What is Chiropractic?

What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic employs a natural method of health care that focuses on treating the causes of physical problems, rather than just their symptoms and does so in a non-surgical, non-invasive, and drug-free method. Chiropractic views the individual as an integrated being, focusing on spinal health as the key to overall health and wellness.
What Kinds of Conditions Does a Chiropractor Treat?
Back and neck injuries jump to mind when chiropractic is mentioned. However, chiropractic has enjoyed success in treating a wide range of health problems. Some of these conditions are:
  • Headaches
  • Arm/Leg Pain
  • Tendonitis
  • Sports Injuries
  • Muscle Spasms
  • Numbness/Tingling
  • Stress and Fatigue
What does a Chiropractor do?
Your Doctor of Chiropractic will perform an examination to diagnose the problem. The examination may include range of motion, strength, orthopedic, neurological and, when indicated, x-rays or other imaging tests to arrive at a diagnosis. The doctor will perform an examination of your spine and muscle system to evaluate structure and function. This examination is what makes a chiropractic approach different from that of other health care practitioners.
How does your Doctor of Chiropractic treat you?
Chiropractic care is known for its use of the adjustment, sometimes called manipulation. The adjustment is given by hand and consists of placing the patient on a table and applying pressure, using specialized techniques, to the area of the spine that are misaligned or not moving properly through their range of motion. The purpose of the adjustment is to restore joint mobility/alignment, relieve associated muscle and nerve tension and assist healing. Restoring joint mobility is the key because joint immobility is the primary factor, which allows for the development of spinal degeneration. Besides the adjustment, your Doctor of Chiropractic may use therapies such as electric stimulation, ultrasound, moist heat, ice and massage.
