Chiropractic Care Q & A

Sunny View Medical Center

What is involved in the chiropractic service?

Sunny View Medical Center offers a full-service chiropractic department that includes physical therapy and adjustments. The goal is to correct the alignment of the spine and improve your body’s functioning. Chiropractic care benefits patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain due to injury. It also helps those with acute pain from an injury that occurred during work, play, or in an automobile accident. The right treatment can fix the problem and eliminate the pain for good.

Who should consider getting chiropractic care?

Your doctor can help you decide if chiropractic care is the right choice for your medical problem. Most people can make use of this treatment option, though. Chronic pain is common whether you sit at a desk all day or spend your time on your feet.

Chiropractic care is often sought if:

  • You have chronic lower back pain
  • You have suffered a sport injury
  • You are recovering from an auto accident
  • You were hurt on the job either from an accident or from repetitive movement

What can you expect from chiropractic care at Sunny View Medical Center?

Sunny View Medical Center provides full-service chiropractic care with a certified chiropractic specialist. The service maintains an emphasis on diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the spine.

During the initial visit, the practitioner will do a physical exam that may include tests to aid in a diagnosis. The typical treatment involves manipulated and controlled force that realigns your spine. Afterward, the provider might recommend physical therapy, massage therapy and exercises to strengthen the affected areas and prevent further problems.

Is there any risk with chiropractic care?

Chiropractic adjustments are completely safe but they can’t treat every kind of pain. Your first step will be to set up an appointment with your regular doctor. Once the cause of your pain is determined, your primary care physician may recommend chiropractic care if it is a good treatment option for your condition.

Do chiropractic adjustments hurt?

Chiropractic adjustments shouldn’t hurt. In fact, it will probably feel good to have everything put back in proper alignment. You might feel some mild discomfort and soreness during and after your treatment. You may hear some alarming pops and creaks, as well, but that is all part of the process.
