Chiropractic Q & A

Why should I see a chiropractor?

Chiropractors are known for healing injuries and relieving pain, often without the use of medications or invasive procedures. You should consider building a relationship with a trusted chiropractor if you:

  • Sustained a whiplash injury from an accident
  • Have widespread chronic pain
  • Suffer from arthritis
  • Experienced a sports injury
  • Have back or neck pain

During the course of your comprehensive evaluation, your chiropractor may review your X-rays or other imaging tests and go over your previous medical history to create a comprehensive treatment plan, often starting your care the same day.

If your injuries were sustained through trauma, like after a car accident, your chiropractor may also want to check your accident report for a better understanding of precisely how your injuries occurred.

What treatments does a chiropractor provide?

Dr. Nelson and the team at Root Medical offer a wide range of state-of-the-art treatments and therapies to ensure that you can get the relief you need. Most treatment plans include manual manipulation with Cox® Technic, a flexion-distraction technique to realign your entire skeleton starting with the vertebrae along your spine.

Some chiropractic care plans also involve regenerative and soft tissue treatments designed to improve your healing and relieve pain. Your comprehensive plan may include:

  • Ultrasound therapy
  • Erchonia® cold laser therapy
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Stem cell therapy
  • Intravenous (IV) therapy

As a wellness practitioner, Dr. Nelson also provides clinical-grade nutritional supplements proven to minimize inflammation and promote tissue healing.

How many chiropractic appointments do I need?

During your consultation, Dr. Nelson discusses the number and frequency of chiropractic sessions you’re likely to need. On average, men and women visit the clinic 2-4 times per week for at least 1-3 months initially. As your condition improves and your body gets stronger, Dr. Nelson may gradually reduce your sessions to once or twice a week.

Most men and women find that chiropractic care is so beneficial for their overall health, they continue visiting Root Medical a couple times each month, just for routine maintenance and adjustments.
