Why See a Chiropractor?

When speaking about chiropractic care, most people don’t know what exactly happens in a chiropractic appointment or why people would see a chiropractor. One of the most common misconceptions is that chiropractors specifically exist to treat pain. Whether a person recently was in a rear-end collision or took a fall, chiropractors can help. Well, this is in-fact true; however, chiropractors do much more than treat pain! In order to understand how chiropractic works, a person must first understand the spine. The spine is a series of bones set up specifically to house and protect the spinal cord. The spinal cord is like a superhighway that connects the signals coming from the brain to each and every part of the body. Whether due to an injury, age, misuse of the body, or anatomy, the bones that make up the spinal column can misalign. This in and of itself is not typically life-threatening, but it does put pressure on the spinal cord. Lessening the signal strength from the brain. That’s where Edmonton Chiropractors come in!

Chiropractic Treatment- What is it?

The first appointment with any chiropractor is an overall health, wellness and history check. Your Edmonton chiropractic doctor may request previous health information like; having been in a car accident or suffered any falls? Do you have pain now or have you ever had pain in the past? Do you have numbness or tingling or any other health conditions? An x-ray or scan may also be taken to get an actual visual of the spine and its condition. A treatment plan is then created to address any findings. Treatment plans differ depending on your body’s needs. Typically your chiropractic Dr. will perform manual adjustments and also teach his/her clients stretches that can be done to help the body respond to the adjustment. He/she may also recommend booking a massage appointment. Massages are not a replacement for the adjustment, but they do assist the body in loosening up to allow for a better adjustment.

Adjusting the spine increases the brain’s ability to “speak” to all organs in the body fully and without interference!

Subluxations & Adjustments

What is a subluxation? A subluxation is any spinal bone that has moved from its original location. Subluxations will not typically self-correct and are not something a medical doctor will evaluate. Subluxations are only discovered and treated by professional licensed chiropractors. It is the job of your chiropractic physician to identify and treat subluxations through manual adjustments. An adjustment is the physical and direct movement of the bone to put the bone back into place. Although this may sound painful, it is not. Most new chiropractic clients have a fear of adjustments simply due to the “popcorn” sound it makes. This sound is not bone grinding against bone, but instead gas being released from between the joints.

If you have a subluxation, your Edmonton chiropractor can help!

We are open evenings and weekends and offer emergency care outside of business hours for an additional fee.
