Chiropractic Care Q & A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care is a branch of integrative medicine that focuses on the unique relationship between the central nervous system and the overall function of your body.

Chiropractors like the team at Houston Spine & Rehabilitation Centers, diagnose and treat disorders of the musculoskeletal system using gentle, hands-on manipulation.

Chiropractic is completely noninvasive and provides near-instant results. It offers a safe and effective way to address both chronic and acute pain caused by disease, sports-related injuries, automobile accidents, and more. In some cases, it’s also used to promote general wellness.

Are there different types of chiropractic care?

At Houston Spine & Rehabilitation Centers, the team offers several types of chiropractic care, including:

Chiropractic adjustments

A chiropractic adjustment involves your Houston Spine & Rehabilitation Centers provider using their hands and/or a small, specialized instrument to apply controlled, sudden pressure to your vertebrae, joints, and musculoskeletal structure. Ultimately, chiropractic adjustments work to improve spinal function and your physical health as a whole.

Massage therapy

If you have a soft-tissue problem, such as tendinitis or a strained muscle, your provider might recommend massage therapy with the Graston Technique™. The Graston Technique breaks up lactic acid, preventing muscle tightness and soreness. The Graston Technique is a patented treatment and uses a special, handheld tool to mobilize tissue and massage muscle groups. It’s especially beneficial for ailments like:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Hamstring & IT band injuries
  • Joint pain
  • Tennis and golfer’s elbow
  • Trigger finger

You might also benefit from the Graston Technique if you’ve recently undergone a mastectomy or cesarean section delivery.

Active release techniques

Active release techniques or ART techniques target pain caused by overuse injuries. ART techniques combine soft-tissue massage with a movement-based massage. The team at Houston Spine & Rehabilitation Centers regularly prescribes ART treatment to address pain caused by:

  • Headaches
  • Back pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Sciatica
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Knee problems

You might also benefit from ART if you’ve suffered a sports-related injury.

Is chiropractic care safe?

Chiropractic care is safe and well-tolerated. Because it’s entirely noninvasive, you don’t have to worry about swelling, infection, or any negative side effects. Some people experience mild soreness or stiffness following a chiropractic adjustment, but this usually subsides within a day or two.
