Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic does a fantastic job of alleviating pain, improving range of motion, relieving stress and so much more. People of all ages can experience vibrant health with this form of natural care. But are there times when you should avoid seeing a chiropractor?

As with any type of healthcare, chiropractic has its own contraindications. While it offers numerous benefits and can be a crucial part of an integrated approach to health and wellness, certain conditions or circumstances may limit its use.

When Adjustments Are Not Recommended

Certain physical conditions can make chiropractic adjustments unsuitable. For instance, a broken vertebra requires careful handling, making chiropractic adjustments inappropriate. Similarly, if a patient recently underwent spinal surgery and the area is still unstable or not fully healed, chiropractors would refrain from adjusting that area.

However, once the surgical site has properly healed and stabilized, chiropractic care can resume. Chiropractic treatments can help the area regain a more normal juxtaposition, enhancing stability in the long run.

In terms of neurological conditions, chiropractic care should be approached with caution. If a patient has had a stroke or exhibits symptoms consistent with a stroke, standard chiropractic care may not be suitable.

Alternative Available Therapies

If someone is not able to receive chiropractic care there are other therapies at Brown Chiropractic Center that can help heal and expedite recovery. Our range of therapy modalities include:

These therapies can work on the muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves of injured areas, helping them heal faster, reducing swelling, and managing pain. They provide additional pathways for patients to gain relief and promote healing, even when traditional chiropractic adjustments are not feasible.
