Chiropractic Care Q&A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care is a safe and effective nonsurgical therapy focused on treating conditions that affect the nervous and musculoskeletal system. The chiropractors at East Falls Chiropractic take a hands-on, drug-free approach to care to restore health and function and reduce pain. 

The team at East Falls Chiropractic takes a holistic approach to health, which means the focus is on your whole body, not just your pain. In addition to traditional chiropractic care, the team also provides nutrition and exercise recommendations to support the treatment you receive at the office. 

Am I a good candidate for chiropractic care?

Anyone can benefit from chiropractic care. While often sought for pain-related conditions, chiropractic care can support your general health and wellness. Proper alignment of your spine may help prevent future health problems and pain conditions. 

The team at East Falls Chiropractic also provides expert care for many neuromusculoskeletal conditions, including:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Headaches
  • Sciatica
  • Fibromyalgia

The experienced team also cares for women during pregnancy. Chiropractic treatments help relieve the aches and pains that occur with pregnancy, so you don’t have to take oral medication. Additionally, chiropractic care during pregnancy may prevent pelvic misalignment, which can cause birth defects, as well as improve your labor and delivery.

What are chiropractic care treatments?

East Falls Chiropractic is a full-service practice that uses several traditional and innovative techniques for chiropractic care. Some of the tools and techniques available include:

Manual manipulation

Manual manipulation refers to the hands-on approach to spinal adjustments that improve alignment and joint movement. 

ProAdjuster

ProAdjuster is an advanced diagnostic and treatment tool the team at East Falls Chiropractic uses to identify the underlying cause of your discomfort. The tool uses gentle oscillating movements to correct the problem.

Traction

During traction, also referred to as spinal decompression, your chiropractor gently stretches your spine, relieving pressure on the nerves and discs to reduce pain.

Flexion distraction

Flexion distraction is a chiropractic technique focused on the lower back that helps improve motion and relieve herniated discs. 

Activator technique

The activator technique involves using a special hand-held device that provides specific, but gentle, spinal adjustments.
