Chiropractic care is an essential part of the care you get from us. To better understand how chiropractic helps, we have answered some of the most frequently asked questions by new patients.
What do chiropractors do?
A chiropractor is the best non-invasive caregiver for those who suffer from neuromusculoskeletal disorders (spine, joints, sports injuries, slipped disc or scoliosis). The goals with chiropractic are to identify the actual cause of pain and then provide targeted treatments to rectify the issue. Chiropractic treatments of neuromusculoskeletal disorders are holistic, involving principals of chiropractic, physiotherapy, physical therapy, and occupational therapy. The first step towards recovery through chiropractic care is an accurate diagnosis, which is followed by a targeted and comprehensive treatment plan. Precise diagnosis and detailed therapy plans are a critical part of care through physiotherapy combined with chiropractic in Setia Alam.
How do Chiropractors establish a Diagnosis?
The art and science of diagnosis are a critical part or education programs for the D.C degree (Doctor of Chiropractic). Chiropractors spend years in training to become the experts at diagnosing neuromusculoskeletal conditions. The educational curriculum is inclusive of orthopedic assessments, neurological assessments, radiological assessments (X-ray, MRI, CT scan) and laboratory assessments (blood and urine tests).
Diagnosis is the most critical aspect of care through physiotherapy and chiropractic in Setia Alam. The first step towards an accurate diagnosis is your present and past medical history. The chiropractor will ask you a series of questions regarding your condition and health. We encourage new patients to be honest and detailed in this process, as it allows the Doctor of Chiropractic to understand the cause of your pain or discomfort better.
After a thorough history taking, the chiropractor will then assess your condition through a physical examination. Depending on your health condition they may also perform orthopedic tests and neurological tests to confirm your diagnosis.
If needed, you will be referred for further investigation to assesses your condition better with diagnostic testing’s or imaging (e.g., X-ray, MRI, CT-scan) or blood tests. MRIs, X-rays, Scans or laboratory tests are at times essential to identifying the actual cause of pain or a given health condition. After the initial or working diagnosis is established, the chiropractor will formulate a targeted treatment plan to address the root causes of your health condition.
Targeted Treatment Plan that addresses the actual cause of your pain
After diagnosing your condition, our Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.), will then design a specific treatment plan for you and your health. Because patients can have unique health conditions, the Chiropractic Specialty Center® in Setia Alam offers condition-based treatments that are specific to the needs of our patients. In short, our treatments are tailor made for our patient’s particular needs.

We offer the best comprehensive treatment and treatment provides for the spine, joints and sports injuries.
Do Chiropractors help?
Yes, and here’s why. The best and most qualified non-surgical expert in diagnosis, treatment, and management of a neuromusculoskeletal disorder (muscles, ligaments, joints, nerves, nervous systems) is a chiropractor. Medical doctors and spine surgeons rely on medication, injections, and surgery. Also, they depend on physiotherapists. A chiropractor’s primary focus is to undo the actual cause of pain by repairing the damaged tissue.
That is the main reason why Chiros don’t prescribe medication. Medication and injections do little in repairing of the damaged tissue. Painkillers, muscle realtors and injections, for the most part, are designed to alleviate symptoms. Chiropractic care, on the other hand, is focused on correcting issues that caused the pain. Numerous published articles in reputable medical journals have found chiropractic care to be more productive and better targeted. However, when corrective chiropractic is coupled with clinical physiotherapy, the benefits are even better.
Chiropractic Specialty Center® provides the best and most comprehensive spine, joint and sports injury treatment in town. Best of all, the care you get from our Chiros is further enriched with the integration of clinical physiotherapy. In short, patients get the best of both worlds, when they opt for our collaborative treatments, of physiotherapy and chiropractic at Chiropractic Specialty Center®, Setia Alam.
What are the benefits of seeing chiropractic?
Simply put, corrective chiropractic care benefits you by identifying and fixing the cause of your pain. Chiropractic care is entrenched on holistic principals with precise treatments for the injured or malfunctional tissue. Procedures are either through hands-on methods, instruments or specialized chiropractic or physiotherapy treatment or therapy machines.
D.C.’s, or Doctors of Chiropractic, have educational backgrounds enriched in diagnosis, treatments, and management of patients with neuromusculoskeletal conditions (neurological, muscles, ligaments, and joints). By visiting a Chiropractic Specialty Center®, you are giving your body the best chance to heal without drugs, injections, or surgery. Our clinical teams of physiotherapists and chiropractors in Setia Alam are experts you need today. To conclude, the benefits of chiropractic care is targeted treatments that repair the actual damage: it is natural, safe and at least 2-4 times more effective than the traditional medical care.
