What is chiropractic care?
Chiropractic is primarily concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and management of neuro-musculoskeletal disorders and the effect they have on the health. The prime area of interest lies in the adjustment or manipulation of spine, other joints and soft tissue. In addition, treatment also includes exercises and nutrition counseling in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. The chiropractic approach to healthcare places emphasis on the normal musculoskeletal system in health and disease. Chiropractors acknowledge the close relationship between structural stability and internal function via the central and peripheral nervous system. The effect of the chiropractic treatment is to reduce pain, restore structural stability, decreased disc herniation/pinched nerves, and thereby enhance internal organ function. Balancing the ill effects of “pinched nerves” that cause migraines, neck and back pain, numbness in arms/legs, sciatica, scoliosis, is the primary goal of chiropractic healthcare.
What does a chiropractor do?
A chiropractor will first take a medical history from the patient, perform a physical examination, and may use lab tests or diagnostic imaging to determine if treatment is appropriate for your condition.
The treatment plan may involve one or more manual adjustments in which the doctor manipulates the joints, using a controlled, sudden force to improve range and quality of motion. Many chiropractors also incorporate nutritional counseling and exercise/rehabilitation into the treatment plan. The goals of chiropractic care include the restoration of function and prevention of injury in addition to back pain relief.
