Who Can Benefit From Chiropractic Treatment?

There’s a common misconception that the only people who may benefit from chiropractic care are people who suffer from specific medical conditions or those suffering from an injury. Our office is well-accustomed to treating car crash victims and patients with conditions like arthritis or sciatica. However, our chiropractors can treat patients dealing with a wide range of issues. For example, many office workers can benefit from chiropractic care as their jobs involve repetitive motions, and often it’s easy to begin practicing poor posture. Other situations that may call for chiropractic care are:

  • Athletes experiencing injuries or pain or who want to prevent injuries
  • Patients suffering from frequent headaches
  • Patients suffering from traumatic brain injuries
  • Injuries caused by an improper sleeping position
  • Prevent needing invasive surgeries (of course, patients should never use chiropractic care as a substitute for visiting their primary care provider)

Chiropractic care can also be a great way to change your lifestyle. Chiropractic care involves much more than a doctor making adjustments to your spine and calling it a day. Instead, chiropractic care often emphasizes a holistic approach. This approach means making adjustments to your lifestyle, including:

  • Adapting a healthier diet
  • Refraining from harmful activities like binge eating or drinking or smoking
  • Getting plenty of sleep
  • Learning deep-breathing exercises to lower stress


Is Chiropractic Care Safe?

People may hesitate to visit a PG County chiropractor because they believe it’s unsafe. However, chiropractic care is perfectly safe when done properly and administered by our professional team. Unlike other treatments, like many prescriptions, our goal is to discover and resolve the source of your pain versus treating its symptoms. Additionally, there’s a misconception that chiropractic care and physical therapy only happen after a major surgery. However, many patients can avoid needing surgeries through chiropractic care.


How Long Does the Process Take?

There’s also another misconception that chiropractic care involves spinal manipulation and sending a patient on their way. Unfortunately, this often isn’t the case. While some patients may only need one or two sessions, the truth is that chiropractic care often involves many sessions spread over a few weeks or months.

Upon your first visit, our chiropractic team aims to discover and set specific goals. The first session can take between 45 minutes to an hour or longer as we’ll need to review crucial information like your medical history. However, you can expect subsequent sessions to take 30 minutes or less after establishing a rhythm.
