What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic is a specialized branch of health care that focuses on boosting your body’s inherent ability to heal itself without the use of drugs or invasive procedures. 

The foundation of chiropractic care is the relationship between structure (primarily your spine) and function carried out by your nervous system. This relationship affects all aspects of your health.

What conditions can chiropractic care treat?

It’s a common misconception that chiropractors treat only back pain and neck pain. While it’s true that back pain and neck pain are extremely common problems, chiropractic care is effective against many other conditions as well.

At Park Cities ChiroSport, Dr. Petersen treats and manages all types of pain, including:

  • Headaches and migraines
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Elbow pain
  • Back pain
  • Hip pain
  • Knee pain
  • Foot and ankle pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Weakness, numbness, and tingling in the arms or legs

He treats pain related to sports injuries, auto accidents, and work-related injuries as well as slip-and-fall accidents and chronic pain.

What treatments might I get during chiropractic care?

At Park Cities ChiroSport, Dr. Petersen offers a variety of well-established and modern approaches to chiropractic treatment. Depending on your needs, chiropractic care may include:

Spinal adjustment

Also called a chiropractic adjustment or spinal manipulation, this is the cornerstone of chiropractic care.

A spinal adjustment involves quick and gentle pressure to specific areas of your body to correct subluxations, which are structural abnormalities. Adjustments aren’t painful and usually provide immediate pain relief.

Spinal decompression

Spinal decompression is a safe and effective treatment for many causes of back and neck pain, including sciatica, herniated discs, facet syndrome, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease. Park Cities ChiroSport features a Triton DTS spinal decompression table.

Adjunctive therapies

Other therapies Dr. Petersen may include in your treatment plan are massage therapy, nutritional counseling, therapeutic exercises, lifestyle modification counseling, and postural and ergonomic training.

What are the benefits of chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care offers numerous benefits to your overall health, including pain relief, increased range of motion, enhanced tissue healing, and improved balance and coordination. Regular chiropractic care can also help you relax, improve your sense of well-being, and increase your energy and athletic performance.
