When most people think of visiting a chiropractor, they think of back pain. For many years, chiropractors mainly served those with back pain issues. Today, however, it is understood that chiropractic care is a wonderful preventative treatment to help maintain spinal health. At Millar Chiropractic - Huntsville AL (Downtown) in beautiful downtown Huntsville, Alabama, we are focused on helping patients not only find all-natural pain relief options but also learn how to obtain and maintain a healthy body.
Why Is Chiropractic Care Different?
Chiropractic care is all about holistic wellness. This means that treatments are focused on improving the body’s natural ability to heal itself. This differs greatly from mainstream medicine, which is highly focused on treating symptoms once they have started. Once symptoms have started, the body is already attempting to fight off disease and inflammation. A chiropractor can improve the function of your body to prevent pain and immobility from occurring in the first place. This can help you live a healthy life without medication.
What Can I Expect When I Visit the Chiropractor?
When you first visit our office, our chiropractor will evaluate your overall health and wellness. Your medical history will also be reviewed at this time. If you are experiencing pain issues, our chiropractor will discuss these with you. Our chiropractor may perform diagnostics to pinpoint the cause of your pain. After this, a treatment plan will be developed for you to address the pain. If you are not experiencing pain, our doctor will talk with you about your health goals. You will discuss your lifestyle and activity levels and a preventive treatment plan will be developed for you.
Very often, your treatment plan will begin with a spinal adjustment. This is a form of chiropractic treatment that uses strategically placed pressure along the spinal column. This treatment will bring the spine back into proper alignment. When the spine is properly aligned, blood, oxygen, and nutrients can flow more freely throughout the entire body. This will have an energizing effect. Over time, these spinal adjustments will reduce your pain, improve your mobility, and enhance your body’s natural healing process. Other types of treatment include massage therapy, hot/cold therapy, and traction. Nutritional and lifestyle counseling is also available to help you make healthier choices in life.
