What conditions do chiropractors treat?
Chiropractors treat patients of all ages with a variety of health ailments. Chiropractors are known for their expertise in treating back and neck pain. As a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP), Dr. Felix is also well versed in treating rotator cuff injuries, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, ankle sprains, plantar fascitis, and TMJ.
What type of treatment will be provided?
Chiropractic care is a natural, hands-on therapy that does not utilize drugs or surgery. We also use a number of modalities including heat/ice, electric muscle stimulation, kinesio-taping, therabands, stretching and exercise.
How often will I need treatment?
Every patient receives a comprehensive evaluation and an individualized treatment plan is created for them. Treatment length and frequency will vary depending on the severity of the injury along with other factors such as a person’s general health status, stress, how long they have had this condition, lifestyle factors, and treatment compliance. The goal is to get you back to health in the most efficient manner possible.
When I start treatment will I have to go forever?
No. The number of visits you make to your chiropractor depends on the nature of your condition and your personal goals. Once you have reached the goals that have been established at your first visit, you will be discharged from active care. Many patients choose to receive periodic follow-up treatment as part of their overall health and wellness lifestyle.
Can I receive chiropractic care if I have had back or neck surgery?
Yes. Many patients continue to benefit from chiropractic care even after surgery. Areas above or below a surgically repaired region can be effectively treated and this may even help take stress off of this area allowing it to heal more efficiently.
Is it ok to see a chiropractor if I’m pregnant?
Yes. Pregnant women find that chiropractic treatment will relieve the back and hip pain often associated with pregnancy. Treatment methods will vary as a woman gets further along in her pregnancy.
