A chiropractic treatment, or adjustment, involves applying controlled, sudden force to a joint. Your HD Health and Sport chiropractor may use their hands to directly adjust your joints, or they may use a small instrument to deliver a quick, gentle thrust.
Chiropractic focuses on restoring your natural alignment to promote health and optimize your body’s ability to heal itself. In addition to improving function in your musculoskeletal system, chiropractic treatments enhance communication in your nervous system. This creates an ideal environment for healing to occur in all areas of your body.
Most people seek chiropractic care to find relief from back pain, neck pain, and headaches. However, chiropractic adjustments can treat more than just problems with your spine. If you have muscle or joint pain anywhere in your body, it may be due to an imbalance or misalignment that chiropractic care can correct.
Chiropractic treatments can also help reduce stress and muscle tension and improve your sleep. Because Dr. Dehkordi and the team at HD Health and Sport take a holistic approach to health and wellness, they may recommend chiropractic treatments for your personalized injury care and prevention plan.
Your chiropractor at HD Health and Sport develops an individualized treatment plan based on your specific needs and activity level. In addition to spinal manipulation and joint adjustments, chiropractic treatment may include:
Chiropractic looks beyond your symptoms or injury and focuses on you as a whole person. Your chiropractor may identify weaknesses or imbalances in your normal posture and movement patterns and recommend exercises you can do at home to correct them.
Although every patient is unique, most people benefit from a series of 6-10 treatments over the course of a few weeks. Depending on your needs, you may continue to schedule follow-up chiropractic treatments for ongoing care.
