What is chiropractic?
Chiropractic care is a natural approach to healing that includes preventing, diagnosing, and treating disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, as well as the impact these disorders have on general health. Chiropractors generally focus on joint dysfunctions/subluxations with an emphasis on manual therapy, including joint adjustments and manipulation. These adjustments and manipulation of the affected tissues and joints result in restored mobility, thereby relieving muscle tightness and pain and allowing the tissues to heal. We may also recommend chiropractic treatment to complement treatment of other existing medical conditions by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition.
What does a chiropractor do?
A chiropractor, or doctor of chiropractic, is trained in broad diagnostic skills and is qualified to recommend rehabilitative and therapeutic exercises, as well as to provide dietary, nutrition, and lifestyle counseling. They practice a hands-on, drug-free approach to healthcare and wellness, and they may assess patients through diagnostic imaging, laboratory testing, clinical examination, or other methods to determine whether chiropractic treatment is appropriate. Based on this analysis, the chiropractor will either suggest a personalized treatment plan to correct the dysfunctions/subluxations or refer the patient to another appropriate healthcare provider.
