What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care involves hands-on spinal manipulation that works to realign the spine into its proper positioning. Via chiropractic adjustments, a Denver chiropractor can address various issues affecting the musculoskeletal system, including your nervous system. As a result of the chiropractic adjustments, patients can experience quick pain relief, improved mobility, and additional health benefits. As an alternative to surgery or medication, chiropractic care is seen as a safe and holistic form of care that can improve your overall health and wellness.

What Healthcare Issues Can Chiropractors Treat?

While many people associate chiropractors with treating chronic back pain, neck pain, or even shoulder pain, this is just the tip of the iceberg to what an experienced chiropractor can do. The human body is a complex, interconnected system. That’s why when you treat one part of the body, the rest also benefits. When a chiropractor works to realign your spine and provide relief to your nervous system, many patients experience additional benefits. This is why chiropractic care is so effective at treating a range of injuries and ailments.

What exactly does a chiropractor do

In addition to back pain, chiropractors can also effectively treat:

  • Limited mobility
  • Joint stiffness or pain
  • Hand weakness
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Sciatica pain
  • Muscle pain
  • Neck and head pain
  • Inflammatory arthritis
  • Auto accident injuries
  • Sports-related injuries

Even if you’re not currently recovering from an injury, receiving regular chiropractic care can improve your overall health and even help you prevent future injuries. Visiting a chiropractor is ideal for athletes or anyone who simply enjoys an active lifestyle.

How Does Chiropractic
Care Work?

Following an initial physical evaluation, your chiropractor may begin your therapy with a series of chiropractic adjustments. While different types of adjustments will vary, chiropractic care is based on a series of hands-on adjustments that work to realign your musculoskeletal system back into its proper positioning. Injuries, poor posture, or just the wear and tear of daily life can shift your body out of its natural alignment. But with chiropractic adjustments realigning your body, you can experience a range of health benefits. Chiropractic adjustments can effectively address mobility issues and provide pain relief throughout the body.

During a chiropractic adjustment, your chiropractor will apply pressure to your back, shoulder, neck, or any other joint area that is causing pain or may be out of alignment. Your chiropractor will apply quick and firm pressure to shift your musculoskeletal system, encouraging it to return to its proper positioning.

Following an adjustment, patients often feel quick pain relief and may feel like they’re standing up a little bit straighter. Similar to many other types of care, it’s important to note that multiple visits will often improve your overall recovery and results. That’s why your chiropractor may recommend that you come back within a few days to receive another adjustment.

Do Chiropractic Adjustments Hurt?

For the vast majority of patients, chiropractic adjustments do not cause any pain or discomfort. During a standard chiropractic session, you may hear a pop or crack or feel some pressure from the adjustments, but it’s rare to experience any pain during the treatment. In fact, for most patients, receiving chiropractic care is the complete opposite. Chiropractic adjustments can offer quick and effective pain relief. Some patients even note that the adjustments feel pleasant and can help them calm down and relax.

Following a chiropractic session, it’s common to feel a little bit of soreness or minor aches in the muscles. But this is actually a good thing. Why? These symptoms of soreness actually indicate that your body is healing itself naturally. It’s comparable to how your body might feel a bit sore after a good workout at the gym.

Treatment Techniques

Manipulation

Chiropractic manipulation or an adjustment is a manual, hands on, treatment that induces the proper motion through restricted joints. Restricted joints can be due to numerous factors such as injuries, trauma, posture, sports injuries, or repetitive stress. A restricted joint can be a source of pain or movement limitation.

Active Release Therapy

Active Release Technique™, or ART, is a non-invasive treatment used to correct conditions arising from overuse, repetitive stress injuries, sports and other injuries, aches, pains, chronic and acute conditions. It is also ideal for post-surgery therapy.

Traction

Chiropractic traction is one of the most widely used and accepted treatments for spinal, muscle and skeletal pain. The term “traction” applies to the use of weights and other forces to treat skeletal disorders, disc herniations, bulging discs, pinched or compressed nerves. Traction can also be utilized for symptoms arising from muscles and ligaments by stretching these structures and increasing the space between vertebrae.

Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP)

CBP is a science-based, highly advanced chiropractic technique which has been proven to correct and restore spinal curvatures. Dr. Schnider is one of only a few CBP-Certified Doctor of Chiropractic in Colorado. CBP combines the studies of anatomy, physiology, physics, and geometry to properly pinpoint the causes of your pain, lack of mobility, discomfort, and other ongoing health issues.

Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression is a non-surgical, traction type of therapy for the relief or elimination of low back pain, sciatica symptoms, numbness and tingling into your arms or legs. The Triton DTS Decompression Therapy is FDA approved and has a high success rate for decreasing and eliminating pain associated with herniated or bulging discs.

During treatment, the injured area is distracted and relaxed at specific intervals, this allows for the proper treatment of the affected area. With proper positioning of the table and patient, each disc can be isolated independently of each other allowing for the specific treatment that each individual needs.

Flexion Distraction Technique

Flexion Distraction is a chiropractic technique used to treat many symptoms and conditions of the lumbar spine. It is a non-surgical technique aimed at increasing spinal motion and resolving disc bulges, protrusions, and disc herniations. The treatment is excellent as a safe, gentle, non-force procedure and works well to take pressure off the spinal nerves that may be injured or dysfunctional.

Electrical Muscle Stimulation

Electrical stimulation is a type of modality where four pads are placed around the injured area topically on the skin. The purpose of electrical stimulation is to relieve discomfort/pain, reduce muscle spasms, and to restore muscle tone. If you have an injury that causes pain or limits your mobility, we may opt to use electrical stimulation, or E-stim, as one part of your rehabilitation program.
