Chiropractors Serving Schenectady, Albany & Colonie, NY

Our chiropractic professionals focus on disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, and the effects of these disorders on your overall health. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat musculoskeletal conditions, including back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.

Our team of Chiropractic Doctors practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. They have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.

“Spinal manipulation,” also called “chiropractic adjustment,” is one of the most commonly performed therapeutic procedures. Its purpose is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have restricted movement as a result of a tissue injury. Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as a motor vehicle accident or improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal posture for an extended period of time. In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function. The chiropractic adjustment can restore mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, enabling tissues to heal.

Our Chiropractors Offer Back Pain Treatment & More

In many cases, such as lower back pain, chiropractic care is often the “go-to” method of treatment. Headaches often have their cause in the spine itself, and chiropractic care during pregnancy can be an amazing drug free solution to pain, and can even decrease the pain that can occur during delivery.

Our chiropractors may assess you through clinical examination, laboratory testing, diagnostic imaging, or other diagnostic interventions to determine when chiropractic treatment is appropriate or when it is not appropriate. When chiropractic care is not suitable for your condition or your situation warrants co-management in conjunction with other members of the health care team, we can refer you to the appropriate health care provider.
