Doctors of chiropractic are health care professionals for spinal health and well-being. They focus on diagnosis and treatment of neuro-musculoskeletal conditions with an emphasis on treatment through manual adjustment and/or manipulation of the spine. Chiropractors seek to reduce pain and improve the function of patients, as well as educate them on how they can account for their own health and wellness, with treatment options and recommendations that do not rely on the use of medication.See All Physical Rehabilitation Services
Chiropractic treatment plans can include:
- Spinal manipulation/mobilization
- Myofascial release techniques
- Kinesio therapy taping
- Therapeutic exercise
- Pain reduction modalities (traction, ice, heat, electrical stimulation)
- Patient education regarding posture, lifting and self-care to optimize your spinal health
Recent research from the American College of Physicians has demonstrated that chiropractic spinal manipulation is strongly recommended for those individuals suffering from acute and subacute low back pain. In another study, utilization of chiropractic services for the treatment of low back pain, has been shown to decrease and/or eliminate the need for pain medication.
If you are interested in receiving chiropractic care, please schedule an appointment with an FHCSD primary care provider to determine if this treatment is appropriate for you.
