When people think about Chiropractic care they usually think only about spinal manipulation, or as some of our patients say, “Getting their back popped!”
And while spinal manipulation is a big part of what we do, it is by no means the only thing Chiropractors do.
Chiropractic originated as a hands-on healing art meant to help the body heal itself naturally; the way Mother Nature intended. Along with spinal manipulation, Chiropractors also use Physical Medicine Modalities and Therapeutic Procedures such as electrical muscle stimulation or ultrasound (to promote tissue healing) and manual therapies (to address trigger points). They also help patients make necessary life style changes such as diet and exercise, or even suggest spine sparing strategies to rearrange a work station or sleeping position, which will help a person stop harming himself and get quickly back on the road to recovery.
In many cases, chiropractic care can also include using natural pain remedies to help promote healing and tissue repair, or the use of custom-made foot orthotics to help maintain spinal alignment between visits and improve overall biomechanics and function.
Chiropractic care can be many things, and Paragon Chiropractic would be happy to help you determine the best treatment protocol for you.
