Sebastopol Chiropractor Dr. Laura Polak, D.C. • Radiant Health Community Holistic Health Sebastopol
At Radiant Health our Chiropractic Service is a conservative treatment approach for injury rehabilitation and pain management. Chiropractic care is based on a simple principle: the spine is the body’s foundation and when the spine is correctly aligned, the body can function in a state of ease. When the spine is out of alignment, the body is at risk for injury, pain, illness, and other health problems. A spinal misalignment, like a herniated disc, may be caused by a sudden accident (e.g., sports injury, car accident) or occur slowly over time due to normal wear and tear. Radiant Health Chiropractic Care Services treat back pain, neck pain, headaches, whiplash injuries, and pain or injuries resulting from damage to the connective tissues and muscles.
As a conservative treatment, chiropractic care is a popular alternative to pain management medication and invasive surgery. Spinal manipulation and chiropractic care is generally considered a safe, effective treatment for musculoskeletal pain and injury. Research has shown that chiropractic care is helpful for treating acute back pain, neck pain and headaches. Additionally, chronic pain conditions like fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis respond positively to chiropractic treatments. While chiropractic care cannot “cure” either of these conditions, treatment can help alleviate symptoms and may reduce the need for certain medications.
During your first visit to Radiant Health, Sebastopol Chiropractor Dr. Laura Polak, D.C will conduct an initial interview and diagnostic exam. She will explain the principles of chiropractic care, our treatment philosophy, and general approach, record a full medical history, and discuss your current pain management and injury rehabilitation needs. Further tests, like a postural analysis, may be necessary to fully evaluate the extent of your injury. Based on the results of these tests and your chiropractic consultation, Sebastopol Chiropractor Dr. Laura Polak, D.C will create a custom treatment program. She will discuss your diagnosed condition, individualized plan, and the anticipated length of chiropractic care.
