Chiropractic Care Q & A

What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic is a therapeutic system that focuses on restoring and improving your body’s innate power to heal itself. The core of chiropractic care is manual adjustments that align the joints, especially your spine, to better support nervous system function.

The word chiropractic means “to be done by hand.” In addition to hands-on adjustments like the sacro-occipital technique (SOT), the chiropractors at Health Atlast employ a variety of instruments and devices, including:

  • The Activator Method®
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Therapeutic ultrasound
  • Traction and intersegmental traction
  • Ice packs and heat packs
  • Roller tables
  • Paraffin wax treatments
  • Supports and braces
  • Custom orthotics


They may also recommend nutritional supplements and vitamins and teach you exercises to perform at home for ongoing care.

What Conditions Do Chiropractors Treat?

The most common reasons people seek chiropractic care is to find relief from neck pain, back pain, and headaches. The highly trained Doctors of Chiropractic at Health Atlast also diagnose and treat the underlying causes of many health problems, including:

  • Migraines
  • Low back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Arthritis pain
  • Joint pain
  • Sports injuries like muscle strains
  • Car accident injuries like whiplash
  • Women’s health issues like irregular periods
  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain in the jaw


Chiropractic care at Health Atlast can help you find relief from these conditions without using unnecessary drugs or surgery.

What Should I Expect from a Chiropractic Treatment?

First, your Health Atlast chiropractor performs a comprehensive evaluation of your overall health, including a thorough review of your symptoms and medical history. They may also take diagnostic tests, like an on-site X-ray, or order bloodwork to check for nutrient deficiencies.

After they diagnose your condition, your chiropractor treats the root cause rather than merely masking the symptoms. Chiropractic care isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach, which is why your provider at Health Atlast spends time discussing the best treatment for your unique needs.

They may recommend chiropractic care alone or in combination with other holistic treatments at Health Atlast, including:

  • Acupuncture
  • Massage therapy
  • Trigger point injections
  • Osteopathic manipulation


The number of treatments you need depends on your condition. Acute (short-term) pain may improve right away or with 4-6 treatments, while chronic conditions, like arthritis, may take more time.
