What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic aims to improve health by restoring structure and function to the spine and other joints. Stress, accidents, overexertion, or other injuries may cause minor displacement and dysfunction (subluxation) of the spinal vertebra. When a vertebra is displaced, muscle tension and other mechanical irritation to the spinal nerves can result, causing pain (e.g., neck, back, headache) and impairing overall health.

Chiropractors evaluate the structure and function of the spine and its effects on the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. They help to restore these systems to proper function. The chiropractic adjustment is the primary treatment used on the affected spinal and extremity joints; there are various types of adjustment techniques.

Types of Care

Acute Care

Acute care treatment should follow soon after an injury to improve the healing of injured structures primarily to restore normal function, reduce swelling, muscle spasms, and give relief from pain. Treatment soon as possible after an injury maximizes the potential for full recovery.

Wellness Care

Wellness care treatment is usually without signs or symptoms. It is used to maintain and optimize the nervous system’s normal function. Regular chiropractic care is as important as proper diet and exercise.

As with any process, chiropractic care takes time to aquire its many health benefits.
