Thank you @imgracedlr for the opportunity to be a part of this great event!

Today we’re going to start our Monday Myths series here at St. John’s Chiropractic and Performance. Where we are going to discuss and break down common myths in the chiropractic or health industry.

When we break these myths down, we want to then replace them with an even better truth – a more positive truth. The first one that we’ll discuss is that chiropractors only adjust their patients.

When you walk in a chiropractor’s office, it’s easy to have the misconception that you’re just going to get adjusted. Even though chiropractors are very good with their hands, their manual skills, their adjusting skills (spinal manipulation); they often have many more skills and many more tools in their tool belt that they can offer their patients.

Chiropractors not only have a broad license, but they also have a broad legal scope, and they receive training in chiropractic school to do many other treatments besides manipulation. And besides that, they are also diagnosticians. So Doctors of Chiropractic can diagnose pretty much any sort of joint pain, muscle ache, tendonitis, or other soft tissue structure in the musculoskeletal system.

Diagnosis & Treatment

Most just think of chiropractors when it comes to low back pain or neck pain. While chiropractic physicians can certainly diagnose many spine related complaints including sciatica, disc bulges, disc herniation, torticollis, radiculopathy, stenosis; chiropractors can diagnose and treat many non-spine related conditions. This includes shoulder pain, elbow pain, knee pain, foot pain, jaw pain, rotator cuff strains, plantar fasciitis,  tendonitis, TMJD (temporomandibular joint disorder), headaches and much more. After the diagnosis, they can give a variety of different treatments besides adjustments.

Starting with soft tissue treatments, they can do therapies like massage, pin and stretch techniques, active release, cupping, sports taping, Kinesio taping, dry needling, and acupuncture. All of those are well within the scope of any chiropractor, especially a sports chiropractor.

Besides that, they can do nutritional therapies, they can order blood work, can look at your diet and map out a plan with you. Many family chiropractors do weight loss interventions, they can recommend supplements and do lifestyle modifications, as well, to help you with your complaint and get you living an even healthier life.

In terms of rehabilitation, chiropractors often do specific rehab exercises, following your injury or your pain to help strengthen and mobilize the area. Their expertise in anatomy and movement allows them to have great knowledge in how stretching and other exercises can aid your condition. The best chiropractor gives at-home exercise programs as well. This not only helps get you out of pain but helps keep the pain away.

Multi-Modal Approach

As you can see, chiropractors can do a lot besides adjust and the elite chiropractors will use many of these different tools in the same patient case. The best chiropractor near you will use what is referred to as a multi-modal approach. During a patient case using the multi-modal approach, the chiropractic physician will diagnose you properly and figure out what the best treatment would be you.

Then they would likely use a combination of adjustments, mobilization, exercises, stretching, and nutritional therapy – they combine the best treatments to give you (the patient) the best care and best results possible. So each treatment would look a little bit different for every patient because every patient has different needs.

Chiropractors are not just adjusters, they have the potential to be your musculoskeletal primary care provider and your holistic health guide that leads you to a lifestyle that is pain-free, active, and accomplishing your health goals. That’s our Monday Myth for the week. We hope you enjoyed our first one. Now that you know chiropractors can do much more than adjust, go tell a friend.

Chiropractors have a very broad and dynamic scope of practice! 

Because of this, there are many ways that a chiropractor can benefit your health & help you achieve your health goals! 

1️⃣ A good chiropractor can give you an accurate diagnosis as to what is causing your pain and why you are having pain. This is done by listening to you and performing a thorough evaluation. Since chiropractors are able to provide you a diagnosis, you do not have to get a referral to see a chiropractor!

2️⃣ Chiropractors have the knowledge, training, and skills to effectively manage your pain. This is done through manual techniques & exercise rehabilitation!

3️⃣ After getting you out of pain, chiropractors then can provide further therapy to restore any mobility or strength limitations you may have. This is done to fix actual the cause of the pain, correct any compensation patterns, and keep you out of pain!

4️⃣ Chiropractors can help you achieve your exercise and athletic goals through a detailed evaluation. This can identify any mobility, strength, nutritional, or lifestyle deficits that need to be corrected in order to maximize your physical performance!

