What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic Care is mainly used to treat disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, which range from back pain, neck pain, headaches and pain in the joints of the arms or legs. Doctors of Chiropractic, practice a drug-free hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. With a complete understanding of your disorder, you’re ready for a chiropractic adjustment, clinically known as spinal manipulation. This is when the doctor will apply a controlled force into joints that have restricted movement to restore joint mobility. Continued visits to a chiropractor help retrain the supporting muscles and ligaments of your spine and alleviate further pain or discomfort. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.
Call your local chiropractor to schedule an examination and to jump start your road to better health, naturally.
