Chiropractors specialize in the hands on assessment and treatment of joint injuries and dysfunctions. They use several different physical medicine techniques and therapies to help restore pain free joint and muscle function and keep you healthy. 

You will receive a detailed exam and tests to evaluate and address your pain or injury. In some cases, X rays may be taken to help evaluate the spine or joints in more detail. From there, you will receive a variety of physical medicine treatments, including joint manipulation or chiropractic adjustments to help reduce your pain and aid in injury recovery. 

You need detailed health history from your most recent primary care visit and any other pertinent health information. 

The best way to prepare is by having a comprehensive idea of your past health history, and assessing the goals you are seeking to achieve in treatment.

A chiropractor will start assessing your lower back. After the exam, they will determine the best treatments to relieve your back pain. Oftentimes they will perform soft tissue work, manual therapy and gentle chiropractic adjustments to improve your back’s range of motion, decrease stiffness and restore function. Afterwards, they may give you home exercises and stretches to maintain the function and improvements in your spine.

A chiropractor may perform an adjustment or joint manipulation on your neck if you are having neck pain or stiffness. This therapy will help improve neck joint function and mobility and decrease joint stiffness. Oftentimes, the neck will make a “cracking” noise during the therapy. This is called joint cavitation and is secondary to pressure changes in the joint fluid within the neck joints.

The chiropractor will do a detailed assessment and exam to evaluate what areas may need to be treated.

Yes, there is no issue with eating before seeing the chiropractor.

As soon as you have any pain or stiffness that is abnormal for you, you should go get an evaluation from a chiropractor.

Severe illness, and or fractures are typically contraindications with the chiropractor.

This depends on your activity level, lifestyle, goals, and severity of injury. Typical wellness care is one time per month, where more acute injuries can be as much as 2-3x per week for 2-3 weeks.

Both are extremely beneficial in treating joint and muscle pain.

In some cases, you will need to see the chiropractor frequently to achieve the desired therapeutic change you are trying to achieve. Often however, chiropractic treatment 1x month or less is adequate to maintain your health and physical goals.

In some cases, you will need regular chiropractic care for a short period of time to maintain improvement. In other cases and more commonly, infrequent chiropractic care can have a long lasting effect. 

In some cases, adjustments can create mild soreness. Often, adjustments are comfortable and help rescue pain and stiffness.

Any type of clothing is acceptable for a chiropractic visit, but flexible athletic wear is often best.
