While we commonly treat injuries that can benefit from integrative, state-of-the-art therapies and adjustments, many of our clients come to see us for general wellness, mood and mobility support. A chiropractic adjustment is a treatment method centered on resolving musculoskeletal pain or mobility restrictions using manual manipulations to apply careful, methodical force to the vertebrae or joints. The purpose is to allow your body to function optimally by removing any restrictions that may be causing pain, or mobility issues.

How Does Chiropractic Care Work?

When you visit us here at Pro Performance Chiropractic in Thornton, we’ll go over your injury, pain points or general wellness goals. Dr. Christopher Dorsa will conduct an assessment to verify the root of your physical symptoms to come up with a plan for bringing your body back to health. Typically, a treatment plan consists of manual adjustments tailored to treat the specific issue that you’re struggling with. 

However, our state-of-the-art office offers a variety of other techniques and rehab treatments to help you return to optimal shape with long-lasting effects. Your treatment plan will be tailored to your specific situation. In some cases, patients experience relief immediately. However, a long-term plan with both at-home exercises and in-office maintenance may be necessary.

What Can Chiropractic Adjustments Help Treat?

Chiropractic care is commonly used to treat back and neck injuries following auto accidents. However, it is also a powerful tool for treating sports injuries caused by both impact and repetition. You don’t have to have an acute injury to benefit from chiropractic care. In many cases, bad posture while working long hours at a desk in front of a screen can create spinal strain that requires an adjustment to restore proper biomechanics and posture. Many people also seek out chiropractic care to assist with everything from digestive issues to headaches. In studies, migraine sufferers have been shown to respond favorably to chiropractic spinal manipulative treatment (CSMT). Many pregnant women use prenatal chiropractic care as part of a pregnancy wellness plan. When used during pregnancy, chiropractic care has been shown to relieve pain, shorten duration of labor and turn babies from the breech position.
