Chiropractic Care Q & A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care is an approach to medicine that addresses health concerns through a hands-on, drug-free treatment. Chiropractors examine, diagnose, and treat a number of conditions that affect your musculoskeletal, nervous, and general health. Chiropractic care relies on clinical examinations and diagnostics to determine the need for medical intervention.

Chiropractic care balances the complex systems in the body to achieve overall health and wellness. In addition to soft and hard tissue conditions, chiropractors also address chronic diseases. Chiropractors use musculoskeletal treatments, health counseling, and therapeutic exercises to help patients overcome their conditions and improve their health.


What conditions can be addressed with chiropractic care?

Most patients see a chiropractor when they’ve experienced a soft- or hard-tissue injury like a neck strain. Chiropractors are trained in effective musculoskeletal treatments as well as integrative practices to address chronic conditions and general health concerns. Chiropractic care can be used to address a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Arthritis
  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Allergies
  • Insomnia


Chiropractic care is an essential tool in maintaining overall health and addressing the underlying causes of your conditions. Chiropractors take a conservative approach to patient care, choosing minimally invasive effective treatments.


What treatments are available?

Chiropractic treatments are minimally invasive, drug-free, and low risk. Chiropractic treatments offer patients the best option to effectively address their health concerns without the use of prescription medications or risky procedures.

Chiropractic care is integrative and often involves a combination of traditional and innovative techniques to improve your health. Chiropractic treatments include:

Adjustments

Adjustments are one of the most common chiropractic procedures. To perform this hands-on treatment, your provider manually applies a controlled amount of force to the joints in your spine. Also known as spinal manipulation, adjustments are a proven treatment of issues like lower back pain, neck pain, and migraine headaches.

Nonsurgical spinal decompression

Nonsurgical spinal decompression is used to relieve compressive pain. In many cases, back and neck pain is caused by compressed — pinched — nerves in the spine. Peak Physical Medicine uses an innovative decompression system to reduce the pressure on the nerves and relieve pain.

Diet and nutrition counseling

Poor nutrition is the leading contributor to a number of serious health concerns, including musculoskeletal conditions like osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. Nutrition counseling provides you with the personalized tools you need to take control of your diet and maintain a healthy body weight.
