Chiropractic care, based on the connection between your nervous system and overall health, is a non-invasive, hands-on therapy that primarily focuses on your neuromusculoskeletal system. If you experience any type of discomfort in your spine, pelvis, nervous system, or joints, our chiropractors provide effective manual techniques for pain management.
Doctors of Chiropractic use a combination of non-invasive, hands-on treatments to treat medical disorders of the spine, joints, muscles, or nervous system for all-natural pain reduction.
What to Expect on Your First Visit To A Chiropractor?
Your nervous system runs through your spine, so any issues or disorders involving your spine may affect the nerves leaving that region to other parts of the body. Chiropractic treatments focus on reducing musculoskeletal pain by decreasing inflammation and the intensity of muscle spasms.
On your initial visit, you will most likely be given an assessment which includes a physical evaluation. This physical assessment may require that you perform specific movements to determine your posture and range of motion.
Our doctor may test your reflexes and conduct other tests as part of your examination. You may also be asked to share information about your family history, medical history, such as past injuries and surgeries, and current medication.
After a complete diagnosis, our chiropractor will then recommend a combination of treatments customized to your specific needs. This pain management plan may also include therapeutic exercises and other non-invasive therapies.
How Does Chiropractic Care Work?
Manual adjustments improve joint mobility, function, and health by loosening tight muscles and improving flexibility and strength. Spinal manipulations may also decrease the degeneration of joints and connective tissues.
Chiropractic services involve more than manual adjustments of your joints. A comprehensive treatment plan often combines movements, exercises, massage therapy, and other treatments to restore your optimal health. Corrective exercise is an important aspect of chiropractic treatment. We design targeted exercise programs to alleviate pain.
The following chronic pain conditions caused by injuries or disease may be eliminated with manual therapy:
- Back and neck pain
- Sprains and strains
- Any problem affecting your musculoskeletal system
- Joint pain in the knees, elbows, shoulders, and hips
- Pinched nerves
- Sports injuries
- Improper posture
- Limited range of motion
- Headaches and migraines
- General health and well-being
At our Dallas, Texas, Chiropractic clinic, we also provide counseling on diet, nutrition, exercise, healthy habits, and occupational and lifestyle modification. Our services help to restore and improve your ability to enjoy daily work and recreational activities. Chiropractic services are often equally effective and a more cost-effective option than invasive procedures and long-term use of prescription medication.
