What is Chiropractic Care?on Wednesday, March 27, 2019
Chiropractic care is considered an alternative treatment approach to taking pain-
Chiropractic care entails a series of hands-on adjustments to manipulate joints of the body. Depending on the particular method of care, your chiropractor will use either her hands or an instrument to restore or enhance joint function, resolve joint inflammation, and reduce a patient’s pain. Chiropractic manipulation is a highly controlled procedure that rarely causes discomfort. As a medical practitioner, a chiropractor is trained to adapt the procedure of care to meet the specific needs of each patient.
Conditions Treated by Chiropractic Care
Chiropractors treat patients of all ages for a wide range of health issues. The most common health issue that patients seek a chiropractor for is relief from pain—in particular, back pain, neck pain, and headaches. Chiropractors also care for patients who suffer from a wide range of injuries and disorders of the musculoskeletal system. These painful conditions involve the muscles, ligaments, and joints and often impact the nervous system, which can cause deferred pain and dysfunction distant to the region of injury.
Chiropractors also counsel patients on diet, nutrition, and exercise. They offer expertise in occupational and lifestyle modification and help patients adopt long-term goals for optimal health.
