Chiropractor in Charlotte, NC

Welcome to new, returning, and prospective patients!

If you’ve been to a chiropractor before, you already know some of the benefits of getting an adjustment. But if you’re new to chiropractic and curious about its effectiveness, let us show you how your overall health can benefit from a few visits with our chiropractor.

Chiropractic treatments focus on the musculoskeletal system, with the goal of improving total body health. If you experience back or neck pain, headaches, or have suffered an injury affecting one or more joints, you might benefit from chiropractic care.

What Is Chiropractic Treatment?

Chiropractic treatment is non-invasive, drug free, and focuses on helping the body heal itself through proper alignment and movement. While many patients go to the chiropractor to get help with back pain and joint injuries, the goal of chiropractic is to restore harmony to the whole body.

A Doctor of Chiropractic, like Dr. Cerwin, can do more than spinal manipulation. They can provide lifestyle and nutritional counseling as well as therapeutic exercises to help you gain flexibility and increase range of motion.

For this reason, your first appointment with a chiropractor will include a detailed examination and questions about your diet and lifestyle. After your chiropractor has assessed your condition, they will develop a treatment plan with you.

How Does Chiropractic Treatment Work?

Your individualized treatment plan can consist of several office visits, one or more dietary supplements, and some at-home exercises.

If this is your first time at the chiropractor’s office, you might wonder what kinds of treatments you could receive during your visits. Your chiropractor will use their hands and sometimes a tool to gently manipulate your joints back into alignment.

Additionally, the chiropractor might use specialized massage therapy to loosen tense muscles and correct range of motion. They may also help you perform basic movements and stretches in the office for you to repeat at home on a schedule.

Spinal manipulation is the most well-known of chiropractic treatments. Your chiropractor will apply some force to manipulate your joints and restore proper mobility. When performed correctly, this procedure won’t hurt, and you’ll see immediate results.

In combination with at-home activities, your chiropractic appointments will help you recover from injury, soothe pain, and restore your body’s overall health.
