What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care is a natural, drug free method used to help patients reach a variety of health goals. The goal of chiropractic care is restore and prevent injuries, in addition to provide back pain relief. Chiropractic care is considered to be a safe treatment for sudden injuries or acute lower back pain. Chiropractic care consists of custom treatment plans to help each patient specifically.
What Conditions Can Chiropractic Care Help?
Chiropractic care can help a variety of conditions, illnesses, or injuries. The most common condition that chiropractic care helps is vertebral subluxation. Vertebral subluxation results when the spinal bones have improper motions or positions that affect the nerve communications. Vertebral subluxation can be caused by a number of different things, including:
- Misaligned vertebra due to a slip, fall or accident
- Poor posture that causes misalignment
- Joint damage that leads to joint swelling
- Tight back muscles that pull the vertebra into misalignment
Chiropractic care also helps alleviate other conditions, illnesses or injuries, such as sciatica, low back pain and neck pain, headaches, ear infections, colic, neurological conditions, frozen shoulder, scoliosis and athletic performance.
What Should I Expect from Chiropractic Care?
Generally, chiropractic care appointments begin with a thorough medical history and physical examination. Lab tests or diagnostic imaging can also be conducted if needed. Using the results from the initial appointment, the chiropractor can establish a treatment plan to target specific joints and areas using various chiropractic adjustment techniques.
There are a wide variety of chiropractic techniques that utilize controlled, sudden force to help alleviate the condition by enhancing joint function and resolving joint pain. One session typically only employs a handful of chiropractic techniques. A popular technique is the high-velocity, low-amplitude (HVLA) thrust. The HVLA usually results in an audible “pop” that is caused by the controlled, sudden force. Another technique is spinal mobilization with low-force. This technique is employed due to certain conditions, pathologies, or other factors based on the patient’s comfort. Rather than using twisting of the body in combination with forceful thrusts, this technique can use the activator method, the toggle drop, the Cox Flexion-distraction, the McKenzie or the Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT).
In addition to manual manipulations, chiropractic care can also employ other therapies, including warm or cold compressions or physical therapy modalities.
