Chiropractic is a health care profession that specializes in disorders of the musculoskeletal system, the nervous system and its effects to the patient’s health in general.
Chiropractic treatment is used to treat musculoskeletal problems such as headaches, neck pain, back pain, lower back pain and pain in the extremities, such as in the arms/shoulders and legs. The treatment is administered by a Doctor of Chiropractic. The process starts with a thorough examination, which includes a review of your past medical history, possible x-rays taken, followed by a diagnosis and prognosis. The patient is then put on a specific treatment plan, which may include spinal manipulation and include adjunctive/supportive therapies.
Chiropractic adjustment or spinal manipulation is done to restore normal joint function and take pressure off of the nervous system, that can be caused by normal daily pressure on the body or thru injury, such as sports injury, a slip and fall or an automobile accident. A Chiropractic adjustment is performed through manual application of a controlled force into the joints of the body that become out of alignment or restricted in their movement. Spinal mis-alignments can be caused by everyday activities, sitting in an awkward position, improper spinal posture, improper lifting or through an automobile accident or sports injury. Any of these scenarios can cause physical injury that can cause pain and discomfort.
Chiropractic care is safe and effective in treating these above conditions.
