Chiropractic Care Q & A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care is a type of care for the musculoskeletal system that treats pain in the joints, back, head, and neck. Also called spinal manipulation, chiropractic adjustments involve moving or manipulating the spine to restore balance and relieve pressure on compressed nerves. 

Nerve compression can cause referred pain, which is misleading. While the pain appears in one area of the body, it stems from nerve compression in another. Your provider at Joint Effort Chiropractic evaluates you and asks about your lifestyle to find the origin of your pain. 

Once they understand what’s behind your pain and other symptoms, like numbness or weakness, they can set up your chiropractic adjustments and create a personalized care plan with multiple treatment strategies. 

What can chiropractic care treat?

The team at Joint Effort Chiropractic specializes in using chiropractic adjustments and other treatment approaches to address many conditions and injury types. Neck and back problems often cause pain in other parts of the body depending on the nerves affected. 

You might benefit from chiropractic care if you experience:

  • Headaches 
  • Migraines
  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain 
  • Neck pain
  • Low back pain
  • Knee pain
  • Hip pain
  • Sciatica
  • Herniated or bulging disc
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Shoulder pain
  • Pinched nerves
  • Plantar fasciitis

Often, chiropractic care is a great alternative for when other treatment approaches haven’t offered an acceptable level of improvement. You may be able to decrease or eliminate the need for pharmaceutical medications by undergoing chiropractic care. 

What are common chiropractic techniques?

Joint Effort Chiropractic specializes in evidence-based chiropractic techniques as well as other treatments that can supplement your care. After your initial visit and evaluation, your provider selects one or more approaches to help remove pressure from various nerves. 

Your care plan might include specific techniques like:

Non-surgical spinal decompression

Non-surgical spinal decompression is a computer-controlled procedure that elongates the spine to release pressure from compressed nerves. It’s especially effective in treating herniated discs and degenerative disc disease. 

Active Release Techniques®(ART®) and Graston Technique® 

Active Release Technique® is a treatment for soft tissue pain. During the procedure, your provider uses stainless steel tools to smooth tense muscle fibers and tease out any scar tissue adhesions. Graston Technique® works in a similar way to treat overuse injuries.

A chiropractic care plan may also involve custom shoe orthotics, nutritional counseling, ultrasound therapy, or matrix therapy.
