Chiropractic adjustments offer a non-invasive, holistic approach to healthcare that focuses on the musculoskeletal system's impact on overall health. This type of treatment can help alleviate pain, reduce stress, and improve mobility by realigning the spine. If you're dealing with an acute injury or chronic condition, chiropractic adjustments can effectively improve your well-being. At Advanced Family Chiropractic and Rehabilitation in Imperial, Dr. Amato provides exceptional chiropractic care for chronic pain and back pain relief.
Understanding Chiropractic Adjustments
Chiropractic adjustments involve applying controlled force or pressure on specific areas of the spine, joints, or other parts of the body that are not functioning optimally. The goal is to restore mobility, alleviate pain and discomfort, and improve overall health by aligning the body's bones and joints. The adjustment process typically involves a series of short thrusts applied to specific points along the spine or other joints, creating a slight popping sound, which is simply gas being released from between joint spaces. This adjustment helps reduce nerve irritability, responsible for causing inflammation, muscle spasm, pain, and other symptoms affecting optimal function within your body.
Chiropractic adjustments are generally safe when performed by trained professionals like those at Advanced Family Chiropractic and Rehabilitation. However, patients with certain conditions such as osteoporosis or spinal cord compression may need alternative treatment options that do not involve spinal manipulation. If you're experiencing any sort of musculoskeletal pain or discomfort, it's always best to consult with one of our certified chiropractors who will provide you with an accurate diagnosis before recommending appropriate treatments for your condition.
First Visit Expectations
During your first chiropractic visit, a chiropractor from our team will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your medical history and current symptoms to determine the best treatment plan for you. We'll also ask you to describe your pain or discomfort, location, and any other symptoms you may have experienced. After assessing your medical history and current symptoms, the chiropractor will perform a physical examination to identify misalignments, muscle tension, or other issues needing attention.
We may take X-rays or refer you to an imaging center for further diagnostic testing if necessary. Once the evaluation is complete and all necessary information has been gathered, the chiropractor will create a customized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. This may include spinal adjustments, massage therapy, exercise recommendations, dietary changes, or supplement prescriptions. The initial visit aims to relieve patients' pain and discomfort while promoting overall health and wellness through natural methods.
