Spinal Adjustments, Chiropractor Care in Frisco, TX
Simply put, chiropractic adjustments allow for the movement of a joint beyond its usual range of motion to allow it to return to its proper place naturally. A Frisco chiropractor or chiropractic doctor can perform this treatment to improve flexibility and physical function, especially in the spine.
Why Might I Need Chiropractic Adjustment?
The procedure is most often done to relieve back pain, neck pain and headaches. Low back pain perhaps is the most popular and frustrating reason to visit one of our Frisco chiropractors. Chiropractors work based upon the knowledge that your body has a natural ability to heal itself. Chiropractic adjustments are meant to help your body respond to improper bone structure and posture in order to heal itself.
What to Expect
Typically, our chiropractors will be adjusting the joints in your back and/or spine, but they can also do so in your neck and shoulders. On the first visit we focus on information like your medical history and performing an exam of the affected area. This could include X-rays, depending on the injury. During the adjustment, a chiropractor will place you in a specific position to treat the area and uses gentle, controlled force to the joint to move it. While there will often be a popping sound, there is no need for alarm. After several sessions, the joints will be used to the movement and no longer pop. Pain is also very rare and only slight in those who have a problem relaxing their muscles for the procedure.
Depending upon the severity of your chiropractic condition, we may also suggest other therapies combined with the chiropractic adjustment. We offer nutrition for pain management, as well as massages.
