Chiropractor Q & A

What is a chiropractor?

A chiropractor is a type of health care professional that treats neuromuscular conditions by manually manipulating your spine. 

Their goal is to maximize your mobility while minimizing pain. Visits to your chiropractor can also help you avoid taking pain-relief medications. 

What chiropractic treatments can I get?

The chiropractic team at Wellness 1st Integrative Medical Center offers several chiropractic techniques to reduce pressure on your nerves. After assessing the degree and source of your pain, your chiropractor may perform:

Decompression therapy

You can get decompression therapy on your cervical spine (neck), your lumbar spine (lower back), or your knees. The goal of this treatment is to realign your joints by gently stretching them apart and sliding them back into place. It’s often effective for treating herniated or bulging discs in your back.

Cold laser therapy

Using the Erchonia® FX635, a low-energy laser, your chiropractor gently heats the tissues within your injured joints to promote faster healing.

Rehab exercises and stretches

Your chiropractor helps your joints heal and resume maximum function through guided rehab exercises and stretches. They flex and extend your muscles, encouraging them to move to their full ability without causing further injury.

When should I visit a chiropractor?

While many associate chiropractors with back pain, they can treat pain in many areas of your body by adjusting your spine. 

All the nerves in your body originate in your spinal cord, so structural issues with your spine can result in pain anywhere in your body. You might benefit from chiropractic treatment if you have:

  • Sciatica
  • Herniated discs
  • Neck pain
  • Headaches
  • Arthritic pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Overuse injuries
  • Injuries from car accidents


Your chiropractor may advise you on how to improve your posture and make other changes at home to help ease your pain. 

Does chiropractic treatment hurt?

Chiropractic treatment itself typically doesn’t hurt. The chiropractic team at Wellness 1st Integrative Medical Center takes a gentle approach to chiropractic manipulation to minimize discomfort, especially for patients who arrive at treatment in pain. 

Whether you’re suffering from pain and stiffness in your back or a specific joint injury, call the friendly and supportive staff at Wellness 1st Integrative Medical Center or book your chiropractic appointment online today.
