What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care is a method of healthcare that involves realigning the vertebrae to ensure proper functioning of the central nervous system. Chiropractic care treats nearly all conditions by improving communication between the brain and the rest of the body. In doing so, the chiropractor helps the body heal itself and prevents future injuries.

What techniques do chiropractors use to treat patients?

At Dunwoody Chiropractic Center, we use a range of techniques, depending on the needs of the patient. In addition to spinal adjustment, some of the most common techniques we use include:

  • Massage therapy. Massage therapy is a technique we use to improve circulation, reduce patient anxiety and loosen tight muscles.
  • Physical therapy. Physical therapy helps patients recover through stretches and exercises.
  • Lifestyle advice. We help patients by teaching them to avoid behaviors that cause injury.
  • Nutrition counseling. We also help patients stay healthy through good diet and proper nutrition.
  • Postural screenings. Our postural screenings help patients improve their posture and avoid subluxations.

Who do chiropractors treat? Are chiropractors car injury doctors?

A chiropractor is a car accident injury doctor who helps patients involved in car accidents. Often, patients involved in car accidents will suffer from injuries like whiplash, herniated disc, muscle strains, concussions, stiff and sore muscles and more. Chiropractors use the techniques named above to restore full mobility and strength to the muscles after the accident occurs, and to encourage healing in the body.

In addition, chiropractors help patients suffering from conditions like fibromyalgia, sciatica, back pain, neck pain, whiplash, spinal stenosis and other musculoskeletal problems.

Is chiropractic care safe?

Yes. Chiropractic care is gentle, safe and effective for patients of all ages. All techniques are changed for the patient, so each patient receives individualized care based on their need. This helps ensure that chiropractic care is safe for the individual.

  • Muscle pain
  • Stiffness
  • Headaches
  • Joint pain
  • Limited mobility
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Tingling in the extremities

How many sessions does it take a chiropractor to treat an injury or illness?

The number of sessions it takes for a chiropractor to treat an injury or illness depends on the patient and the condition. In the first session, the chiropractor will make a diagnosis and develop a treatment plan tailored to the individual. The length of time it takes for the patient to recover from his or her injury will depend on the injury and the way the individual responds to treatment.
