What conditions does chiropractic care treat?

Certain conditions affecting your musculoskeletal and nervous system may be treatable with chiropractic care. Chiropractic treatment reduces pain in your neck, shoulder, and back while helping to manage pain caused by headaches and joint problems. Chiropractic care treats existing conditions, but it works best as a preventative treatment before symptoms or pain develop. Dr. Shaevitz and the team at Superior Physical Medicine offer comprehensive evaluations to identify potential areas of concern on your body.

What are the best chiropractic treatment options?

The team at Superior Physical Medicine offers several chiropractic care treatment options to improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system disorders effectively and naturally, including:

Diversified adjustments

Diversified adjustments are used to improve spinal biomechanics. Following a thorough analysis of your spine, your Superior Physical Medicine provider identifies the malpositioned bones and administers one or more manual thrusts. You may hear a “popping” sound as the gas and fluids of the joint shift into alignment. The direction, speed, and depth of thrusts are chosen based on the team’s years of expertise.


The Thompson technique is a comprehensive analysis taken to adjust your full spine. You’re lowered into a horizontal position using a drop table to accurately measure leg length inequality. Meanwhile, the table offers “drop” pieces, support for each aspect of the spine. When the thrust is delivered to align your spine, each drop piece gives way to reduce the energy necessary for each particular spinal alignment.
