We treat patients through manual adjustments, spinal manipulation, lifestyle recommendations, soft-tissue therapies, nutritional advice, and fitness coaching.
Chiropractors devote themselves to the reduction of patients’ pain and the improvement of their bodies’ functionality. These professionals also educate patients on ways to maintain their own health through proper exercise, therapies and ergonomic practices to keep debilitating pain at bay.
What is Chiropractic Therapy?
Considered widely as complementary or alternative medicine, chiropractic is a health-care profession focused specifically on the spine and the joints in the body, and how these connect to the nervous system. “Chiropractic” means “done by hand”. Adjustments are used by chiropractors to bring back impaired joint function and to support the nervous system. Patients receive help with maintaining optimal health while skipping over the use of needless surgery or drugs. Roughly 50 million Americans consult with a chiropractor every year, in order to treat neck pain, lower back pain, headaches, repetitive strains, accident injuries, sports injuries, and arthritic pain.
What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?
An adjustment of this type involves a controlled and specific application of force to the affected joint, with the aim of restoring mobility and function. The issue may have been caused from stress, overexertion, a fall, or an accident. Left untreated, this could leave the patients with pain or immobility in the spine or joints. Not to mention the impact can damage the nervous system, tissue, and other areas. Chiropractic adjustments can alleviate pain, facilitate better movement, and boost performance.
Beliefs and Goals of Proactive Chiropractic
Focusing on the close link between the nervous system and the spine, chiropractic practice upholds the following beliefs.
- The nervous system can sustain damage from structural and biomechanical derangement of the spine.
- There exist many conditions where chiropractic treatment is capable of restoring the spine’s structural integrity, easing pressure on sensitive neurological tissue, and as a result, improving the individual’s health.
- Normal spinal mobility is considered the ideal outcome, and achieving this can lead to a drop in spinal nerve irritation, as well as restored reflexes