Is the chiropractic adjustment safe?
Here at Chiropractic Specialty Center®, patient safety is our utmost priority. That is why we do our best to find the safest conservative treatment methods to help our patients recover and improve.
Many patients are unaware that there are various types of adjustment techniques. The most commonly shared online and in videos are known as manual manipulation. In our clinic, we carry out most of our adjustments using the activator technique, which is a safer and gentler approach of treatment. This is because patients with acute or severe pain may not be able to tolerate forceful adjustments. With the activator tool, our chiropractor in Setia Alam will perform specific and non-painful adjustments (treatment) to mobilize and move the joints that are affected.
Although there are some risks with any medical or therapeutic procedure, the activator chiropractic technique is by far the safest. It eliminates the need to place the patient in uncomfortable or compromising positions. Most adjustments can be done in a seated or lying down posture, which is comfortable for patients.
Our physicians will also assess you by using appropriate tests to ensure that that you qualify for the treatments that will be prescribed for you. the benefits of activator adjustments outweigh the risk a lot more than treatments commonly prescribed for patients with low back pain, neck pain, knee pain, headaches or slipped disc (e.g., Invasive surgical procedures and painkillers).
Is it normal to feel Pain after Adjustment or Treatments?
Pain is not normal. You should never experience pain with targeted corrective chiropractic treatments. Although rare, some patients may experience soreness similar to the soreness felt after a workout session. The soreness usually only occurs in the beginning stages of treatment. As adjustments are carried out to facilitate joint mobility and muscular rehabilitation, your body may need, first and second sessions. If the soreness persists, inform us, and our clinical teams will take appropriate precautions to avoid pain altogether.
Patients with significant muscle tightness are more likely to experience soreness after an adjustment. Moderate or severally spasmodic muscles (tight muscles) will have higher levels of lactic acid built up. An adjustment may lead to the release of the built-up lactic acid, leading to soreness. Another reason for slight soreness is the reintroduction of mobility into a restricted joint. A joint that has lost mobility may become sore after mobility is reintroduced.
If you ever experience any soreness from physiotherapy or chiropractic in Setia Alam, please make sure to inform a clinical team member immediately. Our motto is More Gain With No Pain.
How does chiropractic adjustment help?
The chiropractic treatment or “adjustment” aids in the proper function of your neuromusculoskeletal systems. The neuromusculoskeletal systems are made of your nerves, nervous systems, muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints, spinal discs, spinal nerves, and bones. The goal with the adjustments is to bring about stability in all these structures at once. The critical component of an adjustment is the therapeutic effect on the nervous systems and tissues in need of corrective care.
How often should you see a chiropractor?
The frequency of your care depends on the severity of your condition and your body’s ability to heal and respond to the treatment through physiotherapy combined with chiropractic in Setia Alam. In short, it is dictated by clinical findings and your overall health. Younger and stronger patients need less, while older and weaker patients may require more frequent treatments sessions.
For those with intense pain or severe conditions daily session may be needed. Less harsh conditions are correctable within 2 or 3 sessions of treatments per week. Mild disorders may require a couple or less than six (6) sessions. In short, the frequency of care provided is dependent on several factors:
- Severity of pain
- Duration or chronicity of the current condition
- The complexity of injury or health condition
- Overall health
- Your age
The frequency of care reduces as your progress. As your health improves, we will then reduce the rate of your visits to 1 (once) a week or less, depending on your condition. Maintaining your scheduled appointments is a vital part of your recovery. Our method of physiotherapy, rehabilitation, occupational therapy and chiropractic in Setia Alam focuses on repairing the actual cause.
Are chiropractic adjustments necessary?
Yes, the chiropractic adjustments are a central pillar for an effective treatment that targeted the actual cause of your spine, joints, sporting injuries, slipped disc or scoliosis. A chiropractic adjustment is the best means of alleviating compressed nerves and joints. In short, treatments by our chiropractors are an integral part of a comprehensive spine and joint care. Chiropractic Specialty Center® is a physiotherapy and chiropractic treatment center. Our collaborative method of care is perfect for those seeking healing therapy through comprehensive or holistic means. In short, you need both: chiropractic and physiotherapy. Not having one or the other, will impact the rate of your recovery. Chiropractic care is a vital part of patient treatment, as, without joint facilitation and mobilization, complete recovery becomes almost impossible.
Is it okay to see a chiropractor regularly?
