Chiropractic Care Q & A

What Exactly is Chiropractic Care? 

Chiropractic care is a healthcare approach that seeks to restore proper alignment of the spine. Chiropractors believe that optimal health and well-being can be achieved through a series of chiropractic techniques, without the need for drugs or surgery. The human spine plays a critical role in not only supporting the body but also in protecting the spinal column, which is the means through which sensory data is communicated to the brain. When the spine is not properly aligned, many different negative outcomes can result. Some of these ailments occur in areas far from the spine itself, which is why chiropractic care is effective for a wide range of medical issues. Chiropractors focus on treating the whole patient, versus addressing specific medical issues as they arise. Education forms a cornerstone of chiropractic practice, and patients can benefit from learning how to improve their fitness, posture, and flexibility, all of which can reduce the risk of injury.

Aside from Spinal Adjustments, What Other Techniques Are Utilized in Chiropractic Care? 

Chiropractors make use of cutting-edge technology and current research to create an individualized treatment plan for each and every patient. Spinal adjustment usually forms the foundation of that care, but a vast array of other tools are available. Chiropractic care includes treatments and techniques including traction, techniques for the elderly, pregnancy, pediatrics, instrument adjusting and services such as: wellness blood panels, nutrition, weight loss, vitamins and custom orthotic fitting.

What Conditions Can Be Improved With Chiropractic Care?

Many people consider chiropractic care primarily through the lens of treating back pain. In reality, however, chiropractic care can address many other issues throughout the body. Patients have found relief from persistent headaches, neurological conditions, high blood pressure, joint discomfort, neck pain, sciatica and many other issues. It is important to note that chiropractic care is a powerful way to maximize health and wellness throughout the course of a person's life, from infancy through retirement and beyond.
