Chiropractic care offers many benefits. These benefits include treating common issues, including headaches, back pain, and muscle tension. We offer state-of-the-art chiropractic treatment at Colony Chiropractic in The Villages, FL.
Conditions Treated by Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care can treat a wide variety of issues. Joint pain or dysfunction can cause pain in the back, neck, and shoulders. Spinal misalignment can also lead to sciatica.
Other conditions treated by chiropractic care include arthritis, headaches, muscle pain, and muscle and joint injuries.
Chiropractors typically focus on spinal adjustment and alignment. However, they can also realign any joint within the body, including knees, wrists, and elbows.
Chiropractic care begins with diagnosing any musculoskeletal issues. Our chiropractor will begin with a thorough medical history. They will speak to you about your lifestyle, and any concerns you have or symptoms you are experiencing.
A physical exam is also performed. X-rays or other diagnostic tests may also be needed.
We also use Pulstar in the diagnostic process. This device uses Piezoelectric Sensors, along with a sophisticated computer program, to check the function of each vertebra or joint. The information is presented in a graph that is viewed by the chiropractor and the patient.
Spinal adjustments are the core of chiropractic treatment. These adjustments correct any misalignments, which restore joint function and balance within the body.
In addition to manual adjustments, our skilled chiropractor can use the Pulstar for adjustments. Once misalignments are identified during diagnosis, the Pulstar can provide precise thrusts, which are controlled by the computer program.
After adjustments are made, the Pulstar is used to verify the results of treatment, which can then be viewed via a new graph.
Pain and Injury Prevention
Chiropractic care can prevent future problems, as well as relieve current symptoms of misalignment.
Misalignment is a common cause of pain and injury. When the body is out of alignment, it doesn't function correctly. Chiropractic adjustments restore alignment within the body, which reduces the chances of injuries and pain.
Along with spinal adjustment, your chiropractor may recommend therapeutic exercises. They will teach you exercises to help improve your body strength and function, based on your unique needs and concerns.
These exercises can help your body heal from injury, help maintain proper alignment, improve flexibility and function, and strengthen weak areas of the body.
