What is Chiropractic?

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is an effective health care treatment method that treats disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system. Doctors of Chiropractic diagnose and manipulate misalignments of the joints in one’s body. Chiropractic care is used often to treat back pain, neck pain, headaches, TMJ, and pain in the joints of the arms and legs.

What is an “adjustment”?

A chiropractic adjustment is a joint manipulation that a chiropractor uses to restore joint mobility by giving the body a controlled force into the joints. By manipulating the joints in the spine, the body starts to experience less pain and loosens up the muscles.

Is chiropractic care safe?

Chiropractic treatments generally do not hurt and they are very safe. Chiropractic is the least invasive health care system that will help your body to achieve optimal health. You may experience soreness and some discomfort the next day, but that subsides within several hours. This happens because your body has to adapt to the joints being aligned properly. This is the same idea when you have not exercised in a long time and your muscles hurt the next day.

How long do I need chiropractic care?

Depends on your condition. If you recently suffered from an injury, you may need to come in often. When your pain level significantly decreases, you will be put on maintenance care so your body will continue to receive the benefits of chiropractic care.
