What should I expect when I seek chiropractic care in Richmond for my back pain?

The first thing we will need to do is go over your medical history. It’s important that we understand if you have any preexisting conditions or habits that could be responsible for your back problems. A physical examination is another component that will need to be performed to check your symptoms. Some diagnostic testing/imaging may also be required to make a final diagnosis.

Your treatment plan will most often involve some form of manual spinal adjustment. The purpose of this treatment is to apply controlled force to certain stiff or problematic joints to reduce pain and improve mobility and range of motion. Depending on the type and severity of your problems, we will discuss how many times you should come in for chiropractic adjustments.

For some patients, lifestyle changes such as nutritional counseling and rehab/exercise are also great ways to improve back pain, particularly if being overweight is causing your pain. The ultimate goal of chiropractic care is to restore your back to full function and to prevent further issues along the way.

What are the benefits of choosing chiropractic treatment?

Spinal manipulation is a safe and effective way to reduce problems like neck and back pain. Furthermore, conditions like osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia also respond well to certain chiropractic techniques. If these issues are what’s causing your back pain then you’re in luck!
