Chiropractic Care Q & A

What is a chiropractor?

A chiropractor — or doctor of chiropractic (DC) — is a medical professional trained in the diagnosis and treatment of neuromusculoskeletal conditions, including joint, muscle, and nerve pain and injuries. Chiropractors use hands-on therapies rather than drugs or surgery to relieve pain and improve nerve, muscle, and joint function and range of motion.

What do chiropractors do?

Chiropractors use different techniques and types of therapy to reduce pain and inflammation, increase range of motion, and improve physical function. Common therapies used by chiropractors include:

  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Soft tissue therapy
  • Electrical nerve stimulation
  • Therapeutic ultrasound
  • Cold laser therapy
  • Light therapy
  • Rehab stretches and exercises
  • Posture and gait training
  • Nutritional counseling

At Reno Regenerative Medicine, the team incorporates chiropractic care when appropriate for treatment of many neuromusculoskeletal conditions.

When should I see a chiropractor?

Chiropractic care can be used by people of all ages who wish to enjoy pain-free movement without relying on medications, invasive procedures, or surgery. Common conditions that chiropractors treat include:

  • Neck pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Facet joint syndrome
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Arthritis
  • Sciatica
  • Shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand pain
  • Hip, knee, ankle, and foot pain
  • Sports injuries

While chiropractic care is safe for most people, the team at Reno Regenerative Medicine always performs a complete exam and consultation to ensure you’re a good candidate for chiropractic care. Your exam may include X-rays taken in the office to determine the severity of any joint condition you have or trauma you’ve experienced.

Is chiropractic care safe?

Yes. According to the American Chiropractic Association, chiropractic care is one of the safest treatment approaches for neck pain, back pain, headaches, and other neuromusculoskeletal conditions. Chiropractic care also has fewer reported side effects than other pain relief options, including over-the-counter and prescription pain medications, joint injections, and surgeries.

The only commonly reported side effect of chiropractic care is mild soreness at the treatment site for 1-2 days. This soreness is similar to exercising for the first time and goes away with rest, stretching, and ice, as directed.
