Learn More about Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care is a safe, effective and evidence based form of complementary and alternative medicine that has been around for over 100 years. Doctors of Chiropractic Medicine treat neuro-musculoskeletal conditions (conditions involving nerves, muscles, bones and/or joints) without the use of medications or surgery.
Chiropractic care at GCSP is different. In addition to traditional chiropractic spinal manipulation, our chiropractors integrate exercise rehabilitation, manual therapy, nutrition counseling and ergonomic counseling into their treatment plans in order to help you get pain free, get moving and get well again.
What Conditions Can Be Treated By Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care is an effective treatment for a wide variety of neuro-musculoskeletal and health conditions for patients of all ages, including:
- Shoulder pain
- Sprains / Strains
- Whiplash injuries
- Work Injuries
- Sports Injuries
- Neck Pain
- Carpal Tunnel
- Pregnancy Related Back Pain
- Herniated/Bulging/Slipped discs
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Back Pain
- Tennis /Golfer’s Elbow
- Hip Pain
- Knee Pain
Chiropractic care is also used for the proactive prevention of conditions such as arthritis, chronic pain, headaches, and spinal degeneration – promoting overall wellness.
Is Chiropractic Care Safe?
Yes, Chiropractic care is safe for infants, children and adults of all ages. Manipulation of a joint may result in the release of pockets of air between joints, which causes a “popping” sound. The noise is caused by the change of pressure gradients within the joint, which results in gas bubbles being released. Typically, there is minimal if any discomfort involved.
The risks associated with chiropractic care are minimal. Some people may experience soreness, stiffness, or achiness in the area that was worked on after the first few treatments. The soreness, stiffness and achiness typically resolves within 24-48 hours. This is not an unusual side effect. Chiropractic care has fewer risks associated with it than taking certain over-the-counter pain medications such as Tylenol.
How Many Treatments Will It Take?
Treatment frequency varies depending on the type of condition, duration of symptoms and severity of symptoms present. To help reduce the number of treatments needed, our Chiropractors equip patients with home care therapies including home exercise plans, nutritional advice, self-massage techniques, and ergonomic counseling.
How Much Will Chiropractic Care Cost?
Most major medical health insurance companies provide coverage for chiropractic care. The cost of chiropractic care through insurance will depend upon your benefits.
Call your insurance company to find out about your chiropractic benefits and if our provider is in network. As a courtesy, our billing team can help verify your chiropractic benefits for you.
For those without health insurance, we offer cash rates to accommodate our patient’s needs. Call us today to learn more.
What Sets Our Chiropractors Apart?
Our chiropractors create effective, individualized, multimodal treatment plans and take time to listen to patients to understand their unique needs. By doing a thorough evaluation to diagnose a patient’s condition and formulate an effective treatment plan that is practical, they help patients feel better fast.
Unlike conventional chiropractors that limit their practice to spinal adjustments and/or massage, our chiropractors combine multiple modalities of care to approach patients as a whole. These modalities include, but are not limited to: spinal manipulation, manual therapy (which includes clinical massage), functional therapeutic exercises, unique stretching therapies, physiotherapy, electrical stimulation and ultrasound therapy, nutrition counseling, and ergonomic counseling. They also equip patients with home exercise plans, self-massage techniques, and other self-care tools that they can use for life once they are through with their treatment plan.
