A chiropractor is a trained medical professional who sets the focus of care on neuromuscular and musculoskeletal issues centering around the spine. A chiropractor works to maximize the health of the body through spinal manipulation and adjustment, joint care, and related treatment procedures.
The scope of practice statutes usually addresses two separate areas of practice: diagnosis and treatment. The more substantial statutes permit a chiropractor to use any method of diagnosis that is taught in the chiropractic institutions.
A chiropractic adjustment is a specific spinal manipulation technique a chiropractor uses on the vertebrae to treat unusual joint placement (subluxation). An adjustment involves the use of hands-on manipulation along with other alternative therapies.
How often are you experiencing pain? This may not seem like a fair question. If you are experiencing pain in multiple areas, additional visits may be found very helpful. If your current pain is intense and debilitating, more visits may be needed to bring the healing that you seek.
Misconceptions have centered around the fact that chiropractic largely leaves out the need for medications. Physical therapy’s history has been more closely aligned with traditional medical practices. As a result, physical therapy may have greater associations with the use of medications in some locations. Yet, many physical therapists do seek to avoid the use of medications.
