Chiropractics Q & A

What is chiropractic, and how does it treat musculoskeletal pain?

Chiropractic is a manual therapy that aligns your spine and the joints throughout your body. Dr. Gentry uses his hands and special instruments to manipulate your joints and soft tissues during treatment. 

A chiropractic adjustment provides a quick, effective, and noninvasive treatment for pain or mobility problems. Routine checkups at ChiroCare Therapy can relieve uncomfortable symptoms and help you return to your routine.

What types of problems can benefit from chiropractics?

Dr. Gentry uses chiropractic care to manage various musculoskeletal problems, including:

  • Neuropathy
  • Lower back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Muscle pain
  • Joint pain
  • Herniated or bulging intervertebral discs
  • Sports injuries
  • Auto accidents
  • Personal injuries
  • Sciatica
  • Frequent headaches

You don’t need to be sick or have symptoms to benefit from chiropractic care. Regular adjustments can keep your spine and joints healthy and alert you to potential problems when they’re easiest to treat. 

How do I prepare for chiropractic care?

At your first visit, Dr. Gentry reviews your medical records and asks about your symptoms and lifestyle. He then completes a physical exam and orders diagnostic imaging, like X-rays or an ultrasound, to check your bones, joints, and soft tissues.

After gathering a complete picture of your musculoskeletal health, Dr. Gentry develops a personalized chiropractic care plan. Often, that includes a combination of healthy lifestyle changes, routine checkups, and vitamins or supplements.
