Can Chapel Hill Chiropractic help me with my problem?
At Chapel Hill Chiropractic, a doctor of chiropractic (D.C.) will perform a thorough examination to diagnose the cause of your problem.
This will determine if chiropractic treatment can help you. If necessary, he may order special tests such as x-rays. Dr. Dan will then
explain your diagnosis, recommend a treatment plan and discuss treatment options. If at any time it is discovered that you require
attention from a medical doctor, Dr. Dan will refer you to the appropriate medical specialist.
Dr. Dan what kind of treatments do you use?
Chiropractors are best known for using spinal manipulation or adjustments. However in addition to manipulation, we at Chapel Hill
Chiropractic employ a variety of other treatments including: decompression traction to aid in the healing of spinal disks, soft tissue
therapies (such as myofascial or trigger point therapy), physiotherapy modalities (such as electrical stimulation), therapeutic exercise
(such as lumbar stabilization and proprioceptive training), low level laser therapy. We also will use holistic therapies such as nutritional
treatments, stress management, and herbal therapies and I am also a certified acupuncturist. In any case, the appropriate treatments
should be determined based upon your specific condition.
Dr. Dan how many treatments will I need?
That depends on the nature and severity of your injury. Some conditions can resolve in one or two treatments. Others may require
weeks or months of treatment and rehabilitation. A general guideline for an acute episode of low back pain of mild to moderate severity
with no complicating factors is 15 to 20 treatments over 2 to 4 weeks.
Dr. Dan, will I have to keep coming back forever?
No! The goal of my office is to get you out of pain and on your own as soon as possible. Some cases may take longer than others, but
every case should have a clear end point. For most acute episodes of simple back or neck pain, it is inappropriate for treatments to be
carried out indefinitely. However, a maintenance program is highly recommended.
What about insurance?
