At Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) at Southwestern Regional Medical Center (Southwestern), we understand the need to provide a care plan personalized to every patient. One supportive therapy that might be beneficial for cancer patients experiencing aches, pains or muscle tension is chiropractic care. Chiropractors at our Tulsa, Oklahoma, cancer center are licensed doctors who use non-invasive manual procedures to restore balance to the spine, muscle and joints of the body. Chiropractors at our Tulsa hospital work closely with your medical oncologist and the rest of your care team to help reduce stress on the nervous system without the use of drugs or surgical treatment.
John W. Sibley, DC, is one of the chiropractors at Southwestern who provides care to patients as part of a multi-disciplinary approach. Dr. Sibley joined Southwestern’s chiropractic team in January 2009. Through spinal manipulation and chiropractic adjustment, he strives to help patients through a hands-on approach. The controlled force of various chiropractic techniques may help improve movement and functionality to the spine or other joints in the body that have become restricted or misaligned.
Chiropractors use a variety of techniques to restore alignment to the body. The various chiropractic methods used at our Tulsa hospital include hands-on adjustments, stretching, electrical stimulations of the muscles, heat, ice and special instrument use. The goals of chiropractic care vary, depending on your needs, the symptoms you may be experiencing and your treatment plan. When you receive chiropractic care, the chiropractors at Southwestern in Tulsa, Oklahoma, will monitor your scans and X-rays, and may request lab tests to ensure the safe delivery of care. Chiropractic care may be helpful for many, but it is not an option for everyone. Our chiropractors also work closely your care team and are committed to providing chiropractic sessions that are safe and appropriate, to help you feel better and maintain a good quality of life.
