Chiropractic care is a holistic, integrative type of medicine that uses hands-on spinal manipulation and other alternative treatments, including the Activator Method®, to treat back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other conditions that affect your overall health and wellness.
Chiropractic care doesn’t try to mask your symptoms with medication. Instead, it promotes your body’s natural healing processes through proper alignment, significantly lowering the need for more invasive treatments like orthopedic surgery.
If you suffer from back or neck pain and conservative measures of treatment, such as rest, ice and heat therapy, or light stretching, don’t ease your symptoms, you may benefit from chiropractic care.
At your initial consultation at Mountain View Chiropractic, Dr. Biberdorf performs a physical exam, reviews your medical history, and asks about the symptoms you’re experiencing. If necessary, he might also order a series of X-rays or other imaging or recommend treatment with MyoVisionⓇ–the EKG for spinal health, to learn more about your musculoskeletal structure. After gathering all of this information, Dr. Biberdorf develops a unique chiropractic care plan tailored to your needs.
Typically, this includes a series of adjustments using the Activator Method, as well as nutritional counseling and physical therapy. Ultimately, the goal of chiropractic care is to get you back to 100% without invasive, painful, or time-consuming treatments.
Chiropractic care is incredibly versatile and can address a wide variety of aches, pains, and injuries. You might benefit from chiropractic care if you have:
Chiropractic care is also beneficial for athletes and weekend warriors. If you suffer an injury on the court or playing field, chiropractic treatment may help speed up your recovery process.
Chiropractic care is safe and generally well-tolerated. However, like any medical treatment, side effects may occur. Many people experience immediate relief from their symptoms following a chiropractic adjustment. However, it’s perfectly normal to experience some stiffness or mild soreness as you would after working out or exercising.
If you do feel any discomfort, it should subside within 24 hours. In addition, Dr. Biberdorf uses the pain-free Activator Method, so there’s no popping or snapping of your bones and joints.
