Chiropractic Q & A

Chicago Chiropractic Center

Why do I need chiropractic care?

Chiropractic is a health practice that addresses disorders of your nervous and musculoskeletal system. Specialized chiropractic techniques are often useful in providing long-term relief of pain resulting from aging, injury, or chronic diseases.

Dr. Gordon can provide chiropractic care to address pain and mobility issues in your:

  • Neck
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Joints

Chiropractic care can also address the root cause of frequent headaches.

What chiropractic techniques can alleviate pain?

Dr. Gordon initially assesses your symptoms and area of pain by performing a comprehensive physical evaluation. Once she makes a diagnosis of the underlying cause of pain or disability, Dr. Gordon creates a custom treatment plan that includes exercises and lifestyle changes to improve your health.

Spinal manipulation is one of the most common techniques Dr. Gordon uses in treatment. Manipulations, also known as adjustments, can restore your joint functionality and flexibility. Dr. Gordon applies controlled force to the spinal joints to realign your spine and take pressure off surrounding soft tissue and nerves.

How long until I can see results from chiropractic care?

In many cases, you may feel relief of back or neck pain after your first treatment. Dr. Gordon can determine how often you need chiropractic care based on your medical history and individual needs.

Initially, one or two treatments a week can provide you with significant relief of pain and increased mobility in the injured area. However, she may also recommend routine maintenance treatments to provide you with long-term results.

Do chiropractic treatments hurt?

Your initial adjustment may cause you to feel sore and achy immediately after treatment. These issues should resolve on their own within 1-2 days without further treatment.

Dr. Gordon helps you relax and explains what to expect during your first appointment. If you have any discomfort after a session, she may recommend over-the-counter medications.

Continued chiropractic treatments can significantly reduce your pain, improve your posture, and realign your spinal column, making future treatments easier than your first.
