Chiropractic Q & A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic is a medical profession that focuses on the joints, particularly those in the spine, and their role in nervous system function. With chiropractic care, trained doctors of chiropractic (DCs) use hands-on techniques to manipulate the spine and restore optimal joint and nervous system health.

Unique among medical care providers, chiropractors never prescribe or administer any kind of medication, nor do they perform any type of surgical procedures. Chiropractic care is 100% natural, primarily focusing on helping your body heal on its own.

The principal service chiropractors offer is spine and joint adjustments, but they also provide 

soft tissue manipulation, nutritional counseling, physical fitness coaching, and lifestyle advice.

When might I need chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care can help with virtually any type of acute or chronic pain, including: 

  • Neck and back pain
  • Shoulder and elbow pain
  • Hip and knee pain
  • Herniated disk
  • Sciatica pain
  • Hand and wrist pain
  • Foot and ankle pain

When patients come to Medicus Spine & Joint, the first-line treatment plan is usually conservative natural therapies like chiropractic, physical therapy, and alternative therapies like acupuncture. 

While the practice offers interventional pain management and minimally invasive surgery, the providers aim to help patients heal and overcome pain using the most natural and conservative means possible. That’s why they take the integrative and holistic approach, which includes chiropractic care, in the office.

What can I expect from chiropractic care?

During chiropractic adjustments, your chiropractor uses a safe amount of measured force to manipulate your spine or a specific painful joint. 

These adjustments restore balance and allow your nervous system to return to healthy function, which ultimately eases pain and improves your physical function. 

Adjustments aren’t painful, but you may feel some pressure. Many patients have an almost-instant lessening of joint pain and stiffness after their adjustments.

How effective is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care has shown remarkable results in people with various pain-causing conditions. 95% of people who had chiropractic care in the last year say it’s an effective treatment, and about 90% recommend this type of care to their loved ones.

If you’re struggling with pain following an accident or have chronic pain, chiropractic care could be the treatment that gets you back to doing what you love as soon as possible. Book your appointment by calling the nearest office or clicking the online scheduler now.
