Chiropractor Q & A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care from a licensed chiropractor involves using manual manipulation of your spine or other body parts to correct spinal misalignment. This medical specialty focuses on the relationship between your body’s structure and its function, and is a natural way to correct spinal problems.

What are the benefits of chiropractic care?

If you’ve been injured in an automobile or other accident, chiropractic care might be a good option to correct spinal misalignments and ease your pain naturally. Among the numerous benefits associated with chiropractic care, it can:

  • Reduce low back pain
  • Ease upper back and neck pain
  • Help reduce symptoms of whiplash
  • Reduce headaches
  • Improve your posture
  • Reduce muscle tension or spasms
  • Improve your range of motion
  • Ease pinched nerves

Chiropractic care is a noninvasive way to enhance healing and help you avoid addictive pain medication or invasive surgery in the future.

What should I expect during my appointment?

After a thorough medical evaluation, which includes a discussion of your medical and accident history as well as a physical examination, the medical staff at Rocky Mountain Accident Care lets you know if imaging or other tests are necessary to diagnose an injury.

During chiropractic adjustments, a licensed chiropractor places you in certain positions while you lie on a comfortable chiropractic table. They use their hands to apply controlled pressure to your spine, muscles, and joints, and push your body beyond its usual range of motion.

Chiropractic care feels comfortable, but you might hear cracking or popping sounds during your session. After the procedure, you should feel relaxed. You might notice improvements in the way you feel right away, or it may take several hours or days after the adjustments.

In addition to chiropractic manipulation, your provider may also suggest other natural remedies to ease pain and enhance healing, such as:

  • Massage
  • Acupuncture
  • ComforTrac traction
  • Heat or ice therapy
  • Physical therapy
  • Ultrasound therapy
  • Interferential electrical nerve stimulation

Your doctor may recommend one or more treatments that best match your individual needs. If you suffered an automobile accident or other personal injury, make an appointment with Rocky Mountain Accident Care by phone or online today.
