What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a distinct branch of the health care professions. Chiropractors doctors are trained professionals who specialize in the evaluation and treatment of disorders primarily involving the nerves, muscles, bones and joints. Chiropractic care is commonly used to treat conditions like joint pain, neck pain, back pain, headaches, and musculoskeletal disorders.
Chiropractic doctors perform detailed histories, physical examinations including orthopedic and neurological tests, laboratory testing, and diagnostic imaging to formulate a successful plan of action to effectively treat your condition.
Chiropractic is recognized as a safe, non-invasive treatment modality for a variety of injuries and disorders. Chiropractors are generally very conservative in their approach to treating pain and their techniques have become the most widely accepted and most effective alternative treatment of back pain. Typical treatments include exercise, joint mobilization, application of modalities such as heat, ice, electrical muscle stimulation and ultrasound. One main objective of care is the correction of subluxations (misalignments of the vertebrae) in the spine that place pressure on spinal nerves, leading to shoulder, back, and neck pain.
The majority of your treatment will happen in the doctor’s office, but your chiropractor may have some suggestions of stretches, relaxation exercises, physical activities, or adjustments to make at home to improve your symptoms. These may include things like changing your posture or sleeping position.
