Chiropractic care is essential for good back health. It provides invaluable preventative care for patients seeking to maintain good health, and helps those who have been injured or affected by a condition recover more quickly and efficiently. Chiropractors can help address a long list of musculoskeletal concerns, from pain and soreness to limited mobility and range of motion.
What does a chiropractor do?
Chiropractors are specialists in the musculoskeletal system and can treat neck pain, back pain, arthritis, headaches, soft tissue injuries and much, much more. They are experts of the spine, muscle and nervous systems who can effectively evaluate, diagnose, treat and develop care plans to keep patients moving and pain-free. Those who receive regular chiropractic care report less pain intensity, experienced improvement in function and less disability, and reported higher satisfaction with their treatment. There are many benefits of chiropractic care, both with treating an injury or condition, and preventing them.
What problems can a chiropractor help with?
Chiropractors treat many conditions affecting the nervous system and musculoskeletal system and can help to restore function and mobility. Chiropractic care can help with a long list of medical concerns, from pain to deformities. Some problems they can help with include:
- Lower back pain
- Middle back pain
- Upper back pain
- Neck pain
- Joint deformities
- Muscle spasms
- Joint or muscle pain
- Damage or degeneration caused by prolonged sitting, especially when working at a desk
- Chronic back pain
- Uneven weight distribution, as seen when one shoe sole wears out significantly faster than the other
- Limited range of motion
- Limited mobility and ability to move
- Auto accident injuries
- Sharp, shooting or burning pain
- Sports injuries
Do chiropractors take walk-ins?
No, chiropractors do not typically accept walk-in appointments. If you would like to visit a chiropractor, it is important to book an appointment. Chiropractic care involves closely following a treatment plan, which will be developed during your first chiropractic visit.
Can you see a chiropractor without a referral?
Yes, you can see a chiropractor without a referral. This allows patients to receive preventative chiropractic care, allowing them to maintain a good quality of health and prevent a number of common injuries and medical conditions. This is also advantageous when experiencing muscle or joint pain, as patients do not need to consult a physician before receiving chiropractic treatment.
How often should you visit the chiropractor?
How often a patient should visit the chiropractor depends on a number of factors, including their unique condition, the condition’s severity and the level of pain or disability. For patients treating a mild or moderate injury, visits might be scheduled on a weekly or monthly basis. On the other hand, for patients addressing a more serious injury or disability, visits are typically scheduled more frequently, up to several visits per week. As the condition improves, the frequency of visits typically decreases. For preventative or maintenance care, patients typically visit the chiropractor once a month, or when tension and pain occur.
