Chiropractic

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care is a branch of neuromusculoskeletal medicine that focuses on noninvasive, natural solutions to pain relief and wellness support. Doctors of chiropractic, called chiropractors, have extensive training in anatomy, physiology, and manual therapies to relieve pain, improve physical function, and help patients overcome injuries and health issues.

Dr. Nutt and Dr. Rayner offer personalized chiropractic care to help you get out of pain and feel your best without the need for medications or invasive treatments.


When should I see a chiropractor?

Chiropractors are trained to diagnose and treat conditions related to your skeletal system, muscles, and nerves. Common conditions that chiropractors treat include:

  • Lower back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Headaches, including migraines
  • Joint pain
  • Muscle stiffness or soreness
  • Sports injuries
  • Herniated discs
  • Arthritis pain

Dr. Nutt and Dr. Rayner provide care that gets to the root cause of your issues, rather than masking your symptoms with medications.


What types of therapies does chiropractic include?

At The Wellness Institute of Dallas, Dr. Nutt and Dr. Rayner offer:

  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Soft tissue therapy
  • Nutritional counseling, including functional medicine
  • Functional neurology
  • Rehabilitation stretches and exercises
  • Lifestyle counseling

Depending on your condition, you may benefit from some or all of these therapies. Dr. Nutt or Dr. Rayner work with you to develop a treatment plan that’s beneficial for your condition or health goals.


What is a chiropractic adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment is a type of hands-on therapy used to restore motion in a joint and relieve pain. Chiropractic adjustments can be performed on any joint in the body, though they’re most commonly used for spinal problems.

During a chiropractic adjustment, Dr. Nutt or Dr. Rayner place their hands on either side of the affected joint and applies a quick, forceful push. You may feel or hear some popping or cracking, which is a release of naturally occurring carbon dioxide gas within the joint. Adjustments may cause mild discomfort, especially if you’re in pain before your adjustment, though you’ll often feel an immediate sense of relief and notice an improvement in your range of motion.


Are chiropractic adjustments safe?

Yes, chiropractic adjustments are a safe, drug-free option for treating lower back pain, neck pain, and headaches. The only reported side effect of chiropractic adjustments is mild soreness at the treatment site for one to two days. If this is the case for you, Dr. Nutt or Dr. Rayner may recommend ice or specific stretches to relieve your discomfort after treatment.
