Chiropractic is a health care discipline which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs and surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.
Because chiropractic therapy in Palm City is primarily applied to the spinal region, many people incorrectly assume that our chiropractic doctors at Coastal Family Chiropractic treat only back and neck ailments. While we do quickly and effectively eliminate back and neck pain, it's not the only goal. The objective is to restore and optimize your health.
While undergoing a chiropractic therapy in Palm City, the patient lies on a table, so the doctor can manipulate the spine. The chiropractor's movements may sometimes be gentle and feel like a massage and may sometimes be more abrupt as pressure is applied to correct spine misalignment. A click is occasionally heard, but this is normal and not dangerous.
Several chiropractic therapies in Palm City sessions are usually necessary to provide long-term assistance in treating symptoms with chiropractic care. Most patients in acute pain have to visit the chiropractor three times a week for a few weeks and then can taper off to once a week until the condition that brought them for treatment is resolved. When the patient is chronic, the patient may have to continue treatment or may require periodic adjustments when acute episodes occur.
