Chiropractic Care Q & A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care helps your body heal itself naturally. This approach to health care stems from the belief that your body is a self-healing system controlled by your brain, nerves, and spinal cord. When individual backbones (vertebrae) shift out of place, they can put pressure on your spinal nerves, blood vessels, and muscles. This, in turn, can affect your entire body.

Subluxation describes a vertebra that moves out of place. The chiropractors at Northview Medical specialize in correcting subluxation and treating spinal misalignment. They carefully restore your vertebrae to their proper positions to relieve your pain and symptoms.

What problems does a chiropractor treat?

Chiropractic care is a natural healing technique that relieves pain and symptoms of many conditions. The chiropractors at Northview Medical treat a broad range of conditions, including:

  • Headaches
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain

What should I expect from my chiropractic appointment?

First, your chiropractor at Northview Medical spends time discussing your symptoms and medical history with you. They perform a comprehensive physical evaluation and may take tests, such as an X-ray.

Then, they develop an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific condition. The team at Northview Medical is trained in many of the leading chiropractic techniques, including:

  • The Activator Method®
  • Spinal decompression
  • Diversified technique
  • Gonstead technique
  • Palmer technique
  • Pettibon technique
  • Thompson technique

Depending on your needs, your chiropractor may apply hands-on treatment or they may use instruments, such as the Activator tool. They may also teach you exercises to perform in between treatments and counsel you on topics like proper nutrition and supplements.

The number of chiropractic treatments you need depends on the nature and severity of your condition. Most people find relief within several weeks.

If you suffer from back pain, neck pain, or another condition, chiropractic care may relieve your pain and symptoms without medication. To find out if chiropractic is right for you, call Northview Medical and book an appointment today.
