What to Expect

Your First Visit at WELCare

Chiropractic care is much more than spinal manipulation. The first treatment session will last around 30 to 45 minutes, as a thorough history and exam must be performed to determine if chiropractic care is suitable for the patient. Most follow-up treatment sessions are anywhere from 10-20 minutes, depending on the severity of the issue. Treatment will include soft tissue therapy and joint manipulation to normalize joint mechanics. We offer exercise, dietary, and ergonomic recommendations. Rehabilitation and modalities are also provided as part of treatment: a full package of conservative, non-drug, non-surgical treatment options. Each treatment is customized to meet the specific needs of the patient.
We are also aware of other treatment options and readily refer to other doctors as needed.

Mobilization and Manipulation

Whether it is joints of the spine or extremities, free motion is essential for proper mechanics. Unfortunately, the body has a tendency to produce areas of stiffness and areas of instability. Stiffness typically leads to compensatory motion elsewhere resulting in tissue overload and injury/pain. Joint range of motion is assessed, and once areas of stiffness have been identified the doctors have the ability to begin to restore proper motion using a range of gentle mobilization and joint manipulation.

Myofascial Release

Whether it is from acute trauma or chronic overload, tissues have a tendency to develop tough, fibrous areas. These areas are not only a source of pain, but also effect the muscle and joint function. Myofascial release is a technique utilized to assess and treat these areas to reestablish normal tissue quality.

Kinesio Taping

The Kinesio Taping method was developed by Kenso Case in Japan approximately 25 years ago. It has since gained popularity in the United States especially after being showcased during the 2008 Beijing Olympics and up through the 2012 games in London. Kinesio Tape offers patients a different approach to rehabilitation than the traditional athletic tape. It is used over and around muscles in order to assist the muscles and provide support. Kinesio Tape also creates space under the skin to improve circulation and lymphatic drainage and reduce swelling. It provides pain relief by targeting the source of the pain.

Nutritional Advice

Proper nutrition is essential for not only overall health, but also tissue healing. Chronic inflammation caused by poor diet and deficient nutrient intake is sometimes the barrier to healing injuries and reducing chronic pain. The doctors are able to provide dietary and supplement recommendations to help assist your care.
