Our Chiropractic Treatments

Chiropractic treatments we use include:

  • Ice or heat therapy: Ice reduces pain and swelling. Heat can calm muscles and promote healing by increasing blood flow.

  • Massage: Massage relaxes muscles and reduces pain.

  • Chiropractic adjustment (spinal stimulation): During an adjustment, you’ll lie down on a table. Your chiropractor will quickly move your joints beyond their normal range of motion. This treatment improves the movement of your joints and may reduce pain.

  • Electrical muscle stimulation: This treatment stimulates your muscles and encourages blood flow. It can reduce muscle spasms and relieve back pain.

  • TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation): This treatment uses a mild electrical current delivered via electrodes placed on the skin. The current stimulates the nerves and can help reduce swelling and increase circulation.

 

Your Chiropractic Visit: What to Expect

Chiropractic care may be your primary pain treatment. But you may also need to see other providers, such as physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists or physical therapists. 

At your appointment:

  • Your chiropractor will conduct an extensive exam to determine what treatments will work best for you.

  • You will get a treatment plan specific to your individual needs. 

  • Your plan will include ways you can continue healing at home, including exercises and stretches and nutrition and lifestyle changes.
