Chiropractors are licensed doctors who diagnose and treat musculoskeletal and nervous system disorders. Our chiropractor is trained in a variety of all-natural pain relief techniques, including applied pressure, massage, and chiropractic adjustments of the vertebrae and joints.
Experienced in dozens of ways to treat pain, our chiropractors are the leader in this field of care in North Carolina. At our chiropractic center, we take a whole-body approach to treatment and often recommend a comprehensive treatment plan of adjustments, rehabilitative exercises, and nutritional and lifestyle counseling to help your body heal.
One principle of chiropractic care is that given the right conditions, your body can heal itself. Our job is to create the right environment to facilitate natural healing. Chiropractors believe that most back and neck pain occurs when your one or more of your spinal vertebrae are misaligned.
Treating such misalignments may also alleviate pain associated with a myriad of conditions in addition to back pain and neck pain, including:
- Headaches, including migraines
- Leg pain
- Knee pain
- Elbow pain
- Shoulder pain
- Trauma, such as whiplash and car accident injuries
- Strains and sprains
- Sports injuries
- Workplace injuries
- And more
What Does a Chiropractor Do?
On your initial visit, we’ll conduct an initial assessment. You may be asked to share information about your family health history and medical history, such as past injuries, surgeries, and current medications. You’ll also be given a physical assessment, where you will be asked to perform a few movements to evaluate your posture and range of motion. The evaluation might include reflexes and other orthopedic and neurologic tests. Depending on your situation, we may also order X-rays to get to the bottom of the issue.
Once we identify the problem, we’ll recommend a course of action. As part of your comprehensive treatment plan, our chiropractors might suggest specific spinal adjustments or manipulations to treat, stretch, and strengthen the affected area.
We may also suggest certain types of exercises and diet and lifestyle improvements that will help you continue living a healthy life after you leave our medical clinic. Examples of changes are quitting smoking, modifying certain activities, or increasing the consumption of particular foods, in order to address the root of your condition.
Chiropractic adjustments are non-invasive, and our doctor uses this type of care to treat and prevent conditions and disorders concerning the back, neck, pelvis, and joints. This technique places precise pressure on a specific part of the spine to relieve pain and discomfort and restore range of motion.
Our Chiropractors use other therapies like spinal decompression and laser therapy massage to restore proper function of the nervous system as well. Our therapies help your body reboot and take advantage of its natural healing abilities, so you don’t have to resort to drugs or surgery. Since chiropractic care is both non-surgical and non-invasive, the risks of serious side effects are extremely low.
By treating the musculoskeletal elements of most chronic disorders, chiropractic treatment has been shown to improve your overall well-being. Whether you are searching for options back or neck pain relief, or you’re experiencing a chronic health condition, it's critical to learn more about your care options. We want to help you live a pain-free life again.
