What does a Chiropractor do?

With the seemingly unending snowfalls, and the tough shoveling that follows, this time of year often proves to be hard on our bodies.

Chiropractic care, a service offered at Coastal Sports and Wellness, can help alleviate these aches and pains, while also contributing to an overall improvement in your general health.

WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC MANIPULATION? Also known as adjustment, chiropractic manipulation is a manual procedure, typically done by a chiropractor’s hands, that applies a controlled low force to a spinal joint. According to the American Chiropractic Association, chiropractic care has existed since the beginning of recorded time with processes gaining momentum with each passing year.

WHO CAN CHIROPRACTIC MANIPULATION HELP? This form of chiropractic care can help those who are suffering from a wide range of conditions, including joint pain, strains, or sprains, headaches, whiplash, arthritis, poor posture, as well as many other neuromusculoskeletal problems. Chiropractic care can focus on low back, neck, hips, knees, shoulders, hands, elbows, feet, and more. It can be beneficial following a fall, car accident, traumatic life event, or an increase in both physical or mental stress.

WHAT IS THE OBJECTIVE OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE? A chiropractor’s goal is to help correct the patient’s musculoskeletal structural alignment and to restore their joints to a normal range of motion. Patients will feel a decreased in pain and increase in motion. Correcting these problems can also help have positive effects on a patient’s overall health. “After their first treatment, the most frequent comment I hear patients say is that they feel more mobile without pain or stiffness” said Dr. Emily Jang, Coastal Sports and Wellness’ chiropractor.
