Chiropractic care is widely recognized and appreciated for its holistic approach to wellness and healing. Many times, when there is an injury or pain being experienced in the body, chiropractic care can be a beneficial option that does not involve medications or invasive surgery. The back, neck, knees and shoulders are common areas where people can feel pain or have trauma and a chiropractor can help to alleviate symptoms with manual adjustments along with other accompanying treatments.
Chiropractic adjustment or manipulation is a procedure that utilizes the highly refined skills developed by your chiropractor. The chiropractor typically uses his or her hands, or an instrument, to manipulate the joints of the body, particularly the spine, in order to restore or enhance joint function. This often helps cure joint inflammation and also reduces pain. Chiropractic manipulation is a highly controlled procedure that rarely causes discomfort. The Chiropractors at Trauma Associates of Florida adapt the chiropractic treatments to meet the specific needs of each patient. Our patients often experience instant relief and comfort after chiropractic adjustments.
How Chiropractic Care Relates To Your Posture And How It Can Help
Good posture can prevent problems such as a back injury, or nerve damage. Having good posture will reduce stress on the bones and minimize any chances of deformities and pain. Chiropractic care can help improve your posture and a chiropractor can do a variety of treatments to support good posture. Also, chiropractic care is commonly utilized to treat nerves, muscles, bones complaints. This can be back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches too.
Chiropractic Adjustment or Spinal Manipulation
This is when a chiropractor will come in and use his or her hands or maybe a small tool to apply quick pressure to a spinal joint. The goal of the chiropractic adjustment is to enhance the motion and boost the person’s body’s physical function.
Chiropractors will assign selective exercises to treat pain. The selective exercises help by strengthening the back, neck, and other possible places where the problem has occurred. The selective exercises can help lessen the pain, prevent any potential muscle deterioration, promote joint health, boost more strength, stabilize the range of motion, and protect against new or recurring injuries.
This is when the chiropractor assigns specific stretches to keep flexibility in the muscles, reduces the chances of coming back, and boost mobility as well. The chiropractor will monitor the individual if it’s necessary.
Ice and Heat Therapy
Ice and heat serve different purposes to treat the pain. Ice therapy is used to reduce swelling and help control pain right after an injury occurred. Heat therapy is used to relax the muscles, increase circulation, and provide relief to chronic pain.
Trigger Point Therapy
This is when an individual has pain only in a specific area. This therapy will increase blood flow and relieve the pain.
Cold Laser Therapy
This is when an individual will come in and the cold laser (painless) will go to the affected area. Cold laser therapy will reduce the tension. Also, cold laser therapy will enhance the speed and strength of tissue repair and decrease any swelling and pain dramatically.
The goal of this procedure is to decrease inflammation, diminish muscle spasms and to ease back and muscle pain.
This is designed for the spine and will separate each vertebrae calmly. The end results will be disc decompression, minimum nerve root pressure, and reduce future pain.
Each treatment varies for each individual, the individual will need to seek a chiropractor for assistance.
