Chiropractic Q & A

How does chiropractic care improve your overall health?

Dr. Sandahl believes in a holistic approach to your health, providing chiropractic care together with therapies that support your total wellness, such as nutritional counseling, anti-inflammatory diets, and finding ways to help you sleep better.

As a chiropractor, Dr. Sandahl is a specialist in the health of your musculoskeletal system and nervous system -- and especially your spine, because of its impact on your overall health.

All nerves travel through the center of your spine. Some carry vital nerve signals from your brain to muscles and organs throughout your body, while others deliver sensory information from the body back to your brain.

Bundles of nerves enter and leave the spine through channels between each vertebra. When spinal subluxation (misaligned vertebrae), muscle spasms, degeneration, or any other problem affects your spine, the nerves -- and subsequently your whole body -- are also affected.

When Dr. Sandahl provides chiropractic care to balance and properly align your spine, you’ll feel the improvement throughout your body.

What conditions are often treated by chiropractors?

Chiropractic care improves your ability to move, strengthens muscles, and relieves the pain caused by musculoskeletal problems.

Whether you suffered an accident or acute injury, developed a repetitive motion injury, or you’re feeling the effect of age-related degeneration, chiropractic treatments can help.

These are just a few examples of problems treated by Dr. Sandahl:

  • Whiplash
  • Herniated disc
  • Sciatica
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Compression fracture
  • Lower back pain
  • Knee pain
  • Degenerative disc disease

Chiropractic treatment helps many other health problems and pain conditions, such as headaches, joint pain, and pain in your neck, arms, and legs.

What chiropractic techniques are used?

During your initial exam, you’ll undergo a thorough physical exam, including diagnostic imaging, if needed. After diagnosing the underlying cause of your pain, Dr. Sandahl develops a customized treatment plan to relieve your specific problem and restore your health.

Dr. Sandahl has extensive training and experience in many different chiropractic techniques and therapies. These are a few examples of therapies that may be included in your treatment:

  • Spinal manipulation and mobilization
  • Spinal decompression
  • Gentle neck manipulation
  • Graston technique
  • Manual and mechanical traction
  • Pain management therapies
  • Therapeutic massage
  • Extremity adjustment
