What does a chiropractor do?

Chiropractors are qualified to improve the body’s function by means of spinal manipulation.

If you are suffering from chronic back or neck pain, you should consider visiting a chiropractor.

Chiropractors are trained to specialize in spinal manipulation, which helps to alleviate pain and improve the overall physical function of the body. A broad range of issues can be addressed by a qualified chiropractor, including certain injuries, back pain, neck pain and headaches, to name a few.

What is chiropractic treatment?

Chiropractic treatment involves a range of safe and effective correction methods. Chiropractors typically use hands-on spinal manipulation techniques, plus some other alternative treatments designed to properly align the body’s spine and musculoskeletal structure. When a chiropractor manipulates the body, some level of mobility is often restored to the joints and the healing process is promoted.

Before beginning treatment, your chiropractor will go through your medical history with you in order to confirm whether spinal manipulation is suitable for you. He will also discuss your specific symptoms and concerns so that a customized treatment plan can be formulated for your needs.

What are the benefits?

Chiropractic treatment and the spinal manipulation techniques that it involves are considered safe and effective. The treatment is also often suitable for the management of headaches, and conditions like osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia.

The main focus is to offer patients pain relief for a range of issues impacting muscles, bones, joints, ligaments and tendons. It is sometimes used together with other medical treatments, although it can be used as a treatment on its own, depending on the issue.

Is it suitable for everyone?

Although chiropractic care has a number of benefits, there are a few cases in which the treatment is not appropriate.

Generally, individuals with osteoporosis, spinal cord compression or inflammatory arthritis are not suited to spinal manipulation. Patients who take blood-thinning medications may also be advised against undergoing chiropractic treatment.
