LifeClinic offers various chiropractic services that target different parts of your body. On your first visit, your chiropractor will first get a clear understanding of your condition by asking about your medical history and symptoms. They will also inquire about past injuries, medical conditions, medications you take, and lifestyle habits, including diet, sleep, and exercise.
A thorough physical examination will follow. Your chiropractor will conduct various tests such as moving your joints, feeling your spine, or watching you walk. They will also test strength, reflexes, and range of motion. In some cases, they may order blood pressure tests.
After making an accurate diagnosis, our chiropractors will then develop a treatment plan that suits your condition and needs. The core of your treatment will involve one or two of the following adjustments:
The spine is the main supporting structure of your body. It protects your spinal cord that connects the peripheral nervous system to your brain. Your chiropractor can treat pain in the spine by applying pressure to a specific area. They will also use a specialized tool or do it manually.
A spine alignment procedure assures that the body is in balance. It also makes sure that the central nervous system harmonizes with your body and brain properly.
Misaligned hips cause your joints to be exposed to forces and friction that can damage their structure. This could change your hips’ movement pattern and can result in pain in various parts of your body, including the lower back, knees, and ankles. Moreover, it can cause you to look distorted with uneven shoulders, with one shoulder blade more prominent than the other, and a curved spine.
Hip alignment relieves your discomfort and addresses physical contortions. Moreover, it reduces the chances of the development of more serious problems such as osteoarthritis.
Pain occurring in the upper and lower regions of your back is caused by an imbalance or distortion in the body known as subluxation. Patients may feel a burning or stabbing sensation and mobility issues. They may also experience stiffness, strain, and a limited range of motion.
Back pain can have several risk factors, including your posture, daily activities, and duration of staying on your feet. Back alignment treats your discomfort without undergoing an invasive procedure.
Full Body Adjustment
A full-body adjustment begins with an examination conducted by your chiropractor. This treatment lets them identify the joints in your body that need strengthening and adjustment. This treatment may be done on your spine and upper or lower extremities.
With every full-body adjustment procedure, you receive holistic chiropractic care resulting in better sleep, muscle tension reduction, and lower stress levels. It doesn’t just target certain parts but instead increases mobility and decreases pain throughout the body.
Spinal traction promotes your body’s natural ability to heal itself by stretching the spine. It helps address many complications, including slipped and herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and pinched nerves. It may be done manually or with the use of specialized tools. The manual approach uses only the hands to put people in the state of traction, while the mechanical method may use a series of ropes, slings, and pulleys in relieving pressure.
Holistic & Preventive Care
Chiropractic care is a holistic approach that treats the body, mind, and spirit in the quest to achieve optimal health and wellness. Instead of focusing on a single condition or body system, chiropractic treats the patient as a whole.
Chiropractic therapy is anchored on the belief that a problem should be fixed at its root, not just its symptoms. Identifying the source lets your chiropractor treat your condition holistically to prevent recurrence and further complications.
