What conditions do chiropractors treat?

Chiropractors realign your spine to relieve pressure on your nerves, muscles, and discs. An aligned spine enables the nerves exiting the spinal column to clearly communicate with all your organs and tissues. When your nerves communicate and are not stressed, the symptoms of many health conditions can improve.

Conditions that usually respond well to chiropractic care include:

  • Neck and back pain
  • Knee pain
  • Slipped or bulging disc conditions
  • Facial pain/TMJ
  • Peripheral neuropathy pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Sciatica pain
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Vertigo/dizziness
  • Fibromyalgia pain
  • And more!

Why are chiropractic adjustments so important?

When spinal bones move from their correct position, they can irritate nearby nerves and disrupt brain-body communication, causing pain and/or weakness in different parts of your body and setting the stage for ill health. By seeing chiropractors in Charlottesville, VA for adjustments, you can relieve pain and have a better quality of life.

What does the nervous system do?

Your nervous system controls and regulates every cell, tissue, organ, and system of your body. It includes your brain, spinal cord, and all your nerves. Because of how important your nervous system is, eight bones protect your brain and 24 moving bones cover your spinal cord. Nerve messages leave your brain and travel down your spinal cord and out to every cell and tissue of your body. Returning messages either confirm that everything is working properly or signal that something needs attention, allowing the body to respond appropriately.

As the chiropractors Charlottesville, VA relies on, we’re dedicated to the health of your nervous system. Call us today to schedule an appointment for chiropractic care!

How is a chiropractic adjustment performed?

There are many different techniques to perform a chiropractic adjustment. At our office, Dr. Lynch uses an Atlas Orthogonal chiropractic adjusting tool for your atlas/axis adjustments (a specific upper cervical treatment) and an Erchonia adjusting instrument for full spine and extremity adjustments. Dr. Lynch also uses the Erchonia adjusting instrument to realign bulging and slipped discs. All alignments are made within the body’s normal range of motion with instruments. There is never any twisting, cracking, or popping. After our chiropractors in Charlottesville, VA are finished, most people say the treatment feels great!

Is chiropractic treatment ongoing?

It depends on your needs, but ongoing chiropractic treatment is beneficial for anyone’s health. A properly aligned spine helps reduce stress, maintains joint function, boosts your immune system, and prevents early-onset osteoarthritis.

Only 10% of your nerves carry pain signals. Often subluxations (a bone that is out of its proper position that irritates a nearby nerve) are present without pain. When spinal bones move from their correct position, they can disrupt brain-body communication and cause weakness in different parts of your body.

It is important to have your spine periodically checked for subluxations to make sure your nervous system is free of uninterrupted brain-body messaging to stay healthy. By coming to our chiropractors in Charlottesville, VA for ongoing treatment, we can help ensure that your nervous system is communicating with your body properly.

What is a subluxation and what causes it?

The moving bones of your spinal column cover your spinal cord. When a spinal bone moves out of its proper position, the bone can irritate nearby nerves and cause nerve stress. This is known as a vertebral subluxation. A subluxation can interfere with your nervous system and can compromise brain-body communications, which negatively impacts your health.

Whiplash injury, trauma, repetitive stress, sports injuries, poor nutrition, environmental toxins, drugs, alcohol, smoking, and emotional stress can cause subluxations. Contact the chiropractors Charlottesville, VA depends on today if you need a subluxation corrected.

How do I choose a chiropractor?

Many of our patients are referred to us by their family and friends. However, it is always good to read patient reviews of chiropractors in Charlottesville, VA. Many of our patients come to us because we use instruments to make our spinal corrections. All alignments are made in the body’s normal range of motion without any twisting, popping, or cracking. Contact us today to learn more about why we are a great choice for your chiropractic needs!

Is chiropractic treatment safe? What about for children?

Chiropractic treatment is effective, non-invasive, and extremely safe. Chiropractic care is designed to normalize the nervous system so that the brain can more effectively communicate with various parts of a person’s body, allowing the body to rebuild and heal.

Chiropractic treatment is great and beneficial to people of all ages. According to the American Chiropractic Association, chiropractors treat more than 35 million Americans (adults and children alike) every year. The birthing process, trauma and falls while learning to walk or ride a bike, and injuries when performing youth sports can cause spinal misalignments in kids. Make an appointment today with the chiropractors Charlottesville, VA trusts for you and your children to experience these benefits!

Does chiropractic treatment require a referral from an MD?

No, you do not need a referral. You can just call and schedule an appointment with our chiropractors in Charlottesville, VA.

Do insurance plans cover chiropractic care?

Most insurance plans cover some chiropractic treatments. Before our chiropractors in Charlottesville, VA render any services, we will explain all charges so there are no surprises regarding fees.
