At Palmercare Chiropractic, our chiropractors work to realign the spine and relieve pain and tension throughout the body.

What Can You Expect from Your First Chiropractic Appointment?
If you have a chronic condition or are dealing with a recent injury, making an appointment to see one of our certified chiropractic specialists can be life changing. When you come in for your first appointment, our chiropractor will go through a brief assessment and examination process to determine exactly what is causing your pain, and pinpoint any blockages or trigger points that are contributing to your pain and discomfort.
The chiropractor will also ask you questions about your health history, daily habits, nutrition and diet, and activity levels for a comprehensive analysis in order to figure out exactly where the chronic issues are stemming from. We look at the person as a whole because everything throughout the body is interconnected and can affect the body’s full function.
The spine houses the central nervous system, which facilitates communication between the brain and the body. If even one vertebrae is out of alignment in the spine, it can interfere with this incredibly important function and cause any number of health problems, including:
- Chronic pain
- Soreness and stiffness
- Lack of mobility
- Poor functioning immune system
- Joint dysfunction
If left untreated and unaddressed, these problems can become worse and cause more permanent, long-term damage. Making an appointment with one of our chiropractors can be crucial for maintaining your quality of life and preventing conditions from worsening.
Alternative Solution to Other Conventional Treatments
Unfortunately, when a patient complains of pain, many doctors will immediately prescribe medications and painkillers in order to mask the painful symptoms. However, this does not treat the true source of the underlying problem; it is only a temporary solution. According to the American Psychiatric Association, around 2 million people in the U.S. alone have a substance use disorder related to prescription opioid pain medication, and one in three people know someone who is addicted to opioids.
Additionally, many people choose to get surgery in order to try and fix the problem. However this can have many risks and complications, and requires weeks of recovery time, sometimes even longer.
Rather than submitting to a lifetime of medication or going through the lengthy and painful process of surgery, consider your alternative options for pain relief.
At Palmercare Chiropractic, we believe in a holistic, alternative approach to healthcare. Our chiropractors work to address the underlying cause of your pain through gentle adjustments and manual manipulations in order to provide you with effective relief that lasts.
