Why should I see a chiropractor?
Updated: Jul 25, 2020
The focus and primary objective of chiropractic care is to reduce pain and restore proper function - as well as promote health and improve your quality of life. Chiropractic therapy is an evidence based, hands-on health care discipline which focuses on inter-connectedness and the musculoskeletal system. The goal of chiropractic therapy is to not only restore - but to prevent disorder, injury, and pain. The primary outcome of chiropractic care is the restoration of the functional integrity of your body’s spine, joints, nerves and muscles through manual adjustments of joints and muscles.
Chiropractors can treat a wide range of ailments of the musculoskeletal system including but not limited to: back and neck pain, strains, sprains, arthritis, headaches, work/sport injuries and postural dysfunctions and more! At LiveWell Health and Wellness, our chiropractors do a comprehensive intake to fully understand your therapeutic needs. While they are proficient in manipulations, they also use other therapies such as muscle release therapy, as well as laser and other instrument assisted soft tissue therapy - for an optimal therapeutic outcome.
Our chiropractors are patient-centric, which means they take time to listen to and evaluate your therapeutic needs. During your intake consultation your chiropractic doctor will listen to your history, identify your primary complaints, as well as understand your current and past medical history and lifestyle. This full understanding empowers your chiropractor to design a therapeutic approach that is right for you.
During your in-depth physical exam your chiropractor will determine the root cause of the concern. This may include; checking your vitals, postural analysis, gait analysis, range of motion testing, muscle testing, orthopedic testing, neurological testing as well as palpation of muscles and joint.
Following the intake and in-depth physical exam, your chiropractor will determine a diagnosis - and take the time to fully explain their findings and answer any questions or concerns you may have. They will provide you with a detailed treatment plan, tailored to you and your needs.
