What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care refers to the medical treatment provided by chiropractors. Chiropractors focus on treating both pain and other problems through the use of spinal alignment treatment.
While no two chiropractors are the same, some of the issues that are treated with chiropractic care include:
- Lower back pain
- Chronic pain
- Neck pain
- Sports injuries
- Spinal disc problems
- Arm pain
- Leg pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
While these are the most commonly addressed problems, some chiropractors believe that spinal alignment can have other positive health benefit as well. This includes the treatment of depression, fatigue and autoimmune diseases.
How Does Chiropractic Care Work?
The most common form of chiropractic care is the spinal alignment. This is most often performed with a special chiropractor's table that is padded to best facilitate treatment. During the alignment:
- The chiropractor analyzes the joints and bones for tension.
- Utilizing swift, quick movements to the joints, the chiropractor realigns what was out of place (more than one treatment may be necessary).
- During these movements, “cracks” or “pops” are often heard. This is completely normal and natural.
Most chiropractors seek to cause as little pain as possible during an alignment, though some minor issues are to be expected. Most often people feel sore for a few days after receiving a treatment, but this usually subsides.If pain remains seek professional medical attention.
Alignment is the most popular chiropractic treatment, but many chiropractors choose to combine it with other methods. Some other forms of chiropractic care include:
- Heat treatment
- Ice packs
- Strength conditioning
- X-ray diagnosis
- Weight loss plans
- Relaxation techniques
- Exercise plans
No two chiropractors offer the exact same treatment, although many offer a combination of those listed above. The only way to determine the right chiropractic care is to speak with a trained medical professional.
