At Symmetry Chiropractic & Acupuncture, our team of Naperville chiropractors is here to help you achieve optimal health and wellness. Through the use of non-invasive and drug-free chiropractic care, our very own Dr. Timothy Erickson works to support wellness through spinal health.
We get a lot of questions from our patients, so we thought it would be useful to compile and answer some of the most frequently asked questions for your reference.
Chiropractic adjustments are one of the most basic and common techniques used here in our office. Specifically, chiropractic adjustments utilize skilled and careful movements to gently manipulate the spine, with the ultimate goal being to improve the overall alignment of the spine. Better spinal alignment, in turn, can provide relief for many symptoms like back pain, neck pain, and stiffness.
One of the main appeals of chiropractic care is that it has the potential to bring numerous benefits at very little risk. First of all, chiropractic treatments are generally non- or minimally-invasive, so the risk of complications is very low from the start. Furthermore, chiropractic care is an excellent alternative to more invasive treatments or even medication use, which may mask symptoms but fail to treat the true cause. Chiropractic care uses natural methods and techniques to help not only relieve symptoms, but address their root cause as well.
Pediatric chiropractic care is focused on providing non-invasive and drug-free treatment to children suffering from spine-related health conditions. For instance, pediatric chiropractic care can be used to treat conditions common in children such as scoliosis and back pain caused by poor posture and carrying heavy back packs at school. Chiropractic treatments, such as regular spinal adjustments, have also been found to be effective in preventing some medical problems in children as they age and develop, such as osteoporosis and arthritis.
Prenatal chiropractic care is offered specifically to pregnant women. Specifically, prenatal care can help to make women more comfortable throughout pregnancy in addition to making labor easier. Chiropractic techniques such as therapeutic massage and regular spinal adjustments can help to relax muscles, relieve back and neck pain associated with pregnancy, and improve alignment of the spine for a smoother birth.
Many patients don't realize that chiropractic care is generally included in health insurance coverage. However, we always recommend that patients check with their health insurance providers to find out for sure which treatments are covered and which are not. If you are on Medicare or other medical plan, chiropractic care will most likely be covered as well. Still, you may need to pay a co-pay for each visit or have your plan deductible met before benefits will kick in and your office treatments will be covered.
Unfortunately, there's no universal answer to this question because each patient and each situation is unique. This is why we always recommend coming in for an exam and consultation with our chiropractor so we can get a better idea of what's causing your symptoms. From there, we can determine the best options for treatment and come up with a Naperville chiropractic care plan that factors in your unique needs and lifestyle.
Some patients will find the relief they're looking for after just one treatment with us, whereas we may recommend ongoing treatments (such as regular spinal adjustments) to relieve pain and keep symptoms from coming back for others.
We hope this has helped to answer some of the questions you may have about chiropractic care. If you have any further questions or concerns, or if you'd like to schedule an appointment with us, give Symmetry Chiropractic & Acupuncture a call at 630-983-1805.
