Chiropractic is a form of alternative medical treatment that focuses on manual therapy to assist the body in healing itself. Chiropractors like Dr. Andrew Harrison and his team at the Harrison Chiropractic Center serving Northern Illinois and Southeastern Wisconsin know that a ‘whole person approach’ can reduce pain and improve your overall quality of life.
What To Expect
You can expect your first appointment with a chiropractor like Dr. Harrison to be reasonably straightforward and consist of two parts: taking a complete medical history and conducting a thorough musculoskeletal exam. If necessary, x-rays will be requested. This will allow your chiropractor to create a unique and strategic plan to treat the symptoms and, if possible, the underlying cause.
Types of Treatments
Chiropractic is a broad field, and it describes several types of treatment that may be available to you. At the Harrison Chiropractic Center, Dr. Harrison and his team offer state-of-the-art therapies including
- Spinal manipulations and adjustments to the musculoskeletal system using the Palmer Package
- Cervical and lumbar decompression
- Electrical muscle stimulation
- Ultrasound therapy
- Intersegmental traction

There are treatment options for those suffering from acute and chronic pain, whether due to repetitive task injury at work, a sports or dancing injury, or even trauma from an auto accident. There are also treatment options for acute and chronic conditions that are not injury-related but cause pain. Your treatment plan may include several treatment types where necessary, and you may require repeat visits to maximize effectiveness.
