What does a chiropractor do?
A chiropractor is a health professional that specializes in the health, movement, and optimization of the back and spinal area. While many people think of chiropractors as someone you go to simply to get your back “cracked” or adjusted, chiropractors can offer much more than that, and have a wide breadth of knowledge about the body’s composition and natural balances. They use this knowledge to help relieve pain, treat certain chronic conditions, and help you with persistent health concerns or issues.
While adjustments related to chronic pain and injury are among the main services chiropractors offer, our chiropractor at Hoboken Integrated Healthcare goes above and beyond just this. Dr. Canova can help you with infertility issues, pain and discomfort during pregnancy, tendonitis, sciatica, neck pain, chronic headaches, arthritis, pain and issues from auto or sports related injuries, and more.
What problems can a chiropractor help with?
While a chiropractor cannot do things like perform surgery or prescribe medications the way physicians can, they can play an important role in helping relieve pain and manage various health concerns. It’s important to keep in mind that not all chiropractors have the same types of specialties or knowledge. Our clinic director and chiropractor at Hoboken Integrated Healthcare, Dr. Joseph Canova, has more than thirty years of experience, and can address a wide variety of concerns, such as: chronic headaches, sciatica, arthritis, tendonitis, and injury-related issues.
Because our spine is such a crucial part of our body’s makeup, it can play a role in many problems beyond back pain or injury-related issues. A good example of this is with infertility. While many women struggling with infertility seek endocrinologists, obstetricians, or other specialists, they may not realize that a chiropractor can be a helpful addition to treating the issue at hand. Many women have spinal issues that can cause blockages in the body, including in the reproductive system, although they may not even be aware of this. With chiropractic care, which usually includes adjustments, some women have begun to see results with their infertility struggles. This is just one of the many examples of how chiropractors can be very helpful in treating persistent health concerns.
Do chiropractors take walk-ins?
Not all chiropractors may take walk-ins, but at Hoboken Integrated Healthcare, we are able to see a number of walk-in patients. For your convenience, it may be a good idea to give us a call first if possible, we will set you up with an appointment and see you as soon as we can.
Can you see a chiropractor without a referral?
In most cases, yes. At Hoboken Integrated Healthcare, you do not need a referral to come and see Dr. Joseph Canova, our clinic director and head chiropractor. Finding the right chiropractor can sometimes be difficult, as you want someone who will be able to treat you holistically. Dr. Canova is a chiropractor that can help treat and manage a variety of issues, from stress to injuries to infertility and more.
How often should you visit the chiropractor?
This really depends on your specific situation, and your health concerns and goals. Most patients will need at least a few initial appointments, to achieve the desired outcome and symptom relief, whereas others may need weekly or monthly visits for a longer period of time to manage their health issues. For example, someone recovering from a sports-related injury might have a longer treatment plan than someone needing a few adjustments for back issues related to their posture or a minor acute injury. At Hoboken Integrated Healthcare, we’ll work with you to determine the right course of treatment that will achieve the best results for you.
