Here at Fargo Chiropractic Center, we are your team to trust when your pain gets rough. Located in Fargo, North Dakota, we specialize in chiropractic adjustments to help you get back to doing what you love most, pain free. Many might be unaware of what chiropractors do or may only think of spinal adjustments or the place you go to after an accident. In reality, there are many benefits to seeing a chiropractor, and at Fargo Chiropractic Center, you can rest assured your health is in capable hands.
Chiropractors are trained specialists who use their hands or an instrument to apply controlled, sudden forces to joints, typically spinal joints. These movements and sudden bursts of controlled force are called “adjustments.” Chiropractors are tasked with treating physical conditions revolving around your body’s structure. Their goal is to relieve pain and improve your body’s overall functions efficiently and without the need for prescriptions or surgeries.
At Fargo Chiropractic Center, our specialists can help you in many instances where you might be experiencing pain in the body and around the joints.
Most often, people will go in to see chiropractors after some physical trauma to the body. Perhaps you overextended yourself, fell, or were in a car accident. Sacroiliac pain is also a common joint pain that warrants common visits, as lower back pain affects any movement or relaxed states. These circumstances, though all unique, all cause pain and minor misalignments which can cause pain. Fortunately, these can also be treated by our professionals.
Certain conditions like fibromyalgia and arthritis can cause lots of pain and discomfort to those with the respective conditions. Fortunately, both can be treated through chiropractic adjustments. Through adjustments and other non-invasive therapies, chronic conditions can be relieved by our professionals.
Most of you are probably not strangers to migraines. Migraine headaches are characterized by their radiating and tense pains which wrap around the entirety of the head. While it is not fully understood how it is that chiropractic alignments assist in migraine relief, it is commonly postulated that the reduced stress and improved circulation found after adjustments is what relieves migraines from occurring so frequently.
Everyone experiences stress in their life. For some, it can be daily; for others, it is only on occasion. While stress itself is not bad, prolonged states of stress can negatively affect your body and overall health. By improving circulation and reducing pain — as well as talking with our trained chiropractors — your stress and exposure to heightened stress can be mitigated through chiropractic treatment here at Fargo Chiropractic Center.
Chiropractors are regarded as one of the safest drug-free and non-invasive therapies used to treat neuromusculoskeletal conditions and complaints.
The benefits of chiropractic treatment include having improved circulation, reduced inflammation, and proper alignment, which does away with the pains caused by having malalignments in the joints. Please refer to “what a chiropractor can do for you” for more information, including a brief overview of the benefits to chiropractic alignments.
While there are a considerable number of benefits to chiropractic alignments, not all therapy is entirely perfect. And as such, it can have its own side-effects and considerations. While many feel immediate relief following an adjustment, it is somewhat common to have the pain linger for up to 24 hours. The pain should be gone following that time period.
Some reports have been published regarding arterial dissection following high-velocity upper neck manipulation, but while very rare, prior arterial disease is another common present pre-existing condition as found in the reports. Rest assured, our chiropractors are specialists in their field, and mitigate any risk for the safe practice of chiropractic alignments.
When it comes to insurance, there are many services your health plan might not cover. Fortunately, most insurances cover chiropractic treatment. Some plans might have dollar limits, specific referral requirements, or limited visits, but generally cover chiropractic treatment to some degree.
Physical therapists, chiropractors, and massages are often seen in a blur, but it is quite simple. Physical therapists are specialists in recovery and movement of injured ligaments, joints, and learning to regain proper strength and control of the body. Chiropractors relieve pain through precise and specialized practices by means of adjustments. Lastly, massages are intended to be the least physically intensive therapies to treat stress, and minor pains.
