Low Back Pain / Chiropractic Care Q & A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care is an approach to medicine that involves the gentle manipulation of your joints, muscles, and other tissues. Perhaps the most common chiropractic treatment is chiropractic adjustment, which improves your alignment to relieve pain and improve mobility.

What are the benefits of chiropractic care?

Some of the benefits of chiropractic care include:

Studies have shown that chiropractic care can effectively relieve pain for many patients. Chiropractic care also improves the mobility and stability of joints so patients can enjoy better overall function.

Chiropractic care doesn’t require needles, anesthesia, or medication. There may be a little soreness after some treatments, but you won’t need weeks to heal from the cure as you do with surgical procedures and no scars, too.

When performed by a qualified provider like Dr. Craig, chiropractic services are unlikely to cause side effects or serious complications.

Dr. Craig can use chiropractic care to treat a wide range of conditions, from arthritis to injuries. Chiropractic care is also compatible with most other treatment options.

When is chiropractic care appropriate?

Chiropractic care can be beneficial for patients with many different problems. You may be a good candidate for chiropractic care if:

  • You have an injury
  • You suffer from chronic pain
  • You have arthritis or another chronic condition
  • You want to improve your overall physical function

If you aren’t sure whether chiropractic care is right for you, ask Dr. Craig for guidance. He’ll be happy to perform an exam, review your medical history, and help you decide on the best treatment plan for your needs.

Is chiropractic care safe?

Chiropractic care is considered generally safe for most people. The risks associated with this type of care are very low, and serious complications are rare. However, chiropractic care may not be safe for everyone. For example, if you have broken bones, Dr. Craig may advise against chiropractic care.

How long does it take to see results?

Many patients report that their symptoms improve quickly after beginning chiropractic care. However, it may take time for you to see the full results of treatment. Talk to Dr. Craig to find out how often you should visit the office and how long it could take to see complete results.
