Chiropractic care is a holistic system of healthcare that resolves many types of pain and helps you become healthier from head to toe. Please enjoy Dr. Michael Soloman’s FAQ, and if you have more questions, call us in Central Phoenix, AZ at 602-254-2454.
What is chiropractic care and how does it work?
This healthcare discipline brings your brain and body into harmony and good health through optimal spinal alignment. Stress, injury, poor ergonomics and posture habits pull vertebrae out of correct alignment, which can aggravate many systems in the body; when nerves traveling from the spinal cord between the vertebrae are pinched, they cannot properly communicate or direct function in the area of the body they are responsible for. This leads to pain and dysfunction. Our chiropractor coaxes the spine back into alignment with extremely gentle, precise, stress-relieving adjustments.
How does your chiropractor perform spinal adjustments?
Dr. Michael Soloman uses a gentle and effective technique called “Network Spinal Analysis.” Through careful spinal analysis and patient history, he identifies triggers and stress points in the spine. By applying gentle pressure to these points, energy and pressure are released. The spine gently reorganizes, accumulated stress dissipates and the patient will feel better. Spinal adjustment provides pain relief, stress relief and improves clarity, stamina, energy and boosts overall wellness.
What conditions do you treat?
Our chiropractor has been able to help people experience relief from back pain, neck pain, herniated discs, headaches and migraines. Dr. Soloman’s “entrainment” of the spine through gentle pressure on specific points triggers a wave of better breathing, spinal alignment and tension release that reduces the frequency and severity of the symptoms at their root (the spinal and nervous system), rather than covering them with painkillers.
What should I expect during an appointment with Dr. Soloman?
Appointments are very comfortable and relaxing. You will lie down on a specially-designed, padded table, fully clothed, while our chiropractor uses the Network Chiropractic technique to evaluate your spine, muscles, posture and breathing. This gives him the information necessary to know what points to press along the spine. He will also ask you to breathe, adjust your position and otherwise participate in your healing process. You will start to feel more relaxed, comfortable and alert during the process. Also, if there are elements of your lifestyle that are aggravating your spinal stress, he can advise you on ways to reduce these pressures when you are not in our office. Appointments generally last around 15-20 minutes.
Are your chiropractic adjustments painful?
Not at all. Network Spinal Analysis is extremely gentle and freeing. There are no popping or cracking sounds, or post-adjustment sore muscles. This form of chiropractic is known for its ability to reduce both pain and mind/body stress at the same time.
