Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is most often used to treat back pain, neck pain, headaches, shoulder pain and associated symptoms of the arms and legs, which are known as neuromusculoskeletal complaints. It’s a drug-free, hands-on approach to healthcare that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment.

The majority of pain in the back and neck is associated with bodily mechanical dysfunction rather than arthritis or disc disease. However, patients with arthritis or disc disease may be more susceptible to bodily mechanical stress which can make them more likely to have inflammation and pain. Relieving these stresses through chiropractic care promotes healing and pain relief.

What to Expect

During your visit to our PIH Health chiropractor, we ask for your complete health history. You also receive an examination to help determine the cause of your condition. As part of the exam, we will look closely at your body mechanics for any obvious mechanical abnormalities.

When we have all the information, we’ll provide you with a report of findings and outline treatment recommendations for your specific condition.

Services & Treatments

The goal of chiropractic care is to help restore proper body mechanics and proper movement in your neck, back or joints with the goal of relieving your symptoms as quickly as possible, with the added goal of providing you with long term improvement. Treatment  generally consists of (depending on the patient’s condition and diagnosis):

  • Spinal manipulation (adjustment), generally performed in a mild fashion that is specifically tailored to each patient’s condition, age and physical capabilities. Gentle, minimal force techniques can be performed as determined by the treating chiropractor.
  • Heat or ice and other modalities to aid in the overall treatment process.
  • Exercises to help relieve your symptoms and restore proper body mechanics and provide you with long term relief.
  • Information regarding your condition, which will include health related education specific to your needs. (For your safety, we use chiropractic techniques approved by the state of California.)
