What is chiropractic care?

Unlike most traditional fields of medicine, chiropractic care doesn’t limit treatment to the one area of your body that’s injured or causing you pain. Instead, chiropractors examine how the structure of your joints and spine affect your ability to function and how that structure might contribute to pain and other symptoms. 

When any one area of your body is out of balance, your entire body is out of alignment. By addressing these dysfunctions, chiropractors work to ease tension and swelling that affects your nerves and then restore your structures to their rightful place and improve your alignment and range of motion. 

How does chiropractic care help with injuries?

Chiropractic care focuses on your spine and joints, and their connection to your nervous system, and it addresses the root cause of your pain without surgery or invasive treatments by addressing any subluxations (spinal dislocations or misalignments). 

By addressing these issues, chiropractic care reduces inflammation, scar tissue, and pain while restoring your range of motion and reducing your dependency on pain medications. Dr. Oyharcabal may use the following treatments to help you overcome your injuries:

Our treatment methods at Atlas Health Center provide safe, low-risk options for our patients who are struggling to overcome injuries of many types.

If your injuries are severe enough to require surgery, chiropractic care with Dr. Oyharcabal helps you regain your strength, flexibility, and mobility as you recover.
