Frequently Asked Questions
Yes. Chiropractic care can be very beneficial when it comes to improving the function of an arthritic joint. However, manipulations much match the type of arthritis the patient has. For example, osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that affects over 25 million Americans. It’s the result of deteriorating cartilage. And, while osteoarthritis can be found in any joint, it’s primarily found in weight-bearing joints such as the spine, hips, and knees. Spinal manipulations can help relieve pressure in these arthritic joints and improve mobility.
On the other hand, rheumatoid arthritis or RA is an autoimmune disease with inflammation. The inflammation and swelling can make joint movement painful. Chiropractors should use chiropractic techniques that won’t worsen the situation.
Many chiropractors are more affordable than people realize. Chiropractic adjustments are often less expensive than typical medical treatment. This is largely due to the fact that a Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine focuses on treating the cause of the problem rather than just the symptoms. This will save money on:
- Ongoing use of prescription drugs
- Frequent medical visits
Research studies show evidence that chiropractic manipulations are also more effective when it comes to relieving pain in the joints, neck, and back than other options.
The specific cost of chiropractic therapies depends on each unique case including how quickly your body responds to therapy and rehabilitative exercises, what services you need, and how many visits treatment will require. To get a better understanding of the cost, speak with your insurance company to see what therapies are covered and speak with your chiropractor.
Chiropractic treatment is about treating the patients rather than just treating the symptoms. Prescribing addictive pain medications may make your pain go away, but it doesn’t fix the cause of the pain. Many people don’t realize just how intricate your spine and nervous system are. If your spine is out of alignment, then your muscles will attempt to find balance and you may have pressure on different nerves. A chiropractic adjustment realigns your spine to reduce or eliminate pressure on those pinched nerves and stops your muscles from trying to overcompensate for the misalignment. Ligaments and joints will also function better as will your digestive system.
In addition to spinal manipulation, chiropractic therapy often incorporates other alternative medicine including:
- Physical Therapy
- Massage Therapy
- Heat Therapy
- Cool Treatments
- Electrical Stimulation
Our chiropractor has the training and experience to relieve pain associated with a variety of conditions including but not limited to:
- Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Hip Pain

- Myofascial Pain

Our chiropractors care about pain management and want to help you with everything from chiropractic treatments for acute back pain to physical therapy.
How chiropractic care can help in sports medicine
Chiropractic care is also an important part of sports medicine. Physical sports are rough on the body and a lot of lower back pain, joint pain, and muscle spasms are the result of overuse. When muscles are pushed to the edge then they can become fatigued and open up your body for injury. Chiropractic care ensures your spine is in alignment to increase range of motion, and reduce pain and inflammation in soft tissues and joints, all while working together to prevent injury.
How chiropractic care can help with headaches
Many headache pain causes originate in the neck, even though we may not realize it. Some of the chiropractic care benefits our patients experience include a reduction in both migraines and tension headaches. Improving spinal function in the neck alleviates stress on the nervous system and allows your body to function as it should. This helps reduce the risk of stress and tension that build and become a headache.
Chiropractic care and weight loss
A lot of people ask, “Does chiropractic care help with weight loss?” The answer is yes, but maybe not in the way that you think. Chiropractic care weight loss is about more than just getting an adjustment once in a while and shedding pounds. Chiropractors do more than just chiropractic manipulation. They treat the body as a whole.
Many chiropractors in the United States understand that one of the biggest challenges about weight gain is a decrease in metabolism. However, when your spine is in proper alignment then your nervous system operates more effectively. This in turn makes it easier for your brain to communicate with the rest of your body. This means it can be easier to increase your metabolism. In addition, your digestive system will work better as well. And the reduction or elimination of pain in your back, neck, and extremities will make activity more comfortable. You’ll also be able to sleep better if you’re not in pain. All of these things combined can help with weight loss.
It’s also not uncommon for chiropractors to offer nutritional counseling to those who are interested. When it comes to diet and nutrition they will commonly recommend what is known as the anti-inflammatory diet which encourages your body to burn fat instead of carbohydrates for energy. This, combined with rehabilitative exercises and you’re well on your way to losing weight.
