What is Chiropractic Care?
Why do we all need chiropractic care? Chiropractic physicians or Chiropractors use hands-on spine manipulations called adjustments, as well as other techniques, exercises and therapies to improve the alignment of the spine. The idea being that proper alignment of the body’s bone, joint, and muscle structure – especially the spine – will reduce stress on the nervous system and allow the body to heal itself without the need for painful surgery and the harmful effects of pain medication. Manipulation can be used to regain mobility in joints that have become restricted from injuries triggered by a traumatic event like falling, an auto accident or even from the repetitive stress caused by sitting at a desk for long periods of time. Chiropractic care is commonly used as a pain relief alternative for back, neck, muscle and nerve pain and often prevents surgery and the overuse of pain medication. Chiropractic is also frequently used for overall physical wellness and prevention as well as in conjunction with conventional medicine.
A chiropractic physician first requires a health background and history to learn more about your current state of health. This is followed by a thorough physical examination where the use of diagnostic tests or diagnostic imaging to find out if the available treatment methods are right for you. Then the doctor will create a diagnosis and present you with treatment options that are based on your goals and your current health. The treatment plan may involve a number of therapies where the physician manually adjusts the joints of the spine and prescribes other appropriate methods and practitioners to help improve your spinal alignment and elevate your level of health.
Many chiropractic physicians also incorporate dietary and nutritional support programs and fitness classes to stabilize weight for further reduction of symptoms and improvement of overall health. The goals of chiropractic care range from pain relief to the restoration of function and overall health, as well as the prevention of unhealthy posture that leads to pain and accelerated aging.
