Why is a Chiropractor Good for You?

At least 70 million adults deal with some type of chronic pain. In fact, lower back pain is the second most common reason adults see their doctors.


Many people are interested in finding alternatives to medication for pain relief. Chiropractic treatment is one potential pain management option, especially if you’re dealing with back pain or neck pain.


What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic treatment often focuses on your spine but may focus on other parts of your body depending on the particular issue you’re dealing with. Chiropractic treatment has some similarities with physical therapy, and certain conditions may benefit from being treated with both types of therapy.


What to expect at your first chiropractic appointment


First visits often last about an hour. Your chiropractor will ask about your medical history and about your symptoms. Tell your chiropractor about:

  • Why you want help

  • Past injuries

  • All your medical conditions

  • Any medications you take

  • Any use of drugs or alcohol

  • Your lifestyle habits including exercise, diet, stress and sleep



What does a chiropractor do in a typical session?

They'll check your reflexes, joints, hip flexors, spine, neck and posture. You may need to twist your body in different ways to check your range of motion. Your chiropractor may press on areas and ask if it hurts to help identify the problem. Your chiropractor will have their own approach to addressing your needs. The assessment will have a short term and long term plan to help you with your specific needs.
