Chiropractic Care Q & A

What is chiropractic care?

Dr. Wilson and his team compare chiropractic care to building a house -- certain things need to happen in a particular order for everything to stand strong and work correctly. The same is true for your body. We separate chiropractic care into three phases that build upon one another to ensure your body is strong and functioning correctly.

To understand our approach to chiropractic care, it’s helpful to consider all three phases which include:

  • Relief care
  • Corrective care
  • Wellness care

What is chiropractic relief care?

Many people go to a chiropractor for the first time for pain relief. In this first phase of care, the main goal is to reduce your symptoms. Sometimes this requires daily visits or two or three visits per week for a time.

Our chiropractors may recommend spinal adjustments, massage, and other therapies to relieve your pain and begin the healing process. Because many conditions don’t cause pain until they’re quite advanced and being pain-free is not always a good indicator of health, you may remain in this first phase of treatment even after your pain has resolved.

What is chiropractic corrective care?

Most chiropractors regard the elimination of symptoms as the easiest part of a person’s care. If we stop there, however, the chances are the condition that brought you to Regenesys Physical Medicine will return. To prevent a rapid recurrence of your symptoms, it’s necessary to continue with chiropractic care even though your symptoms are gone.

During the corrective or restorative phase of chiropractic care, you can expect to continue experiencing improvements in both pain and function. Also, depending on your circumstances, you may begin guided exercises and stretches at the clinic and receive instructions for home exercises to help accelerate your healing during this phase of chiropractic care.

Depending on the severity of your initial injury or condition, this phase of your treatment may last for several months.

What is chiropractic wellness care?

Your spine is an intricate system of mechanical parts that includes 24 presacral vertebrae and the pelvic girdle. Each part is subject to wear and tear over time. Like tune-ups for your car, chiropractic wellness care provides routine maintenance that helps prevent damage or catches it early when treatments are often most effective.

Spinal problems can’t always be prevented, but you can take steps to improve your spine’s chances of remaining healthy. These steps include:

  • Spinal adjustments one or two times a month, depending on your activity level
  • Daily stretching with yoga and/or pilates
  • Consuming a diet rich in natural sources of vitamins and minerals, especially calcium, including green leafy vegetables and other nutrient-rich foods
  • Daily core and paraspinal strengthening activities
  • Good posture habits

Chiropractic wellness care gives your spine its best chance at remaining healthy.

How does chiropractic care relieve back pain?

As experienced professionals with over a decade of experience, our chiropractic provider team utilizes a number of specialized techniques to alleviate all different types of back pain for the residents of Frisco, Little Elm, and the surrounding communities.

Chiropractic care is commonly used as a treatment for:

  • Low back pain
  • Cervical or neck pain
  • Radiculopathy (radiating pain in an arm/leg)
  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Sciatica or pinched nerve

In addition to spinal adjustments, our team conducts a complete physical exam to determine the source of your pain and then he may recommend other treatments such as ultrasound, cold laser,  heat or cold therapy, massage therapy, or functional rehabilitation.

Why does my upper and mid back hurt?

Back pain can occur in any part of your back, but is most common in your low back because it carries most of your weight. However, it’s not uncommon to experience pain in your upper or mid back area.

Some of the most common causes of upper and mid back pain include:

  • Stress
  • Poor posture
  • Auto accidents
  • Myofascial pain
  • Pinched nerve
  • Herniated disc
  • Osteoarthritis

If you’re experiencing upper or mid back pain, our expert chiropractors in Frisco can evaluate your spine and make recommendations for treatment, which may include spinal manipulation.

Can chiropractic care ease my sacroiliac (SI) joint pain?

If you’re experiencing SI joint pain, which is often identified when you feel pain in your buttock region after standing up, chiropractic care may be the best place to start for relief from your discomfort. After a thorough examination to ensure chiropractic care is right for you, our team provides relief through gentle spinal manipulation or mobilization to improve the function and mobility of your SI joint, which is the joint that connects your spine at the sacrum to your pelvis.

We may also gently stretch your low back, buttock, and leg muscles to reduce pressure on your SI joint to provide further relief from your discomfort and pain.

Can chiropractic care help my tailbone pain?

Chiropractic care can ease tailbone pain, clinically referred to as coccydynia. Whether from a fall or sitting on a hard surface, tailbone pain is common and usually clears up in a few weeks. However, if the dull, achy pain doesn’t go away, the expert chiropractic team in Frisco can help ease your discomfort with gentle manipulation and rehabilitation exercises.
