Common Problems We Treat
Chiropractic treatments are non-invasive and drug-free. This means you won’t have to worry about the side effects that can come with surgery or medication. Chiropractic is is widely recognized as one of the safest, drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of back pain, headaches, neck pain, and other similar complaints.
Furthermore, chiropractors often take a holistic approach to health, looking at the whole body rather than just the area where symptoms are present. This can lead to more comprehensive care and potentially better long-term outcomes.
In addition, chiropractic care can help improve joint function and overall mobility.
Chiropractic is a form of healthcare profession that is based on the idea that your body can heal itself with the help of specific hands-on manipulations from a trained professional, chiropractor. Chiropractic treatment often includes manual therapy, often involving spinal manipulation.
Founded by Daniel David Palmer in 1895, chiropractic treatment has become the most popular type of alternative medicine in the world. The term “chiropractic” was coined by combining the Greek words cheiro (hand) and praktikos (doing or action), combined to mean “done by hand”.
Chiropractic essentially works by making adjustments to the spine to improve its alignment and function, which in turn helps the body to function better.
During a typical chiropractic adjustment, your chiropractor places you in specific positions to treat affected areas. Often, you’re positioned lying facedown on a specially designed, padded chiropractic table. The chiropractor uses his or her hands to apply a controlled, sudden force to a spinal joint, pushing it beyond its usual range of motion.
This process is also known as spinal manipulation. You may hear popping or cracking sounds as your chiropractor moves your joints during the treatment session. The goal of spinal manipulation is to improve spinal motion. This means making sure the spine moves properly without any restrictions.
By improving spinal motion, chiropractic care can also improve your body’s physical function. This is because the spine plays a crucial role in the functioning of the nervous system, which controls every cell and organ in your body.
