Chiropractic Corrective Care vs. Pain Relief
There are several ways of practicing Chiropractic. Many Chiropractors adhere to the mainstream medical model for various reasons. Unfortunately, health insurance companies play a huge role in our health care today. Most Chiropractors work with numerous health insurance companies. When a patient comes in for Chiropractic Care, they get the insurance’s recommendation for care instead of doctor’s, simply because insurance does not pay for correction of the cause of the symptom that the patient initially came in for.
It is extremely important to understand that pain is only a symptom there is always a cause. Using painkillers for pain relief only masks the symptoms and does not correct the underlying cause.
What is Corrective Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractors that utilize corrective spinal techniques have an office full of high- tech corrective equipment. Most importantly, a Chiropractic Corrective Care office will perform pre- and post X-rays, which will show and monitor correction during Chiropractic Care. Most patients will spend between 45-60 minutes in the office while receiving Corrective Chiropractic Therapy. Depending on each individual case, Chiropractic Corrective Care consists of a combination of therapeutic exercises to strengthen the muscles to hold an adjustment, traction the spine to position the spine in proper alignment. If you are experiencing neck, back, and/or low back pain and you have not had your spine checked in the last six months, schedule your Chiropractic Care appointment with Dr. Taras Odulak today.
