Chiropractic Adjustment in Orinda CA

No one should have to suffer from pain (whether chronic, or due to a flare-up/injury). Chiropractic Adjustment can be a very healing treatment option for patients and the Orinda Chiropractic Center is ready to help!


What is a "chiropractic adjustment"?

Pain and inflammation can often be caused by the body having various misalignments, particularly in joint areas where several bones and muscles are working together to execute a task. A professionally trained and skilled chiropractor can diagnose these misalignments. Using manual, controlled pressure, a chiropractor is able to re-align the body to get it back to working in the way it was designed to.


When should I consider a chiropractic adjustment?

If you suffer from any number of conditions, you might benefit from chiropractic care. Among some of the conditions most commonly treated by chiropractors are:

  • Back/neck injury or pain
  • Night-time teeth grinding or jaw clenching
  • Joint injuries such as runner's knee, tennis elbow, or repetitive stress injuries
  • Muscle spasms, inflammation, or flare-ups
  • Reduced mobility in an area due to muscular pain

Chiropractic care can work well in conjunction with orthopedic care, or physical therapy. If you are rehabilitating your body after an injury, a chiropractor might be able to provide the pain relief you need in order to help your body work its best once more.


What should I expect from a chiropractic adjustment?

Since every patient is different, it is difficult to give one standard answer for this question. Expect that a trained chiropractor will ask you to walk, stand, sit, and perform simple tasks related to your injury (if you are able). This will be to help the chiropractor diagnose what, precisely, is going wrong. Expect that the chiropractor will gently explore the area around the injury in order to better diagnose it. Expect that you will be laying or sitting on a chiropractic table while you receive treatment.

Wear clothing that allows you to move and is able to expose the injury sight. If this is impossible, your chiropractor may ask you to change into a medical gown when you arrive at the office.


What should I know before I walk in?

  • Be prepared to answer questions about the injury/condition; when did it first occur? How frequently does it flare up? How dramatic are your flare ups and what is your pain level now?
  • Be ready to communicate with your chiropractor. Different bodies will experience physical sensation differently; be ready to say if something is uncomfortable to you or intolerable to you. Your chiropractor should be able to adjust your treatment as necessary.
  • Be ready to create a treatment plan; how often can you come into the office? Will you be able to continue certain treatments (ice, heat, stretching) at home?
  • Understand that everything in your body is connected; just because your injury happened in your lower back doesn't mean that this is the only part of you effected by the injury. Your chiropractor may need to examine areas seemingly unrelated; this is normal.

“It is so comforting to know I have Kevin to 'keep me in line' and help me when I overdo it. Kevin and Isabel show not only great concern and compassion for their patients, they are also so wonderful about accommodating us and making sure our needs are met. ”

“Kevin Wong is an amazing doctor. He has been able to 'fix' things on me that other doctors told me I would 'just have to live with' for the rest of my life. I leave my visits to Orinda Chiropractic feeling refreshed, relaxed, and most importantly, free of pain!”

- L. Baqir

“I began seeing Kevin Wong 8 years ago after a vehicle accident. His gentle chiropractic ways and his caring attitude made a huge difference to me. I always feel that Dr. Wong is looking out for my health and goes the extra step whenever it is necessary such as fitting me in when all of a sudden my neck or back starts to give me trouble.”
