Family Care Q & A

What conditions do chiropractors treat?

Chiropractors are musculoskeletal care specialists trained to diagnose and treat conditions related to the spine, nervous system, muscles, and joints throughout your body. Common reasons to see a chiropractor are:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Sports injuries
  • Auto accident injuries
  • Shoulder pain
  • Hip pain
  • Knee pain
  • Arthritis
  • Sciatica
  • Herniated discs
  • Pinched nerves

Dr. Thompson provides thorough orthopedic exams and in-house X-rays when needed. He works with local specialists and primary care doctors to ensure you receive the best treatment possible. Chiropractic care can be beneficial before and after surgery, too, to aid in recovery and get you back to normal as quickly as possible.

When is chiropractic care recommended for children?

Chiropractic care for children is recommended if your child experiences any type of back, neck, or joint pain. Children often have pain due to sports injuries, falls, and rough play. It's also possible that your child could injure their spine or other joints while learning to stand, walk, or run.

There is anecdotal evidence that chiropractic care may also help with colic, ear infections, and bedwetting. While Dr. Thompson doesn't treat these conditions directly, getting a chiropractic adjustment can restore normal motion to the spine, making your child more comfortable and better able to adapt to health challenges.

Is chiropractic care safe?

Yes, according to the American Chiropractic Association, chiropractic care is one of the safest noninvasive treatments for musculoskeletal pain. Chiropractic care involves thorough evaluations and orthopedic exams to determine if treatment is safe for you. If you have an underlying health condition that requires alternative care, Dr. Thompson provides the appropriate referral.

Are there special precautions with chiropractic care for children or the elderly?

Yes, there are alternative styles of chiropractic care that are appropriate for children and the elderly. Dr. Thompson uses different techniques and light pressure to perform chiropractic adjustments or soft tissue therapy on children, including infants, and the elderly to address their condition carefully and gently. Chiropractic care can be helpful for older patients requiring pain management when other treatments aren't effective.
