The term “Chiropractic” combines the Greek words cheir (hand) and praxis (practice) to describe a treatment that is administered by hand. It’s an alternative, non-invasive approach that focuses on the treatment of mechanical disorders of the muscles, joints, bones and nerves of the body. The goal of Chiropractic care is to tie all the above together in a functional way. The clinician that treats these ailments is known as a Chiropractor. They are skilled in hands-on healthcare, specializing in manual adjustments. Chiropractic treatment often makes use of spinal manipulation techniques to treat headaches, tiredness, or discomfort in other parts of the body.
During the initial visits, Chiropractors usually take a health history and perform a physical examination, with a special emphasis on the spine. This may also include joint mobilizations, muscle release therapy, therapeutic exercise, nutritional counseling and recommendations for injury prevention strategies and lifestyle changes to help you achieve your optimal wellbeing.
Chiropractors may combine the use of spinal adjustments and other manual therapies with several other treatments and approaches such as:
- Heat and ice
- Electrical stimulation
- Relaxation techniques
- Rehabilitative and general exercise
- Counseling about diet, weight loss, and other lifestyle factors
- Dietary supplements.
How to be safe:
No part of your body escapes the dominance of your nervous system. Even the slightest malfunction of your spine may alter the regular transmission of nerve impulses, preventing that portion of your body from responding optimally. Below are some strategies to help you get the most benefit out of your Chiropractic treatment:
- Ask about the chiropractor’s education and licensure.
- Mention any medical conditions that you have, and ask whether the chiropractor has specialized training or experience in the condition for which you are seeking care.
- Tell the chiropractor about any medications and dietary supplements that you take.
- Give your Chiropractor a clear picture of the other approaches you use to manage your health conditions.
