Chiropractors use hands-on spinal manipulation and other alternative methods to properly align the body's musculoskeletal structure.
When this is achieved, especially with the spine, the body is better able to heal itself without surgery or medication.
What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic is primarily used for pain relief for muscles, joints, bones, and connective tissue, such as cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. It can be used in conjunction with conventional medical treatment.
What does a treatment plan look like
A chiropractor first takes a medical history, performs a physical examination, and may use lab tests or diagnostic imaging to determine if treatment is appropriate for your back pain.
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 coaching 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.
How can chiropractic care help you
Chiropractic care including spinal manipulation is considered a safe, effective treatment especially for acute low back pain, which can result from sudden injury in moving furniture or getting tackled in sport.
It is also effective in treating neck pain and headaches, and other causes of aches and pains. Conditions like osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia often respond to the moderate pressure used by chiropractors.
