What Does a Chiropractor Do?
Chiropractors use a treatment system that helps to relieve pain for different parts of the body. By using a hands-on approach to adjust the musculoskeletal structure of the body, a chiropractor can place it into proper alignment, effectively healing the body.
With proper chiropractic care, individuals can oftentimes avoid surgery, reduce the number of medications prescribed and feel a significant reduction in pain. Chiropractors commonly treat the joints, bones, and muscles of the body, which ultimately positively impacts the ligaments and tendons. Additionally, previously limited levels of mobility can be restored, whether from tissue injury, sudden trauma, or injury due to repetitive movements.
The primary focus of a chiropractor is to bring natural healing and relief to patients by placing the body in proper alignment.
What Can I Expect During Treatment with a Chiropractor?
A visit to a chiropractic office is similar to that of a traditional medical office. When you arrive at Light Chiropractic, Dr. Kieu will listen to any specific symptoms or pain that you are experiencing. He will then perform a physical exam for purposes of diagnosis and to guide the treatment.
Dr. Kieu will ask you a series of questions to determine where the chiropractic therapy should be focused. Questions will be centered around the location of the pain, how severe the pain is on a scale of 0 to 10. An examination of the spine will then be conducted.
Chiropractic adjustments are always painless and very quick, regardless of where they take place on the body. You can expect rolling, twisting, and pushing on the affected areas. You might hear a popping sound, which is completely normal and means that any misalignment is being gently pushed back to its natural, normal position. Some patients report immediate relief following an adjustment, especially those receiving treatment for neck pain.
Chiropractic therapy is not painful. Many people feel nervous about their first appointment with a chiropractor, but then are relieved to find out that an adjustment does not elicit any pain at all. Some patients might experience a minimal level of soreness after an adjustment, but this is temporary and will go away after a short period of time.
What is Treated During Your Session
Many physical ailments and illnesses are treated during a chiropractic therapy session in Singapore that extends beyond just back pain and neck pain. Sore muscles, headaches, joint aches, and poor digestion are a few additional symptoms that can be addressed and treated during your chiropractic appointment.
