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. And so to this end, along with spinal manipulation, Chiropractors also use physio-therapies such as electrical muscle stim or ultrasound to promote tissue healing, manual therapies to address (trigger points), and can 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 to 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.
