What to Expect During Your Chiropractic Consultation
During your first appointment for mid back pain or lower back pain, our chiropractor will ask about your symptoms and the severity of your discomfort. We will also ask about your medical history and any treatments you may have tried to relieve your symptoms. We may also perform imaging to learn about your health and condition before developing a customized treatment plan.
Chiropractic Care for Pain Relief
Chiropractic adjustments will be an integral part of your treatment. We utilize adjustments to realign your spine and help your joints function properly. Once your spine is realigned, our chiropractor will use supportive therapies to keep it aligned. Ultrasound and electrical muscle stimulation help to improve circulation, while decompression techniques help ease any strain in regions that are compressed. Your treatment will be designed for your specific needs and will depend on the root cause of your back pain.
Stretching and Strengthening Exercise Programs
You may be taught exercises to stretch and strengthen your body, which you will perform at home in between sessions. These exercises are progressive and they should not be painful for you to perform. Our chiropractors want to help strengthen your body without causing additional pain. If you aren’t fully sure how to do an exercise, make sure to ask for clarification before you continue.
