What is Chiropractic?
A drug-free, non-surgical pain solution that has gained increased momentum over the years. Chiropractic care involves the chiropractor making, controlled adjustments to joints along the spine and musculoskeletal system with either their hands or small instruments in order to correct misalignment of the body and encourage the body’s natural methods of healing itself.
By applying this small force to the joints, the chiropractor works to increase the flexibility of joints that, for a variety of reasons, may have restricted movement. This could be the result of an injury, having poor spinal posture for an extended period of time and repetitive movements, among others. We also use complimentary physical therapists to facilitate treatment.
Who is a Good Candidate for Chiropractic?
Every individual responds to chiropractic treatment differently. At Integrated Medical Center of Corona, we treat the root cause of your problems, not just the symptoms. It will be determined in your consultation with one of our experienced health professionals whether this treatment is right for you or whether a different course of treatment would be better for your overall needs.

Does it Have Any Side Effects?
When performed by someone trained and licensed in chiropractic, this treatment is safe with minor adverse effects. After the first few sessions, patients sometimes feel fatigue, pain in the areas that were treated or headaches, which usually go away in a few days.
As the body’s joints, nerves and muscles are closely interconnected to all other areas of the body, repeated chiropractic sessions reportedly alleviate other ailments throughout the body as well as maintain alignment and pain management.
