At DC Doctors we treat and care for the entire body. We specialize in both spine and extremity conditions, including headaches, joint pain, back pain, neck pain, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, hips, knees, ankles, and feet. We also use a vast variety of adjustments and treatments styles that are individually tailored for each patient. Many chiropractic offices limit care to the spine only and offer a minimal number of treatment options. At our office, we also strive to help patients reach their individual goals, so you can get back to what you love faster.
The doctors at DC Doctors have undergone extensive studies and specialized training in the care of musculoskeletal problems. When it comes to sudden or chronic injuries of the joints and/or muscles, our doctors are second to none. We also specialize is injury prevention, musculoskeletal degeneration maintenance, and sports performance.
Most chiropractic adjustments feel great and are relaxing. In fact, adjustments help most of our patients enjoy immediate relief. However, if a patient has suffered from a recent injury, adjustments can sometimes cause slight discomfort due to the inflammation caused by the injury.
Usually not. Most of our patients are treated without needing an x-ray. However, if further imaging is recommended by our doctors then we can order MRI's, diagnostic ultrasounds, or x-rays.
Completion of care is always based on your goals and what you hope to achieve. However, in addition to achieving pain relief we encourage our patients to focus on reaching activity and performance goals as a measurement of care completion.
Why? The temporary relief of pain does not always lead to long-term success. While many of our patients enjoy immediate pain relief following treatment, it may take additional time to completely address muscular and joint imbalances and prevent the injury or tension from recurring.
The “cracking sound”, or audible, stems from the release of gases that build up in pressure within a joint. An adjustment releases the build up of pressure, which was created by the joint’s restriction, resulting in a “popping sound” when the adjustment is delivered.
Yes. If your condition fails to improve or is outside our scope of practice, we will make the appropriate referrals immediately.
