Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.

Chiropractic Carrollwood FL lower back adjustment

The most common therapeutic procedure performed by chiropractic physicians in Carrollwood is known as a chiropractic adjustment or manipulation. Chiropractic is a primary health care profession which diagnoses and treats mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system with the intention of affecting the nervous system and improving overall health. It is based on the premise that a joint dysfunction can interfere with the normal function of muscles, nerves, joints and tissues and may result in many different conditions of diminished health. Treatments typically include spinal and joint adjustments to correct the joint motion.

Chiropractic Physicians have broad diagnostic skills and may assess patients through clinical examination, laboratory testing, imaging and other interventions to determine when chiropractic treatment is appropriate. Chiropractors will readily refer patients to the appropriate health care provider when chiropractic care is not suitable for the patient’s condition, or the condition warrants co-management with other members of the health care team.

Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuro-musculoskeletal complaints, but is no longer limited to only neck and back pain in Carrollwood. There are a number of conditions that respond favorably to chiropractic care including:

The Chiropractic Adjustment
The purpose of manipulation at Oleston Chiropractic is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become restricted in their movement as a result of a tissue injury. Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal posture for an extended period of time. In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function for the patient. Adjustment of the affected joint and tissues restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal.

More than One Way
There are several styles of adjusting within the chiropractic profession and this can be confusing sometimes to someone new to the chiropractic experience. Generally, there are 3 different ways to adjust the spine including using a hands-on approach, using a specifically designed table, or using a specifically designed instrument to assist in the adjustment process. At Oleston Chiropractic, we use a combination of all 3 different ways to adjust the spine and rest assured we will use the appropriate style for you.

For You and Everyone You Know
Elderly, teenagers, newborns, pregnant woman, and even people that have had back, neck or hip surgery are safe to adjust. We evaluate every individual and treat every person with care that is specific to them. You are more than just a number on a chart at Oleston Chiropractic in Carrollwood.
