We know that the last thing you want to do is take weeks off of work to nurse your chronic back pain, which is why our Columbia, MO, chiropractors, Dr. Matthew White, Dr. Sylvie Carpentier, and Dr. Monique White, are here to provide their medical expertise! While chiropractic care employs a variety of techniques and treatment options to help manage pain and improve how the body functions as a whole, the main focus of our Columbia, MO, chiropractic physicians is to provide spinal manipulation to stimulate the body’s natural healing response, reduce pain, and improve mobility.
What to Expect
Your first visit will consist of a comprehensive evaluation in which our chiropractor examines your body, goes through your medical history, and asks questions about the symptoms you are experiencing. In some cases, our chiropractor may order imaging tests such as X-rays before making a diagnosis.
Lower back pain responds effectively to regular spinal manipulation sessions. During spinal manipulation, our chiropractor will apply pressure to areas of the body to realign the spine. There are many benefits involved in getting regular spinal manipulation, for this non-invasive therapy can:
- Reduce stress
- Reduce tension and improve headaches
- Reduce inflammation
- Speed up healing
- Improve nerve function
- Increase range of motion and mobility
Spinal manipulation is a great option for people who want to reduce their dependency on drugs, avoid painkillers, or avoid surgery. During treatment, you will receive multiple chiropractic sessions over the course of several weeks, with noticeable effects occurring after 2-3 sessions.
Along with spinal manipulation, our chiropractic team can also offer:
- Massage therapy
- Exercise rehabilitation
- Spinal decompression
