Chiropractic Care Q & A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care is a holistic healing approach to health care that incorporates several modalities to promote your body’s ability to heal itself. Depending on your diagnosis, your chiropractic care plan can include therapies to:

  • Promote blood flow
  • Improve your mental wellness
  • Realign your spine and joints
  • Relieve tired, aching muscles
  • Recover from sports training
  • Treat injuries, including auto accident injuries

You don’t have to be injured or in pain to get started on chiropractic care. This type of therapy can help you feel your best and can help you lower your risk of joint deterioration and injuries.

How can chiropractic care benefit me?

Los Altos Family Chiropractic provides customized chiropractic care plans to treat a wide variety of concerns. Your chiropractor can help if any of the following conditions are affecting you:

  • Sports injuries
  • Back or neck pain
  • Muscle pain or stiffness
  • Strains or sprains
  • Herniated disc
  • Nerve compression, including sciatica

Chiropractic care is also highly beneficial for pregnant women throughout every stage of pregnancy. Treatments can help with lower back pain, fetal positioning, morning sickness, and other pregnancy-related issues.

What can I expect during a chiropractic care session?

Los Altos Family Chiropractic proudly offers chiropractic services with a thorough examination to determine the cause of your condition. Your chiropractor performs a head-to-toe exam and looks at digital X-rays to evaluate your health and properly diagnose you.

After the diagnostic process, your chiropractor creates a customized chiropractic care plan for you. Every chiropractic session begins with soft tissue therapy before adjustments to facilitate your body’s healing processes.

Though each visit may vary slightly, some of the most common treatments include:

  • Acupuncture
  • Manual traction
  • Massage therapy
  • Cranial sacral therapy
  • Myofascial release
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Muscle release technique
  • Passive joint mobilization
  • Manual adjustments with the Thompson Technique (drop table technique)

You may also learn specialized stretches or strengthening exercises you can perform at home to improve mobility and promote healing between chiropractic sessions. Los Altos Family Chiropractic can even help you with nutritional counseling and dietary considerations that can enhance your health.
