5. What can I expect during a Chiropractic Session?

During your chiropractic session at Power Health & Wellness, the chiropractor will begin by conducting a comprehensive evaluation of your medical history, symptoms, and performing a physical examination. This assessment helps the chiropractor determine the most suitable treatment plan for your specific needs. The actual treatment involves manual adjustments, spinal manipulations, and possibly additional therapeutic techniques like massage, electrical stimulation, or rehabilitative exercises.

6. How long does a chiropractic treatment plan last?

The duration of a chiropractic treatment plan varies depending on several factors, including the severity of your condition, your overall health, and your body’s response to treatment. Some patients may experience significant improvement in just a few sessions, while others may require ongoing care over several weeks or months. Your chiropractor will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and provide guidance on the expected duration.

7. Can chiropractic care be combined with other treatments?

13. How often should I visit a chiropractor?

The frequency of chiropractic visits depends on your specific condition and treatment plan. In the beginning, more frequent visits may be necessary to address acute symptoms and restore proper alignment. As your condition improves, the frequency of visits may decrease. Your chiropractor will create a personalized treatment schedule based on your needs and progress, and they will regularly assess your response to care to make any necessary adjustments.

14. What if I have a pre-existing medical condition or previous surgeries?

Chiropractors are trained to work with patients who have pre-existing medical conditions or have undergone surgeries. During your initial evaluation, it is crucial to provide your chiropractor with a comprehensive medical history, including details about any previous surgeries or ongoing conditions. This information allows the chiropractor to tailor the treatment plan to accommodate your specific needs and ensure safe and effective care.
