Chiropractic Treatment

Chiropractor is usually amongst the last resort medicine man to be visited when all other forms of treatment have failed. The first time visitors are surprised to find the treatment to be far less painful when compared to all that they have already gone through. This is when they realize that a chiropractor addresses the body as a whole and not the spinal cord alone.

The first visit to a chiropractor takes longer because he/she will want to know all about any medical conditions you have so as to know what form of treatment would be best for you. There will be forms to fill out. The chiropractor will review these sheets before you enter the office and he/she may have some further questions to ask you about information you provided.  For the immediate problem you are having the doctor will ask you specific questions such as:

When did your pain start?

Where is the pain located?

Any specific activities or motions that make the pain worse or better?

Is there any injury in the background causing the pain? Etc.

This is followed by a through medical examination which is quite detailed. This is not your run of the mill process but here besides the regular such as blood pressure, pulse and temperature there would be neurological and orthopedic examinations of the body part having pain. Like in the case of spine these tests would be done for the spine. You would also be checked up for muscle tone, motion and strength in the painful region. The doctor could have other chiropractic tests done to arrive at the diagnosis. But don't worry these are essential to take the right decision.  

Once the problem is understood, the chiropractor will determine if the condition will respond to chiropractic care. He/She will explain the condition from which you are suffering and the chiropractic treatment plan that will be used as well as how long these treatments may take. The frequency of visits varies you may only need one treatment or your condition may require regular treatment such as 2 or 3 times per week over a period of weeks or even months. The seriousness of your condition or the amount of pain you are in determines this frequency of chiropractic care. The intent is to lessen the pain so that you can perform your normal daily routine and to stabilize your problem.

At your first instance of chiropractic treatment you may require an adjustment to be made to your vertebrae to regularize movement or induce movement. In this adjustment, pressure is applied to your spine either through hands or through a device. This process has very little or almost no pain associated with it. But there are chances of discomfort for a few seconds.

In chiropractic treatment the X-rays and MRI's are important to gauge the true condition of the patient on the inside. If you have any old scans etc please do show them to the concerned doctor.

Most, but not all insurance covers chiropractic care. You can call and get your chiropractic coverage before you go in. Or most chiropractic offices will call and find out your coverage for you.

Many who go to a chiropractor once get such relief, that for future problems they go to the chiropractor first.
