At Core Medical Center, we take the time to assess your condition to determine whether chiropractic care should be part of your customized treatment plan.
Tissue damage anywhere in the body can cause pain, inflammation, restricted movement, and diminished function. In many of these cases, chiropractic care can help. Chiropractic adjustments, or spinal manipulation, involves manually adjusting your bones to restore joint mobility, alleviate pain, loosen tight muscles, and relax pinched nerves. This provides damaged tissue the opportunity to heal – and it is why hands-on chiropractic therapy is an effective solution to many medical problems causing pain.
Some of the chiropractic techniques we use at Core Medical Center include:
Quick, short manual thrusts are delivered to precise areas of the spine, arms, or legs in order to restore proper alignment and movement. The diversified technique is considered one of the most common and effective chiropractic methods in use today.
Thompson Drop Table
During a manual adjustment, an area of the table drops slightly, which moves the area being adjusted slightly, providing a more thorough adjustment as well as a more comfortable experience for patients.
Cox Flexion Distraction
A specially designed table is used to apply a gentle stretch during an adjustment. This helps to decompress the spine and relieve back, neck, arm, or leg pain. The flexion distraction technique is ideal when treating herniated discs, scoliosis, and other conditions.
This technique involves the use of a hand-held device to deliver what feels like a light, gentle thumping into vertebra of the spine. The activator technique is used to treat migraines, low back pain, neuropathy, and much more.
Active release technique (ART) targets soft tissue disorders by incorporating stretching and movement during an adjustment. This helps break up scar tissue, relieve stiffness, restore flexibility, and encourage proper healing.
Uses & Benefits of Chiropractic Care
When you receive chiropractic care at Core Medical Center, you benefit in a number of ways.
First and foremost, you can expect improved health and well-being, including relief of symptoms you may be experiencing, such as back pain, neck pain, or numbness and tingling in the arms or legs. Additional benefits of our chiropractic care include:
- Addresses your pain – without surgery or prescription drugs
- Part of a customized, comprehensive treatment plan
- Evaluation of other health issues your spinal problem may be contributing to
- Guidance on lifestyle choices that can aid your recovery
- Regular, convenient appointments for optimal treatment results
- Healing in one of the most natural ways possible
Instead of simply treating your symptoms with pain medication – which offers temporary relief at best – chiropractic care can address the source of your pain. Below are some of the ways chiropractic care can do this.
Spinal Decompression for Back Pain
Spinal decompression involves stretching the spine, to improve alignment and relieve symptoms caused by pressure on the vertebra, spinal discs, as well as any impinged nerves in the area. Decompression is especially beneficial for patients with bulging, degenerating, or herniated discs.
Physical Rehab to Speed Your Recovery
Depending on your injury or condition, there are likely to be certain stretches and exercises that can further promote healing and help you recover even faster. How quickly you recover after an injury or disease will be determined, in part, on your active collaboration with your physical therapist. Being a committed partner with our medical staff is one of the best ways to achieve optimal results.
Whiplash – when the head snaps forcefully forward and backward – is a common neck injury, especially in car accidents. Whiplash can cause neck pain that increases in intensity until it becomes painful to turn your neck at all. Chiropractic adjustments can help ease the pain of whiplash and promote a full and effective recovery.
