Chiropractic Care For Natural Healing & Pain Relief
Chiropractic therapy is an effective, non-invasive, and drug-free treatment that complements the body’s natural healing mechanisms. Our experienced chiropractic physicians regularly treat patients of all ages who have sustained pain and injury from auto accidents, sports, strenuous or repetitive workplace activity, and everyday physical exertion.
The spine is easily one of our most neglected body parts, until it is injured and starts causing unbearable pain. Chiropractic care focuses mainly on spine and nerve health, which can affect the health and function of the rest of the body (an unavoidable fact because of the spine’s position as the foundation of the body). Under conventional medical methods, the only treatments available are surgery and/or potentially addictive drugs, which often prove ineffective in relieving the pain or healing the injury. In contrast, chiropractic doctors respect the spine and nerve system’s complexity, which is why chiropractic medical treatment often succeeds where conventional medical treatment fails.
The Benefits Of Chiropractic Adjustments
As practitioners of natural medical therapy, we do not use invasive methods to treat our patients. Instead, patients undergo chiropractic adjustments, which corrects the spinal misalignment (usually caused by accidents at work, home, or on the road, or overexertion during physical activity in general). A misaligned spine can cause a cascade of health issues, which can include but are not limited to: pinched or compressed nerves, slipped or compressed discs, neck pain, back pain, joint pain (hips and knees), leg pain, restricted range of motion, muscular tension and discomfort, and more.
Chiropractic adjustments are made when the chiropractor applies focused pressure on the spine to move out of place vertebrae into the correct natural position, and to loosen joints that have settled in dysfunctional positions. When the spine is aligned properly, damaged nerves can be easily accessed and treated, which often results in lasting relief. Chiropractic adjustments are effective in treating: bad posture, back/neck pain, joint (hip/knee) pain, leg pain, muscle pain, headache pain, chronic pain, and chronic numbness.
In addition, chiropractic adjustments are also extremely safe. No lengthy recovery time like surgery, no dangerous side effects from potentially addictive drugs, whether prescribed or over the counter. Adjustments are simple, non-invasive, and can be administered as often as your active lifestyle demands it. It’s also proven safe for children and teenagers–if they lead an active lifestyle and participate in after school sports, they could benefit greatly from regular chiropractic adjustments, which are an effective way to treat and prevent injuries without the risk of surgery and drugs.
What To Expect On Your First Visit
Initial consultations may be performed by the case manager or chiropractor, which will then lead to a physical, orthopedic, and neurological exam, as well as a postural and spinal analysis. Your previous medical records and history will be taken into account in addition to your current symptoms, which may require additional laboratory tests. Once the diagnosis is determined, treatment options will be discussed–and once you decide your best option we can proceed with the treatment and determine an appointment schedule for follow up therapy.
New and prospective patients are often hesitant and intimidated, due to common misconceptions of chiropractic care:
- Time: Compared to surgery, recuperation time is much faster. Depending on the injury sustained, patients usually start to feel relief during therapy and can usually go back to their daily routine at the end of the appointment. No downtime for weeks at a time necessary.
- Cost: The cost is generally less than conventional medical care, and treatment should be covered under most insurance plans. Our patient concierge will verify coverage to ensure patient convenience and peace of mind–and if insurance isn’t available, a fair and affordable payment plan can be arranged.
- Commitment: This depends solely on the patient–there are no sales pitches, there is no pressure. Every patient is different, with varying needs and severity of symptoms. Some patients have minor issues that are resolved within the 1st or 2nd appointment, some patients may need a longer commitment due to the severity of their condition. Above all, the important thing to remember is that we prioritize true healing above all else–you will never be pressured into unnecessary treatments if you’re already completely healed and healthy.
- Location: Because of our diverse team of health and medical experts, patients can get all the necessary treatments they need in one facility. At Fox Integrated Healthcare, you won’t have to commute back and forth between different clinics just for additional complementary care.
