The staff at Dolter Chiropractic understands that people seek chiropractic care for many reasons. Whether you seek symptom relief, corrective care, or maintenance care we offer a comfortable and caring environment to meet your needs. Our goal is to help you restore and maintain the health of your spine.

Symptom Relief:

Most people first seek chiropractic care because they are experiencing some kind of acute pain.  The most common reasons people consult chiropractors are low back pain, neck pain and headaches.  Numerous studies have shown chiropractic care to be effective in relieving the symptoms of these conditions.  Often after a series of adjustments, the painful symptoms subside.  However, this does not mean that the spine has been restored to health.  Chiropractors know that symptoms are only part of the picture of health.  Symptoms are definitely a sign that there is a problem with the body but an absence of symptoms is not synonymous with health.  People can develop serious degenerative changes in the spine without experiencing any significant symptoms.  Although symptom relief is an important part of car, the ultimate goal of chiropractic care is to restore and maintain the health of the spine.

Corrective Care:

After experiencing symptom relief many patients realize that they could benefit from further treatment to correct the underlying structural cause of their problem.  More important than relief of symptoms is restoration of the normal function and health of the spine. Chiropractors gently adjust specific joints in order to increase their mobility.  This improves the health in those joints that are showing signs of limited motion.  Your home exercises help to maintain that motion between your visits.  The combination of chiropractic adjustments and your home exercise program slowly normalizes the motion of the joints in your spine.  By normalizing the movement of the spinal joints chiropractic assists in keeping the back strong, healthy, and resistant to re-injury.

Maintenance Care:

After the problem areas in the spine have been corrected occasional chiropractic visits are recommended to ensure that your spine is maintained in good health.  An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.  It would be nice if you could attend chiropractic care for a few visits and have permanent restoration of the spine.  Unfortunately, the reality is , if the health of the spine is not maintained problems slowly return.  Good posture, regular stretching, exercise and chiropractic treatments are all ways to assist in the maintenance of a healthy spine.  Most chiropractic patients come to experience the many benefits of chiropractic care and find that an occasional visit helps them to maintain those benefits.
