Chiropractic Care Benefits
In today’s busy climate, we often feel pressure to work longer at the computer, drive faster to our appointments, and carry heavy burdens of stress on our shoulders. Consequently, we put ourselves in danger of back injuries every day, and these injuries can lead to other significant health concerns.
Our spines are complex structures that are designed to bend, twist, and keep us mobile. They are the centers of our bodies, our literal “back bones,” and their proper function is essential to the health of all of our organs. When two vertebrae have trouble working together, the result can be a host of medical problems. Like holiday lights, if one bulb isn’t working, the entire string can suffer, and the result is a big mess. In fact, neck pain or headaches may be only the latest symptom in a series of declining health problems that began long ago with joint dysfunction in the spine. Luckily, science has demonstrated the ability for regular chiropractic care to address these problems at their source.
Health Benefits of Chiropractic Care
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing “state of the art” chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Drs. Lisa & Jamie Bell have years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
From osteoarthritis to asthma, many common health problems show a reduction in symptoms after chiropractic care. Here are some of the ways patients benefit from chiropractic care:
- Advanced Spinal Correction – Using state-of-the-art procedures to identify and correct misalignments, we specialize in using safe and comfortable methods to bring our patients relief.
- Improved Posture – One of our most important areas of focus is posture. We regularly screen patients to identify and correct poor posture for improved health, happiness, and energy.
- Headaches and Migraine Relief – Studies have shown that spinal adjustments can have lasting effects on headaches and migraines. We work with our patients to identify the source of the pain and align the spine for often instant relief.

- Senior Care – We take pride in our treatments for seniors. Through non-invasive methods, we work to restore balance, range of motion, and quality of life.
- Chiropractic Massage – Known for its gentle ability to reduce muscle spasms and increase patient healing, our massages can provide many health benefits to the spine and surrounding areas of the body.
- Musculoskeletal Efficiency – By working with the body to help it remove toxins and regain normal function, we have assisted patients with a variety of medical issues, including high blood pressure, insomnia, surgery recovery, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions About Chiropractic Practice
Here are some of the most common questions about chiropractors and chiropractic treatments:
A chiropractor is a medical professional who practices integrative treatment to complement healthcare from the patient’s primary physician and other medical care providers. Chiropractors make diagnoses and base treatments on individual patients’ specific needs. Treatments often focus on manipulations to correct joint misalignments to increase nerve function and blood flow to painful muscles and joints. Complete care chiropractic
features a range of traditional and nontraditional, nonsurgical, non-invasive treatments for general health maintenance and symptom relief.
Chiropractic health care promotes the body’s ability to self-heal. Each patient’s treatment is based on his or her unique symptoms. Chiropractors focus on spinal health for many treatment needs. Complete care chiropractic services can include manual manipulation of misaligned joints and vertebrae, spinal decompression, acupuncture, laser therapy, cryotherapy, and therapeutic massage. Chiropractic treatment
is non-surgical and non-invasive.
Allowable medical expense deductions
on your federal income tax may include, and are not necessarily limited to: payments of fees for examinations and treatments by doctors, surgeons, chiropractors, dentists, psychiatrists, and psychologists as well as “nontraditional medical practitioners.”
Generally, chiropractic care is safe during pregnancy. Chiropractic treatments are known to help many women by alleviating aches common during pregnancy. However, you should check with your OB/GYN before you schedule with a chiropractor for pregnancy
issues like aches, back pain, or other symptoms.
Chiropractors conduct thorough assessments before advising patients on or administering any medical treatment. A chiropractic diagnostic
examination might include a physical examination, X-rays, and possibly an MRI or CT scan. With the patient’s consent, the chiropractic team may obtain your health information from your primary care physician and/or others to provide the most effective complementary treatment for pain recovery or pain management.
Chiropractors treat patients without referrals from a primary care doctor or another healthcare provider. Patients often see a chiropractor first before seeing another medical care professional. But, remember that some health insurance companies require prior authorization for chiropractic and other types of medical treatment. We can verify what your policy covers for you.
Chiropractic care includes treatments for virtually all areas of the body. Health conditions that can be treated by your chiropractor include these, among others:
- Neck, shoulder, and back pain
- Hip, leg, and foot pain
- Herniated discs
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Headaches and migraines
- Tennis elbow
- Other conditions
Chiropractic care covers various treatments, from minor chronic aches to severe medical conditions. Just some of the many physical and mental benefits of chiropractic care
include treatment to relieve these symptoms:
- Limited range of motion
- Muscle or joint pain
- Shortness of breath
- Other conditions
