Question For Dr. George? firstname.lastname@example.org
Chiropractic care has been shown to be one of the most effective and safe approaches to the treatment of neck, lower back pain and headaches as well as shoulder, hip, knee, foot and various other ailments. If vertebrae are restricted in movement or position they can cause irritation to the adjacent nerves, joints, discs and muscles. Spinal manipulation, or “adjustments”, align and balance the spine to restore ease of movement and function to spinal problems that cause pain and/or stiffness to a particular region of your body.
After a detailed history of your condition and a chiropractic examination, the location of your misalignment or spinal dysfunction is determined and adjustments are provided to restore normal movement and position of the vertebrae. In addition, your examination will determine if your condition is caused by an alignment problem, disc problem or other cause and appropriate recommendations will be provided.
Soft tissue work may be provided in the form of Active Release Technique (A.R.T.) to treat “adhesions” or areas of painful, tight or restricted muscles, fascia, ligaments or tendons. A.R.T. has shown to be one of the best complimentary treatment tools and can aid in the effectiveness and ease of providing a specific chiropractic adjustment.
While Chiropractic care is very effective in the relief of pain, rehabilitation is often needed to further balance and strengthen areas of weakness or dysfunction that contribute or cause discomfort. The Functional Movement System is used to determine what is the best course of corrective exercise for you that will reduce the chances of your condition returning and providing a precise path to an improved level of function and fitness.
