Depending on your condition, one of your options is seeing a chiropractor for your back pain.

To help you in your decision-making, we’ve compiled a list of the five common chiropractor-related questions. Read on to get your questions answered:

Common Chiropractor-Related Questions – Answered

1. Do I need a massage therapist or chiropractor?

However, it is essential to take note that the aim of massages is usually to provide a relaxing experience. This means that while you may feel rejuvenated for the next few days, your pain ailments may gradually return. Massages are preferred as a way to relieve stress, to calm you down after a stressful day.

On the other hand, chiropractors who specialise in spinal manipulation and adjustments can help alleviate your pain. Your chiropractor will treat your back pain and other conditions with care tailored to your individual needs from a health standpoint. There are various services with specific treatment purposes like Dry Needling Therapy to target the areas that are causing you discomfort. If you have been going for massages but it does not seem to be helping, consider a chiropractor to assess your situation.

2. What does a chiropractor do?

As some conditions like back pain mainly involve the nervous system and musculoskeletal system, chiropractors are trained to adjust/manipulate spine by delivering a specific and gentle force to remove any spinal misalignments. Some chiropractors are also trained to deliver other treatments such as Dry Needling and Radial Shockwave Therapy.

3. What can chiropractors help with?

A trusted chiropractor can treat back pain, neck pain and more while preventing further problems such as slip discs and spinal injuries. During the consultation, your visit may include visual posture checks, spinal palpation and range of motion exams as well as diagnostic procedures to pinpoint the actual cause of your complaints.

Depending on your individual needs, your chiropractor may evaluate your condition and suggest appropriate treatments for it. For example, your back pain may be a result of improper alignment. Your chiropractor will improve your spinal alignment, restoring mobility in your joints and treating the root of your pain in the process.

4. How often should you see a chiropractor?

The chiropractic treatments vary for different individuals and depending on your pain ailments, your chiropractor will then better advise you on the frequency of your visits.

5. What should I do after a chiropractic adjustment?

After your visit, it is vital to hydrate yourself and get sufficient rest. To promote post-chiropractic healing, make sure to refrain from any activity that may aggravate your condition. In order to prolong the effectiveness of the treatment, you may want to determine the cause of your back pain. Especially if you’ve never had a back injury before, it is not a good sign if you are suffering from a persistent strain on your back. In fact, what most people don’t realise is the effect of your seemingly innocuous habits, which can include staying hunched over your laptop with a poor posture and sticking to a poor sleeping position. By making some adjustments to your daily lifestyle, you can work towards an overall healthier well-being.

Besides back pain, there are other conditions that can worsen just from sitting down for a long period of time. For deskbound workers, make it a point to get up and stretch. Check out some of these lower back stretches that can help you, whether you are working from home or in the office:

1 year ago. Dr. Bryan came into AXA Insurance for a roadshow campaign. That’s how I met Dr. Bryan who helps to diagnose my neck pain issue.
After every adjustment, I could always feel much more relaxed and feeling much more rejuvenated. Neck is not as stiff as before.
Overall, feels very comfortable seeking treatment at equilibrio.
