Chiropractic Care Q&A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care is a branch of medicine focused on diagnosing, treating, and preventing neuro-musculoskeletal disorders. It uses manual therapies and adjustment techniques to relieve common problems, including:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Joint pain
  • Headaches
  • Sports injuries
  • Work injuries

Chiropractic care can also relieve aches and pains caused by pregnancy, as well as auto accident injuries.

How does chiropractic care work?

Chiropractic care uses therapeutic, hands-on procedures to encourage circulation, limit inflammation, and improve mobility. One of the most common techniques that chiropractors use is spinal manipulation.

By applying light pressure to the joints and soft tissues throughout your body, the team at HealthySpine NY Chiropractic can alleviate pain and muscle tightness while encouraging your body’s natural healing process. Spinal manipulation is quick and pain-free. The team has years of training and experience to ensure your safety and comfort.

Besides spinal manipulation, chiropractic services include Kinesio taping and soft tissue therapy, such as massage, pre- and postnatal care, posture correction, and more.

What happens during a chiropractic care appointment?

A chiropractic care appointment begins with a review of your medical history and a discussion of your symptoms. Your provider also has you rate your pain on a scale of 1-10 and asks questions, including how often you exercise, the types of food you eat, and the reason for your visit.

After gathering this information, your HealthySpine NY Chiropractic provider conducts a physical exam, then has you perform a series of strength and range-of-motion exercises. This process helps pinpoint the source of your pain and its severity. Your provider might also recommend diagnostic imaging, such as X-rays or an MRI.

Following the exam, your provider develops a custom care plan that aligns with your needs. Usually, this includes a combination of treatments, including chiropractic adjustments, exercise modifications, and healthy lifestyle changes.

Who can benefit from chiropractic care?

Anyone who regularly experiences musculoskeletal pain can benefit from chiropractic care. If you’ve tried conservative measures such as ice, rest, or over-the-counter medication, but your symptoms persist, consider chiropractic care. 

Chiropractic care is non-invasive. There’s no need for stitches, sutures, or lengthy recovery times. It’s also chemical-free, meaning there’s no risk of addiction or adverse side-effects.  

Even if you’re relatively healthy, chiropractic care can help you stay that way. The more you know about your musculoskeletal system, the easier it is to take good care of it. If you’re physically active, chiropractic care can even lower your risk of injury and improve your performance on the court or playing field.
