What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractors are physicians that use hands-on spinal manipulation and other treatments to ensure that the musculoskeletal structure is in proper alignment. This method is preferred for some over medication or surgery. Manipulation is a way to help restore mobility in joints and provide relief. The process is highly effective and has no side effects, unlike pharmaceutical drugs. The process may take several visits and an adjustment in lifestyle habits, but it can truly provide relief from the pain that you are experiencing.
What Happens in the Doctor’s Office?
When entering our office, it is just like visiting your traditional doctor. We will go through the medical history and perform a physical exam. There may also be diagnostic imaging, such as x-ray or MRI, ordered to determine the best course of treatment. The treatment plan may involve manual adjustments, a different diet, certain exercises, and even supplements. The plan is customized to the individual and their exact condition. Without a customized plan, the therapeutic techniques may not be effective for your unique situation.
One of the top supplements recommended by our office is called Relax Already. This product combines the natural ingredients of lemon balm, valerian root, chamomile flower, cramp bark, and passion flower. It helps with stress and anxiety and it works on the body as a natural muscle relaxant. Using this product is a way to help the body heal and relax after a traumatic event, which will also help the chiropractic sessions work more effectively. Another great product is CryoDerm gel, which is a therapeutic product that reduces muscle and joint pain. It has the natural ingredients of peppermint oil, boswella, eucalyptus, ilex, menthol, MSM, and arnica. This product works great after an adjustment session, because it allows the newly stretched and manipulated joints to get relief.
Chiropractic treatment can be the best option for a sore back, neck, headaches or migraines. If your traditional drugs are not providing relief, consider this natural alternative to provide healing. Come in and visit with our team and let us provide a consultation and treatment plan that fits your unique condition. All you have to lose is the pain. Dr. Spitz can provide the relief you seek, so contact him before you make a decision to undergo surgery, which should be your last option.
