Chiropractic Adjustments from Your Chiropractor in Sarasota, FL
Approximately 22 million U.S. residents choose chiropractic care each year to relieve pain. More than one out of three people suffer from back pain. Others search for relief from issues such as headaches, neck pain, and discomfort in their arms or legs. Fortunately, our Lakeshore Chiropractic practice in Sarasota utilizes only natural treatments rather than medication or surgery. One important therapy is the use of chiropractic adjustments.
Overview of Chiropractic Adjustments
You might have heard of chiropractic adjustments but with a different name. The term is interchangeable with spinal manipulation, chiropractic manipulation, and manual manipulation or adjustment. These terms apply to a variety of techniques in which our chiropractor manipulates vertebrae in the spine that are misaligned, move abnormally, or cannot otherwise function properly.
Adjustments are a core therapy for individuals plagued with back pain. They bring relief from subluxations resulting from injuries, posture problems, or lack of back support. Patients experience better spinal function, reduced nerve irritability, and an increased range of motion.
Chiropractic treatment includes a number of techniques. Our doctor utilizes one or more in combination as part of an individualized treatment plan for each patient.
Chiropractic Care from Our Practice
Chiropractic care from our practice begins with a consultation with our doctor. This initial visit includes a comprehensive physical exam, a review of the patient’s health history, and a discussion of symptoms. It also includes a neurologic assessment. Any X-rays our doctor requires can be performed in the office or off-site.
The goal of our chiropractor is broader than treating a patient’s symptoms. Our practice seeks to find and resolve the cause of the problem. Once our doctor has made a diagnosis, we create a customized treatment plan for each patient.
Chiropractic adjustments are frequently part of a treatment plan. Patients might benefit from one or more of these types:
We design treatment plans to help every patient reach an optimal level of wellness. These plans sometimes include therapies such as massage. We also design individualized exercise programs that help strengthen and correct problems and rehabilitation programs individuals can complete at home. Lifestyle advice includes coaching patients on activities they should modify or avoid to help solve their particular health challenges.
