pain, or you can opt for a more gentle style to promote overall muscle relaxation.
