Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the joints in your spine, muscles, nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic care is a drug free, hands-on approach for pain relieve and promotes optimal healing in your body. Chiropractic is used most often to treat back pain, neck pain, headaches, shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and hip pain.
Doctors of Chiropractic- often referred to as chiropractors or chiropractic physicians- practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.
The most common therapeutic procedure performed by doctors of chiropractic is known as “spinal manipulation,” also called “chiropractic adjustment.” The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled forced into joints that have become hypomobile – or restricted in their movement – as a result of a tissue injury. Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal posture for an extended period of time. In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function for the sufferer. Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal. Spinal adjustments usually bring immediate pain relief and can have long lasting effects.
Chiropractic care is so important to your body for many reasons. One main reason why chiropractic care is so important even if you are not in pain is because a chiropractic adjustment stimulates and affects your nervous system. This is why patients often report improvement in area such as allergies, asthma, headaches, ear infections, bed wetting, and pregnancy to name a few.
