Our Chiropractors in Coral Springs are trained to carefully look at the overall balance of the body—from posture to diet—and treat the overall wellness. There is a connection between the muscles, ligaments, skeletal structure nerves, organs and every part of the body. Chiropractic care takes into account the daily stressors and impact of life, focusing on releasing tension to promote healing. Whether you have been injured playing sports, experienced whiplash from an auto accident, or simply want to seek out better health, scheduling a chiropractic appointment is a great way to kick off 2019.
Preparing for Your Coral Springs Chiropractic Appointment
Start the year right with an appointment for a Coral Springs chiropractor that will focus on whole body health! If you have scheduled your first appointment with Dr. Gady, then you are off to a great start. To prepare for your appointment, you will want to gather information to help provide an accurate medical history.
- What symptoms (if any) are you experiencing?
- When did your symptoms start?
- Have you ever experienced a traumatic injury, fall, accident or surgery?
- Have you ever been in a car accident (even a small one)?
- Is there anything you can do to make the pain, discomfort or stiffness go away?
- Is there anything you do that makes the pain, discomfort or stiffness worse?
- Why do you think you have pain or discomfort?
- What is your typical work and exercise (if any) routine?
- Have you been diagnosed with any diseases, illnesses, physical disabilities or injuries?
- Are you taking any pain medications or supplements?
Visiting the Chiropractor for the First Time
When you come to your first chiropractic appointment, wear loose fitting clothing. You want the doctor to be able to assess your structure and muscles as clearly as possible. Layering so you can pair down to just one layer of a t-shirt kind of material is ideal for your assessment and adjustments. Try to relax and have your schedule clear so you aren’t feeling rushed. Avoid taking pain medication if possible so it doesn’t mask your feelings of discomfort or your symptoms that need to be addressed.
Your chiropractor in Coral Springs is going to do a physical assessment to see where your pain and discomfort is stemming from. Most of the time, the irritation we feel in the muscles or the symptoms we experience (like headaches) are really being caused by a misalignment somewhere along the spine or something being “off” in the way the body is aligned. Adjusting the major joints (hips, knees, elbows, shoulders) or along the spine allows the body to get back into the correct alignment and stops the pulling on the surrounding muscles.
Your doctor has to get to know where the stress lies in your body and how it is impacting your structure. Most of the time X-ray is used to ensure that nothing is missed. If you did have a spinal fracture or the beginning stages of a degenerative spinal disease, treatment would be different. So it is always best for a chiropractor to stay on the safe side when treating a new patient.
Chiropractic care can increase healing, improve moods, boost the immune system, relax the mind, strengthen the body, relieve pain naturally and increase mobility. While some patients come to improve their already good health, others come for a wide variety of problems:
- Disability symptoms
- Work injury
- Car crash
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Pregnancy symptoms
- Stomach aches
- Tingling or numbness
- Frozen shoulder or other joints
- Hip pain
- Shoulder pain
- Joint pain
