Chiropractic Care in Zephyrhills

Your spine contains the wiring for your entire body to function, so it’s no wonder that keeping your spine healthy and in alignment is so important. If you live in Zephyrhills, the chiropractic professionals at Florida Wellness Medical Center can help you attain optimal health with regular chiropractic evaluations and adjustments.

What is a chiropractic office like?

Just like at a medical doctor’s office, our DC (Doctor of Chiropractic) will evaluate your health history, current issues, and diagnostic test results to determine what conditions or injuries may be causing your symptoms. In some cases, such as auto accidents, patients do not have any pain initially, but by visiting the chiropractor learn that their spine has been thrown out of alignment. By diagnosing and correcting these misalignments and other injuries quickly, you will have a much better chance of fully recovering.

After diagnosing the issues, the DC will develop a treatment plan that addresses all of your concerns. They will review the treatment plan with you, including the recommended number of visits, phases of treatment, and visit frequency. Your initial visit may also include a financial and insurance consultation.

What problems do chiropractors treat?

Subluxations, or misalignments of the spine, are the most common condition treated by chiropractors. However, any type of injury to the spinal structure may be treated with chiropractic care. Spinal misalignments and injuries can cause:

  • Pain with movement
  • Swelling
  • Tenderness or soreness
  • Limited range of motion
  • Impaired daily functioning
  • Muscle spasms
  • Headaches
  • Balance and gait issues

By initiating and following through with routine chiropractic care, you can realign your spine and help heal soft tissue injuries.

Is a chiropractor actually a doctor?

Many rumors exist out there about chiropractors not being actual doctors, but this is not true. Chiropractors are required to complete education similar to medical doctors, and are awarded a Doctorate of Chiropractic degree when finished. No matter if you call them a chiropractor, DC, or chiropractic physician, they’re all the same thing.

What do I need to do before visiting the chiropractor?

To get the most out of your chiropractic appointment, complete these simple steps:

  • Eat a high-protein snack or small meal
  • Stay hydrated by drinking extra water
  • Do a light activity, such as a brisk walk
  • Write down all of your problems, pains, and other concerns so you won’t forget anything when speaking with the DC
  • Make a list of any medications, vitamins, or supplements that you take for the DC to review
  • Get in a relaxed state of mind by meditating, napping, or whatever helps you calm down
