Chiropractic Care Information:

Chiropractic medicine is an alternative form of medicine which focuses on disorders in the musculoskeletal system, particularly the spine, with the hypothesis that these disorders affect health by means of the nervous system.

Chiropractors use techniques which involve manual therapy (which includes the manipulations of the spine, joints and tissues), exercise, and health and lifestyle counseling. Conditions relating to chiropractic medicine that are treated by chiropractors include lower back pain, neck pain, headache, and other pain conditions.

Chiropractor Frequently Asked Questions


What Conditions does a Chiropractor Treat?

Chiropractors are experts trained in the neuromusculoskeletal system that diagnose and treat disorders of the spine and other body joints. The vast majority of conditions treated relate to back, neck and head pain. A chiropractor may treat allergies, asthma, back aches and pain, carpal tunnel, elbow pain, fibromyalgia, headaches, hip pain, joint pain and problems, knee pain, lower back pain, muscle tightness and stiffness, neck pain, sciatica, shoulder pain, sports injuries, stress, and TMJ.

What Procedures do Chiropractors Perform?

The most common procedure performed by a chiropractor is known as "spinal manipulation," or "chiropractic adjustment." Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected areas restores motion, alleviates pain and muscle tightness, and allows tissues to heal.

Chiropractors use their hands for most treatments and also use other methods such as heat, light, specialized adjusting instruments, ultrasound, electrotherapy, personalized exercise programs, muscle-testing and balancing. Your chiropractor can also give you information and guidance on how you can stay healthy through proper nutrition, exercise and lifestyle changes.

When Should I See a Chiropractor?

Some patients seek treatment from a chiropractor for wellness care, some to maintain mobility, some for pain relief, and others to maintain joint function and a healthy spine. You may be a good candidate for a visit to the chiropractor if you suffer from chronic joint or muscle pain that doesn't go away with medication, if you've suffered an injury which you're still feeling pain from, if you feel worse after a hard workout or sports activity, if your current job requires you to spend hours sitting, or if you're looking for a non-intrusive, non-surgical solution to muscle and joint pain.

Will Insurance Cover a Chiropractor Visit?

Yes, chiropractic treatments are included in most health insurance plans. Contact your insurance provider to confirm availability with your specific plan as all coverage is different.

What Should I Consider When Choosing a Chiropractor?

When selecting a local chiropractor, here are a few questions to ask:

  • Does your office accept my insurance?
  • Are you licensed?
  • If I notice a problem, how quickly can I get an appointment?
  • Do you offer evening or weekend hours?
  • How many years have you been practicing chiropractic care?
  • How many times a week or month must I come for care or readjustment?
  • Will I be seeing you or an assistant when I visit?
  • Do you have patient references available?
