Conditions We Treat With Hollywood Chiropractic Adjustments
Many think of chiropractic care as a complementary therapy for back and neck injuries. However, chiropractic adjustments can treat many concerns involving many parts of the body. Our team frequently prescribes treatment plans for patients living with:
- Back injuries
- Spinal injuries
- Carpal tunnel
- Herniated discs
- Muscle strains
- Neck injuries
We also address chronic pain conditions affecting the neck, back, shoulders, arms, hips, and other body parts. We can also help patients suffering from chronic headaches. When paired with our physiotherapy services, we can treat and rehabilitate many various musculoskeletal injuries.
Treatments Our Hollywood Chiropractic Team Serving Hollywood Prescribes
Every patient has a unique case that we need to fully understand before we can create a treatment plan. Our initial intake exam includes discussing your symptoms and taking imaging scans to determine the cause. Once we diagnose your condition, we can prescribe chiropractic adjustments to help. These treatments include:
Diversified adjustments are what many people think of when they picture chiropractic care. They can address issues anywhere along the spine by “popping” the vertebrae into place.
We also use related techniques known as seated diversified adjustments to address concerns with the neck or shoulders. The only difference is the patient sits up instead of lying down during these procedures.
While diversified adjustments are very effective, pain relief generally occurs over time. Multiple treatments are necessary to fully align the spine and keep the vertebrae in alignment.
Lumbar Side Posture Adjustments
The lumbar spine is the lower back. Treatment for pain and injuries in the lumbar spine requires a special side posture for adjustment. Our physicians place the patient on their side with their top leg bent during these treatments. This allows the chiropractor to properly manipulate vertebrae to realign them.
Thompson Drop-Table Technique
This special technique allows our chiropractors to adjust the full spine with minimal stress on the patient despite the force required from the physician. This technique uses a purpose-built Thompson Drop Table, which has seven segments that move independently of one another. This table holds the patient in the necessary position while the chiropractor manipulates the spine.
These adjustments address neck pain, headaches, and associated symptoms related to injuries to the cervical spine. During a knee-chest adjustment, the patient will kneel against the exam table. This allows the chiropractor to better adjust the cervical vertebrae in the neck and upper back.
Manual Extremities Manipulation
When patients have pain from musculoskeletal injuries, that pain is not always in their neck or back. Sometimes, our physicians need to manipulate other areas of the body to provide treatment or pain relief. Target areas could include the hips, knees, ankles, shoulders, elbows, or wrists.
These adjustments can treat many conditions that affect the hips or limbs, such as bursitis, carpal tunnel, and other nerve impingements. Our chiropractors often use these adjustments to help patients undergoing rehabilitation therapies with our physiotherapy team.
Sometimes, patients do not need significant adjustments or cannot withstand the force of such a major manipulation because of their overwhelming pain. When this occurs, toggle recoil is a consideration. This gentle technique calls for small, quick thrusts to the affected area.
Our physicians use an activator to perform some adjustments. This is often used instead of manual force during a diversified manipulation. The activator is a hand-held instrument that provides a high-velocity, low-amplitude (HVLA) force for more precise adjustments than possible manually.
We May Recommend Various Lifestyle Improvements
Treating your condition is more than directly addressing the problem area. It may also involve changing certain aspects of your life to better your health, which may include:
- Refraining from strenuous activity
- Eliminating or reducing your alcohol intake
- Relying on assistive devices, like motorized scooters
- Hiring in-home assistance
- Taking certain medications
- Regularly using cold compresses
Even just one of these recommendations could make a huge difference in how you experience pain and discomfort.
