From massage, physical therapy, nutrition, wellness, and rehabilitation, your Ocoee chiropractic search ends here.
Using hands-on spinal manipulation therapy, chiropractic care aims to enable your body to heal itself without surgery or medication. By undergoing a consultation with your DC, we’ll employ a number of diagnostic methods to ensure that we’re getting to the core root of the problem before doing any hands-on adjustments. These diagnoses can include reflex tests, strength tests, as well as digital X-Rays to determine bone structure.
What are chiropractic adjustments?
An adjustment is a hands-on manipulation that aims to realign your spine or joints for pain relief, quicker healing time, and to increase better posture, range of motion, and promote tension relief.
Your doctor of chiropractic will use their hands to apply a quick thrust to a joint or vertebra to fix subluxations – a misaligned bone or stuck joint.
What chiropractic care is not:
- The popping sounds from a Chiropractic treatment is not bones cracking or crushing against each other. The pop, called a cavitation, is actually an audible release of gas caused by opening your joints to release this trapped gas. Oxygen, nitrogen, and CO2 can build up within your joints and cause a stiffness that simply needs to be released so that you can get your range of motion back.
- Chiropractic care is not dangerous. Our professionals are trained in numerous areas of medicine and can guarantee that the best method of care is being administered to relieve your pain and get you back to your life. The adjustments themselves don’t hurt, and are even safe for children.
- Chiropractic is not a one-stop solution to your problems. Spinal manipulation therapy addresses the underlying problem that brought you to the chiropractor in the first place to ensure that your pain doesn’t reoccur.
