What is Chiropractic Practice?
Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on our general health. Chiropractic care is used to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.
How does it work?
Doctors of Chiropractic (chiropractors) practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. Chiropractors recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, and also lifestyle consultation. Chiropractors' procedure is “spinal manipulation”.
Who should approach chiropractic therapy?
People with joints problems. The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become restricted in their movement. People with tissue injury. Tissue injury that 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.
