Chiropractor Q & A

How do chiropractors support my health and wellbeing?

Chiropractors receive extensive training in the diagnosis and treatment of problems affecting your musculoskeletal and nervous systems.

As holistic health care providers specializing in back, neck, joint, and muscle conditions, chiropractors determine the root cause of your symptoms and treat all the factors contributing to the problem.

Chiropractors focus on misaligned spinal vertebrae not just to relieve back and neck pain, but also because problems in the spine affect the nerves that serve your body.

In addition to alleviating pain, maintaining a healthy spine with chiropractic techniques boosts your immune system, reduces body-wide stress, restores optimal function, and supports your wellbeing.

What health conditions can a chiropractor treat?

Chiropractors treat most conditions that cause pain, including headaches and back, neck, and joint pain. Some of the conditions they frequently treat include:

  • Bulging discs
  • Migraines
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Sciatica
  • Bursitis
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Pinched nerves
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Neuropathy
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Overuse injuries
  • Scoliosis

Chiropractic care helps you recover from injuries, improve sports performance, and provides whole-body benefits such as stronger muscles, improved mobility, and increased energy.

What techniques do chiropractors use?

During your initial consultation at Goodlife Physical Medicine, your chiropractor reviews your medical history and symptoms, talks about your lifestyle habits, and performs a physical exam.

Your exam may include a postural and balance assessment. The team at Goodlife Physical Medicine may also take digital X-rays in the office or order other diagnostic imaging if needed.

After completing your diagnostic evaluation, your chiropractor creates an individualized treatment plan, drawing from their extensive training in many different chiropractic techniques, such as:

  • Chiropractic manipulation
  • Manual adjustments
  • Gonstead Technique
  • Activator Technique
  • Palmer Package Technique
  • Soft tissue and joint mobilization
  • Cervical and lumbar traction
  • Cox manual traction
  • PNF stretching
  • Muscle stretching techniques
  • Neuromuscular re-education
  • Myofascial release
  • Trigger point therapy

You don’t need to worry if some of the techniques aren’t familiar. Each one has a different focus and approach, so your chiropractor chooses the best treatment for your condition and thoroughly explains the therapies in your treatment plan. 

You may also receive nutritional counseling, physical therapy, and massage therapy as part of your chiropractic care.
