Chiropractic Care Q & A

What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care is an excellent alternative medical practice centered around diagnosing and treating problems with your musculoskeletal system, including your muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. Spinal manipulation is one of the main focuses of chiropractic care.

Your spine is a key part of your central nervous system, with a complex network of peripheral nerves branching throughout your entire body. 

Improving your spinal health can often relieve pain in other parts of your body and benefit your overall wellbeing and functioning.

What Do Chiropractors Treat?

The East Tremont Medical Center chiropractors take a holistic approach to treatment and care for the whole person rather than just masking the symptoms of the disease. The friendly chiropractors treat a range of musculoskeletal conditions and complications, such as:

  • Neck, back, shoulder, hip, and leg pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Sciatica
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Herniated discs
  • Pinched nerves
  • Whiplash
  • Tennis elbow
  • Plantar fasciitis

 

Conventional medicine often addresses these problems with invasive procedures or medications, but chiropractic care takes a different approach. Chiropractic care might reduce or eliminate your need for pain-relieving medication and surgery.

What Should I Expect from Chiropractic Treatment?

Your first visit to East Tremont Medical Center is usually more involved and takes more time as your chiropractor spends time reviewing your medical history, answering your questions, and discussing your symptoms.

Your chiropractor thoroughly evaluates your physical condition and might suggest a convenient in-office X-ray to check for skeletal abnormalities. Your chiropractor might also observe your posture as you move around or stand still.

Your chiropractor explains your treatment options and discusses your condition in detail to help you make an informed decision about your health. Most chiropractic treatments involve the controlled manipulation of your spine and other joints. Your chiropractor might apply gentle force to specific areas using a handheld instrument or their hands.

Depending on the severity and type of your condition, your chiropractor might suggest one or more of the following chiropractic treatments:

  • Spinal manipulation to correct misalignments
  • Massage therapy
  • Cold and heat packs
  • Strengthening exercises and stretches to perform at home
  • Nutritional advice and stress and sleep management
  • Weight loss counseling


Your chiropractor usually advises you on lifestyle changes that can promote overall wellbeing, such as relaxation and stress-reduction techniques to reduce muscle tension.