5️⃣ The overall goal of a good chiropractor is to get those in their  community to live healthier lifestyles! This is done by evaluating habits related to sleep, exercise, nutrition, stress management, and more!

We are grateful and humbled when our patients leave us such kind words like this through a Google review!

In this case, our patient had neck pain and pain shooting into his arm and fingers. 

After getting him out of pain as quickly as possible, we were able to get him back to his goals of sitting at his desk without neck pain and lifting weights pain-free!

🏈Former 1st team All-SEC WR Jerry Jeudy suffered a nasty looking high ankle sprain last Sunday. Football players typically miss about twice as many games from a high ankle sprain vs a typical lateral ankle sprain!

So what is a High Ankle Sprain?

- 1–11% of all ankle sprains 

- Often happens in contact sports when a planted foot is forced into a combination of eversion, external rotation, & dorsiflexion

- Damage occurs to ligaments between our shins bones & makes you susceptible to long-term ankle instability

- Most lateral ankle sprains do not require imaging, but with a high ankle sprain, an MRI can be helpful in determining healing times based on tissue damage

- Rehab process is absolutely crucial with this injury!

💪 It is highly likely that Jerry Juedy will be doing rehab the rest of the season & throughout next off-season to make sure his ankle reaches optimal mobility & strength.

🏃🏽‍♂️He will also undergo a slow return to play process where he will be heavily taped above his right ankle ankle joint to provide extra stability.

Chiropractors not only have a broad license, but they also have a broad legal scope, and they receive training in chiropractic school to do many other treatments besides manipulation. And besides that, they are also diagnosticians. So Doctors of Chiropractic can diagnose pretty much any sort of joint pain, muscle ache, tendonitis, or other soft tissue structure in the musculoskeletal system.

Diagnosis & Treatment

Most just think of chiropractors when it comes to low back pain or neck pain. While chiropractic physicians can certainly diagnose many spine related complaints including sciatica, disc bulges, disc herniation, torticollis, radiculopathy, stenosis; chiropractors can diagnose and treat many non-spine related conditions. This includes shoulder pain, elbow pain, knee pain, foot pain, jaw pain, rotator cuff strains, plantar fasciitis,  tendonitis, TMJD (temporomandibular joint disorder), headaches and much more. After the diagnosis, they can give a variety of different treatments besides adjustments.

Starting with soft tissue treatments, they can do therapies like massage, pin and stretch techniques, active release, cupping, sports taping, Kinesio taping, dry needling, and acupuncture. All of those are well within the scope of any chiropractor, especially a sports chiropractor.

Besides that, they can do nutritional therapies, they can order blood work, can look at your diet and map out a plan with you. Many family chiropractors do weight loss interventions, they can recommend supplements and do lifestyle modifications, as well, to help you with your complaint and get you living an even healthier life.

In terms of rehabilitation, chiropractors often do specific rehab exercises, following your injury or your pain to help strengthen and mobilize the area. Their expertise in anatomy and movement allows them to have great knowledge in how stretching and other exercises can aid your condition. The best chiropractor gives at-home exercise programs as well. This not only helps get you out of pain but helps keep the pain away.

Multi-Modal Approach

As you can see, chiropractors can do a lot besides adjust and the elite chiropractors will use many of these different tools in the same patient case. The best chiropractor near you will use what is referred to as a multi-modal approach. During a patient case using the multi-modal approach, the chiropractic physician will diagnose you properly and figure out what the best treatment would be you.

Then they would likely use a combination of adjustments, mobilization, exercises, stretching, and nutritional therapy – they combine the best treatments to give you (the patient) the best care and best results possible. So each treatment would look a little bit different for every patient because every patient has different needs.

Chiropractors are not just adjusters, they have the potential to be your musculoskeletal primary care provider and your holistic health guide that leads you to a lifestyle that is pain-free, active, and accomplishing your health goals. That’s our Monday Myth for the week. We hope you enjoyed our first one. Now that you know chiropractors can do much more than adjust, go tell a friend.

When we break these myths down, we want to then replace them with an even better truth – a more positive truth. The first one that we’ll discuss is that chiropractors only adjust their patients.
