Are you new to chiropractic and want to know more? Your doctor of chiropractic medicine at Royal Chiropractic and Dental Centers is glad to oblige! Despite being a relatively new field in healthcare, did you know that more than 30 million people in the U.S. visit a chiropractor each year? That’s because we offer safe, effective natural treatments that don’t rely on potentially harmful medications.
Read on to learn more about why so many patients of all ages have come to make chiropractic care part of their healthy lifestyle!
It may interest you to learn that, yes, we are doctors, completing a four-year doctoral degree program and passing state board exams before we can practice. Possessing deep knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and neurology allows us to diagnose and treat a range of conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system (your bones, tendons and ligaments) and the nervous system primarily using safe, proven methods of manipulating, or adjusting, the spine.
These adjustments correct posture while reducing pain and inflammation and improving function and mobility among patients with conditions affecting the back, neck, muscles and joints. Chiropractic care also has been found to be effective in treating headaches, sports injuries, improving sleep, and giving your immune system a boost.
During your first visit, we’ll engage in a consultation during which we’ll want to know about your medical and family history, activity level, diet, sleep habits and any other factors that may be affecting your health. We’ll then conduct a hands-on examination, and may request an X-ray or other tests. We may perform an adjustment, but rest assured: This method has very little risk of serious side effects. You may even begin to feel better after just one session, although typically a few more visits will be required.
Where you seek treatment makes all the difference. Our chiropractor at Royal Chiropractic and Dental Centers has had years of experience caring for patients of all ages. Our friendly staff will make you feel welcome! Please contact us to schedule a visit.
