A chiropractor is a highly trained medical professional who is familiar with the structure of the skeletomuscular system and its issues. Chiropractors operate from a philosophical standpoint that the biomechanical nature of the body, as well as its structure, can lead to complicated medical problems and pain, but bringing these elements back into alignment and balance can restore a patient’s health.
If you are suffering from chronic pain, a chiropractor, with the knowledge gained from formal schooling as well as direct practice, can perform manual adjustments to return you to optimal health.
Once the spine or other joints are returned to full mobility, the entire body can recover from a host of medical issues. Our chiropractor is an expert in this field and is more than qualified to address any of the problems that you have when you first walk into our office.
What Does a Chiropractor Do?
In addition to a thorough examination of the skeletal system, especially the spine and its alignment, a chiropractor will conduct an extensive case history with the patient so that the treatment plan addresses the entire situation. After a thorough physical examination, including manipulation of the body to determine problems with alignment, the chiropractor can then develop a treatment plan to address the specific issues that the patient is presenting.
Subsequent visits address these issues with an array of approaches, including manual manipulation of the body, known as “adjustments.” These manipulations target the affected areas with trained hands that can bring the body back into full alignment, allowing for the optimal flow of nerve impulses, energy, and muscle movement. As a result of these chiropractic services and adjustments, back pain, neck pain, and joint pain can all receive the relief that patients seek.
How is chiropractic care different from visiting a regular general practitioner or a physical therapist? Beyond the manual manipulation of the adjustments, the chiropractor really focuses on treating the whole patient.
Once alignment is restored, subsequent visits may be necessary for adjustments to fine-tune, maintain, and restore this balance even further.
Chiropractic care with us goes beyond the process of manual manipulation and adjustments. Since we treat the entire patient, our office embraces further treatment protocols to maximize the effectiveness of the chiropractic visit.
