Our chiropractor in San Diego wants to help you make an informed decision about chiropractic care, which is why Dr. Keith Jeffers has provided the answers to some common FAQs chiropractic care questions that we receive on a regular basis.
Chiropractic care refers to spinal manipulations and other non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments that are designed to heal a wide-variety of musculoskeletal injuries. The primary treatment technique of chiropractic care is the spinal adjustment. This involves a short, swift thrust to the affected joint in order to realign it, restore function and reduce pain. Treatments can also include spinal decompression, corrective exercises, nutritional counseling and support and spinal decompression.
Our chiropractor in San Diego treats injuries of the muscles, ligaments and tendons. Common injuries include carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, runner’s knee, back and neck pain, headaches, sprains and strains, herniated discs and sciatica.
The exact number of sessions depends on the severity of your injury and how long you have had the injury. Most individuals feel relief after their first session, but it may take several sessions before you notice a significant reduction in your symptoms.
Chiropractic care is extremely safe for treating musculoskeletal injuries. However, if you have certain conditions, like a history of strokes, severe osteoarthritis or cancer, you may not be a good candidate for the treatments. Our chiropractor can help determine if you would benefit from chiropractic care during your initial consultation.
Chiropractic treatments do not generally cause any severe side-effects, and they do not interfere with many medications or traditional medical treatments you may be receiving. While most people do not experience any side-effects, you may feel sore or stiff directly after your adjustment. This should fade within 24 hours.
After your injury is healed, our chiropractor will help you stay healthy by putting you on a maintenance program. This helps address any new symptoms before they start negatively impacting your lifestyle, and it helps prevent new injuries.
