Chiropractic Cheyenne WY Happy Family

These are the most frequently asked questions about chiropractors in Cheyenne. Spine+Fit Clinic believes these answers can help you find the right chiropractor for you.

What does a chiropractor do?

A chiropractor restores function to joints which have become "stuck", which can alleviate many types of symptoms.

How many chiropractic sessions do you need?

The duration of treatment depends on many factors including severity of symptoms, duration of symptoms, the type of injury or condition, and the overall health of the individual. Each case is different.

Why should you choose your office?

Spine+Fit Clinic is centered around the idea of helping people not only reduce symptoms, but to also improve movement skills and strength to avoid returning to the same symptomatic conditions over and over.

What are common chiropractic techniques?

Commonly, chiropractors use their hands to apply gentle force in order to restore mobility of joints in the spine which have become "stuck". There are many names for the different "flavors" of chiropractic techniques, but many of them share a common goal and general strategy. There are also techniques that do not involve the rapid thrust that is associated with chiropractors. Special tools and instruments such as Neuromechanical adjusting instruments or Cox Flexion Distraction tables can also be utilized in order to restore spinal motion.

What does a chiropractor treat?

A chiropractor is an expert in treating dysfunction in the nerves, muscles, and joint systems of the body.

How do chiropractors relieve pain from injuries or accidents?

Pain can be of many different types and arise from many different causes. Some of these types and causes are due to dysfunction within the joints of the body. Restoring proper function of those joints can be highly effective in alleviating pain.

How does a chiropractor help lower back pain?

Most chiropractors focus on restoring mobility and movement to the joints of the lower back and pelvis. At Spine+Fit, we take it one step further and improve the strength and coordination of the muscles supporting the lower back, so that the condition is less likely to return after care is complete.

How does a chiropractor help neck pain?

Most chiropractors focus on restoring mobility and movement to the joints of the neck and upper back. At Spine+Fit, we take it one step further and improve the strength and coordination of the muscles supporting the lower back, so that the condition is less likely to return after care is complete.

How does a chiropractor help sciatica?

Sciatica is a condition where pressure is being applied to the sciatic nerve. There are many potential underlying causes, but most commonly, pressure may arise from misaligned joints or muscle spasms. Chiropractic care plus exercise is the best first choice to treat sciatica.

Are all patients adjusted the same way?

NO! Each patient presents their own "puzzle" in terms of their unique condition, and in finding the best technique or combination of techniques to help them recover. At Spine+Fit Clinic, Dr. Dean fully customizes a plan capitalizing on his wide variety of skills and tools for each patient. He has many options to develop an optimal solution rather than forcing patients to adapt to a particular strategy, which may not work well for their unique condition or their unique body.

Will a chiropractic adjustment completely remove back pain?

Sometimes. When a back is symptomatic simply due to joint dysfunction, the results of a properly applied chiropractic adjustment can be immediate, and often seem miraculous. However, conditions that have been present for longer, or have started to cause degeneration or compensations, may take a longer and more complete course of care to achieve optimal results.

Can I learn to adjust myself?

No, I tried...

Will I be required to remove my clothing at my appointment?

The vast majority of time, Dr. Dean's chiropractic treatments do not require removal of clothing. When a clothing change or modification is necessary, patient modesty and comfort are always primary considerations.
