When You Should Consider a Seeing Chiropractor

When your body’s in pain, it’s telling you that it’s time to seek treatment and diagnosis of your symptoms. Options include physical medicine, chiropractic care, and massage therapy. How do you determine what the best course of action is?

If you’re favouring an all-natural approach to treatment and recovery, you might consider a chiropractic adjustment. It facilitates healing in regards to your body’s nervous system.

Pain affecting hard tissue like the spine and joints, and soft tissue including muscles and ligaments, is bound to happen to everyone at some point in life. Limited range of motion can result from tissue damage, and both chiropractic and massage can restore the body’s mobility. There is often a dilemma between choosing a massage or chiropractic care to treat pain. Both methods share a similar philosophy – treatment that is drug-free as well as hands on. When deciding your course of treatment, consider the severity of the pain when making your choice.

Chiropractic care specifically addresses the disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Unlike massage therapy referenced earlier, chiropractic care focuses on the hard tissue; the spine and joints. Chiropractors are trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises and might even use massage in their course of treatment. A spinal manipulation or adjustment is the most common technique employed to treat issues like back pain or neck pain. Other issues that can be treated effectively with chiropractic care include joint pain, headaches, ear infections, tendonitis, insomnia and tension. Chiropractors are authorized to make medical diagnoses and order x-rays or blood work. An initial patient evaluation assesses the patient’s entire wellness to determine issue and treatment.

Appreciating the process of restoring and maintaining health is fundamental. Only so much can be achieved in a single chiropractic care appointment. You may notice significant change after the first adjustment, or it may take weeks to notice any dramatic change, or it could be somewhere in between. Results can take time. A specific care plan will detail the commitment needed for optimal health and should be followed as outlined by your health care provider.

I don’t leave reviews often, but Paul Turner was recommended to me for my shoulder. I haven’t been able to lift it for almost a year, and after just one treatment I could immediately raise it with a slight stiffness. Paul has told me the techniques to do at home and 2 weeks in I am still able to move it well. I highly recommend Paul!

For years with a shoulder injury I was not able to have full range of motion, lots of impingement pain. After visiting the office I have nearly all my range of motion recovered and maintenance helps me to continue to function daily with less pain. Very grateful to the team at Three Peaks, highly recommend them for both chronic and acute injuries and pain.

I’ve been working with Jessie Deutch on my recovery following a car accident, and she’s always been personable and professional. I have a highly demanding physical lifestyle and she’s helped tailor my recovery plan to make sure I can get back to my normal life as quickly and efficiently as possible. The rest of the staff has always been awesome to deal with as well. If you’re looking for a great place to get you back in action, look no further.
