Chiropractic Care Q & A

The Vanguard Clinic

What Conditions Does a Chiropractor Treat?

Chiropractors treat patients of all ages, from infants to seniors, for numerous health conditions. Families seek chiropractic care for both acute and chronic ailments including:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Headaches
  • Musculoskeletal injuries and conditions
  • Arthritis and joint pain
  • Diet, nutrition, and weight loss
  • Nervous system problems
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Autoimmune diseases

Since so many health conditions are related in some way to how well your spine and nervous system function, chiropractic adjustments can help improve every system in your body.

How Safe is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care is one of the safest, noninvasive, drug-free therapies available to help relieve you of pain and help you regain mobility. Chiropractors, like the doctor at The Vanguard Clinic, are highly trained and educated in gentle, hands-on spinal manipulation. With chiropractic care, many patients can get long-term pain relief from chronic conditions without becoming dependent on prescription pain medications.

Regular chiropractic care that includes precise spinal manipulation can safely increase mobility in your joints, arms, legs, shoulders, and neck. It can relieve constant pressure and tension on joints that are out of alignment and muscles that are in spasm.

As part of an integrative approach, chiropractic care blended with conventional medical treatments is a highly effective way to treat symptoms and manage pain.  

What Should I Expect at My Chiropractic Appointment?

Since The Vanguard Clinic takes an integrative approach to health care, the doctors consider a variety of factors before beginning any type of treatment plant. At your first consultation, they get to know you, your family health history, and your lifestyle, as well as evaluate your symptoms. This includes a physical exam and any necessary X-rays, so they can get a comprehensive picture of your specific issues.

Once they determine the best way to treat you, the doctors explain therapeutic techniques and how they can help relieve pain or restore mobility. They want to make sure you understand your part in their patient-centered philosophy so you can get the most out of your chiropractic adjustments.

Once you have an individualized treatment plan, your chiropractor focuses on gently adjusting your spine, so over time you get pain relief and better mobility in whatever areas you’re having treated.
