The Fall Creek Chiropractic Perspective

Chiropractic is a hands on, manual therapy, that can achieve great results for many different conditions. In fact, if you review the most recent literature from several different recognized journals, chiropractic care is considered to be the best choice for treating back pain.

In addition, chiropractic care has been shown to be the most effective method for improving and providing long lasting quality of life for back pain sufferers. We comprise the third largest segment of health care practitioners in the United States, with over 50,000 practitioners. In the United States 21 to 28 million people now receive chiropractic services each year. Some of the most recent studies about chiropractic are not only showing how effective it is, but also how chiropractic treatments can help to lower overall health expenditures. This is being achieved by reducing the need for expensive diagnostic procedures, surgeries, and other health related costs.

Chiropractic manipulation releases joint restrictions to restore normal range of motion. The chiropractic adjustment helps to break up the restrictions of fibrosis that forms around spinal joints. It is very important to restore this joint function if you are experiencing an inflammatory reaction as a result of joint restrictions. Spinal manipulation is a very effective way of alleviating these types of complaints and prevents further problems in the future.

Our Clinical Philosophy

At our clinic, we believe that any treatment protocol must address the body at many levels. We strongly believe in using an integrated and holistic approach to your health. We combine essential aspects of numerous disciplines to provide a comprehensive, multifaceted approach to your treatment protocols.

Patients who do not exercise appropriately in conjunction with their chiropractic adjustment will experience only temporary relief. Our goal at Fall Creek Chiropractic is to provide new found function for each patient by combining the adjustment with proper exercise instruction. This offers our patients the best chance at a successful rehabilitation of their injury and also helps prevent future reoccurances of the initial problem.

A chiropractic adjustment can help to establish a new optimal pattern for the spine and the muscles that hold the spine in position. Appropriate exercises act to ensure the muscles change their existing patterns to better maintain the optimal pattern set by the adjustment. At the same time, a patient who exercises, and has not addressed adhesion formation that has built up due to repetitive motion may see only limited results. This is why, at Fall Creek Chiropractic, we treat not only the osseous structures (bones), but also address soft tissue restrictions by breaking up those adhesions.
