What Is Chiropractic Medicine?

At its most basic, chiropractic care is the practice of using a hands-on approach to bring the body into proper alignment. While we won’t get too deep into the specifics, the main idea is that your body’s structure and functionality are deeply intertwined. If your body’s structure is off, then you can expect your mobility to be limited and your day-to-day quality of life to be compromised. Check out this video from our friends at Haavik Research they do a great job explaining what is going on!

For example, if your spine is out of alignment or fixated due to poor posture or tight muscles, then you might find that you spend more time on the couch due to pain, take more medications to relieve the pain, and generally don’t feel as well as you could. A simple adjustment could be all you need to maintain proper alignment, though you may need to schedule more frequent treatments. Regardless of how extensive your personalized treatment plan is, many of our patients walk out of the clinic feeling significantly better than they did coming in. Chiropractic care is also used in treatment plans for:

  • Leg pain (sciatica)
  • Neck pain
  • Repetitive motion strains
  • Chronic headaches
  • Car accident injuries
  • Athletic injuries

While chiropractic treatment predominantly focuses on adjustments or spinal manipulation, there are other therapies and treatments that can be applied in addition to spinal manipulation. Among other treatments, myofascial release, gentle exercises, weight loss, and addressing underlying metabolic issues are some of the most common ways to help a patient treat ongoing pain. Your individual treatment will vary according to your specific needs.
