We are adding to our range of minimally invasive treatments, interventional spine procedures, electrodiagnostic testing, regenerative joint therapies, myofascial injections, and more.
Redefine Healthcare can treat several conditions including injuries or illness involving the back, shoulders, neck, elbows, hips, ankles, and feet. Chiropractic services focus on manual manipulation of the spine to treat lower back pain. During a chiropractic adjustment, the practitioner identifies and manipulates the vertebrae that exhibit abnormal movement patterns or lack robust functionality. The goals include improving function, increasing the range of motion, and reducing pain.
A typical chiropractic adjustment involves a short-lever, high-velocity arm thrust applied to a vertebra; patients often notice an audible release of oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide. This releases pressure in the joint and brings about a sensation of relief. Occasionally, patients experience mild discomfort, but this discomfort lasts for only a brief time, and most patients are happy with the results of their treatment.
Sometimes, this release of gas from the joints does not occur; this can be the result of too much muscle tension or significant muscle splinting. In these cases, the chiropractor will often try other measures including ice, rest, or massage and electrical stimulation before performing the adjustment.
Chiropractic care incorporates many different manipulative techniques. This type of treatment requires that the practitioner be skilled and experienced; it is a blend of science and art, and it’s essential for the chiropractor to know when to apply adjustments and when not to for the best possible outcome.
Patients receiving chiropractic adjustments may notice some mild soreness or ache in the muscles or spinal joints. This side effect usually occurs within the first few hours after treatment and dissipates within 24 hours. Applying ice can minimize any discomfort quickly. Patients often report that after their chiropractic sessions, they experience less stress, an elevated mood, better posture, better sleep, and more.
