Chiropractic Adjustments Q & A

How does a chiropractor treat back pain?

Most adults experience back pain at some point in their lives and a chiropractor can relieve your pain naturally. Dr. Skinner uses the latest techniques and chiropractic therapies to realign your spine and alleviate pressure that could be causing your back pain. Through gentle, manual adjustments, Dr. Skinner retrains your spine to return to its optimal position for function and relief from discomfort.

Through a comprehensive examination, Dr. Skinner determines the underlying cause of your back pain so he can apply gentle pressure to specific areas of your back, neck, shoulders, or hips to reposition the areas that are out of alignment. Your individualized, natural treatment plan can include any of the following therapies:

  • Manual muscle therapy
  • Corrective exercises and stretching
  • Physical therapy
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Spinal decompression
  • Trigger-point therapy
  • Lifestyle adjustments
  • Ultrasound
  • Kinesio® Taping

The treatment plan Dr. Skinner designs for you often includes multiple therapies so you can get long-term relief from back pain without depending on medications.

What can I expect during my chiropractic adjustment?

Some people have a misconception that chiropractors “pop” or “crack” your back during an adjustment, but nothing could be further from the truth. Dr. Skinner uses the most advanced techniques to provide gentle yet effective spinal adjustments.

During your appointment, you lie comfortably on a special table – similar to a massage table –  while Dr. Skinner carefully manipulates vertebrae in your spine that are subluxated – out of alignment with the rest of your spine. Subluxations lead to neurological disturbances in your spinal cord, leading to pain and other symptoms.

As these subluxations are corrected over time, you return to optimal function and reduced discomfort from either acute or chronic conditions. You should feel better after your chiropractic adjustment, not worse.

What conditions can a chiropractor treat?

You might be surprised to learn that in addition to back and neck pain chiropractors treat a variety of musculoskeletal and health conditions. Dr. Skinner can help you get relief from:

  • Migraines and other headaches
  • Neck pain
  • Pain between the shoulder blades
  • Lower back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Shoulder pain
  • Hip and knee pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Work injuries
  • Degenerative joint conditions
  • Whiplash and other injuries
  • Scoliosis
  • Sports injuries
  • Automobile Injuries

Since your spinal cord is at the center of your nervous system, correcting problems in your spine can reduce symptoms from a variety of musculoskeletal and other types of chronic diseases.
