FAQs on Chiropractic Care
On your first visit, one of our chiropractors will conduct a thorough history and physical exam. The purpose of the history is to determine not only the cause of your pain but what aspects of your life might re-aggravate the condition in the future.
The physical examination includes a range of motion testing, neurological testing, muscle palpation, orthopedic tests, and other methods that help determine the diagnosis.
If the diagnosis is something our chiropractors can treat, treatment will be performed on the first visit, time permitting. If further information is required, or our chiropractor feels that the condition requires emergency attention, the patient is sent to the proper healthcare professional for additional imaging or assessment.
No! Our chiropractors treat a variety of conditions, many of which do not involve the spine at all. Even those that involve spinal joints can be resolved with many different techniques. Although adjusting can be of great benefit to certain conditions, it is not required at all. Some of our chiropractors adjust 50% of their patients, while others hardly adjust at all. It depends on the case, the practitioner, and above all else, the patient’s preference.
A good chiropractor and a good physiotherapist often treat very similarly. This is especially true at Encompass Sports Therapy, where all of our practitioners provide hands-on, one on one treatments in a private room.
The majority of our chiropractors and physiotherapists have the same training in acupuncture, active release, shockwave, and class IV laser therapy.
Thus, treatments can be quite similar, depending on the condition. The largest difference might be that chiropractors are able to perform adjustments, which could make them the better choice for acute, joint-related injuries, whereas our physiotherapists receive more training in rehabilitation, which might make them the best choice for more chronic issues.
A lot of our patients actually seek both kinds of therapy; chiropractic for the acute injury, and then transition to physiotherapy as they can receive similar hands-on therapy while learning rehab skills to keep the issue from returning.
