Chiropractic Care

Dr. Danielle adjusting patientChiropractic care is the assessment of the spine and the extremities looking for dysfunction at each visit. Wherever Dr. Danielle finds the subluxation or dysfunction in the spine, she applies some sort of chiropractic adjustment whether it’s by hand or instrument. An adjustment creates better function in the joint, and stimulates the nervous system, getting things working at 100% so the brain and body can communicate.

If it’s applicable, she will do soft tissue manipulation that’s working out different adhesions and neuromuscular issues using an instrument and cupping.

Conditions That Chiropractic Helps

The following conditions respond well to chiropractic:

  • Back pain
  • Headaches
  • Menstrual cramps and PMS
  • Neck pain

Chiropractic also can boost immune system functioning and help improve athletic performance and decrease recovery time.

Techniques

In addition to using Diversified, a manual technique, Dr. Danielle also uses the ArthroStim® instrument for those who prefer a gentler approach and cupping which can help with people who are sensitive to other modalities.

Helping Patients Feel Comfortable

If you’ve never been adjusted before, you should know that adjusting the spine is the same thing as cracking your knuckles as far as the noise (change in pressure) and what it feels like. An adjustment is typically very comfortable and usually feels really good. Dr. Danielle respects her patients’ personal space she will never start with an adjustment that they’re not ready for. She provides constant communication throughout the adjustment process and will always do whatever is most comfortable for each patient.

What Will My Treatment Plan Look Like?

The length of acute care will depend on the injury and the person. It will be individualized anywhere from 2-3 times a week in the beginning until inflammation has decreased and your symptoms are managed. Once the symptoms are under control, you will begin receiving corrective care to try to get things back to where they should be.

Once your corrective care is finished and your results are maintained then your appointments will be spaced out even more: your visits will decrease from 2-3 times a week to once a week for anywhere from 4-8 weeks depending on the chronicity and your condition. Then your visits will drop to one time a week based on how you are doing. If you’re holding your adjustment longer, you can come in for wellness care, which could be once a month or once every two months.
