Chiropractor Q & A

What should I know about chiropractic care?

As a chiropractor, Dr. Ventura specializes in treating the full scope of conditions affecting your musculoskeletal and nervous systems, with a specialized focus on the spine and its impact on your overall health. 

All nerves carrying messages between your brain and body go through the spine. As a result, spinal misalignment that compresses nerves leads to problems throughout your body.

Chiropractors perform many different techniques to correct spinal subluxations. In the process of restoring health to your spine, your body returns to a balanced state that supports its natural healing ability.

What health conditions do chiropractors treat?

Dr. Ventura offers chiropractic care as your primary treatment and as an integral part of your healing and rehabilitation following neurological surgery. These are a few examples of conditions often treated by chiropractors:

  • Whiplash
  • Arthritis
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Herniated discs
  • Scoliosis
  • Sciatica
  • Headaches
  • Radiculopathy
  • Degenerated discs

Your chiropractic care begins with the goal of relieving your pain and healing the underlying condition causing your pain. 

Other health benefits provided by your chiropractic treatment include reduced inflammation, increased mobility, relaxed and strengthened muscles, a better sense of balance, and improved performance.

What type of treatment does a chiropractor provide?

During your initial consultation, you receive a comprehensive exam, including diagnostic imaging if needed to determine your diagnosis. Then Dr. Ventura creates an individualized treatment plan, drawing from his extensive training in a wide range of chiropractic techniques.
