ChiropractorSan Francisco, CA

With chiropractic treatment, patients can receive customized care that meets their specific needs. Since physical injuries do not always display visible signs, it is crucial to seek a professional who knows how to identify and treat the source of the pain. A chiropractor is a medical professional with the medical degree, skills and knowledge to provide treatment for health issues related to the musculoskeletal system.

Chiropractor services are available at SC Sports Therapy in San Francisco and the surrounding area. As a chiropractor, Dr. Steven Adams, DC can provide treatment to the back, neck, shoulders and more. While treatment often involves hands-on treatment, one of the main goals is to ensure the proper alignment of the spine.

Chiropractic treatment

As a chiropractor, Dr. Steven Adams, DC is a medical practitioner, who specializes in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of issues related to the musculoskeletal system. We can help patients to find lasting relief from the pain that continues to hinder their mobility and quality of life.

Even though some patients will know the accident or cause of the injury, other patients will be unsure. With this in mind, our team can help to determine the source of the pain and customize a solution. In some cases, the cause may be a weakened or damaged muscle or joint.

Benefits of chiropractic treatment

We offer a wide range of services, with a team of trained professionals able to guide the patient through the procedure. There are many benefits to seeking chiropractic treatment. Benefits of our chiropractic treatment include:

  • Improved health overall
  • Pain relief and management
  • Faster recovery time
  • Improved mobility and function
  • Increased blood circulation
  • The benefits vary from person-to-person and largely depend on one’s lifestyle. Those who enjoy being physically active or participate in a sports activity will often see increased performance and more enjoyable experience while moving. People who sit for long periods each day at work may feel more comfortable after chiropractic care and thus are more productive throughout the day.

    Chiropractor treatment

    As a chiropractor, we can treat a wide range of physical injuries and pain-related issues. Far too often, people will attempt to manage this type of pain with over-the-counter-painkillers and rest. While these options are effective for temporary relief and mild injuries, they will not provide long-term relief.

    Chiropractic treatment can enhance the healing process instead of merely masking the symptoms. Several issues that we treat with chiropractic treatment include:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Herniated disc
  • Posture issues
  • Sports injuries
  • The specific types of treatment depend mainly on the exact issue the patient is struggling with. For example, a patient with chronic back pain might benefit from a chiropractic adjustment or physical therapy to strengthen the back muscles.

    In other instances, acupuncture and cupping therapy might be the most effective form of treatment for chronic pain and mental stress. Other types of treatment include massage therapy, applying heat/ice, ultrasound and mobilization.

    How the process works

    On your first visit, we conduct a thorough examination to diagnose the exact issue. In the diagnostic stages, we consider all of the documented symptoms, how long the symptoms have been present and note any issues during the physical examination. Once we gain a better understanding of the exact cause for the signs, we then determine the most effective and efficient way to treat the condition.

    In some instances, consistent manipulative treatment, along with minor lifestyle and diet changes are enough to address the complications. Although more severe issues might require additional treatment methods. Following the treatment, our team will focus on preventing any symptoms from returning in the future. This process can include making lifestyle changes to one's level of physical activity, diet, nutrition and more.

    Since the spine connects much of the body, a physical injury in the back can negatively impact multiple areas of the body. By making these changes, people can boost their overall health. We can help patients live a lifestyle that promotes healthy blood flow for proper muscle and joint health.
