Are you suffering from back pain, neck pain, headaches, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, or any other type of pain? This could be a sign that you have some sort of neuromusculoskeletal system disorder, meaning that your joints, muscles and nerves are out of there proper position or alignment and in need of adjustment.
Neuromusculoskeletal system disorders can result from a single traumatic event or prolonged stress on certain regions of the body. For example, your back pain could be because you once improperly lifted a heavy object, or it could be because you sit awkwardly in a desk chair for eight hours a day. Whatever the case, the chiropractic care professionals at Lyceum Physical Medicine can diagnose, treat and almost always improve upon any condition that’s bothering you.
Our chiropractic physicians pride themselves on their ability to heal patients without drugs or surgery. Along with spinal manipulation, we recommend rehabilitative and therapeutic exercises to do in between sessions and provide dietary and lifestyle counseling when needed to tackle each unique condition from multiple angles. Here are a few frequently asked questions people have about chiropractic care:
- Is chiropractic care safe? Compared to most other healthcare treatments, absolutely! Think about it… there’s no going under the knife, sedation, drugs or healing periods involved when you’re undergoing chiropractic treatment. Occasionally, soreness can occur after treatment, but this is something that subsides over a short period of time.
- How long does chiropractic treatment last? This depends on the condition being treated. Treating acute pain, treating chronic pain and preventative treatment each require different regimens of care. Still, before getting started, your chiropractor will give you a treatment plan that outlines the length along with every other detail.
- Can kids undergo chiropractic treatment? Most children can benefit from visiting a chiropractor. Because kids are very active, there are plenty of injuries that occur that can be treated through chiropractic care. Generally, kids get more gentle treatment than adults.
- Is chiropractic care covered by insurance? Yes. It is covered by most health insurance plans such as medical plans, workers’ comp., Medicare, Medicaid and plans for federal employees. We would be glad to check for you if your insurance covers a visit to one of our chiropractors.
