Conditions We Treat

Understanding Chiropractic Conditions

Most people in Corona, CA, associate chiropractic with conditions of the spine, including lower, middle, and upper back pain. While chiropractors are experts at manipulating and aligning the spine to eliminate back pain, they also provide treatment for a range of different conditions. We have created a common list of conditions that chiropractors treat, but there are many others as well.

What Conditions Do Chiropractors Treat?

As a family chiropractor, Dr. Richter and the staff at Richter Family Chiropractic treat many different chiropractic conditions. These include:

  • Sciatica – which is a painful condition caused by inflammation or pressure on the sciatic nerve. It can cause weakness in the legs, shooting pains, and numbness or a tingling sensation across the hips, buttocks, and down the backs of the legs. 
  • Joint pain – arthritis or osteoarthritis can create joint pain as cartilage on the ends of bones degenerates. Chiropractic can help manage the pain and slow progressive damage. 
  • Scoliosis – s-curves of the spine add to problems throughout the lower and upper body. Chiropractic treatment and corrective exercises are effective in managing these issues. 
  • Carpal tunnel – wrist manipulation and physiotherapy can help manage this common condition and prevent future problems with the wrist and fingers. 
  • Herniated discs – damage to the discs can create pressure on the nerves, resulting in pains in the legs, arms, and body. Spinal adjustment relieves the pain without the need for surgical procedures. 
  • TMJ – TMJ pain can make it difficult to chew, talk, and move the jaw. Through chiropractic treatment, joint mobility can be restored. 
  • Migraines and headaches – tension and stress, as well as misalignment of the spine, can lead to migraines, cluster headaches, and chronic or acute headaches. Treatment with chiropractic offers a safe and effective option.

Doctor Richter and his team are always very professional and courteous. I appreciate the friendly environment and quick service and treatment. I had an x ray assessment when I first went in, which followed with a thorough consultation, and they provided me cervical roller and sent me exercise I can do to go with my treatment package, as well as electro shock therapies. I'm only about half way through and my back and neck pain has relieved a lot!

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any side effects or associated risks?

During more than twenty years of use by healthcare providers all over the world, very few side effects have ever been reported. Occasionally, some old injuries or pain syndromes may feel aggravated for a few days, as the healing response is more active after treatment.

How long does each treatment take?

The typical course of treatment is 10 minutes, depending on the area being treated. How often should a patient be treated? Acute conditions may be treated daily, particularly if they are accompanied by significant pain. More chronic problems respond better when treatments are received 2 to 3 times a week tapering to once a week, or once every other week, with improvement.

How many treatments does it take?

This depends on the nature of the condition being treated. For some acute conditions, 1-6 treatments may be sufficient. Those of a more chronic nature may require 10 or more treatments. Conditions such as severe arthritis may require ongoing periodic care to control pain.

How long before the results are felt?
You may feel improvement in your condition (usually pain reduction) after the very first treatment. Sometimes you will not feel improvement for a number of treatments. This does not mean that nothing is happening. Each treatment is cumulative and results are often felt after 3 or 4 sessions.
Does it hurt?

What does a treatment feel like? There is little or no sensation during treatment - occasionally one feels mild, soothing warmth, or tingling.
