General Chiropractic

You’re probably familiar with physical therapists and what services they generally perform for their patients, but what about general chiropractors? Chiropractors are health care professionals who center their care on the neuromusculoskeletal system. This includes the body’s nerves, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and bones. Research suggests that nearly 35 million people in the U.S. visit chiropractors each year. Chiropractors can see patients of all ages — even babies! They most often treat patients who are experiencing neck or back pain and bring their patients back into a healthy bodily alignment. 

Who Can Benefit From General Chiropractic Care?

General chiropractors can treat patients with a variety of conditions. Here are some common ones:

  • Back pain.
  • Neck pain.
  • Shoulder pain.
  • Strains and sprains.
  • Joint pain and inflammation.
  • Traumatic injuries.
  • Overuse injuries.
  • Headaches and migraines.
  • Limited mobility in the back, neck and shoulders.

What to Expect From General Chiropractic Treatment

You can expect a few things when you attend regular sessions with a general chiropractic practitioner. The first is that your chiropractor will discuss with you your medical history and other related conditions you may have, as well as the medications you’re currently taking. Then they’ll perform a visual examination to determine if you have any physically noticeable abnormalities that need to be corrected. They’ll most likely feel your spine and neck to determine any abnormalities they can detect underneath your skin, and from there, they’ll come up with a unique treatment plan. This treatment plan will be carried out over several sessions for the best results. During each session, they’ll adjust your spine, neck and any other limbs they deem necessary. After completing your treatment sessions, they usually recommend that you return for regular maintenance sessions.

Can General Chiropractic Treatment Be Used With Other Treatment Methods?

Yes, general chiropractic treatment can be used in conjunction with other therapies. Many treatments become more effective for patients when combined with other services, like physical therapy. Using multiple services can target different body areas to create a wide-reaching treatment effect. For example, chiropractic care and physical therapy can be combined to produce more significant benefits for a patient. You can reference some of the services we provide at REPAIR SI, listed below.
