The Benefits of Full-Body Chiropractic Adjustments

chiropractic adjustingFull-body chiropractic treatment encompasses the entire human body, including joints in the neck, upper back, mid-back, lower back, hips, and extremities such as arms, wrists, elbows, shoulders, legs, ankles, and knees. As a chiropractor, Dr. Brown can address any joint that is experiencing issues and align it properly to prevent pain and future arthritic conditions.

For example, a tennis player with medial or lateral epicondylitis, commonly known as tennis elbow, can seek chiropractic treatment.

Similarly, individuals with knee issues resulting from injury or physical activities like running, weightlifting, cycling, or swimming can benefit from chiropractic care to ensure proper functioning of the knee joints.

Chiropractic treatment also extends to the vertebral joints in the spine, starting from the top with the atlas and the axis (C1 and C2) in the cervical spine. Problems in this area can cause headaches, dizziness, loss of balance, neck pain, and even issues with nerves that extend into the arm and hand.

Likewise, issues with the lower lumbar vertebrae and hip joints, including the trochanter where the femur head connects to the hip, can result in low back or hip discomfort. In some cases, these issues can radiate down the legs, causing excruciating pain commonly referred to as sciatica or sciatic neuralgia.

The Importance of Getting Care

Full-body chiropractic treatment recognizes that every joint in the body can experience issues and improper functioning, leading to pain, discomfort, motor dysfunction, or loss of muscle control. Addressing joint problems early on can prevent further complications, such as degeneration processes and arthritic conditions.

Taking care of these joints through chiropractic treatment can provide relief, promote proper alignment, and prevent future issues. By addressing the underlying cause of pain or discomfort, individuals can enjoy improved overall well-being and maintain optimal joint health.

What to Expect

Consultation and exam

The first step is a consultation where the patient can explain what’s happened,
what symptoms they’re experiencing, where the issue is, and if anything started the problem. Next, Dr. Brown performs a thorough physical examination, including orthopedic, neurological, and chiropractic testing.

He does so to get an idea of exactly where the problem is and what the issues seem to be. If he determines that some diagnostic imaging, such as an X-ray, is needed, we can do that in the office.

Treatment protocol

The results of the exams and imaging provide Dr. Brown with enough information to share with the patient. He’ll explain the issue and give them the best protocol for fixing it, hopefully in our practice, as that’s the healthiest and quickest way to address it. It’s important to understand that our treatment focuses on fixing the joint problem, not just providing a bandage solution.

If the patient decides to proceed, Dr. Brown will provide care until he sees that the issue is stable and functioning as it should. He also offers rehabilitative exercises that the patient can do at home to strengthen that area and keep it from becoming an issue.

In addition to chiropractic and exercises, we offer a complete physical therapy facility that works on all the soft tissue around the joints. Our modalities include ultrasound, high-voltage galvanism, cold laser therapy, and cervical, thoracic, and lumbar traction.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many sessions of care are needed?

It depends on many factors, including fitness, age, and injury severity, but our whole protocol is designed to get the joint corrected as quickly as possible. The entire process can be anywhere from one adjustment to weeks of adjusting, but we never waste a patient’s time or money if they’re not responding well to the chiropractic treatment.

Do you ever refer out to another provider?

Sometimes it’s necessary for a patient to speak with either a neurologist, neurosurgeon, or orthopedic surgeon to address other issues that can’t be taken care of with chiropractic care.

Help for Auto Accident Injuries

Whether you were involved in a low-speed fender bender or higher-speed collision, the forces of an impact are absorbed by the body. We’re not designed to withstand these powerful forces. That’s why it’s critical to get examined by a chiropractor as soon as possible. Full-body chiropractic care offers relief from whiplash, neck and shoulder pain, lower back pain, and headaches that can arise due to the impact of a car crash.

Dr. Brown has decades of experience helping auto accident victims recover from pain and injuries. Call our practice today to schedule a consultation.
