What Is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care is typically a drug-free, non-surgical form of health care focused on employing chiropractic adjustment techniques to correct misalignments, relieve pressure from vertebrae/discs, reduce pain and inflammation, and help the body heal itself naturally – the goal being a restoration of proper nerve impulse and nutrient and water transmission.
What Is a Chiropractic Adjustment?
A chiropractic adjustment helps correct subluxations in the spine. During an adjustment, your chiropractic physician applies gentle force to the affected area, restoring proper position, motion, and nerve flow – safe and painless. Afterward, the vast majority of new patients feel pain relief and improved mobility. Done regularly, even in the absence of symptoms, chiropractic treatment aids the spine in becoming healthier and more flexible, and it can even slow the deterioration of the spine and discs.
What Health Conditions Does Chiropractic Adjustment/Care Treat?
Since we’re talking about the spine, as it relates to your overall central nervous system, there’s a pretty long list – arthritis, back pain, neck pain, scoliosis, stenosis, back pain, whiplash, and so on. Below we’ll briefly look at a few, but feel free to visit our Conditions Treated by Chiropractors page to dig deeper.
