What can you expect at a chiropractic treatment?
Unlike the old days, when chiropractic was synonymous with adjustments, today's treatments are much more multifaceted and sometimes adjustments are a last resort. Chiropractic treatments now incorporate modalities such as muscle activation and myofascial stretching, acupuncture, electric acupuncture, cupping, taping, and other treatments. Chiropractic helps with easing pain associated with misalignment in the skeleton and muscle imbalances. Chiropractic can help ease neck pain, back pain, hip and leg pain, shoulder pain or limited range of motion. The treatments selected and frequency of treatments depends on the patient's needs, lifestyle and activity level. Chiropractic can be used to recover from injury, or as part of a regular wellness maintenance program in conjunction with exercise.
