Our Chiropractic office near Mesa is available for chiropractic adjustments.
Chiropractic adjustments often require several appointments, depending on the condition and severity of symptoms. The first appointment focuses on consultation and an initial physical exam, checking your medical history in which Dr. LeBaron explores the potential causes of your symptoms and determine if chiropractic care is right for you.
During Your Consultation with Dr. LeBaron
During the consultation, Dr. LeBaron may recommend x-rays that reveal the internal structure and alignment of your spine. X-rays can also help Dr. LeBaron look for underlying disorders and diseases of the spine, such as spinal deterioration, disc disorders, arthritis of the spine, spinal curvature, bone spurs, and other conditions that respond to chiropractic care.
Depending on what Dr. LeBaron finds during the consultation and examination, your next appointment may include chiropractic treatment adjustments, also known as chiropractic manipulation, spinal manipulation, or “an adjustment.” A chiropractic adjustment is a common therapeutic treatment for lower back pain.
The bones of your spine, known as vertebrae, sit on top of each other somewhat like a deck of cards. Flexible joints between the vertebrae help you bend, twist and move in a variety of ways. Nerves extend from your spinal cord through tiny holes in the vertebrae; these nerves help control sensation, movement, and motor coordination in your arms, legs, and throughout your body.
The Objective of Chiropractic Adjustments
A chiropractic adjustment refers to a chiropractor applying manipulation to the vertebrae that have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function normally. The objective of chiropractic treatment adjustments is to restore proper alignment to the joints and reduce dysfunction, which is a condition in which the joints of the vertebrae have abnormal movement, leading to abnormal function of the spine. Dysfunction can cause pain, tenderness, inflammation, and even decrease the mobility of your spine.
Dr. LeBaron can alleviate symptoms, such as pain and numbness, in your neck, upper back, lower back, areas near the spine, hips, and even all the way down to your knees and ankles. A chiropractor treats many conditions affecting the nervous system and musculoskeletal pain.
To perform the treatment, Dr. LeBaron uses various techniques to manipulate the joints of the spine, known as vertebrae. These techniques involve the use of either their hands or a small handheld tool to apply a sudden, controlled force to a spinal joint.
In some cases, one chiropractic adjustment is enough to correct a problem and resolve mild symptoms. Those experiencing severe symptoms associated with auto injuries, work injuries or chronic problems, such as arthritis, may need longer treatment programs that involves return appointments with Dr. LeBaron
Effective chiropractic adjustments require accurate evaluation and prompt care using safe, effective chiropractic techniques.
