What to Expect After Chiropractic Treatment

Ottawa Chiropractors often treat patients who suffer from neuromusculoskeletal problems, such as headaches, joint pain, neck pain, lower back pain and sciatica, though their scope of practice also covers those suffering from osteoarthritis, spinal disk conditions, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, sprains, and strains. Upon an initial visit, an Ottawa chiropractor will gather a patient’s full health history, perform a physical exam that places emphasis on the spine, and develop a comprehensive treatment plan.

The most common of all chiropractic treatments is the spinal adjustment. Using spinal manipulative therapy, an Ottawa chiropractor will use their hands to manipulate, massage, adjust, stimulate or mobilize the spine and its surrounding tissues. Chiropractic adjustments involve applying a swift and controlled force to the spine or other such area in order to increase its range and quality of motion; chiropractic adjustments are normally pain-free, and one can be sure that adjustments will reduce pain and restore or enhance joint function.

Although chiropractic care revolves mainly around spinal adjustment, Ottawa chiropractors have the training and expertise necessary to use various other treatments for the spine and other joints and tissues – like electrical stimulation, massage therapy, rehabilitative exercise, heat and ice therapy and more; and chiropractic treatment could also include counselling on disease prevention, proper nutrition, exercise and lifestyle changes.
