Q. What exactly does a chiropractor do?
A. A chiropractor is a doctor that specializes in treating issues stemming from the musculoskeletal system. A chiropractor works to diagnose the cause of your pain, then treat the cause. This, in turn, relieves your pain and gives you the tools you need to prevent it from coming back.
Q. How does my chiropractor determine what is causing my chronic pain?
A. Your chiropractor will work to determine the cause of your pain at your first appointment. To do this, they’ll do a physical examination of the area and surrounding area. Then, they will have you do some movements to see how the joints respond. In some cases, and not very often, they may have you do an x-ray so they can better look at your bones and joints. Your chiropractor will also take time to talk to you about the history of your pain and ask some additional questions.
Q. How will they treat my chronic pain?
A. Your chiropractor has many options when it comes to treating your pain. Most people associate spinal adjustments and manipulations with chiropractic care, but that’s not the only treatment option chiropractic use. Your chiropractic will create a treatment plan that is customized to you. Potential treatment options include stretching, massage, ice, heat, decompression, electrical stimulation, and more.
Q. How many treatments will I need?
A. Unfortunately, you probably won’t be cured in just one visit. Though you may experience relief in your first treatment, you will probably need to make multiple visits to your chiropractor to see full results. Your chiropractor will discuss your treatment length with you when they create your treatment plan.
Q. Can kids visit a chiropractor?
A. Yes. Your chiropractor can help people of all ages. Young athletes to older adults and everyone in between. If you have questions about bringing your child to a chiropractor, be sure to contact them.
