Different Types of Chiropractic Care

Different Types of Chiropractic Care

When I speak with patients of mine in my chiropractic office in Cedar Park TX, I often hear a lot of different questions about chiropractic care.  So what I wanted to do was hopefully give you a better understanding of the different types of chiropractic care that may be available to you and how you may then choose the best office for your needs.

First before I jump into the different types of chiropractic care, I first want to be clear what chiropractic care is.  Chiropractic care is the focus and specialized training to locate problems in the spinal joints and how that effects the nerves, muscles and ligaments.  Chiropractic care focuses on correcting those spinal problems by making adjustments to the problematic areas of the spine to help promote healing of the area.

Let’s talk about the different types of Chiropractic care.

  • Pain Relief Care
  • Corrective Care
  • Maintenance/Wellness Care

Pain Relief

This type of chiropractic care is focused on relieving the patients symptoms such as back pain, neck pain or headaches as quickly as possible.  This type of care tends to be shorter in its effect and more of a band aid type approach to care.  These offices will often not do a thorough exam or any advanced imaging of your spine to find the extent of the injury.  These types of patients will have more flare ups than with other types of care because the care takes enough pressure off the problematic area to allow the body to heal and get out of the crisis or symptom level but doesn’t address correcting the underlying cause of the problem to as close to 100% as possible.

Corrective Care

The goal of this type of chiropractic care is to detect the underlying cause of the problem you currently are having.  This type of care will egin with the Doctor performing a thorough consultation to understand your problem and problems in your past that may contribute to your problem.  This type of chiropractic care will also involve a detailed examination along with imaging of your spine to be able to understand the full extent of the problem and to be able to see the whole picture.  Once the Doctor understand the extent of the problem, a care plan may be created to help correct the underlying problem to as close to 100% as possible.  This type of care will yield much longer results than the pain focused only approach.

Maintenance/Wellness Care

This type of care is to maintain your spine in it’s current situation.  Some chiropractic offices only focus on Wellness care.  They problem with being Wellness only focused is that the care will be insufficient to treat or correct any spinal problems that you currently have.  If you are injured or are dealing with a spinal problem, you will want to make sure you see a corrective care office.  Once you have gone through care and have corrected your problem to as close to 100% as possible then it is a great idea to follow a maintenance plan to make sure you keep your spine healthy and not allow it it to become problematic again.
