During your first visit, the doctors will perform an initial exam and a chiropractic adjustment of the affected area. Their techniques include performing a soft tissue massage and trigger point therapy prior to the chiropractic manipulation. This practice relaxes the muscles around the joints and allows for a gentle, effective adjustment.
Because of the thorough exam and time spent reviewing your medical history, the first visit is usually 45 to 60 minutes. Regular follow-up visits are usually 15 to 30 minutes depending upon your treatment plan.
When a patient complains of pain or limited mobility, the doctor will check the spine and other joints for abnormal joint restrictions. These restrictions can cause pain and dysfunction as well as muscle spasm. The adjustment is a quick movement designed to restore normal mobility, realigning the spine thus increasing function and decreasing pain.
Every patient is different and every treatment is different. At Living Well Center for Integrative Health, we tailor the treatment to you and what your body needs. We offer equally effective “non-popping” and “non-twisting” adjustments as well as more traditional chiropractic treatments.
