About Chiropractic, Acupuncture and Massage Therapy
You will often hear people say that chiropractors crack, pop, and snap, back pain away, but there is much more going on than most patients realize. Chiropractic doctors spend as much time or more in the classroom as medical doctors do, and they are considered primary care physicians.
Chiropractic is a form of care that works with the musculoskeletal and nervous system. Chiropractic physicians are skilled to treat and diagnose injuries involving the joints, muscles, and nervous system.
Chiropractic care is used most often to treat problems including back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints and muscles of the arms or legs, headaches, sciatica, and more! Chiropractic is also safe and effective for infants and children. Conditions such as colic, digestive problems, ear infections, asthma, bed- wetting, back pain, and headaches can be helped. Chiropractic is also beneficial and safe for pregnant women.
The most common therapeutic procedure performed by a chiropractor is known as "spinal manipulation," also called "chiropractic adjustment." The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile - or restricted in their movement - as a result of a tissue injury. Tissue injury 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 patient. Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal.
New patients start with a consultation discussing their current and past health issues. This is followed up with a physical exam. After going through these steps, the doctor will use the information to determine a diagnosis and set a treatment plan.
