Chiropractic Care Q & A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic refers to an integrative system of therapy focused on your body’s structure and alignment, especially that of the spine. The highly trained chiropractors at Apex Integrated Medical Center adjust the alignment of your body to relieve pain, restore function, and promote healing.

The backbone of chiropractic care is spinal manipulation through hands-on adjustments. Depending on your specific needs, your chiropractor may employ a variety of other treatments, including:

  • Heat and ice
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Rehabilitation exercises
  • Dietary supplements

As a holistic health professional, your chiropractor may also counsel you on lifestyle factors, like weight loss and nutrition. The team at Apex Integrated Medical Center considers your unique physical, emotional, and social needs before developing a personalized treatment plan.

What conditions may benefit from chiropractic care?

The team at Apex Integrated Medical Center uses chiropractic to treat a wide variety of conditions that cause pain and restricted mobility. The most common reasons people seek chiropractic care include:

  • Headaches
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain

Chronic pain in any form can be debilitating. Chiropractic care can help you find relief without using medications or invasive procedures.

What should I expect from my chiropractic treatment?

First, your provider at Apex Integrated Medical Center thoroughly reviews your symptoms and medical history. They perform a physical exam, which may involve observing your posture and taking tests, like an X-ray.

After they understand the underlying cause of your pain, your chiropractor creates an individualized treatment plan. In addition to chiropractic care, treatment may include:

  • Regenerative medicine
  • IV nutritional therapy
  • Physical therapy

During your chiropractic treatment, your provider places you in different positions to achieve the best results. This may include lying face-down, on your back, or on one side while they use their hands to apply controlled pressure to your body. They may also use instruments or medical devices, like a therapeutic laser, to treat a certain area.

Chiropractic treatments typically involve a series of visits over the course of several weeks or months. The number and frequency of visits that you require depend on the type and severity of your condition. Most people experience optimal improvement after 6-10 chiropractic visits.
