When to See a Chiropractor
GHC-SCW has an excellent team of chiropractors who treat a variety of painful conditions. You might use chiropractic care if you have back or neck pain, get headaches or even if you have pain in your arms or legs. Chiropractic care treats pain caused by problems with your spine, joints or the muscles and tissues around your joints.
Chiropractic treatment assists in improving joint mobility, while reducing inflammation and pain. Some approaches use force (spinal manipulation), while others are more gentle (spinal mobilization).
Why Chiropractic Treatments Work
What to Expect at a Chiropractor Appointment
Spinal adjustments or manipulations may feel like a gentle massage or a quick thrust. Both of these methods increase movement in your joints and relax your muscles. You might feel sore after your chiropractic adjustments.
Types of Chiropractic Treatments We Provide
This technique involves slow and steady movement of the spinal joints through their range of motion. This is a gentle approach that does not involve audible popping or cracking sounds.
This is the most frequently used chiropractic technique. Spinal manipulation is the traditional thrust that many people associate with chiropractic care. The manipulation often results in an audible “pop,” as chiropractors use their hands to apply a controlled sudden force to a joint while the body is positioned in a specific way.
Patient-specific exercises and stretches. Studies support the use of spinal manipulation with exercise to produce the best outcomes.
Chiropractic providers will give you instruction to correct the way you bend, lift, pull and push.
We’ll give you tips on sitting or standing posture along with exercises that may help with improved posture.
