Chiropractic Q & A

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care focuses on restoring the alignment in your skeletal system, namely, your spine, to optimize the communication between your nerves and brain and improve functioning between your systems. This modality is effective for acute issues like an impinged nerve, chronic conditions like lower back pain, and as a method to maintain and achieve overall health and wellness.

Through manipulation of the soft tissues and skeletal system and mobilization of your joints, Dr. Orenczak eliminates pain and other issues associated with spinal misalignment. He may assign at-home exercises that strengthen and stretch your muscles, building the support necessary to keep your spine aligned.

Beyond identifying and treating issues with spinal alignment, Dr. Orenczak uses chiropractic care to improve overall health and wellness and prevent future problems. His treatments can improve posture, gait, and how you move.

What conditions can you treat with chiropractic care?

Dr. Orenczak treats a variety of acute and chronic problems with chiropractic care, including:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Allergies
  • Arthritis
  • Bulging, herniated, or slipped discs
  • Headaches
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Sciatica

He may also recommend chiropractic techniques when your immune system malfunctions or weakens. These treatments can become part of your overall preventive health and wellness routine.

Why see a chiropractor after an auto accident?

If you’ve been in a car accident, even a minor one, you may have a whiplash injury and not even realize it. These common injuries occur when a force causes your neck to “whip” forward and backward beyond its normal range of motion.

This whipping motion can lead to muscle strain, muscle tears, or structural damage to the neck. These injuries can cause stiffness and soreness and, when untreated, lead to complicated issues in your spine including chronic pain.

By seeing Dr. Orenczak after an auto injury, you receive a thorough exam and evaluation. If he sees any signs of whiplash, he addresses and treats them.
