What Can A Chiropractor Do For You?

Many people have no idea what a Chiropractic Physician does. Other people have been to one Chiropractic before and they know exactly what that one does. Some people have been to multiple Doctors of Chiropractic and are probably very confused on what a Chiropractor actually does because no two of them practice exactly the same! This is because Chiropractors have a very broad and dynamic scope of practice! (Click here to learn how we are different from other Chiropractors)

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

The best Chiropractors 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 your story and by performing a thorough evaluation. Since Chiropractors can provide you a diagnosis, you do not have to get a referral to see one! They are called “portal of entry providers.” This basically means that you can schedule an appointment with them without a referral from your primary care doctor.

After giving you a diagnosis, Chiropractors have the knowledge, training, and skills to effectively manage your pain. This is often done through manual techniques such as spinal manipulation (chiropractic adjustment), soft-tissue therapy, & exercise rehabilitation! Some Sports Chiropractors provide powerful techniques such as manual release techniques, massage guns, cupping, sports taping (kinesiotaping), and more!

After getting you out of pain, the best 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! Many good Chiropractors can reduce pain in their patients, but the best ones not only reduce pain but also correct the dysfunction that caused the pain in the first place!

What Are Your Health Goals?

Chiropractors can help you perform your best at whatever fulfills you in life! This can partially be done by helping you with your exercise and athletic goals through a detailed evaluation. This can identify any mobility, strength, nutritional, or lifestyle deficits that may be present. After this, they can help you correct any of these deficits to maximize your physical performance! We want you to perform your best at whatever fulfills you in life!

The overall goal of a good chiropractor is to get those in their community to live healthier lifestyles! The most prevalent chronic diseases, illnesses, and pains are predominantly caused by poor modifiable lifestyle choices that cause chronic inflammation. So are the little symptoms such as mid-day fatigue, stomach bloating, and brain fog that effect many of us daily. Chiropractors should evaluate lifestyle habits and give advice related to sleep, exercise, nutrition, ergonomics, stress management, and more to ensure that you are doing all you can to have optimal health!
