Chiropractor Q & A

Why see a chiropractor?

People choose to see a chiropractor for a variety of reasons. From lower back pain and sciatica to neck pain and headaches, chiropractic care can treat a range of injuries. Chiropractic care can also help treat other issues affecting the body, including joint and knee pain, as well as assisting with overall strengthening and conditioning of the back.

Some people need treatment as the result of an injury or auto accident, but many people use chiropractic care to fight the effects of aging, repetitive motions, or other factors that can result in the misalignment of the spine. Pregnant women and people with high-activity jobs can especially benefit from chiropractic due to the extra stress on their bodies.

Chiropractic care is available at Kalani Total Health Center for people of all ages, from children to senior citizens. 

What happens during chiropractic adjustment?

First, your chiropractor at Kalani Total Health Center will ask a few questions about your medical history while they perform a quick physical exam. They may recommend an X-ray or similar test before getting started, depending on your symptoms. Once your doctor has a clear picture of your overall health, the adjustment can begin.

Your chiropractor will ask you to lie down on a special padded chiropractic table. Usually, you’ll lie face down but this can change depending on the specific adjustment being performed. Your chiropractor will use their hands to provide a sudden force to a joint, pushing it beyond its normal range of motion to realign it.

During your realignment, you may hear a popping similar to what you hear when cracking your knuckles, or experience some brief, mild discomfort. This is normal and shouldn’t last long or be very painful. Chiropractic requires no anesthesia.

After your realignment, you may feel sore or fatigued, or have a mild headache while your treatment takes effect. These side effects should be short-lived.

What complementary care is often recommended along with chiropractic?

Sometimes your chiropractor may recommend that you combine your realignment with another treatment to relieve pain. These can include:

  • Heat or ice
  • Massage therapy
  • Acupuncture
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Exercise

Kalani Total Health Center offers all these treatments, including personalized nutrition plans to promote weight loss.
