Chiropractic Q & A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care at Dr. Hipp's Chiropractic utilizes advanced spinal realignment maneuvers to eliminate postural distortion, which is the root cause of numerous health issues and pain. 

The practice specializes in prenatal chiropractic care and Chiropractic BioPhysics® (CBP), a research-backed method of restoring normal spinal curvature to improve health and well-being. The treatment combines physiology, physics, geometry, biology, and anatomy to identify the root cause of pain and treat it effectively.

Dr. Hipp's Chiropractic’s approach to healing includes completing postural assessments and offering treatments that identify areas of weakness, build core strength, reduce pain using natural remedies, and achieve proper spinal alignment.

Which methods of chiropractic care are best for me?

Your Dr. Hipp's Chiropractic provider determines which chiropractic solution is best for your personalized needs after completing a thorough evaluation. They discuss your medical history, medications, symptoms, lifestyle, and more. You might need blood testing, imaging procedures, or additional diagnostic tests before they customize your treatment plan. 

What happens during chiropractic care?

During chiropractic adjustments, you lie down on a comfortable table while your provider manually manipulates your spine, other joints, and surrounding tissues. They might use their hands, specialized devices, or traction to stretch and further manipulate your spine. 

Your specialist may combine strengthening exercises, K-Laser treatments, massage, or other methods to realign your spine and diminish ongoing discomfort. Your treatment could last 15-45 minutes, sometimes longer, depending on the type of treatment you receive. 

Patient education at Dr. Hipp's Chiropractic teaches ways to continue healing care at home between in-office chiropractic sessions.

Your chiropractor follows up for repeat treatments as needed to ensure long-lasting, highly effective, and pain-free results.
