Who is a chiropractor?
A chiropractor is a primary care health professional who specializes in taking a holistic approach to have you moving and feeling your best. Their focus is on the prevention, diagnosis, and comprehensive care of spine-related disorders and any other painful joint issues. Chiropractors will also work with you to maintain your range of motion, improve flexibility and overall wellbeing.
Chiropractors can use adjustments for restoring supports to the nervous system or joint function. At OAK Physio & Wellness, in addition to adjustments, our expert chiropractors also provide soft-tissue therapies, fitness coaching, lifestyle recommendation, and nutritional advice.
What is an adjustment?
An adjustment is a highly precise, skilled hand movement that is used by a chiropractor. It is usually for the adjustment of the joint of the body. The main functions of adjustment are to restore normal function to dysfunctional joints or other supporting structures of the body, or to relieve pain.
An adjustment is a safe method in which our highly trained chiropractors apply pressure to a specific joint to improve motion and function. You may hear a ‘popping’ sound which is the release of air when joint tissues are stretched during a chiropractic adjustment.
Immediately after an adjustment, most patients experience relief and improved flexibility and mobility. Adjustments are relatively pain-free in most cases. Some individuals may experience minor discomfort depending on the extent of the injury or condition. Our chiropractors will work with you to adjust their approach to treatment to ensure your comfort.
When should I consider chiropractic care?
There are several reasons why you should consider chiropractic care. Chiropractic care can be a key treatment option if you are experiencing neck pain, headache, or back pain as well as a variety of other conditions.
