However, with help from your chiropractor, you can find the best course of treatment for you and your body.

What is chiropractic?
Chiropractors focus on using a hands-on approach to provide a drug-free answer to treating issues associated with the neuromuscular system and spine. Chiropractic often works with traditional medicine to help get you back on your feet. Chiropractors treat the joints and the soft tissues which surround them, performing manual adjustments to align the spinal column and therapies relating to the soft tissues.
Can chiropractic treatment help my back pain?
Chiropractic has proven to be successful in treating back pain. By aligning the bones in the spine, it takes pressure off of the sensitive neurological tissues around them, helping relieve pain and increase the joints' range of motion and functionality. Many patients return to their chiropractor every few months or weeks for maintenance adjustments to keep up with their results.
What can I expect from an appointment with my chiropractor?
Your chiropractor will perform an examination and ask about your medical, family, and lifestyle history. The examination allows your chiropractor to determine your areas of concern and where they should focus during their treatment. During your treatment, your doctor will ask you to lie on an examination table. They will then begin your adjustment, a procedure famous for “cracking” the back. However, the cracking noises you may hear are simply trapped gases escaping from between the joints, not your bones themselves. This is totally normal and no cause for concern.
