What is chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a conservative non-invasive branch of healthcare in which practitioners use precision manipulation to reduce pain and improve function in patients with spine, joint, and soft tissue problems. All age groups can benefit from chiropractic care including children, adults, and senior citizens.

Chiropractors are specially trained to diagnose disorders of the musculoskeletal system and provide treatments that get to the cause of pain or dysfunction. Chiropractors use their hands or a chiropractic instrument to perform adjustments that correct misalignments and joint fixations in the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractic is more than just “neck popping” or “back cracking.” The adjustment force is applied in a precise manner to restore proper joint position and motion, which in turn reduces inflammation, alleviates pain, and restores lost motion. When the joint and surrounding tissues are properly positioned and moving normally, your body has the ability to heal so that you can get back to normal activities.

Dr. Plumb utilizes an evidence-based treatment approach and works closely with the other providers at Lonestar Medical to ensure that his patients receive the most effective treatment with optimal outcomes. The primary care physicians at Lonestar Medical often prescribe chiropractic care as a key treatment for patients with musculoskeletal disorders, enabling rapid recovery from many painful and disabling conditions.

Is chiropractic treatment painful?

When you receive chiropractic treatment at Lonestar Medical, you are in the hands of a skilled chiropractor. Treatments are typically painless but manual therapy does involve touching, manipulating, and stretching parts of your body that may be tender or painful from an injury, so you may experience some minor, temporary discomfort that can be treated at home with heat or ice. In most cases you are likely to experience an immediate improvement in your pain and range of motion following the treatment.
