Chiropractic is a natural form of health care that uses spinal adjustments to correct spinal misalignments, to restore proper function to the nervous system and help the body to heal itself naturally.
Chiropractic is a drug free hands on approach where the chiropractor uses their hands to locate and adjust the joints of the spine and other joints of the body to relieve signs and symptoms of mechanical joint dysfunction.
Chiropractic doesn’t use drugs or surgery. Rather, a chiropractic spinal adjustment is the gentle application of a precise force to a specific part of the spinal segment to correct the misalignment, allowing normal nerve transmission and assisting your body to recuperate on its own.
Poor, inadequate or incorrect function of the spine can cause irritation of the nerves that control your posture and movement and causing pain. An adjustment improves the mobility of spinal segments and relieves pain by reducing the pressure on the involved nerve. Chiropractors are trained in locating and correcting vertebral misalignments to help the body with the heeling process.
Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the nervous system, the musculoskeletal system, and the effects that these disorders have on the general health.
Back pain may be the most common reason patients seek the advice of a chiropractor, but chiropractic adjustments accomplish far more. They help patients with acute or chronic issues, including:
- Cervicogenic headache (headache arising from the neck)
- Neck pain
- Acute and chronic backache (not arising from injury or accident)
- Sports injuries
- Joint pain including hip, knee and ankle pain
- Muscle spasms
- Shoulder, elbow and wrist problems arising from associated musculoskeletal conditions related to the spine
Chiropractic may also help with:
- Better overall function of muscles and joints
- Improved coordination and strength
- Better posture
- Less spinal degeneration
Because chiropractic healthcare is a holistic care, patients look to chiropractors for general wellness, too. In fact, preventive healthcare is among the fastest growing areas of chiropractic care.
