Chiropractors help you heal naturally without the use of prescription pain medication. When you are having a hard time standing up straight, or you have pain in your lower back, it may be time to see how a chiropractor can help you feel better. You will go through a careful assessment to figure out what is going on with your back, and then you will receive treatment to reduce inflammation, restore the alignment of your spine, and improve the function of your muscles. Treatment can include spinal adjustments, traction strategies, manual therapy, ultrasound treatment, and more to improve your pain and increase your range of motion.
Ultrasound Therapy and Chiropractic Services
When you see a chiropractor for muscle pain and stiffness, ultrasound treatment therapy is commonly used to help your tissue heal. Your chiropractor will use an ultrasound machine, and, when applied, you may feel a little warmth. Most people don't feel much as the ultrasound is being done, but it is sending sound waves into your tissue to stimulate healing. Your chiropractor may use ultrasound for a few minutes on a targeted area to improve blood flow to the area.
Spinal Alignment and Pain Management
Chiropractic treatment works to improve the alignment of your spine, reducing the pressure on your spinal nerves. When your spine is out of alignment, it creates pain and stiffness. You may have a hard time walking, turning your neck, or twisting your body. Once your spine is in alignment through careful spinal adjustments, your muscles and ligaments are able to support your body as they are supposed to. Over time, adjustments teach your body to be in the correct position, and you will begin to hold this position more naturally as you heal.
How Often You Should See a Chiropractor
During the acute phase of your treatment, you will be scheduled to see your chiropractor several times each week. You will benefit from more frequent treatment in the early stages of recovery and you will have less pain and stiffness after treatment. Once you are healing, you may start seeing the chiropractor once per week. Eventually, you will go on a maintenance plan and see your chiropractor for monthly check-in visits, to make sure you are still feeling well.
When you are in pain, a chiropractor may help you to heal. With adjustments to address spinal alignments and poor mobility, you will have the care you need to heal naturally.Share

Hi there, my name is Georgette Limerick. I am excited to share my knowledge about chiropractic procedures with you today. I was a softball player through middle school, high school and college. I often stood on the pitcher's mound and lobbed the ball over the plate. The constant movement of my shoulder pulled the ligaments and joint out of alignment. Eventually, I developed an immense amount of pain throughout my neck, back and shoulder. The pain even shot down my arm to my fingertips, making it difficult to work at an acceptable pace. I visited a chiropractor several times to see if some precise adjustments would help. After the third visit, I was convinced the procedures healed me. My site will explore the benefits of chiropractic procedures in detail. Thanks for coming by.
