LESS MEDICINE . MORE HEALING
Chiropractic is a licensed health care profession that emphasizes the body’s ability to heal itself. Chiropractic adjustment is a procedure in which trained specialists (chiropractors) use their hands or a small instrument to apply a controlled, sudden force to a spinal joint. The goal of this procedure, also known as spinal manipulation, is to improve spinal motion and improve your body’s physical function.
BENEFITS OF CHIROPRACTIC
Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest drug-free and non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal related issues. Research has also shown chiropractic care to be helpful in treating neck pain and headaches. In addition, osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia may respond to the moderate pressure used both by chiropractors and practitioners of deep tissue massage. Chiropractic is a great alternative treatment of doctor visit for back pain, which could be more money saving in long term.
During your first visit, chiropractor will ask questions about your health history and perform a physical exam, with particular attention to your spine. Your chiropractor may also recommend other examinations or tests, such as X-rays.
During the chiropractic adjustment, your chiropractor will position you in specific positions to treat affected parts. You will be positioned lying facedown on a specially designed, padded chiropractic table for best comfortability for the entire process.
The chiropractor uses his or her hands to apply a controlled, sudden force to a joint, pushing it beyond its usual range of motion. You may hear popping or cracking sounds as your chiropractor moves your joints during the treatment session.
Some people may experience minor side effects for a few days after chiropractic adjustment. These may include headache, fatigue or pain in the parts of the body that were treated. Please consult us if the symptoms persist.
