For people who suffer from pain, a chiropractor may be able to help. Chiropractors use their expert understanding of the musculoskeletal system to help their patients achieve better alignment of the spine and relieve pressure on the vertebrae that can cause pain. For patients with sciatica or neck pain, chiropractors can often provide lasting relief without pharmaceutical intervention. At Living Well Healthcare in Elkton MD, we are proud to offer this alternative medicine therapy to our patients seeking relief from pain without invasive procedures or prescription drugs.
Chiropractors have been helping people since the 1800s. While chiropractic adjustment is not right for everyone, it can absolutely provide relief for many patients. Chiropractors are most likely to help patients who can benefit from improved posture and alignment. People who have pain caused by neck or back problems, those with sciatica or leg pain, can often benefit from the type of manual manipulation practiced by chiropractors. Many patients also find that improved posture and alignment helps them feel better and more energetic.
Your chiropractor will take some time to get to know you and understand your concerns, so they can provide you with treatment that is tailored to your unique body. This includes discussing your overall health history as well as your pain specifically; when it began, where it is, and its extent. Your chiropractor will also ask if you have any pre-existing conditions or prior injuries they should know about before beginning your treatment. Your chiropractor will perform an exam that includes testing your reflexes, blood pressure measurement, and examining your range of motion, muscle tone, and other related factors.
As with any treatment, your chiropractic therapy is uniquely tailored to you. Most patients will visit a chiropractor on an ongoing basis for at least a short period of time in order to reap the full benefits. However, the length of your sessions and the number required to provide you with the best total benefit is something you and your chiropractor will need to discuss on an individual basis. Many patients find their chiropractic adjustments to be beneficial for their life beyond simply treating the root cause of their pain. Often, improved posture can help unexpectedly in other areas of your life, so you may find that continuing sessions with your chiropractor is beneficial even after you find relief from the problem that originally brought to our office.
