Chiropractic Care Q & A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care, or chiropractic therapy, is a drug-free, holistic approach to health care that focuses on medical issues including but not limited to:

  • Spinal related issues
  • Neck pain
  • Injuries
  • Joint pain
  • Headaches

In the practice of chiropractic therapy, Dr. Dicanio focuses on aspects of your musculoskeletal system, nervous system, and immune system to address painful symptoms throughout your body. Dr. Dicanio’s chiropractic treatment ranges from infants to older adults.

How does chiropractic care work?

At Quest Medical Care, Dr. Dicanio incorporates several techniques into his chiropractic care to treat a variety of medical conditions and provide effective pain relief. Some of those include:

Spinal adjustments

Spinal adjustments, or chiropractic manipulations, are a common therapy for neck and back pain. Dr. Dicanio applies controlled pressure to parts of your vertebrae that are experiencing irregular movement patterns or are functioning improperly. These adjustments increase your range of motion and treat irritable nerves that limit physical function.

Trigger point therapy

When your muscles contract and lock up, it hurts, and it physically limits you. Trigger point therapy is a technique Dr. Dicanio uses to unlock shortened muscles, or trigger points, by releasing them with pressure applied with his fingers or instruments.

Massage therapy

Massage therapy is relaxing and soothing. It enhances your overall well-being, provides pain relief, and reduces stress. Dr. Dicanio specializes in rehabilitative massage, which focuses on treating your muscles, ligaments, and tendons.

Electrical muscle stimulation

Releasing controlled amounts of electrical stimulation through electrodes on your skin can ease the pain of aching muscles. This innovative treatment helps you recover from torn, strained, or sprained muscles.

Why should I seek chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care is natural and helps you better understand the inner workings of your body. Working closely with a skilled chiropractic care provider like Dr. Dicanio makes you more in tune with your body, as he makes you an active part of your treatment. When providing adjustments, therapies, or electrical muscle stimulation, he explains the interconnectedness of your body’s nervous system and immune system and their links to your body’s functions.

The opportunity to learn about your body, especially with drug-free, all-natural treatment, makes chiropractic care an excellent option.
