National Chiropractic Health Month

National Chiropractic Health MonthOctober is National Chiropractic Health Month! It is a month dedicated to educating and engaging the public about the benefits of receiving chiropractic care. We hope that the more you know, the less afraid you will feel about stepping into our clinic. Your comfort is our goal, so we’ve broken down chiropractic care to help better your understanding.

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a health-care profession that deals with the spine and joints of the body as well as their connection to the body’s nervous system.

The word ‘chiropractic’ is thought to be derived from the Greek words for “hand” and “done”, leading to the meaning ‘done by hand’.

Chiropractic care uses precise manual adjustments to restore joint function and support to the nervous systems without using medicine or surgery.

Chiropractic is holistic care where providers want to improve a patient’s overall wellness as well as provide preventive healthcare.

What is a Chiropractor?

A chiropractor is a primary care doctor who specializes in spinal health and general well-being. They provide patients with care for spine-related disorders and other joint issues. Some chiropractors also offer soft tissue therapy, lifestyle recommendations, fitness coaching, and nutritional advice.

Isn’t it just for backaches?

Though back pain may be one of the more common reasons to go to a chiropractic clinic, it isn’t the full extent of their help. Chiropractic care isn’t just for those in chronic pain. Sometimes perfectly healthy people visit clinics for preventive care.

Chiropractic care helps with acute and chronic issues such as headaches, neck pain, sciatica, injuries due to trauma and stress, prenatal discomfort and much more.

Providers work to provide relief to the patient’s bones, muscles, joints, and connective tissue such as cartilage, tendons, and ligaments.

Chiropractic Adjustment: Does it Hurt?

You might think popping or cracking in your body might be painful, but chiropractors are trained professionals who understand the mechanics of the human body. A very specific and controlled force is applied to a joint to restore proper function and mobility. Treatment shouldn’t hurt, though there may be minor soreness as your body acclimates to adjustments.

Most patients report feeling lighter after treatment as though a weight had been removed.

What are some of the benefits of receiving chiropractic treatment?

Chiropractic care helps patients improve flexibility, immune functions, range of motion, and overall health.

    CK Chiropractic came highly recommended by a colleague. I had an excellent experience here for treatment after a bad car accident in Lake Tahoe while on vacation. Dr. Ta and his staff are super friendly, knowledgeable and make you feel comfortable immediately. Would recommend coming here for regular treatment or post-accident chiropractic care. Conveniently located right off the 15 with a small parking lot.

    5 star rating When I initially started treatment with Dr. Kien Ta, I didn't beleive I'd ever get out of pain. At first, due to the extreme pain I endured from my accident, the treatment was a little uncomfortable. Thank GOD for Dr. Ta and his team of assistants for making the experience much more tolerable.

    Thank you so much,

    5 star rating Came here for an initial visit after a car accident and so far so good. The place is clean and organized, which made it inviting. The staff was friendly and the doctor was nice. After a few x-rays, he noticed something was off and is evaluating further. This is my second time getting an X-ray and no other doctor has told me I had a slight abnormality so I'm thankful for that. I have a few more appointments lined up so let's see how long that can keep up their good service!
