What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care sessions are typically centered around gentle adjustments to the vertebrae in the spine, the neck, and the joints to promote overall alignment in the body.

To begin, your chiropractic care professional will usually go over your health history with you and discuss any issues you’ve been experiencing. Then, they will do an evaluation of your body and determine what areas could benefit from treatment. When it’s time to start your session, your chiropractor will have you lay comfortably face down on a chiropractic table. They will then use gentle manipulations to prompt misaligned areas back into alignment. These gentle manipulations can come in many forms based on the needs of the patient and the chiropractic technique chosen by the healthcare professional.

Chiropractic Techniques

There are many different chiropractic techniques used for treatment based on the patient, the type of issues being treated, and the preference of the chiropractic professional. While some techniques may be better suited for some people or situations, all chiropractic methods are safe for all members of the family. 

  • Gonstead Technique: This method is used most often to realign the pelvis or the lower back to reduce pain and misalignment in those areas. For this technique, the patient will lie on their side and the chiropractor will use their hands to prefer gentle manipulations. This is a common technique often used by many professionals. 
  • Activator Method: This method makes use of a chiropractic instrument to make manipulations. The activator instrument delivers gentle pulses to the particular area needing treatment and provides comfortable adjustment. The use of the device allows for more precise adjustment and the gentle nature makes this method a great choice for seniors and children.
  • Thompson Technique: This method makes use of a special chiropractic table called a drop table. The patient will lay flat on the table and a small padded section of the table will be raised a few inches under them. When the chiropractor makes a thrust, the table section drops, providing comfortable adjustment for the patient.
  • Diversified Method: This technique is thought to be the most widely used method for chiropractic professionals. This technique uses just the hands to make precise adjustments to exact portions of the spine, neck, or joints. The adjustment thrusts are effective and the hands-on approach allows a chiropractor to treat a very specific area.

Treatment Options

Health for the Whole Family

The main thing that makes chiropractic care so popular among Minnesota families is its availability and safety for the entire family. Families can treat a wide range of issues and injuries without medication or intensive medical procedures.

Infants 

From the beginning of life, chiropractic care can have benefits for our bodies. The birth process and the rapid periods of growth experienced in the yearly stages of life can often lead to misalignment in the pelvis and spine. If left untreated, children can begin to experience pain and discomfort as they grow. Chiropractic alignment sessions are a safe and gentle way to set babies up for a lifetime of happy and healthy growth. 

Children and Teens

The many changes that come with adolescence and the teenage years often result in misalignment from growth spurts and injuries from sports games and activities. Your family chiropractor might not be able to treat your teenager’s new attitude, but they can help provide a body free of pain and ready for healthy development. 

Adults

Whether it’s from long hours bent over a work desk or just the strains of life, adults often experience chronic neck or back pain. Most of the time, these issues are caused by or made worse by misalignments in the body causing pressure and pain on nerves. Regular adjustments can help adults achieve their wellness goals and a more pain-free life.
