What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care involves manual manipulation of your body to restore spinal alignment. The chiropractor uses various techniques and physical exercises to help your spinal column, including the vertebrae and intervertebral discs, fall back into an optimally aligned position. Manual manipulation of the musculoskeletal structure also allows chiropractors to restore joint mobility, which may be affected due to injuries, repetitive stress, or other factors. Chiropractic care alleviates pain from your tendons, muscles, ligaments, and joints while encouraging your body to heal itself.

What does chiropractic care include?

At Glen Rock Spine & Rehab, your chiropractic treatment starts with a comprehensive evaluation. The chiropractor reviews your medical history, performs a physical examination, and runs advanced diagnostic imaging tests to visualize the condition of your musculoskeletal structure. The evaluation allows us to determine if you’re a viable candidate for chiropractic treatment and, if so, curate the ideal treatment plan.

The chiropractor manually manipulates your joints and spinal structure using controlled and sudden force to adjust your joints and musculoskeletal components, restoring optimal alignment and range of motion. Chiropractic care at Glen Rock often includes nutrition education and physical therapy to gradually build up your muscular strength. Chiropractic care helps you recover from injuries and accidents while minimizing future instances of back pain.

Depending on your specific condition and goals, your chiropractic treatment may include the following methods and techniques:

  • Spinal Decompression: Suitable for patients with slipped discs, this technique restores the optimal alignment of your intervertebral discs, taking pressure off the nerve roots.
  • Diversified Method: This is a general technique that allows us to correct subluxations, i.e., partial dislocations, on the spine, ligaments, and joints.
  • Once aligned, your body can heal the injuries.
  • Graston Method: If you have scar tissues due to sporting injuries or accidents, this technique breaks down the scar tissues to restore mobility.
  • Thompson Method: This technique involves using gravity-aided methods and a drop table to restore musculoskeletal alignment.
  • Other Procedures: We select the ideal chiropractic method based on your specific goals and needs, and, if necessary, we combine the treatment with physical therapy, laser therapy, or acupuncture to boost the recovery.

In some cases, we may recommend interventional or regenerative treatments instead, or we may combine chiropractic care with other therapies for optimal results.

How does chiropractic care work?

Chiropractic care works on the principle of spinal alignment. The optimal alignment and positioning of the musculoskeletal structure, including the spine, muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints, and other connective tissues, allows us to function at our best capacity. It ensures optimal mobility, flexibility, and range of motion.

However, age-related wear-and-tear, accidents, injuries, and underlying medical conditions lead to spinal misalignment or the gradual deterioration of the connective tissues. Chiropractic care restores the alignment of the entire musculoskeletal structure, which, in turn, alleviates pain and encourages your body to heal.
