So you’ve been referred to a chiropractor by a medical professional or recommended by a friend. Now you’re wondering, just what does a chiropractor do that will help me feel better? At the office of Springfield Chiropractic Clinic, we’ll explain how our holistic, hands-on approach to healing treats patients experiencing pain with an array of safe, drug-free, non-invasive therapies.
Before starting a practice, chiropractors undergo four to five years of rigorous education and testing that meets stringent standards. Licensed chiropractors are highly skilled doctors trained in treating many of the most common complaints and injuries including back pain, headaches, joint pain of the arms or legs, and neck pain. They take time to sit down with their patients and discuss their concerns and medical history before conducting a thorough examination and arriving at a diagnosis and treatment plan.
The role posture plays in our health is a focal point of our patient centered approach, helping you to understand that your body’s alignment is a key factor in causing or preventing pain and injuries. After careful observation, your chiropractor may employ spinal manipulation, commonly known as “an adjustment,” which uses a hands-on technique to restore movement to joints that have become restricted because of an injury or repetitive stress over time. And we’ll teach you how to keep your posture in proper alignment when you are sitting, standing and sleeping. Other gently applied manipulations can help relieve arthritis and inflammation in your arms and legs.
Chiropractic therapies can significantly reduce your likelihood of requiring surgery, and treat pain without the use of potentially addicting prescription drugs. Come in and meet the friendly chiropractors at Springfield Chiropractic Clinic, where you’ll receive personal attention and hands-on care. Call our office for an appointment today, and find out how good it feels when your body is in harmony from head to toe.
