Are you experiencing back or neck pain? The most common reason for disability and missed work is back and neck pain. It is estimated that more than 80 percent of all working adults will experience back pain at least once during their lifetime. Chiropractic care is a non-invasive, drug-free approach to healing joint and soft tissue injuries.
Chiropractic care can help you lower your pain and improve your overall health. It is considered conservative care, which is the least invasive choice for medical care. The core treatment is called a spinal manipulation or adjustment. The spinal adjustment is used to push the vertebrae into its proper position.
When the vertebrae or extremity joints are out of alignment, they move incorrectly. This puts pressure on the surrounding soft tissues, causing pain. Misalignments of the spine and joints can also interrupt the signals sent from the brain through the nervous system. Spinal adjustments can correct these misalignments, improve the range of motion of the joint and lower pain and inflammation.

Conservator Care with our Chiropractor Serving San Diego and Mission Valley
Our chiropractor, Dr. Nicholas DiSabatino, serving San Diego and Mission Valley can diagnose and treat your musculoskeletal injuries and reduce your back and neck pain. We utilize a very thorough diagnostic process that involves performing a physical examination and taking a medical history. We may also recommend digital images, which allow us to accurately view the injured area. These diagnostic tools tell our chiropractor if spinal or extremity joint adjustments would be right for you. If they are, a comprehensive treatment program will be created to reduce your pain, heal your injury and prevent future injuries.
The first step in all of our treatment programs is to reduce your overall pain. By reducing your pain, we are beginning the healing process and improving the quality of your life. Once your pain is under control, we will focus on healing the underlying injury. When the soft tissues and joints are injured, they send pain signals to the brain. Those signals do not stop until the injury is healed.
After your injury is healed, we focus on helping you reduce your risk for future injuries. This typically means scheduling periodic appointments to assess your pain and perform a spinal adjustment if you need one.
There are no side-effects associated with spinal or extremity joints adjustments. They can be used in conjunction with other forms of traditional ad holistic treatment options. The most common complaint is soreness, which should resolve itself within 12 to 24 hours.
Our chiropractor serves both San Diego and Mission Valley. To schedule an appointment, call us at 619-322-4626.
