Chiropractic Q & A

What is chiropractic?

Chiropractic care is a form of alternative medicine that utilizes hands-on therapies and lifestyle counseling to relieve acute and chronic joint, muscle, and nerve pain without the use of medications or surgery. Doctors of chiropractic (DC), or chiropractors, have extensive training in the diagnosis and treatment of neuromusculoskeletal conditions using conservative methods. The team provides in-office referrals or referrals to specialists for conditions outside the scope of chiropractic practice.

What do chiropractors do?

Chiropractors use a variety of techniques to address physical pain and discomfort and help you recover after trauma, an injury, or surgery so you can return to your normal level of physical function and comfort. Therapies that chiropractors offer include:

  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Physiotherapy
  • Nutritional counseling, like functional medicine
  • Rehab stretches and exercises
  • Soft tissue therapy
  • Lifestyle counseling, like ergonomic changes to your workstation to relieve pain

With chiropractic care at Harbor Comprehensive Health, you can enjoy the benefits of hands-on, personalized care. Chiropractic care can also complement other services in the office, including regenerative medicine, orthopedics, and weight loss.

What conditions can chiropractic help?

Chiropractic care can help anyone struggling with neuromusculoskeletal complaints like:

  • Chronic neck pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Back pain
  • Headaches
  • Pinched nerves
  • Lower back pain
  • Herniated discs
  • Shoulder pain
  • Numbness and tingling in the arms, hands, legs, or feet
  • Hip or pelvic pain
  • Arthritis
  • Degenerative joint disease

To determine if you’re a candidate for chiropractic care, the team performs a thorough consultation and physical exam. Some conditions may benefit from chiropractic adjustments while others improve best with physiotherapy, rehab exercises and stretches, or other conservative therapies.

What is a chiropractic adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment is one of the most common and well-known therapies that chiropractors offer. If your provider recommends a chiropractic adjustment to relieve pain or improve the range of motion of an injured joint, you lie down on a chiropractic table either on your side, face down, or face up to start. Your chiropractic professional then places their hands on either side of the affected joint and applies a quick, direct impulse.

You may feel or hear some popping, clicking, or cracking during the adjustment, which takes less than a minute to perform. Any noises you hear are due to carbon dioxide gas bubbles popping within the joint, which can relieve pressure. Patients often notice an immediate improvement in their range of motion and may feel looser or more relaxed.
