Chiropractic Care Q&A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care is a hands-on approach to health care that focuses on spinal alignment. When your spine is aligned with the rest of your body, you’re less likely to experience chronic aches and pains. 

Musculoskeletal pain affects nearly every aspect of your health. It can result in headaches, poor flexibility, and even mobility loss. Chiropractic care uses nonsurgical techniques to restore your spinal alignment and relieve pain.

What can chiropractic care treat?

Chiropractic care is an effective tool to help relieve the uncomfortable symptoms of:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Chronic headaches
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Sciatica
  • Whiplash
  • Herniated disc
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Sports injuries

If you’re experiencing acute or chronic pain after an auto accident, chiropractic care can help accelerate your recovery. 

The team at North Andover Chiropractic also performs therapeutic chiropractic techniques for patients experiencing high levels of stress, as stress-related tension can build up in your neck and back.

What are the most common chiropractic care techniques?

North Andover Chiropractic offers a number of chiropractic care treatments, including:

Physical therapy

Physical therapy promotes healthy function in your musculoskeletal system through therapeutic exercise and stretches. It can help you recover after a sports injury or auto accident, while reducing your chance of reinjury.

Massage therapy

Massage therapy is one of the most effective chiropractic techniques to relieve muscle and soft tissue pain. This hands-on technique involves applying targeted pressure to your areas of pain to relieve tension and improve blood circulation for a healthy recovery.

Chiropractic adjustment

During a chiropractic adjustment, the team applies controlled pressure to a specific area of your spine to shift it into proper alignment with the rest of your body.

Nutrition counseling

Proper nutrition is essential for a healthy recovery from musculoskeletal pain. The team can help create a dietary plan that aims to improve your muscle and joint function.

Flexion distraction

Flexion distraction is a chiropractic technique that relieves pressure from herniated or bulging discs in your spine. During the treatment, you lay on a motorized table that gently stretches on maneuvers your spine, allowing your damaged discs to heal.

Cold laser therapy

Cold laser therapy uses low levels of light to relieve pain and inflammation in your injured joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other soft tissues.
