The chiropractic system of therapy is designed to place focus on the structure of the body. This is with the spine being the main focal point. Chiropractors manually manipulate the body’s structural alignment in order to reduce pain while simultaneously improving function. This allows the body the opportunity to finally heal itself.
While the primary aspect of chiropractic is spinal manipulation, chiropractic care can also include other approved treatments, including manipulative or manual therapies, posture and exercise, and ergonomic enforcement (making sure your gate and sit are proper to limit strain). Chiropractors work in conjunction with primary care doctors, pain experts, and surgeons to treat patients dealing with pain.
The most positive research on chiropractic therapy has focused on low back pain and spinal manipulation to correct it. The American College of Physicians Low Back Pain Guide recommends spinal manipulation along with acupuncture, massage, and heat.
Chiropractic adjustments may also help people with other musculoskeletal-related pains.
Spinal manipulation is a generic phrase used to describe any kind of therapeutic movement of the spine. Usually, it involves the usage of quick strong pressure on a joint seated between two vertebrae of the spine.
In addition to manual spinal manipulation, your chiropractor may also advise you in regard to altering your posture and biomechanics. They may also suggest other treatments and techniques.
The ultimate goal of chiropractic is to help alleviate pain and help patients better manage their condition at home.
