Chiropractic Care Q&A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care involves adjustments and manipulations of your spine to return it to a natural state of health.

When you have subluxation in your spine, it means there’s a dislocation or misalignment in the vertebrae. Even a slight misalignment can cause chronic pain, muscle spasms, and a loss of the range of motion you have in your spine. Subluxation can also lead to persistent nerve irritation and painful joint impingement.

Atlas Health Center specializes in chiropractic care services that they customize to your needs. They can use chiropractic techniques to keep your spine in proper alignment and enhance your overall health and wellness.

When should I consider chiropractic care?

You should consider chiropractic care if you have musculoskeletal issues that cause persistent neck pain, back pain, hip pain, or pain in any of your joints. This pain may stem from degenerative diseases, auto injuries, falls, or other types of traumas.

Other conditions the team at Atlas Health Center can treatment with chiropractic care include:

  • Sciatica
  • Whiplash
  • Headaches
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Herniated discs
  • Muscle sprains and strains
  • Degenerative disc disease

You should schedule a chiropractic appointment if any of these conditions are causing you pain that interferes with your quality of life or if you have limited mobility in your spine or joints.

The team offers comprehensive health evaluations to determine if you would benefit from chiropractic care. Because all bodies aren’t the same, they customize a treatment plan to your individual needs.

What is involved in chiropractic care?

During your chiropractic care appointment, the team at Atlas Health Center identifies misalignments in your spine and adjusts them through a series of manual spine adjustments. 

The team specializes in the Palmer technique to restore the alignment of your spine so that your body can heal itself. They use a gentle force to move your vertebrae into the proper position to relieve pressure on the surrounding nerves and muscles.

Once your vertebrae are in alignment, blood can flow more efficiently through your body, boosting the function of your blood vessels, nerves, and lymphatic system. You may feel an immediate difference in your level of pain during your treatment. Often, the results of your chiropractic treatment will continue to improve in the days after your treatment.

You can schedule routine chiropractic appointments to prevent pain and keep your body healthy, even after your pain goes away. The team might also recommend other therapies, such as massage therapy, acupuncture, or physical therapy, that complement chiropractic care to keep you healthy and pain-free.
