Chiropractic is a drug and surgery free modality of treatment concerned with the diagnosis, management and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system (spine); Chiropractors practice under the consensus that there is a significant interrelationship between the spine and the nervous system.
The Chiropractic Concept
Chiropractic is the science and healing art of correcting and restoring joint mobility.
Chiropractic care ensures that the spine works properly to maximize normal nerve flow and minimize pressure on the nervous system from stress and postural strain or injury, leading to pain, dysfunction, and decreased quality of life.
Achieved by hand through gentle specific spinal manipulations in the form of high velocity, low impact thrusts.
Chiropractic care aims to relieve pain, promote healing, restore and maintain function, reduce the likelihood of re-injury, restore proper motion, and prevent accelerated degenerative spine disease.
Chiropractic is not just about relieving pain; it’s about enhancing even the seemingly healthy person’s function, performance, and quality of life.
Comprehensive Chiropractic Healthcare
Comprehensive chiropractic healthcare goes much further. It all comes back to wellness, defined as not simply the absence of sickness. Wellness suggests a proactive lifestyle approach, which results in optimal physical, emotional, and social well-being. This involves learning how to get healthy and stay healthy by practicing positive health habits and giving up harmful ones. To do this, we teach people to listen and respond to their bodies warning signals before illness interrupts life’s activities. The chiropractor’s role is to facilitate and increase the potential for health so we can live life to its fullest.
What to expect after treatment
Many patients feel immediate relief following chiropractic treatment, but some may experience mild soreness or aching, just as they do after some forms of exercise. Current literature shows that minor discomfort or soreness following spinal manipulation typically fades within 24 hours.
After a pain-relief phase, and concurrently during treatment, rehab is used to help you get back to functioning optimally, with recommended stretches, strength-building exercises and activities to be performed at home.
The recommended stretches and exercises will complement and improve the effectiveness of your treatment.
