Q: What is chiropractic care?

A: A Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) uses their hands to adjust joints in the spine and other parts of the body. A chiropractic adjustment is a very safe, specific, controlled force applied to a joint to restore proper function and alignment. The chiropractic adjustment is intended to reduce pain, restore proper nervous system function, and improve mobility.

Q: What conditions can chiropractic care treat?

A: Chiropractic care can be used to conservatively treat pain and loss of function associated with the following conditions:

       

     • Acute and Chronic Neck, Mid back, Low Back, & Pelvic Pain
     • Musculoskeletal Sprain/Strains
     • Joint Dysfunction, Faulty Motion Patterns & Muscle Imbalance    
     • Disc Herniations
     • Sciatica/Leg Pain, Nerve Related Numbness & Tingling
     • Stenosis
     • Myofascial Pain Syndromes & Adhesions
     • Headache and Facial Pain
     • Temporal Mandibular Disorders (TMD/TMJ) 
     • Gait and Balance Disturbance
     • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
     • Upper and Lower Extremity Dysfunction & Pain
     • Impingement Syndromes
     • Tendonitis/Tendonosis
     • Plantar Fasciitis, Scar & Fibrotic Tissue

Q: If I’m not in pain, would I benefit from chiropractic care?

A: Of course! Chiropractic treatment aims to improve function by addressing the cause of dysfunction and not by treating symptoms. In addition to symptomatic relief, you can expect improved range of motion and greater tolerance for normal daily activity with chiropractic care. In the case of pregnancy, mothers can look forward to greater ease of movement during pregnancy and they may experience safer and more natural births due to enhanced nervous system function with chiropractic treatment.

Q: If I have had back surgery, can I be treated by a chiropractor?

A: Yes! We want you to experience your greatest function despite what your spine has been through. At Greensboro Rejuvenation we take the time to get your complete health history so we can design a safe and effective treatment unique to you.

Q: What is The Webster Technique?

A: The Webster Technique is a gentle and specific method of sacral adjustment, which improves pelvic alignment and removes interference to the nervous system of a pregnant mother. By creating balance of pelvic joints, muscles, ligaments, and tendons, there is reduction of undue tension on the woman’s uterus, which may allow the baby to get into the best possible position for birth.

Q: Can my child benefit from chiropractic care?

A: Absolutely. Birth can be a very traumatic process and may result in spinal misalignments that cause discomfort and altered behavior in babies. Chiropractic adjustment has been shown to improve sleep patterns and promote successful breastfeeding in babies and may improve various chronic conditions in older children. Children are very physically active and experience many types of falls and blows from activities of daily living as well as from participating in sports. Injuries such as these may cause many symptoms including back and neck pain, stiffness, soreness or discomfort. Chiropractic techniques can be altered to safely and effectively improve the health of children of all ages!

Q: What causes the sound during an adjustment?

A: Actually, not all adjustments produce a sound! Often, however, a chiropractic adjustment will produce a “pop” due to gas rushing in to fill the partial vacuum created when joints are partially separated. The sound is painless and does not determine the effectiveness of the adjustment.

Q: What type of education and training do chiropractors have?

A: Doctors of chiropractic are educated as primary-contact health care providers, with an emphasis on diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the musculoskeletal system (the muscles, ligaments and joints of the spine and extremities) and the nerves that supply them. Educational requirements for doctors of chiropractic are among the most stringent of any of the health care professions. The typical applicant for chiropractic college has already acquired nearly four years undergraduate college education, including courses in biology, inorganic and organic chemistry, physics, psychology and related lab work. Once accepted into an accredited chiropractic college, the requirements become even more demanding — four to five academic years of professional study are the standard. Doctors of chiropractic are educated in orthopedics, neurology, physiology, human anatomy, clinical diagnosis including laboratory procedures, diagnostic imaging, exercise, nutrition rehabilitation and more. Because chiropractic care includes highly skilled manipulation/adjusting techniques, a significant portion of time is spent in clinical technique training to master these important manipulative procedures. In total, the chiropractic college curriculum includes a minimum of 4,200 hours of classroom, laboratory and clinical experience
