Chiropractic Q&A

OM Spa Chiropractic & Wellness

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care is a nonsurgical, drug-free, natural form of healthcare. It addresses injury and pain with spinal adjustment to correct misalignments affecting the proper function of your nervous system.

Chiropractic care treatments help patients with athletic injuries, joint damage, muscle and tendon strains, and ligament sprains. They also help alleviate neck and back injuries, such as whiplash, herniated discs from auto accidents, and simple but painful conditions brought on by bad posture or bad lifting techniques. Modern chiropractic can also help with headaches, migraines and prenatal care.

Dr. Edmiston has a strong focus on reducing pain, improving your body’s functionality, and teaching you how to maintain good health through exercise, ergonomics, and other practices. He offers treatments for:

  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic headaches
  • Pinched nerves
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Sciatica treatment

How is this pain diagnosed?

Dr. Edmiston takes new patients through a performance-based evaluation to ensure he has a full picture of your spinal, neurological and muscular health. That will help him see if the location of your pain is the cause of the pain, or if an adjustment elsewhere will resolve the issue.

Frequently, neck injuries are responsible for shoulder pain, while impinged sciatic nerves in the back cause leg pain.

What is Dr. Edmiston’s approach to chiropractic care?

Dr. Edmiston’s wellness approach involves spinal adjustment, rehabilitation, ergonomics, and creating a specialized diet to improve cognition and prevent disease.

Dr. Edmiston practices three phases of care

  • Phase 1, Relief care: Relieving the pain
  • Phase 2, Corrective care: Correcting the cause of the pain
  • Phase 3, Wellness care: Setting a course for optimal wellness

What therapeutic treatments do they offer?
