Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care refers to healthcare spine specialists who are trained to mainly focus on identifying and treating musculoskeletal disorders, especially the conditions and symptoms related to the spine. Chiropractors like Dr. Steven Messerschmidt of Aurora Chiropractic Center – serving the greater Juneau, AK, area, offer noninvasive techniques and complementary methodologies that effectively diminish discomfort and pain throughout the body and provide the relief you seek.

What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care revolves around the fundamental concept that maintaining proper spinal alignment is imperative for your body to function optimally and for overall well-being.

How Does Chiropractic Care Help With Pain and Other Symptoms?

A chiropractor focuses on the spine and the related structures associated with its movement and support when in motion and at rest. Various chiropractic tools and complementary techniques are effective in eliminating pain, improving mobility, and enhancing one’s overall health.

Many conditions – be it medical or trauma related to a misaligned spine or nervous system, can be effectively managed using noninvasive techniques that do not require surgery or medication. These approaches and interventions often complement and support one another as each share the aim of reducing pain and improving your overall movement.  These are a few examples of chiropractic care options and alternatives -

  • Chiropractic Adjustments – these are designed to remove nerve interference and blockages, encouraging recovery and healing.
  • Spinal Decompression – a technique that creates space between the vertebrae of the spine, thus relieving pressure on the nerves, discs, and related structures.
  • Electrical Stimulation Therapy.
  • Massage Therapy.
  • Nutritional Counseling.
  • Custom Orthotics.
  • Cold Laser Therapy, and more.

These conditions often respond well to noninvasive treatment options offered by Dr. Messerschmidt –

  • Chronic Pain.
  • Degenerative Disc Disease or Related Disc Problems.
  • Shoulder/Neck/Back/Knee Pain.
  • Osteoarthritis.
  • Whiplash.
  • Sciatica.
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
  • Headaches/Migraines, to name a few.

The number of sessions or visits varies, but it is noted that routine maintenance visits are an integral part of the care, as prevention is often the best approach to achieving your healthcare objectives.
