What Is Chiropractic?

Exactly what is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is known as a health care practice which concentrates on symptoms from the musculoskeletal system as well as the central nervous system, along with the effects of most of these disorders on our health and wellbeing. Chiropractic treatment is commonly used in most cases to deal with neuromusculoskeletal conditions, which includes although not restricted to back problems, neck discomfort, problem in the important joints from the arms or legs, as well as headaches.

Doctors of chiropractic perform an effective drug-free, hands-on approach to health care which includes patient evaluation, examination and treatment. Doctors of chiropractic possess wide-ranging diagnostic expertise and are generally educated to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative physical exercises, in addition to to provide nutritionary, dietary along with lifestyle guidance.

The most common therapeutic treatment carried out by chiropractors is referred to as “chiropractic adjustment” or “spinal manipulation.” The objective of adjustment or manipulation is to restore normal joint mobility and flexibility by manually applying a managed force to joints which have become hypomobile - or limited in their mobility - because of a tissue injury. Tissue injuries are often caused by a single traumatic event, for example incorrect lifting of a heavy object or by trauma.  Tissue injuries are also often caused by repeated tensions, for example sitting in an awkward position together with poor spinal position for a prolonged time period. In any event, damaged tissues go through physical and chemical changes that may result in inflammation and discomfort, as well as decreased function. Adjustment, or manipulation, restores the ability of the joints and tissues to move properly, therefore alleviating discomfort and muscle tightness, and allowing for damaged areas to heal and recover.
Chiropractic care is often the main method or treatment for conditions such as lower back pain and neck pain.  However, this is not always the case and the patient may have other health conditions that are being treated by other health care providers.  Chiropractic care is often used as a complementary or supportive treatment to alleviate the musculoskeletal elements linked to the other conditions.
Chiropractors may evaluate their patients by means of clinical examination, laboratory tests, diagnostic imaging and other diagnostic services to find out if chiropractic treatment is indicated.  Doctors of chiropractic will refer patients to the most appropriate health care providers whenever chiropractic treatment is not indicated for the patient’s condition, or the condition warrants co-management along with other health care providers.