Corrective chiropractic focuses on stabilizing the nervous systems and the musculoskeletal systems. So, regular chiropractic treatment goes a long way in helping your body stay strong, active and healthy. Most of us sit too long with poor posture (hunched forward), we depend far more on handheld devices which leads to weaknesses and instabilities in the neck, upper back, shoulder, and lower back regions. All that sitting with poor posture leads to damage due to the cumulative adverse impacts on the body. Even the strongest among us will eventually succumb to it. In short, regular care through our targeted physiotherapy and chiropractic in Setia Alam will help you live a healthier more active life.
Sitting for long hours at work or carrying heavy things at home, are all part of our usual day-to-day activities. However, those simple activities cause an increase in the degeneration process of your joints. These daily activities may not cause you immediate pain. However, you may start to feel the discomfort as the stresses in joint, and surrounding soft tissue accumulate over time.
Repetitive patterns of activity cause more loading and stress on the joints. For example, sitting for 6-8 hours increases the strain on your muscles, ligaments discs, and joints. Your intervertebral disc, which acts as a cushion and shock absorber for your lower back, has a pressure of 70mmHg. However, that pressure increases to 300mmHg or more when seated with poor posture. A targeted corrective chiropractic adjustment can depressurize joints, discs, and lessen the stress on muscles and ligaments. In short, you will benefit more when you opt for regular treatment through chiropractic in Setia Alam.

Does chiropractic work with sciatica?
Chiropractic is best for sciatica. A compressed sciatic nerve is an irritated and inflamed nerve, hence the term Sciatica. The goal with chiropractic is to alleviate the pressure of emerging sciatic nerve or the sciatic nerve itself.
The sciatic nerve is a large nerve that runs from the buttocks down the back of your leg. Sciatica occurs with the compression of the sciatic nerve. Nerve compression can occur in the lower back or the buttocks under the piriformis muscle. A misalignment in the lower spine or surrounding joints such as the pelvis (hip or sacroiliac joint) can produce symptoms of sciatica. These misalignments lead to abnormal motion or function of the spine, hips, pelvic or gluteal muscles. The chiropractic adjustments promote healthy and regular movements of the joint and reduce muscle tension. Thus, reducing the need for the piriformis muscle to compensate for the lack of joint motion.
Sciatica treatments by our corrective methods of physiotherapy combined with chiropractic in Setia Alam work better than those offered by others. We had helped thousands, even when others failed.
Which chiropractic technique is the best?
After years of research, studying, and practicing chiropractic and physiotherapy; we at Chiropractic Specialty Center® believe that the activator technique combined with physiotherapy is the most effective form of treatment for our patients.
Activator adjustment technique use an activator tool that releases a quick, gentle impulse onto specific targeted joints to induce an increase of joint mobility and space. Many patients are unaware that there are various types of adjustment techniques.
Even though the most commonly known technique for chiropractic adjustment is manual manipulation, it may not necessarily be the best option for every individual. In our clinic, we carry out most of our chiropractic adjustments using the activator technique, which is a safer and gentler approach of treatment. We use activator methods because patients with acute or severe pain may not be able to tolerate forceful adjustments. With the activator tool, our chiropractors perform specific and non-painful treatments to mobilize and move the joints that are affected.
Are there different types of chiropractic?
Yes, the approaches may differ depending on the method your chiropractor chooses to practice. At Chiropractic Specialty Center®, we believe that the activator technique is the safest and most effective in helping our patients recover.
- Activator technique: Using a handheld adjustment tool (Activator tool) that produces a gentle and non-painful impulse to mobilize and restricted joints.
- Gonstead technique: A hands-on and manual technique that often involves the chiropractor adjusting the joints such as the, lower back or pelvis region with force.
- Diversified and Gonstead Techniques: Diversified and Gonstead techniques often using a manual method of treatment where patients are positioned at the end range of joint motion and given a thrust using the hands of the practitioner.
Via the activator tool adjustments, our skilled chiropractors will use it to apply a gentle impulse of force to the restricted joints to promote movement in the joints. The adjustments do not cause any pain but will provide a lot of relief to patients. Many patients are unaware that there are various types of adjustment techniques. The most commonly known is the Gonstead or Diversified Technique. In our clinic, we carry out most of our adjustments using the activator technique, which is a safer and gentler approach of treatment. However, there are times where we may choose to treat patients with Diversified or Gonstead methods if indicated by your condition.
Are all chiropractors the same?
No, and here’s why. The chiropractic profession is a healthcare method that has been fast growing and developing for more than a hundred and thirty years. With this growth, emerged different approaches of chiropractic care. At Chiropractic Specialty Center®, we want to give our patients the best attention that they deserve.
