Chiropractic physicians offer integrated health care to patients who request further treatment of problems involving the muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, cartilage and nervous system.
Chiropractic physicians can perform soft tissue therapies, prescribe corrective exercises, and provide manipulation of the spine or joints in an effort to help you avoid surgery and medication. Additionally, they may offer joint bracing or muscle taping for support or to improve overall function. Areas treated include neck or back pain, pelvic pain, arm pain (shoulder, elbow or wrist) and leg pain (hip, knee or ankle). Nutritional advice may also be offered for weight control to reduce joint pain and improve posture. You may benefit from the chiropractor’s “hands-on” approach to relieve chronic pain from old injuries or for acute pain from new injuries.
At the Center for Integrative Medicine, our chiropractic physicians consider the “whole patient” and not just the area that hurts. They receive extra training in exercise prescriptions, corrective exercises, advanced nutrition, and dietary and lifestyle intervention. Wellness chiropractic physicians are specially trained to incorporate chiropractic treatment into complex medical care, working with your primary care doctor and specialists.
At your chiropractic visit, you will be asked for your health history and will have a complete orthopaedic and neurologic exam, to assess the muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Based on this information an individualized treatment plan will be provided. Your chiropractic care will be coordinated with your primary care doctor and other specialists.
