Chiropractic care can serve you in a number of ways, and how much you need depends on your goals. Pain Relief Most patients seek chiropractic care because they are suffering from back pain, neck pain, or have just been injured in an accident. Pain relief is their primary goal, and at Cole Chiropractic Clinic we are glad that we are able to provided gentle and effective treatment for relief of pain. Whether it is a new injury or chronic pain you have had for years, chiropractic care is a natural and effective treatment. Joint Function For some of our patients, they've noticed a slow decrease in their body's ability to move certain ways that is inhibiting their ability to perform normal activities. This is seen especially in athletes. Increasing range of motion in joints is one thing our Tulsa chiropractor loves to achieve because it restores a person's ability to do the things they enjoy, as well as the activities required in everyday life. This is an area where chiropractic can really shine, and is very effective. Health and Wellness Prevention is the third reason most people seek chiropractic care. Every nerve in the human body goes through the spinal column, and those nerves serve every structure in the body, indluding our vital internal organs. Keeping our nerve supply healthy and in good function is a way to encourage the whole body to stay as healthy as possible. These kinds of treatments are periodic and occur about once a month. Although these types of wellness visits are not usually covered by insurance, patients are glad to invest in them to ensure their long-term health. How Long? To answer our initial question; how long will I need chiropractic care? The answer is up to you. Chirpractic care can get you out of pain, ensure better movement and flexibility, and ultimately help you prevent future problems. We prefer to do all three.
