Chiropractic Care

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care, or spinal manipulation, is a holistic medical treatment the Premier Chiropractic and Sports Injury Center team use to apply sudden, controlled force to your spinal joints. The goal of treatment is to:

  • Improve spinal function
  • Correct spinal misalignment
  • Ease chronic neck, back, and joint pain
  • Improve posture
  • Relieve muscle tension and headaches
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Accelerate healing
  • Improve mobility and range of motion
  • Decrease symptoms of whiplash
  • Restore your overall quality of life

Your provider uses chiropractic care to treat injuries without invasive procedures, downtime, or addictive pain medicine. The team of practitioners at Premier Chiropractic and Sports Injury Center specialize in treating sports-related injuries in athletes, so they can resume training as quickly as possible.

What should I expect during my appointment?

Your provider will review your symptoms and medical history. They will examine you and may use lab or imaging tests, such as digital X-rays, to diagnose your condition and establish the most appropriate, personalized treatment plan for you.

During chiropractic adjustments, you lie down on a comfortable chiropractic table. Your provider applies targeted pressure to your joints, pushing them beyond a normal range of motion. You might hear cracking sounds while your provider realigns your spine and other joints.

After the procedure, you might experience fatigue, but you should notice improvements in chronic pain over time. Your provider may recommend a series of chiropractic adjustments to optimize your results. They might also utilize massage, rehabilitation exercises, custom orthotics, and regenerative medicine, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and mesenchymal stem cells, to treat sports-related injuries.

Am I a good candidate for chiropractic care?

Just about everybody benefits from chiropractic care. Your provider at Premier Chiropractic and Sports Injury Center lets you know if you’re a good candidate for it after a thorough consultation. It might not be right for you if you have severe osteoporosis, a high risk of stroke, cancer of your spine, or spinal bone abnormalities.

Premier Chiropractic and Sports Injury Center also offer medical weight loss, including innovative invisa-RED™ technology, to reduce stubborn body fat and take the extra stress off your spine and other joints.

Don’t let pain or limited mobility associated with a sports injury prevent you from staying active. Schedule an appointment with Premier Chiropractic and Sports Injury Center by phone or online today.
