Understanding what chiropractic care is If you are new to chiropractic care but want to learn a few things before you ever visit a chiropractic New Brighton facility, you will be happy to know that we have taken a few of the basic questions that people have asked before and tried to answer them as best we can. We have personally found that people often feel far more comfortable if they know what they might experience. What is chiropractic care exactly? So what does it mean when you visit a doctor of chiropractic in ST Paul MN? These healthcare professionals interact with the nervous system, the spine, and the surrounding muscles. They are in fact doctors. While they are not medical doctors, they undergo just as much schooling. Remember that the healthcare profession has some of the most stringent educational requirements. What types of pain can they treat? It is normal to want to know what type of pain you can expect to have treated at chiropractic New Brighton facility. Chiropractors are capable of treating patients who have headaches, neck pain, back pain, and other disorders and injuries that involve the joints, ligaments, and muscles. Because our body structure affects our overall function, the benefits of chiropractic also extend to general health issues. What is an adjustment exactly? A chiropractic adjustment means that the chiropractic professional uses specific force in a precise direction. This is done to help a joint that is not moving properly or is ‘locked up’. The purpose of this natural and safe procedure is to improve overall health, improve spinal function, and eliminate interference in our body’s nervous system. It is important to realize that these manipulations are a highly controlled procedure. Because of that, they rarely if ever cause discomfort. Your chiropractor will use gentle pressure and minimal force. After the treatment, most patients will feel instant relief. Those who are just starting out with a chiropractic care program may notice that they have increased pain after an adjustment or initial soreness. This is not unlike someone starting a new workout program. What is with the popping sound? You may have heard from others that when a chiropractor makes adjustments, you hear these ‘popping noises’. Those are joints releasing tiny air pockets. It is important to remember that a chiropractic adjustment is not going to do anything to bones on either side of our joints. It only directly affects the connective tissue that is responsible for holding that joint together. In short, it is a natural sound and nothing to be afraid of.
