If you are looking for an alternative treatment for your back pain, neck pain, sports injury, car accident injury or on-the-job injury, chiropractic care may be able to help.
Chiropractic care is a conservative treatment approach that is designed to help your body heal from musculoskeletal injuries without surgery, invasive procedures or powerful pain numbing medications. Chiropractors, like Roy A. Logan, DC, believe that total body health starts with a healthy spine and central nervous system. When there are misalignments in the spine, called subluxations, the central nervous system can be negatively impacted, resulting in pain, dysfunction and an increase in illnesses and injuries. Chiropractic treatments from our chiropractor Austin TX seek to correct subluxations and restore health.
A chiropractic adjustment, also called a spinal adjustment, can be performed manually or with the help of an instrument adjuster. The first step involves locating the misalignments. This is usually performed via a physical examination and/or digital images. If the adjustment is to be performed manually, our chiropractor uses his hands to apply a swift thrust to the affected area. This pushes the vertebrae back into its proper location and restores its function. If the adjustment is to be performed using an instrument adjusting device, the device is placed against the misaligned vertebra and activated. The hand-held device then delivers several pre-programmed thrusts to the affected area.
Our Austin chiropractor offers spinal adjustments, spinal remodeling, electrical stimulation therapy, nutritional counseling, ultrasound therapy, corrective exercises and physical therapy. These treatments can be combined to create a custom treatment program that will help reduce your symptoms and heal your musculoskeletal injury.
We treat all types of musculoskeletal injuries. Common injuries we treat include back, neck and shoulder pain as well as herniated discs, whiplash, and headaches. If you’ve been injured in a car accident, participating in sports or at work, our chiropractor can evaluate your injuries to determine if our chiropractic services would benefit you.
Our treatment programs always start with an initial consultation and examination. We may even utilize digital images of the injured area in order to make a complete and correct diagnosis. Once we understand the depth and breadth of your injuries, our chiropractor will design a custom treatment program to heal your injury and restore your health. As your injuries start to heal, your treatment program will be adjusted. The exact number of treatments will depend on the severity of your injury.
